EMMY: Egregious Misses Mark Year

I have made no secret of my love for The Americans on FX.

I lobbied for viewers upon its debut.

I celebrated its second season pickup and increased episode order.

And now I’m gonna whine on the show’s behalf —

Bitch, moan and complain.

Because The Americans did not receive Emmy nominations for Best Drama Series, Best Actor or Best Actress…and my brain simply cannot wrap itself around this egregious snub.

EGREGIOUS

Kudos to my Upper West Side neighbor Margo Martindale, who did receive a Best Guest Actress nod for her role as a KGB agent.  She deserved it.  She’s amazing.  Everyone on the show is…

And I burn at the injustice.

Less is so much more

I don’t have that many walls in my New York City apartment, but I am willing to make room for these beauties.

This set of minimalist posters — a tribute to the films of Pixar — was created by Wonchan Lee, an Australian designer.

I love the color palette, and the way Lee was able to reference each film with simple yet brilliant icons.

Can you imagine his take on this year’s nine Oscar-nominated films? Or the TV series nominated for Emmy awards? I mean, what would a poster for Downton Abbey look like from Lee’s point of view?

I’d buy that poster. I’d buy these posters.

I need some more walls.

CONGRATS TOM BERGERON!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So psyched that you won the Emmy for ‘Best Reality Show Host’ tonight for Dancing with the Stars. 

Finally.  So very deserved.

But don’t celebrate too hard.  The season premiere of DWTS All-Stars is tomorrow night!

Oh, I’ll be there.

Jolly good show

I managed pretty well…until today.

Hadn’t thought about it much. Hadn’t talked about it at all, unless a friend brought it up, and I figured then I had permission. But now?

The gloves are off.

The Emmy nominations were announced. And even though Downton Abbey has been moved into the Drama category — and has to compete with some pretty heavy hitters —

The Brits got ‘er dun.

Outstanding Drama. Outstanding Actress in a Drama, Michelle Dockery. Outstanding Actor in a Drama, Hugh Bonneville. Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama, Brendan Coyle. Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama, Maggie Smith AND Joanne Froggatt.

Now we just have to wait and see how they do in the head-to-head competition. Actually, I’m not sure I can wait. I may need to watch the first two seasons.

Again.

Yep Knope

Modern Family and Melissa McCarthy may have taken home the Emmys this year, but my money’s on her in 2012.

This is one campaign I hope never ends.  (Sorry, Ben.)

Do you watch Parks and Recreation?  No?? Well, good Lord, man — start!  It’s one of the funniest things on TV.

Here’s a sample quote from last night’s show:

Waiter: Would you like any wine to start?
Leslie: Yes, and I’m gonna be direct and honest with you.  I would like a glass of red wine and I’ll take the cheapest one you have because I can’t tell the difference.

Woman after my own heart.

Vote Knope!

Broom clean

A friend of mine was doing a bit of spring cleaning yesterday.  She even posted pics on Facebook so we could choose from piles of ‘giveaway items’ that were forming in her apartment.

Of course, it’s not really spring.

But I understood her ‘urge to purge.’  I too was cleaning closets yesterday in preparation for…

The fall television season

Yesterday was the perfect day to do it, too.  The Emmy Awards were last night, so I  could put the previous TV season to bed.  I was thrilled with some winners, and sad for some folks who were overlooked yet again (Steve Carell).

Then I shook it off and set the DVR for this week’s season premieres of the new and returning fall shows.

It’s a clean start. It’s hopeful.  It’s new.

And it should be almost a week before the networks start cleaning house.
