Well the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are playing in America right now (I can watch a delayed coverage tonight on Prime at 9:35) and for the first time since I’v gotten into television and have followed this award show since 2004 (when Arrested Development won Best Comedy Series) I’m not really stoked. What with 30 Rock’s Fourth Season being mediocre, and fuckin Glee dominating the nominations how could I.
After three seasons of comedy gold, winning three straight times in a row, and each time deserving it, 30 Rock’s fourth season was quite disappointing, with a good episode here and there, but then a mediocre or really silly and too bizarre one in between. I don’t think it deserves to win a fourth time.
Curb Your Enthusiasm’s season seven was another home run, being nominated best comedy series and lead for Larry David, but unfortunatly David was robbed, not by the likes of Alec Baldwin, nor Steve Carell or Tony Shaloub, but by mother fucking Jim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory. Come on. This doesn’t boad well for it’s chances for comedy series, which I never thought it would get anyway.
The Office Season Six was one of the show’s funniest seasons yet, but that show has had it’s glory in the sun and it probably will get nothing tonight.
How I Met Your Mother’s Fifth Season I’v only just started to watch as it’s being shown on C4 now, and while it looks funny, it doesn’t look like it’s gonna be as good as season four. Neill Patrick Harris has been nominated once more for Best Supporting Actor as Barney Stinson.
The only other shows I like but haven’t watched in awhile but need to get back into are Dexter, and Monk and should get into Breaking Bad. If these shows win anything I’d be happy, but if Glee wins everything including comedy series I’ll be pissed. Just give Jane Lynch best supporting actress and be done with it. But if Modern Family wins over it Itll be better. I’v seen a few episodes or so and it looks pretty good.
I’ll know in a few hours or less…
