I’m so sorry for the delay, but for the first time in eons, I HAD TO WORK DURING AN AWARD SHOW! So my dear friend Claire DVR’d it for me so I could see it. And after watching it, I wish she had ignore me asking her to do it.
Sorry but no pre-game show blather. I can’t afford cable so I missed the start of it all on E! at noon on Sunday. But I didn’t see any tragedies on the news or any other blogs. Ho hummm…
Okay, now I’m at Claire’s. We’re eating dinner, and she’s got a bottle of wine (she is awesome) to help me tolerate this shit.
AND NOW THE START OF THE SHOW!
Hmmm, it’s a kinda lame taped montage of Neil Patrick Harris (from now on, NPH) talking about watching all of the TV shows at the same time or something. Glass of wine number one is consumed. Okay, blah, blah, blah, here he is on stage, talking about hosting the show.
More blathering…and then Jimmy Kimmel interrupts to give some advice – then Jane Lynch & Jimmy Fallon tell him what he should be doing, and then Conan O’Brien comes out and saves the day with a killer monologue about what it was like to host in 2002 – WHAT, KEVIN SPACEY? Genius!
THEN they cut to Tina Fey & Amy Poehler cutting up, telling NPH he should take off his pants and “twerk” – while they are wearing 3-D glasses and eating popcorn in the front row.
Then they introduce the BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY – that Merrit Weaver won and then gave the BEST ACCEPTANCE SPEACH EVER – it went a little something like this – “Thank you so much, thank you so much…I gotta go, bye!”
She was nervous.

‘ya know, he’s good and all BUT NOT THAT GREAT. And the show is kinda boring. I think that making fun of geeky, nerdy, science dorks has a shelf-life. They’re already on TBS – enough already.
Awwww, Rob Reiner, saying a heartfelt goodbye to Jean Stapleton.
Here’s Matt Damon & Michael Douglas to introduce Elton John! He sang for about 20 minutes, which means that all of the winners will now have 14 seconds to make their speeches.

Now the tribute to Corey Monteith, the drug addict guy from GLEE. It’s too bad he couldn’t keep it together.
Claire offers to fast forward through the commercials, but I want to see them because I MISS WATCHING TEE VEE SO MUCH. How sad is that?
Annnnnnnnnnnd they’re back – AND FINALLY NPH is singing and dancing! But it’s SMACK DAB in the middle of the show, which is what he’s singing and dancing about, which is a little obnoxious.
Oh, there’s Alec Bald…wait, THAT’S JON HAMM? What the hell happened to him, he’s HUGE! And Sarah Silverman? What the hell is going on? OH, she said “vagina.” All is right with the world.
Elton John already took up an hour, WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS?
At least the show is half over. Only 90 minutes to go!
OUTSTANDING REALITY SHOW
THE VOICE – YAAAAY! FINALLY THE AMAZING RACE LOST – ohhhhh, but Mark Burnett STILL is a winner.
And now…HERE ARE THE BLACK WOMEN! Diahann Carroll & Kerry Washington!
Diahann is KILLING IT, very funny! Then she gave a nice speech about how the Emmys have been doing better with recognizing other cultures (read non-white people) I wonder why she didn’t mention Shonda Rhimes? Oh well, MAMA LOOKS GREAT! And Kerry really works that lisp of hers…YAASSSSSS!
