I'm really not one for awards shows.
Don't get me wrong. I used to be.
As a little girl, I loved watching all the glitz and glamour of the Oscars and the Emmy's. I couldn't wait to see what all the beautiful Hollywood A-List was wearing. I guess I was a little bit like Cinderella --if she was watching the ball on TV, yo.
Either way, as I became an adult, I was (and still am!) always curious about, often left breathless by and sometimes a little bit horrified at the fashion on display at the average American awards show.
But the thing that irritates me about them, other than the fact that my favorite actor, writer, director, or producer (etc.) NEVER wins, is the not-so-hidden agenda of practically everyone at the venue: hosts, presenters, winners, lifetime achievement awardees, people in the crowd, the wait staff, the rats outside in the alley way, some guy shouting aloud from the open window of a passing cab. #EnoughAlready
Look, unless you get up there and advocate for a mandatory four-hour work week across the board, I'm not interested, 'kay?
If I want a bunch of political propaganda shoved down my throat, there is no shortage of platforms from which to choose, you dig? I know where to find 'em...and how to avoid 'em -- except at The Emmy's et al.
Just open the envelope, please and thanks.
P.S. There is one thing I really do agree with co-host Michael Che on, though: we all need to be thanking Jesus a little more often; 'specially after we just won an Emmy or something, Capisce?
P.S.S. Darren Criss DID get an Emmy. Finally, one of my faves won!! #ThatsOne
