Every moment that is delighting -- or infuriating -- Emmy viewers at home.
The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards took over Twitter Monday night as the star-studded audience wandered down the red carpet leading into the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Just like our winner's list, we'll be updating this live throughout the night.
Sandra Oh Loses...Again
If you're looking for a happy story about Sandra Oh, keep scrolling. (Her mom is adorable, her outfit was stunning and she made history by getting nominated! Woo hoo!) Unfortunately for Oh and her fans, she lost out in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category to "The Crown" star Claire Foy, who even gave a shoutout to the woman that would have been the first actress of Asian descent to win in the category. It was the sixth Emmy loss for the actress, who was previously nominated in the Supporting Actress category for her work on "Grey's Anatomy."
even claire foy recognizes that sandra oh should have won the emmy so i will accept that— E. Alex Jung (@e_alexjung) September 18, 2018

Thandie Newton Comes Out as Effin Atheist on TV
The "Westworld" star stunned viewers with her age-defying beauty on the red carpet, then blew them away with her confidence while accepting the Emmy for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
"I don’t even believe in God but I’m going to thank her tonight," she began, and then appeared to drop an F-bomb on NBC while starting to express her gratitude for being "so blessed."
I was pretty sure I loved Thandie Newton but turns out I for sure love her— Mara “Get Rid of the Nazis” Wilson (@MaraWilson) September 18, 2018

Teddy Perkins From 'Atlanta' Makes a Quiet Cameo
This moment flew under the radar, but we imagine it will be trending on Twitter once more people catch on to Donald Glover hanging out in the audience as a white character from his hit FX comedy series "Atlanta." Glover played the character, Teddy Perkins, in an episode that garnered five of the series' 16 Emmy noms. Viewers spotted Perkins give a congratulator hug to Bill Hader when he won for his performance in "Barry," and then later in the evening was back in his seat with no makeup on.
Donald Glover totally dressed like Teddy Perkins to get that award smh my mans deserved that 😭 pic.twitter.com/1ir9YVZUTb— Elise Swopes (@Swopes) September 18, 2018
Regina King Is First Person of Color of the Night to Win an Emmy
The actress picked up her third Emmy, this time for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for Netflix's "Seven Seconds," and Twitter was here for it, especially since she was the first person of color to win a trophy Monday night.
"Really? Say word," the actress said to kick off her improvised speech. "Wow, I didn’t have nothing to say because I wasn’t really expecting this, but I am so grateful television academy. Y’all are my friends, my peers, thank you, thank you, thank you."
"This is amazing," she continued. "I wanna curse right now. This is good."
Regina King has won 3 Emmys in just a 4-year span. She is a legend and a queen. Now can we please get her more leading roles? #Emmys— Courtney (@CourtneyAOrtega) September 18, 2018
There are very few people you will find in Hollywood that literally everybody roots for.— Holly Robinson Peete🧚🏽♂️ (@hollyrpeete) September 18, 2018

THAT'S RIGHT YOU BETTER GIVE REGINA KING A STANDING OVATION YOU FOOLS— Kevin Fallon (@kpfallon) September 18, 2018
That Marriage Proposal
Someone finally took advantage of being the center of the world's attention at one of these big Hollywood award shows and proposed to the love of their life. While accepting the Emmy for director of a variety special, this past year's Oscars director, Glenn Weiss, asked girlfriend Jan Svendsen to marry him.
"You wonder why I don't like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife," Weiss said.
She said yes after he slipped his mother's ring on her finger on stage. It was beautiful, and Twitter generally agreed. Even Netflix's Twitter account shed a tear, which blew our minds, because we didn't think streaming services had feelings. But now we're woke.
Despite the undeniable sweetness of the moment, a lot of viewers couldn't help but wonder what kind of TV history would have been made if she said, "Nah, I'm good."
This is so pure I am crying pic.twitter.com/FNu0TPPRwV— Netflix US (@netflix) September 18, 2018
This was great but if she had said no, it’d have been the greatest moment in live TV history. #Emmys— Jordan Zakarin (@jordanzakarin) September 18, 2018
But… what if he lost? #Emmys— Frank Pallotta (@frankpallotta) September 18, 2018

