It’s that time of the year again!! Nope nope, not the academy, it’s just the good old Primetime Emmy :D I’m always excited for Emmys but lately with the recent improvement of programing quality (fine, dramas and comedies), i can’t help but to feel more enthusiastic to see which programs or actors or actresses would get the honor. This year the awarding ceremony Seth Meyers is hosting! I like that dude on SNL but i never saw his late night show so far. Anyways, some shows has been putting up serious promotional materials as they were vying for a nomination. Mad Men, which is coming to its finale season, did a series of cool period inspired ads for their FYC advertisement. Breaking Bad is still in the running with their unforgettable finale. A pleasant surprise for me is Orange is The New Black finally becoming one of the contenders for….comedy (though i personally think its a little too intense to be called comedy). I wonder if it would be able to dethroned 4 year consecutive winner, Modern Family. Continue reading
So yeah, i always excited about the Awards season, i even watch MTV Movie Award and Teen Choice just for having fun mocking the winners. So i’ve been anticipating for this year Emmy, just because Neil Patrick Harris is hosting. I enjoyed him in 2009 Emmy, but this one feel rather boring compared to that one. Maybe it was because Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the Goddesses of comedy, sort of stole the show right at the beginning! This Emmy also have some of funny moments in the speeches imho, Meritt Weaver’s shortest speech ever (11 words: “Thanks so much. Thank you so much. I gotta go. Bye.”), Tony Hale and Julia Louis-Dreyfus speeches, and of course the double-entendres filled speech by Michael Douglas for his Liberace win.
Anyway, i still like this year’s Emmy compared to last years’. But everyone who know me know i’m only watching it for the Comedy category. Because a) the non-comedy i watched almost never nominated, or even if they were, they never won (eg: Game of Thrones), b) if the last few years is correct we all know it was gonna be Claire Danes winning again, despite so much win i still have zero interest in Homeland though.
So, without further ado, Continue reading
The award for Primetime television is coming up and the nomination was announced on a week or so ago, on July 18. So Neil Patrick Harris is hosting again for the second time (the 2009 show was fun!). So many things to look forward to in anticipation to the award. I’m actually more excited to see what kind of For Your Consideration Mail packaging design they’re dishing up this year (last year’s New Girl‘s Douchebag Jar was cute and The Big Bang Theory pop-out is just awesome!), although the viral ones already came out a few weeks ago (with Family Guy continued their crude humor by spoofing HBO’s Girls). The Hollywood Reporter’s Emmy Roundtable is always fun to watch as well, just check their channel on youtube!
Loving this line up by the way: Matthew Perry (Go On, my personal favorite Friends), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Fred Armisen (Portlandia, SNL), Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) and Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory and my current favorite comedy actor).
