Love Jeff Probst and I’m glad he won for Survivor. He’s one of the original “OG” (gangster talk, like that?) reality hosts and I’m glad he’s still getting the recognition. Although, I would have been equally as happy if Tom Bergeron won. Not because I like Dancing With The Stars, but because I really think Tom Bergeron is a class act all around. Glad Seacrest got the snub.
Amazing Race won. Amazing Race always wins. Nothing new. Still haven’t watched a full season. Another award doesn’t entice me to, either.
Up next were the TV/Mini-series awards. House of Saddam won. Didn’t see it. Almost did, twice, but then I didn’t. I don’t know why. Haven’t really watched any of these nominated. Tried watching The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice, but it was really bad compared to the other Librarian movies. Still, I love Bob Newhart and he should win because he’s Bob Newhart. (Could you think of a better reason? Yeah, thought so.)
Blah, blah, blah… Some more awards for mini-series/TV movies that I’ve never heard about lets me know how left out other people feel when I talk nerdy about movies and what not around them. I would say that I’m going to go back and check them out, but that would be a lie and I’d only be saying it impress you. That being said, I’m going to go back and check out some of these mini-series. (Well? Did it Work?)
As always, the accountants come up to tell us how they count votes. (I always assumed with their fingers, until they reach 10 and then they have to put a mark somewhere to remember.)
Dr. Horrible! Dr. Horrible took over the accountants talking about boring things.
Oh, that was amazing. I just love Dr. Horrible and as we’ve heard previously, Dr. Horrible was going to make an appearance. It was everything I could have hoped for with Nathan Fillion is his full Captain Hammer glory. I have to say that I believe his acting in his whole “Captain Hammer” manner was much better than in the original musical. I don’t know what it was, but he just seemed better. I can’t wait for the next installment.
Some more awards for things I’m too ignorant to know of (See below for a full list of winners.) and then on to the Variety Awards. American Idol won directing… also had the least funny nomination video.
The Daily Show won best writing, but Conan had the best video with ignoring Facebook requests. The Academy Awards won for the opening number with Hugh Jackman. I thought it was alright. It was around the same quality as the song that NPH (See, still sticking with it) did to open the show. Although, their speech was pretty great. The Daily Show won the big award for best variety series.
Finally, the awards for Drama. Michael Emerson (Ben Linus) won for Lost. I like his character, but I would have been completely behind it if Jeremy Davies (Daniel Faraday) was nominated/would have won. Love that character. (Almost cried when he died.) (Spoiler!) (Oops.) (Too Late.)
Cherry Jones won for 24. Still haven’t really watched that show. Tried to get into season one, but it just didn’t work for me. Same thing with Mad Men. That’s probably why I don’t have so many quips for these awards. I didn’t watch The Sopranos until the entire series was over, but when I started, I watched the entire series in one week. (I was sick. Not lazy. Well, a little lazy.)
ER won for the finale and beat out the BSG (Battlestar Galactica) finale. Don’t know how I feel about that. Although, I do love John Stamos.
Mad Men won for writing. It’s not a surprise considering they, like 30 Rock, were nominated for 4 out of the 5 spots.
Glenn Close won for Damages. I can’t say anything bad about that. I love Glenn Close and I love Damages. Although, ever since The West Wing, I’ve always liked Elisabeth Moss and even though I’ve never seen Mad Men, I assume she’s great in it.
Bryan Cranston finished out the Drama category by winning for Breaking Bad. I’ve followed Breaking Bad from the beginning and was really disappointed by the second season finale. Also, I don’t believe Bryan Cranston is the best actor in the show. Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman, does a great job and helps keep my attention when other things are slow. He got nominated for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series” this year – here’s hoping he actually wins it next year.
It was time to wrap up the night with the big awards. The best of the best. Or… the best of the shows listed.
