2013 Daytime Emmy Awards on HLN

To say that this show was a disjointed, appalling and utterly amateurish mess would be gross understatement on my part!

First of all, the show was hosted by three news people - all of whom tried to be amusing with virtually no success. And whyinhell was the show on HLN anyway? What daytime shows does anyone watch THERE? And whose brilliant idea was it to position a red couch on far side of the stage where various uncomfortable people sat to interview people who had just won a Daytime Emmy, people who were in no condition to be coherent! Giada DiLaurentis was wearing a dress on that couch when she interviewed Scott Clifton and Billy Miller after their joint win that left no doubt in anyone's mind that she is a well-endowed woman. And someone needs to tell Rachael Ray that she should not be displaying HER cleavage - it's minimal and it's seriously unattractive.

The production values were disjointed and sloppy - even to the point that when Aisha Tyler opened up the envelope for one award, the card for the wrong category was contained in it! Dear merciful heavens!

It's pretty doggone sad when the "In Memoriam" segment, which was accompanied by something in Italian sung by Il Volo was so poorly planned that the cameraman couldn't figure out that he should be concentrating on the pictures and names of the recently deceased persons, and NOT on the three singers! Bush league, and that's being kind to them.

All in all, it continues to amaze me that people whose job it is to produce television on a regular basis can do such a disgraceful job of producing their own awards shows!

Shame on you!
