64th Emmy Nominees were in Pajamas

If you have gotten up pretty early to watch the Emmy nominations on TV, this morning and see Jimmy Kimmel in pajamas they always have the announcements very early in the morning. I am still asleep at eight in the morning, and I usually get up by nine in the morning. If it is eight here on the eastern coast America, it will be five in the morning in California.

Anyway, the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, while I was drinking my coffee in my bath robe. It’s a long list.

Kerry Washington of “Scandal” and Jimmy Kimmel, in pajamas, who is hosting the Emmy this year on ABC in September 23, 2012.

My favorites were nominated, and they were “Good Luck Charlie” and “Wizards of Waverly Place” on the Disney Channel.  The list includes many of last year’s nominees, including “Mad Men,” which has taken the drama series Emmy for four consecutive years, and “Modern Family,” which has won twice for comedy series. Very funny show and I am watching the reruns during the summer time.

New to the ballot are “Veep,” “Girls” and “New Girl” actress Zooey Deschanel. “Girls” on HBO wasn’t that funny at all, and the story wasn’t that great as a reality picture it, but I hope the “New Girl’” Zooey Deschanel wins an Emmy for performance. She deserved it.

“Mad Men,” “30 Rock,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “Game of Thrones” are among the nominees.
