In other news, we watched the Emmys tonight. She came over and watched them with Brian and me, so I guess that was actually a pretty decent opening.
Here are some of the pros and cons of the evening, assuming that A, you didn't watch it or B, you give a crap what I have to say about it.
- Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester from Glee if you are stupid enough not to know her) hosted and she was phenomenal! I sure do love that lesbian! Her opening musical number featuring lots of stars from popular TV shows was very funny, as was her bit as a Jersey housewife. And I disagree with the characters from The Big Bang Theory because I would LOVE IT if spontaneous musical numbers passed through my apartment!
- Apart from Glee, my favorite television show is Modern Family and I was very happy that both Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell won for their roles as Claire and Phil Dunphy! Oh, and Ty's speech was very funny! I'm also happy to say that Modern Family took home an award for Best Direction, Best Writing and for the second year in a row they've won Outstanding Comedy Series!
- The Emmytones (a group of actors who sang little doo-wop songs) were pretty cute. But I really loved the performance by The Lonely Island featuring Michael Bolton and Akon! So hilarious, especially when they started grinding on poor William H. Macy!
- Matt LeBlanc (of Friends fame) has gray hair now. I didn't know this. He looks really good with gray hair!
- The nominees for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, starting with Amy Poehler, all ran up on the stage when their names were called... and it had all of us laughing. Melissa McCarthy (who I love most for her role in the movie Bridesmaids, although she was nominated for her TV show Mike and Molly) won and I was very happy about it! They gave her flowers and a crown just like she won Miss America or something. Even backstage that woman would not take off her crown!
- Although I've never seen Boardwalk Empire or Mildred Pierce, I was happy that Martin Scorsese and Kate Winslet won awards... mostly because they are awesome and deserve it. And did Kate Winslet look sexy tonight or what? Loved that red dress!
- Some dresses were less than spectacular tonight. Let's not lie. Gwyneth Paltrow, Katie Holmes, Drew Barrymore, Amy Poehler and even Julianna Margulies wore some pretty ridiculous dresses. I thought Amy Poehler was going scuba diving and Gywneth Paltrow was suddenly a belly dancer...
- Sofia Vergara's new hair color. What was she thinking?
- Charlie Sheen. SHUT UP ALREADY!
