I guess I'm joining Kelly in her live(ish) blog of the Emmy Awards. This is going to be a really random and long stream of consciousness post.
Jeremy Piven? Blech.
I wanted Neil Patrick Harris or Rainn Wilson to win. 😦
Thomas Haden Church – Tip to the music people – Don't start playing the music when someone is tearfully dedicating an award to their father. Cut out some of the stupid jokes later in the show. What asswipes.
Yay Ellen! She should be hosting. 🙂
Was going for Oh or Wilson, but Heigl's OK. Liked her in Knocked Up, don't like Izzy as a character. Again, what's up with the music?
Kind of surprised about Conan winning, but I love him. I was thinking it would be The Colbert Report.
Christina Aguilera showing why winning the pop starlet war does have something to do with vocal ability.
Gotta love Robert Duvall.
I love The Daily Show so I was really happy about them winning. Tony Bennett's a cool guy too so kudos to him.
I don't like that half the audience is just sitting there looking at everyone's butts while they present and accept awards.
OK, I'll say it – I don't like The Sopranos. I'll be glad when they're no longer in the running for these awards shows (or the musical numbers). The Jersey Boys are enjoyable though, but I like cheesy music.
Lewis Black – HAHAHAHAHAHA, funny! Ryan Seacrest, not funny.
The Office won something! Writing for the Gay Witch-hunt episode.
Rainn Wilson rapping the Kanye West song was funny, but this skit could have been funnier. I don't watch any of those reality shows so don't care that Amazing Race won.
The commercial for the Knocked Up DVD is more interesting than the award show (and this blog post). I'm buying that on the release date.
Lead Actor in a Comedy – that's a hard one because they are all hilarious. Ricky Gervais. I liked the giving it to Steve Correll bit. 🙂
Sigh, Hugh Laurie. Oh yeah, Lead Actress – Sally Field. She's the bomb. I need to watch the rest of the first season of Brothers and Sisters. I lost touch with that one, but it is really good. Hehe, "If mothers ruled the world, there would be no G*******" (cameras panned away). I think she was saying G** Damn War. Go Sally!
My pick for lead actress in a comedy was Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but I knew she wouldn't win. I don't watch Ugly Betty. I don't think it's that funny.
Hugh Laurie, Hugh Laurie, Hugh Laurie, Hugh Laurie, please Hugh Laurie. Argh! James Spader. Oh well, at least it wasn't James Gandolfini.
So, Drama Series. Who will it be? I'm guessing (but not cheering for) The Sopranos. I want House, but we'll see…
And the winner is…
Oh yeah, I forgot about Outstanding Comedy Series – 30 Rock is pretty good. It was my third favorite of the bunch.
Whoa, HUGE shocker, The Sopranos won! OMFG, I'm so excited… NOT!
