The Emmys: Live And In Non-Person
Miss Alli: I'm certainly glad they're bringing the cast out for a salute, since the Emmys have never given this show a chance to shine.
Joe R: That's very true. But your precious Tim Daly gets some face time.
Miss Alli: This is ridiculous. You would never see the Oscars do a tribute to a movie during a year it's still in competition. You can't salute one competitor over another DURING THE AWARDS.
Joe R: I have to say, over the years Edie Falco has become much more personable and happy at these kinds of events, but she's the only one.
Joe R: Gandolfini always looks like you just dragged him out of his living room while he was watching the game.
Miss Alli: I just don't understand expecting everyone to sit through a billion goddamn speeches by everyone involved in this show later, and also this. Why?
Joe R: It also...it's not cool, for lack of a better term. Who wants to be the show that's appreciated in its own time? Or worse, over-appreciated in its own time.
Miss Alli: I just feel like...it's an awards show. Their long line of awards is their recognition.
Joe R: Yeah, it's a weird kind of running tribute. Not even Seinfeld or Friends got this.
Miss Alli: I mean, I watched it sometimes. I get it. I know it was good. But there's this ridiculous treatment of it as if it's not a television show, but a PHENOMENON that you must RECOGNIZE, and...like, it's possible to not have it be your cup of tea, as it isn't mine. I just feel like it's absurd for there to be this coronation when it's also being showered with awards.
Joe R: Yay, Sally Field!
Miss Alli: Presenting lead actress, mini or movie.
Joe R: Mirren v. Messing.
Miss Alli: I have to think Mirren, but I wonder if Messing takes it in a weird thing. And it's Helen Mirren! Suck it, Red!
Joe R: Helen Mirren: "Enough, people. Let me sit down at one of these things."
Miss Alli: She looks good, except that what those shoulder straps are doing is...weird.
Joe R: Lewis Black. Stand-up interlude!
Miss Alli: Oh, Lewis Black bravely takes on screen-corner network bugs.
Joe R: Cranky Grandpa complains about advertising! Did you turn the channel to 60 Minutes?
Miss Alli: Can't work my remote!
Joe R: Too many buttons and computer chips!

The Emmys: Live And In Non-Person

The Emmys: Live And In Non-Person
Joe R: Snack break #2!
Miss Alli: Seriously.
Joe R: The cast of Jersey Boys solutes The Sopranos. Not at all on the nose!
Miss Alli: I find "Walk Like A Man" a bit...upbeat? For this?
Joe R: I tell you what. Carmela Soprano probably saw Jersey Boys five times, though.
Miss Alli: "Can't take my eyes off of you...or you'll shoot me in the face."
Joe R: What's butcher than the toe-tappin' Broadway tribute to the mob series? The toe-tappin' Broadway medley tribute.
Miss Alli: I seriously do not get this, with the footage of Ade getting tragically shot and the happy music.
Joe R: It's as tone-deaf as the best nonsensical musical performances on these awards shows. Debbie Allen should have choreographed.
Miss Alli: I'm certainly glad they're bringing the cast out for a salute, since the Emmys have never given this show a chance to shine.
Joe R: That's very true. But your precious Tim Daly gets some face time.
