"This is the theme of what's happening throughout Hollywood", said O'Neil. I don't care that suddenly there's a guy in a headset onstage now, I don't care that suddenly the accountants are on stage. TV viewers know they'll never see all the series necessary to call the Emmys.

Which ought to make me a natural in this anti-expertise age, right?

Prediction: Ivory, "Call Me by Your Name".
