The Emmys

Contribution by Stevie Kirby

The Emmys generally air live in September on tv through cable television deals around Boston. They honor the best in the television industry. The host and the presenters are different every year. The host is usually a nominee or someone from a nominted show. The Emmys are divided between Comedy, Drama, Made for Tv Movies and Mini-Series and each aspect of the shows are represented (acting, writing, directing, lighting, make-up, casting and wardrobe). The acceptance speeches have to be the best part because you never know what they might say and there are usually some surprises. For example, Kristin Chenoweth won for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy last year and her show wasn't on anymore and she gave a hilarious speech about being unemployed and listed some shows she wanted to do. Although, most people probably tune in to see what the stars are wearing and if they look good or bad. But, they have a habit of honoring the same shows and actors over and over again like Frasier winning Best Comedy 5 years in a row and Kelsey Grammer winning for Best Actor a few times. It is always a fun night for people who really love television and it is great to see the actors be themselves instead of the role they play on tv.
