  1. A shame that Emma’s win was shown in one of the many “shown earlier” packages throughout the telecast. No nominations were shown, and her acceptance speech was shown for very quickly…..

    1. Intersting. I watched on replay via Stan so we got these “shown earlier” moments you are talking about in full. That and the backstage moments added an extra hour to the telecast without ads.
