When it comes to writing about the annual primetime Emmy awards, it's hard to know where to start. Do I start with the awards and how some very worthy performances were rewarded, even though so many more were overlooked in favor of "paint-by-numbers voting?" Or do I start with the snooze-worthiness of the show itself?
Hmmm. What to do?
All right, let's start with the awards themselves. First the good news. The marvelous Jane Lynch was rewarded for her hysterically evil high school coach, Sue Sylvester on Glee. It's very cool that someone who's worked in the business for years finally gets a juicy role and runs with it.
Newcomer Archie Punjabi took home the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, for her spicy role as a law firm private eye with a mysterious past on The Good Wife.
Kyra Sedgewick, after multiple nominations, finally won Best Actress in a Drama for The Closer.
And though I love Glee's Matthew Morrison to death, I couldn't argue too much with Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory beating him out for Best Actor in a Comedy. Except Jim Parsons doesn't have to sing and dance on a weekly basis.
Now let's talk about some head scratching awards.
