Live Blogging the 2007 Emmy Awards

live emmy blogging 2007

11:09PM: No Brainer of the night. THE SOPRANOS walks away with Outstanding Drama. I’d probably be a bit more emotional had I watched the show.

11:04PM: Tina Fey wants to thank 30 ROCK’s dozens of dozens of viewers. Tina, you’re so welcome. Can’t wait until the second season premiere, which by the way is this October 4 at 8PM. Don’t let 30 ROCK go the way of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. Jump on the bandwagon now!

10:56PM: Shock of the night. James…. waiting for Gandolfini… but no. JAMES SPADER! Seriously. Sleep with one eye open. Gandolfini’s going to be pissed.

10:53PM: America Ferrerra wins…. cue the tear ducts. Mine and hers.

10:41PM: SALLY FIELD and RICKY GERVAIS! Life is Good!

10:39PM: “Ricky Gervais couldn’t be here tonight so instead we’re going to give this to our friend Steve Carrell.” Could I love Stewart, Colbert and Correll anymore?

10:35PM: Colbert and Stewart… thank God… I’m quickly losing Emmy Energy here.

10:20PM: THE OFFICE finally won something. Fellow OFFICE addicts — cancel your suicide plans. It’s all good.

10:13PM: Best line of the night goes to Elaine Stritch. Who’d have thought. “I’m not faking this I really don’t know what the hell is going on.”

10:09PM: TONY BENNETT! Seriously this is getting ridiculous. At least this will give Stewart and Colbert some comedy gold tomorrow night.

10:05PM: Masi Oka’s been spending a little too much time with George Takei. Holy Perfect Annunciation Batman!

9:58PM: Does anyone else vote to cut the EMMY Awards to two hours, and give all the miniseries and movie awards out at the Creative Arts Emmys last week. Seriously, who saw PRIME SUSPECT?

9:55PM: Ryan Seacrest is the Dame Judy Dench of Award Show hosts. He’s had what — 10 minutes of screen time?

9:49PM: How is it that Sally Field at 60ish looks better than most women at thirty?

9:40PM: Jersey Boys or Alvin and the Chipmunks?

9:37PM: Glenn Close, get comfortable. You’re going to be up on stage next year for DAMAGES.

9:26PM: Says Amrie with regards to Tony Bennett’s seemingly unbeatable win streak, “I think he’s got mob connections. it’s the whole sopranos thing.”

9:15PM: David Chase wins what will no doubt be the first of many farewell we love you awards for THE SOPRANOS. I probably should start watching the show.

9:11PM: To quote my friend Emmy Bud: Hayden Panettiere… Prom Queen gone bad? Could Neal Patrick Harris be any cooler?

9:05PM: Rumor Patrol: Anyone else think Milo and Hayden are dating? Amrie does!

8:57PM: Memo to ‘future me.’ If I’m ever nominated for an Emmy against legendary actor Robert Duvall. Don’t waste anytime writing an acceptance speech! Like anyone else had a chance.

8:50PM: Oh Ryan Seacrest is back! Who else forget he was hosting?

8:40PM: Katherin Heigl’s asking price just went up A LOT.

8:29PM: I’m back after enhaling a quick burger and fries. Anyone else thrilled nobody from TWO AND A HALF MEN have won thus far?

8:16PM: TERRY O’QUINN! WOW! That is fantastic ans so well deserved.

8:03PM: FAMILY GUY opens the show by completely slamming television, with special attention to NBC’s struggles… interesting approach. And by interesting, I of course mean somewhat insulting and tastless. I guess the show can only improve from here.

7:49PM: Charlie Sheen just quoted the late great John Spencer…. I will now pause my continual ripping of TWO AND A HALF MEN. Tonight only.

7:43PM: Commercial thoughts. You could not PAY me to eat KFC chicken cheese fries.

7:36PM: Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell, hottest couple ever? If nature has a sense of humour, their kids will look really really ugly. Mabye like this.

