2018 Emmy Awards: Every Must-See Red Carpet Look

From that opening number taking aim at diversity to The Fonz's big win, here's what you missed!

Honoring the greatest in television, the 2018 Emmy Awards went down on Monday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

This year, the ceremony was hosted by "Saturday Night Live" stars Michael Che and Colin Jost, who popped up all night long for comedy bits between categories. Aside from the opening monologue, however, none of the later appearances were all that memorable.

Standout moments included a wedding proposal, a big musical number with Kristen Bell and one "Westworld" star dropping the f-bomb.

The Opening Number

The show kicked off with a huge musical number featuring Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson explaining how television has made great strides in diversity this year, or as Kenan put it, "we solved it."

The song included lyrics like, "You're welcome Asian people, we gave you that one show."

Kristen Bell and Tituss Burgess then joined them to riff on fixing sexual misconduct in the industry. "We solved it, banished every creep who broke the law," sang Bell, "and now they're serving hard time in that Arizona spa."

Seemingly referencing Louis C.K.'s return to standup after his scandal, Burgess added, "They've been away 9 whole months, now let them all come back!"

The additions kept coming, as Sterling K. Brown came to talk about political diversity, while Ricky Martin popped up to say the song was "too white."

The only person now allowed to join: Andy Samberg, who asked, "Is there any room in this song for a straight white guy like me?"

The Monologue

Che and Jost followed up the number with their opening monologue, which touched on everything from #MeToo to Roseanne Barr, as they celebrated those in the audience "who haven't been caught yet."

"This year the audience is allowed to drink in their seats, because the one thing Hollywood needs right now is people losing their inhibitions at a work function," joked Jost.

Colin then compared this year's events with those of 1949, when the first Emmys were held. "Gas was 17 cents a gallon, a new home cost $7,000 and we all agreed that Nazis were bad," he said.

Che took aim at NBC, home of "SNL," joking, "Our network, NBC, has the most nominations of any broadcast network. Which is kind of being like the sexiest person on life support, it's not great."

They then both joked how no one at any network ever wants to hear, "Ronan Farrow is on line one," before Che called out "The Handmaid's Tale."

"I don't know if you've seen it, but 'The Handmaid's Tale' takes place in an imaginary future where an entire group of people are forced to work and make babies against their will," he said. "It's what black people call history. It's 'Roots' for white women. It's 'Roots' with bonnets."

Speaking about the cancellations and pickups of shows like "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "Last Man Standing," Jost then added, "and Roseanne was canceled by herself, but picked up by white nationalists."

"Roseanne is actually moving to Israel, I mean damn, how messed up is your life when you have to go to the Middle East just to get peace of mind?" asked Che. "By the way, congratulations to Laurie Metalf, that's incredible. You know how great an actress you have to be to get nominated for 'Roseanne' now. That's like nominating a cop for a BET award, it doesn't happen, it'd be weird."

The Fonz Wins Big

Believe it or not, Henry Winkler had never won an Emmy Award before Monday night. After being nominated six times, he finally picked up his first trophy for his supporting work on "Barry."

"I wrote this 43 years ago," the 72-year-old TV veteran said accepting his award. "Alright, can I just say Skip Brittenham said yo me a long time ago, if you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you and tonight I got to clear the table. If you get a chance to work with Bill Hader or Alec Berg, run don't walk."

He got a mini-standing ovation after his speech.

Betty Freakin' White

The Emmys decided to give Betty White some time on stage, simply because she's Betty freakin' White. The "Golden Girls" star has racked up 24 nominations since her first in 1951, winning 8.

"Little did I dream then that I would be here and it's incredible that i'm still in this business, and you are still putting up with me," she said, after getting a standing ovation. "Believe me, I'm thanking you. It's incredible that you can stay in a career this long and still have people put up with you. I wish they did that at home."

"All I can say is, it's such a blessed business to be in and how lucky can I be and how much I say thank you to each and every one of you."

That Proposal

Oscars director Glenn Weiss had the most emotional moment of the night when he proposed to his girlfriend on stage while picking up his award.

After revealing that his mother passed away two weeks ago, he said, "Mom always believed in finding the sunshine in things and she adored my girlfriend Jan Svendsen. Jan, you are the sunshine of my life and mom was right, don't ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why you don't call me my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife."

The crowd -- including Leslie Jones and Benedict Cumberbatch -- went WILD, as she went on stage and accepted his proposal.

Thandie Newton's Shock

Nobody looked more genuinely shocked to win on Monday than "Westworld" star Thandie Newton, who picked up a trophy for her supporting work on the HBO show.

She looked surprised in her seat, clutched her chest when she walked on stage and dropped an f-bomb during her speech.

"I don't even believe in God, but I'm gonna thank her tonight," she said. "I am so blessed, without this I am even so f--king blessed. To work with the people that I have gotten to work with ... I can't believe I'm here."

"Drag Race" Makes Herstory

[[__inactive:kaltura-video:0-tdkxqdpi__]]

"RuPaul's Drag Race" became the fourth show to win Outstanding Reality-Competition Series ever, since its creation in 2003. It also became the first show to take home the series and hosting awards in the same year.

RuPaul Charles spoke on behalf of the 140 queens who have competed on the show when he snatched up the award, dropping his now-iconic catchphrase from the show before sashaying away: "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else? Can I get an amen up in here? Let the music play!"
