Preach, Ron Swanson
Honestly, I don’t know why I watch the Emmys anymore. Because all I seem to do, beginning with the day the nominations come out, is hate on them. As a somewhat (HA!) passionate TV viewer, it just makes me nuts that so much quality television, ESPECIALLY in the Comedy category is ignored every year. Heads up to Emmy voters, and I say this as a fan of the show, but there are more comedies on the air than just Modern Family. That being said…let’s look at what went down last night.
My Red Carpet Thoughts:
–I hope whoever invented the Mani-cam dies a slow and painful death.
–Hey, did you guys know that Giuliana Rancic is a mother now? *eye roll*
–I will never forgive E! for deeming the casts of Sherlock and Downton Abbey not good enough for their coverage. I NEEDED TO SEE MY BEAUTIFUL BRITS.
–I cheered when Tina Fey hit the red carpet in color. She so often sticks to black/neutrals and she looked flawless in that burgundy. She’s my best dressed of the night, with the runner-up slots going to Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
–Least favorite dress was Emily Van Camp. I’m over illusion paneling and that color did NOTHING for her.
On to the ceremony…nothing will ever top Jimmy Fallon’s “Born to Run” opening ever. But nice try, Kimmel.
Supporting Actor in a Comedy: I refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of this category as it does not include Parks and Rec’s Nick Offerman, Community’s Danny Pudi and Jim Rash and HIMYM’s Neil Patrick Harris. Honestly, I think they should put a cap on how many people from one show can be nominated because the Supporting Actor in a Comedy is TOO DEEP to fill 4 of the slots with people from the same show. Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet wins (a bit of a surprise, I was expecting Ty Burrell) and gives a very sweet shout out to onscreen hubby Jesse Tyler Ferguson in his speech.
