You know, holding your breath is rarely a good idea. It isn’t going to do anything for you. It won’t solve problems.
You can turn blue. Get a headache. Kill brain cells. Pass out. Crash a car. Hit your head.
Sounds like that would cause new problems.
Holding your breath, hoping for the best needed a solution. Today, digital control of the microphone on live broadcasts is much easier, just a brief delay…but I am sure that they are still sitting there hoping that no one drops a bomb, says something inappropriate, dragging it out, off script and being offensive. It’s a live award show, recognizing the entertainment industry and after all, we are just here to have a good time.
