Yay! *Updated*

Congratulations to The Office for winning the best comedy Emmy!

Now for some Emmy thoughts:

Burn! Jeremy Piven to the Access Hollywood guy when asked if he has seen baby Suri: "I don't go hunting for celebrity babies. I have 116 other things to do, thank you Billy. You need another job. I mean, you have potential as a human being. This may not be right for you. Seriously, can you focus on other things?"

WTF? These Access Hollywood people are buffoons! How did they get jobs as interviewers? Nancy O'Dell tells Annette Benning she needs the Emmy to match her OSCAR. Annette says that Warren Beatty won the OSCAR, not her. Nancy says Warren needs a pair; he asks, "a pair of what?"

Shut up, Randy Jackson

Conan's opening skit? Hilarious. Of course I loved the Office part, but I also loved the Dateline scene. Conan plays a potential child molester so well.

Dammit! GOB didn't win best supporting actor!

Dick Clark is making me sad.

The presenter banter sucks! Who writes this shit?! And half the celebrities can't even read.

Tony Shalub!?! Where's the Carell love?

Barry Manilow won best variety, etc. show, beating Colbert and Stewart. What's going on here?!

Ahhh, a monster! Oh, sorry, that was just Farrah Fawcett.

LOVED Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert introducing the reality show nominees.

The Office! John Krasinski! Rainn Wilson! Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant! Woot!

Very psyched to see that! Was a little bummed that Carrell lost, but if he was going to lose, I didn't mind that it was to Tony Shalhoub. I really think he is great.

Did you see Melora Hardin last night? Yowza!!

I've never seen Monk, but I'm bitter that Carell didn't win. I didn't notice Melora up there, but Jenna Fisher looked hot too.

I was pretty disappointed about Tony Shalub and Barry Manilow winning in those catergories. Loved Conan's opening, and Steve Carell and Jon Stewart together. :-)

I saw Dick Clark in person once. He was talking to my mom. He looks just as sad in person.

i thought it was nice to see manilow get some props since he's for the most part been an undeserved butt of jokes for 30+ years.

conan was a riot!

Caroline: The opening skit and Jon and Stephen were my favorites. I rewatched on Bravo last night to see those parts.

Pog: Thanks!

Noelle: He's an American institution but sadly he won't be around too much longer.

Hotwire: I think they should have a separate category for one-time shows and recurring ones.

I think these may have been the best Emmys I've seen. Conan is a riot, I really like him. And Dick Clark made me sad, too.

The Aaron Spelling "tribute" was ridiculous to me. Just about everybody got up there and said how wonderful Aaron told them they were and how he made them a star. First of all, none of you are stars so get over it! I just didn't think that was much of a tribute at all to have a bunch of has-beens trying to get their face on camera. But maybe it's just me.

PS - I was happy Tony won! He rocks! :D

I didn't see much of it, but we channel flipped to see some of the Aaron Spelling thing. Re: Charlie's Angels--I wonder whether anyone told Farrah where she was or just let her have her fix and said "stare at the pretty lights"? Kate Jackson was always my favorite of the three (yeah, I was in junior high back then) and I thought she was cutest and the scratchy voice worked. But now--she looked like her face and neck had been pulled a little too tight for her mouth to open. (Unless she's had a stroke or something in which case I feel guilty.) Of course, she was always a bit older than the other two.

Meanwhile, Jaclyn Smith's regime of never going out in sunlight and teaching yourself to sleep only on your back to avoid scrunching your face in the pillow seems to have paid off.

Alas, I have no TV, and didn't see the damn Emmys. Crap!

Anything anyone says about Conan O'Brien had better be good, because in my humble opinion, he's one of the funniest people on earth. Love him!

So...The Office won some awards? Which ones?

Dick Clark always seemed like he never aged - then, all of a sudden....he did. Crazy.

Wait. I can't remember. Were Matthew Perry and that other guy FUNNY, or NOT funny?

HA, I made a play on Deal or No Deal, and I cannot stand that freaking show.

I do love me some Matthew Perry and that other guy (WHAT THE FREAK IS HIS NAME?) And I will be watching their show. Studio 60, right?

Renee: I agree with you on the Aaron Spelling thing.

J: Kate looked pretty scary, like her face would crack into a million pieces if she smiled. I want the name of Jaclyn Smith's plastic surgeon for future reference though.

Rusty: Conan was funny, but not as hysterical as I thought he'd be. He didn't really make fun of the attendees too much, and I think it's the funniest when they do that. The Office won Best Comedy, but Steve Carell lost best lead actor in a comedy.

Noelle: It's Bradley Whitford and the show's Studio 60. I might check it out, but I think it's on Thursdays from 9-10 and that's when I'll be watching my Office tape.

Wait, I think it's on Monday nights...I *think*....

I'm going to watch the Fall TV Preview on Saturday (ONLY because the Office cast will be on), so I guess I'll find out then.

LOL'd at your comment on Farrah Fawcett. The Charlie's Angels bit was one of the most cringe-inducing things I've seen in a long time.
