AND THE WINNER IS??? by hyphenator

Or do we really care?  Apparently not that much because according to Hollywood Reporter the 60th Annual Emmy Awards was the least watched ceremony in history!  Viewing rates were down 12% from last year when Ryan Seacrest hosted the awards.  NBC topped the viewing polls with Sunday Night Football pulling in more viewers than the Emmys.  One MSNBC critic said “For a TV show that celebrates how fantastic television is, the Emmys sure manage to be an exceptionally boring TV show…”.  You know the night isn’t going well when Jeremy Piven and Don Rickles mock the lameness of the night’s events!

“To be honest with you, I was having this moment watching it where I didn’t know where I was.  I didn’t know what was happening … I thought we were being punk’d as an audience”. -Jeremy Piven 

For those who didn’t stay awake or just couldn’t help themselves from changing the channel, here are some of the nights big winners: 

  • Outstanding Comedy Series:  30 Rock
  • Outstanding Drama Series: Mad Men
  • Outstanding Lead Actor in Comedy Series: Alex Baldwin, 30 Rock
  • Outstanding Lead Actor in Drama Series: Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
  • Outstanding Lead Actress in Comedy Series: Tina Fey, 30 Rock

  • Outstanding Lead Actress in Drama Series: Glen Close, Damages
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in Comedy Series: Jeremy Piven, Entourage
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress in Comedy Series: Jean Smart, Samantha Who?
  • Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program (New Category): Jeff Probst, Survivor
  • Outstanding Reality Program: Kathy Griffin: My Life On the D-List
  • Outstanding Reality-Competition Program: The Amazing Race
  • Outstanding Animated Program: The Simpsons


Maybe next year the Emmy’s will get some help from Tina Fey….she’s smart, she can act and she can write!

Tina Fey is the lamest of sauces. I’d pay at least 12 dollars never to have to see her again.
