Well, won’t you be shocked to know that despite being gifted with extraordinary taste and timeless beauty, my Emmy predictions were slightly OFF last night.
Don’t you fret-we won’t review ALL of them. I have too many other brilliant things to do today, like balance my checkbook and post pithy sentences to Twitter.
So here we go.
Angela Chase Claire Danes picked up her second consecutive Emmy for her role as Carrie Mathison on Homeland.
I don’t even watch Scandal but everyone knows that this was Kerry Washington’s award to win. Scandal, after all, is pretty much the only broadcast network drama that gets any love and respect from the cable-watching elite. Next year maybe?
Jeff Daniels beat out Bryan Cranston for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama
Really, Academy? REALLY??? Don’t get me wrong. I think Jeff Daniels is a terrific actor. But, ugh, The Newsroom is insufferable. I caught a few episodes of the first season and just couldn’t get over how smug it is. I couldn’t even hate watch it (and this is someone who has seen every episode of Girls.).
Maybe this Emmy is a consolation prize for Jeff not winning a People’s Choice Award for his performance in Arachnophobia. Oh, who am I kidding. It should have been an Oscar,
Bobby Cannavale is an excellent psycho
Bobby won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor a Drama among a field of amazing candidates. This was a tough category because everyone is off the charts good in their roles-Jonathan Banks and Aaron Paul in Breaking Bad, Peter Dinklage in Game of Thrones, Carson in Downton Abbey, Inigo Montoya in Homeland (which I famously, according to me, don’t watch).
I didn’t end up finishing the third season of Boardwalk Empire, but I intend to go back because I’ve heard it was great. And it’s nice to see Bobby win-he’s one of those solid New York actors who’s in everything filmed in the city.
All right, stay tuned for more brilliant analysis later in the day!
