The other reason the Emmys are slipping

It’s not just the screaming SJWs that we change routes to avoid. There’s more. From Brent Bozell at Townhall:

There’s another obvious reason awards shows have been slipping: who’s nominated and who wins. Much like the Oscars, Emmy voters lurch toward excess, the egregiously sexy and violent and progressive/”transgressive” products. Popular shows are often rejected because, well, they’re popular, which must mean they’re not smart enough or they’re just too formulaic and predictable.

Shows on the Big Four networks get slighted for cable networks and streaming services. Here are the top Emmy winners by network in 2017: 29 for HBO, 20 for Netflix, 15 for NBC and 10 for Hulu. By contrast, ABC won seven. Subtract NBC’s nine awards for “Saturday Night Live, ” and it won only six. CBS got four. More.

Reality check: In short, the annual production is no longer in touch with the broad public, and therefore it must market outrageous outrage to get attention. But year by year, the outrage matters less. If the operation moved to Canada, maybe they could get government grants to broadcast to a handful of faithful fans.

      I am an old man, I’ve had my fun, and I am gonna watch that bus crash with the detached amusement of watching a hockey fight. Screw them all. I live up here, far from the social poison of Toronto. I’m looking out for Number One. Bring it on.

    All these things can be classed as fake news. They want them to be important and influential and pump them up, when they’re just not in any way relevant to people’s daily existence.
    Most people are a paycheque away from financial disaster while the government continues to tighten the screws and inflation keeps creeping upward. They don’t have time for the crap they peddle.

    I believe it’s all a conspiracy to relieve the tv viewing public of as much of their hard earned cash as possible. They’ve already got most of us paying for the basic cable we need to see the network shows, so now they must convince us that in order to see all the awesome high quality award winning shows that absolutely can’t be missed, we must also subscribe to HBO, Netflix, Hulu, and every other streaming service and premium channel available. It’s all just one big massive cash grab.

    Next year the Emmy’s will be swept by that classic New Age comedy Transparent. You heard it here first.
