STUFF I WROTE DOWN AS I WAS WATCHING THE EMMYS AND ALSO WRITING A PIECE OF A PULP ADVENTURE WHILE DOWNING SOME HALO 3-BRANDED MOUNTAIN DEW

Seacrest DSV. Ugh. Just getting that out of the way now.

Apparently Hugh Laurie was in consideration to host but was nixed because it would confuse the viewers. I love it when people just assume we're all stupid. I hope to be typing his name again before the end of this post, but honestly...I doubt it.

However, I will refrain from critique of the broadcast and just stick to the winners, the not-winners, and the odd comment. Every newspaper in the country will cover that for me, I'm sure.

O'Quinn takes it home. Well-deserved. He's been a favorite since his Peter Watts days. Whatever one's opinions on the third year of Lost, one cannot deny that Locke had the good stuff and Terry O'Quinn nailed it. I regret not at all my momentary geeking out upon meeting him at the Lost DVD premiere lo those many, many moons ago. Let's have a picture from that, shall we?

And as much as I worship the Shatner, he's got statues already.

Then O'Quinn gave props to his castmates in the form of Michael Emerson and then I remembered where I'd heard that name before. The main character in Army of Me is/was Michael Emerson. Find/Change All.

We are pleased by the Heigl's win for Supporting Actress in a Drama.

While we're not big on the Grey's Anatomy, the Heigl has long held a place on the List of Unattainable Crushes. And she got the video dump for her dirty (no audio) mouth. We admire that in a girl.

You know, I will say that my favorite part of every Emmy broadcast going far back has been the montages of the writers of the late night shows.

Roots. Man, you just can't put anything on for eight consecutive nights and expect people to watch it now.

I like hearing Leslie Caron say "Galactica." I really would have liked to hear her say it twice (directing), but it's gonna be a Sopranos year and we know it. Same way I knew I wasn't going to hear it for writing. David Chase wins.

Unrelated the Emmys: I'm thinking I should round up some actors and make radio/podcast dramas of these pulp stories. Are you an actor (or even not much of an actor) in SoCal. Wanna have some pizza or something and do a little voice-over? Lemme know. Wait, better yet...ultra-low budget film...black and white and shot on a $129 camera in a day (thanks to Bill for the heads up on those) and maybe just some looping to clean up...but not much...fast, down and dirty. Lemme know. Can you do a German accent?

Lewis Black tellin' like it is right to the networks on the only thing you can be sure they're paying attention to. Can the onscreen clutter and fix the warp-speed, micro-sized end credits. Preach it! Of course teh suits approved it and they're gonna do what they want, so...

Writing in a Comedy Series. And...it's...Greg Daniels. While not my Stamatina, at least one person from Sublime Primetime won, so it doesn't get jinxed and nobody comes next year.

Now, I like James Spader. He's delightfully creepy, but...how did he win this year? I thought it was a Sopranos year.

30 Rock. can I get a "FUCK, YEAH!" I've had those DVD's playing an insane amount in the last week and a half. I do not get tired of it. Good background stuff in-between rewatching Mad Mens.

Best drama. Yeah. Sopranos year.

And reaching back to the Creative Arts awards and South Park's . I particularly enjoyed this year's episodes. Especially (and because I've my own geeky proclivities) "Make Love, Not Warcraft." Good on ya, Matt and Trey. Sorry, Selman. Also, possibly the first Emmy win for something using machinima? Someone go look that up.

kk.

G'nite.
