Acceptance Speech Tips for Emmy Winners, by Parker Posey Dicey advice from crazy acting coach

If only the Emmy winners this Sunday night would take a cue from Parker Posey, who plays a ridiculously affected and over-the-top acting coach in this parody video about how to accept an award. Man, that would be three hours worth watching. Otherwise … meh.

Among her suggestions: Thank people in a language you don't normally speak! Ugly cry! Take your clothes off! Fake a heart attack!
