Emmy Awards 2010: Live Blog
Update: I lost interest after the last update. When I heard the incredibly depressing song by Jewel, I turned off the TV. Hope I didn't miss anything good.
Update: 7:33 pm: The first upset: Kyra Sedgwick (Closer) beats Julianna Margulies for Best Actress in a drama. Another good skit: the "Year in Variety" with musical acts, Colbert, and Conan. Jimmy's energy is holding.
Update: 7:04 pm: Hooray! Aaron Paul, the nominee I was rooting for the most tonight, just won Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Breaking Bad. He was incredible this season as was the show. And Bryan Cranston just won again for best lead actor for the show. I'm so glad to see this show get its due.
Another great call: Archie Punjabe for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for The Good Wife. This bodes well for Julianna Margulies. The Good Wife started weak, but ended up being a really strong show.
Update: 6:47 pm: Glad to see Edie Falco win for Nurse Jackie, although Season 1 was better than Season 2. She is very good. I also liked the reality skit, especially Snooki taking Obama to task for the tanning tax. Top Chef wins. What's with all the Oprah commercials with her shrieking? Does she really do that on her show? [More...]
Update: 6:06pm: Opening number with Jimmy playing the Boss on Born to Run a la Glee was great. Tina Fey was also terrific. I'm not as crazy about his slow number, although the jab at NBC for Conan was good. (I'm only going to update highlights and some winners.)
