Emmy voters did almost everything they could to ruin the 65th Annual Emmy Awards. They handed too many safe prizes and gave some that were just wrong.
But the awards show overcame the awards themselves to be pretty watchable — if only for their weirdness.
The show was slowed down by some ill-conceived “In Memoriam” speeches. Despite some lovely moments, they fell short by not including the work of the artists being honored with a few clips. And highlighting some people for recognition seemed to shortchange others lost in the last year.
