Now I know I'm a week late with this but I'm currently in Sweden which means the Emmys aired in the middle of the night on a channel I don't have. Luckily, my dad has it and was able to record the telecast for me. I watch it recently and here's what I thought:
First off, the host. Jane Lynch is one of my favorite comedians so I was excited to see how she'd do. I liked the opening number, it was a traditional way of opening the show with her being blended in with actors in their character personas and in the show setting. I approve. After that I thought she was rather invisible. The monologue was short but had it's moments. The finger pistols was a favorite. Her best joke was definetely the one with the cast of Entourage.
I might be alone in this but I did enjoy the EmmyTones, and especially llcooljs little interruption.
Now for the winners and losers. I love that Jim Parsons won for his work on Big Bang theory. I love him as Sheldon and he is fantastic every episode so definetely glad that he won. But to be honest I would have been happy if anyone but Alec Baldwin won, I'm sorry but when he was on his winning streak I got so sick of him, so I'm glad that's over.
Other than that I wasn't really rooting for anyone but Julie Bowens win was great since I've liked her since her time on Ed. Kyle Chandler winning was also a great moment, I have yet to seen the whole fifth season of Friday Night Lights since I went back to Sweden before all episodes had aired, but if he was a good as he always was then I'm sure he deserved it.
And why oh why does Mad men have to win again, I don't understand the appeal of this show and I would think the other contenders deserved it more.
My favorite part of the whole telecast was definetely the best actress in a comedy series bit. As soon as Amy Poehler hit the stage I was delighted. The whole bit was amazing and ending perfecly with Melissa McCarthy's win. The woman is hilarious.
The worst part, definetly Charlie Sheen's fake ass well wishes to Two and a half men. He had clearly been fed a line and there was no sincerity in it what so ever. He's publiscist probable figured out that people are sick of his antics and told him to be a good little boy at the Emmys. I'm so sick of hearing about this.
Also, why does Emmy hate Craig Ferguson. There is just no love for this brilliant man. I mean his inclusion in the variety/reality segment was so short and barely noticeable and definetly not the right pick of clip. Couldn't they at least showed a little more of his work....
Oh, and I don't know how I missed that the Jack Sparrow song that everyone is playing here in Sweden is actually made by an Snl group led by none other than Andy Samberg, I never heard of them while in the US but apparently they're big in Sweden.
Well, that's all I have to say for this year's Emmys, my overall grade would probably be a B+/A-.
