"The Emmy acceptance speech is the first time you get to show the world who you really are," one of the "students" in the short says. "Well, not who you really are, but the character that JA,N says you should be. And I like that, because I don't like me very much. "

She also prepares nominees to lose, recommending a "nodding strategy as the winners names are being announced, so when you lose you don't have egg on your face."
