The Emmy nominations were announced with the usual fanfare, excitement, and disappointment. You can read about it here at the Word of the Nerd site. Overall, I think there are mostly solid choices. It’s nice to see HBO’s Girls get some acknowledgement as well as Downton Abbey and even Sherlock (including nominations for co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman). But Proffitt and I are both really agitated about The Walking Dead being totally dissed except for some technical acknowledgement. And I still am not 100% satisfied with the reasoning for American Horror Story or the short-lived Ashley Judd vehicle Missing being considered miniseries. (What is the plural of miniseries anyway? Miniseries? Miniserieses? Minseri?)
But I digress. Rather than moan and complain about who should have been nominated, I am awarding my own Emmy awards, the Bexxy Awards if you will.
The Official Hot Guy
Timothy Olyphant for Justified
A good but not stellar show, Olyphant is due some acknowledgement. Now, Proffitt disagrees but I think Olyphant and Josh Duhamel are the new “Paxton/Pullman?” I watched an entire Duhamel movie thinking I was watching Timothy Olyphant. What do YOU think?
Actor Who Makes Best Use of Being A Supporting Actor
Norman Reedus- The Walking Dead
The sideways glances, the glares, Reedus is just a joy to watch as Daryl Dixon, even when the other actors are in the spotlight. He does it gracefully without taking their “thunder.”
Who Knew He Was Packing?
Jon Bernthal -The Walking Dead
Shane was coming unhinged and unlikeable and just committed a horrible act of humanity, but when he took off that shirt there was an audible gasp in the world.
Gone To Crazytown
Enjoyable but it’s gotten so convoluted and messy, why doesn’t Sookie just move? I would. Too many supernatural characters on too small acreage. Reel it in a bit because I think I could stop watching and be okay with that.
Most Devoted Fanbase
Time and time again the fans show their online support getting the boys TV Guide covers, online awards, they’ve raised thousands for all kinds of charities, and along with Proffitt and I have taken part in making the Guinness World Records for co-star Misha Collin’s un-organization GISHWHES (The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen). Go us! We won’t even give up hope for the show after a lackluster few seasons.
Todd and the Book of Pure Evil
PURE fun is more like it. Thank you Canada.
Am I Really 30+ And Watching MTV?
I still can’t believe this awesome show is on MTV. It makes me question the world as I know it.
Breaking Our Hearts Time and Time Again But You Still Make Us Smile
Has anyone done Bruce Campbell Con? This guy needs his own con!
It’s my awards ceremony, I want a tie
How I Met Your Mother
Smart writing delivered even smarter by both casts. The casts make both shows a joy to watch.
Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret on Once Upon a Time
Such a bold, strong Snow White and a properly stylish school teacher Mary Margaret she deserves some recognition. And her skin, her sleek hair! She’s gorgeous.
Applause applause, grand musical finale, the end. So, what award category do you think is missing and who deserves it?
