TV Academy Under Fire for Red Carpet Antics

DaytimeEmmysWe did not catch any of the Webcast-only Daytime Emmy pre-show festivities over the weekend. And after reading TVLine editor-at-large Matt Webb Mitovich‘s scathing summary, we’re extra glad about that:

When it was announced that this year’s Daytime Emmys would be streamed online (and not broadcast), surely no one imagined that the accompanying red carpet pre-show would set the bar so unacceptably low, with an interview team that would lob rape “jokes,” talk about “go[ing] lesbian” for one actress and quite possibly not recognize more than five of the people they spoke to.

Daytime Emmy Awards: Days of Our Lives Wins Best Drama, George Lucas Nabs First Emmy (THR / The Race Blog)
In a surprise win, Days of Our Lives was named best drama series Sunday night at the 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which aired live from the Beverly Hilton on HLN. CBS’ The Price Is Right won best game show, while Cash Cab host Ben Bailey won best game show host, more than a year after Discovery Channel canceled the long-running taxi-set quiz show. Meanwhile, CBS Sunday Morning beat out NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America for best morning program honors. TheWrap The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which already won six Creative Arts Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday, took home top honors in the daytime talk category, winning the Emmy for outstanding daytime talk show, entertainment. Overall, CBS ruled the night with a total of eight wins, including two Emmys in one category when Scott Clifton of The Bold and the Beautiful and Billy Miller of The Young and the Restless tied for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Deadline Hollywood In his first Emmy win, George Lucas accepted the award for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program for his Star Wars: The Clone Wars series from presenter Carrie Fisher who joked before opening the envelope, “Our nominees haven’t taken acid, at least not with me — which is, as most of you know, the only way to go. Right, George?” Lucas thanked the TV Academy for including animation in their annual program and gave a shout out to “all those poor souls who toil over their computers.” HuffPost / AP Kevin Clash, the Elmo puppeteer who resigned amid allegations that he sexually abused underage boys, won three Daytime Emmy Awards for his work on Sesame Street. Yahoo! News / AP In a major gaffe, Aisha Tyler of The Talk was presenting outstanding talk show when she opened the envelope and quickly realized she had been given the wrong one. “Oh, interestingly enough this winner is not in this category,” she said. “If I read it out I’m going to give another category away.” The audience at the Beverly Hilton hotel gasped and Tyler vamped while waiting to be given the correct envelope from the wings. TVNewser One show that probably won’t win an Emmy: the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards. Hosted by Good Morning America’s Sam Champion and HLN’s Robin Meade and A.J. Hammer, the show was rife with technical errors, missed cues and an “F” bomb that didn’t get bleeped. Read more

Howard Kurtz Under Fire For Erroneous Report About NBA Player Jason Collins Coming Out (Mediaite)
Arguably the biggest news this week has been basketball player Jason Collins coming out as the first openly gay player in major U.S. sports, but media critic Howard Kurtz thinks Collins has been quiet about one part of his past: his engagement to a woman after dating her for eight years. Kurtz stated quite clearly in a Daily Beast post Wednesday that Collins “left out” this detail about his life, but it turns out that was not exactly the case. Gawker On Wednesday Kurtz found — for two different outlets — a dark shadow in the sunny coverage of NBA player Jason Collins’ decision to come out as gay: Collins was at one point engaged to a woman. “He didn’t tell the whole story,” Kurtz burbles in a Daily Download video. Kurtz continues: “If you leave out the fact that you dated this woman for eight years and that you were engaged to be married, then you have not told the whole story and I think this really muddies the whole plotline.” Kurtz wrote the same argument for the Daily Beast, that Collins “left one little part out.” Except Collins didn’t leave the detail out. It’s right at the beginning of the eighth paragraph of his long Sports Illustrated piece. NY Mag / Daily Intelligencer Alerted to this glaring oversight, Kurtz quickly tweaked the text of his column to make it factually accurate. “He left one little part” was changed to “he downplayed one detail.” “Turns out it was an edited story” became “He mentioned the engagement to Sports Illustrated, but didn’t dwell on it.” A correction was belatedly affixed to the story long after the changes had been made. BuzzFeed Kurtz: “I regret the mistake I made in writing about Jason Collins’ essay, and I hope I wasn’t insensitive in discussing it. He did a courageous thing by taking this step, but once he put it out for public discussion, it seems fair to raise questions about the account of his former fiancee, who granted several interviews. Obviously Collins or any other gay person can come out in any way they choose, or not come out at all. I don’t think my analysis was out of bounds, but that’s for others to judge.” HuffPost / The Backstory Kurtz has been regularly contributing to, and heavily promoting, a lesser-known media website with no financial ties to his full-time employer. The site, Daily Download, is a regular fixture in Kurtz’s Twitter feed and a place where he increasingly posts his takes on the state of media affairs. But no one is sure why, exactly, he’s so involved with this particular piece of Internet real estate.

Daytime Emmy Awards Returning to Los Angeles

The Daytime Emmy Awards are returning to Los Angeles on June 23 following a two-year stint in Las Vegas, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Wednesday.

The 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will resemble a “Golden Globes” type setting and will be held at the Beverly Hilton.

“We are very excited to bring the Daytime Emmy Awards back to Los Angeles and to such a glamorous venue as the Beverly Hilton,” said NATAS chairman Malachy Wienges. “While we are continuing to speak with various networks and social media sites, we are planning a spectacular evening of stars and entertainment as we honor the best in Daytime Television.”

A telecast seems unlikely this year according to TVGuide.com as the award show might have to settle for an Internet feed instead.
