My amazing wife has stepped up to the plate to help me out with the blog. The following words are completely hers...
The nominations for the 2010 Primetime Emmys
were announced yesterday, and I am so excited to see a lot of my favorite shows and actors in the lineup:
This is a great show with a lot of heart. It’s up for Outstanding Comedy with several of its actors (Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, and Sofia Vergara) up for individual awards as well.
19 nominations! Outstanding Comedy, Actress (Lea Michele), Actor (Matthew Morrison), Supporting Actor (Chris Colfer), Supporting Actress (Jane Lynch), and even Guest Actor in a Comedy Series (Mike O’Malley and Neil Patrick Harris). Glee is so diverse and can go in so many different directions, I’m anxious to see what the next season brings. Supposedly John Stamos is joining the cast - maybe an Emmy nom for Uncle Jesse next year? Let’s hope.
I have a special place in my heart for this show because I want to be Jackie -- minus the drug-addicted-cheating-lying parts of her -- but I guess she wouldn’t be Jackie without her flaws. Edie Falco is up for Outstanding Actress and the show itself is up for Outstanding Comedy.
Mad Men is seriously genius. As a Generation Y kid, I am fascinated by the 60s, and this show really brings it to life for me. Mad Men is up for Outstanding Drama and January Jones, Jon Hamm, John Slattery, and Christina Hendricks are nominated as well.
Friday Night Lights
I recently started watching this show and have now caught up on all the seasons thanks to Netflix Instant. FNL has a horrible time slot on NBC (8pm Friday nights), but Kyle Chandler (up for Outstanding Actor) as Coach Taylor and his on screen wife Connie Britton (up for Outstanding Actress) really keep this show alive.
Random Nominations I love:
for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Betty is still rockin’ and was a class act on Saturday Night Live. The combination of Betty and many former comediennes including Tina Fey, Molly Shannon, and Ana Gasteyer was really enjoyable, and I wish SNL could bring it home like that every Saturday.
The Tonight Show
with Conan O’Brien for Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series. Need I say more? It’s only more evidence that NBC made a major mistake.
Conan himself said this
on Twitter yesterday.
Your host blogger Phil wants me to mention Breaking Bad
in this post, so there it is. The show got seven noms. You’re welcome.
