Lunch Break Videos: Some nice Neil Patrick Harris moments during a very flawed 2013 Emmys telecast
Neil Patrick Harris is one talented dude and a fabulous awards show host but last night was not his or Emmys finest hour.
I’m still stunned at how the winners, some giving heartfelt speeches, were given the bum’s rush off the stage with intrusive music while there was all the time in the world for tributes to Jean Stapleton et al, performances by Elton John and Carrie Underwood (huh?) and a tribute to 1963 that had 1950s I Love Lucy clips and a Beatles song released in 1965.
And please, don’t get me started on Shemar Moore and that backstage nonsense. He’s a handsome man but Dick Clark he is not.

I still love NPH, hope he’s not too discouraged by the way things went, and returns better than ever when he is ready to host again.
