The weirdest running thread of the Emmys was the series of green-room cutaways to Criminal Minds actor/former Soul Train host Shemar Moore. When the camera turned on him, it could go real right or real wrong, as they say on Basketball Wives. Sometimes he stumbled over the cue cards, seemingly unable to catch up with himself. Sometimes he repeated himself, seemingly riffing. Sometimes there were awkward silences. Sometimes, he read straight through with the contrived naturalness of the TV presenter he is apparently aspiring to be. What's up with that?
