Emmys 2019: Fans of The Big Bang Theory slam 'tiny' 30-second tribute, but others wonder if 'people still watch that show'
With fans on Twitter buzzing with tears, claps, cheers, and criticism alike for the show's tiny little Emmys tribute, the sarcasm and snark were at an all-time high.
After it ended in its twelfth season and the Emmys honored the show's departure with a tiny 30-second montage where they played the last episode, aka the scene where Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) finds out that he finally won the Nobel prize. Shockingly enough, while fans are divided about the little time spent in showcasing the show's popularity, certain viewers are shocked that people still watched that show.
With fans on Twitter buzzing with tears, claps, cheers, and criticism alike for the show's tiny Emmys tribute, the sarcasm and snark were at an all-time high, with certain viewers expressing their active hatred for the Chuck Lorre show. Twitter user @NicoleEldredgee wrote: "I couldn’t give a fuck even if I tried that the Big Bang Theory is ending, good riddance see ya never." User @cspotweet also expressed a similar sarcasm, writing: "If you *actually* miss 'The Big Bang Theory', know that we're only two years away from the inevitable reboot. #Emmys #Emmy2019."
Toning up on the snark and copious amounts of humor for the praise and love people still have for the show, user @danchiku wrote: "I’m screaming the emmys just did an in memoriam but for tv shows. Like the Big Bang theory was a sentient being that suffered and passed away." User @HannitaryNapkin's sentiments were quite similar as they couldn't believe that the Emmys would pay tribute to the show, writing: "Am i really seeing a sad black and white goodbye montage to the big bang theory on the emmys or have i finally snapped."
But nobody is as enraged about the tribute as Twitter user @wonderboymusic, because their rant on Twitter went something like this: "The Big Bang Theory was a scourge on our collective history, a lowest common denominator piece of unfunny non-art - what an absolutely astounding misplacement of reverence."
But overall, the fan reaction in unison just says the same: People still watched this show? But for those that did, and ardently so, they can't believe that the cast wasn't called on the stage like 'Game of Thrones' was.
