The Emmys Were Terrific Just Kidding (PHOTO RECAP)

The most important fact we should take away from Sunday's Emmys ceremony—and hopefully the ONE FACT future archaeologists will note when they unearth a laser disc of this travesty—is that A LOT of very talented, deserving actors won Emmys this year. Credit where credit's due: Both the nominations and winners in the acting categories were well-selected, and if an Emmy statuette is worth at least a bump in pay, then some awesome people just got raises. VICTORY!

With that said, this Emmy ceremony was practically unwatchable! Now, I have a pretty high tolerance for bad TV of almost any genre. But there is truly nothing worse than bad comedy, and the Emmys were filled to the brim with it. You're not SNL, Emmys! STOP trying to be funny and START being shorter.

Anyway, the longest three hours of my life opened on a shot of the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. If you recall, only a few weeks ago there was a similarly terrible event held here called the MTV Video Music Awards. Remember what THAT stage looked like?

But guess what? The Emmys had to go and make their stage even GROSSER.

Well-played Emmys! In case you don't see what I'm talking about, here's a hint: At one point Charlie Sheen came out of that.

Also, the dangling, metallic vaginas hanging over Jane Lynch's head? Kind of on-the-nose, don't you think? So right off the bat, you could tell the Emmys were working blue!

Unfortunately, the aggressively overwhelming comedic sensibility of the evening was firmly in the vein of "Don't Ask Why." So, like, I guess Leonard Nimoy is the President of Television? Don't worry, that conceit won't go anywhere, just roll with it.

Also, there is a building where all of the TV shows happen? Did you nearly fall off your chair with laughter when you saw that? Go to the hospital, you're ill, because that was insane in a boring way.

In the style of mash-up comedy perfected in such films as Date Movie and Meet the Spartans, the Emmys were like, "juxtaposing different pop culture things = comedy." Here are all the Mad Mens in costume having a conversation about cell phones?

Some of the grown men from Friday Night Lights were asked to half-heartedly reprise their roles for eight seconds.

I'm not sure who thought this one up. At this point I was HOPING it was just a paid product placement because at least then I could wrap my brain around it. The Verizon guy is definitely not funny in 2011 and also has never been funny?

Then Jane Lynch threw a slurpee on herself? I felt like I was ON DRUGS you guys.

Also, is it now the law that every awards show must start with an ironic musical dance number? When was the last time there was an UNironic musical dance intro for an awards show? 1974? So does this qualify as irony anymore? Thanks for spending fifteen minutes doing a stupid thing and trying to make us believe you're above it.

Five talented people and Wilmer Valderrama were forced to do these terrible, unfunny songs throughout the night. Felt so bad for them. Taraji P. Henson is an Oscar-nominated actress! This was the most embarrassing thing she's had to do since that Tyler Perry movie.

A couple of late-night talk show rivals came out and wrestled on stage and pretended to embarrass each other. It was fine except who cares? Also, I should mention that their microphones were insanely echo-y and the audience wasn't mic'd at all, so it was a super pleasant audio experience basically.

OH, and this is maybe the WORST, but whenever a winner walked to the stage, a voiceover dude would rattle off like five horribly random "jokes" that seemed like they were written by the Family Guy Manatees. It was crazy-unbearable.

Some chunky lady beat Kristen Wiig for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy.

Julianna Margulies came out and WHISPERED like five minutes of Rodney Dangerfield's worst comedy routine. It was very funny, the crickets were really into it.

Ty Burrell won a thing.

Ricky Gervais appeared via satellite because he is THAT important. Also, his particular flavor of joke was the "cut to similar-sounding dirty word" kind. Worked out great, really brought the house down. (No houses were brought down ever.)

One after another, formerly likable celebrities were beaten into submission by the teleprompter. It was just an awkward mess.

As Mindy Kaling pointed out, Conan O'Brien was like an audience surrogate basically.

The dudes from Modern Family continued that show's winning streak by loudly congratulating themselves for basing the show on their own zany lives.

Then Billie Jean King came out and made this face while, I guess, attempting to wish Two and a Half Men luck this season? I vaguely remember there being some controversy about all this, but I've spent the last year banging my head with a tennis racquet in the hopes of erasing such memories.

