The Daytime Emmy Awards will no longer accept nominations for “The View” or any of its hosts. The decision came after Emmy Awards International LLC moved to make its program more inclusive of right-leaning shows such as Fox News’ “The Five,” which has never received the nod.
“We want people to understand that we can’t keep putting these women on a pedestal when they’re really just horrible,” said company CEO Joe Barron, “Whoopi is toxic. What if she’s about to win an award and she says something pro-Hitler again? What will they do? Laugh all the way to the bank in Alyssa Milano’s Volkswagon, that’s what.”
Barron’s concerns aren’t without merit. The Golden Globes refused to allow nominations for Will Smith or his movie about black people and slavery, and the Oscar committee will surely do the same. The Daytime Emmys are just following award show protocol. “Our sister company, Emmy Awards of America Inc will allow nominations on a case-by-case basis, but we can’t allow any at all.”
Goldberg’s spokesman, Art Tubolls, told a source that the show plans to file a lawsuit against the company for discrimination because of course they have to play that card. “She says that between her and Anna Navaro they have a good shot at something something affirmative action something.
Will Smith was unavailable for comment. The decision is final and there is no official appeals process. God bless the Daytime Emmys for the bold move, and God Bless America.
