'Working in Silicon Valley is very stresh-dull.'

The 2015 Emmys take place on Sept. 20, but you probably need a refresher on the nominees. With reenactments by kids, of course. 

The awards are heavy on Netflix and Amazon shows, and the reenactment of Orange Is the New Black zeroes in on Piper’s narcissism, while Transparent does the same with the show’s whole dysfunctional family. The plot of The Last Man on Earth is eviscerated (“The premise of this show is extremely convoluted”), and Homeland offers a chance to hear adorable kids talk about domestic terrorism. 

Kids channeling Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a little too perfect, though.
