The 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards…YAWN!

Sep 19, 2021; Los Angeles, CA, USA; (L-R) Phil Dunster, Bill Lawrence, Brett Goldstein, Hannah Waddingham, Jason Sudeikis, Juno Temple, Nick Mohammed and Brendan Hunt, winners of Outstanding Comedy Series for ‘Ted Lasso', in the press room at the 73rd Emmy Awards at L.A. Live.. Mandatory Credit: Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY

New York, NY (77WABC)- The 2021 Emmy Awards aired last night on CBS, and it’s no wonder why less and less Americans watch Awards Shows. Like most people, we are exhausted from the constant politicizing of everything from mask wearing to vaccines; however, celebrities didn’t seem to get the memo. Comedian/Actor Seth Rogen immediately quipped about how the room had way too many people, and there was ‘no way it could be safe.’ Actor Ken Jeong wise-cracked about Ivermectin and Joe Rogan, and Stephen Colbert cracked jokes at Larry Elder’s expense. YAWN. Shouldn’t we all be practicing kindness when the climate of the country is already hostile? Most watch Awards Shows to escape the reality of everyday life, and to enjoy the humor, fashion and entertainment-which there was none of last night.

Host Cedric the Entertainer-yes you read that correctly, and no it’s not 1997- put forth a great effort, but failed miserably as the evening’s host.  His jokes and monologues were dated and unfunny; we can think of at least 50 others that would have been a better choice, including my 3 year old son.

After going virtual in 2020 (cue Jason Sudekis in a tie-dye hoodie), the Emmys were held in-person this year. The ceremony was limited to about 600 attendees and all were required to show proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test, taken 48 hours before the ceremony. The event was also held outdoors to L.A. Live’s Event Deck at the Microsoft Theater.

Some argue that Conan O’Brien stole the show when he gave Television Academy CEO Frank Scherma a standing ovation and multiple ‘salutes’ as Scherma couldn’t stop laughing during his speech.

As for the big winners and the snubs of the night? “The Crown,” “Ted Lasso” and “Mare of Easttown” took home 10 of the 12 acting awards, while many argue that the ‘Handmaids Tale’ and ‘WandaVision’ were snubbed. For a full list of winners, see below:
