Jermaine Fowler is a talented comedian who was given a impossible task: announce an awards show with energy and humor without taking away from the host or the austerity of the night. The EMMYs are basically asking him to be a second host while not hosting. No one, literally no one, could have done this. So it really isn’t surprising that no one liked what he had going on.
The producers were trying to make the night fun, but it just ended up being distracting
I guess Joel liked him. OK, Joel. You do you, man.
In general, people cringed whenever he busted into a situation.
Maybe we should rethink the whole announcer thing for next year.
