Notable from the Emmys

We sorta hate-watched the Emmys this year - we hadn't seen very many of the shows nominated, so the awards didn't mean very much to us really. 
I was disappointed that much of the time, the celebrities presenting the awards seemed to think the show was about them - while the poor nominees were sitting there on tenterhooks, with their pasted-on smiles, the presenters were preening and goofing around, forgetting their job was to read out the winner and get off the stage. 
And the clips from the nominees flew past so fast it was hard to keep track of who was being nominated for what. 
All in all, it was an odd way to direct an awards show, really -- the Hollywood Reporter review agreed. 
But we did love these two highlights: The Dropout was a pretty good series - remarkable acting job by Amanda Seyfried, too. I wish Better Call Saul had won a few awards;  though I'm glad that Squid Game did, because it was a game-changer. 
And finally -- hey, thanks, Obama! From Gurdeep: And some very happy Ukrainians: Chef Andres deserves a Nobel - where ever people need food, there he is:
