Emmy Awards 2013: The most depressing awards show ever?
Posted by Staff
Oregon Live:

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards show was full of surprises, but not all of them were welcome. Let's start with the host, Neil Patrick Harris. He's been a dynamo of energy, talent and charisma hosting the Tony Awards and in a previous stint hosting the Emmys. He's become the personification of great awards show hosting.

So, who could have predicted that he would be so off his game during Sunday's Emmys show? From an endless, not particularly funny opening segment revolving around him being the Emmy host -- involving past Emmy hosts, such as Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O'Brien -- to a song-and-dance number that didn't make the most of his abilities, Harris never seemed to find his groove.

Harris not being at his best was only part of the problem. For reasons known only to the producers, they decided to spend much of the show dwelling on the deaths of notable TV figures. While it makes sense to pay tribute to those who died this year, why not just do it during the usual "In Memoriam" segment? Instead, stars who had worked with the handful of TV veterans being honored stood and talked about them.
