What Do You Think? The Emmys

Like other Emmys before them, the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards were filled with newcomers, upsets, familiar faces, old favorites, and of course best and worst dress lists. And now that the winners are in, and the broadcast is over, what do you think?

Although you might have blogged or tweeted on this topic elsewhere, we’d like you to share your opinions and critique with us here. What was your take on the nominees and which winners surprised you? What aspects of the awards show were particularly exciting or provocative? What aspects fell short? Did Jimmy Fallon’s performance as host pale in comparison to shows past? Was the use of tweeted introductions for presenters successful or just gimmicky? What did you make of this big night for Primetime Emmy first-timers, and the ousting of shows like 30 Rock and The Amazing Race from their award winning thrones? Any particularly sentimental, awkward, or hysterical moments worth commenting on? What’s not being discussed by critics and colleagues that should be, and what’s being given much more attention than deserved?

Let us know what you think. . .

    Is it just me, or are other people really sick of the huge amount of time given to the miniseries and movies section? It reeks of being a way to get film stars into the Emmys and to give them the spotlight. But when superlative performances by people like Connie Britton, Terry O’Quinn, Michael C. Hall, Kyle Chandler, and Julianna Margulies go unawarded because the fields are so deep, aren’t we at the point where TV can stop kissing up to film and just be proud that it and its own stars are plenty good enough? TV writers get cut off ten seconds into their thankyou speech, and Al Pacino is allowed to go on a rambling trip through the space in his post-Scent of a Woman head that takes a lifetime? C’mon TV, be proud of yourself.

      From Jonathan’s mouth to Emmy’s ears: Emmys could boot miniseries from show

      Now could you write something about Friday Night Lights deserving some wins?

        I seem to have powers, eh? Great to hear. In that case: I think my mother rocks. I’ve never seen a mother on television who is as cool as her. Connie Britton comes the closest, in terms of realism. A beautiful, powerful, moving performance. Kyle Chandler is also simply wonderful. Saracen (sorry, don’t know actors’ names from hereon out) breaks my heart in every scene. Smash does arrogance with heart like few others. Tyra is superb. Riggens is Canadian, from BC no less, so what more do you want? Emmys, consider yourself notified.
