Emmy host Anthony Anderson

Despite the spirited entertainment of Anthony Anderson, I couldn't help but think about it all evening: the gala season has just begun, and we already feel a certain weariness of award ceremonies. It should be said that in the space of a week, American networks broadcast three similar ceremonies: the Golden Globes (January 7), the Critics' Choice Awards (January 14) and finally, the Emmys (January 15). This sequence was obviously not planned. Due to the Hollywood screenwriters' and actors' strikes that were in full swing last September, the television industry was forced to postpone its high mass for a few months. As a result? On several occasions on Monday, the winners were the same, which made us want to watch a repeat of the previous two ceremonies. All this, the Grammy Academy simultaneously announced on Facebook, in other words, the distribution of golden statues is far from over.
