On the whole I am not in love with the Emmy noms because for the most part they went to critically acclaimed, low watched shows that air on cable or to actors who started out on the big screen. But then there was some nice surprises that had me clapping like Family Guy, Jim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory, Christina Applegate for Samantha Who?, Chandra Wilson for The Accidental Friendship, Family Guy, William Shatner and Christian Clemenson for Boston Legal, Kristin Chenoweth for Pushing Daisies, Neil Patrick Harris for How I Met Your Mother, So You Think You Can Dance’s Bleeding Love number and finally Family Guy and How I Met Your Mother for Best Comedy!!!
OMFG I would love to have been in the room when Seth MacFarlane found out that Family Guy was finally nominated for its much deserved Emmy! Can you tell how ecstatic I am that Family Guy, the little show that could, was nominated!!!!
What I also loved about this years Emmys are the names that are missing!!! Katherine Heigl, who complained that the writers didn’t write for, so when they gave her a brain tumor the Emmy voters didn’t care! Mr Mercury Poisoning Jeremy Piven was not nominated for playing himself, he must be so p!ssed!!! America Ferrera is seconds closer to her 15 minutes being up because she wasn’t nominated again for Ugly Betty!!! Hey ABC you kept Ugly Betty that got you one nom and cancelled Samantha Who?, Boston Legal and Pushing Daisies that got you 4 noms together. Maybe next time listen to us before you ax a show, we know what the Emmy voters like!!!
There are some bummers for me of people who weren’t nominated like Cat Deeley for So You Think You Can Dance, Gale Harold for Desperate Housewives (just cause I would like to see him in a tux, Bones, Rescue Me and ER for an amazing final season.
Largely because of Family Guy and Neil Patrick Harris hosting the show, I can’t wait to watch the Emmys on September 20th on CBS!!!
