Actor JJeremy Piven has blamed his ill-received acceptance speech at last month’s 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on the event’s reality TV star hosts.
Piven picked up a third successive gong for his role in US TV hit Entourage at the ceremony, where he took the stage to thank his co-stars.
The star took aim at the hosts, including American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest, Project Runway’s Heidi Klum, slamming their lacklustre opening sequence after his own speech dried up.
And the actor cites the hosts’ poor opener as the reason the audience were difficult to entertain.
He said: “I thought we were being Punked, but indeed that was the act – that they didn’t have anything… I was confused. I bombed. It felt and looked like the life had been taken out of the audience… there was not a courtesy giggle to be found.”
