Rehashing the biz of the Emmy Awards

EMMY winner “Lost” is perhaps the best show on TV, an allegory that has a Dantesque flavor. There is a frightening beast, caverns and an underworld not unlike hell. And heaven?

The only thing that trumps human love is love of virtue. That’s why the character of Jack, the noble physician on this island of the lost, is so appealing.

Love and compassion are within -- or they are nowhere.

THE voters for three of the Emmy Awards’ highest honors -- best drama series, best actor in a drama series and best director of a drama series -- should be applauded for preserving the dignity and stature of the Emmy Awards by not placing on TV’s highest pedestal the show and nominees of “Deadwood,” a series relying on numerous scenes of immorality and nudity and a dialogue of primarily four-letter words.

I thought the law now says that our workplaces must be gender neutral. Why does this not pertain to the entertainment industry and its award competitions?

The industry must end its discrimination.

Just give out best performance awards that do not distinguish between males and females.

In terms real and symbolic, it would send a powerful message to the nation and world.

IS it me, or are there other individuals out there who are sick and tired of reading about celebrities at award shows patting each other on the back for portraying an endless stream of meaningless characters, devoid of substance, on boring TV shows?

Come on, people! With death, destruction, famine, racism, homelessness and nature’s fury abounding, is it possible, for just a minute, that you can stop being the center of attention and limit unnecessary, blatantly narcissistic activities to a later date when displaced persons have regained their composure and a sense of stability from the horrific events of the last few weeks?
