Emmy Awards

Television Shows Sweep Emmys for 66th Consecutive Year

Congratulations, television, you did it!

This has got to be some sort of record. For the 66th year in a row, TV shows won every single award at the Primetime Emmy Awards last night.

Some of the winners were comedies, like Modern Family (Best Comedy) or Veep (Best Actress). Others were dramas, like Breaking Bad (Best Everything) or True Detective (Best Directing). A few were mini-series, like Sherlock (Best Mini-Series) or American Horror Story (Best Actress). And some were even variety shows, like The Colbert Report (Writing) and Saturday Night Live (Definitely Not Writing).

Which TV show was the biggest winner? That would be Breaking Bad. Though Sherlock took home the most statues, Breaking Bad won for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Writing, and, most importantly, Best Drama. And that’s about right, because it was kinda the best show ever.

But really, TV as a whole was the big winner on the night. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, movies.

The 2014 Emmy Snubs Have Been Announced

Can't Lose if you don't get nominated!

Technically the Television Academy announced the 2014 Emmy nominations today. But really, they might as well have just announced which shows and actors got snubbed, because that’s pretty much all people are talking about.

Of course, the reason for all the snubs is that there are literally so many good shows on television that the Academy can’t possibly nominate them all. But when it’s your favorite show that got snubbed, you don’t want to here that sh*t.

So what was the biggest snub this year? Well, judging by the rage on social media—which is pretty much always right—that would have to be Tatiana Maslany. People don’t seem to mind too much that her show, Orphan Black, got snubbed in the drama category. However, they feel pretty strongly that she should have gotten a nod in the best drama actress category. And they probably have a point, seeing as how she played like two dozen characters.

Other snubs that pissed off the internet? In addition to Orphan Black, neither The Good Wife, Homeland, nor The Americans got nominated for best drama. Meanwhile, over in comedies, Brooklyn Nine-Nine got zilch despite winning the Golden Globe earlier this year, while critical faves like Parks & Recreation and The Mindy Project also got boned.

Oh, it’s worth noting that, for the first time since 1994, The Simpsons didn’t get a nomination for best animated series. And the Academy also did not feel inclined to throw late night legend David Letterman a bone in his final year behind the Late Show desk. Neither he nor his writers got a single nomination.

But okay, fine. Who did get nominated? You can find a complete, printable list right here.

The Awards will be handed out Monday, August 25. They’ll probably be on TV, if your interested.

Haley King and Giada De Laurentiis Highlight the Boobtastic Goodness at Daytime Emmy Awards

There’s a thing called the Daytime Emmy Awards. Think of it as the Emmy Awards, but strictly for unemployed heavier set people who watch a lot of TV during the day. To be fair, that group also includes relatively slender stoners, retired police officers, and working bartenders. Still, it’s mostly shows most people have never heard of winning awards. Talk shows, judge shows, soaps, cooking and lifestyle shows, and yadda yadda yadda.

BUT, there is definitely something to be said for the hotness of some of the winners and attendees over the weekend, most notably the boobtastic faptastic displays put on by young busty Haley King, and veteran cleavetastic queen, Giada de Laurenttis. Both ladies brought some serious chest skin exhibition game to the award show. It’s almost enough to make me want to take up daytime television watching. I do so love my couch and Bugles. Enjoy.

Sofia Vergara Wardrobe Malfunction Exposes Her G-String Crackalicious at Emmy Awards

Hmm, we might not have even known about this glorious functional malfunction from the dress of Sofia Vergara had she not tweeted the images herself. What a gal.

Apparently, the dress could not fully contain the wicked hot veteran thespianic’s Colombian booty and split open enough to reveal the butt crack of a goddess, with only the hint of a g-string to provide any hint of modesty. We have to be honest and admit that we hope for a dress rip every time Sofia Vergara shows up in one of her form fitting, curve highlighting gowns; and, honestly, we’re not the least bit sorry that we do. Enjoy.

Here Are 5 Emmy Moments Funnier Than Anything Jimmy Kimmel Did Last Night

So as it turns out, Jimmy Kimmel kind of sucks at hosting the Emmys. OK, maybe that’s being a tad harsh, but he was just extremely mediocre. There were some pretty humerous skits like Tracy Morgan falling over and Lena Dunham eating cake on a toilet (don’t judge, we’ve all done it).

But his monologue was pretty stale and predictable and as soon as the punchline to his first joke at the expense of Cat Deeley had left his lips, you could kind of predict it wasn’t going to be as scandalous as you’d hope. Even Ricky Gervais’ appearance was rather mute.

As Hollywood’s elite pat each other on the back let’s remember that these award ceremonies are meant to take aim at the extremely rich and beautiful people on TV. Here are the best bits from the ceremonies history that have done exactly that.


Christina Hendricks, Kat Dennings, and Sofia Vergara Lead the Hot Cleavage Displays at Primetime Emmy Awards

I’ll say this for non-boob showing television shows, their ladies love to show cleavage during award season for their medium. The million dollar mammaries could not be contained at this weekend’s Primetime Emmy Awards, where scores of hotties came decked out in low cut top, or just looking mighty fine, boob tube fantastics such as Christina Hendricks, Kat Dennings, Heidi Klum, Padma Lakshmi, January Jones, Sofia Vergara, Alexandra Breckenridge, Hayden Panettiere, Julianne Hough, Julie Bowen, Zooey Deschanel, and Claire Danes.

Yes, it was an evening filled with Hollywood patting itself on the back. But a day today for us to remember the best of Hollywood’s front side. Enjoy.
