Hooray! Award season has begun! On Sunday, the Golden Globe Awards will be handed out in Hollywood and I couldn’t be more excited. The Globes are my favorite award show of the season. While the Academy Awards have more “prestige,” I could fast-forward through about 90 percent of it. (Ditto for the Emmy Awards, which never fail to put me in a catatonic state.) No, the Golden Globes are the best and I’ve got five super solid reasons why. Keep reading »
Here’s how I generally feel about awards shows: they’re exciting for the first 15 minutes and then things get sloooooow from there and I just want it to end so I can go to sleep. I was prepared to be totally bored during last night’s Emmy Awards. But the show turned out to be both adorable and entertaining. Besides the “Glee”-tastic, Jon Hamm rump-shakin’ opening number, here are my 10 favorite Emmy moments. With videos included! Keep reading »
In the opening number for last night’s Emmy Awards, producers brought out the big guns — Jon Hamm. Dancing. As in, backing dat ass up. And also the cast of “Glee,” Betty White, Tina Fey, Hurley from “Lost,” Tim Gunn, Jimmy Fallon, and Kate Gosselin, but seriously, most importantly, JON HAMM. Dannnncinggggg. Clip above!

So, the Emmys are this weekend! And while that’s awesome and all, it’s just a touch annoying that the awards show is going down on Sunday night, which just happens to be the biggest night on television. “True Blood” and “Mad Men“—thanks for showing new episodes smack bam in the middle.
That beef aside, we’re hoping the Emmys will be fantastic. After the jump, 10 things we hope will happen. Keep reading »
Picking who sits where for the Emmys has to be complicated. Images of the seating chart were released today and it appears that the “Mad Men” cast got the prime real estate, with Jon Hamm front and center, and Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, and then Christina Hendricks behind him in a line. We wonder what kind of fun conversations John, aka Roger Sterling, will have with Jeff Probst of “Survivor”? After the jump, check out where Tina Fey and Neil Patrick Harris ended up.

Now, I love “Glee.” I also love “Modern Family.” So I’m kind of glad I am not part of the committee that’ll have to vote on which show wins the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy. Both shows have put together very funny ads in Hollywood Reporter. Keep reading »
This morning, the Primetime Emmy nominations were announced and, as usual, there were few surprises. The Lead Actor in a Drama series category is especially competitive, in my TV-obsessed opinion, with “Mad Men”‘s Jon Hamm facing off against critical faves Hugh Laurie (“House”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), and Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad,” my current favorite show) — Matthew Fox (“Lost”) scored his first nomination, as did Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”). I love me some Don Draper and Dexter Morgan, but I’m pulling for Cranston, who plays Walter White on “Breaking Bad,” but like I said, I have a meth-like addiction to that show. Not that I know what meth addiction is like. Keep reading »
If Victoria Rowell had worn her Obama gown to the Emmy Awards last year, it probably wouldn’t have been so shocking because a lot of celebs were showing their support for Barack Obama‘s presidential campaign at that time. But she donned a dress with his face all over it at a time when most people are still trying to figure out whether it’s appropriate to still wear their Obama paraphernalia now that he’s president. Victoria said she was trying to make a statement and she certainly did, but I think her reasoning was lost in the shock value. She told Essence.com that health care reform was her motive for wearing the gown …

How do I love Neil Patrick Harris? Let me count the ways. I love him for his incessant high-fiving on “How I Met Your Mother” and for making me actually feel empathy for the world’s ultimate cad. I love him for suiting up in a white tuxedo to host Sunday’s Emmy Awards. I love him for his diabolical turn in Joss Whedon‘s too-fun-for-TV “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog.” I love him for having a kick-ass voice and doing the Broadway thing with ease. I love him for his cameos in “Harold and Kumar” movies. I love him for the sexy creased brow. I love him for playing a teenage doctor who posed deep questions about the meaning of relationships to his computer eons before Carrie Bradshaw.
But more than anything, I love Neil Patrick Harris for being openly gay. Keep reading »
