themuse.jezebel.comThe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Was the Easy Choice for an Emmys SweepAt Monday night’s 70th Annual Emmy Awards, diversity was a punchline. After an involved opening skit and musical number that referenced the diversity of the nominees, Regina King won best actress in the limited series category, ending a streak of white people winning, albeit briefly. Critical darlings like Atlanta were passed over for the big awards in the comedy series category, trounced by Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel—a fluffy bit of 1950s New York pap about an Upper West Side housewife who channels her righteous anger into a stand-up comedy career, after her husband leaves her.

The comic’s depressingly on-brand effort to show off new material to an audience that didn’t know it was coming restarted public discussion about “how long” men like CK—who admitted to exposing himself to women and pressuring them into watching him masturbate late last year, after a New York Times piece brought years worth of allegations against him fully into the light—should be kept out of public platforms.
