A Star Is Born, or B Was on TV

The four-part miniseries When We Rise, which was partially inspired by activist Cleve Jones' book of the same name, aired in a primetime slot on ABC over the course of four nights last week and because life stuff prevented us from watching it in real-time, B, Sid and I spent most of today catching the last few episodes on Hulu. The series stars a bunch of well-known actors like David Hyde Pierce, Mary-Louise Parker, Rob Reiner, Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg so we were used to seeing familiar faces on our TV throughout the show, but we got a special treat a short time into the final episode when B's mug made an appearance during a vote of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Even though we all knew it was coming (B filmed the scene during one long night back in May and a bunch of people reached out to him last night to say they saw him), Sid and I still went nuts and made B a little bit bashful when we hit pause and forced him to stand next to the on-camera version of himself so we could snap pics.

Is there an Emmy Award for Best One-Second Cameo by a Public Official Playing Himself because, I must say, Bevan Dufty killed it as Bevan Dufty.
