Good.

Judge Judy won two for a show that is in syndication. At this point, I think it's safe to say everyone gets an Emmy just for participating.

But in other news,  Doctor Who won a Daytime Emmy.

I won an Emmy a few years ago, and all I had to do was watch Family Feud and the occasional episode of Maury.

There are only four soap operas. Do they really deserve their own category anymore?

At this point, I think it's safe to say that, apart from The View and soaps, everything on daytime TV is syndicated.

It's funny to see categories where only 2 or 3 are listed as nominees. What a way to feel shunned.

Does the fact that Roman Polanski is a pedophile and deserves to be in jail lessen the fact that Chinatown is a great film? Does the fact that Mel Gibson is a homophobic, vainglorious anti-Semite mean that his films and performances aren't great? Kevin Clash's performances as Elmo are exceptionally good, regardless of what he's done in his personal life. (Of course, should it turn out he's guilty, he should enjoy his awards from his jail cell...)

Mel is a douche, but he didn't commit genocide.  He didn't even rape an underage girl or boy (or whatever Elmo allegedly did).

Hollywood blackballs people all the time for petty things. If you can't blackball a sexual criminal, that says a lot about priorities.

If they blackballed all of the sexual criminals in Hollywood, there wouldn't be a Hollywood. The same reason why they don't do drug testing at video game development studios. And why they don't blackball athletes with felony counts against them.

It isn't a serious crime.  The law in most states classifies it as a misdemeanor.  Only once you start getting multiple convictions can it move to a felony in most jurisdictions.  Of course if there is an injury or death it is a serious crime, but getting caught DUI can be expensive and embaressing, but it isn't murder (despite what MADD may want).  It certainly isn't a serious sex offense like Roman Polanski drugging and raping a minor or statutory rape like Kevin Clash.  I will take a booze hound any day over a kiddy diddler.

The victim of Roman Polanski was consenting. Noone consents to being killed by a drunk driver. You say you'll take a booze hound over a kiddy diddler until you or a loved one is horribly maimed or killed by someone that just 'had a few' on his way back home from work.

WTF?  She was a drugged passed out 12 year old girl who he ass raped.  No, no she did not consent.

A drunk driver makes a bad judgment call on their ability to function.  A child rapist makes a sober conscious decision.  Yeah, I'm going to pick the booze hound over a child rapist.

Roman Polanski's victim did not consent. She couldn't consent because she was under age so she wasn't capable of consent.  In additon  she was drugged and unconscious when he sodomized her so she can't consent when she was unconscious.  She just didn't want the case brought up because she has tried to put the incident behind her (and potentially got a nice fat payoff from Roman Polanski to shut up about it).  He never faced justice because he skipped out before sentencing because he believe (rightfully) that the plea negotiated wasn't going to be honored and instead he was getting jail time.

See, I have to different categories: People who have despicable beliefs (like Mel Gibson) and people who have done despicable acts (like Roman Polanski).  I am happy to patronize the former and boycott the later.

In what possible world is a child who was drugged into unconsciousness "consenting"?

In news that has nothing to do with directors sodomizing 12-year-olds or gay puppeteers, David Tennant won an Emmy.  That's just farking fantastic.  He is such a great actor, besides his work in Doctor Who, and even though this wasn't for one of his more well-known roles, it's still great that he got some kind of official recognition.
 
2013-06-17 12:29:45 PM  
David Tenant won an award...cool!

Maybe Matt Smith has a future in Children's TV. He has the personality for it!
