Sofia Vergara's Emmy Spin: Objectification Or Comedy?

There was some controversy regarding Sofia Vergara’s revolving pedestal display from the Emmy Awards. Access Hollywood Live’s “Plugged In” panelists Bryan Safi and Dr. Jenn Berman weigh in on Sofia’s spin. Did they agree with the claims of objectification or was it all a big joke?

Television has and will always be about great story telling. Well there is some controversy following the Emmy after Sophia Vergara played up her curve on revolving pedestal during the president of the academy speech. The gag brought out criticism on social media calling it sexist and demeaning to women. Our panel Brian and Dr. Jen here to discuss what about it. First what Sophia had to say in the press room following modern family big win she addressed it. Some people thought it was sexist. Demeaning of the woman. Sexist. I think it's absolutely the opposite. It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself and enjoy and work and make money. So I absolutely think it's ridiculous and it's somebody who started this who I who she was. Have no sense of humor and lighten up a little bit. Oh, Who is she talking about? I know who started this she said I know who started this. Who? I think she's talking about I think she is talking about feminist like a code for the kind of woman who would start something like this. Is my version. People like me. Exactly. Did you. It actually did. I just feel like unfortunately historically Hollywood women have been object Ty tied way too much already and I get it was a gag and didn't mean it to be serious but unfortunately it plays on the truth of Hollywood history with women being an object. Honestly I you could by the TV when it was happening I wasn't like glued the whole time and I honestly was like are they selling her? Like is she up for auction right now. 500. I like didn't it was such a strange thing to see. She got up there and very subtle and did a little to me. It was a woman being shown, It was a woman being shown, her tush her boob her dress all about the look and to me when she says oh, a woman can be she says oh, a woman can be hot. Yes absolutely she can. Standing being turned on a podium to me not that funny. I think it would have been funnier if it would have been her idea. It was weird how he placed her up there. It was like stand up there and turn around. New it was coming. Not like it happened in the moment. It would have been funnier if the bit had been like he started talking and she had gotten up there and started doing that. It came across like. My father always says whenever you tell a joke to group of people if it's like my wife did this. Always reverse it and make the husband get the if problem. If she was mugging behind him that would have played better and sexual this sort of think of her standing up and turning had been her idea I think people. I agree. Subtle defense but kind of the difference between an object and saying like I feel sexy and I'm going to distract you and have fun with it. Wait a minute. There is an element here. Nowless night,element here. Nowless night, women also do Joe Manganiello all the time and last night there was a new comer. Kerry Joe. Is that the French. The director 37 years old director of true detective on HBO which is he won for directing. Boy is he really intelligent. The quality of the film making is unbelthe film making is unbelievable. Stuff we haven't seen before. And what happens to him? He's jaws piece of meat. No he had the hair in two French braids I couldn't get over it. Rocking the French braid. Did you think he was hot. First I couldn't get over. He has the braid we need a side picture and then I did think he was very attractive. Difference between the hair style that is sort of out of the norm and putting him on a podium and showing his tush to the audience what about Sophia comments talking about it. I love we discussed it a little I loved she culled herself hot funny and rich. She's I'm hot funny and rich she's right. I'll do what I want. You are right. World has been handed to you. I don't think they had to ask her twice. What will happen you will spin around look at the amazing butt. Totally I'm in. Yes. No coerce Yes. No coercing. Funny with Brian doing that trying to be sexy maybe. It was just sort of like well you are sexy and this is weird. Poor Bruce. Nobody ever listening to a word he says. At least they know -- Still no one listened to a word he said. Even more.so make a good point doctor. People are
