Charlie Brooker asks everyone to make love
Black Mirror has always been known for its techno-paranoia roots and bleak, bleak stories. But when Brooker won big tonight in the TV-movie writing category, he won for his most hopeful idea yet: "San Junipero," a love story set in a beachy California town. ("I'm gonna do the opposite of what I'd expect to see in Black Mirror," he told us last year, regarding the episode. "If we were just depressing all the time, it becomes too predictable.") True to the story's love wins message, Brooker then tried to incite an orgy with his acceptance speech. "Maybe if all of the beautiful people in this auditorium made love with each other, the world would be a far better place," he quipped, after noting how crappy 2017 has been. They didn't, but, you know, it's the thought that counts.
