Emmys Co-host Colin Jost Not A Fan Of Awards Shows

Some folks on Twitter didn’t take too kindly to that.
It was even tied into the recent controversy over the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently announcing it would be adding a “popular film” category to its lineup of Academy Awards nominations.
Academy adds ‘popular film’ category to Oscars
“The problem with Colin Jost’s comments & the Most Popular Movie Oscar & the overall ‘no one cares about awards’ dismissiveness is the false equivalence between popularity and quality,” one person tweeted. “Many good movies are also popular, but popularity in and of itself is not worthy of celebration.”
Others didn’t think it was such a big deal.
“Is colin jost actually in trouble for backing movies like gladiator winning an Oscar and award shows taking themselves too seriously or am I missing the part where he said the n word or something,” one person tweeted.
