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.

The uber-popular Breaking Bad now in its final season, finally won the Outstanding Drama Series category after four losses.   Anna Gunn also finally won her first Emmy for the series, in the Supporting Actress Drama Series category.  In comedy, Modern Family became the first comedy to win four times in a row since Frasier had a five-peat in the 90’s.   Here is a complete list of winners below!

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!!! ; )

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!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
