New Directions Heads to the Emmys!

With 19 nominations!!!!  For Best Comedy Series…including acting noms for Lea Michele (Lead Actress in a Comedy Series), Matthew Morrison (Lead Actor in a Comedy Series), Chris Colfer! (Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series) and of course, Jane Lynch (Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series)…GLEE is just 3 nominations short of the all-time record…30 Rock received 22 last year, this year? 15, not too shabby…not only will 30 Rock have GLEE to deal with for Best Comedy Series, but also upstart Modern Family, and Showtime’s Nurse Jackie…Modern Family nabbed supporting acting noms for Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara, and Julie Bowen…NO ED O’NEILL?!?…that’s an oversight!…
Thankfully, Edie Falco has a shot to add another Emmy to her mantle, as she is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Jackie…Toni Collette gets nominated in the same category for United States of Tara…both have a shot at pulling an upset…True Blood snags a Best Drama Series nomination, but receives zero acting noms!…which is sort of understandable…it’s not the best acting on television, but the show and the creators deserve the accolades…and not to be a snob, LOST receives 12 nominations for its final season…the answers will come August 29th…with Jimmy Fallon hosting…Whoo-hoo!

Paula’s Back! and Why I Never Watched Lost…

Yes children, Paula Abdul, the judge you love to ridicule, will be back on primetime TV this fall…Paula will serve as the executive producer, judge, and mentor for a new CBS dancing competition reality series…wait for it….Got To Dance…thank God for this!…and it just might air opposite American Idol…as will Simon’s new American version of The X Factor…WOW!…Cowell had said in his sit down interview with Oprah last week, Paula’s departure has affected the viewership of Idol…didn’t really need a genius to tell me that…and he also said he keeps in touch with her…awwwwww…I guess it was a good thing she got out when she did…Cowell also said he didn’t want Ellen DeGeneres to take his seat on Idol…which is a little harsh, but he’s right…he said his replacement needs to be someone who knows what he/she is talking about with some music industry cred…however, I don’t know what will save the colossal sinking ship which is this season’s Idol…if Lee wins, which he probably will, he’ll be forgotten in a year’s time and if Crystal pull off the upset, we may forget her too, but I hope not…
Okay, I feel I should address why I never watched LOST until the last 20 minutes last night…to be honest, it just never interested me…and I know I’m the world’s biggest nerd when it comes to sci-fi/fantasy movies and shows…LOST just never got me…when you have as many shows to watch during a regular TV season as I do, LOST never made the cut…I know one day, I’ll catch up on reruns or I may even go out on a limb and rent each season, but now that I know how the series ended, I’m not sure…no big deal..I have several co-workers who were fanatic and one of them told me basically everything that happened in the show, so I may have not LOST out…tee-hee!…one thing I want to say, Michael Emerson aka Ben Linus, should play Klaus Nomi STAT!
That is all!
