The 2010 Emmy Awards are history, and—whether you watched live or not—these are the moments you'll want to remember. From the opener, to the Conan jokes, to the most awkward parts—and more!—video of the best/worst moments is inside.
John Lundberg reviews celebrity poetry for the Huffington Post today, covering the oeuvres of such notables as Suzanne Somers, Leonard Nimoy, and Charlie Sheen. He makes the "well, duh" assessment that songwriters often fare the best, citing Wilco's Jeff Tweedy as an example. In doing so he manages to forget the estimable Jewel, whose poems are described, on the back of her 1998 book A Night Without Armor (get it??), as "A talented artist's intimate portrait of what makes us uniquely human." Right. The bulk of her work consists of a few hackneyed sentences which she chopped up by hitting the "return" button at random, turning them into twee bits of verse. The singer, who hilariously got served by MTV's Kurt Loder over a malapropism while promoting the book, shares some deep thoughts with us after the jump.