Louis C.K. did not win Best Actor in a Comedy, but hopefully he consoled himself with the knowledge that he and his show are THE BEST.

Hmm, who was that total, perfect stranger Jim Parsons was seated next to and completely ignored upon winning this statuette? I guess we'll never know! #2011

That's not to say there weren't highlights to the evening, it's just that most of them were Amy Poehler and Melissa McCarthy-related. For instance, when a freshly painted mannequin and Sandra Bullock's drag impersonator came out to announce Best Actress in a Comedy, Amy Poehler immediately rushed the stage upon hearing her name.

Then Melissa McCarthy barged right on up beside her with this look on her face, like she was NOT about to be outdone.

Pretty soon ALL of the nominees were up there. And while it's probably a thing they had planned (the producers didn't show clips of their performances) it was still weirdly the most electric moment of the night. People holding hands on a stage!

It didn't take long for Don Cheadle, and then we the audience, to realize that these are six INCREDIBLE actresses. Look at that lineup! The resulting standing ovation was both spontaneous and heartfelt, and it was one of the very few times during the night when it seemed like television was ACTUALLY being honored.

The look on Melissa McCarthy's face when she won was so perfect. She looked almost sick she was so shocked—like genuine shock that human beings can sometimes feel, not like Taylor Swift shock. I don't care much for Mike & Molly, but Melissa McCarthy deserves only good things. Hopefully this Emmy will give her the confidence to get a better gig!

More juxtaposition humor, this time with TV celebrities mixed up in The Office. Here's what it looked like when Jesse delivered drugs to Creed.

Also, here's a camera testimonial by the female lead from Lars and the Real Girl.

Here's some dude who is VERY bohemian and VERY cool and is only RELUCTANTLY accepting eight-figures to work three days a week.

The lady from The Big Bang Theory had a good "drama face" when she introduced the Best Reality Show and Best Writers Room or whatever. David Spade's hair looked great.

The Daily Show won a bunch of these, just like every year.

Then The Lonely Island came out and did their thing, which in the context of the laugh-free zone that is the Emmys was a VERY WELCOME THING. They performed a medley of some of their hottest hits, including "Jack Sparrow."

The best was how badly applied Michael Bolton's costume was. He was really singin' it though. Props! (Kudos.)

Ed Helms, Maya Rudolph and Uncle Jesse did impersonations of SNL characters.

All in all, I was NOT complaining about how weird it all was. Not feeling bored is one of my favorite feelings.

But then Ian Somerhalder came out and acted so dumb. He was, like, rolling his eyes about the presence of Michael Bolton? Seriously dude? Very cool of you. Way to get it. I hope Ian Somerhalder's mullet gets caught in an escalator.

Seeing as Anna Paquin is no taller than 4'11 TOPS, I'm suddenly concerned that Scott Caan has that same disease as Simon Birch? Get well soon, guy!

Then more of this.

This was heartbreaking.

Margo Martindale won an Emmy for Justified! That was not expected! It was kind of great how she casually mentioned that her character gets murdered. Good thing we're all caught up, right??

Loretta Devine was like, "Yeah, what of it?"

Martin Scorsese won for whatever. Who knows? Boardwalk Empire maybe? I don't know. I would be willing to bet even HE didn't make it through the whole first season of that show.

Kerry Washington and her friend looked SO PISSED. I was all looking around like, "What did I do??" For what it's worth, I AM SORRY, Kerry Washington. (Assuming you ARE Kerry Washington and not just Christina Ricci playing a prank.)

Peter Dinklage won for Game of Thrones, which he definitely deserves, even if his dialect coach should probably lose his job.

Did anyone else get CHILLS when they saw this ad for the new batch of celebrity-directed Lifetime movies that are about to air? What kind of sick, twisted journey is Jennifer Aniston going to take us on?? I bet it's like two straight hours of that canal scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Anyway, then there was more "comedy," this time on the very timely subject of New Jersey-themed reality shows. Featuring cameos by the cast of Jersey Shore and that one dude from The Sopranos who got killed off way early but still makes a career out of having been on The Sopranos. It was deadly unfunny, but I will admit that it DID make me smile ONCE, and that's when Jane Lynch's character rubbed Cheeto dust on her face for makeup.

