They had a big party on Saturday night and as usual a few people won some awards.
The Emmys are a glorified local industry night out. The stations that win often glorify their award; an award, by the way, that is literally paid for by the station.
This happens too: lots of people get drunk. And that's OK because generally on a Saturday night at the Hilton, it's perfectly allowed to get plastered at the Nor Cal Emmys. God, it takes 4 hours to watch the show, I'd want to get hammered too.
This just in: most of the local TV people have brains and get it: few outside of the Bay Area TV news circles don't care about the Emmys. They hardly care about the real national Emmys.
The only real reason anyone even has an iota of interest is to hear who really got uber-plastered and made an ass of themselves and what married guy got laid in the back of a limo.
One guy who has about 30 of the statuettes puts them in his garage. Once, after winning, a producer from a local sports cable outlet brought his Emmy to an Oakland bar. I know: I was there. Unfortunately, he picked a bad night to celebrate. All the women had already left.
The Emmys need a re-branding.
Next year I'm going to emcee and sing songs and dance. That would be a better show and we can all get plastered and have an orgy.
Now you want to talk about a show.
