    Mr. 0’Neil did a marvelous article aboyut this a few yrs ago  It was that the Emmy headquarters had the…..to install a lifesize statue of Jackie (Ralph Kramden) Gleason (l9l6-l987) directly in front of it’s building yet never even voted Jackie a special Emmy award???

    *Art (Ed Norton) won about 3 in a row, Audrey *(Alice ) Meadows won one year. but typically for s,. actress?  NADA for my fellow Irishman though? Phil; Silvers in Sgt. Bilko used to defeat him, but what about an honorary statuette at least & now due to the PC crowd of nonsense & Bill Maher is heading this one, there’s yet another movement to tear his lifesize statue down located for many yrs in frt of the NYC Bus Terminal??? Sating he was just to mean verbally to Alice. & notice there are never repeats of The Honeymooners: Classic 39 (1955-56) (CBS) or The Lost Episode’s (l952) yet if things are so darn offensive why is All in the Family on all the time in old repeats? & even the Oscars pretty much turned a cold shoulder to him, as al;l know he did earn 1 s. actor nod for the superb 1961 The Hustler, but deserved a 2nd in his grand finale from 1986 with *Tom Hanks Nothing in Common ($16m) (***1/2-out of 4) Jackie immeduiately thought he’d outright win the Best actor Oscar for ’63’s Papa’s Delicate Condition (***) but wasn’t even nommed, the song won though from it.  HERE’S TO THE REAL MR. TELEVISIO & NOT THE OVERRATED & OBNOXIOUS, EGOMANIACAL MILTON BERLE!!!

    THANK YOU & PLEASE COMMENT EUITHER WAY

     

    (P.S. For yrs now despite my hitting the notify me of follow up e mails, I get absolutely nothing, please help)

    Almost forgot, given he’s my #3rd all-time idol, hero,etc he had to have his own & e always admired Jack 0akie-(l903-78) & Oliver Hardy (l892=-l957)  matter of fact you see a lot of Ollie as Ralph Kramden

    Also & strangely given they were the finest comedic team I’ve ever seen, even over theatrical teams He & fellow Irish *Art Carney-(l9l8-2003) didn’t really hang out together?   Both were alcoholic-(*Carney loved scotch) but as most know Gleason drank a ton more, so much so if he couldn’t get to sleep after boozing all day and night, he’d have to call his doctor to give him a  shot. Larry King-(l933-) & others still talk about visiting him & he’d drink along with them, then they knew he was gonna get worse & left earlier & all that really knew him said he changed after then U.S. President Richard Nixon around 1971 took him to area 51, he was fascinated with UFO’s even having his house built to shape like one.  (P.S. Hope I finally get a notification, first used GD around 2001, then had to reregister & all???  Poor Joyce (Trixie)  Randolph sole one still living in that bldg. at age 94)

    THANX
