Helaine is watching the Daytime Emmys (while recording Miss USA). I’m trying to avoid getting caught up in it but obviously not doing a good job. Gladys Knight was brought on stage to lead a long segment honoring Oprah and 25 years of her talk show.
Let’s face it, Oprah has had more daytime success than anyone. Nothing is more appropriate than her getting an award. But where the hell was she?
Oprah was a no show for a multipart tribute to Oprah!
I hope it wasn’t meant this way, but this certainly came off as a diss to the Academy.
