So here’s a link to last night’s Emmy award winners: http://www.emmys.org/awards/primetimeawards.php
I’m not really going to go into the winners or the nominees because honestly I don’t care. Maybe there is just too much tv. I know not the worst thing in the world, right? In a system designed for the big three networks, we’re now up to five (nbc, abc, cbs, fox, cw – formerly upn and wb) and the ever growing population of great cable tv programming, can the Emmy’s really do it justice? They would never influence what I watch and I’m not even excited or disappointed with actor’s nominations and wins. I can’t even keep up with it all, so with television what does the academy do, tune into one submitted episode? It just isn’t how the medium should be evaluated. So what do I suggest? Honestly I say bag the whole thing, but I know that won’t happen so now on to the show.
Ryan Seacrest was the host this year and didn’t do an abysmal job. All in all he’s cheesy and that works for him on his other stuff but it just doesn’t seem appropriate for this. I admit that I fast forwarded through most of the features (Family Guy musical number?, Roots, ‘In Memoriam’) and anything Sopranos related (since I’m only on season 4 on dvd and they keep talking about the stupid ending). And I’ll try not to nitpick too much, but how stupid was the seating in the round? Oh and I almost forgot the preshow kept mentioning how Britney was going to apologize for sucking. Really? Thank gawd that didn’t happen.
As for the fashion, as always there was some good and some bad, but unfortunately nothing great or ridiculous, that I got a gander of at least. The stupid preshow did a terrible job of showing clothes and when they did, they did a close pan up from shoes to the top of someone’s dress, but they never gave you a whole body shot, so unless someone presented or accepted it was tough to tell. That doesn’t mean I can’t judge, overall I thought the ladies that shone were: Mini Driver, Debra Messing, Rebecca Gayheart, Portia de Rossi and Eva Longoria.
