Jim and his Emmy... it's a beautiful thing

Oh, I am the happiest fan girl in the WORLD. Last night, one of my two favorite actors, Jim Parsons, finally won his Emmy Award for playing Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory. Just watching him cover his face with his hand in sheer amazement and listening to that sweet speech made my heart flutter a million miles a minute.  I have a great group of friends on Twitter and we were holding Parsons Prayer Circles  right before his category was called. I like to think the power of fan girl prayer helped out a little!  Jim is the funniest actor on television today and this Emmy Award was well deserved and Parsons fan everywhere are proud of Jim for everything he has accomplished. Here is to the new season of The Big Bang Theory and our favorite nerd, Sheldon Cooper!!!!

On a side note: Jim, dear…. you never got back with me about being your date. Sigh… I even had a dress picked out. Oh, well…. you DO know the Golden Globes are coming up in a few short months, don’t you?  Just throwing that out there for you.

I have to admit, this was one of the greatest Emmy broadcasts EVER. From the inspired opening number with host Jimmy Fallon performing Born to Run with the cast of Glee and such luminaries such as Tina Fey, Jon Hamm, Betty White, et. al, to George Clooney working his sexy self into an extremely amusing Modern Family bit, I was entertained throughout two out of three hours. I don’t watch the mini-series, so I typically have to suffer through that section of the awards… oh, well. Really, though, the time flew by and I was laughing throughout. So I say WELL DONE NBC!

On some of the winners:

YAY to Jane Lynch and Kyra Sedgewick! Jane Lynch is a scene chewing machine and her Sue Sylvester is a demon in a track suit. I love her. And Kyra has been deserving for so long for her role on The Closer. I mean, Kyra IS the closer. She truly is the show. Bravo, ladies!

Cheers to Top Chef for one of the two major upsets of the night, dethroning The Amazing Race in the reality show competition category. It was time we got some fresh blood in the winners circle.

I just wish that would extend to lead actor in a drama… WHEN IS HUGH LAURIE GOING TO WIN?!?!?! He is WAY overdue and the episode he submitted was wonderful and character changing. I mean, no offense to Bryan Cranston, but DAMN! The only good thing I can say is that he isn’t going to be eligible next year, so my man Hugh still has a shot!

Glad to see Modern Family get the best comedy nod. They are funny as hell and well deserving of the award. On the other hand… I just don’t get Mad Men. I tried watching it. Really, I did. I just can’t get emotionally involved in this show. Well… congratulations to them, anyway, on their third straight best drama award.

On the man who should host every award show imaginable:

Oh, how I adore thee, Ricky Gervais. I have followed him for years and he was the only reason I watched the last Golden Globes. He KILLED it, last night with his bit about the booze…. and who doesn’t love a good Mel Gibson dig? Oh… and beer. Leave it to Ricky to bring the booze to the party. Can’t wait until the next Golden Globes… maybe I will be there with my date, Jim. Ya never know…
