Emmy Results and Commentary

I loved the opening of the Emmys, I basically texted that it was all of my favorite people.  Really smart and well done, this makes me look forward to the show. 

Side note, I realized that I didn't have writing in the ballot.  I will leave the website where I got this ballot out of the post, but really they should have included it.

Louie deserved his Emmy for best writing, to quote a tweet about him, "he's won comedy, now what?" 

Doyle from Gilmore Girls won an Emmy!!! He was also on Buffy.  I really liked Game Change, too bad I didn't get to include writing in my Emmy competition....Blogger Fail. 

Meg killed it, and I might just watch too much TV.....NEVER!

Drama Series (Meg)

"Homeland"---"Could also see this getting it, but it is the first season." My initial comments.  Glad to see it win, Showtime subscribers will go up for the premiere.  I am about to renew my subscription.

Actress in a Drama (Meg)

Claire Danes, "Homeland"---"I would love to see Claire accept it pregnant."  Love that she won, Homeland is so good.

Actor in a Drama (Meg)

Damian Lewis, "Homeland"----"Could also be a winner." My original comment, I fully support this choice.  His work is outstanding.  Can't wait for season 2.

Supporting Actress in a Drama (Meg)

Maggie Smith, "Downton Abbey"--She is one of my favorite parts of Dowton Abbey.

Supporting Actor in a Drama (Neither)

Aaron Paul, "Breaking Bad"---I didn't expect him to get it a second time around, even though his work was amazing.

Comedy Series (Neither)

"Modern Family"---Well Modern Family dominated, and I think that the voters' love for this show is a little bit much, and there's much better tv out there.  This is good tv, but not great tv.

Actress in a Comedy (Meg) Sad Amy didn't organize anything with all of them.  The speech thing was funny.  It is a shame, Amy didn't win.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Veep"--I still need to get around to Veep.

Actor in a Comedy (Neither)

Jon Cryer, "Two And A Half Men"---I don't want to knock Jon Cryer, but I am just wondering the taste level of Emmy voters with 2 and a half Men and Modern Family.  I don't even watch 2 and a half Men.

Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Neither)

Julie Bowen, "Modern Family"--Not that she doesn't deserve it, but I now fall asleep to Modern Family.

Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Neither)

Eric Stonestreet, "Modern Family"--- Not that he doesn't deserve this award, but I wish they would spread the Emmy love outside of Modern Family.

Reality Competition Program (Meg)

"The Amazing Race"---Wishing I watched, or made my choices based on what the Emmy voters would choose.

Host for Reality Competition Program (Neither)

Tom Bergeron "Dancing With The Stars"--Quick story, when Dancing with the Stars was a lowly Friday night show circa 2005, we used to watch it while getting ready to go out in college.  Haven't watched it since, and I am shocked it turned into such a big show or has been on the air for so long. 

Movie or Miniseries Series (Meg)

"Game Change"--The only one Meg watched....see my comments above. Wow, Tom Hanks.

Actress in a Movie or Miniseries (Meg)

Julianne Moore, "Game Change"---"Toss up"  I will always default to Connie Britton.  But I did like Game Change, and I thought her performance was great!

Actor in a Movie or Miniseries (Neither)

Kevin Costner, "Hatfields & McCoys"--Probably still won't watch it, but 12 year old TV Lass would have been all over it.

Supporting Actress in a Movie or Miniseries (Neither)

Jessica Lange, "American Horror Story"---I plan to watch this, but I am afraid I won't sleep.

Supporting Actor in a Movie or Miniseries (Neither)

Tom Berenger, "Hatfields & McCoys"---I kind of wanted to watch this, but I wasn't up for frontier stories.
