Which Neil Patrick Harris-Snubbed Network Was the Victim of a Possible Emmy Conspiracy?
Last week, we explored a Kanye West conspiracy theory regarding the rapper's now-historic "Imma Let You Finish" VMA stunt and today it seems there is another award show curiosity to entertain. During last night's opening segment of the Emmys, Neil Patrick Harris sang about a series of television networks during his opening "Put Down The Remote" number, but one channel was mysteriously missing.
After mentioning a few stars in the audience like Tina Fey and Jon Hamm, the Emmys' polarizing host listed nearly every network represented at the ceremony and not: "A&E, ABC, Starz and Biography, BET, Fox and Discovery, IFC, Spike TV, C-Span and TNT, CBS, PBS, AMC, History and QVC, CBS, PBS, CNN, Showtime and Oxygen," in a breath- defying exhibit of showmanship and memorization that left out the night's 99-times nominee: HBO.
In case anyone thought that the host may have just forgotten to insert the night's most-nominated network, a visual display behind Harris proved that in the midst of finding ways to squeeze in mentions of QVC, Oxygen and PBS, producers failed to script in HBO.
