I liked the personal tributes but not immediately after I recovered from the previous one. I’m emotionally exhausted from the ups and downs.
I had to remind myself that Paul and Ringo are actually still alive. Carrie singing was pointless.
More Bob Newhart.
I am team Kerry Washington. Claire Danes just… Kills me.
It just occurred to me that the theme had to be history of television. That was poorly executed.
Tooooooooo many dance numbers.
Jim Parsons over Jason Bateman, Alec Baldwin, Don Cheadle and LeBlanc? REALLY!?
I think Matt Damon should have won.
Thank you Stephen Colbert. My new goal in life is to be described as “cruel and sexy.” (This is no joke).
Kevin Spacey. ‘Nuf said
Producers of the Emmys, please note the following, these are important:
The middle of the show random song was fun and a great time for celebs to take a mass, untelevised smoke break but don’t do an opening skit, a random dance number and then an interpretive dance/reality show/nominee challenge for presenting Best Choreography. Pick one.
Side note, to help you decide on the above - can we PUH-LEEEZ have the guest actor awards aired instead of Best Choreography? Seriously.
If your theme is television history from 50 years ago - maybe do a montage. I realize that the top 3 televised events were JFK’s assasination, the March on Washington and the inception of Beatlemania but find the joy. I think that’s what the Beatlemania thing was all about but then you have Carrie Underwood perform, “Yesterday.” Who is running this show? TV is about escaping the same reality you’re informing us about.
Loved the Ryan Seacrest dig. And thank you for not airing him.
Let Will Farrell present Best Comedy in shorts but not Best Drama. Bad call.
More with the kid with the woobie.
Couldn’t you have found a better pic of Eileen Brennan. I was a little frightened.
Emmy’s - you were like life in a lot of ways. So maybe you were trying to make some gigantic, existential statement about how unpredictable (some of the winners) life is and how you have to roll with all of the ups and the downs (eulogies and such) but…I don’t really think you were trying to be a subconscious commentary on humanity.
In the end, I still love you but this was like food poisoning during a hot date.
