    Re: 2013 Emmy Awards - CBS

    I was out of town and then on the phone once I got home, so I just no remembered the Emmys were on, darnit!

    I looked at the list of winners and pretty much none of my picks have won. Really though, when Tatiana Maslany didn't get a Best Actress nom for Orphan Black, the Emmy voters lost all credibility with me.

    Happy that Jeff Daniels won. Was it the best performance? Not sure. I DO like it when the wealth gets spread around though. Keeps it interesting.

    I'm watching, even though I don't watch half of the shows on cable that are nominated. I don't watch Veep nor do I watch The Big Bang Theory but it seems like year after year Julia Louis Dreyfuss or Jim Parsons win. Maybe they are deserving, but wasn't this Jim's 3rd straight win? Same for Claire Danes of Homeland. Again, I don't watch any of these shows so perhaps they were the most deserving. Jeff Daniels was funny in his acceptance speech about the AARP Best Actor over 50 award for the Squid and The Whale.

    I thought some of the bits were funny. I enjoy NPH as host. Who knew Nathan Fillion could sing? And seeing Bob Newhart is a treat.
    Carrie's version of Yesterday was a yawn, and I like Carrie.

    I Sir Elton. He's still got it.

    Oh, and I am enjoying the tributes to the actors who died this year. I read that Jack Klugman's son was upset that there would not be a tribute to his dad. It's tragic that Cory Monteith died so young, but really, what body of work has he left behind to warrant a tribute over someone like Jack Klugman ?

    Okay, it's not just me, then? And I adore Tina Fey, but the show? Never got its appeal. But then again I don't like The Office and everyone else I know loved that show.

    Same here. Maybe two or three of the people I've chosen have won. Sheesh! The Emmy's have become hard to predict. Bah! And year by year I hope that they remove the applause from the memorial.
