Emmy Fever

Emmy nods that I was happy about:
  • Outstanding Choreography: 81st Academy Awards Musicals are Back
  • Outstanding Comedy Series: Family Guy (The Simpsons people are probably alternately thrilled and disappointed about this.)
  • Outstanding Costumes for a Series: dear departed Pushing Daisies *sigh*
  • Outstanding Directing for a variety, music or comedy series: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report (These 2 shows also got a bunch of other well-deserved nominations.)
  • Outstanding Directing for a variety, music or comedy special: Beijing 2008 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony
  • Outstanding Guest Actress in Drama Series: Ellen Burstyn and Brenda Blethyn for Law and Order SVU
  • Outstanding Guest Actress in Comedy Series: Tina Fey as (thank goodness) ex-Gov. Sarah Palin on SNL and of course, Elaine Stritch on 30 Rock
  • Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory. He is so funny and so good. Sheldon rules!
  • Outstanding Music and Lyrics: the Oscars Hugh Jackman opening number and A Colbert Christmas
  • Outstanding Reality Program: My Life on the D-List. Yey Kathy! Her special She'll cut a Bitch also got a nod. Who's D-list now?
  • Outstanding non-Fiction Special: Michael J. Fox Adventures of an Incurable Optimist. This show made me cry.
  • Outstanding Special Class Program: 62nd Tony Awards, despite the terrible sound.
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: our Tony and Emmy host, Neil Patrick Harris from How I met your Mother
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth from *sniffle* Pushing Daisies, 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski, SNL's Amy Poehler and Kristin Wiig. How about a Grammy or maybe even an Oscar for Cheno?!
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Michael Emerson from Lost. Love him!
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or movie: Gollum himself, Andy Serkis from BBC's Little Dorrit.
HBO's Grey Gardens also got nominated a couple of times. (Too bad I don't have HBO and haven't seen it. Will Ferrell's You're Welcome America A Final Night with George Bush also got nods, as well as Louis CK, Real Time with Bill Maher and Late Night with David Letterman. Congratulations also to the writers of Lost on their Emmy nom.

The winners of the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced on 20 September on CBS at 8 PM.
