Pat Sajak is willing to buy his Daytime Emmy Award!
May 22nd, 2020 under Emmys, Wheel of Fortune. [ Comments: none ]


Pat Sajak is nominated for Outstanding Game Show Host, and he will do anything to win his third Daytime Emmy Award in that category.

Don’t believe me? Here is what the Wheel of Fortune host wrote on Twitter, “To Daytime Emmy voters: The last time I won was 1998. I’ve been nominated again this year, but who knows how many years I have left? So I’ve made a decision: I’m willing to pay handsomely for your vote. Please contact me through my representative. You won’t be sorry. #1More4Pat.”

Considering he is 73 years old, he might be right. However, the odds are stacked against him because he is nominated along with Alex Trebek, Wayne Brady, Alex Trebek, Steve Harvey, Alex Trebek, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Alex Trebek. I will take, who actually thinks he has a chance of winning against Alex Trebek? Ah, that is why Sajak wants to buy the award, and I lost on Jeopardy.

To see if his evil plan worked, tune into CBS on June 26th to watch the awards show.

The Daytime Emmys is coming back to television!
May 20th, 2020 under Coronavirus, Emmys, Game Shows, Talk Shows, TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]


The Daytime Emmys used to air on broadcast television every year. However, when the ratings dropped, and it was eventually moved to online after airing on The CW and cable networks.

This year has been crazy because of the coronavirus pandemic, and it is benefiting from that fact. Come June 26th, the awards show, that highlights soap operas, game shows, kids shows, and talk shows, will be airing on CBS.

Since COVID-19 is still prominent in Los Angeles, everyone will be participating from home. That should be very interesting. The celebrities did not have to dress up for the Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon, but daytime television is a much different beast. They are used to being dressed to the nines when they are in front of the cameras. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how they dress up for the big night in their living rooms.

It will also be interesting to see what happens when The Talk wins. How will the hosts handle who gives their speech when, and will they talk over each other? That alone is enough reason for me to watch.

Yet, that is not why I will tuning in. I will be doing so to support this genre. Since a lot of us will be stuck at home on that day, why not watch. What else is there to see?

Nominations will be announced tomorrow on The Talk. I expect The Bold and The Beautiful to get nominated. That will give them two consecutive days of good news because they were picked up until 2022.

Conductor Leonard Slatkin jokes about being in Emmys In Memoriam
September 24th, 2019 under Emmys, Jimmy Kimmel. [ Comments: none ]


On Sunday night, the Emmys did their In Memoriam and showed old photos and videos of the recently deceased. There was only one problem, instead of using a photo of the late Composer Andre Previn, they used one of Conductor Leonard Slatkin.

How does Slatkin feel about being killed off by the Emmys? Jimmy Kimmel found him in Ireland and asked him that very question and several more. When the ABC late night host asked him if he is dead, he told him, “Some people might wish that especially my conductor colleagues.: Then he added, Nope, I was really quite shocked to learn that in giving their best to Andre Previn, they wound up giving their worst to me.”

How did he find out he made the Emmys? He woke up at 4a to check the baseball scores, he looked on the computer, “and all of a sudden I see, ‘Oh, I knew Andre was gone a few months ago and now apparently me too.'”

Talking about computers, he got several messages from people checking on him to make sure he is still alive. Which made him wonder, “Why are they sending me messages if they think I am gone?” Which is a really good question.

How does Slatkin think his friend would have reacted? He thinks Previn is laughing in his grave. Slatkin just wishes his friend could have gotten a proper sendoff from the Emmys.

When it comes to the Academy, they released this statement to The Hollywood Reporter about the mess up, “The producers for the 71st Emmy Awards, the Television Academy and Fox sincerely apologize for this error. All In Memoriam mentions on the Television Academy’s website feature accurate imagery of Mr. Previn.”

I think as an apology to Slatkin, they should have him conduct the Emmys next year! Actually, I just want to watch him at work. He makes me laugh!

This is not the first time this happened during an In Memoriam. Back in 2017, Australian producer Jan Chapman was mistaken for her late friend Janet Patterson.

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.
