It's a Mad, Mad Rockin World
10:07 - Tom and Heidi (ravishing, in blue) again. She sure is an attractive lady -- hey, she should model! They are showing us the difference between comedy and drama by acting them out to the best of their abilities. I was not confused about the difference before and am still not, thank you very much.
10:08 - Neil Patrick Harris and Kristin Chenoweth with sadly very little banter between them are presenting Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Musical Program. This is the category I used to get outraged about in high school when people like Barbra Streisand would beat Will Ferrell, so I'm always prepared to be upset by it. And there you have it: Don Rickles beats Tina Fey because he is old and she is not. Like when Steely Dan swept the Grammys a few years ago. Anyway, he's a legend and blah, blah, blah.
10:12 - Rickles is ushered out and Kate Walsh and Wayne Brady(!) are here to tell us who won Outstanding Guest Actor and Actress in a Drama Series at the pretend Emmys last week. Someone named Glynn Turman won for In Treatment and Cynthia Nixon won for something else.
10:13 - Now those two are presenting Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series and Mad Men will win. Actually, whaaaat? Some guy who directs House won! I am surprised by this. Oh well, Mad Men'll get 'em in the Best Drama Series category.
10:15 - Back to Cynthia and Glynn, now presenting Best Writing in a Drama Series. I would also assume Mad Men would take this but The Wire is also nominated, so all bets are off. And Mad Men won! Yay! Utter crap that Dexter wasn't nominated in this category, but hey, at least Battlestar was and Boston Legal didn't win.
10:21 - That bad ass bitch Glenn Close is here! She's talking about the election for some reason, but also finds some time to present the nominees for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. Paul Giamatti will win this, clearly. And win it, he does! Tom Hanks is seen whistling with his fingers in his mouth like hicks in cartoons when sexy lady Bugs Bunny walks by. Paul Giamatti is very grateful and also makes a joke about the election that has little to do with television or his win.
10:25 - Candice Bergen has graced us with her presence and the nominees for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Alec Baldwin has this one pretty much sewn up, hopefully, but it's nice to acknowledge other people with acting jobs on television. Haha, what if Charlie Sheen won? The world would end. Anyway, the illustrious Alec Baldwin has won! And Tina looks so proud I could shed a tear. But I won't, because there's no crying in blogging.
