IN THE EVENT, You missed the EMMY Award show last night, you are in luck as I am going to list many of the main categories with the names of the winners. 

In an effort to answer the question often posed to Producers, Actors, Directors, ... does the art in television and film imitate "life" or does "life" mirror all of the entertainment material that Hollywood may produce in a given year?

EMMY Statute (replica, not actual size)

As we are annually informed the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences somehow nominates and selects the categories and the nominees. After which comes the Vote which is monitored and tallied by a prestigious accounting firm. This year the task fell to the Congressional Budget Office.

Unlike Television Academy - One Newsmaker Decides ENEMY awards

In addition, a list of those newsmakers and global events that have somewhat the same look, feel or serious tone of the Emmy Nominees and Winners will be listed to the right of the actual Emmy winners. Please inform me if you can "see, feel or just 'get it!' These, my analogies that approximate the Art/Reality ratio."

Note: In writing Living On The Diagonal, I in no way, shape or form have made any attempt to offend an family whose loved ones have suffered under the insane actions of the ISL.

To the Readers: It would be most appreciated if you can locate the "comment" area at the bottom of the page and at least let the World-Wide Web know THE ACTIONS and BELIEFS of the ISL (ISIS) are totally UNACCEPTABLE to the Global Community. The Extreme Islamic Barbarian "views" are so contrary to any GOD, of any Religion in the world. Extreme Violence will not be tolerated and you risk certain death by your own sword.
