Sarah Jessica, my idol ...
My thoughts about Emmy, and I was batting like .785. Arrested Development foiled me a little, but that's because I'm so blindly devoted to Sex and the City.
Things I was happy about:
Sarah Jessica (not so happy about her speech however)
Meryl's speech (the win was a given)
JAMES SPADER (how awesome to hear James, think Gandolfini, and then hear Spader. To love him is to watch Secretary)
Mary Louise Parker, who would be my secret lesbian crush if I went that way
Drea de Matteo + speech
The Sopranos finally winning the award they should have won years ago
Things I was not so happy about:
Allison Janney, but I think she wasn't that happy about it either. Poor Marskita Hargay or whatever that woman from L&O SVU's name is.
Where the hey was Nip/Tuck, one of the very best shows on television. Ditto Deadwood.
Elaine Stritch, who I find incredibly irritating, but then she's also sort of hilarious, so it's a toss-up. Still she beat Ellen, and I may have to hold a grudge about that.
"It's not the way I would have gone, but okay," David Hyde Pierce on his Best Supporting Actor nod for the last season of Frasier.
"Often even I think I'm overrated ... but not tonight," the always awesome, graceful and grateful Meryl Streep on winning a category no one else should have even bothered entering.
I wondered if I would miss covering the Emmys and going to the parties afterwards. Verdict: A little. I was doing lots of cooking and watching it on TV, and I have to say, that wasn't a bad way to spend an evening either.
