"donaghy, you play the matador."

Yesterday, much to my surprise while I was eating breakfast, THE EMMY NOMINEES FOR 2009 WERE ANNOUNCED OMFGZ. actually I'm never on top of this shit until it comes out. and then. lo and behold. (which is my phrase of the week)

"30 Rock" is the frontrunner for the comedies, with 22 nominations altogether. AND THAT'S DAMN RIGHT. there's no other show on television I care about as much as this show. it's hilarious. forget "The Office," which seems so stale now (I liked it in high school, then I stopped watching, EVERYBODY BEGAN TO WATCH, I saw an episode a while ago and it was terrible).

proof of why "30 Rock" is probably the most intelligent sitcom to come about in since um forever, barring "Arrested Development" and "Frasier":



Tina Fey, of course, being god (and my doppleganger), was nominated. But my affections are torn this time, seeing as THE BIG S WAS ALSO NOMINATED.

There were a lot of surprises and a lot more nominees this year. "Family Guy" got a nod, but I'm not much of a "Family Guy" fan. More of a "Simpsons" girl.

The always lovely Christina Applegate, star of my late guilty pleasure "Samantha Who," also was nominated in the best actress category. I still don't get why they canceled that, but then again they did cancel "Pushing Daisies."

There's a variety category this year, with "SNL" getting a nomination in that. Um, "SNL" kind of sucks anymore.

In the drama division, AMC's "Mad Men" took the most nods. "Mad Men" looks like such a good, stylish show, and I WISH I COULD REMEMBER TO WATCH IT. it'd probably just make me want to drink martinis and listen to Frank Sinatra (whom I have a deep-seated grudge against). Then, there are the ones for "House MD" and "Dexter" and blah blah blah.

"Grey Gardens" seemed to get a lot of nods for made-for-TV movie (as did some select Lifetime films). "Grey Gardens" should get those awards- it was a damn fine movie, probably Drew Barrymore's best work to date. The real fight there would be between her and Lange, both up for the same award.

"True Blood" was shut-out, interestingly. That's another show I need to see....BUT WAIT I CAN'T BECAUSE MY HBO IS GONE. the tragedies of my existence, I tell you.

well, in the mean time. place your bets and get caught up on summer reruns! The Emmys will air their 61st (has TV even existed that long????) ceremony on September 20th on CBS at 8 p.m.


I WILL BE BACK WITH MUCH MORE FOLLOWING WORK. UGH BASEMENTS IT'S GONNA RAIN TOO :(

factoid: Michael Jackson? big "30 Rock" fan.

  1. 1. a valentine's day episode of 30 rock was on last night, and I was shocked: it was fairly raunchy. my dad wasn't paying attention, then looked up and said, '...dressed as a ninja?' MOST AWKWARD MOMENT EVER COMING UP - 'Uhh...he and his wife do role-playing.' I turned beat red. My dad went back to reading the paper.

    2. you can come watch my HBO any time you want! that I am free! and that you are free! wait, that's almost never. my offer still stands.

    3. nice to have you back, I must say.
