In case you missed the TV extravaganza that was the Emmys—a night fueled by sick Donald Trump burns and filled with well-deserved wins for many actors and writers of color—here's a primer on all the entertainment that kept Twitter buzzing late into the night.

Rachel Bloom saying she'll re-sell her Gucci dress after the Emmys.

In a moment of subtle shade on the red carpet, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Rachel Bloom gave the realest response when asked the standard "Who are you wearing?": She bought her black lace Gucci dress off of consignment site The RealReal since the brand wouldn't dress her. It's notoriously difficult for women beyond standard sample sizes to find designers who will lend gowns to them, so her answer was refreshingly honest and hilarious, especially when she followed it up by saying, "Take a look on The RealReal for the dress tomorrow."

When Spicey hit the stage as Colbert's "yes man."

Yes, really, there was a moment when Sean Spicer rolled out a mini press secretary podium for a bit where he told Colbert tonight's show brought in "the biggest Emmys audience in history." (Right after a long Trump roast, FWIW). Melissa McCarthy, for one, looked stunned to see him. It was a divisive moment for many who didn't think his comedic spotlight was appropriate.

Dolly Parton on stage with her 'Nine to Five' co-stars.

The reunion we never knew we needed was the cast of the '80s office satire Nine to Five: legends Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin. They took turns to throw barbs at Donald Trump and Dolly cracked a set of dirty jokes. Needless to say, the crowd went wild.

Lena Waithe making history as the first person of color to win an Emmy for Comedy Writing.

Hollywood still has a long way to go, if the #OscarsSoWhite controversy is any sign, but last night the Emmys championed diversity. Among well-deserved wins for artists of color, Lena Waithe became the first person of color to win an Emmy for her comedy writing on Master of None and took to the stage with Aziz Ansari to deliver one of the best acceptance speeches of the night. She ended her speech with these words: "The things that make us different—those are our superpowers."

Julia Louis-Dreyfus winning her sixth consecutive Emmy award for her role in 'Veep.'

The Emmys has historically been Julia Louis-Dreyfus' for the taking. She's won more than a handful of Emmys for her hilarious portrayal of President Selina Meyer in Veep (and numerous others for Old Christine and Seinfeld). Tonight she made history with the most number of wins for an actor in the same consecutive role, nabbing her sixth Emmy (where no one seemed more Kris Jenner-level proud than Kevin Spacey).

Oprah announcing 'Handmaid's Tale' for the winner of the Best Drama Series Emmy.

In case you were wondering where Oprah went during John Oliver's second Emmy win (he gave her a shout-out both times he accepted an award since she was sitting in the front row), the Queen of TV was prepping backstage to announce the last award of the night for Best Drama Series. She read the win for Handmaid's Tale in her signature game show–volume, "You get a car" voice and Twitter had a field day.
