I watched the Emmy Awards last night, as I almost always do, although I'm usually disappointed (sometimes downright pissed off) by the results. 24 for Best Drama? Come on.
I'm glad The Office won for Best Comedy, although Arrested Development would have made me just as happy. And Two and a Half Men was nominated, but not My Name is Earl? Again, come on. Who are these Academy people? Don't they watch TV?
The best part was probably the way Bob Newhart demonstrated, before uttering a word, that he is one of the funniest men ever to appear on TV.
Well, The Wire comes back this year. David Simon should clear a space on the mantle now. Except he shoots in Baltimore, not Hollywood...will the Academy notice?
