Adorable Kids Reenact Emmy Nominated TV Shows

Adorable Kids Reenact Emmy Nominated TV Shows
"Hey Jesse, Wanna Cook Crystal Meth?"

It’s that time again! Awards season is upon us, and what better way to remind us that we’re still irrelevant for not having watched “Breaking Bad” than by continuing to nominate it for things, am I right? Anyway…

Tons of great TV shows are up for awards this year, including some of The Frisky’s personal favorites, “Orange Is The New Black,” “Modern Family,” “American Horror Story: Coven,” “Game of Thrones” & more. To give us a sneak peek at what’s to come, the cute kids who acted out the Oscar Best Picture nominees are back to make us want to steal them give the same treatment to this year’s EMMY nominated TV shows, including “Game Of Thrones,” “True Detective,” “House Of Cards,” “Mad Men,” “Downton Abbey,” and (surprise, surpass) “Breaking Bad.” Check out the video above for your daily dose of smiles, and don’t forget to tune in to The EMMY Awards live on NBC this Monday, August 25th, at 8 p.m. EST.

But that’s not all! The Frisky will be live-tweeting throughout the show and pre-show red carpet starting at 7 p.m. EST. Follow us on Twitter to join in on the fun!

  • Laverne Cox became the first openly transgender Emmy nominee today, receiving a nod for her work in “Orange Is The New Black.” In a celebratory statement, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation said, “Today, countless transgender youth will hear the message that they can be who they are and still achieve their dreams — nothing is out of reach. Laverne’s success on a hit series is a clear indication that audiences are ready for more trans characters on television.” Damn straight! [The Wrap]

9 Reasons You Should Binge On "Orphan Black" Before Season 2 Starts
Here are nine reasons you need to be all over this BBC show. Read More »

The Emmy Awards are bullshit. I just need to say that. They are boring and they often play it safe and they are the award show I am least excited to watch, but STILL. I am disappointed. Dismayed even. Why? Tatiana Maslany should have been a shoo-in for a nomination for Best Actress in a Drama for “Orphan Black.” The fact that she was overlooked is a goddamn TRAVESTY. But I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that the same folks who rewarded “Frasier” and “Two and a Half Men” year after year would be too simple-minded to understand the brilliance of Maslany’s bevy of fabulous performances on the BBC show, which just ended its second season.

The Worst Dressed At The 2013 Emmy Awards

Last night’s Emmy Awards were weird. Super. Weird. But we’ll get to that in a bit. For the most part, the looks on the red carpet were gorgeous and I could only pick a little over a dozen that I truly, truly, truly did not like — and it hurts my fashion-loving heart that many of them were worn by actresses who typically make my best dressed list. Sigh. Everyone has an off day, I guess.
