With righteous fervor, Sheryl Lee Ralph belted out the poignant lyrics from Dianne Reeves’ 1994 song “Endangered Species” during her #Emmys acceptance speech.

Here, Ralph and Reeves sit down to discuss the powerful moment and the song’s message.
About 1,000 miles from the glitz and glamour of the ceremony unfolding in L.A., Reeves was grocery shopping in Denver when a friend called to relay the news: “I was like, ‘No, I’m not at the Emmys, I’m in Denver; I’m at home.’”
“I rushed home. It had already happened, so I said, ‘Let me go to Twitter.’ I typed my name in and bam, bam, bam — it was just there,” said Reeves. “I just kept looking at it over and over and just cried. What a moment. What an incredible moment.”…

@TedLasso Chronicles, #4… because I don’t really know what to call these things I write…

On Beard

Prologue: about the Beard episode- I have no idea. This isn’t about Beard After Hours. Apologies, I still don’t fully get that one *dodges flying objects thrown by Beard stans*
Also: I don’t know some of what I’m writing here- I’m no psychologist. These are my hunches.

Ted Lasso, tho, isn’t about father/son relationships as lots say, it’s a loving portrayal of the intense subject of trauma told in a brilliantly funny and relatable way.

#TedLasso won at the #Emmys for comedy series. In one of the show's scenes, this 26,000-seat stadium looks filled to the brim, but what most people don't know is the crowd is mostly made of fake people who weren't even filmed in a stadium.
This soccer scene was filmed during the pandemic, so in order to keep actors safe and to limit the number of extras on set, production team @Barnstorm_VFX had to get creative using fake people.
In order to make the shot look real, the Barnstorm team used a few different techniques including crowd tiling, plate extras, and motion-capture animation.

So I can say that @Soundsaboutleft and I have eaten a lot of things.

Earlier this week, though, we decided to hunt down and eat an Emmy.

#Emmys #Emmys2021
The thing you need to know is that Emmys aren't actually made of medal. At least not entirely.

They're actually a type of fairy that lives on the island of Catalina. They're captured and then encased (while still alive) in copper, nickel, silver, and gold.
Now we could have searched in the various woods, etc. looking for one OR we could go the smelter hidden on Catalina Island and steal one in a cage.

So that's what we did.

We even took the glass bottom boat to get there. Very cool.
