Did anyone watch the Emmys broadcast? It was really boring! I thought Neil Patrick Harris did a great job as host. They gave him suckass material — that bit with the guest who kept getting bad seats … what was that about? — yet he managed to make the commentary not feel completely painful. He was actually quite funny.
I thought the dance routine between Maksim Chmerkovskiy and ex-fiancee Karina Smirnoff was really good despite the pre-performance battle they were engaged in.
Beet showed you all the pretty and not so pretty dresses last night, which certainly spares you from my critical and scathing opinions (on this topic at least). I’m just going to say one thing: Heidi Klum looked like an html caret “>”. You know what else I could have stood a lot less of? Kanye jokes. Every single person thought they were very original with all their, “Imma let you finish …” bits. They were not.
This year, they divided awards by genre, yet of course kept the Best Drama and Best Comedy awards until the very end so that they didn’t lose 97% of their viewership — brilliant move on their part. I thought Patricia Arquette looked annoyed to present an award with Jennifer Love Hewitt and I was embarrassed for the addled and somewhat confused looking Bob Newhart.
Yeah, and that’s all I have to say about the Emmys. Because they sucked. The end.
If you care, here’s the complete list of winners.
