A night of Black excellence as told by GIFs!

The 2015 Emmy Awards... It's hard to put all our thoughts into words, so we're going to tell it the best way we know how - GIFs!

Speaking of the winner's circle, Regina King’s reaction was priceless!

We can't wait to see what the 2016 Emmy Awards will bring! #WhatATimeToBeAlive
