'House of Cards' Star

'Nobody Cares' About the Emmys

9/23/2013 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

092313_corey_stoll_launch
Corey Stoll from "House of Cards" deserves a trophy for saying what most of Hollywood probably thinks, but is too afraid to say -- Emmys are nothing more than giant paper weights.

Corey was brutally honest -- outside an Emmy party last night -- when we asked if he was pissed he didn't even get a nomination for his role as coke and hooker loving Congressman Peter Russo.

His reply ... "Oh, no. Nobody cares about that stuff."

Spoiler alert: Corey also talks a little about his character's fate on the Netflix show.

So, if Corey's telling the truth about the Emmys -- gotta respect his honesty.

Still, we gotta ask ...

I believe everyone cares about being recognized for their hard work. But, most of us understand that politics are many times the deciding factor which in unfair.

Celebs get paid enough money to support small cities, are pampered and their jobs are playing make-believe. Why would anyone care about libs giving libs awards for that? Who else gets golden awards for doing their job that they are already overpaid for?

NO one on my twitter feed or fb timeline was talking about the emmy's last night. Everyone was going crazy over Breaking Bad however. No, real people in the real world don't care about most of those awards shows. They seem to be a bit narcissistic, all about them and for them and by them and let the little people watch us. Um, no thanks.

Of course its sour grapes. Nobody cares when they lose but when they win they shove it in your face, tell everyone its an honor and brag about how hard they worked to win it.

That's not what he said at all. He meant HE didn't care about not being nominated.

The Emmys are further proof TV is DEAD... they better start to edit their own "In Memoriam" self-tribute video

No other industry self congratulates themselves more than show biz people. He would care if he had won an award. He's right that most of us out of show biz don't care. It's all subjective.

TMZ! Please do your ****ing research before news. If you would had watch House of Cards, you would already know that this guys character died last season. You guys suck on providing your readers with current updated news.

Yet again a case where TMZ's story and headline tell you one thing, but the video tells you something completely different.

There are enough awards out there that everybody gets SOMETHING for their work. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air never won an Emmy, but it won an ASCAP Award- I have no idea what that means, nor do I care.
