wow,
Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad
this show is really good and Bryan is the heart of it.

Yes, it was a good field

but, this guy was more worthy than Spader or Jon Hamm
and I am a big Mad Man fan.

that's it? Barely 3 pages of posts?

Glad Mad Men won Best Drama
WTG Tina Fey
The Daily Show & Stephen Colbert

I love when they announce the nominees for best writing in a comedy series - fave part every year. Also enjoyed Ricky Gervais / Steve Carell.


And Josh Groban - that was cool!

I tried to watch it, I got bored. The Desperate Housewives disturbed me with the way they all looked so frozen. I don't get Jeremy Piven, I've never seen Entourage but is he really that great? He is a prick but a sexy one imo, but definitely sexy only from a distance-when you get up close and get to know him my sense is that it's most definitely an ew. I've never seen 30 Rock or many of the other shows. Michael Emerson ripped off again, at least he won once for The Practice.

Where was Spader, I never saw Spader Julia Louis Dreyfuss looked gorgeous, I LOVED the color of her dress. I've always thought she's beautiful.

Ricky Gervais/Steve Carell
Josh Groban

I'm curious about 30 Rock too now.

Too bad, The Office didn't win anything.

30 Rock is an excellent show, I highly recommend it. Although The Office is still number 1 for me, 30 Rock is a close number 2. The characters are amazing, and it's laugh out loud funny. I'm glad it's being recognized.

Mrs S, I agree with both the boredom - the show kind of lost me after the first hour, and I was really looking forward to it! - and with the Michael Emerson comment. That's the award that I cared most about all night. He knocked it out of the park last season, and he really deserved it.

I am so happy for "Mad Men" Also, Don Rickles is hilarious. He should've been the host last night.

I love that 30 Rock won so many awards!

Jeremy Piven always looks so skeezy to me. I've never seen the show, but I don't care. I was rooting for anyone but him to win. The guy just bugs me.

Ricky Gervais = awesome.

The reality hosts? Lamest shit EVER. I don't want anyone ever to bitch about anyone's hosting abilities any more for any award show. Hands down, this will always be the worst, and anything will be better than this.

The problem I have with Piven is that I get the sense the character he plays in Entourage is pretty much who he really is.

I don't disagree, the same could be said for Alec Baldwin, if you have seen him interviewed on 60 minutes, etc. also, Tracy on 30 Rock is great, too.
again he is playing close to home.

Sometimes great acting is achieved by great casting?

I have not watched any of Entourage this season, it seems like I don't miss it.

But, when I start up on it with OnDemand, I always enjoy it. And Priven is at the center of that. The character is somewhat obnoxious, I think that may be why so many people don't like him.

I agree on all counts. I enjoy Piven on the show--but that's because he's supposed to be a character. I wouldn't enjoy that guy in real life, you know? That's all I meant. I watch Entourage when I'm waiting for the next thing to come on. But I don't pay much attention to it.

i know, i know.. they were up for only one award last tho.. that show has to be the most underrated show out there.. It had such spectacular writing and acting on that show... it bums me out that it didn't get recognized (over the few years it was on) for being such a amazing show.

Yes, I concur again. Especially after hearing what an asshole he was at the U2 show in Hawaii, thinking he was entitled to be on the rail or closed up because of his celebrity
