Live Blogging the Emmys...

Again, I don't know how long I'll make it, but here I am.

It is currently 19:20 hours, and I am watching that awful Guiliana woman and Ryan Seacrest on the E! channel. Please. Fire both of them and bring back Kathy Griffin.

Is Simon Cowell drunk?

I would so do Howie Mandel if I had the chance.

YEAH!!! KATHY GRIFFIN!!! With that Major Todd. Oh. yea. right. Seacrest wanted Kathy to stop by and "see" him. I believe that.

Jeff Probst is on now, explaining CBS's decision to divide the upcoming Survivor season teams by racial make-up. I don't care. I haven't watched the show since the third season.

Paula Abdul is drunk already. She stood there for two minutes, talking with Ryan, then said "didn't I talk to you yesterday?" before walking off the set -- in the middle of a question from Ryan.

It's okay, Paula, I hate him too.

Ryan is really short, isn't he.

The show starts now... it is 20:00

This opening might not have been a good idea, with that plane crashing today. Just a thought.

I have yet to laugh at the opening. Is it me, or is the laugh track a bit much?

Crap. I spoke too soon. The South Park/Tom Cruise spoof.

Chris Hansen of Dateline was pretty funny, too.

The obligatory Mel Gibson joke. Thanks for getting it out of the way.

I think the "host" has more than just limited musical ability, but maybe it is just me.

First Award: Best Supporting Actress, Comedy: Megan Mullally. Good for her.

Best Supporting Actor, Drama:
Alan Alda. I still love him.

Commercial time.

That whole Bob Newhart thing is funny.

Best Supporting Actress, Drama: Blythe Danner. Uhm... why? Sympathy vote?

Get off the stage already.

Best Supporting Actor, Comedy: Jeremy Pevin. Shocker. I thought people hated him.

Commercial again?

Supporting Actress, M/S, Movie: Kelly MacDonald. Uhm... who?
What the hell is she saying? I'm having a hard time with that accent.

Commercial again.

Variety Music or Comedy: Daily Show.

Awards announced two weeks ago. Blah Blah Blah.

Directing in Comedy:
My Name is Early, Pilot. Oh yeah. The exact show I turned off after five minutes. Funny speech though. He has a wife?

Outstanding writing, comedy: My Name is Earl, pilot. Eh. Thank you speech even funnier. Why isn't he writing the show that funny?

Commercial time, yet again.

Simon Cowell, who get's boo'd, announces the tribute to Dick Clark. Simon is sweating like a pig.

Thank goodness, they didn't have Dick walk out onto the stage while on camera. He's still not quite well. And then he joked about it. And was funny.

I swear it is true: I listend to my copy of The Essential Barry Manilow today.

Commercial time.

Individual Perfomance comedy/musical: Barry Manilow. Shouldn't he have thanked Bette Midler?

Guess Actress, Actor, Drama: Don't care, not tonight. Show me Wenty without his shirt.

Outstanding Director, Drama: Some guy who directed 24 once or twice. I've never seen the show.

The "new" Golden Age of Television? I don't think so. Does he watch the same crap I do every week?

Outstanding Writing, Drama: Some guy for the Sopranos. Another show I've never seen.

Commercial time.

I'm not going to make it to 11. I'll probably stop watching and start surfing for porn, as Colin suggests.

Outstanding Supporting Actor, Mini/Movie: Jeremy Irons. Okay, whatever. What's the next award? Never heard of this movie/mini.

Outstanding Directing, variety, music, comedy: Like anybody cares.

They are running long? They've got 1-1/2 hours left. How many more fucking awards could there be?

Outstanding Writing, comedy, musical, variety: Daily Show. Okey Dokey.

Commercial time. Shocker, I know.

I am not going to make it to 23:00 watching this show.

It has just occured to me that I haven't been time-stamping the indiviual posts. Crap.

Is that what it looks like when you fast forward in TIVO? I may have to get one.

Lead Actor, Mini/Movie: Thank goodness it wasn't Jon Voight. He would have been whining about not seeing Shiloh.

Lead Actor, Comedy: Tony Shalhoub. Don't watch the show, but the commercials are always funny. Speech funny, too. And short, not unlike him.

Commercial time, redux.

That's it. I can't stand it anymore. I gotta stop and go to bed. Let me know how it ends, will you?

Crap. One last thing. What the hell was Candace thinking with that outfit?

-----
Yes, I saw the original Charlie's Angels in the Aaron Spelling tribute, and I'm all teary eyed. But now, I'm turning the show off.

I forgot to set the DVR. We went out for dinner and then played darts at Studz. We did catch the end. Unfortunately The Office won best comedy. There were three other shows int he running I would rather have won it.
