Worst: Emmys Apparently Make You Shorter?
There was minimal fuss at the Emmys this year, from the mostly economical speeches to the subdued staging. But there was one weird element: the bizarro staging, which made many folks appear much smaller than they probably are. When The Daily Show team ascended the stage to accept its Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series, head writer Elliott Kalan suddenly appeared far tinier than the rest of the group (including the 5'7" Jon Stewart). Was there a slope? Were the people in the back standing on a step? We don’t know, and frankly, it was distracting. AP
