Alex Trebek gives a speech worthy of his Daytime Emmy win!
May 6th, 2019 under Emmys, Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]


Alex Trebek won Outstanding Game Show Host at the Daytime Emmys yesterday and his speech was award winning. The Jeopardy host, who is battling fourth stage pancreatic cancer, told the audience that he did not want to win due to sympathy votes. Then he realized that last year when he was nominated, he just had surgery to remove two blood clots in his brain that could have killed him.

If that did garner enough votes for him to win, then it caused him to have a realization. He realized he is like Sally Field, as in he explained, “I look at this as a sign, you guys like me and that you value my work.” Then he added, “If that’s the case, I can live with that.”

It is that warmth and humor which is why he won that award. It was not about sympathy votes, it was all about honoring the best game show host on television. He will again next year and he will be there to accept the award again!

On another note, I had not seen Days of our Lives Kristin Alfonso in a while. What has she done to her face? I did not recognize her at first and then I was like, girl stop with fillers.

Limited series are getting a wake up call at the Emmys
April 10th, 2019 under Emmys. [ Comments: none ]


Ever since American Horror Story dominated the Outstanding Limited Series category at the Emmys, people have been questioning the rules for it. This year, the Academy of Television, Arts and Sciences is making some changes. AHS: Apocalypse, Sinner and American Vandal are not eligible this go around. According to Deadline because they used the same characters from past seasons in the current one, therefore they are no longer considered limited and will have to be entered in either the Drama or Comedy categories.

All I have to say is about freaking time. Although I am sure the producers and the networks will like this change. That is because it will be harder for them to win in the larger categories because there are more options and not a limited amount.

Was Louie Anderson the best dressed at the Emmys?
September 18th, 2018 under Emmys. [ Comments: none ]


Every awards show has a fashion theme and yesterday’s was all about the pants suits. Something, call me old, I was not wowed by.

What I was wowed by is Louie Anderson’s rubber chicken tie. He told KABC’s George Pennacchio that a fan made it for him over 30 years ago. It holds up just like his jokes.

Forget Mandy Moore’s low-cut Rodarte or Leslie Jones’s Christian Siriano iridescent pants suit or Tiffany Haddish’s flowing dress that paid homage to the Eritrean flag. To me, it was all about one tie!

What were Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons doing behind Alex Bornstein?
September 18th, 2018 under Emmys, Kirsten Dunst. [ Comments: none ]


While everyone was focused on Emmy winner Alex Bornstein taking off her top as she went up to accept her award, there was something else going on behind her. Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons were out of their seats, kneeled down on the floor.

What were they couple doing? Embarrassingly looking for their seats. Where is an usher when you need one? Oh, he is not EGOT material just yet, so that is why he was not there.

What if newly engaged Glenn Weiss did not win the Emmy?
September 17th, 2018 under Emmys, Marriage Proposals. [ Comments: none ]


The biggest moment at this year’s Emmys is when Director Glenn Weiss won the Emmy and won our hearts by clinching his girlfriend’s heart. He did that by telling Jan Svendsen why he hated to call her his girlfriend. He would rather call her his wife.

At that point, everyone knew exactly what he meant. He was proposing to the love of his life. With some coaching from the audience, she went up onto the stage and he got down on one knee. Thankfully, she said yes.

But what would have happened if he did not win? He told the press backstage, he would have asked her at their go-to post-awards shows spot In-n-Out. Good thing he won!

Why do they have an after awards spot? The two met in 2001 and worked together for 10 years. According to Variety both of them worked on the Tonys and as we know he also works on the Oscars.

Did she have any idea that he was going to propose to her on national television? Nope, the only person who knew was his dad. The person whom he got the ring from whether his siblings like it or not.

Congrats to the betrothed couple who better get married during an awards shows!
