2009 Emmy Winner List

Written by  |  under TV

emmyThe 61st Primetime Emmys were held tonight, and there were a few surprises, and a few disappointments.

  • The Amazing Race won for Best Reality-Competition Program … again.  I think this was win number seven for them.  Yet Phil Kogen never wins for host, it makes no sense.
  • Yay for Kristin Chenoweth winning for the role of Olive on Pushing Daisies!  Such a great show, sorry to see it go.
  • Sorry Christian Clemenson didn’t win for Supporting Actor in a Drama for Boston Legal.  He was fabulous as Jerry.
  • I’m sorry, but I just can’t take The Daily Show with Jon Stewart any more.  He delivers his jokes in the exact same manner every time, and it just isn’t that funny any more.
  • American Idol won an award for directing … um … okay.  “Show the contestants!  Now … show them from another angle!”
  • Neil Patrick Harris was robbed of best Supporting Actor in a Comedy.  I’m sorry, but he was.
  • I haven’t watched Breaking Bad or Mad Men yet … I’m thinking I should.
