Swing and a miss. When will the Emmys listen?
Entertainment Weekly had an article a couple of weeks ago entitled "For Your Consideration". The three actors being lauded were Lauren Graham, Zach Braff and Kristen Bell.
Zach Braff was the only one nominated and at that, he has a snowball's chance of winning with Ray Romano nominated on his swan season. Remember Friends? When they left, they won all awards possible. Those that they didn't win went to the other show, Frasier, who was also in their swan season.
I would've not been upset if the actresses nominated in the Actress on a Lead Role were deserving. Come on. 80% of the Desperate Housewives don't deserve it. Quelle Horreur that Eva Longoria (slut) and Nicolette Sheridan (wrinkles) were not nominated! You know what? They don't deserve it.
Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore has been one of the greatest characters ever to grace the small screen TV. For five years she has remained in character, human, smart and not slutty! How's that for a DH comparison?
As for Kristen Bell, she is another actress that should've not been overlooked. She has style and grace that cannot be manufactured. For her sake, I hope the new VM season would make her a strong contender.
With that being said, I should stop watching these shows since they're apparently rigged.
I mean, cable has their own award show. So why is HBO and Showtime competing in the Emmys? Isn't that double dipping?
Maybe I should just be glad that SATC is done.
