The Best of the Best?

I bailed on the Emmys last night and watched three back to back episodes of what should have been nominated for best drama--LOST. How is it that a show boasting wonderful actors and AMAZING writing was passed over? The ever insightful, always hilarious writer Ken Levine offers a don't miss review of the Emmys. Unlike me, he made it to the bitter end.

That's the question that's asked every year. Every so often, the outcry gets really loud and the Emmy folks change the voting process or the nominating process. The result is that you'll get one or two interesting nominees but everything else will be business as usual because the same old shows get nominated year after year after year until they go off the air. (Look at the West Wing and Will & Grace nomination history.)

Did you make it through to see Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert? One of the best moments of the show. "I lost to Barry Manilow!"

Caro, I thought Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert were the best moment of the Emmy's and seeing Aaron Spellings tribute especially when all 3 Angels showed up-Farrah, Kate & Jacqueline.

I was actually disappointed, with this years show, because I didn't think it was up to the usual Emmy show standards. I found that most of the actors didn't want to be there. During the red carpet, it felt that since some of them didn't have anything better to do that was the only reason they were there. Next year, I'll just tape it and fast forward it.

That is the $64,000 question. Sucks.

Caro, I did not make it that far. I'm sure with those two it HAD to be a 'best' moment.

Elsie, I didn't see Charlie's Angels either. Can't imagine what they looked like. Was it inspiring or scary? LOL

Tori... Yup. :)

Beth, "The Angels"-Kate & Jacqueline were very sincere and emotional through their tribute and Farrah held it down but you could tell when she was ready to go into one of her flighty moments through out her speech. Maybe it was due to nerves but she was constantly looking towards Kate & Jacqueline, holding on to their hands and giving nervious laughs or giggles.

Another wonderful moment was Dick Clark's tribute and his speech. It was very emotional not only, to me, but to the whole audience. It was also great to see Barry Manilow sing the Bandstand theme song. He made Dick Clark very happy.
