Critic Reviews for Emmys: 64th Emmys

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (21)

The 64th Emmy Awards were a competent, serviceable affair. Cable may be ascendant, but the three-hour ceremony -- on the dot! -- was a tribute to old-fashioned network professionalism, eschewing innovation for slick proficiency.

Kimmel kept things moving briskly, if unevenly.

Kimmel captured the night's mood, which was easy-going and casual.

It was hideous. Television had a very good year, and this was not the show it deserved.

The show wants to look as if it lives in the current century. Kimmel could have helped in that pursuit, had he brought along some jokes. Instead, he seemed to be channeling the oddest walkabouts of Andy Kaufman.

As entertainment, this year's Emmy Awards telecast was quite good. Jimmy Kimmel was funny and breezy with his jokes, while the taped bits were all also strong. But as an awards show, this year's Emmy Awards was unforgivably boring.
