I wasn’t going to watch the Emmy’s because I don’t watch “Breaking Bad.” so I figured I miss all the references, but then Liz texted me a photo of her Emmy Make-up and I was in. A clean, fresh, non-smokey eye ? If Liz could go non-smokey eye, the least I could do was tune in. Some Random Thoughts…
Well done: Will Farrell, Jeff Daniels, Ellen Burstyn and Stephen Colbert.
Very Happy for the Colbert Report which has risen to another level this year. A well-deserved victory over the Daily Show. And I loved when Stephen said that his mom never worried about him.
Best of the Night; Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She looked great and she did great. A little pre-production goes a long way. Her acceptance speech with her bag man from Veep ,Tony Hale, was spot on. She’s the best. Really.
(Derek Hough, take note. ‘Holy Crap!” is not really a speech. But I loved that dance number.)
Runner up: Tina Fey who has reached a point in her career where she so confident in her creative voice, she is always dead on funny. And she looked beautiful.
Bronze Medal: Sophia Vergara. Could she be more delightful?
Women taking home trophies for Best Writing and Best Directing in a Comedy in the same year? That must be a first. Could it be a trend?
Oh, no. Because then they read the list of writers for the Late Night Shows are they are 98% men.
Loved the song-and-dance from NPH, but could have used fewer off -color jokes from the host. Sorry, Neil. Not your best for me.
Glad to see the Deschanel Sisters coordinated their outfits just like the Satellite Sisters.
Is Conan O’Brien still on TV? And is that show Political Animals ever coming back? Should I get Showtime?
Most Pleasant Man on Earth: Tim Gunn
Loveliest Dress: Kerry Washington
That was Unfortunate: Clare Dane’s Dress
The In Memoriums were well done but very sad. And. so was that tape of Walter Cronkite announcing President’ Kennedy’s death. Hard to rebound from the downer energy.
I didn’t understand Sir Elton John’s tribute to Liberace. Sorry. And Carrie Underwood’s version of Yesterday was a head-scratcher for me. But I loved Bob Newhart’s tears.
I wonder if Ben Affleck is jealous of Michael Douglas.
Little Known Fact: I have Juliann’s Hough’s Haircut. And that is where the similarities end.
Dylan McDermott, welcome to TV.
