Last night on the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris gave the show some pizazz with some humorous bits including a spoof on Neil having EHD – Excessive Hosting Disorder, or the production number in the middle of the show when he danced in a soul train line with Castle’s Nathan Fillion and comedian Sarah Silverman.

However, the rest of the show remained plenty lackluster, but through it all 26 awards were dolled out honoring the best in primetime comedy, drama, television movie and mini-series, and Variety and Reality programming.

I was disappointed that American Horror Story (which had more nominations than any other show) didn’t get the recognition it deserved! Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange and Zachary Quinto (whose AHS costar James Cromwell took the award) all should have been unbeatable. Also Vera Farmiga was flat out robbed! She IS Norma Bates on Bates Motel!!!! That’s my rant. Thanks!

NICE.

ditto!

Norma and Norman Bates ROCK! I posted long ago.. that this was THE show to watch… “Bates Motel” – A&E…. look for season 2.

AHS… quality stuff… and Jessica Lange will always be my favorite actress…
FX – American Horror Story…. Look for season 3. another THE big show

ie: people… look for Sundance channel…. “Rectify”…. the bomb…. SO GOOD.
THE show three….

it was a lackluster night…. staid and without hooray for hollywood….

I’ll never forget Mr. Soprano himself… and excellent film actor “James Gandolfini”.
Mr. Bear Supreme…. Sexy

he personified – equated – realed… for me…

all the qualities I find so attractive…. seductive

pay no mind to me if this is not your thing…. can’t help it.

the emmy’s acknowledge “new” talent… and “the same old same old….

I didn’t think… emmy favorite – Laura Linney deserved to win (jessica lange should have won)…. emmy favorite – Julia Louis-dreyfuss (Amy Poehler, shoulda won)… 2nd year in a row “winner” Claire Danes (Vera Farmiga, should won)… and newbie… altho I like him… Jeff Daniels …I don’t watch these shows… altho… the hottie Jon Hamm… deserves to finally win… for Mad Men.

ho-hum… either way.. it is

“Pay no mind to me if this is not your thing….” LOL….that is what I find to be so refreshing about you, Patrick….you just do your own thing and ALLOW the rest of us the freedom to do likewise….. whether we agree or disagree, no matter!!! ; )

Patrick
Patrick

it was Wonderful to see Anna Stuart…. ie: Donna Love Hudson – Another World… and she was on AMC as Greenlea’s Mother

LOL… that was so funny and a treat…

she’s dating.. James Cromwell… ie: emmy winner for American Horror story…
with Jessica Lange…. ie: season 3 is upon us

Patrick, I agree word for word for word! You are straight up gangsta! Counting the days til AHS:Coven! Unfortunately we still have a bit of a wait for Bates season 2 but it will be worth it!

In the 1970s Anna also played Toni Powers on NBCs The Doctors and Gina Dante on ABCs GH as well…

WINNER: “American Horror Story: Coven” (FX)

This just in: People love witches. The third incarnation of FX’s horror anthology, “Coven,” premiered to series-high ratings this week (5.5 million total viewers, a 44 percent improvement on last season’s “Asylum”) and topped all of its broadcast competition among adults under 35. Once all the numbers are in, “Coven’s” premiere is expected to be the most-watched broadcast in FX history. Just another cable success story in the vein of “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad” to keep network executives up at night.

@Matthew!

so…. stoked…. if you will…. for Jessica Lange

along with the returns… cast

this year adds:

Kathy Bates
Gabourey Sidibe
Angela Bassett

How hot is ALL this

Thank you so much for sharing that with me Patrick! Who cares what that Emmy panel says, it’s the fans that matter most! That’s awesome news!

You cant pay me to watch the Emmy or any award shows as I disagree with how they award the winners in all award shows or even how they even do the nominating process.

“Downton Abbey” was absolutely robbed!!!! Particularly Dame Maggie (Countess Violet) and Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary)…..Jim Carter (Carson, THE Butler…) too!

I was very glad to see Bobby Cannavale win for Boardwalk Empire. He was absolutely tremendous as Gyp Rosetti last season. One of the scariest, creepiest characters on TV in a long time. A very well deserved honor!

It’s horrid that they had that “edgy comedienne” sara silverman at emmys. She’s used blackface while tweeting abt “minstrel cramps” and she has uttered Asian american slurs from her “comedy routines” and she has even advocated that comedians should be able to say whatever during their comedic acts. Yet all she did was scream abt the ageist jokes directed at her on weirdo franco’s roast. Would emmys have a comedian be there if he/she used homophobic slurs? Of course not but sara silverman is at emmys bec bashing Asian americans w/ racial epithets is “edgy comedy” for tolerant and enlightened hollywood.

It’s pathetic that diahann carrol and 1 other African american actress and kerry washington are the only African american lead actresses on any tv drama ever! Racist hollywood loves to scream abt homophobia and gay issues yet seldom gives lead roles for dramas to actors of color. Not racially diverse emmys demonstrate that hollywood still refuses to give better roles to racial minorities while the best roles are reserved for white actors only. They must be patting themselves on the back w/ kerry washington and little nods to racial minority actors that fill “diversity quota”. All winners of major awards were white! Of course they award newsroom considering its liberal perspective on everything. It’s hilarious how hollywood bashes conservatives and republicans for being racist when liberals and democrats of hollywood are very racist towards its racial minority actors and racial minority audience. How many tv shows still have to be told from perspectives of white chars?

Those shows w/ ny city based settings are loved by emmys like nph’s sitcom and girls and snl. Whitewashed sitcoms have only white chars while snl has majority white cast. Yet ny city is 67% non white. 25% of ny city is African american and 29% of ny city is hispanic american. Stupid hollywood loves to talk abt how tolerant and enlightened they are. Yet emmys show that hollywood is anti racial diversity

Whatta ya know….we FINALLY agree on something, bc!….you’re right about how HWood bashes conservatives and GOPers for the very things that they themselves are guilty of doing! Thank you for noticing and calling out the hypocrites….MOST won’t even admit it, even if they do actually notice this fact.

It’s great that grey’s anatomy’s ellen pompeo spoke abt the horrid lack of racial diversity among emmy nominees and emmy show dancers and roles for actors of color. But she’s only white actor to speak abt this pressing topic. White actors can’t stop talking abt gay bullying bec it gets them press. But practically all white actors are dead silent when topic of lack of roles for actors of color and hollywood’s racism are being discussed. How puzzling!

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.
