The only Emmy I care about is Emmy Rossum!

I just want to see Reno 911 season 7, is that so wrong?

Ha, that screenshot is semi-NSFW

I didn't even know what that channel was until Roku automatically added it to my list of channels and then I saw an ad for that show talked about in the article. Deleting the channel and don't care about it.

What is interesting is that people CARE who wins awards.
The industry is patting themselves on the back but they've convinced audiences to care!

Don't get me wrong.  I like tv.  I like movies.
But I don't think I've ever cheered/booed anything that won.

So give Quibi ALL the awards.  What difference does it make?

"Quibi Hubris"

Enjoy.

Yeah, but the going rate is 1.75 billion US dollars, so don't get any ideas.

If this leads to the Emmys being chopped up into a short series of eight two-minute-long segments that can only be watched on a subscription service that nobody wants, that wouldn't be so bad. In fact, do all the awards shows that way.

Watching the enemies a fun game is to see if you can count 5 people of color in the major categories. They do sometimes try to stuff the side categories of people of color because everyone from supporting actor up is white again.

Isn't this a bit like being the fastest kid at fat camp?

I used my free trial to watch the new Reno 911 eps, but since the app is Quick Bites of entertainment (Quibi, get it?), the advertised 12 eps were essentially 4 regular eps with the usual breaks for commercials

Watched this not 30 seconds ago.

It made me cry gasp.

I have not had a conversation with anybody who's watched anything on Quibi in fact I never even had a conversation about Quibi
