    My question is why Merritt Weaver didn’t give a speech?

  2. Amber says:

    Why wouldn’t Dr. Horrible invite Captain Hammer to sing along with him?

    I don’t believe that the random guy standing there was planned… Ha ha.

    My only question is: who bribed who to take this Emmy from Kerry Washington? I’ve watched both, Homeland and Scandal, and many, many times during Homeland I have to suppress the need to cringe at Claire Danes’ overacting. She always looks unhinged, even when she doesn’t have to be. It’s like there’s only one tone she can sustain. I mean, I think she’s great and everything but did the Emmy voters really have a chance to sample Kerry’s work? The woman is flawless in her execution. I could never believe such a small person can look so big. She fills the screen with her presence, even when she’s vulnerable and small. You can’t see anything else. Just one twitch and you know where she’s going emotionally. It’s rather mesmerizing And I had never been a Kerry fan before, whereas I have been a Claire Danes fan since she did Little Women. Anywho, I just think it’s a shame that t his was taken from Kerry. Add to that the lack of diversity that permeated the show and it really doesn’t look good.

      Many viewers do not understand the Emmy process. Actors generally submit one episode (or a brief clip reel) of their show for consideration. In many cases this is all that many voters see when deciding who to vote for as they do not watch entire seasons of a show. Acting winners Danes and Daniels had showcase episodes that were individually riveting even though those episodes did not necessarily reflect the quality of the entire season of their work. In the case of Danes, it was the episode “Q&A” that rightly won the late Henry Bromell the Emmy for best writing in a drama. That was one of the best episodes of television ever produced. That’s likely what helped her win. Kerry Washington sizzles in a fairly soapy show and she’s great in it. She anchors it in fact but watching a singular episode of the show would not necessarily make that evident to someone who does not regularly watch the series.

    Julia Louis and Tony Hale was the best Emmy moment since Amy Poehler brought up all the comedy actress nominees a few years back when Mellissa McCarthy won. of course there have been many stellar moments in between, but that’s a true comedy actress right there, always looking for the next great bit.

    • Aprilcot says:

      LOVED that bit! I’ve only seen Veep a couple of times, but JLD is awesome. The fact that Tony Hale had won prior made it even better. I was pulling for Bill Hader in the supporting actor category, but I’m just glad that someone from Modern Family (or the horrible Girls) didn’t win.

    What about the Jimmy Fallon mic. height thing?

    Was I seeing things, or did Melissa McCarthy give an acceptance speech, I looked to see if she was in the running?
