The Emmy papers

In 1984, some of those at the Emmy Awards found themselves in the embarrassing position of knowing who the winners were ahead of time.

The New York Post had obtained a list of winners and printed their names in a late edition.

At the ceremony, Bob Gentry of “All My Children,” who’d seen the report, sat with Erika Slezak and Susan Lucci, both competing for best actress. Said Gentry: “I couldn’t look either of them in the eye.” Slezak won. Lucci did not storm out as she had the previous year.
