Adore Lily Tomlin but she was presenting best actress award at the Tonys one year and instead of just saying MADELINE KAHN she said TO THE PERSON WHO GOT ME MY FIRST JOB IN NY BECAUSE SHE TOLD THE MANAGER OF blah blah blah..... MADELINE KAHN!!!! Cringe. It wasn’t about Lily and it was rude to the other nominees. Ben Vereen did something similar at the Tonys when he said TO THE FIRST PERSON WHO REACHED OUT TO ME WHEN I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL RECOVERING FROM MY ACCIDENT.....CHITA RIVERA!!!! Eek.

It used to be on Youtube and it was awful, total cringe. She did a 1940s-style musical number with dancers on one of the Emmys in the 80s.

At the beginning of the speech, she blurted out "I can't believe you just ripped my dress!". A lot of people thought she was being a cunt, but it just seemed to me that she was speaking her immediate feelings without any forethought. It was awkward, to say the least. Even worse, they misspelled her name as "Chloï Sevigny" on the bottom reader banner.

I dunno, it was just very yucky and too melodramatic, even for the Oscars. Even knowing what truly little I know of the real Hollywood, and yet how cynical I feel about it.
