Quips, Quibbles and Witticisms Courtesy of the 2010 Emmy Nominations

If there’s anything that can break me out of a blogging funk, it’s the Emmys (or as I like to call it: the Superbowl for TV nerds). While I certainly don’t expect the 2010 ceremony to even come close to topping last year’s awards (Mad Men & 30 Rock continued their winning streaks, LORD WHEDON won his first trophy, and oh yeah the show was hosted by God, uh, Neil Patrick Harris), they definitely have a good start. In an attempt to A) appeal to younger viewers and B) make you forget that had he not been fired from his Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien probably would’ve hosted this year’s ceremony, NBC has tapped Jimmy Fallon to host. While this decision does seem a bit premature, Fallon’s take on Late Night has often proved to be innovative, creative and most importantly, entertaining so I am excited to see what he brings to the show.