Betty White, Because Betty White
This TV icon can do no wrong and the 96-year-old actress got a standing ovation when she was introduced, because of course she did, she's Betty White. The star of television classics "The Golden Girls" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" has racked up a stunning 21 Emmy noms and five wins over the course of her seven-decade career.
"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. And Twitter went nuts celebrating her awesomeness.
God thank you for finally giving us what we need, Betty White. #Emmys— Fortune Feimster (@fortunefunny) September 18, 2018
Angela Bassett Is How Old!?
"American Horror Story" star Angela Bassett didn't need to do much to catch everyone's attention. In fact, she just needed to put on a dress and be herself, because that alone had people marveling over how she looked so damn good at -- ready for it -- 60 years old. She presented an award alongside 38-year-old comedian Tiffany Haddish.
Why does Angela Bassett look YOUNGER than Tiffany Haddish?? #Emmys— Tre'vell Anderson (@TrevellAnderson) September 18, 2018
Y'all. How tf does Angela Bassett look that damn good? I can't take it.— king crissle (@crissles) September 18, 2018
Angela Bassett is 60 years old and she looks younger than I did at birth. #emmys— Linz DeFranco (@LinzDeFranco) September 18, 2018
Sandra Oh's Mom
The "Killing Eve" leading lady arrived with the possibility of taking home not just her first Emmy, but making history as the first woman of Asian descent to win Outstanding Actress in a Drama. (She's already the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated, so she's already made history.) Yet it was her date that made the biggest splash. Not only did viewers fall in love with the adorable woman's outfit for the evening, but they loved her earnest affection for her daughter in front of the press.
"I'm so proud of her," Mrs. Oh gushed to Variety, then kissed her daughter on the cheek.
"Oh my God, that happened on film," Sandra joked.
Sandra Oh's mom wore a hanbok to the Emmys! There is a hanbok at the Emmys! Forget K-pop, THIS is the sign that Koreans have arrived. https://t.co/GZCtfBw1GR— Albert Kim (@MagicBranch) September 17, 2018
Sandra Oh on the possibility of making history tonight: “If there's a way of saying to a young girl, 'You can do this, you can be a part of culture in this way,' I hope to be a part of that. I really do.” #Emmys pic.twitter.com/JOFOBaUfhV— nerdy (@nerdyasians) September 17, 2018
Henry Winkler Wins His First Emmy -- Even Though He Was the Fonz
Yeah, can you believe it? The man who became a television icon for playing greaser Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli on 255 episodes of "Happy Days" finally won an Emmy. After six swings and misses over the course of his very long career, he took home an Emmy for playing an eccentric acting coach on HBO comedy "Barry," which also scored star Bill Hader an Emmy.
Winkler, who was truly ecstatic, relished in the moment and delighted viewers by telling his kids they can go to sleep now since daddy won. His youngest "kid" is 35.
Henry Winkler 1/4 of the way to his EGOT!— Ken Jennings (@KenJennings) September 18, 2018
“If you stay at the table long enough the chips come to you” — I’m here for how excited Henry Winkler is to win— Doree Shafrir (@doree) September 18, 2018
'You can go to bed now!' Henry Winkler's children were born in 1978, 1980, and 1983. I enjoy this man.— Rebecca Keegan (@ThatRebecca) September 18, 2018
I saw that "Henry Winkler" and "The Fonz" were trending and I really thought he was dead. Now I see that he won an Emmy. This has been an emotional rollercoaster. As a side note, I didn't realize that Fonzie's death would make me as sad as it did for those 5 terrible seconds.— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) September 18, 2018
