(Here we go again)
All awards shows suck, I know. It's all about behind the scenes favoritism and bandwagon following. But I still get pissed every year when they announce the same 5 fucking Emmy nominees over and over. The only good thing about the Emmys is the fact that Conan O'Brien is a great host.
Dear Emmy voters,
- Stop blowing "House."
- Stop blowing "Monk."
- Stop blowing "24."
- "Boston Legal" is garbage. Grey's Anatomy is garbage.
- No one from "Heroes" deserves an Emmy nomination for acting. The acting is the worse part of that show.
- The little kids from The Wire can outact about 99% of the nominees.
Time Magazine is riding with me on this one.
Here is the list of who was nominated and who should have won off the top of my head.
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"
The real best five actors are:
Vic Mackey "The Shield"
Tony Soprano "The Sopranos"
Coach Taylor "Friday Night Lights"
Hugh Laurie "House"
Any of the four children from "The Wire"
I could go on but who really cares?
It's sad that "The Wire" doesn't get any attention whatsoever but it's true to the show's theme. Why take the time to watch and recognize a non-sexy, careful and intelligent examination of black inner city anomie when you could just watch a bunch of rich slutty doctors whine about life to slow acoustic music.
