Conan was a great choice to host. Actual awards were one disappointment after another (to me, anyway) but there was a small bounce back into redemption with "24" and Kiefer finally winning best drama and best actor in a drama respectively. I can also live with "The Office" taking best comedy. I was also pleasantly surprised to see Andre Braugher get an Emmy for "Thief" (which also means that I REALLY need to finish up on watching it).

The Emmys ( site is a little swamped, so you might be better off popping over to The Nation's Newspaper ( to get the list of tonight's winners. (For some REAL yucks, be sure to check out their Emmys blog (

Barry Manilow looked exactly like Cloris Leachman. If they shared the stage, I wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

Hello, Godless Soddomites. Ignoring that the nominees were largely retarded to begin with (Hugh Laurie?), it only got worse from there.

Mullaly over Cheryl Hines
Piven over Arnett - at least it wasn't Sean Hayes
Earl over Arrested (and Office and Extras) in writing
Manilow over Colbert
Monk over Carell

Office was the second best choice so good for them. The Emmys are not a very accurate barometer of quality: you heard it here first.

For "Best Roll Call Video for Variety, Music or Comedy Program Writers," I vote for The Colbert Report's bears.

The opening had some brilliant moments, the best of which was easily "Dateline: To Catch a Predator."

God bless Tony Shalhoub.

Frances Conroy would have been a great feel-good moment for me, but it's OK cause did you SEE Mariska?!?

Super-humble Kiefer and 24 finally get validation.

The Letterman roll call REALLY got me for some reason. Brilliant.

Conan was gold hosting...the opening skit was awesome, and the part with Bob Newhart was money. Great host, and easily the best part of the show.

This is the second time I have seen Dick Clark since the stroke, and it is just sad. To see a guy that never seemingly grow old during my first 22 years of life age as quickly as he did since the stroke, is kind of surreal. It just doesnt feel right.

I really appreciated the emotion by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jeremy Piven. Especially Piven, who is such a bad ass on Entourage in a completely different light.

Extremely heavy influence of the Daily Show and Colbert tonight, and definitely wasn't enough. I wonder how long they wait before they give Colbert a shot at hosting, possibly within the next 3 years?? Still hard to believe that the Daily Show was once home for Jon Stewart, Steve Carell, and Stephen Colbert, at one time.

Still disappointed that Laurie didn't get at least a nomination, but it'll pass, besides, season 2 of House is out, and I shall be spending my money soon to have it.

-Office taking Best Comedy while Earl takes Direction & Writing smacks of "even-up" voting. Still, great to see The Office rewarded for their phenomenal season, and I'm looking forward to more Emmys from them between now and when the show becomes unprofitable.
-Piven getting an award sits fine with me, but no Will Arnett makes me want to punch things.

I thought it was terrible that 24 won Best Drama Series. A couple of years ago? Sure. But this season--and much of the previous one--was very poorly written. Too many huge gaping plotholes and not enough grounding in relationships and real emotions. That said, I was very happy that Kiefer won--he does a terrific job and I've often said that the show wouldn't work without him.

The opening sequence was a riot. From Conan trying to get help from the OTHER C. O'Brian to South Park to Dateline was brilliant. One question: Who was "in the closet" with Conan in the South Park segment? I missed that because I was working.

X-E's co-Worst Poster of all time! says:

Who else? Tom Cruise.

Colbert losing to Manilow ain't right.

AD getting rotten flowers tossed on its grave wasn't right either.

But at least Leachman got some props for being the Grandma from Hell on Malcolm (which was still hilarious... except no one but me was watching)

"....and Kareem Abdul Jabbar !!!!"

I was getting worried for Bob Newhart....

I'm surprised that Jeremy Piven's head didn't explode onstage - this should do wonders for his alleged ego issues in Hollywood.....

Steve Carell got robbed in my opinion but then I haven't really watched MONK since Season 1....

Katherine Heigl & Evangeline Lilly get my votes as Best Dressed......

and finally, do we really need to see Simon Cowell's chest hair ????

While there were plenty of snubs on the nominations that I had problems with (Rainn Wilson), at least 24 and The Office won the big awards. Those are possibly my 2 favorite shows right now.

I was pissed after the first award then turned it off. Bob Newhart is probably the funniset man alive.

I tend to agree with Peter's criticism of 24, but I like the show so much that I will gladly take this 'makeup' Emmy -- though Lost was shafted from top to bottom. And good for Kiefer!

I never thought I'd see the day where a Law & Order actor (on a show where the plots and format drives the action, not the actors) took home an Emmy. I mean, no knock on Mariska, but if Jerry Orbach or Sam Waterson never won one, I'm not sure what else you have to do.

Scene: Mark DeRosa's brain. The year is 2005.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Come on, another position change? One day it's second base, the next day right field, now it's third? Why, I oughta go into Buck's office and throw his talking fish on the floor!
Other part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Hold on, other part of the brain. We're making $500,000 this year. Last year we made $725,000. All for playing a damn kids' game. This is, as they say in Brainland, a no-"us"-er. We're not going to complain.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: You're right, dude. Let's go back to looking at this crazy porn Teixeira gave us!

Glad to see I'm not the only one dissapointed with Colbert losing out to BARRY MANILOW! That is just.... well, it's just plain wrong!

Glad to see Jeremy Piven win, though.

Don't worry...all that just happened is that The Re-poor just got some new, tasty cannon fodder. Although it's worth nothing that someone was taking a little too much glee in the loss, being quoted in the press tent as saying "In your face, Colbert Report!".

The culprit? Emmy-winning correspondant for the Daily Show, Steven Colbert.

Since The Shield got shafted, I boycotted the Emmys.

I dont see the big to-do over Colbert either. Not that I think Barry Manilow should beat ANYBODY in the 21st century for any award including the word BEST though.
