2014 Primetime Emmy Awards

Emmy-Awards-key-artThe 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards were last night and there weren't  a whole lot of surprises with the winners.  Allison Janney got a double  dose of Emmy love for her work on Showtime's Master of Sex and her new TV series Mom.  Weird Al had a VERY weird musical take on the nominated show songs, which left me with the puppy hearing a weird noise face.  A highlight was a moving, but fitting tribute to the late Robin Williams by his good friend Billy Crystal.  But the tee-hee moment of the evening goes to Jimmy Kimmel who clowned True Detective nominee about "being greedy" by having an Emmy nomination five months after winning the Oscar.  Pure comedy!!!  In my opinion, he should've hosted...just saying...  Here is a complete list of all the winners and a clip from Billy Crystal's tribute to Robin Williams [youtube=http://youtu.be/jUHV703ZRys?t=37s]

Carla Renata

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of UBNRAdio.com, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
