    Katie Holmes looks gorgeous and almost like her old self, sans about 15 pounds.

    Best Actress in a Drama goes to (should be Elizabeth Moss, but probably won't be )....... Julianna Margulies. I love her, but really wanted Elizabeth to win.

    Here's the big one. Lead Actor in a Drama. Jon Hamm should win, but he probably won't.

    The Emmy goes to Kyle Chandler! Holy moly! I never thought he'd win!

    Sweet that Minka got to present his award. I've been a fan of his since Homefront, so I'm happy for him. Sad for Jon, but there's always next year!

    And I was just sitting here wondering if anyone else even remembered Homefront, which I thought was wonderful and far too short-lived.

    Also, is it my imagination or does the announcer who is making comments as the winners go up on stage sound a bit like the announcer from Chelsea Lately?

    Finally, am I a terrible person for thinking that when Peter Dinklage got up there, he should have started with, "I'll keep this short..."? I know it's a cheap laugh, but a laugh's a laugh.

    Lots of surprises tonight! I hope that continues and Game of Thrones wins for Best Drama!

    I'll admit I cringed a bit when the presenter (I now can't remember who it was) talked about the winner not forgetting the little people.

    I loved Homefront. I wish they'd release it on DVD!

    ETA: If Idris Elba wins for Luther (and is there to receive the award! ) and Game of Thrones takes Best Drama, it would make my night!

    I think the difference is that it's okay for Peter to make fun of his size, but it's not okay for someone else to point it out.

    I honestly haven't seen a lot of the shows that are winning, but I don't have HBO either, and I seldom have the time to devote to long evenings of PBS.

    Idris didn't win

    But, Downton Abby is doing well so far. Maybe it will pull out a win against Mildred Pierce, although I doubt it.

    Tilden, I highly recommend Downton Abbey, which is on DVD now and Game of Thrones, which isn't yet. Hopefully, season 1 of GOT will be out by Christmas.

    And here comes the In Memorium segment where I will bawl like a baby. Please tell me we won't have to look at these singers any more. This part isn't about them.

    I gotta say, I don't really care for the live music during the memoriam.

    I'm okay with the live music as long as it doesn't overshadow the actual presentation. They blew it a few years ago on the Oscars when they panned around the stage while the singer was performing and you couldn't see the video screen. I think all of the producers of awards shows learned their lesson after the viewers complained.

    I lost it when they showed Andy Whitfield. I wasn't a huge fan or anything, but he was just so young. I loved Elizabeth Taylor, but she lived a nice long life. Andy never fulfilled his promise.
