Warning! Keep Back From This Blog!

One last picture from my trip to Governor’s Island yesterday.  So, The Emmys.  

Best moments:  Laura Linney’s comment calling the founding fathers community organizers. Tommy Smothers’s speech.  Paul Giamatti’s flusteredness.  Oh and Ricky Gervais, Ricky Gervais, Ricky Gervais.  As many people have already suggested, he should host next year.  And forever

Not so good moments:  Cutting off the director (writer?) of John Adams.  The opening. Danny Strong not winning for writing.  A certain actresses arms (I feel catty enough saying it, I can’t say who, but if you were watching you know who I’m talking about).  Josh Groban.

  1. did the actress used to have a cat meow at the end of her show?? If so I agree – keep to turtlenecks.

  2. What the heck was that? I was at a loss to figure it out.
    The whole show was a mess, except for Ricky.
    Did you see “Ghost Town”?
    I was expected it to be predictable and hokey, but he was so good it transcended every predictable moment. It was touching, too.

  3. Yes Karen, that was the one. The most ghastly arms I have ever seen.

    Ellen, I haven’t seen Ghost Town, but I’m glad to hear you say that, because so far I’ve not heard good things about it.

  4. Well, Rotten Tomatoes had an 87% fresh rating from critics. Yes, most of the beats are predictable, but there were some great performances. I’m a pretty tough critic, too.
