Those Wacky Emmys!!

I am – Hercules!!

That Garry Shandling is still some kind of funny dude!

Here are the crazy crazy noms. My even more out-of-step comments are in red. Hey now!!

Outstanding Comedy Series

Arrested Development • FOX •
Curb Your Enthusiasm • HBO •
Everybody Loves Raymond • CBS •
Sex And The City • HBO

Most deserving is "Curb Your Enthusiasm," no contest.

Outstanding Drama Series

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation • CBS •
Joan Of Arcadia • CBS •
The Sopranos • HBO •
24 • FOX •
The West Wing • NBC •
It's insane (if not surprising) that "Angel" isn't on this list; it did a better job of closing out the "Buffy" story than "Buffy" did. Of the nominees, I say "24" deserved it this year over "The Sopranos," if only because of the amazing 2004 virus episodes. Everything after Gael got sprayed was gold.

Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series

Chappelle’s Show • Comedy Central •
The Daily Show With Jon Stewart •
Late Night With Conan O’Brien • NBC •
Late Show With David Letterman • CBS •
Saturday Night Live • NBC •
"Conan's" written material is the funniest stuff on the air, but "The Daily Show" is more consistent. Give it to TDS.

Deadwood • Deadwood (Pilot) • HBO •
The Sopranos • Where’s Johnny? • HBO •
The Sopranos • Unidentified Black Males • HBO •
The Sopranos • Long Term Parking • HBO •

The "Hole in the World" episode of "Angel" was far better than any of these, but I'll remember "Long Term Parking" forever.

Frasier • Goodnight, Seattle • NBC •
Scrubs • My Screwup • NBC •
Sex And The City • An American Girl In Paris (Part Deux) • HBO

Whoa! Where's "Curb"? Where's the "Wonderfalls" pilot? Among the nominees, I'll take "Arrested Development."

Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Program

Chappelle’s Show • Comedy Central •
Chris Rock: Never Scared • HBO •
The Daily Show With Jon Stewart • Comedy Central •

"Conan" is absolutely the best written of these.

Brad Garrett as Robert Barone Everybody Loves Raymond • CBS •

Brad Dourif as Doc Cochran Deadwood • HBO •
Michael Imperioli as Christopher Moltisanti The Sopranos • HBO •

    by BirdMnJr

    Herc, seriosuly, quite whining about Angel & Wonderfalls. Yes, there both off the air and yes they are both good shows, but Sopranos, Deadwood, and a slew of the other drama nominees would slaughter Angel in a quality competition. And as for Wonderfalls, Curb & Arrested Development would massacre it in that quality competition. Get over it.

    by FluffyUnbound

    She was cute for about 5 seconds about a century ago, but now she is an annoying bitch. Then again, the people at the Emmys this year seem divided into three groups: slumming movie stars, people I hate, and people whose shows I have never watched even once. That third group grows every year, and it's getting so bad I may have to add a fourth group: people whose shows I have never watched even once and who I can't even name or recognize from a photograph.

    Has anyone seen "Pierre Bernard and his recliner of rage"? He says things like "I got my Angel DVD today except it didn't have the original credits they used in episode 1 they used the new credits introduced in the episode 7." "Bottom line America: I shouldn't have to buy two Angel DVD's to see the original credits." John Stewart my ass.

    by Battousai

    Still don't get Curb

    by pablo2004

    I mean I get the show I just don't understand why everyone is so ga-ga over it. It's amusing but not laugh out loud funny. It has some really annoying qualities too, every stranger Larry meets is going to be insane and every woman on the show is a complete and utter bitch. Arrested Development deserves it EOD.

