Backstage at the Emmys: Take 1

Well, back here in this air conditioned tent which is more pleasant that I thought it would be. Just got into a tussle with The Hollywood Reporter folks because I snagged one of their internet connection, Thot it was mine…sheesh.Turns out I don’t have one, Two big guys in tuxes, looking very serious, walked up to me and said: “Can you PLEASE disconnect immediately?” Geez, didn’t their mommies teach them how to share? So, I gotta use a dial up connection and had to have our tech guy talk me through it. This is after a 40 minute power outage AT OUR TABLE ONLY. I’m so glad I came early for all of this fun.

Before the H.Reporter peeps started yelling at me, I’ chatted with awards expert Tom O’Neill about what he thought would happen during the telecast. He says: “I think (host) Conan Obrien has a tough job to make teloevision’s biggest night fun. The other networks have counter-programmed, no one’s clearing the airwaves like they used to. ABC is airing the first “Pirates” movie, HBO is airing a season finale.”

And he didn’t even mention that CBS is airing a fresh episode of “Big Brother 7.”
