Spicey took to the Emmys stage! And it was weird and kinda awesome.

What It Says On the Tin

There is really nothing I can say about how Richard Simmons—who, in addition to being a pop culture fitness icon, co-starred in one of the best Whose Line Is it Anyway? sketches ever, just FYI—took to Twitter during the Emmys to post pictures of himself cosplaying as characters from Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, and Behind the Candelabra.

Not all that glitters is gold

Ah, the Emmys. It can be a weird thing for fans of genre TV, since sci-fi/fantasy shows rarely get nominated, and when they do, they rarely win.
