Black people are like ‘Yo Ced, come on man, you got to give Martin Lawrence an Emmy. And not just Martin, see, you got to give Sheneneh one too.’ I’m like, ‘That’s the same person dog.’ Jimmy Kimmel don’t have that problem.”
A color-coordinated Dan Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy and Eugene Levy present the award for outstanding writing for a comedy series.(Television Academy / Associated Press)Along with the host, the evening’s deejay Reggie Watts, announcer MC Lyte, and Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste who performed behind the “In Memoriam” segment (which somehow gets harder to watch every year — you’ll understand that eventually if you don’t yet), there was a satisfying degree of diversity among the presenters, almost as if in expectation that there would not be much among the winners, which indeed was the case. Apart from the cast of “Saturday Night Live,” the exceptions were “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Michaela Coel for writing “I May Destroy You” (a series, itself in competition, for which she was also nominated for acting and directing), “Hamilton” and a Governors Award to Debbie Allen, who, looking back on all the hurdles she had to leap to finally stand there, delivered one of the evening’s few remotely political remarks: “Let this moment resonate with women across the world, from Texas to Afghanistan.” (The late Michael K.

A summer of delta postpones the 'great economic boom'The Delta variant turned the summer of independence from Covid-19 into a summer of hesitation, and the great economic boom that was expected seems to be locked in a perpetual state of 'coming soon.' Face it....this is not a serious country. The Republican Party is now killing tens of thousands of its own, to deny Biden a win on the economy. Funny that there’s no test for the deadly delta variant
