General: Food Network »
The Daytime Emmy Awards were held last week, and Food Network didn’t do very well. Paula Deen and Anne Burrell lost in the “outstanding culinary host” category to Martha Stewart. Secrets Of A Restaurant Chef and Paula’s Best Dishes also lost to the PBS show, Avec Eric.
In fact, the Food Network only walked away with one lone Emmy:
That’s Anne Fox.
She’s a director. On Giada At Home.
I still say Anne Burrell should have won Outstanding Culinary Host. Martha Stewart? A lying, thieving, cunty ex-convict who hasn’t been relevant since 1992? REALLY?
And who the hell watches AVEC ERIC other than my 93 year old French neighbor? Total fail.
Anne took her loss well, and tweeted: “Sadly I did not win either of the two emmy’s I was nominated for. So-i went to dinner at Lucques, drank a lot and then went back to my hotel and opened a can of whoop #!@%*# on the mini bar.” Ah yes. A woman after my own heart.
Better luck next year, Food Network. But considering you’ve set the bar pretty damn low with your upcoming programming (Extreme Chefs? A culinary “Dancing With The Stars” hosted by Fieri and Ray?)… we wouldn’t be expecting too many Emmys if we were you.
