Most of the time I don't realize there is an awards show happening until the very next morning when I see the fabulous pics splashed all across the news media.
I'm generally slapping myself on the head thinking, "I would really have liked to watch that!"
Somehow, someway the stars were all aligned last night, and I actually got to see some of the Emmy's LIVE!
Yep, live television, folks! Doesn't happen very often for me!
Not only did I get to see some of the show, but I also happened to be reading Twitter when several book bloggers popped up and began tweeting about the fab and not so fab dresses the celebrities were wearing. Ladies from Suko's Notebook, Alison's Book Marks, and S. Krishna's Books, I had the best time tweeting with you gals!!!
Besides the clothes, it became apparant to me that I have been missing out on some great shows. I don't like that, not at all. While I don't generally catch shows when they air, I enjoy DVD marathons of full seasons, and liking a show so much that you can't wait for the next episodes is almost as exciting as a great book series.
Here's what I'm cuing for the next marathon:
Downton Abbey (which until last night I thought was DowntoWn Abbey #slapshead)
I've known since the first preview of this series (ahem, almost 3 years ago) that I would enjoy it...but just haven't made time for it)
Homeland (which I never even knew existed #rolls eyes)
Is Clare Daines not one of the most intelligent, well-spoken not to mention beautiful young women on the planet today? Very refreshing, I might add.
Modern Family (again never heard of it but busted out laughing in the following preview). This one was also recommended by a co-worker today as we were discussing the Emmy's.
and Veep (Julia Louis-Dreyfus...where have I been???)
The dialogue between Louis-Dreyfus and Amy Poehler (who were nominated in the same category) was priceless last night. It's also incredibly refreshing to see two classy, successful women supporting each other.
The other show that won awards last night is Mad Men.
I have to be honest, though...I've never really been sure about this one...but I'm intrigued just enough to give it a try.
I've got a lot of catching up to do!!
Do you watch these shows?? Where do I start?