7:30PM: Not surprisingly, Neal Patrick Harris suited up!

7:25PM: Vanessa Williams looks awesome. A mother a four, probably in her forties, yet looks twenty. Only in Hollywood.

7:20PM: T-Minus forty minutes until showtime. Time for the most important decision you’ll be making all night — No, not your Emmy pics. What food are you ordering/eating at tonight’s party? This TV Addict will be serving food from Toronto’s best burger joint BURGER SHACK.

7:09PM: Kristen Bell… and the cast of HEROES! Bell she has an awesome super power. Yes, soon the world will know what VERONICA MARS fans have known for three years. Kristen Bell = Awesome.

7:03PM: Julia Louis Dreyfus confirms why I”ll never be a supermodel, explaining how she looks so great, “hard work and healthy eating”… d’oh

6:58PM: Portia De Rossi is on Ellen’s arm. Moment of silence for ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.

6:32PM: Kathie Griffin brought Steve Wozniak as her date to the Emmys. For those of you who don’t speak nerd, Wozniak is the founder of APPLE Computer! Question: What is sadder? That I know who Wozniak is, or that Seacrest doesn’t?

6:25PM: Speaking of objectifying woman — How many times is Ryan Seacrest going to sexually harass the woman he’s interviewing? Ryan, we get it. You’re totally straight.

6:23PM: TV Addict Best Dressed List: Could Ali Larter look any better? Forget dual personality, her new superpower — getting dressed.

6:18PM: If you were Rainn Wilson’s Prom Date…. comment below. Yes we’re talking to you Kathie. Is anyone else weirded out by the fact that OFFICE superfan, the woman behind GMMR is also named Kathie. Umm.. Kathie, is there something you’re not telling us?


7:06PM: Julia Louise Dreyfus confirms while I’ll never have the body of a supermodel explaining, “I eat nothing and work out.”…. D’oh.

6:58PM: Portia De Rossi is on Ellen’s arm. Moment of silence for ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.

6:32PM: Kathie Griffin brought Steve Wozniak as her date to the Emmys. For those of you who don’t speak nerd, Wozniak is the founder of APPLE Computer! Question: What is sadder? That I know who Wozniak is, or that Seacrest doesn’t?

6:25PM: Speaking of objectifying woman — How many times is Ryan Seacrest going to sexually harass the woman he’s interviewing? Ryan, we get it. You’re totally straight.

6:23PM: TV Addict Best Dressed List: Could Ali Larter look any better? Forget dual personality, her new superpower — getting dressed.

6:18PM: If you were Rainn Wilson’s Prom Date…. comment below. Yes we’re talking to you Kathie. Is anyone else weirded out by the fact that OFFICE superfan, the woman behind GMMR is also named Kathie. Umm.. Kathie, is there something you’re not telling us?

6:15PM: While the ‘official’ Live Blogging doesn’t start until 8PM (t-minus 1hr and 45min), I find myself somewhat surprised by how entertaining Ryan Seacrest is on the red carpet. Hmmm… perhaps tonight’s award show won’t be as painful as some are expecting.

    Um….When they said James Spader, I thought Kate Walsh had messed up.
    WOW.

    Good for America Ferrera, though – she totally deserved it (to be fair, I would have been happy with any of the Comedy Actress noms having won it).

    I’m ticked about the weird audio “problems” they keep having…

    They cut away during Sally Field’s great speech.

    Wow… 30 Rock. I would not have guessed against all that competition!

    For best comedy…

    Sopranos for best drama was no shocker. heh

  • http://jecoup9587.blogspot.com jecoup

    Sopranos won, no surprise. How I wish Lost and Friday Night Lights was there to make things more exciting

  • http://whatisthegfor.vox.com Tim G.

    Quite a few wins I was happy for.

    Just as the best actor award was about to be announced “I’d love for Spader to take this away from Gandolfini, but we all know that’s not gonna…” “JAMES SPADER!”
