8:24 Is the banter this year particularly bland?
8:25 Bob Newhart dies! hahahahahahahahahah Conan funny.
8:27 Blythe Danner wins? She looks a lot like Gwyenth Paltrow. Their agents should introduce them…maybe cast them as mother/daughter in something or big sister/little sister.

8:44 Colbert Report vs. Daily Show? oooh…comedu central’s hallways must ahve been teeming with tension.
8:45 Were they just frenching on tv? And by they I mean Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. And by frenching I mean acting very, very gay.
[Not that there’s anything wrong with that.]
[Gayness, I mean. Frenchhood remains as problematic as ever.]
8:46 Hey, it’s the guy that broke up with Carrie via post-it!
8:47 Yay! Cloris Leachman!
8:48 How short is Leslie Jordan? has to be a record for one who does not actually qualify as a “little person.”
8:49 Uhh…comedies have directors? Who knew? Not me. I guess this is why we have the Emmy’s.
8:50 I think Bob Newhart is totally going to die in there!
8:51 I remember Arrested Development. Good show. Wow, My Name Is Earl is just cleanin’ up, ain’t it?
8:51 Grandma boobie-shaking?! Awesome.

9:13 Has Conan ever done the Oscar’s? Accountants are funny.
9:14 Is Wentworth Miller a black guy?

9:17 “The new Golden Age of Television”? Ok.
9:18 Could I be more bored doing something I don’t have to do? I don’t think so.
9:19 BROOKLYN! I dream of being a writer instead of being there, don’t see me going on and on about it.
9:24 My dream is to write banter for awards shows. There. I said it.
9:25 Has tonight’s show been especially British? Yes, love. What colour is the loo in the lift?
9:26 Howie Mandel says: “Good luck, Oprah.” I dunno…I wanna punch him.
9:29 Not so random thought: All directing, writing, design, and technical Emmys should be given out…not at all.
9:31 Steve Colbert hates Jon Stewart sooo much. I can see it in his eyes. Sleep with one eye open, Jon!
9:37 More Brits. Hugh Laurie funny. HAHAHHAHAH…hahahahahhah “imposible” “poof cinque” I wonder if the House producers told him to speak French, so that House fans wouldn’t know that he was British? Goodness knows, he fooled Ken!

9:51 Uhh…where’s Tori in this tribute to Aaron Spelling?
9:52 What’s on Heather Locklear’s hand? It’s like a rat, but made out of diamonds. Dude. Joan Collins…get over yourself. The rest of us have. There’s Tori! Look at her all poor and disinherited.

Oh no…Richard Pryor is finally dead! Wait…why’d they have to show him in a jail cell?
10:36 Calista FLOCKHART IS COMING BACK TO TELEVISION? What’s the sound of a billion shoulders shrugging. I will say that her banter with the guy from the Drew Carey show is the best of the night. “I was hoping you’d go ass over tit.”
10:37 Check-out the pronounciation on Calista.
10:38 Hold up…she named her son August?

OK, did you guys see the evil President boozing it up in the audience during Kieffer’s speech?? Did Kieffer just thank that “Sir, that I do”? Oh, this is so gonna refuel those Perez Hilton “Kieffer’s gay” rumours. Damn it. I mean rumors. Stupid British Emmys.
10:52 WHAT! THE.OFFICE.? THE OFFICE? The office? I would like to take this opportunity to say that even though the Emmys suck ass, the office still sucks more.
10:54 Anette Bening? How’d she get that honor? She probably doesn’t even own a television.
10:55 24 wins, but I am still queasy from the Office winning.
10:58 Well, folks…that’s it the Emmys came in on time…under actually and so, I’m done. See you next year.

    Crap totally missed them! Arrested Development didn’t win anything? How is that possible?!!

  2. Karol Says:

    “8:43 My HDTV makes Heidi Klum look fat.”

    I believe the term is “pregnant”.

  3. Chugarte Says:

    I have no idea if you are serious about the Blythe Danner comment.

  4. dawn summers Says:

    Of course I’m serious, she totally looks like an older gwen. it’s uncanny.

    karol…oh, didn’t know that. i mean i’ve heard the term, she didn’t realize she was. again.

  5. Alceste Says:

    Given her professed her desire to crank out babies for Seal – you should probably just assume she’s pregnant if you see her at some point in the next 5 years…

  6. Chugarte Says:


  7. Karol Says:

    I think she knows Bylthe Danner is Gwenyth’s mother. Right?

  8. Chugarte Says:

    Their agents should introduce them

    I’m not so sure. That’s why I made the comment above.

  9. dawn summers Says:

    At the poker table, we have a phrase for when your raise is called by seven people. You smile and pleasantly say “that’s table respect, right there, folks.”

    hahahahahahahahahaaha In that vein, “that’s faith in Dawn people.”