    I always thought Shandling was a comedian

    by punjeb

    Was it me, or did Shandling do the single worst job of hosting in 57 years? (Yes, I know, this was the 56th annual Emmys, that's my point). His neurotic, laid-back personna seemed more apathetic and smugly amateurish than anything. No disrespect, but ANY in the "In Memorium" segment, or Danny Thomas (from the Bob Hope award) would have done better...then the host would have been dead to go along with the jokes. Sigh, it makes we wish for the glory days of David Letterman hosting! "Oprah. Uma. Uma. Oprah."

    why do we watch these travesties?

    by Dr Farragammo

    wow this was more clueless than usual. Larry David and Curb didn't get anything? (at least nothing that I saw). 24 gets nothing, another mistake. And Grammar gets award for best actor in a comedy series again?!?!??! You have a guy who died, and was probably one of the nicest and funniest sob's in the business, and Larry David one of the best assholes in the biz(and I mean that as a compliment). Now Frazier in it's first 4 years was genuinely funny, but there is obviously somehting political going on there. AND no noms for NIP/TUCK or The SHIELD? I haven't seen RESCUE ME but I have heard lots of good things about it too.What happened to all the nods FX got the past 2 years? Is 6 ft not nominated till next year? I didn't think this season was that great but they normally get a bunch of noms. And the reason I think the DAILY SHOW won all the categories it was in: in any other political climate I think it may not have won, but it's (sadly since it's not even a REAL news show) one of the few shows out there giving a dissenting viewpoint to all the talking points propaganda that prevents us from getting any honest answers out of the news shows. They've stepped up to the plate and that's why they deservedly won. But I am a Conan junkie, and a Chappele junkie too. It would be nice for Dave to get something next year, but his show is one of the greatest hit or miss shows ever: When it's good there's no better, when it's bad it's really juvenile and predictable, and Chappelle's standup ususally blows his show away. And why the hell not get Conan, Chappelle, or Stewart to host? I don't know why they didn't have Conan back last year, but he and the other two I mentioned , would all be great. Shandling is better than most people give credit, but not as a host. And Arrested Development? I watched that show for the 1st 6 eps, being a huge David Cross fan, and wondering what the hell Bateman's been up to, and I wasn't that crazy about it. It didn't suck but nowhere near as funny as it ought to be. At least one angel won, which is good because tommorrow all the right wing hatemongers can get on their horn and go off on how Hollywood loves their fags and AIDS isn't that big a deal and all their other bullshit they poison their minds with . Kind of a surreal monent watching Pacino & Gandolfini shake hands, huh?

    Angel and Wonderfalls rule !

    by DonnieDarko

    The only two shows from last year that deserve something like a reward are Angel and Wonderfalls. If you can just look only a tiny, tiny bit between the lines, you will see that those two shows are superior written and directed than all those other crap that is nominated. But as it is a fact that 95 % of the world population is dumb and full of shit (best examples for thast is Bush with his wannabegodgivenrightstomakewar and that dumbfuck Michael Moore with his faked wanna be documentary films) the good shows were and always will be canceled and get no rewards. And by the way...who gives really a fuck about the Emmys or the Oscars ? The really good films are shown on independent festivals. Films that those grandpas from the Academy are simply not able to understand.

    take this guy seriously? angel for best show and every acting category? uggh

  • How great would it have been amongst all those clips of the final scenes of The Practice, Friends, and Frasier, to see that last scene of Angel with Angel saying "I want to kill the dragon"? It wouldn't even have had to be long (like the other ones were). Just use that one line. I think they could have spared 2 seconds. Then again, watching the rest of the show it was obvious they had no time to spare (just ask Sarah Jessica Parker, or the dude who accepted for Arrested Development). Was it 45 seconds from the time they touched the Emmy?

    this show is going to suck next year

    by NYC

    Sometimes the Emmy's get things very right: Roseanne, Laurie Metcalf(Roseanne), the cast of the Golden Girls, Sela Ward...Sometimes they overlook terribly: John Goodman(Roseanne), Sara Gilbert(Roseanne), Wendie Malick(Just Shoot Me), Sarah Michelle Gellar, James Marsters, Susannah Thompson(Once and Again), Calista Flockhart...It was awesome seeing Cynthia Nixon and Sarah Jessica Parker finally get recognized for their great work. And Mary Louise Parker deserves an award for every perfomance she does. And for her breasts. And how could anyone hate Sarah Jessica? I've loved her for about 20 years and she is about the most adorable, refreshing actress around. Forget the overrated halle berrys and botoxed to death catherine zeta jones of Hollywood. I think SJP is one of the most foxiest and coolest chicks.

