  • 2007 Emmys -- the worst awards show ever

    I liked that the Sopranos did well, but the show itself was the biggest snoozefest ever for a televised awards show. I was bored from the beginnning. The circle in the round stage idea was a huge flop. And what was with those cuts to the big disco ball? Also, I couldn't believe all the technical glitches. Does anyone else here think this was the worst ever?

    the cuts to the disco ball was censorship at its finest... all live events are tape delayed so they obviously said something controversial, like speaking against the current reigning government and their foreign war policy perhaps? I'd like to know what Sally Field said..

    but you are right, this one was worse than last year's show...

      She said (censored part in bold): "If mothers ruled the world, there wouldn't be any god-damned wars in the first place."

          Because they want it to look like a technical gaffe and not blatant censorship. It helps maintain the illusion of "live" televsion.

            This was not the worst awards show ever. No even close. I don't watch the Oscars anymore.

            It was nice seeing Terry O'Quinn win. Jaime Pressly too. Both gave touching speeches.

                Well, my wife seems to agree with most of you about the telecast... not well accepted. At first I thought the round circle stage was a bit refreshing ... then, after noticing the winners were having their backs toward their colleges I felt different about the concept.

                So, I agree about the stage and cutting away for the censorship, I was troubled by that... especially when Sally Field gave her speech, what was it did she say??!!!???

                  The "theatre in the round" idea would have been just fine, except that they spent the whole show treating one part of that stage as the front and ignoring the rest of the audience, when they should have consistantly adjusted the podium and performers between commercial breaks to allow the whole audience a fair amount of perspective.

                      Ray Romano also got censored for a sex joke and Katherine Heigel got censored for letting the word "sh**" slip out.

                      With all of the heavy fines being heaved at networks and radio stations for swearing you can't blame the producers for being preemptive. Yeah, a bleep would have sufficed, but they were obviously prepared for any "wardrobe malfunctions" with the cut to the globe standing at the ready.

                        The cut to the "god shot" was probably more to keep us from reading their lips, not so much about their boobs popping out. With no time to pixillate people's mouths during a live show, they opt for the god shot instead. Just guessing.

                          Well, Heigel managed to mouth the word before they cut away from her.

                          I don't think any station has ever been fined for someone mouthing a word. I think they were more concerned about the actual words making it over the airwaves and the FCC fining them heavily for it.

                            The Emmys have degraded to a popularity contest a long time ago, so I didn't even watch. Forgot it was on, actually.
