The Daytime Emmys' red-carpet hosts stir up controversy with a rape joke

This year, some real-life drama surrounds the soap-focused Daytime Emmy Awards.

A few weeks before the ceremony, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences issued a casting call for social media mavens to host the event’s live-streamed red carpet preshow. Specifically, as reported by Soap Opera Network, organizers wanted “millennials between the ages of 18-35, all ethnicities, who have a strong entertainment news background and/or very strong social media following (300,000 followers minimum).” Last Wednesday, the NATAS revealed that it had selected a foursome with a mighty social reach: Vine star Brittany Furlan, style vlogger Lauren Elizabeth, beauty vlogger Jessica Harlow, and Meghan Rosette, who vlogs about style and beauty.

The chosen four certainly have large followings on sites like YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Vine, and Facebook—but their collective entertainment-news backgrounds aren’t quite as strong. After a red carpet show criticized as amateurish and occasionally downright offensive, some irate viewers are demanding that NATAS issue an apology for Furlan, Elizabeth, Harlow, and Rosette’s antics.

Kathy Griffin named host of 2014 Daytime Emmys

Maybe it’s a good thing the 41st Annual Daytime Emmys won’t be broadcast on television this year — just-named host Kathy Griffin might have a little more leeway in what she can get away with during her monologue.

An Emmy winner herself, the comedian was named emcee of the 2014 gala on Friday. The event will stream online live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 22.

“I am beyond thrilled to be hosting what I’m told is the most important television event of the year. Knowing that over 100 million people from every corner of the planet will be watching, I will try to keep my nerves at bay and deliver a great show,” Griffin said in a statement. “I can only hope that at the end of the evening, critics and fans alike will compare it to the experience they once had watching Neil Armstrong take man’s first step on the moon. My only regret is knowing that this epic evening will distract millions of viewers from enjoying this year’s World Cup. I apologize to FIFA.” READ FULL STORY
