Tom Bergeron has the best response to the Emmys going hostless
August 8th, 2019 under Emmys. [ Comments: 8 ]

Yesterday, Fox announced that this year’s Emmys will not have a host. When Tom Bergeron heard the news, he was envious. He wrote, “If only they’d done that in 2008. I still get facial tics thinking about it 🤣”

You see back in 2008, he hosted TV’s biggest night with Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Jeff Probst, and Ryan Seacrest. It was Anne Hathaway and James Franco hosting the Oscars bad. It was even worse than Rob Lowe singing with Snow White at the Oscars. Therefore, you can understand why he does not want anyone else to go through what he went through. Not everyone can be as good as Billy Crystal (the first few times) and Hugh Jackman.

When it comes to the Emmys going hostless, I am a traditionalist and prefer a host. Too late now. Granted whoever turned them down got lucky because this year’s noms are as boring as Michael Che and Colin Jost hosting last year’s show. Personally, I wish they would have given Seth MacFarlane another chance to host a big show. The Oscars were just not his calling.

How do you feel about there being a host at this year’s shindig on September 22nd?


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?

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.
