All I Have to say about The Emmys are "LOL" and "WTF?" Seriously, what are those emmy voters smoking? I can completely understand The Office cause that's funny but it's funny because of Steve Carell (well, about 70% Carell) yet Carell loses the Best Actor in a Comedy award to... TONY SHALHOUB?!?! Holy crap. That schtick got old a years ago. I coulda sworn that show had been axed, anyway!
Then there is 24. I think it's just my hatred for that show (sorry, but Jack Bauer officially stopped being interesting at the end of season 2. How many times can one man save the fucking world?!). Keifer Sutherland winning Best Actor? I would've been happy with this result five bloody years ago! God. Are the Emmy voters in some weird parallel universe? That would explain the absolutely ridiculously absurd nominations (seriously! four of the Best Actress in a Comedy nominees are from cancelled tv shows. Making the Desperate Housewives snub in that category even more bizarre. Three of the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy nominees were also from cancelled shows). And seriously, Francis Conroy deserved that Best Actress in a Drama statue for the last five years. Shame on your Emmy voters. You're tasteless gits.
Oh, and seriously? BARRY MANILOW?!
Some positives though. Was definitely glad to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus take out the Comedy Actress category. I love her so much, even though her speech was really weird to watch. Kelly Macdonald winning was a surprising turn, but delightful nonetheless. Umm... yeah, that's about it. And The Office, but I already mentioned that. Oh, I forgot the actual major highlight! Seeing the entire Ellen Burstyn performance in her nomination clip. COMEDY GOLD, PEOPLE!
As for the actual show itself, it was at times really good and at times annoying. The red carpet special was truly abyssmal. Seriously. They will have their fashion commentators being all "Now we have Mariska Margitay in a stunning dress" yet they will ONLY SHOW A CLOSEUP OF HER FACE!!!!!! aagh. Like, I don't give a flying fuck about who they're wearing, how comfortable it is, how hot it is, how long it took them to get ready I JUST WANT TO SEE PRETTY (ornotsoprettyomg) DRESSES!!! Seriously, is that too much to ask of a red carpet special? And who the fuck is Billy Bush? He's a tiny tiny man. And they should only get homosexual men to cover these events because the hetero dudes sound ridiculous. It's as if they're trying to make it sounds as if they're not only doing it for the cash and to look at prime Hollywood chests (and that includes Simon Cowell's! omg that's grotesque. They're called BUTTONS Simon. They're attached to a shirt for a reason). And seriously, that woman who didn't realise that Annette Bening has been screwed over for Oscar's three times and that her comments were ridiculous unresearched and insulting. And then when Annette tried to correct her she was blissfully unaware. Dumb retched idiot.
Conan O'Brian was good. His bizarre musical sequence at the start was really fun. He always looks so gangly so the whole Music Man thing looked good. The most annoying thing about the presenters were that, like, 75% of them all made jokes about how they weren't gonna make jokes. Yet, they're weren't funny! So... they should've just NOT made ANY jokes about making jokes and left it at that.
So, yeah... whatever. Check out the link below for more Emmy fun! No, seriously!
