The writing for The Emmys was incredibly bad and the show seemed to drag on forever. I’ve had this job for a dozen years and it was one of the worst awards shows I can remember, but that could also be because life just sucks lately. One of the more confusing bits was with Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen. They were offstage on a set, the camera kept panning to them eating and since it was the 70th Emmy Awards they were supposed to know Emmys history and didn’t. Honestly I kind of tuned it out, but it was a real missed opportunity to showcase past Emmy winners and great television. (They did kind of acknowledge that by honoring Betty White, who at 96 took a little while to reach her stride on stage, but still has it. Also the Reparations Emmys were very well done and funny. That was easily the best segment.)
Maya Rudolph is not known for her staid or sensible fashion choices, but at least her styling is usually pretty. She didn’t even have that going for her last night. These are the two dresses she wore, on the red carpet and during the ceremony. The first one wasn’t bad, it would have been a lace nightmare on anyone else but compared to the ruffled colonial nightdress she wore on stage it was practically high fashion.
