The Emmy Race…

Emmys race comes down to old or new

 

 

 

It’s youth versus maturity. Change versus experience. A lot like our presidential race. The results could tell us plenty about what we value.

IT’S A race to decide what we value most: the vibrant and new or that which is mellow with experience. Shall we surrender to the seductive nature of callow youth or the guaranteed satisfaction that only maturity can provide?

 

Astonishingly enough, it would seem that the 60th annual Primetime Emmy Awards on ABC tonight have managed to become part of the larger cultural conversation.

 

“Change” howled the Obama campaign from its infancy. “Experience” the Clinton supporters bellowed right back. And we know how that one turned out. Now we are in the midst of a campaign that redefines May-December relationships on both tickets while everyone grows hoarse debating the merits of record versus vision.   (click on ‘Continue Reading’ for more)

Kathy Griffin wins another Schmemmy and ‘F—ing Matt Damon’ is still all the rage

Winning a second Emmy would normally be enough to get you off of the D-list, but taking home the trophy for best reality show will always be D-list. Right?

 

The Creative Arts Primetime Emmys were held Saturday night in Los Angeles, and Kathy Griffin, who’s dubbed them the “Schmemmys” because they’re given out before the actual Emmy broadcast (Sept. 21 this year), once again accepted the award for her Bravo series My Life on the D-List. According to Gold Derby by Tom O’Neil, she started her speech with “Well, well, well! Here we go again, f—ers. Here we go again!” (I still don’t get why she got in so much trouble last year.) Apparently, she and Cesar Millan weren’t the biggest stars in attendance for once. She continued: “Hanks, Gandolfini — what the f—! I’m not going to tell anyone to suck it. I would make love to this thing if I could.”

 

Speaking of making love, Sarah Silverman also accepted an award Saturday night for “I’m F—ing Matt Damon,” which earned an Emmy for its original music and lyrics. According to People, she acknowledged her ex gracefully: “Thanks to the person for whom this whole video was made: Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart — ohh, who’ll always have a place in my heart.”
