Can't They Let The Orchestra Perform Music for the Memoriam!
I didn't watch last year's Emmys but I did watch this year with the host, Stephen Colbert. Unlike film, there is an abundance of shows. I didn't watch the series, "The Handmaid's Tale," but I loved watching Ann Dowd's emotional speech. When the series won best drama, the Canadian author Margaret Atwood appeared on stage. I disliked the memorial segment where Christopher Jackson performed a song while the faces and names appeared above them. Sadly, memorial segments are overshadowed by the performer. Can't they just let the orchestra perform while they show moments of the person's life. We lost a lot of memorable people. Their losses should've treated with more respect.
