THE EMMY HANOVER — Monday night’s Emmy celebration was great to see again live. One sees Oprah and you know it’s going to be a milestone event.  But yet again the writing left a lot to be desired. I’m not a huge fan of Keenan Thompson, but he deserved much, much better. Opening with a variety of TV-themes that slowly turned into a mélange of rap wasn’t exactly exciting. In fact, it was a tad tedious and embarrassing.

Sure Sheryl Lee Ralph’s emotional acceptance speech was great, but for me the trio of Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez was just drop-dead funny. I’m still shocked that their Only Murders In The Building wasn’t recognized more. Honestly, I think it’s one of the best comedies of the last decade and Martin remains just an inspiring force of nature.

HBO’s White Lotus won a 10 awards – none more deserving than for Murray Bartlett. Mike White’s epic series was just amazingly done. Jennifer Coolidge won too, although she seemed somewhat addled. Still, she’s ab-fab!

Michel Keaton won for Dopesick; which was just outstanding. Keaton was the first-winner and gave kind of an awkward speech. I remain, however, a huge fan. Geena Davis also won for her Media Center-work and looked as stunning as ever; as a reel ran of all her movies, I realized again what a great actress she was – certainly no more-so than Thelma & Louise. What a terrific and iconic movie!

Julia Garner’s third Emmy win for her Ruth-character in Netflix’s Ozark was certainly justified. She was just superlative throughout that series. I’m sorry that Jason Bateman and Laura Linney weren’t saluted more. The episodes Bateman directed were just exemplary and Linney’s work in their final season was just standout..

A bit about the show’s bar fell totally flat, especially when Keenan shook someone at the bar … and it was Kal. Get it? Most of the audience did not.

HBO’s Succession won for Best Drama and Apple’s Ted Lasso for Best Comedy. Two shoe-ins for sure.

Dominic Patten in Deadline said that the show was just OK, but they were clearly trying to please everyone and play it a tad too safe. He’s right. As of Tuesday AM, it was the lowest-rated Emmys ever!
