Transcript for The must-see moments from Emmy Awards
Pretty fair to say last night's 72nd Emmy awards were anything but normal, in a pandemic world, no audience, the nominees were watching from home and the winners all appeared virtually. The star-studded event lacked the usual pomp and circumstance. But it was still a night to remember. Honoring the best in TV. Here to recap the surprises, the winning streaks in pop culture, our expert here in pop culture, Mike muse. Good to see you. It's so frustrating, we can't even say the name of the show that cleaned house. The show that up a creek, we'll leave it at that, they swept last night. How did they pull this off? It's one of the most brilliant comedic shows of our current era right now. I was early injury, the timing, the smartness, the cadence and the rhythm that show has together, the cast is a fantastic ensemble, and I think that's what helped to drive the comedy, they're friends off the set that helped with the timing of it. Clean sweep, no surprise and most importantly, T.J., it was well deserved. Mike, it's my favorite show but it's the final season. Hope to see them getting so much credit for what they did. But speaking of credit and making history, zendaya won her first Emmy, she became the youngest person to win for a lead actress in a drama series for her role in "Euphoria." You called it before the show, how did you know? I did. I love "Euphoria" and I think what she did was wonderful. She's a young adult but she was placed in these very adult situations that was very above her age and the age range of a high school student really are but she was able to capture the reality of what young teens are actually going through in an honest way, but she did a great job balancing naievete of being a young person, while putting in these extreme adult situations. She walked that line perfectly. You know, you told us, now the "Creek" show, you were already on board that one. You could zendaya winning. Was there a surprise for you last night? Billy Crudup the biggest surprise of the night. I didn't see that one coming at all. I think it was because succession split the vote. I was looking at keirian in that position. So that was one of the biggest surprise. I don't think any one of us saw that coming. And I'm just curious, obviously, we've never been here before in these times, how did you think how the emmys handled their virtual format last night? I actually enjoyed it. I thought it was fantastic. What I loved to see, guys, how the families were involved, the friends. Some of the actors had the families in the shot. I think that's so deserving, because families sacrifice so much for their loved ones to be in the position that they're in and I think to celebrate it with them was really fantastic. As one of the actors said, to only bring a plus one, having their entire family there was fantastic. They're just like us. Mike muse, thank you so much. We certainly appreciate all of that commentary. We appreciate you, too. Thank you for joining us.
