Hello all.Who is this weird dude on FOX doing the pre-show? And I ask this as a football fan and a tv watcher- why did they put the game and the awards so close together?
Guys, I was not sold until THE FNL BOYS SHOWED UP!! Landry Clarke! AND MY MATT SARACEN!! Ok, I will calm down now.
I liked the Mad Men part.
Wait the Glee club is real famous tv people.I am confused.
I hope Julie Bowen's Emmy is made of chocolate because she needs a snack. And a dickey for that dress wouldn't be a bad thing.
Roger Sterling watching tv on his phone.
I get it, she's really skinny, and we did not need to see all of the lines on her breastbone to prove it.
And she has three kids?
Ty Burrell made me cry.
She had two of them at the same time.
I just turned it on and Modern Family has already won two Emmys in two minutes. Should I just give up now?
I am loving the voice overs.
Its weird that I am watching the Emmy's/reading the New Yorker's article about Pakistan from last week, right? I mean it is weird and also totally explains why I am a fan of this blog/
I'm watching the Emmys, football and reading the Times. You're good.
This is a semi-painful broadcast so far.
I would not want to have been the person on the 7-second delay button during the Charlie Sheen speech.
I love Jane Lynch, but she seems nervous to me. I feel like I'm rooting for her to do well through the broadcast! Also, I love Amy Poehler.
I loved the ladies rush the stage and make it a beauty pageant moment. It just made me so happy!
She has serious biceps, too.
Best moment of the show so far for sure. And Mark Burnett deserves to be yelled at for allowing that Charlie Sheen business to happen.
I'm watching the Emmys and editing a casebook.
Oops, Guest was me.
Office skit was fine; love Dothraki humor.<span> </span>
I liked it more before the crown and roses came out, when it was still plausibly spontaneous.
Lonely Island skit hit with a thud. <span> </span>
Probably the worst they've ever done. They would have been better with a new song.
They needed to do a video.
Friday Night Lights and Margo Martindale wins have me screaming with joy.
So, I need to ask: Is Cobie Smulders still "attainable hot?"
Ha, no. She's pretty stunning. I don't think she's percieved to be more attainable for an everyman than scores of beautiful celebrities.
COACH! Jon Hamm needs an Emmy at some point but I'm just thrilled that Kyle Chandler won.
Starting to feel like an FNL series win is not outside the realm of possibility....
"A lot of people are very curious why I'm a lesbian. Ladies and gentlemen, the cast of Entourage!"
And hurrah for Peter Dinklage!
Damn, I love Downton Abbey! Happy they're getting awards!!
Apparently it was Poehler & Plimpton's idea. Loved it. What's up for debate I guess is were they the only 2 in on it: the presenters looked thrown off and I thought Falco was going to be a spoilsport and stay seated.
The one and only thing I asked of the Emmy gods today was to FINALLy give Jon Hamm his long-overdue award. But nooooo! Denied again! Damn you, Emmys!
A Lannister always wins his Emmy.(I stole that from a retweet that I can't find now. Sorry for the poor attribution.)
Half<span> </span>man! Halfman!
Yeah, I really enjoyed that. LOVED Melissa McCarthy's speech (though I"m pissed that Poehler didn't win). Martha Plimpton was rocking that dress!
I watched way late, so just a few things from the first hour:1. It's always nice when Jane Lynch gets to show she's pretty. (It's one of the things I loved in Julie and Julia.)2. Charlie Sheen. Who thought it was a good idea to let him present, much less give that completely self-serving speech?3. I swear that the people who vote for the comedy awards are watching different shows than I'm watching.4. This show is painfully unfunny.
So "The Suitcase" gets entirely shut out, huh? No directing, no writing, no love for the stars. That's a travesty. Not that I'm unhappy about Chandler and Katims - I'm thrilled - but that was one of the finest hours of television that has ever been made, and it's horribly sad that it didn't get recognized.
We are obviously using different definitions of the word "attainable."
The reference for this question, BTW:http://throwingthings.blogspot.com/2006/05/all-of-his-life-he-has-resisted-tug-of.html#comments
Aside from the awesome Chandler and Martindale news (like Maret I screamed with joy, good thing I was the only person in the office), the one thing that I found particularly interesting was that reaction to Barry Pepper winning for The Kennedys was SO polarized. After reading the comments on Twitter I thought, "Wait, are some of these people being ironic? *Sigh*, I don't even know anymore..." Either I was exhausted or Emmys, get off my lawn, I guess.
So thrilled for Kyle Chandler and FNL!My favorite commentary (from Vulture, I think from the Fug Girls): Julianne Margulies looked like she was part Dalek.Also, from Linda Holmes's live-commenting partner Matt someone, re Kyle Chandler's surprise at winning: You'd think he would've known, what with seeing it in tomorrow's paper.
When was she ever attainable? She was always out of all of our leagues.
Also, Kate Winslet now has EGO -- what play or musical should she do to get the T?
Seemed like the producers knew that moment was going to happen, since that seemed to be the only "Best Actor" award that didn't have a reel of clips of each nominee playing, and instead had the presenters reading off the nominee names. Still - I loved it. It was such a fun show of solidarity - maybe I'm corny, but it felt like a "we're all winners" moment, and I loved that when the winner was announced, the people congratulating and hugging her were her fellow nominees.
I dunno, but it should be scored by Michael Giacchino for the rare Double EGOT.
Did anyone else fall off the couch when Lynch, looking like a drag king in her gown, said, "This is why I'm a lesbian" by way of introducing the Entourage boys? Or when Poehler and McCarthy turned the tables on male presenters who give the obligatory "a good year for women on TV" speech?
My 80s teen self was unduly distracted the whole telecast by the strange web of brat pack connections 25-years-later, including Rob Lowe presenting, Mare Winningham nominated, and Duckie’s new sitcom co-star . . . Demi Moore’s husband (who was seven years old when St. Elmo’s was released) replacing co-star Emilio Estevez’s younger brother.
Guest was me
That whole thing was ghastly. The writing was more flat than on most shows (which is saying something), the chorus was dumb AND lip synched, everyone was trying hard and failing, Hallelujah is not an in Memoriam song and Il Divo did the nearly impossible, making me hate a rendition of that song, and giving Charlie Sheen a podium to start his Torpedo of Apologies tour was stupid. Am I wrong? Maybe I'm just over awards shows.
