We're lying. We couldn't blog red carpet fashion because our fantasy draft ran a little long.
We we're watching the red carpet though. Some NBC hits and misses are as follows:
Jaime Pressley. Smoking hot in her purple halter. It's a shame she had to ask her publicist for the Fred Leighton's name.
Allison Janney. Her fiance was pressured for a wedding date, but we don't know who wouldn't marry Allison in a heartbeat in her red flapper dress. She always looks classy at award shows and she did so again tonight.
Jenna Fischer. For as plain as she can look on the office, her dress tonight showed how beautiful she really is.
Sarah Chalke. We have no idea what that lace number was. Looks like a 1980s prom dress.
USA Today TV critic Robert Bianco's Emmy selections are out today and his picks in one category have us a little worried.
With My Name is Earl being snubbed, we thought Jaime Pressly would be a guaranteed win for the show in the Supporting Actress, Comedy category. Like us, Bianco think she deserves the win, but he thinks Mullally will take home the trophy for her last season on Will & Grace. Don't get us wrong, for years, we thought Karen Walker was the funniest character on television, but that was until Earl's ex-wife Joy appeared on the scene.
Who should win this battle royale?
We've been out of commission here at FJZ due to minor TypePad glitches and a big move, but we're back in business and couldn't be more excited! Fall TV and the Emmys are upon us.
This week started out with a bang with the season premiere of Prison Break and we saw a great ep of Rockstar last night. And now the countdown begins for the Emmys.
Our coverage on Sunday will start at approximately 5:30 CDT. (We'd love to blog about fashion earlier than that, but our fantasy football draft takes precedence.)
Let’s hope NBC takes home some trophies. Any readers have any predictions? Share your thoughts with us.
We said it in our post yesterday and today everyone else is talking about it. Critics, experts and bloggers are all outraged that Jason Lee and Zach Braff were skipped over for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series nominations.
Read what others are saying:
USA Today The site is even polling the worst snub, although Braff is not included on the list. As of 8:45 CDT this morning, 34 % of voters said the biggest snub was Hugh Laurie of "House," with Lee coming in second with 18% of the vote.
Too bad Zach Braff isn't talking about it on his blog. We'd really like to hear his thoughts.
NBC received a slew of Emmy nominations this morning, but there were definitely some surprises in our opinion.
Outstanding Comedy Series: "The Office" and "Scrubs."
Outstanding Drama Series: "The West Wing."
Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series: Steve Carell as Michael Scott on "The Office."
Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series: Christopher Meloni as Detective Elliot Stabler on "Law & Order: SVU" and Martin Sheen as President Josiah Bartlet on "The West Wing."
Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series: Debra Messing as Grace on "Will & Grace."
Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series: Mariska Hargitay as Detective Olivia Benson on "Law & Order: SVU" and Allison Janney as C.J. Cregg on "The West Wing."
Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series: Sean Hayes as Jack on "Will & Grace."
Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series: Jaime Pressly as Joy on "My Name is Earl" (You go girl!!) and Megan Mullally as Karen on "Will & Grace."
Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series: Alan Alda as Arnold Vinick on "The West Wing."
Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series: Alec Baldwin as Malcolm and Leslie Jordan as Beverley Leslie both on "Will & Grace."
Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series: James Woods as Dr. Nate Lennox on "E.R." (Thank God they passed over John Leguizamo. We hope he'll be off the show soon.)
Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series: Blythe Danner as Marilyn Truman on "Will & Grace."
And the biggest misses...
"Scrubs," "Scrubs" and more "Scrubs." Yes, the show received a nomination for Best Comedy, but what about Zach Braff? He definitely deserved a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. And the rest of the cast was passed over for supporting nominations. Why do people not like this show as much as we do?
"My Name is Earl." One major nomination? The Academy is joking right??? We can not believe this show was passed over for Outstanding Comedy Series and that Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee were passed over for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series respectively.
If these shows go off the air, we swear we are never watching NBC again.
So tell us, loyal readers. Do you think any of these nominees will actually win? We think Jaime Pressly is a shoe in, but what about "The West Wing" and "Will & Grace?" The Academy has always had a soft spot for these two shows, but are they deserving of wins this year? We say, yes to "The West Wing" whose last season was possibly its best but no to "Will & Grace" whose last season was a major letdown.
(Disclaimer: While "Monk", on USA, owned by NBC Universal Television Studios, received numerous nominations, we have not included them.)
