Once again, another opportunity for those in the business to dress up, eat a rubber chicken dinner, pay a third party, and pretend that anyone accomplished anything.

I will agree with you to the extent of a bunch ego inflated TV people patting each other on the back. Regardless at what level, I don't watch any of these award shows. Watching paint dry is more entertaining and honest.

Last night, they were posting photos with “Emmy ready!”

If you really deserve an Emmy, you're not working in a non destination market. Emmys don't increase the paycheck.

It’s just a racket, a scheme by the Emmy organization to make some quick cash and for low-paid (notice I didn’t say “underpaid”) people to feel better about themselves.

I agree. And I don't think it should be used to brag in advertising for any station's newscasts or personnel. Otherwise, if it makes them happy, let 'em have their fun.

HL101: For someone who bashes the Emmy Awards, I find it interesting that you're the one to start a thread to once again bash your former employers. Maybe there's some jealousy that your work isn't recognized with the Emmy... instead it lines most cat litter boxes these days.

As for the Emmy Awards, congrats to those who won or were nominated. I agree that they're not worth promoting since most viewers don't make their decisions of who to watch based off awards. But if industry professionals want to recognize great work, I say good for them.

1. Who’s HL101? To date, that account doesn’t exist. It may exist after this post, but it didn’t before.

2. My former employers are not media companies. Pharmaceuticals, petroleum, academia, and venture capital. Those are my former business pursuits and I live on that investment income now.

3. I never have and never will work in news, meteorology, sports, or any other media functions. If you have any proof I do or did, please share it. I’m happy to hear more of your lies.

Regional Emmys sure do, but people are still duped and believe they’re worth something.

I believe there are 63 Emmy categories in Michigan, and we'll say 5 entries in each category at $150 an entry. That's over $45,000. What do 63 trophies with engraving cost? $6300?

Oh, they get many more entries than that.

I’ll find out how much a few dozen pieces of plastic cost. Let me make a quick phone call to the Cracker Jack folks.

HL101: as someone who professes that he's not in the broadcasting (past, current or future -- which is a lie), why do you care how much the Emmy board charges for entries for Emmy consideration? No one is forcing anyone to submit their work for judging, so I'm not sure why you seem obsessed over this topic. And I say obsessed because you can go back and check out MULTIPLE years where you've trolled employees at your former employers, WNEM and WEYI
