The 2021 Emmy Awards would possibly as effectively be referred to as “CBS’s Wacky Evening of Skits n’ Bits,” as a result of that’s made up a real hefty chunk of what’s gone down. Maybe essentially the most notable of the pre-taped segments was the “Emmy Losers Assist Group” sketch, which was an actual cute (albeit lengthy) deal with for followers of TV trivia. Cedric the Entertainer leads the circle of longtime entertainers, zero-time winners, starting with Scott Bakula, who laments that he’s been within the enterprise since 1976 with out an Emmy to his title. Jason Alexander might have been nominated seven years in a row for George Costanza, but it surely by no means led to a win. Alyson Hannigan is confused about whether or not or not she was the mom on How I Met Your Mom, and Zooey Deschanel is there too, cursing up the storm about her lack of an Emmy. The funniest beat of the sketch is when Fred Savage pops his head out from behind a digicam; starring in a present once you’re 12 and happening to direct 20 episodes of 2 Broke Women is a thankless job, apparently.
So did we want the Dr. Phil cameo? We get that it matches with the vaguely psychiatric vibe of the “help group” bit, and yeah, he doesn’t have an Emmy, however we’re not feeling it on this in any other case candy and innocuous bit. Return to your house of horrors.
