You Done Raised Me Up

I am probably a horrible pop culture blogger for not watching the Emmys last night. I spent the early part of the evening getting drunk while the Steelers lost, so I totally forgot that they were on. Then, when my roommates got home, we watched some of the DVD set of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which might be my new favorite show. If you don't have a PC stick jammed up your rear, you should really check it out.

Anyway, I heard that Tina Fey took home the best comedy actress award for 30 Rock, which is well-deserved, and that Jeremy Piven won a supporting actor award for his portrayal of Ari, the sleazy agent on Entourage. I don't know how it's considered "supporting," when he and Kevin Dillon totally carry that show. Seriously, does anyone tune in to see poor little Vince (Adrien Grenier) whine about his charmed life? God, I want to punch that guy. He looks like something that fell out of Greg Brady's ass.

All of the big winners can be found here.

And thanks to Beth for alerting me to Josh Groban's hilarious medley of TV theme songs.



Maybe the academy should get Josh to host next year. I heard the hosts really stunk up the place.

Didn't watch them either. Figured the best parts would be posted and here it is.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE "It's Always Sunny.." It's so wrong and yet it's so worth it.

I never watch the award shows. Why bother when you can read the blow-by-blow in the PopEye the next day... er, or in the paper ;-)

Beth said...

Man, I love "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" — the humor is as weird as I am.

I never watch the Emmys, but I got sucked in last night ... SUCK being the operative word.

Oh it was on....I don't care anymore

I was kinda impressed with the Josh Groban thing. It sucked a billion times less than I expected.

Joshaleh - who knew? Funny - intentional or not.

I have not watched the Emmy's in I can't tell you how many years. The last one I can pinpoint for certain is September 1999 and I was in Hawaii. I did not want to watch them but my friend was adamant that we did.

Probably my lack of memory of that event is due to me raiding the mini-bar in a petualant, $10-a-bottle-beer be damned sort of way.

And I must get me some It's Always Sunny on netflix, sounds fucking fabby and totally not pc, just up my alley.

How many pop culture heads are also football heads?
Your range continues to amaze and amuse.

Dear Beckeye:

So sorry that we had to hand your Steelers a loss.

Sincerely,

Hahahahaha...thank you for the laugh.

I watched it for you Beckeye. Let me give you my review, which you are welcome to use:

Last nights Emmys sucked ass!

Next to Josh Groban, the only funny thing was Don Rickles who proved he is still 10 times better than any of the shitty banter these people come up with.

Who writes that crap dialogue for the Emmys? Don't they have a budget for a REAL host? They were worse than lame. That's 3 hours of my life that I can never recover....

Entertainment Tonight is more entertaining (but just barely)...

I tuned in for eight seconds, saw Josh Groban singing, and knew this ceremony didn't give one tiny damn about me and my musical tastes, so I watched four more hours of football instead.

I will check out its always sunny...


Do you watch Heroes?

Brian Griffin said...

Nothing can beat my number last year. Well except maybe Lilly Allen hosting.

Alice said...

I know, I'm a bad person because I don't watch the Emmys, the Oscars, the VMA's, the Grammys, the Cleos or the Golden Globes.

Dale said...

'fell out of Greg Brady's ass'? Hahahahahaha. I watched a bit of the show on pvr and it was pretty effing boring.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
