Dlisted: The Podcast, Episode 11 – Why Weren’t The Emmys Just One Long Betty White Tribute? And Other Questions
Another good question would be: Why isn’t this podcast episode just one long Betty White tribute? We do get into Betty White, but then we also talk about other Emmys stuff like Michael Che and Colin Jost’s hosting skills, the proposal that melted my heart for a millisecond, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (or Mrs. Measles as I call it repeatedly) winning everything, and the time in the olden days when Emmy-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race namechecked Dlisted on an episode. Allison and I also talk about Stormy Daniels ruining Mario Kart for everyone, Bert & Ernie’s gayness, and the possibility of Mayor Kanye of Chicago. We end with a little game of Emmys trivia that involves The Golden Girls and sex toys, naturally.
Note: I mention in this episode that Dick Van Dyke won the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Emmy for The Dick Van Dyke Show, a sitcom, in 1964. Wikipedia gave me that bit of info, and 1964 was a year when Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy and a Drama were combined, so technically I was right. Don’t @ me!
