So, yeah, the Emmys are tonight, and I figured I'd do some liveblogging or whatever you kids are calling it. Jane Lynch is hosting, and even though I absolutely hate that fruity high school singing show she's on, she's a damn funny lady. Did you see her in Best in Show?
7:00 Right now, I'm watching the dreadful red carpet.
7:04 Joel McHale is looking fine, though.
More to come soon...god these red carpet things are fucking excruciating.
7:17 ZOOEY. God that new show she's on...I'm conflicted. That's all I'll say for now.
I've since grabbed a beer, because I think this will be far more enjoyable for all of us if I get trashed while watching this shit.
7:28 Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are fucking adorable. And Mrs. Chris Martin is PISSED she's not getting screen time. Fuck her.
So I have to say, if I'm rooting for anyone, it's Parks and Recreation. Are you watching this show? Do you know how brilliant it is? Did you know Adam Scott is a sexy son of a bitch? The things I would do to him are practically unchristian....actually they are unchristian.
7:43 Claire Danes is looking gorgeous as always.
Have you seen the new Dior ad with Charlize Theron? Do you find it cool, or terrifying?
7:50 KATE WINSLET
7:51 Juilanne Hough...aka WHO GIVES A SHIT GIVE ME MORE WINSLET
7:53 Kristen Wiig, looking very svelte. Does anyone say "svelte" anymore? Besides me?
OH GOD IT'S ALMOST STARTING
8:02 this musical number is killing me...in a bad way.
I hate the Big Bang Theory almost as much as Glee.
8:04 RON FUCKING SWANSON
Seriously, this is painful. Except the Mad Men skit.
8:06 Two Jane Lynches! This is just like Ringer!
Was that number worthy of a standing ovation?
8:11 so, a comedy montage?
I need another beer, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel are on. Let's see if they laugh at their own unfunny jokes.
Oh boy! First category!
Julie Bowen won for best supporting actress for Modern Family. She's adorable.
Seriously, when is this shit over? Julianna Marguiles makes me want to kill myself.
supporting actor in a comedy...
goes to Ty Burell from Modern Family. Are they setting a trend? DO I GIVE A SHIT
god that acceptance speech was awful
8:23 Commercial report: I love Dunkin Donuts. Pumpkin Spice iced coffee. Vanilla cream-filled donuts. Cause I can't say no to anything filled with cream. (ya hear that fellas???)
8:27 I left my chapstick upstairs. Frowny face.
What is this category? Oh, directing!
*runs upstairs to get said chapstick*
8:30 Zooey's adorable line-read

Fuck no. That scary-looking guy from Big Gang Bang Theorem(?) won.
I'm sorry if you're not watching this. I can't even describe it.Suffice to say the nominees are all up on stage.
Be fortunate you cannot hear my screams of dismay.
Mike and Molly....really.
Not Amy, not Tina, not Edie or Martha or Laura.....I'M DYING INSIDE FOR AMY
Hey, Olive Garden is bringing back the never-ending-morbid-obesity pasta bowl! FUCK YEAH
8:55 this Office skit is kinda funny
except for Kim kardashsisiasasadn
Oh boy variety/reality....I'll be back later...more booze required.
Seriously, I can't give one solitary shit for this category.
Except Project Runway.
I've been eating these delicious cookies, Petie Ecolier? They are like shortbread cookies with chocolate Dutch boys on them? I like eating Dutch boys.
Oh shit, here's that Dior ad again! If I could find a link for it, I would. Till then, tough shit.
9:15 A Lonley Island megamix
Wow, best directing for a reality/variety show goes to WHO THE FUCK CARES BRING ME THE DICK OF JOHN HAMMMMMMM
There's this announcer guy who says something right after they announce the winner, and he's so amazingly annoying.
Commercial Report: LOL @ the trailer for Real Steel (aka Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots: The Shitty Movie No One Asked For).
9:26 God, I want the Emmytunes to die.
OH HERE WE GO
Has anyone ever watched Friday Night Lights?
I don't think it would be as bad as Glee, per se, but I care about high school football as much as I care about pandering karaoke sung by teens. So yeah. Fuck that show.
Best supporting actress goes to that one actress who was in every tv show you watched last season.
She totally fell up the stairs by the way.

9:44 I think this is almost over...isn't it?
PETER DINKLAGE JUST WON FOR BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
I just got a boner.
He just thanked his dog-sitter. So cute.
Commercial Report: Will I watch that new Spielberg-produced dinosaur tv show? Terra Nova? Terrible Novel? Listen, I won't lie to you, since I feel we've become so close. Yes. Yes I will watch it. And cry. And laugh. And cry.
There is a car outside my window with it's hazard lights on. It makes me anxious.
9:51 Is there anyone who wouldn't fuck Anderson Cooper?
I need to get laid.
Update! Jane Lynch is still wonderful.
Let's go ladies! Lead actress!
Oh great, Marguiles won. We'll never hear the end of it now. She makes me want to drink myself dumb.
I don't think I've ever watched a show on CBS. Certainly not gonna start now.
Marguiles to her husband: "I love being your good wife."
Me: vomit barf puke
Lead actor goes to whatshisface from that Friday Football Circlejerk
9:58 it's not over yet, is it? Did I just waste three hours of my life? No, no, this is worth it. Right? Yeah. Totally worth it.
Seriously, LL Cool J is on and I don't even have a witty comment for him.
