Covering the Emmy Awards

The Emmy Awards are tonight. I turned down a spot on the red carpet. For some reason, I believe red carpets should be covered by video journalists. At the moment, I don't have a video crew so what's the point of standing for hours waiting for someone to come by and grant me the privilege of a response to an question? I would never ask "Who are you wearing?" or "How do you feel being nominated?" I know those are standard questions, but come on, they are pretty lame (except for the designers who get their free publicity). 

So, like the rest of you, I'll be watching the awards from the comfort of my own home, with the luxury of bathroom breaks whenever I want, and the ability to drink a coke without worrying about "will I have to run to the bathroom?" or "I hope I don't burp." Ha! 

Well, now that I've just written all of this, I feel like maybe I should have applied for my credentials. "Kevin Spacey: How do you feel tonight?" "Lizzy Caplan: Who are you wearing?" Naw. I'm glad I'll be at home. And, I'll probably be wearing my slippers and drinking iced tea.
