I have an unsettling theory to put forward. Do you think that maybe Kerry Washington is the embodiment of a cliché? You know the one, right? A person who is as beautiful inside as they are out? Look, I know, I’m on little sleep and it seems saccharine in the light of Monday morning. Full Story

“The only thing that separates women of colour from anyone else is opportunity.” Go ahead. Let the line sink in. In fact, go even further and allow yourself to acknowledge that if you saw those words being spoken, you were a part of a moment.  “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there. Full Story

Look, if Jon Hamm didn’t win, people would riot in the streets. (Just kidding, a bunch of people would just complain on Twitter.) It certainly was his to lose, and it wouldn’t be the first time a long-running character walked away empty handed (like Steve Carell for Michael Scott and Hugh Laurie for House. Full Story

I really had to hold my breath for a second to think of what Tina Fey’s dress reminded me of. The image sprang into my head immediately but I had to wait for it to sort of self-locate, because it was so specific. Ready? There is a part in the book, not the movie, ‘Circle of Friends’, where the character Benny buys a dress for a dance but her parents are going to see it, so her friend makes her a ‘pleated modesty vest’ so that the parents won’t freak out. Full Story

As I previously mentioned, I have a hard time with the Emmys. If Game of Thrones illustrates the television academy’s slow-on-the-uptake ways, then nothing better captures the essence of “Emmy fatigue” than Julia Louis-Dreyfus. JLD won her sixth Emmy as an actress in a comedy series, of which four are for Veep. Full Story

The Emmy Snubbing of Amy Poehler

I have this bad feeling about what happened to Amy Poehler. Sarah and Maria have had various takes on the concept of people who win over and over again, and I pointed out that Claire Danes has nomination ennui.  But Amy – Amy is not the same as some of those people. For example, she’s got a million jobs. Full Story

Elisabeth Moss, Emmy Barbie?

Looking up pictures of Elisabeth Moss’s magenta dress, one outlet described her look as Barbie-esque. Um, Elisabeth Moss doesn’t look anything like a Barbie, and I certainly don’t think she’s trying to. Yes , her dress is bright pink, her hair is blonde and she has blue eyes. Full Story

Tatiana Maslany’s Emmy Suit

What would happen if I didn’t evangelize at all in this article?  What if you told me that you probably already know what I’m going to say, and we just talked about her suit? Let’s try. I loved that suit, but I think it’s emblematic of the reason why Emmy voters don’t go Maslany’s way – at least not yet. Full Story

Jon Stewart’s Farewell Emmys

Here is another case of the Emmys making themselves irrelevant by giving trophies to the same people over and over. I get it—Jon Stewart’s tenure at The Daily Show is over, and his wins for Outstanding Writing in a Variety Series and Outstanding Variety Series are his send-off from the television academy. Full Story
