CNN reporter Omar Jimenez was just nominated for an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Emerging Journalist.” Even if you don’t watch CNN, you know him. He was the reporter in the famous meme from the 2020 riots, the one standing in front of burning buildings and assuring us that the protests are “fiery but mostly peaceful.”

I can’t help feeling that the Emmy Award people have made a mistake. Are they sure they didn’t mean to nominate him for Best Comedy Performance?
