Emmies

I was watching the Patriots-Chargers game. It was a blowout early. I flipped to the Emmys. Robert Duvall was giving an acceptance speech. I pulled an episode of "Survivorman" up off the DVR. Watched it. Flipped back to the Emmys. Robert Duvall was giving an acceptance speech.

That is all.

Oh wait, it's not. I have to do my traditional post-Emmy bitching. James freakin' Spader for best actor? Yeah, James Gandolfini was phoning it in that final season (note, that's sarcasm). And given that Fox didn't let Hugh Laurie host the show specifically because they were afraid half-wit "House" fans would be confused by his British accent, isn't that actual evidence that the boy can act? Sally Field over Edie Falco was unjust.

Aside from that, I can't really bitch too much. Terry O'Quinn winning supporting actor was a nice surprise, "30 Rock" getting best comedy was richly deserved. Honestly, the picks weren't as bad as they usually are.

More crickets.

Apparently it was the least watched Emmy's in HISTORY. Down 3 million from last year.

'Bout time.

Who wants to see over glamorized, ego maniacs getting their ego's stroked? Again. 'Specially when there's FOOTBALL ON! ;)

Second least-watched, technically.

I'm not opposed to Hollywood puffery - I like the Oscars. The Emmys, however terrible they may be, are at least better than the Grammys.

Ah yes... according to your paper yesterday it did say MAY HAVE been the least watched, based on prelim results. My bad. Gotta love how the media sensationalizes everything to get people to read stuff. The media bobble heads no longer just report the news... they gotta MAKE the news.

So anywho... the Emmys still sucked and it would appear that MOST people are tired of watching Pompous Actor A recieving Pompous Actor Award C... for DOING THEIR JOB - no matter what industry. I don't watch the Emmys, the Oscars or the Gammys, er... Grammys.

I'd rather watch - Moonlight! ;)
