The Emmy Awards were on last night. Which, I’ll be totally honest with you, I didn’t know until they were more than halfway over, and even then only because I saw highlights popping up on Twitter (X?) while I was scrolling and watching old sitcom reruns.

I couldn’t tell you who won what, nor do I particularly care. But there were at least a few moments during the show that caught my attention, largely thanks to just how nauseatingly and rabidly left Hollywood has become, to the point where even an awards show meant to commemorate good writing and acting has become a soap box for all manner of perversion and lies. (And, lest you be tempted to say, “Who cares?” - touché, but these are the people creating the garbage that flows out of your television and seeps into your kids’ brains.)

Without further ado, here are a few of the wokest moments from Monday night’s latest display of Hollywood narcissism.

1. That moment when Ru Paul accepted his award for…I don’t know, something they think he did that no one in the real world cares about…and used the moment to plug crossdressing men in spandex reading stories to young children.

2. The moment Jennifer Coolidge was so stunning and brave and thanked “all the evil gays.”

3. That moment when Niecy Nash-Betts took her win for Outstanding Supporting Actress and used it to thank herself before going on a diatribe about “unseen and overpoliced” black women.

4. When Matty Matheson and Ebon Moss-Bachrach, who as far as I'm aware aren't actually gay, locked lips for no real apparent reason and it was...weird.

I'd say I'll remember to watch the whole thing next year, but I'm already scheduled to clean my baseboards that night.
