Worst: Where Was the Watercooler Moment?
For all of the good, bad, and ugly moments during this year's Emmys ceremony, there wasn't any one particular thing that stood out as truly "holy crap we must discuss this the next day"-worthy — no Alan Alda cartwheeling as he accepted an award, or Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus passionately (and unexpectedly) kissing, etc. Presenters mostly played it safe; many of the acceptance speeches were lovely and poignant, but lacking that sort of urgency or message-boosting that gets talked about the next day. (Jill Soloway's "topple the patriarchy" cries probably came the closest.) Everything was just fine. Which is not the worst thing you can say about an awards show. But it doesn't exactly make for must-see TV.
