Neil Patrick Harris hosted this year’s 65th Primetime Emmy Awards & Elton John performed a tribute to Liberace in honor of the HBO biopic Behind the Candelabra which landed Michael Douglas the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a miniseries or movie.
Michael Douglas’s acceptance speech was the highlight of the night stating to Matt Damon who was also up for the award as Liberace's lover, Scott Thorson & Douglas’s co-star stating, “You were magnificent," Douglas raved to a smiling Damon. "And the only reason I'm standing here is because of you. So you really deserve half of this. So, you want the bottom or the top?" All the mainstream media thought his speech was a bit raunchy but we found it real & refreshing. Behind the Candelabra also won the Emmy beating out The Bible for best miniseries or movie. However The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards was the worst presentation in recent years. Harris was unable to carry the show with his Tony-like performances & displayed a lack of control throughout the broadcast. It was also the saddest 3 hours with tributes to TV legends & icons who have died. You have to ask yourself what were they thinking to make this annual tribute of the best in television into a failing mockery of what it once was. FYI the Emmy pictured above was awarded to me a number of years ago...:)
