God, as a B&B Fan(in file, since I've given it up recently), I was SO excited to see the win for Drama Series. And then they fly a plane over the big moment to plug American Airlines and two minutes of credits?!

What the hell!

I thought this was one of the best telecasts this decade(in terms of the graphics and packaging, etc), but the production company really needed to work out their time management issues.

I am still pissed that we didn't get a Brad Bell speech. We watch to see speeches, not horrible fashion show ripoffs and Vanessa Williams singing more than the one song.

I want this production company to do it again(White Cherry still blows), but they have to work out the timing and push more of those awards to the crafts ceremony. Especially the ones where they know no one will fly from NY to attend.

They should always strive for the show to end 5 minutes before going off, that way they at least have some time for the Best drama speech. And you're suppose to have someone timing everything to see if the time is on track. If it's not, you have to cut stuff out....like Dr. Phil and his wife talking before B&B's reel (it should've been, "Here's the B&B clip!" and that's it).....or Vanessa's second song.

And the Buzz Aldren thing....what was that about? That was another 1-2 minutes.

I think they should have cut the second Vanessa Williams song. There aren't really any unimportant categories they could have moved to another day, and the presentation of the categories was already bare-bones "here are the nominees" with no clips or intros after awhile. Overall I was happy that there even *was* an awards show.

I am fine with B&B winning, given the competition, since I don't watch any of the three shows so can't judge them. Its montage looked like the best -- good mix of action, romance/sex, glamor, and drama.

Given the poor storytelling decisions on B&B I'm glad Bradley or Kay Alden didn't get to make a speech onair. That was the funniest part of the show.

Somewhere Dick Clark is probably thinking, "See what happens when I don't produce this damn show!"

    • Ooh I like, and yes I'm glad the "friends of" are included.      Gosh, they keep stringing us along... I can't wait to see what the final roster for OC will be. Cheering for our girl Taylor Armstrong to make the official cut!  LOL at the other 6 castmembers getting sick and tired of the back 'n forth between Bad Weather. It's like, we GET it.  The dumbass who needs her Bravo paycheck thinks it's hypocritical for cousin to write about about leaving the Mormon church while still being on "the list", while Heather says she's already left in every sense of the word other than making it "official." It took 15 years for Whitney to be officially excommunicated, and Heather doesn't want to bother with the long process.  Like the Miami woman said, it's like a couple that has completely separated without getting an official divorce (but less so, because, it's just a freaking church). Whitney keeps stringing this along and then does that tackyass mess at the end of saying the top 3 secrets she thinks Heather is hiding. If we never speak of the black eye again, it'll be too soon. 
    • So far how would you rank the first 11 years from best to worst
    • I feel like Kelly's recent Variety interview confirmed for me that the tabloids no longer have any power over the media. Kathy Lee was raked over the coals by the tabloids.  There were weekly covers with unflattering photos of her yelling.  And for what?  She was a perky host with a successful commercial career who built two live-in health clinics for people with AIDS.  In retrospect, we know that the constant cruise commercials and KMart clothes were probably used to supplement her lack of income from Live.  When she was involved in a child labor scandal, her response changed the industry and she replied immediately.  When her husband publically cheated with an airline hostess, she stayed on the air and maintained her composure.  Yet, she was the punching bag of the National Inquirer for years.  Kelly learned from Kathy Lee's experience and avoided tabloid drama.  She would appear occasionally, but there wasn't much traction, nor fodder for trash media critiques.  However, 20 years ago, this interview would have made her a front-page staple. The tabs hate whenever a woman expresses a need for equity in pay.  They would have dragged her as an avarice villain who forced her co-stars out of their jobs, rather than recognizing her as one of the longest-running daytime hosts (Regis hosted for 22 years, and Kelly has been there for 23) who deserves some respect.
