Besides the expected "in memoriam" montage, it seemed like every other segment last night at the Emmys honored another person who passed away this year. It was death, death, Jon Hamm's beard and more death. Thank goodness for twitter. These tweets about death brought some life to last night's broadcast.
Congrats to Death on winning all those Emmys.— Official Comedy (@OfficialComedy) September 23, 2013
Ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh, I had the WORST nightmare last night. Bryan Cranston didn't win the Emmy and there was death EVERYWHERE!! #Emmys— Elizabeth Kahle (@Purpletime) September 23, 2013
Tonight’s lesson is that if you endure bloated dance numbers & creepy death applause, the #Emmys will reward the meth-themed show you love.— Steven Zeitchik (@ZeitchikLAT) September 23, 2013
It's weird. The #Emmys have gone 15 minutes without mentioning death.— Biermann (@biermann) September 23, 2013
A fun thing about the Emmys is you can go to the bathroom during a choreography "reality" sketch and return to the haunting specter of death— Alex Blagg (@alexblagg) September 23, 2013
Y'know who else died? George Washington one time! - the #Emmys— Caissie St.Onge (@Caissie) September 23, 2013
"Let's make the Emmys a giant ad for all the new shows, separated mostly by depressing death stuff."— Tim Siedell (@badbanana) September 23, 2013
How can tonight's #Emmys be 100% about death, but still leave out the deaths of some dead people?— Caissie St.Onge (@Caissie) September 23, 2013
Intrigued about the #Emmys' choice to remind us of the grim specter of death all night long. They've been watching too much Breaking Bad.— Mike Roe (@MikeRoe) September 23, 2013
Note for next year's Emmys: Kill the death stuff.— Mo Rocca (@MoRocca) September 23, 2013
