Two Scoops Emmy Worst - Part 2!
Welcome back to the DAYS Two Scoops beat-down on this year’s Emmys! For Part 1, CLICK HERE! And if you’d like to see our kinder side, CLICK HERE as we review the best of their year’s awards!
Biggest Acceptance Speech Oversight
The biggest speech oversight was by the producers for not giving soap stars a chance to talk. You know, since 9 out of 14 awards were for soaps! But we’re glad Penn and Teller got their fifteen minute “oh so funny” joke-a-thon time. Conversely, it’s been reported that poor Jonathan Jackson didn’t even know if he won or if it was just part of their bit. Good job, Penn and Teller. And by "good job" we mean someone grab the hook.
Biggest Emmy Oversight
It’s not so much a certain award that went to the wrong person. (Although, we’re sending Rachel Melvin’s phone number to Lexie Ainsworth. They now have a lot to talk about.) The biggest Emmy oversight was the lack of footage from the nominees. It’s not just soaps. We’re talking everything. I addition to being denied footage of Jonathan Jackson’s Lucky rip into dirty cheaters, Liz and Nik; we also missed out on any love for Judge Judy and (gasp!) Sesame Street! That makes us grouchy.
Most Obscure Presenter Combo
The Massey brothers and Kim Matula...um, okay. Did they totally give up and just pair presenters alphabetically?
Worst “Pet Cause” Plug
Well, there really weren’t any “causes” plugged in this year’s event were there? Oh, wait! Yes, we think they plugged the soaps once or twice. JK-ing. The worst cause was for Vegas. The Emmys could have easily been called the Vegas Tourism Board Awards starring Marie Osmond. She might be a little country to Vegas’ rock and roll, but some things just shouldn’t go together – like her singing and our ears.
Worst Overall Moment
Oprah’s award was so terrible, it was funny. The Emmys invented an award specifically for Oprah and not only did she not show up, but she made the decision well ahead of time not to come and pre-taped a message. In her place we got a bunch of footage from her show and a strange Skyped in type performance from Celine Dion. It was the equivalent of waking up on Christmas morning and instead of opening actual presents, you get pictures of all of your presents, which you can view by playing a power point that Santa emailed to you. That’s totally the same thing!
So ends our bitch-fest. Ah, Emmys – better luck next year! For soap fans, the entire show was a huge slap in the face. Not even one snazzy montage for the acting nominees? Not even one soap star singing? Not even – well! The list of “not evens” could go on all night. So with that, we’ll simply repeat, “Better luck next year.” Oh! And why was Kelly Monaco given special credit in the opening sequence? Another stumper hopefully answered next year.
