Ouch: EW - Most Awkward Pairing


EW has a list of the Emmy best and worst moments and the presenter pair of David Boreanaz and Lauren Conrad is listed as "Most Awkward Pairing."

Ouch! What did you think?

I definitely thought it was stiff. My husband and I couldn't decide if it was simply all technical wording, something fun was cut, or DB was mad. I thought they might have David with a previous co-star, an actor/actress that plays a similar role on another show, or something that made sense. But a drama actor and...a reality TV star. Hmm...

He gets annoyed easily. It doesn’t matter who he is paired with, he's an actor...he should learn to act and smile even if he doesn't like who they've matched him with.

I thought it was awkward too, but then again IMO this was one of the most awkward and cringe-inducing Emmys ever, so they were in good company. ^_^

If I could thought-bubble David here: "Why - OH WHY - am I standing here with this chick and not Emily Deschanel? Was this supposed to be our consolation prize for being shafted for Emmys? Because it's not working for me..."

What happens with David Boreanaz, lately, since it does not appear alongside Emily Deschanel, it appears that their brains made a short circuit.

With the exception of Colbert - Stewart, and Griffin -Rickles (who between the four of them provided the only funny of the broadcast), everyone looked mismatched. And awkward. And not funny.

Now I don't feel so bad for missing the Emmy's if it was that awkward :)

Hannah said...

Awkward is right...It was painful to watch that's for sure. He looked so upset and then at that one part Lauren Conrad snapped at him for saying his line...By the way what is Lauren Conrad doing on the Emmy's anyways!?

I didn't see the Emmys, but I think I would be annoyed getting paired with Lauren Conrad too. I mean, David takes his job seriously... she's only famous for the sake of being famous. I only hope this doesn't keep him from being asked to present in the future.

I didn't think he looked mad, but he did look kinda tense...

I think it was a mix of the Emmy this year was not scripted well from the beginning (like the hosts were kinda painful to watch) and the fact he and Lauren Conrad had no chemistry whatsoever.

But I saw another segment of Kate Walsh and the other guy, and it was...kinda awkward too...

heirofloki said...

Jane, that's exactly who I thought of too. Kate Walsh usually comes across as a charming woman but last night she seemed downright robotic.

I didn't watch it but from the pic - he does look very uncomfortable. And his posture - like a statue!

Jane said...

Heirofloki, glad to know I wasn't the only one. I mean, yeah, she was smiling and all, but it looked really forced...And the other guy had the expression of "I have no idea what I'm doing..."

Milk Mama said...

Yeah. That's a strange pairing. If they had brains, they would've paired him with Emily or an ex-costar. Seriously. *rolls eyes* I blame it on the Emmy people who paired them. It wasn't our DB's fault. *pouts like a petulant child*

Yeah, he did look kinda tense, or kinda bored maybe? Not good pairing.
