    But we won’t get to see Dan Bucatinsky accepting his Emmy for Guest Actor on Scandal. That’s not important enough for the main ceremony and gets shunted off to the creative arts ceremony.

  2. DJ says

    The Guest Actors/Actresses for comedies and dramas are NEVER presented on the main show. They are announced and then they usually come out to give an award. Do NOT make this a “oh boo hoo, the EMMYs hate gays.” Cuz they dont’t. They hate ALL guests equally.

  3. Jerry says

    I didn’t say that the Emmys hate the gays. I said we won’t get to see Bucatinsky accepting his award. We did get to see him with his Emmy and his husband on Twitter several times over.

    We WILL be seeing the choreographer award being handed out instead of seeing Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn receiving their awards as hosts of Project Runway as the Creative Arts swapout.
