Critic Consensus: An impressive array of surprising -- and utterly deserving -- wins can't save the 71st Annual Emmy Awards from its own host-less chaos.

News & Interviews for Emmys: 71st Emmys
The lack of a host - which helped this year's Oscars - seemed to hurt the Emmys, which never gelled.
Though plenty of surprise wins helped keep things interesting for die-hard Emmy fans, this year's show didn't feature enough personality, uniformity, or orchestrated highlights - you know, the things a host typically provides.
Rather than having one pair of awkward presenters, the ceremony ended up trotting out dozens... The ceremony didn't get shorter as a result; it only became more bloated.
In an age of tired and ratings declining awards shows, the Emmys needed to slay on Fox tonight. Instead, like the Wall that protected the icy northern border of what was once the Seven Kingdoms on Game Of Thrones, the whole thing came tumbling down.
Congrats to the winners, but couldn't the Emmy show at least have tried to rise to their level?
