This had to happen sooner or later.

John Oliver just won the award for Outstanding Variety Series for his HIGHlarious Last Week Tonight!
Unfortunately for host Jimmy Kimmel, that means having to continue the rest of the show after losing…
But hey, why have a nemesis if he can't kick you while you're down??
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see John Oliver accept the award — and Jimmy take Jason Bourne's verbal smackdown!
Patton Oswalt just made us tear up.
The 47-year-old beat out Amy Schumer, John Mulaney, Tig Notaro, and the comedians behind Triumph's Election Special 2016.
In fact, the funny man genuinely didn't think he had a shot at taking home the trophy, admitting:
"I didn't prepare a speech. I didn't think I was going to win."
But, even though his speech was off-the-cuff, the United States of Tara alum melted our hearts when he gave the sweetest shoutout to his 7-year-old little girl and his late wife, Michelle McNamara, who suddenly passed away earlier this year:
"I want to thank two people, my daughter, Alice, who is waiting at home, and the other, who is waiting somewhere else."
Watch the tender moment (above).
We're so happy for Courtney B. Vance!
At the 2016 Emmys, Courtney made his The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story costars proud as he won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie.
For those who missed it, Vance did an AMAZING job of portraying the late Johnnie Cochran, the spirited lawyer who served on O.J.'s "dream team" and delivered the infamous line "if the glove doesn't fit, you must acquit"!
In the actor's acceptance speech, he gave a short and sweet shoutout to the cast members of the show while also praising his wife… AKA the woman who "rocks" his "chain"! Let's just say Courtney REALLY loves his wifey Angela Bassett!
Obviously, this is a major win for Court considering he beat his costar Cuba Gooding Jr. and fellow nominees Bryan Cranston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, and Tom Hiddleston. Talk about an accomplishment!
P.S. We loved when the star shouted "Obama out! Hillary in!" before walking off stage.
This is how you do a red carpet!
In fact, Miz Dunst made it perfectly clear that this isn't the first time she's attended an award show as she stunned in a black sheer number. How FABOOSH!
Now the 34-year-old may've lost out on snagging the Emmy she was nominated for, but she definitely won the red carpet game. Talk about being an industry vet!
Here's hoping this appearance at the Tinseltown event means we're about to enter a Kirsten-renaissance. Fingers crossed!

Congratulations are in order for Sterling K. Brown!
He scored the victory amid a talented batch of well-known actors including John Travolta (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), David Schwimmer (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), Hugh Laurie (The Night Manager), Jesse Plemons (Fargo), and Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo).
In fact, the Missouri native admitted that he probably wasn't one of the more famous nominees, saying:
"A lot of you may not have known who I was, but you checked the box anyway and that makes me very happy."
The actor gave a moving, heartfelt speech that you can watch (above)!
You go, Sarah Paulson!
The star may have lost out on her nomination for Supporting Actress for American Horror Story: Hotel, but she more than made up for it by winning the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series Or A Movie!
She beat out a talented field, including Kirsten Dunst in Fargo, Felicity Huffman in American Crime, Audra McDonald in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, Lili Taylor in American Crime, and Kerry Washington in Confirmation.
The star of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story also gave a wonderful speech to her date for the evening, the REAL Marcia Clark!
Ch-ch-check out her beautiful winning moment (above)!
Leslie Jones' light continues to shine!
In between award acceptance speeches, the comedienne stole the stage with Ernst & Young accountants and some "third guy" to dress down how little we pay attention to everyday privacy violations. Essentially, Jones finds it hysterical that more money is spent guarding "Emmy secrets" than her naked bod!
Exposing the absurdity of it all, the funny woman joked:
"Don't nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets…. I have a job for you: MY TWITTER ACCOUNT."
Ha! We think that's a perfect job for the smartypants at Ernst & Young, girl!
Ms. Jones went on to quip:
"But I'm butt naked on CNN! I just wanted to feel beautiful!"
Love it. It's obvious NO ONE can knock Leslie off her feet!
