This is not anti-Nicole Kidman but more of a spotlight on the ones in control of the Emmys. The ones who softly played off others, allowed Nicole to speak on to her liking with no orchestra to play her off, but then cut a historic moment and equally important speech with blaring music and a mic cut. Luckily, however, Sterling was able to finish his speech backstage [x].
Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one
not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I
wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story
about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that
will live forever.
Shailene Woodley, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, and Zoe Kravitz speak onstage during the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 17, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.
