Did I just watch the most feminist Emmys ever?
First there was the amazing Mad Men gay marriage moment in the opening video thing (it’s around the 4:20 mark).
Then, we had a whole bunch of female winners who were over 35 and/or not size fours. “Regular” looking people can be just as talented and luminous as what you’re used to seeing on the red carpet.
Next, we had Jane Lynch’s dig at Entourage, which was pretty hilarious.
And finally, there was the long sarcastic bit about the power and diversity of roles men finally have access too.
Was this awesome and subversive? Is feminism (and lesbians) the new (old) edgy? Was it so not enough (the whole thing was still epically white, among other things) that those glimmers just don’t matter?
And most importantly, did any of it even remotely make up for the fact that we were subjected to the Emmytones?
