Happy Monday, y’all! The Emmy hangover is real.
Even though I didn’t have the opportunity to watch live last night (I’m all about that Outlander life), I was pleasantly surprised by the winners who raked in the awards. Black Mirror! The Handmaid’s Tale! Riz Ahmed! Donald Glover! It was a remarkably good Emmys, all things considered.
Here are some links to kick off your week:

- Big Little Lies took some awards last night, and this slightly older piece outlines one of the reasons this miniseries is so deserving. (Elle)
- Between American Horror Story: Cult and IT, evil clowns are having their own renaissance. But when did the trope of the Evil Clown start? (Nerdist)
- This year, a good portion of the Emmy nominees were proof that sometimes it pays to be a villain. (UPROXX)
