So, if you've followed this blog at all, you know that I'm a huge TV addict, my love for books aside. So, it's with a fevered frothiness that I anticipate the Emmys...not so much because I think the nominations are the true highlights of the best of TV (because, er, Lost was amazing last season and the fact that it wasn't nominated is shameful, and while I don't watch The Wire, critics said the same about that), but because hey, it's a chance to see (and critique) all of my favorite (and not so favorite) celebs. And of course, to root for a few of 'em too.
So my thoughts on last night? ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
Was it just me or was that not the most boring snoozefest? I mean, seriously! I guess it was made a little bit interesting by the fact that so many of the wins were unexpected (um, James Spader???), but still. I can't even think of anyone who I thought was so gorgeously dressed that I'm dying to chat about her here. And those musical numbers? Ugh, I wanted to claw my eyes out.
I will say that while I was really disappointed that Jenna Fisher didn't win, I'm cool with Jaime Pressly victory. Cool story: I actually interviewed her a few months back, and when the piece came out, she sent me flowers! I mean, come on! Jaime Pressly sent me flowers??? I almost fainted when my doorman handed them to me, and I read the card. Pretty classy, so yeah, I'm okay with her win.
And I was also torn over the 30 Rock win. If you don't watch it, you should. It's is so freaking hilarious that it even sucked in my husband, who has sworn off all new tv shows because we already have too many on our list. But, as you guys probably know, I'm a devoted Office-phile, so I was a little bummed for them, as well as for Steve Carell's loss...though when he bounded on stage, I nearly peed in my pants. I've also been lucky enough to get to know Melora Hardin a bit (she's so super-awesome and the opposite of Jan in real life), and I was hoping to see her on stage in a fabulous dress!
Anyhoo, speaking of Carell, I have a cover story out with him now! The interview might have been one of the highlights of my career...I kid you not. He was so cool and funny and warm, and writing it meant that I got to interview other members of the cast, so, here it is. At times like these, I really love my job. :)
So...what did you guys think of last night, for those of you who watched? Anyone wow you with her dress? Thrilled for anyone's victory?
