Emmys: 60th Emmys Reviews

December 30, 2019
Ah well. There's always next year... and it's going to take at least a year to erase the memory of this year's ceremony.
December 30, 2019
It was lame. Like, suuuperlame. There were so many annoying and baffling things about the show that it's hard to pick out just one.
December 30, 2019
The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards felt even longer than usual. And that's not even counting the deja vu moments.
December 30, 2019
Lest the reality TV hosts make the Emmys look too trendy and opportunistic, the show was peppered with uninspired references to classic TV.
December 23, 2019
The five reality-show hosts up for the Emmy in the category oversaw a frequently unwatchable show, completing the dullest opening in at least 20 years.
December 23, 2019
Mercifully, the lackluster hosting team remained AWOL for long stretches of the show, which alternately dragged and felt rushed. Ultimately, the reality recruits became as innocuous as the lava-lamp video wallpaper on the rear screens.

The telecast was very uneven, and the opening was atrocious.
December 23, 2019
Because the fab five tied up a lot of time with minimal payback, the show never found a rhythm.

Where do we begin? We don't know, which we guess puts us in league with the show's five emcees, who kicked things off with an awkward, run-on non-bit about how they'd failed to prepare an opening bit.

Having five hosts was a bad idea; using the five nominated reality-show hosts turned out to be a much worse idea than it initially seemed.
December 19, 2019
If we come away with nothing else from this year's Emmys, let us all agree that having a host with some experience actually entertaining people is not a luxury, it's a necessity.

[The hosts] may be expert in running their respective reality shows, but Mandel's repeated exhortation "We have nothing" proved all too accurate
December 19, 2019
We had to suffer through the worst hosting job in Emmy history -- a flop so bad they needed five people to pull it off.
December 19, 2019
The quintet just stood around, shooting the breeze like bored strangers at a bad trade-show awards dinner, waiting for the buffet line to open.
December 19, 2019
The Emmys hit a 60-year low Sunday night when five reality- show hosts bombed with an opening that emphasized the frequent vapidity of their genre. Now we know why reality shows are scripted.
