That Emmy sure was at the top of her game on Sunday night. Not since the days that Billy Crystal did the opening number at the Oscars have I enjoyed an awards opening. I mean, COME ON. Jon Hamm was dancing and singing..and Kate Gosselin was, well, not.
Overall, I enjoyed Jimmy Fallon as a host – – – the singing was good, including his nod to not understanding LOST at all as sung by a fake Billie Joe Armstrong. The banter was good…”..sending an NBC late-show host to Los Angeles to host a different show — what could possibly go wrong?”
Buckygunts! Dear god, I love me some Ricky Gervais.
Julia Ormond made my spit out my drink. “I’ve been eminated for a nommy!” LOVE.
I am currently downloading Breaking Bad because I have heard only good things, and apparently, Emmy loves this show. I thought they did a good job of giving nods to shows I love – – – Modern Family and Mad Men. But, you guys, LOST was robbed. I mean, LOST. LOST! No love for the smoke monster? Also, with the exception of Jane Lynch’s super well-deserved win, Glee got way too overlooked for me. I mean, that show is GOLD.
For the first time, I saw the appeal of George Clooney. It’s not that I didn’t ever notice him, it’s just that he never showed up on my radar. But, he was lovely up there. I mean, his Bob Hope Humanitarian acceptance speech seemed so natural; it really leads be to believe that this man is nothing but charming in real life.
There is little that made me happier than seeing Temple Grandin snag all those awards. KUDOS.
…And now to the moment you have been waiting for…
The ones I loved.
The ones who need new stylists…
