The Emmy Awards kicked off Sunday after stars walked a sweltering red carpet at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg is hosting the celebration of television talent for the first time.

Samberg’s musical opening started with a nod to “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” as he emerged from a TV viewing bunker, joking about how many shows have “wives” in the title. After a few odd Bill Cosby jokes, he delved into diversity and declared “Racism is over! Don’t fact check that.”
