A third viewer ha scritto, “So I had to watch a 5 minutes year old fly-on-mike-Pence’s-head bit just for Jean Smart and Jason Sudeikis to get played off the stage during their speeches. Literally screw the Emmys…this could be an hour and a half if they cut the garbage and went back to back with the awards.

Can’t stop thinking about how they could have cut that fly skit and given the time to Jean Smart. #Emmy,” concordato un altro.
