Emmy Emmy Emmys!!

I'm just going to go down the complete list and comment from time to time...comments in blue

Outstanding Animated Program (less an an hour)
Family Guy totally deserved here
Simpsons shouldn't they already have a bazillion Emmy's by now?
South Park without Chef? how could they?

Outstanding Art Direction for a Multi-Camera Series
How I Met Your Mother
Stacked is that still on?
Will & Grace only the most-used set in Hollywood for pilots ever

Art Direction for a Single-Camera Series
Desperate Housewives long as Hatcher doesn't win anything
House yes please
Nip/Tuck in general, and specific...this show scares me
Six Feet Under ok...we get it HBO's great

Casting for a Drama Series
Big Love
Boston Legal hells yes please...James Spader...and HELLOO "Denny Crane"
Grey's Anatomy Shonda did casting the way it should be done...don't physically box people in, let the characters speak for themselves. Allowing the characters on the page find the actors they want ignores the actor's physicality and concentrates on their ability and craft.

Dancing with the Stars x3
High School the Musical KENNY ORTEGA!!! of Newsboys Choreography/Directing fame totally deserves this...even though I haven't seen this...though I should have
Suite Life of Zach and Cody

Cinematography for Nonfiction
The Apprentice
Project Runway both a hells yes please...can they share?

John Cryer -- 2.5 Men I'm not a fan of the show, but c'mon he was DUCKIE!
Sean Hayes -- W&G oh gee...forgot about him...but the emmy goes to *hands* JUST JACK!

Supporting Actor in a Drama
William Shatner -- Boston Legal so just give it to competition who are these other guys reall?

Supporting Actress in a Comedy
Cheryl Hines -- Curb I must admit...brilliant
Alfre Woodard -- Desperate Housewives Just because she got killed off on Inconceivable
Jaime Pressly -- Earl
Elizabeth Perkins -- Weeds
Megan Mullally -- W&G Court...Meg's got some tough competition. Final season included. Yikes, Weeds! So a Drug Dealer in Weeds, and Trailer Trash in Earl and then Meg's a Drunk/Prescription-addicted Socialite, Alfre's got someone locked away in her basemetn and Cheryl's got Larry David. Which can we all agree is just as bad as the other situations?

Supporting Actress in a Drama
Candice Bergen -- Boston Legal amazing
Sandra Oh -- Grey's didn't she already win? if so...let someone else up to bat
Chandra Wilson -- Grey's So...basically Dr Bailey needs to kick ass here. I think Bailey could take on Bergen...maybe not Blythe Danner...well it would be a close match. Let's watch them fight it out. First one to the podeum wins! and.........go!
Blythe Danner -- Huff
Jean Smart -- 24

Guest Actor in a Comedy
I wouldn't normally talk about this particular award...but...look at the Nominees really?
Patrick Stewart -- Extras

Martin Sheen -- 2.5 Men
LESLIE JORDAN -- W&G Beverley Leslie show anyone? Hells yes.

Outstanding Comedy Series
Arrested Development duh, Critic's darling
Curb Your Enthusiasm is that your pant's tent or are you just happy to see me?
The Office So who was completely shocked when Jim and Pam kissed? Ummm...I died and went to heaven!
Scrubs Where have all my Tuesdays gone?
2.5 Men no thanks...I'll pass on that last one

Outstanding Drama Series
Grey's Anatomy the mid-season shocker! Gotta love it.
The Sopranos
West Wing I really want Grey's to win, but I have a hunch that West Wing will because it's over, and older people loved it

Outstanding Nonfiction Special
How William Shatner Changed the World there are no other nominees...this WILL win. It's hysterical. And I only saw the last 5 minutes of it. Hmmm...must TiVO!

Outstanding Reality Program

Penn and Teller: Bullshit!

Reality-Competition Program
The Amazing Race
American Idol
Dancing with the Stars
Project Runway NEEDS to win desperately. And should, really
uhh...The Apprentice is missing from that list...take off Dancing with the Stars

So I've waited practically a week to post this (seeing how it was only half done) but now it's done. I'm just gonna skip the other awards. I'm tired and finished with this and it's a SUPER long enjoy and feedback is welcome


  1. Debra won't win just because she sucked this season. But she must've picked a helluva tape to submit if it got her nominated. Kaczmarek deserves it - her episode was really really good. As far as supporting goes, Alfre wasn't funny, Jaime Pressly submitted FLAWLESS episodes, and Meg's the frontrunner even though she'll probably snatch defeat from the mouth of victory with a shitty submission like she does every year just b/c she doesn't give a crap. I'll be able to make a prediction once I know what episodes she submitted. Beverley and Baldwin should share, and Kevin James submitted "Pole Lox" as his Emmy tape, so that's genius on his part.

  2. I really just think that Jaime Pressly's gonna win. She's just amazing on Earl and it's totally broken her from being typecast in Can't Hardly Wait and Jack & Jill. But...I guess she still is being the dumb pretty girl...just add trashy and trailer-park in there too. Well, anyways she's awesome.

    And Kevin James...hells yes. He needs to win now. Simply for the Pole Dancing. And because we were there for the Emmy Winning Performance (Yes, I am getting ahead of myself)

  3. so i gotta say...i don't watch a lot of the shows that are up for emmys, but i think it's a crime that hugh laurie from house didn't get nominated, even though the show did. that show is amazing, but mostly because he is so wonderful. so that's my 2 cents.

  4. I totally agree...someone that's British and can pull off the American
    attitude and accent like he can is awesome.