I'm not sure how Katie Holmes has managed to get camera time at every single live awards event of the past year, but something needs to be done.

Our friendly neighborhood crafter swiped the Best Actress in a Drama award from Connie Britton. It's cool, though, The Good Wife is deserving enough, I guess.

Quick question: Is it at all realistic that the new Charlie's Angels won't be terrible? Remember how in the movies there were three funny actresses in the cast and the scripts were insane? This one looks sub-syndication levels of boring. Oh well, these ladies seem nice enough, plus it was really charming how loud they squealed when they announced KYLE CHANDLER WOO WOO WOO'S name.

Coach Taylor was the best. Friday Night Lights was the best. He forgot to thank his wife and/or Connie Britton, then remembered and attempted to but the music drowned him out. I loved their reactions:

These are people who like each other. It seems kinda refreshing, you know?

This happened. Not sure why. I was completely transfixed by Paula Abdul's body-to-head size ratio. Was this a deleted scene from Rise of the Planet of the Apes?

I loved when Amy Poehler and Melissa McCarthy were objectifying male actors, telling them to show more skin in order to win awards, and when Amy said something like "show the hollow of your neck" Melissa McCarthy just nodded, "Girl." Can they be in more things together (like, my circle of friends for instance? J/K I don't have friends [YET])??

A dude in lavendar glasses came out and told everyone to stop having fun. TOO LATE. It was time for the In Memorium montage!

Then these jokers came out—The Canadian Tenors (LOL)—and they sang a cover of Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." The performance was completely unnecessary, obviously, but also the montage itself looked like the saddest screensaver ever made:

See you on the other side, AW! Same to you Leslie Nielsen. Guys, I'm so anti-death. Please everyone STOP doing it.

Anna Torv and David Boreanaz were there, whether they knew it or not.

Guy Pearce won for Best Actor in a Miniseries for Mildred Pierce and his speech included tons of lewd things about Kate Winslet. Sure, whatever. Celebrities have their own rules, you know?

When exactly did Claire Danes start looking so severe? Or is she still in character from Homeland? You can't tell by how they look here, but they're in the middle of a series of jokes about Helen Mirren. Oh you COULD tell? Then you're better at this than I am.

A lot of movie stars won TV acting awards and they did their best to seem flattered. But I bet backstage they were saying tons of catty things to each other about it. "What a dump this awards show is."

You can probably tell just by looking at this guy that his name is Julian Fellowes. RIGHT? His show, Downton Abbey, won tons of awards. Congrats! I will watch that show right after I finish Season 1 of Teen Wolf.

More serious actors doing their best.

The Mad Men dude and one hundred thousand of his closest friends took the stage to graciously accept America's love for Mad Men. "Kind of makes the attempted ruination of Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead seem sort of worth it, you know?" —AMC

Gwyneth Paltrow came out and did two things: (1) She proved that skeletal waifs can have muffin top and (2) she "winged it" without a teleprompter. And by "winged it" she basically said nothing and then introduced the nominees. I guess she never once read the script for tonight? Or is her memory so fried from Coldplay songs? Who knows? Nobody and certainly not me.

Obviously Modern Family won because it is a mass-appeal show with just the slightest amount of edge to feel fresh, and that's fine. It's just fine as a show! But you know who's NOT just fine as a person? This dude. He told a very charming story about how he was once complimented for making such an Important Show that teaches Tolerance, and then he proceeded to AGREE with that compliment using the smuggest expression of self-satisifaction anyone has ever seen. But you know what? Good job, guy. You are definitely a world-changing millionaire. Go forth!

All in all, Jane Lynch was a tolerable, if disappointing presence. (Sorry, Seth!) Her occasional zingers were mostly lost in a mess of bad quip-writing and sub-MadTV sketches. I don't mean to be a hater—She's Jane Lynch! She's been in tons of awesome things! Just not lately, unfortunately. All these Emmys and Glees and Two and Half Mens are putting her perilously close to Please Go Away territory. Be careful, girl!


QUESTIONS:
... Who was your favorite winner?
... What was your favorite "funny" moment?
... Who had the more vulgar stage, the Emmys or the VMAs?
... How awesome is Cobie Smulders for skipping that curtain call??

I didn't hate the Emmy's. It was better than a few of the award shows hosted by Ricky Gervais or David Letterman or Alec Baldwin. Basically any award show since the last time Billy Crystal hosted has been crap. But Jane Lynch did the best she could with what she had. I hated that Modern Family won so much. Please! Like that show is so freaking great! And why exactly did Mad Men win best drama show? Blah! I loved Melissa McCartney's expression when she won. And the look that one girl gave Kate Winslet when she won. If looks could rip flesh off bone..... hahaha!

THX for this photo-recap. This is becomming a very enjoyable trend for those of us who can't see it and have to make do with a couple of lines in our local newspaper.

So, this navel-staring lasted 3 hours???!!! TORTURE! It's incredible how a couple of well chosen pictures with a little comment can expose the ridicule of it all...!

Talking about trends : what's up with all those 'metallic' dresses? They look horrible. Sorry Jane.

So what we can take away from all this is that the article's author is content with people believing that he's a fourteen year-old who learned to write from a room full of LOLcats. As difficult as it was to read about an overlong endeavor trying to too hard to be funny through the medium of an overlong endeavor trying to too hard to be funny (wait, was that deliberate? Good heavens, if this article is actually the world's most subtle style parody, then kudos to the author for his high-concept satire. It didn't work, but it was clever!), it was far worse trying to make my way through the Twitter-style prose. I never thought a generation of teens would choose to rebel against syntax. Several virtual pages of tweet-speak, sentences that ended for no clear reason in question marks, and the occasional misspelling, all used as a delivery system for a cynical skewering of something the flaws of which were already clearly evident has actually overloaded my ability to tolerate the internet. I'm going to go spend the the day sitting in a library with my face against the spines of the beautiful, beautiful books.



I will say this: the article certainly made the Emmys look better by contrast. All the sardonic commentary has caused me to regard the Emmy folks as a bunch of harmless kids just trying to put on an evening of good-natured fun!

The Emmy's are effing dumb. OK, Peter Dinklage deserved his award same with parsons but WTF were they thinking not giving the best drama to either Game of Thrones or Boardwalk. MadMen is boring as shit. And the best actor in a drama series...let's face the facts we all know it should have gone to Michael C. Hall or Steve Buschemi

I always enjoy the pre-taped comedy sketches they do at the Emmy's, it's the only reason I watch them. Maybe not always that funny, but definitely the most entertaining parts of the night. A bit harsh on Downton Abbey don't you think? Maybe the reason it one so many awards was because it was, in fact, good? You didn't comment on my favourite line of the night:



Jane Lynch: A lot of people wonder why I'm a lesbian. Here's the cast of Entourage!

@Jbirth92: I agree this post is more like a series of random brain farts than anything else, but who are we to say that TV.com has to be constructive and balanced in every post? Everyone has the right to go a little crazy here and there, and a sarcastic rant like this post isn't too bad imo. So long as the regular level of writing is also maintained, I have no problems with it. Now then, when's the new Breaking Bad article appearing?



Oh, and about the Emmys: The awards are at the same time the most important for tv, aswell as pretty silly. The winners in no way represent the shows that are most loved and there's always a lot of high quality stuff missing from the winners list. I usually just check the results the following morning, only to be disappointed each year.

Hi, I get your point, I enjoy some of those "crzay" TV.com articles, but I just think there is so much to be analysed and criticized about the emmys, that writing this stupid article about it is a waste of time. They could have made this article and then another article with opinion and analysis, in my opinion...



I completely agree with you about de "sillyness" of the emmys. There are so many great shows and actors missing from the nominations (Treme, John Noble, The Wire, Six Feet Under, the best show I have ever seen, never won...) so yes, there's always disappointment, but I still think this is an important event for television...



Greetings from Portugal and sorry for the bad english

I don't even know where to start... It's so sad that a prestigious television site such as TV.com publishes an article about one of the most important award shows of the year, and one of the most important night of the year for TV, and all the article manages to express is the massive amount of stupidity and ignorance Price Peterson has in his head.

You want my opinion? This was an average show, neither awful nor excellent, basically beacause Jane Lynch didn't really impress and those singers (the guy form Chuck and the girl from HIMYM, etc.) were just a bad idea. But the show wasn't that bad, there were good speeches, bad speeches, presenters of all type, a few suprises... I mean, what did you expect?

