The 2007 Emmys!

Hopefully anything Heroes and Office-related will sweep tomorrow night.

Apparently there's going to be a rap battle between Dwight Schrute and Kanye West, which means I have to watch it even though Ryan "Peace Out" Seacrest is hosting.

I don't understand why "Heroes" is popular. I really don't. It's pure fantasy, and pure fantasy can be done and has been done much better than that.

Obviously you're not a golfer.

I honestly have no idea what that's supposed to mean.

I really hope that the new Battlestar Galactica faces some justice and wins for Outstanding Writing for a Dramatic Series for the incredible and politically-insightful "Occupation"/"Precipice". The series deserves this, especially after being overlooked for other amazing episodes and the best acting on TV! James Callis should have been nominated every single year he's been on the show, but lesser acting from other shows has been nominated instead. They still allow idiots to vote on these things! At least they got "Occupation"/"Precipice" right.

Agreed. It's been performed much better, too. It's a popularity contest. I don't think most of the voters have done their duty and watched the best shows out there.

It's a Lebowski joke that was completely non sequitor. My bad.

But really, I love Heroes because it really is a comic book come to life. The way the characters were set up and developed and how the plot was delivered and woven between characters and their arcs was pure genius. It kept me wanting to see more and satisfied with every episode, which made me give up Lost halfway through Season 2... at least until the DVD hits.

Shows like Galactica and The Wire will never got nominated under the "send one episode, it better be a tearjerker" rule the Emmys have. It's ridiculous.

We can both agree on the awesomeness of The Big Lebowski, except for those annoying hallucination scenes, which always bored me.... Lost's season finale was one of the best episodes the show's ever done, though, even if the first 2/3rds of the season were wasted on the love triangle and really boring backstories, except for the season premiere and any flashbacks to do with Juliet and Ben.

The first hallucination scene wasn't too good, but the second one... oh man, with the super-trippy First Edition song. It's classic.

I did end up seeing the Season 3 finale of Lost with Mama LMP and we both really liked it.

I bet The Sopranos will sweep every category though as a big farewell Emmy blowjob, which is ridiculous. The most deserving actor/actress/show should win, pure and simple.

I hope the Colbert Report wins this year. He's hilarious & has a great team of writers. I'd be happy if Stewart wins, but I think Colbert has earned it this year. I'd hate to see the Tony Bennett one-time special win. I hate when those things get nominated against shows that run nightly or weekly. Unfair

Like Barry Manilow?

Why are Boston Legal or Two and Half Men even nominated for anything? I love Shatner and Ducky but give me a break, these shows are lametastic.

Nice imagery!
I really hope Sopranos wins something other than best writing, though. My baby deserves it!
