In the most unprecedented year imaginable, with a raging global pandemic shutting down businesses and all entertainment productions, there has almost never been more of a need for something ‘trivial’ like awards or awards shows. We need the distraction, the normalcy of something and that’s how me and my guest approached our conversation about the Emmy nominations for this year and our predictions for the winners.
I’ve known Robert Licuria, Senior Editor at GoldDerby, for over a decade – virtually, of course, as we are across the world from each other – and finally have him on my show and I couldn’t have been more pleased and happy to look at what we think an all virtual Emmy Awards will look like, the historic year of Black acting nominees, discuss our super risky predictions (Zendaya! Steve Carell!) that might pay off and maybe even change each other’s minds as we close in the weeklong Emmy events beginning Monday, September 14 with the first of five nights of the Creative Arts Emmys leading up to the 77th Primetime Emmy Awards, the first ever to be all virtual, on Sunday, September 20.
Oh, and did I mention it’s a video chat? This video podcast runs 1h 30m.
