Lea Michele

  • Emmys roundup

    Last night the Emmys were awarded in Los Angeles and all of television glitterati (and a lot of film stars since the distinction between television and movie stars has steadily blurred over the past decade) showed up to demonstrate their best acting skills by pretending to be entertained by the evening’s proceedings.
    Even Charlie Sheen was on hand to present the award for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. But before he got started listing the nominees, he needed to do some penance. (We are getting close to Rosh Hashanah, after all.) “Before I present Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, my old category,” he began, “I want to take a moment to get something off my chest and say a few words to verybody here from Two and a Half Men. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television.”
    Just like that bit of faux sincerity, the rest of the show felt forced and poorly scripted. Yet unlike every other armchair critic out there, I’m not going to make this post about how dreadful the show was because this was hardly a surprise. The Emmys are unwatchable virtually every year. We’d all be better entertained watching C-SPAN. Book TV anyone?
    Now onto the awards. More ▸
