What a show! For the first time in years, the Primetime Emmy Awards were an exciting, entertaining, interesting show to watch. Shows that deserved to win won (Modern Family, Mad Men), actors who’ve been due for a while finally got their shot (Aaron Paul, Jim Parsons) and there were actually some surprise winners (I’m still trying to figure out who or what an Archie Panjabi is). Perhaps it’s because I am still a 14-year-old fangirl at heart, but I thought Jimmy Fallon did an excellent job hosting, with the right mixture of his bizarre Late Night humor (his intro for – and subsequent hugging of – Tom Selleck) and his obvious overall enthusiasm for television (the opening, his musical farewells to 24, Law & Order and Lost). (And seriously, that opening? Kind of made my life tonight. Hurry and go YouTube it before they take it down, folks, it was ah-mazing.) The only real bummer of the night (besides COCO losing!) was the Miniseries/Movie segment which went on for about 1300 years (or like, 45 minutes).
If (for some reason) you’d like to read my real-time reactions to the Emmy events, you can see what I posted on Twitter (beware there’s probably a lot of ALL CAPS. I was excited.); otherwise, continuing the tradition of my old Xanga blog, I now present:
