And the Emmy goes to...

Eight Things I Learned From the Emmy’s
1. Celebrity dudes are short. I actually kind of knew that.. I’ve read that Tom Cruise is only 5’7”, but when Heidi Klum walked out with four other reality hosts…she towered over all of them. She’s 5’9 ½’ and the average American man’s height is 5’10”. (I bet you didn’t think you could learn from my blog, did you?)
2. Steve Carell doesn’t even have to talk to make me laugh.
3. Steve Martin looks almost exactly the same as he did on SNL over 25 years ago.
4. Steven Colbert eating prunes makes me giggle.
5. If you want your child to be a comedian, name him Steve!
6. If you are a guest on 30 Rock, you’ll probably be nominated for an Emmy!
7. Denis Leary looks a bit like Josh Todd, lead singer of Buckcherry (see my previous post for picture).
8. Josh Groban can impersonate the voices of South Park characters?!

Some Picks and Some Actual Winners (Go to Entertainment Tonight for all the winners. Who do I look like, Mary Hart?)
Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
My Pick: Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) - In his character, Barney’s words, He’s AWESOME!
Winner: Jeremy Piven - I’ve actually stood next to him when I was an extra in his short-lived TV series, Cupid. He’s short, too! (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
My Pick: Amy Poehler (SNL) - She just plain cracks me up!

Best Actress in a Comedy Series

Fashion Wrap Up
Tina Fey looked smokin’, I love Kate Walsh’s sleek new, shorter do, and Vanessa Williams is one of the most beautiful women on this planet! No disses in this wrap up, I seriously think most of the celebrities looked pretty great.

I don't usually watch the Emmy Awards, but I wanted to so I could see Christina Applegate...but I missed it...

I do like to watch the after shows when they show the worst and the best dressed...

Great wrap-up, Kelly. I never watch these shows, but that's because I don't watch TV, so it seems kind of pointless. I usually just look at the pics on Yahoo later.

I totally agree about Steve Carell - he cracks me up no matter what! The thing about Josh Groban is surprising.

I don't watch the screen (other than my laptop) often enough to take any guesses. But I loved Tina Fay as Palin - sorry, she was great on SNL.
