I see why the Emmy viewers were down. It was nothing to remember by Jane Lynch, who won an Emmy for best supporting actress for Glee hosted the show and of course Chris Colfer, who was nominated for the best supporting actor did not win, but he got the Golden Globe Awards, so that was good.
If they had someone young and popular to host the show, it would be great – Billy Crystal is out of the question. He’s old, but he makes a good host. Jimmy Fallon hosted the show for NBC a year ago, and he was great. The ratings were good back then.
It could be the writing and creativity of the show but come on 63rd The Primetime Emmys awards is getting older, and it needs someone younger, not too young, but who has been in the business and who will attract the younger and older viewers. Miley Cyrus could have hosted the show. Better yet, Steve Carrel. Or a popular actor whom everyone knows love between the age of 20 – 45.
This year top winners were “Mad Men” and “Modern Family” took the top prizes again for best drama and comedy series. Is anyone watching “Mad Men” on AMC? How come “True Blood” did not win? If anyone who hasn’t watched “Modern Family” on ABC is missing a great comedy. The story lines came straight from the headlines – mainly our family lives, which are quite hysterical to watch – our lives are portrayed on TV.
Six of the eight main acting awards went to Emmy first-timers, including KyleChandlerfor “Friday Night Lights,” Julie Bowen and Ty Burell for “Modern Family, and popular winner Melissa McCarthy for comedy “Mike & Molly.”
McCarthy’s beauty pageant-style “crowning” was the highlight of the hour. This was interesting are they going to change how the presenters and have the nominated actors to come on stage. It would be easier for the camera persons to get everyone on stage at the same time. They could make it more like TV-reality world, who’s getting off the island. Walk the plank. Planking!
Charlie Sheen made an apologize speech and wish his show a great success without him. Even though they killed his character, will he come back and haunt his brother? That will be hilarious to watch. I did not get a chance to see the show. I hope they repeat the show this weekend.