But that's not even the point I really want to make! The point is that you, Price, as a writer for TV.com, should not only analyse the show itself (speeches, presenters, etc.) but also express your opinion about the ones who won and the ones who lost, for example, if Mad Men deserves to win four consecutive emmys for best drama( in my opinion Breaking Bad should have won last year and Boardwalk this year), if Connie Britton or Steve Carrel should have won for their final seasons, if Jim Parsons does a better job than Louie C.K., if Modern Family deserves basically every comedy emmy, and things like that. Basically, you should talk about TELEVISON, and express constructtive and justified opinions, and instead, it seems that, all due respect, you smoked a joint and started writing one of the most ridiculous, meaningless things I have ever read in my life.

And it's sad, beacuse I really like the work TV.com does, but sometimes articles like this (the one about Dexter's supporting actors for example) really makes me mad!

So, Price, i'm so sorry about you and all the amount of S*** that navigates through your little animated head. "Get well soon, guy!"



PS: Im portuguese, sorry for the eventual spelling or grammar mistakes. See you

Who pee'd in your cherrios? Normally I love your recaps and find you hilarious and mostly dead on but you really missed the mark on this one. While most award shows are painful to watch I found this one very entertaining and hello they actually ended on time which never happens for award shows. I thought the winners were spot on too! You sound like you're just angry at the world and trying to take it out on everyone else. Pop a midol and chill. Hoping you jump out of this unfunny funk sooner rather than later because I actually really enjoy reading your recaps.

I'm not even a Bolton fan. Seriously , youtube the interview where Ian tries to sell his brother in laws pizza on Kimmel. It's like one long unfunny advertisement starring the guy who has always played the douche but now plays a vampire douche-- so people like him...

Julianna's dress was horrible it looked like she glued those glass or whatever things on it! And Ian is amazing person who has devoted all of his free time to help protect the planet, maybe you don't like who he plays on VD but it's not fair to judge him from 1 or 2 appearances on tv/talk shows (sorry really don't mean to sound rude)

I agree that it wasn't that good. I also didn't think it sucked a lot. Maybe a little bit? Certainly disappointed in Joel McHale and Cobie Smulders (yes, props for skipping the final bit) for participating in that awful stuff. That "Can you hear me now?" guy was so random and unfunny. I guess they thought random = funny? I guess my favorite funny moment was The Office skit thing with other actors and singers and whore doing stuff, especially Jesse Pinkman.

It really wasn't that bad. I'm in the rare position of agreeing with the seldom distinguished NeeUyank (charming moniker). Price, you obviously approached this reviewing gig with the specific intent to find as many flaws as possible, and then satirize those flaws with a cleverly titled picture recap. Your blatant cynicism is usually your most charming quality (vis-a-vis, The Vampire Diaries), but this time, it just felt a tad spiteful. That being said, "Five talented people and Wilmer Valderrama" - That burn is Gervais-esque. Nicely done.

Not to offend but I really don't understand how people can bitch when the Emmys are on, but during the rest of the year, when your favourite actor gives a great performance, you demand they get an Emmy. Make up your minds, people.

My favorite winner was Julianna Margulies. WTH is wrong with you, Price? I mean really, WTH is wrong with you? Don't get me wrong, Connie Britton is an amazing actress and she deserves an Emmy but Julianna Margulies KILLED IT on The Good WIfe this year. She was sensational. No one more deserving.



Night wasn't very funny. But Jane was funny enough. The only hilarious moment was when she hugged Snooki in that comedy bit and said "You are my chosen one." That and when Snooki said she went to Harvard LOL



VMA stage was way worse.



I fast forwarded through most of the show(except when Jane was on or when people I liked won), so I don't know what you're referring to about Cobie Smulders.

After seeing David Spade and Kaley Cuoco presenting together, I thought there would be some kind of "8 Simple Rules"/"Hey, we've worked together in the past," type of connection, but alas, there wasn't. I must admit, I was a little disappointed about that. I'm happy for "Modern Family" - one of the best series on TV right now. Also, congrats to Jim Parsons. I've been a "Big Bang" fan since episode one. I wish "The Middle" had been nominated for something, but at least, 2 out of my 3 favorite shows won Emmys!
