Let’s face it, viewers don’t tune into the Emmy Awards to see who takes home the Outstanding Sound Editing For Nonfiction Programming (Single Or Multi-Camera) award. We tend to want drama, surprises, and a few wardrobe mishaps or unexpected knock-it-out of the parks.
A few random thoughts:
-Fashion. Next to the Oscars, is there a bigger fashion show that takes place during the year? Sofia Vergara. Julianna Margulies. Mariska Hargitay. Connie Britton. Dame Judi Dench. Christina Hendricks. I can’t wait to see them all. I love it all the more that most of these women are over 35 and a few of them wear something higher than a size 2.
-Jon Hamm is very very very pretty and I hope to see a LOT of him. Sigh…
-Everyone is wondering what sort of acceptance speech Conan O’Brien will give if he wins for Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series.
–Will this be the Year of the Newbies, e.g., “Glee” and “Modern Family” or will the academy show respect to the veterans and also reward those that have gone to TV heaven such as “Lost”?
-How will Jimmy Fallon handle hosting duties? There have been news reports hyping that the show will go digital this year, incorporating Facebook and Twitter. Um. Not sure what to think about that.
-Two of my favorite people George Clooney and Betty White will be there. And guess, who else — Kate Gosselin! Go Kate. Can’t wait to see you!
So are you watching all or part of the show? Who are you rooting for and/or against? Share your thoughts.
