No matter what they did on Monday night, the Emmys were bound to seem like old news. Bumped from the originally scheduled date of Sept. 18 and dropped into January because of the writers and actors strikes, the ceremony came at the end of a two-week stretch that had included the Golden Globe Awards and the Critics Choice Awards, both of which had already given awards to a lot of the people and shows that won at the Emmys.

And yet it didn’t really matter. The show, which celebrated the Emmys’ 75th anniversary, was itself a well-done tribute to nostalgia fueled by reunions of casts from “All in the Family” to “Cheers” to “Grey’s Anatomy” to “The Sopranos.”
