While it might not have been the smoothest or the most cohesive night of TV awards, the 2019 Emmys were a largely enjoyable affair. A lot of that had to do with the big wins, of course, along with the more emotional speeches.
The 2019 Emmys: strange, sometimes funny, often grating, occasionally miraculous. Without a host, there were bumps and awkward moments, transitions that came out of nowhere and montages forced to do heavy emotional lifting they couldn't support.
It was fortunate that the Emmys led with the comedy categories. The first 45 minutes of the show were solid and speedy, dominated by comics who, it seemed to me, had written or at least vetted their material.
It's a sign of weird times for this business that we're celebrating the best that television has to offer on networks that have been eclipsed, at least in terms of creativity, by cable and streaming competitors.
For every thing that made me confused or frustrated... there were four or five wins that made this normally grumpy critic sit up and go, "Holy cow, they got that right!"... For a show that wasn't very good, that's a lot of stuff that was great.
It was almost shocking, really, the extreme dissonance between the quality of the shows, creatives, and performers rewarded-Fleabag! Billy Porter! Jodie Comer!-and the award show that was produced to celebrate them.
A sluggish and somewhat messy evening of odd segues and handoffs. Meanwhile, it was the viewer's good luck that the nominees in most of the categories were across-the-board stellar, representing some of the best TV made this century so far.
