So, the Emmys. The best part of the whole show is that it came in right on time at three hours. The worst part is that it was three hours of nothing really surprising, nothing really funny, nothing really shocking, though there were a couple of bright spots ... Viola, Regina, Transparent ... so let's rip ...
I find it odd that a show that honors television can be so bad. And Samberg was okay; there were some hits—‘Paula Deen is on this season of Dancing with the Stars. If I wanted to see an intolerant woman dance, I’d have gone to any one of Kim Davis’ four weddings—and some misses—I’d like To Give The World An Emmy and The Best Boss skits fell flatter than a bad soufflé.
I get Andy Samberg confused with Jimmy Fallon. But a low-key jimmy Fallon, he was last night.
His first win, and for the show’s last season but enough about that. Jon Hamm has got to be the sexist man ever. Seriously; I paused and just stared.
LL Cool J and that damned hat.
“The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity.” Funny, in 67 years not one black actress has won Outstanding Dramatic Actress. Sixty.Seven.Years. Is it because there are no black winners or because there are rarely black actresses as leads in drama series? Uh huh.
Fred Savage is adorable. Except he has a Mike Tyson Little Boy Voice.
OUTSTANDING COMEDY SERIES
The whole time Amy Schumer and Amy Poehler were presenting I kept thinking they should win the award fro Most In Need Of A Hairbrush.
I can’t with Tracy Morgan. Sorry about his accident, but I can’t with him.
OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
I loved when James Cordden made the audience stand and cheer for The Accountants.
Enough with the rip-off of the Billy Crystal Inserted In Movies bit. It was old after the first year.
… So glad that Transparent won; it’s nice to see these kinds of stories honored, but …
Bradley Whitford trying to have a Pharrell moment by wearing a crazy hat just screamed “Look at me! Look at me!!”
VARIETY TALK SERIES … The Daily Show With Jon Stewart … WRITING FOR A VARIETY SERIES … The Daily Show With Jon Stewart … DIRECTING FOR A VARIETY SERIES … Chuck O’Neil for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
I kinda wish Letterman had taken the prize, but Stewart deserves it.
I can’t with Terrence Howard. He just seems like a smug, nasty misogynist every time I see him. Next time just have Cookie present the award, m’kay?
REALITY-COMPETITION SERIES … The Voice
For the first time in many moons, The Amazing Race doesn’t win. I blame Not Enough Shots Of Phil's Crotch ... because it's real, and it's spectacular.
I know they have to do the In Memoriam bit but it always seems like a drag though I loved that they played the late Eva Cassidy’s version of ‘Over the Rainbow.’ It always makes me weepy.
