Tonight will see the 2019 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, sans host, but with lots of presenters — some of whom have hosted before. Will anyone miss the show having a host? Maybe when Neil Patrick Harris was at the helm, but like the Oscars, I'm not sure anyone will really notice or care.

It's my personal hope that the Netflix mini-series, "When They See Us," takes home every single award for which it's nominated. The docudrama about the five young Black teenagers, falsely charged with raping the Central Park Jogger, created and directed with artistic, searing beauty by Ava DuVernay is mandatory viewing for white people. Mandatory for sure, but don't binge it. Absorb each episode as fully as you can before moving onto the next. It's not easy viewing. But view it and recognize that this is how the system is designed, and it has to change.

As for comedy, I'm torn between Barry, Fleabag, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel...and as always — the best comedy has some amazing dramatic acting thrown in, too. Such is the case with these series, and the Worthington household absolutely tore through each these shows.
