AwardTalk: 2013 Primetime Emmy

E03So 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

2013 Primetime Emmy: Nomination

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).

Black Mirror (2011-ongoing)

Black Mirror is a British television mini series from Channel 4, created by Charlie Brooker. Each season consists of 3 episodes, exploring various themes with a discomforting, techno-paranoia twist to it. Think of adult version of Roald Dahl stories with Twilight Zone twists set in a dystopian version of the twitter-age. It also reminds me of Serial Experiments Lain (シリアルエクスペリメンツレイン), a 1998 Japanese anime series that deals with similar issue concerning human networks, identity, and communication through a philosophical approach.

KaramelKinema: The New, The Now, The End of TV 2013-2014

I love my TV series, i almost never watch local indonesian channel because all we have are cheesy soap that lacks of content whatsoever. Nevertheless, i watch a heck load of american and british series. Started out with my undying love for sitcom (started out by Friends, which i have watched more than what is healthy for over 10 years now and i can quote the one-liner on a whim, ba-dum-pum-pshhh!). I still love my sitcoms, but also enjoy police procedural and detective stuff too. So June always marks the transition of television program for me. usually filled with enrage rants when i found out the show i like being cancelled (i especially hate ABC for that) and found out new shows to watch. So here’s what we’ll have in the 2013-2014 period.
