I enjoyed the CRAP out of the Emmy's tonight!

And before anyone says this post is out of place, it was as political as I've ever seen, and I frickin' LOVED it. The best part was the last acceptance speech by the creator/producer for the Best Drama show, Succession (For those who haven't seen this show, it's about a family of billionaires -the father, step-mother, and his adult kids) who are so f'upped it's disgusting. My understanding is it's tailored after the Murdoch's. Here's was the creator/producer said:

"For being robbed of the opportunity to spend this time with our peers and with our cast and crew, I think I'd like to do a few 'unthank yous': Unthank you to the virus for keeping us apart this year, unthank you to President Trump (personally I NEVER refer to him in that manner but I want to get what he said word for word) for his crummy and uncoordinated response, unthank you to all the nationalist and quasi-nationalist governments in the world who are doing exactly the opposite of what we need right now, and unthank you to all the media moguls who do so much to keep them in power - so unthank you."

2. The victories for Watchmen and Regina King were especially sweet.

King is terrific in everything she does but she was phenomenal in Watchmen, a show more attuned to our current times than almost any other show on television.

3. He also said Unthank you to Boris Johnson for a crappy virus response as well. It was awesome.

5. I figured it would be political when you said

you enjoyed the crap out of it.

It's all Hands On Deck.. I would have expected them to be political. Everyone who cares about our country & Planet needs to speak out!
