Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners

Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners


Could you feel the good vibrations on the red carpet last night?

Hopefully, you got a chance to watch the Emmy Awards. In this blog, we will experience it again. In case you missed it, you'll also appreciate my recap.

To begin with, the interviews set the tone for the night. There was a little something for everybody. Are you much into fashion and style? Did you enjoy seeing the actresses and actors strutting their stuffs?

We saw John Travolta and Amy Schumerarrive on the scene. Naturally, Amy said something inappropriate. And Travolta was cool like he's been- for the past 40 years.

The Emmys literally started up their engines as host Jimmy Kimmel hitchhiked with TV and showbiz's biggest stars. To start it off, he got a little Carpool Karaoke for us from James Corden. Of course, Jimmy was kicked out of the car because of his bad singing. Other celebrities including Julia Louis-Dreyfus kicked him to the curb.

Entertainment award shows are the highlight of an entertaining season. After all that hard work, talent is rightly rewarded by the Television Academy. There were tons of winners Sunday- too many to name everyone.

Jeffrey Tambor was the talk of the Tinseltown because of his performance in Transparent. It seems Transparent owned the night. In fact, Jimmy Kimmel handed Tambor an Emmy when the show first started.

Tori Kelly sang a beautiful Hallelujah honoring the memories of those we lost this year ending with Prince. Louie Anderson won the first award. Were fans pleased to see Mr. Robot take home an Emmy or what? Plus, Game of Thrones and Veep were recognized with multiple wins.

Moreover, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story won big. Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown took home Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. You also saw Key & Peele receive their respects they paid dearly for on the comedic side. It's all about sacrifice.

To be honest, the Emmys were dull but enjoyable with coffee. I don't fault the nominees because the TV shows themselves are incredible. I suggest more music and/or better clips next time. Otherwise, Everything was all good.

Who Do You Choose? James Corden Vs. Seth Meyers

BY: GURU JAY



Who do you watch late at night? After Jimmy Fallon, Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert, James Corden and Seth Meyers comes on.  How can you watch both at the same time?  Who do you choose? It depends on what you want.
Go with James Corden for pure entertainment. He offers the full package. However, if you want some spin with your ride, Seth is the one.  Do I sound like a car salesman? That’s the point.

Picture buying a brand new set of wheels off my dealership...The James Corden or the Seth Meyers. They both provide premium entertainment at an affordable cost.

I remember the very first Corden's Carpool Karaoke. Stevie Wonder was behind the steering wheel getting ready to drive. I've always been wonderful and from then on I became a James Corden fan.

The comedic actor’s performance in Begin Again was noteworthy. I also like how on The Late Late Show he calls everybody out at the same time plus his tag line “And this is The Late Late Show.”  I used to blog “This is the Guru Jay” when I first started.


Now, Seth Meyers handles his business. Having Fred Armisen play in the band was a brilliant move.  Bobby Fischer couldn't make a bolder opening.

Seth Meyers uses satire like trash bags. He always throws away a joke. His Saturday Night Live days prepared him well.  I think he's a better interviewer than James Corden.

But I feel JC is the best comedian. That's saying a lot because I used to be more familiar with Seth.  And I love SNL like baseball. Who do I choose?

Entertainment-wise my first choice is James Corden. His show defines variety. He doesn't have an issue with doing it all. On the flip side, I feel Myers specializes in political humor. Guess who majored in political science?

Does Seth Meyers remind you of Alex Keaton/ Michael J. Fox from Family Ties? At the end of the day it's all about sense of humor. Both celebrities have sharp senses. Kinda cheesy?
