Kevin Clash, the dirty perv that used to perform Elmo, has been nominated for a daytime Emmy. You'll recall that last year the legendary puppeteer quit Sesame Street after it came out that he had been fisting more than a red sock. He allegedly had sex with a couple of teenage boys. Not cool for a children's entertainer to be stepping into Eagle Scout Master turf. In spite of being a dirty boy fiddler, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences decided that he still deserved a nod for best children's entertainer. You see, the Academy is able to separate the man from the art. If there's any karma in this world, members of the Academy will someday be forced to separate Kevin Clash from their teenaged sons. They should just give the award posthumously to Shari Lewis. She never sodomized a child with Lamb Chop, far as we know.
