The 50th-anniversary celebration airs live on Friday (Dec. 31) at 8 p.m. EST/PST on ABC.
The creative, Stillz-directed visual features the pop star experiencing lust, love, and heartbreak.
The list of Black nominees include Issa Rae, Zendaya, Kerry Washington, and Sterling K. Brown.
Janelle Monae's energetic performance made the crowd rise to their feet for a standing ovation.
And the black nominees are...
“I’ve been directing for 20 years in the theater, and I’m directing an episode of Season 3 myself.”
"Oh my God, I gotta read. The category is love, y'all. Love!"
This year’s theme is “Notes On ‘Camp.’”
