Press coverage and media outlets love celebrity. The Emmys are all about the recognition of artists and the build up to the ceremony via the red carpet with photos and interviews broadcasted worldwide. Entertainment Weekly was no exception as global press snapped and recorded television celebrities who were also looking to get that extra publicity prior to the big event.

Glitter, glamour, blinding bulbs flashing and designer gowns is the decor and standard from venue to venue during the Primetime Emmys celebrations. Corporate sponsors ranging from the auto industry to liquor companies are happy to attach their name and logos to the high end events. But are they really as alluring as the Golden Globes or Oscars (Academy Awards)? Most who are “in the know” would say flat out “no”. Entertainment Weekly, for all its turnout and precise planning, did not captivate the talented artists who were nominated. Shockingly many of the actors strutted across the carpet and literally raced out of their almost as soon as they arrived. In Hollywood the term “B-List” comes to mind when thinking of television. For the most part, this was an accurate statement for the turnout for EW. One has to really enjoy or admire television to appreciate its actors. Like most mainstream people who watch movies primarily, they would find themselves saying or thinking, “who is that?” This isn’t to say that the actors are not talented and do not command a large salary due to overwhelming success at times. But the Jerry Seinfelds of the world of TV have all but vanquished (except for Sofia Vergara). A lot of hype for this party but the bark was bigger than the bite as they say.
