Miss Amer­ica gets po­lit­i­cal

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

New Miss Amer­ica Savvy Shields has urged the US pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates to “com­pro­mise”. Shields, who rep­re­sented Ar­kan­sas in the pageant, won the crown on Sun­day night in At­lantic City and said: “What I want both can­di­dates to fo­cus on is com­pro­mise. “Our countr y was founded on com­pro­mise. “We’re in a state now where both par­ties just seem to be yelling at one an­other.” Amy Poehler has won her first Emmy Award. The Parks and Re­cre­ation star was jointly hon­oured with the Out­stand­ing Guest Ac­tress in a Com­edy Se­ries gong along­side Tina Fey for their guest host­ing slot on Satur­day Night Live.

De­spite it be­ing Amy’s first win af­ter a mam­moth 17 nom­i­na­tions over the years, the pair were not there to col­lect their award.

Else­where, Game of Thrones and Mak­ing a Mur­derer were the other big win­ners of the night, which recog­nised the cre­ative teams be­hind shows.

Thrones took home seven gongs, in­clud­ing Out­stand­ing Cast­ing, Out­stand­ing Pro­duc­tion De­sign and Out­stand­ing Spe­cial Vis­ual Ef­fects.

Net­flix’s Mak­ing a Mur­derer was also a win­ner, pick­ing up four awards. The show won the Doc­u­men­tary Se­ries as well as awards for writ­ing, di­rect­ing and edit­ing.

Mean­while, RuPaul Charles took home the Emmy for Host for a Re­al­ity or Re­al­ity Com­pe­ti­tion Pro­gram for RuPaul’s Drag Race. Speak­ing back­stage af­ter win­ning the gong, he said: “I re­ally didn’t ex­pect this. I came here think­ing I got in­vited to the prom and I’m go­ing to dance my back­side off tonight, but I didn’t ex­pect that I would have this in my hand while I was danc­ing. “It’s a very spe­cial night not just for me but for all the young peo­ple around the world who dance to the beat of a dif­fer­ent drum­mer.” Down­town Abbey cre­ator Ju­lian Fel­lowes was in at­ten­dance at the event at Mi­crosoft Theatre in Los An­ge­les, which took place over both Satur­day and Sun­day night, and was no doubt thrilled that the drama se­ries won two gongs - hairstyling and pro­duc­tion de­sign.
