75th Emmys: Biggest snub, biggest win, biggest eyeroll

Who's sitting at home in the gloom, snubbed and blowing smoke, feeling they should have won an Emmy?

The answer: the cast and crew of House of the Dragon who only won one award, for Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes.

They were nominated for eight in total including Outstanding Drama Series, which they lost to the Roy family in Succession in a bitter Game of Thrones battle.

Even though we're still brooding over the fact that The Righteous Gemstones was unrighteously ignored yet again, our award for The Biggest Snub of the Year goes to House of the Dragon because of the prestige it supposedly has. Not so fancy now are we?

Or should that be last year? These 75th awards were supposed to have happened already but the Tinseltown strike pushed them to this week, with a live broadcast on M-Net this morning (16 January), a repeat tonight at 22h00 and coverage of the matric dance dresses on E! during this week.

We've carefully considered the winners and our award for The Biggest Win goes to The Bear:

A) Because it won the most with a total of 10 across the Main and Creative categories,

B) It's responsible for our current life motto: "Every Second Counts" - we have the sign up in the TVSA offices. Tick-tick-tock!

As for The Biggest Eyeroll award... this goes to Last Week Tonight with John Oliver which won Outstanding Scripted Variety Show. Who cares?

The title's annoying and we've had enough of talking heads giving their opinion on current affairs when no-one knows whether anything is true or a lie. How many of these commentators do we have to suffer? Enough is enough.

It's a different story with Trevor Noah who won Outstanding Talk Series because he's ours, he's quit the show and it's his first win in the category, which has been dominated by John Oliver eight times previously. Trevor's rumoured new South African girlfriend must be pleased - thinking "more moolah for moi".
