People hated last night’s host-less Emmy’s
Last night marked the first Emmy’s celebration minus a host, and viewers were not very happy.
The awards ceremony opened up with a voice-over revealing that Homer Simpson would be taking over as host. But that idea seemed to go away, after being smashed by an animated piano on screen. Next up was Anthony Adderson (Black-ish), with other celebrities taking turns to do their ‘bit’.
