tivo blogging the emmys

Why do people keep putting these award shows up against football? And last night was the premiere of ‘Bored to Death’ on HBO. If there was any possibility of watching the Emmys, that went right out the window when they opened with singing and dancing. But apparently I should have watched that because the awesome Neil Patrick Harris was awesome. That dude can do anything. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like him. He’s a more convincing cool ladies man than I’ve ever been, which is extremely troubling considering he’s gay and I’m not.

Still the Emmys are fuckin retarded. They never recognize anything good. ’30 Rock’ over ‘Flight of the Conchords’? Fuck you. The winner is always some lowest-common denominator mush. If ‘Best Painter’ were an Emmy category, Thomas Kinkade would be holding his trophy on stage and plugging his website while Marcel Duchamp sat in the audience smiling politely.

Vincent D’Onofrio created one of the best characters ever on ‘Criminal Intent’, he might be the best actor on earth, and I don’t think he was ever even nominated. Same with Kathryn Erbe on that same show. The first 4 years of that show were amazing, the story arc they had with Olivia D’Abo as Nicole Wallace is some of the best things ever put on television and no one even noticed. More recently, how many years in a row does Shemar Moore have to be awesome on ‘Criminal Minds’ before someone gives him his due?  That dude should be a huge star.  And what about Randy Watson as Joe the Policeman in the ‘Whats Goin Down’ episode of ‘That’s My Momma’?  Where’s his trophy?  I’m all for people having their own interests and opinions, except when they conflict with my own and then in that case you’re wrong and I hate you and I hope you die.

And I don’t have any segue for this but Olivia Wilde looked awesome.
