Recap of some less prominent Emmy awards

Best actress in a crime drama where the tough but lovable squad commander turns out not to be secretly gay after all, but rather just lives with his mother: Sarah Lurkins, Cop Patrol

Reality show host most able to make it seem like he and everyone else involved, participants and viewers alike, are really having fun and not living empty, ethically and morally bankrupt lives: Bill Schunnel, Fat and Games

Best director of a show that got on the air only through a cynical calculus that determined just how much less could be spent on production values by spending less on story development, too, so the show would appeal to a less sophisticated, but wider audience who really only want moving pictures with some kind of sound: Verb Handling, St. Louis Grit

Best dramatic scene: Conan O’Brien
