The 5 best and 5 worst moments from the 2019 Emmys
Worst: That super weird opening skit
Despite going host-less this year, it seems as though one of the things the 2019 Emmys didn’t spare us viewers at home from was a super awkward opening sketch.
It’s hard to gauge which part was more cringe-worthy —- Homer Simpson’s quick cameo, or Black-ish star Anthony Anderson wreaking havoc backstage in an attempt to find a worthy host to take over before roping Bryan Cranston in to bring it all home.
It’s possible that one could argue that Cranston saved it with his soothing voiceover tribute to the magic of television. And while the Breaking Bad vet’s involvement did make the whole ordeal more bearable, it wasn’t quite enough to outweigh the fiasco that was the first half of the schtick.
