Rachel Bloom is rejecting awards shows with a hilarious award show-centred song.
In high anticipation for the upcoming Emmy Awards nominations on July 13, the Golden Globe-winner, best known for her starring role in the musical-comedy series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, satirizes the whole idea of stars campaigning for their awards in a three-minute musical number.
“I don’t care about award shows,” a partly joking Bloom sings. “They have nothing to do with art. I don’t need to beg for some acclaim to desperately build my fame. I write and sing and act to be apart of a community of people who value integrity.”
Walking the stage in a ball gown in the video, the actress and writer adds that she would rather not answer “a heck of a lot red carpet questions about who’s the most fun to kiss,” adding, “The answer’s Ryan.”
After seeing two successful seasons of her show, Bloom will return to star in a third season, renewed to air this fall. Bloom spoke with ET Canada alongside her co-creator, Aline Brosh McKenna, at the Gracie Awards, where she laid out her expectations for the Emmy Awards.
