I give less credibility to the Emmy Awards than I do the Oscars, which makes sense considering the Emmys honor television and, generally speaking, I don’t watch television. What I mean is, I don’t watch *scripted* television. I’m all about True Crime documentaries, shows on the History Channel like THE SECRET OF SKINWALKER RANCH, or *real* reality shows like DARK SIDE OF THE RING. But regular telly? Not so much. There are a few notable exceptions. Near the top of the most notable is WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. I never miss an episode of that one, and it isn’t just because it’s my job to keep up with it. I’d be just as passionate about viewing if I never wrote about it at all. It’s just a fabulous show.
Surprising, though, to see it get any attention from the Emmys. It didn’t get enough: the show received a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series and some other nominations, but where were the acting nominations for the individual cast members? Or Mark Hamill in his guest appearance? The show probably won’t win any of them—for all the reasons that I don’t give the Emmys much credit—but it’s nice that the normies have taken notice, anyway.
