Emmys 2015: Stay home next time, Frances McDormand

This being the internet, much has already been said about last night’s Emmy awards telecast. Andy Samberg was fine, bordering on good. He seemed to be having fun and there were very few moments where I felt myself getting nervous for him. Game of Thrones won most of the drama awards, which, while not for... Read more »

This is my 67th Primetime Emmy Awards reaction post

This is my 67th Primetime Emmy Awards reaction post
I missed hearing the nominations LIVE! this morning because I was working on my fitness (humblebrag). But as I opened up the internet to see who was recognized and who got snubbed, I kept thinking, “Eh. There are like three shows I care about — Veep, Silicon Valley, Kimmy Schmidt, OK, maybe a few more... Read more »

65th Primetime Emmy Awards Predictions and Fantasies

65th Primetime Emmy Awards Predictions and Fantasies
The Emmy Awards nominations will be announced tomorrow morning. Normally I don’t get all worked up about them because the same shows and people are usually nominated every year.

Emmypalooza 2010 - Emmy Predictions

      The 2010 Emmy Awards telecast airs Sunday, August 29th on NBC.  I’ll be Tweetering my way through the telecast, groaning every time Glee wins an award and taking power naps through the Mini-Series and Made-For-TV Movie categories (Yawn!

EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) - Who Will Be the Next to Win One

Her acting didn't win her the Oscar, her singing did.  But who cares, she has the O and she's not giving it back.  Now all she needs to do is bring her giant set of pipes to the boards of Broadway.  And then, in her advanced age, play a sage old judge on "Law & Order: Anarchy" in 2043.
The EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony quadfecta) is the most prestigious badge of honor available to anyone in the performance industry (at least according to Tracy Jordan it is).  There have been very few EGOT award winners since the history of time.  The list includes Rita Moreno, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols, and Whoopi Goldberg....
