Bill Maher Increases His Emmy Losing Streak

Sep 21, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Bill Maher was already Emmy’s “biggest loser,” and he extended the streak last night when his “Real Time,” which he helps produce, failed to win the variety series category, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Goldderby.com.

Maher now has gone 22 times without a win, dating back to 1995, when his “Politically Incorrect” was nominated for the variety, music or comedy series Primetime Emmy.

  1. To paraphrase Sally Field: They dislike him, they really dislike him!
    And what’s to like about a super-snarky wise-ass?

  2. Bill Maher deserves an Emmy for Real Time. There is a great deal to like about him. My favorite thing about Maher is that he isn’t afraid to say that religion (any religion, not just YOURS) is BS. He should get some kind of “Profile in Courage” award for that, if not an Emmy!

  3. Doug — I couldn’t have said it better myself. He’s such a blow hard. I have a “friend” who told me she gets her news from him. OMG! I couldn’t believe she actually said that out loud. It really made me rethink her intelligence level. He’s just a hater. Other haters love him. Just read Wanda’s comment as proof.

  4. Well, the conservative right has made Real Time a necessary evil. Who but a Bill Maher is taking an entire show to rip new A-holes into the fabric of pompocity and fear mongering the Hannity’s and Beck’s and Limbaugh’s are eschewing daily? And you have to admit, love him or hate him, new rules is a hoot of a segment!

  5. I THINK BILL MAHER IS A RIOT.. YOU HAVE TO LIKE HIS SENCE OF HUMOR AND BE OPENED MINDED ABOUT SOME OF HIS TOPICS.. BUT I FIND THAT I KEEP CABLE JUST TO WATCH HIS SHOW….LOVE NEW RULES… LOVE OPENING… YOU DONT ALWAYS HAVE TO AGREE TO BE ENTERTAINED.. A TRUE JERSEY GIRL……..
