Jeremy Irons Loves Swag; We Love Jeremy Irons

Minus any Ellen Burstyn controversy to ask every winner and presenter in the General Press Room -- "Megan, do you think an actress should win an Emmy for a 14-second performance on a TV movie?", "Blythe, how outraged were you that an actress won an Emmy for a 14-second performance and do you think it cheapens the Emmy trophy" -- The Reporters Who Cover Television have been forced to find another Question They Can Beat to Death. And they've settled on the question of Trophy Show Presenter Swag -- To Tax or Not To Tax?

Jeremy Irons -- yummy Jeremy Irons -- was asked about the Swag Bag Brouhaha backstage after winning an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie. But, unlike everyone else who's been asked so far, and responded with the obligatorily PC "of course we must give them to charity -- Huzzah!" answer, Irons responded: "When I did the Oscars, I did go home with a very very large suitcase. ... We shouldn't pay tax on anything, but if we have to pay tax on presents -- they'll only spend it on bombs, for chrissake!!"

We love Jeremy Irons.