    I will never understand anyone's affection for the Buffyverse. Angel over the Sopranos? I just don't get it. Larry David annoys the hell out me even worse than Jason Alexander's fictionalization of him. Sopranos won a shitload of awards, and they deserved it. Best show on television.

    a smorgasboard of comedy shows, a dearth of sitcoms

    by Homer Sexual

    Jon Stewart, Conan O'Brien, Dave Chappelle; all excellent, top-quality shows (Chappelle the best right now, I must say). But the sitcoms? Ugh! Only Curb Your Enthusiasm is any good, despite throwing a bone to Arrested Development. The sitcom is a dying format, and the hourlong drama is struggling. There are a lot of hour-long dramas out there, but most seem to be L&O or CSI related. As long as the "Big" commercially-sponsored networks try to appeal to the masses with blandness, this will continue.

    'Angel' 'Angel' 'Angel' 'Angel' 'Gilmore Girls'

    by Boba Feet

    You have got to be kidding me. Even if these series had an ounce of good writing (the frigging OC, for Bleeding Jesus's sake), no teen drama or fantasy genre work is taken seriously by the Hollywood establishment. The X-files took years to get any kind of recognition at all in Tinseltown, and they were a once in a lifetime show. Take Angel for what it is; a good but cheesy television version of kids playing Vampire: The Masquerade. High drama it's not. And as far as the Gilmore Girls....come one, man. Put the fucking crack pipe down and step away from the remote.

  • I am still laughing at that question about Al Pacino's suits.

    The Buffyverse.

    by CynicKil

    I'm starting to understand people's disinterest in the Buffyverse to a point. The thing is these shows are highly entertaining. The key word is that they're clever. They are written well. But they're not innovative like supporters believe. If David Lynch directed "Angel" it would've been ten times more innvoative then it is and possibly worthy of awards. Not to say that it isn't worthy. If Buffy were written and directed by the same people behind something like say, thirtysomething/my so-called life then it's tone automatically would've been more serious and weighty. THEN we could've had more ground to stand on in defending the show. As it stands yes they were great entertainment and had some great written and performed moments. But the shows themselves rarely took themselves seriously enough for dramas. How could they expect the establishment to?

    the damn orchestra!

    by Dr Farragammo

    ....needs to shut their fucking yappers. They are doing us a disservice for 2 reasons : (1) there are plent of talented people with things to say,either professionally,personally,or politically, and have people to thank, and all it takes is one jackass :Elaine Stritch, to ignore the cues anyway and leave everyone else scrambling thru what should be a great moment in their career. (2) For the annoying,pompous and egomaniacal few that yammer on endlessly about how their shit doesn't in fact stink, but is manna from heaven, we are left without the privilege of seeing themselves hang themselves with their own rope, and therefore learning who the jackasses in the industry are, and having a good chuckle. I, for one, don't need to see the nightly news start at 10 sharp. and by the way : fuck you elaine stritch , you old drunk skank, bill maher deserved that award, but being that the Emmy's were on the same channel that shitcanned him a few years back, there wan't a chance of that happening. The Emmy's are obsolete, as are the Oscars and the Grammy's. I declare the only valid award show is The Golden Globes, because they are the only ones to have a fucking clue about what is going on in the industry of TV & Film. Last nite they show clips of Nip/Tuck, yet they get only 1 nom for writing? and the shield gets nothing?!!?!? i can't get over that.
