Emmy Analysis, Kanye Style23 Sep, 2009 By: John Latchem
For a moment I thought the Emmy broadcast was just a rerun of last year, what with all the top awards going to the same people and shows. I’m sure all the winners were more or less deserving.
But I thought I would point out some alternate choices, which I have dubbed my “Kanye” Emmys — awarded based on personal preference, gut reaction and without regard for the selection process.
Check them out on DVD (and check out the actual winners, too).
Best Comedy: Yo, “30 Rock” is a funny show, but “The Big Bang Theory” is a hilarious nerd fest week in and week out. Not even nominated? Get on that, Emmy people.
Best Drama: I’ll let “Mad Men” keep racking up the awards, but “Battlestar Galactica” is one of the best sci-fi shows I’ve ever seen.
Best Actor, Drama: No offense to Bryan Cranston, but Hugh Laurie (“House”) plays one of the best characters of all time.
Best Supporting Actor, Comedy: Sorry Jon Cryer, I loved you in Superman IV, but Kevin Dillon as Johnny Drama on “Entourage” is awesome.
Best Web-based programming: Just so you know, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is one of the most innovative uses of other media ever. Wait, Dr. Horrible actually won this category? Oh yeah. Joss Whedon now has an Emmy. Justice is served.
