Of course not. It started to fall the other week after Miley Cyrus twerked in live TV.
No, Elvis Presley was the beginning of the downfall of Western civilization.
I really, really wish they would mute the audience during the In Memoriams.
I know he didn't write it. And of course it is a ludicrous opinion, but many people at that time thought rock and roll was evil and the Devil's music. My point being, and maybe I did not say it well, was that of the 73 million viewers, maybe one-third liked what they saw. So that's something like 10% of the population. This was not some national turning point, it's a historical cliche with no basis in fact. Even among people who liked rock and roll, they didn't all like the Beatles and many hated them
Whether it's myth or not, I'm not sure that makes him an idiot for quoting what a LOT of people believe.
Oh my gosh, Michael Douglas's acceptance for "Behind the Candelabra" was-- I can't even -- did he really say that?
That Audi commercial with Claire Danes -- I can't even -- what the heck?
that gets a big hand from me
Modern Family again? Are a lot of these awards (like Jeff Daniels and this one) because the top choices split votes?
Yeah,you thought also. It's not the first time that has happened.
Hmmmm, I thought it started in 1492.
I assume Breaking Bad will be eligible again next year, at least for season 5B. I was pulling for Jonathan Banks last night.
Too many "In Memoriams" last night. The kid from Glee gets "equal death billing" to James ***** Gandolfini? Seriously?
Didn't see the show, but there's also the people who were not included. Jack Klugman for example.
And Larry Hagman!
And Charles Durning.
The still did a montage that included the three listed above; however, one could (should) argue all three were more impactful on TV than Monteith.
Agree, but they have to get Gen Y (or whatever they call self absorbed teens and 20 somethings these days). Think any of them have heard of Jack Klugman or Charles Durning? Of course I never heard of Monteith until they said which character he played on Glee, which I've seen a couple of times.
All in all, I think the Emmys were more boring than usual, and that says something. I'm not an awards show person, but wife was watching and I was doing other things, so it was on. Usually I only watch the Oscars.
I was really glad for MF, and I'm glad broadcast TV can still win something. Was hoping GoT would win best drama, but I knew better. That show is too "out there" to actually win.
To me the best moment was the woman who won supporting actress for Nurse Jackie. I don't think she had ANY idea she was going to win
While I like The Newsroom a WHOLE LOT better than Breaking Bad and a couple of others, Jeff Daniels did not deserve best actor. In fact, I thought he wasn't even as good as last year, and was terrible playing a love interest.
Oh, and the one true robbery was best actress because the best actress this season wasn't even nominated. Tatiana Maslany for Orphan Black. In fact, I think Keri Russell in The Americans was better than any of the ones nominated too.
Oh, and did we need the "song in the middle of the show" or whatever it was called? I went and prepared my lunch for today while that was on.
I really didn't like the way they interspersed the eulogies throughout the show. I thought the people who spoke said really nice things. But with the way the show played out reminded me of the Jerry Lewis Telethon, where they would alternate between something fun and entertaining then have some part to pull at your heart strings.
I wonder if this the first time that someone won an award for a show that is broadcasting AT THE SAME time as the Award Show.
