The folks at Mediabistro were kind enough to ask me to chat with them about the weird, morbid, tone-deaf Emmy awards. Here’s the video of me talking with GalleyCat’s Jason Boog and TVNewser’s Alex Weprin.
Dear Television is back this week for the fall 2013 season. Starting next week, we’ll be covering a wide range of topics weekly for The Los Angeles Review of Books. This week, however, we’re writing a guest column at Indiewire’s great Press Play blog.
The theme of our column is the First Annual Dear TV Emmy Anti-Prom, and we’ll be showcasing the snubbed, the losers, and all the other kids who didn’t get invited to the dance. Here’s my first post on Emmy-bait vs. Oscar-bait, popularity vs. prestige, and the snubbing of Parenthood‘s amazing Monica Potter.
