Well, this may be a first: An awards show review with no real complaints. That’s how I feel about ABC’s presentation last night of the Emmy Awards. It was a compact, fast-moving show that actually came in on time. Jimmy Kimmel was a dashing and consistently engaging host, unafraid to make as much fun of himself as of any celebrities in the audience (especially poor “Celebrity Apprentice” executive producer Mark Burnett, identified by Kimmel as the man responsible for thrusting Donald Trump into the national spotlight … which isn’t accurate, by the way – Trump was already there when “The Apprentice” was transformed into something different -- but Kimmel was funny and Burnett was a good sport about it). And there was no real cause for umbrage over any of the winners.
