Grammys panned for sloppy camerawork and awkward transitions from safe to riskier material
The 2018 Grammys struggled being back at Madison Square Garden after 15 years away, and the entire broadcast was so off that the person who got the most screentime other than host James Corden was Sting, “who kept turning up over and over again, any time the show needed to stuff the ‘this is getting a little too dangerous’ genie back into the bottle,” according to Vox’s Caroline Framke and Todd VanDerWerff. They add: “In particular, the show’s choice to essentially silo all political messaging into one 20-minute section in the middle of the production felt like a network note, as if CBS itself had descended to say, ‘Let’s not scare off Trump voters with a bunch of business about immigration and men’s sexual misconduct.’ Indeed, the awkward, whiplash-inducing transitions from relatively safe material to riskier material felt very CBS — since the network is, after all, America’s most staid broadcaster.”
- A tone-deaf, out-of-touch mess: Unhip CBS gave U2 — which wasn’t nominated for a Grammy — the most airtime of any musical act
- There were a few compelling moments, but a mix of boredom and botching defined the ceremony
- Sting isn’t relevant to this moment and time — so why give him so much airtime?
- James Corden’s "Subway Karaoke" spectacularly backfires
- Chuck Berry was iconic and hugely influential, yet the Grammys barely devoted any attention to the rock 'n' roll pioneer
- The Highs and Lows: Las Vegas Shooting tribute was a high, CBS censoring Logic’s “sh*thole” was a low
- Why was Lorde snubbed? Organizers address why the only woman nominated for album of the year didn’t perform solo
- Kesha’s transcendent performance in support of #MeToo will be remembered for years
- Grammy producers reached out to Hillary Clinton to appear in Fire and Fury skit
- U.N. Ambassador Nikki Hailey: Fire and Fury skit ruined the Grammys
- After scoring a Grammy, Donald Glover finds it “scary” he only needs a Tony and an Oscar to earn an EGOT

Election night 2016: Has any other event been so quickly and repeatedly mirrored on TV?
It's been exactly one year since Donald Trump’s unexpected presidential victory, yet television keeps trying to relive the night of Nov. 8, 2016, most recently on American Horror Story: Cult and Broad City. “While Obama’s 2008 election was historic, the shock of Trump’s upset victory makes it especially evocative fodder for our left-leaning pop culture,” says Rachel Withers. “There seems to have been an immediate need to memorialize it, even as its consequences are still playing out. And these depictions are still rolling in—while South Park and Saturday Night Live were able to recreate the moment almost immediately, shows with longer production timelines are only now getting around to it. But why are we even still interested in reliving the election?”
