Nothing Unites Us In Anger Like A Great Performer Getting Played Off

Awards shows are a careful balancing act where producers must find time for skits, commercials, and acceptance speeches. The show can't really run long because that means delaying the evening news, but that doesn't mean it's OK to play off big stars during their speeches. You could have aired fewer commercials (and charged more for the ad space!) or removed one of those cringe-inducing skits. But no, Emmy producers. You chose to play off Jean Smart during her heartfelt, genuine speech.FOR. SHAME...

The 2021 Emmys In Review: Not Great, Bob

The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards are over. The winners have been announced, the speeches have been given, and now it's time for the afterparties. But how was the show?The opening musical number was a fun tribute to late rapper Biz Markie, while also showing us how great it is now that the stars can all be in one room again. It was a fun, warm moment that seemed kind of informal and genuine. Unfortunately, most of the rest of the night felt stodgy and too-tightly cut, with bad skits that took up va...
