Emmy Noms 2009

July 16, 2009 — Leave a comment

Always the ubber long nomination lists… – I’m not much of an Emmy knower, but it’s always good to keep track. Plus, Neil Patrick Harris is hosting x) – I’ll watch it if only for him, maybe he’ll throw in a Dr. Horrible joke. LOL

Apparently, Tina Fey’s got 22 nods!!! – though I haven’t counted yet…
there are really too many categories… xD

Drama Series
Big Love
Breaking Bad
Damages
Dexter (woohoo!!)
House M.D
Lost
Mad Men

Comedy Series
Entourage
Family Guy (buahaha)
Flight of the Conchords
How I Met your Mother
The Office
30 Rock
Weeds (weeee)

Made-for-TV Movie
Coco Chanel
Grey Gardens (only one seen O.o)
Into the Storm
Prayers for Bobby
Taking Chance

And a hell yeah! for Toni Collette for getting a Best Comedy Actress, alongside Weeds’ Mary-Louise Parker, 30 Rock’s Tina Fey (!!) xD – Sarah Silverman (for the Sarah Silverman Program), Samantha Who’s’ Christina Applegate, and The New Adventures of Old Christine’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Hell Yeahz! for Dexter’s Michael C. Hall (!!), Hugh Laurie for House – I’m sorry but I would love to be an ass such as him, if only I were that talented. LOL – And OMG! Jim Parsons!!!! I don’t watch The Big Bang Theory, but I love Sheldon!!! Ha! – and I see some conflict of interest here… but Neil Patrick Harris for Best Supporting Comedy! xD

And OMG! Supporting Comedy Actress! Kristin Chenoweth for Pushing Daisies (!!!!!), Amy Poehler, Kristin Wiig, Jane Krakowski, Weeds’ Elizabeth Perkins, and Vanessa Williams. Interesting category.

Pushing Daisies also got 4 other nods! (for makeup, hairstyle, costume and art direction) !!! (t=5)

Dexter got one extra for Jimmy Smith as guest actor. (t=3)

Weeds got 3 other nods! (for casting, cinematography, and sound mixing) (t=6)

United States of Tara got 3 other nods! (for casting, main title design and main title theme) (t=4)

And Stewie must be over the moon with Family Guy getting a Best Comedy – talk about a comeback after being cancelled.

… Now if only they’d begin getting rid off region restrictions, I’d die of happiness~~~

According to this article at Derby LA Times;

Showtime will continue with their innovating Emmy campaign by allowing Emmy voters to watch episodes of Emmy-contenders online through a portal exclusively for them. They get like a Showtime voting kit in the mail, where they get a code which they can use to access.

This is after they got 21 nods last time when they were doing a similar campaign. With the code, they apparently get some episodes from shows… normally 3. They will be getting the first three episodes of United States of Tara, the first two episodes and season finale of Weeds Season 4, first two episodes of The Tudors Season 3, episodes 5 and 10 of Dexter Season 3 (the one with Miguel finally getting Dexter’s trust, and the one in which that cycle gets completed LOL), and the first episode and finale of The L Word Season 6 (and final season) – which by the way makes kind of sense. In my opinion those episodes where shot the best, and I said that you could watch those two and wouldn’t be missing anything~~~ LOL

The Launch
The Progress

The next idea should be ‘no region’, right? xD

SAG Nominations 2009!

December 19, 2008 — Leave a comment

Sorry for the late LATE post. I’ve been watching WALL-E for the 5th time… LOL – Special 3-disc DVD edition is pretty cool. Totally worth it if you’re an animation/film fan… maybe not so much as a family DVD.

Nominations weren’t much of a surprise though, were they? Perhaps biggest snub, Leonardo DiCaprio? And DOUBLE nom for Kate Winslet!! LOL Big announcement for Doubt with 5 nominations, leading… followed by Milk and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with 3 nods. exclamation!! And The Dark Knight, Frost/Nixon and Slumdog Milionaire with 2.

On the television front… 5 shows lead with 3 nominations (30 Rock included…), and 7 follow with 2 nominations (including House, Dexter and Weeds). Check the full nominees here.

SAG will be announced on Jan. 25th 2009 on TNT.

2008-2009

Where is the Milk LUV? And The Dark Knight LUV? I truly thought that Milk would score a Best Picture Drama, and some other awards…

Is the GG people who nominate a little… mo’phobe? Just saying… isn’t GG aired in ABC? Anyway, there is definitely more ‘conservative’ choosing of films in this one… at least in the drama category.

Click here for the complete of nominees, which include:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Doubt, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, Revolutionary Road, Slumdog Millionaire, Vicky Cristina Barcelona… in the film categories. And~~~ 30 Rock, Dexter, House, Weeds in the TV categories…

And a nomination for Catherine Keener for Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Made-for-TV Film, in the film An American Crime (which she starred with Ellen Page!) and totally FREAKED me out.

I just find it a bit odd that Critics’ Choice Awards have been pretty much different to these nominees… MORE NOMINATIONS and WINNERS in the following weeks~~~

And how is it that Waltz with Bashir gets a Best Foreign nod, and not a Best Animated Feature? Waltz with Bashir > Bolt or Kung Fu Panda.
