Emmys are always an afterthought here, mainly because we don’t have much time to keep up with all series, so we’re kind of at a loss when it comes to television awards. But alas, that doesn’t stop new nominations coming in~~~

The miniseries The Pacific leads nominations with 24, but if we’re talking about series… Well, Glee is leading that one list with 19 nominations – 2 nominations ahead of Mad Men (17), 4 ahead of 30 Rock (15), and 5 ahead of Modern Family (14). For the summary list check this PDF out from Emmys.tv

Other series nominated… Lost (12), The Good Wife (9), Nurse Jackie (8), Dexter (7) and House M.D (3) ~

Happy Chinese New Year!

Yes, it’s your favorite movie to hate. LOL

We’ve got a very cool issue this month, but I’m not gonna ramble what’s in it.
Just head over here to download it and read it.

These were announced on December, LOL
And I didn’t even post on 2008 xD

But the Satellite Awards were out, sadly Toni Collete lost Best Actress Comedy in favor of Lea Michelle on Glee. And Toni lost her SAG nod… that means I got 2/4. Damn.

Anyway, I dunno how popular the Satellite is, but they do have some wacky choices.

First of all, there was no Avatar. Praise Geezus. LOL

These are the Top10 2009 Films according to them:

  • (500) Days of Summer

Modern Family

February 1, 2010 — 1 Comment

I had seen a couple of commercials promoting Modern Family, which I thought were kind of funny, so I decided to look the series up and give it a try. It was a surprise to learn that each episode only lasts about 20min. (as a 30min. show, just to show you how much commercials American shows have), but those will be the funniest 20 minutes of your day.

Modern Family just tells the story of that… a modern-day family, starting with Jay (Ed O’Neil) and his second wife Gloria (Colombian actress Sofia Vergara), and her kid… old-soul Manny.

Then there’s Jay’s eldest daughter Claire (Julie Bowen), her loser husband but “cool dad” Phil (Ty Burrell), their 3 kids… not so bright Haley… not so bright Luke… and the one picking on them for not being bright, Alex.

And finally, there’s Jay’s younger son Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), his “mother bear” boyfriend Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), and their newly-adopted Vietnamese baby Lily.

By the first episode, it had me literally laughing at the top of my lungs, which hasn’t happened for a long time. I had so much fun watching it over the weekend, that I’ve already caught up with the 13 first episodes, and I’m waiting for the remaining episodes.

Stonestreet, playing Mitchell’s boyfriend, is hilarious, even though he seems to be kind of normal compared to the rest of the nearly neurotic characters. He also brings balance to Mitchell’s snobbish butt by teaching him to shop at Costco, and is the pissed off gay clown saving Mitchell’s butt at the gas station. He’s my favorite character.

So this is one of the new shows you should be watching… you know, instead of like… Ghost Whisperer or some other bad show.
