I present to you the evidence of why celebrities hate doing press.
Seriously... the networks need to cancel all this pre-show Emmy/Oscar garbage, or at least find someone who has a brain AND can hold a microphone.
First, did anyone catch the idiot woman for NBC asking Annette Bening whether she'd like an Emmy to go with her Oscar? Yeah, um... Annette doesn't have an Oscar, you nightmarish toad. She has lost three times though, so, um... close. She's "been happy to be nominated" twice to Hilary Swank and once to freaking Whoopi Goldberg, so I'm sure she's all really cool about it, and definitely willing to answer awkward awful questions on live TV and all. Just for that encounter, here's hoping she wins for Running With Scissors.
Although Helen Mirren might have something to say about that. Good lord... that movie just screams Best Actress.
But the even better showdown, was Jeremy Piven handing Billy Bush his lunch. This idiot (apparently, the smart Bush) first asks him if he's seen Violet Garner (Ben and Jennifer's baby) recently. When Piven says no, Bush then asks him whether he's seen Shiloh (Brad and Angelina's baby). Piven gives him a big generous clue and says that he has had "116 other things to do... I don't go hunting for celebrity babies, thank you, Billy."
Incredulously, this idiot then asked him whether he's seen (wait for it) Suri Cruise. I shit you not. I can't believe Piven didn't just deck him on live TV. Instead he went with, "You need another job. You have potential as a human being. This may not be right for you. Seriously -- can you focus on other things?"
And my love for Jeremy Piven continues to grow...
