hey hey! as i mentioned earlier - here are a few quick & random thoughts on tonight's 59th annual emmy awards! overall the show wasn't that bad - as with most award shows i was hooked in the beginning and then i slowly lost interest over time...i did have to swap out some of the water in my fish tank (three weeks and counting with no dead fish...woo hoo!)
1 - this year the shows aired on FOX and that was totally apparent once cutie host ryan seacrest hit the theater in the round set-up! oh my gosh - i had american idol flashbacks - and then they opened with that whole family guy musical sequence - of course it's totally time to pimp out the new fall schedule!
2 - who else loved the awkward moment between ryan seacrest & teri hatcher at the beginning?!? don't forget last year we saw them locking lips...
3 - i think terry o'quinn (who plays 'locke') is hot and looked adorable in his pink shirt & black sequined tie! i swear i'm going to watch seasons 2 & 3 of lost so i can join in the fun of season #4 which i believe doesn't kick off until january!
4 - every time i see julia louis-dreyfus i can't help but think - oh there's the 'lady' who stole valerie cherish's emmy last year (she took home best lead comedy actress beating out lisa kudrow...ugh!)
5 - paula abdul is still with her boyfriend j.t. torregiani
6 - did you all hear that lady announcer mispronounced katherine heigl's name? ms. heigl was quick to correct her - gosh she's stunningly gorgeous (and i have a huge crush on her sexy musician fiancee josh kelly)
7 - haven't we seen christina aguilera & tony bennett perform together before? i feel like those two have been milking 'stepping out' for a long time - for sure she was stepping out with her baby - looking glowing & pregnant in her pink gown!
8 - oh my word! kyra sedgwick - glenn close - mary-louise parker! all presenting together - they're all totally fierce and i adore each of their respective shows! (especially damages!)
9 - ok for the record elaine stritch fucking rocks!
10 - ryan seacrest dressed as a tudor does absolutely nothing for me! give me jonathan rhys-meyers or give me death!
11 - kayne west was at the emmys?!? (no sight of britney spears...)
12 - i do love watching the amazing race but don't you think five emmys in a row is a little much for one show?!? i say give someone else a chance!
13 - omg - i love legendary actress sally field and although i'm not a fan of brothers & sisters at least she has been saved from dealing with those darn boniva commercials! and what the hell did she say that got totally censored for about 10-15 seconds?!? it was obviously a curse filled rant on the war in iraq - i'm glad she thought to speak her mind and not worry about what everyone else thought...
14 - go america ferrera for her win as best comedic lead actress in my fave show ugly betty - she's way adorable and her character 'betty suarez' rules!
15 - james spader is such a kooky guy but an incredible actor - i need to get back to watching boston legal - this past season i totally lost touch with the show :(
16 - even though i'm bummed ugly betty lost for best comedy - i am thrilled tina fey and her team took home the award for 30 rock - another one of my favorite shows! thirty minutes of pure comedic bliss!
17 - of course the show ran over three hours - and helen mirren quickly dished out the award to the sopranos for best drama - i was never into the show but it seemed like a give-in they would take home the emmy - although none of the actors took home any awards this evening!
so that's about all i got for tonight - i'm pretty beat and of course i've got to get up and deal with the good times that tomorrow will certainly bring! popbytes over & out - much love to all as always...xxoo!
