If you've ever wondered what it feels like to win an Emmy, this is as close as you'll get to experience making your way onto the stage and delivering an acceptance speech to a crowd of your peers. At least until we can convince the cast of Mad Men to wear GoPros the next time they win.

Maybe the tenth gen GoPro will approach Red camera quality, but not yet.
