Jane Lynch Emmys

Earlier in February I wrote an article titled, “The Worst Academy Awards Show in History.”  And as much as I like James Franco and Anne Hathaway, the bad review for the show was well deserved.  It was terrible.  Since then, there have been various awards shows that have been some of the best in a […]
