superficial

  1. Cid_Acid

    Who the hell watches the damn crappy Emmys anyway? They are as worthless as a dump in the tiolet!

  2. Darby

    Whats wrong with Patricia Arquette? She’s cute. But yes the Emmy’s suck. More patting on the back. And What about Raymond is the most infuriating show on TV! Arrested Development is FAR superior in evry way.

  3. Minionated

    The fact that Ian McShane went home empty handed makes me want to give each and every single one of the voters a lifelong urinary tract infection.

  4. HillaryYoung

    :::Shrug::: James Spader won. So there is hope for the Emmys.

  5. cellophane_star

    I’m so glad “Raymond” is over so I don’t have to see that annoying cast again. It was satifying to see Ray Romano NOT win the actor award.

    Nothing for Arrested Development or Scrubs? That’s just wrong.

  6. smock7

    It is my personal opinion that the Emmy’s are designed to award each and every program that I never have and never will pay attention to. I am not sure how they come across this information.

    Although I haven’t seen it, Everybody Loves Raymond appears to be equal to the the black plague of Europe in terms of its negative effect on society.

  7. K-dawg

    Yeah, “Everybody Loves Raymond” had the same plot for 9 years. His mom hates his wife and he is a whinny bitch. How do you strectch that into 9 years! Thank god it is over. And that is crappy they get it just b/c it is their last season.

  8. Skope

    The emmys are ridiculous. In the past they used to actually reward the best Tv had to offer. Now its just all bullshit like MTV movie awards.

    Arrested Development, Deadwood, Scrubs all went empty which is outrageus since they are the best shows on TV with the best performances.

  9. Kevin

    The Emmys need to remove all awards with the word “miniseries” in it. It will cut down that dead time in the middle of the show. Also, both the Oscars and the Emmys need to eliminate the “really old guy , who’s not even an actor, talks for too long” part of the show. I’m sure everyone in show biz knows who that guy is, and what he’s babbling about, but no one else cares.

    For the awards themselves: Raymond, take your awards and be gone. Patricia Arquette – not worthy. James Spader – not worthy. William Shatner – *so* not worthy.

  10. Sydney

    Eh. What. How come Scrubs won like, nothing. Everybody loves Raymond is so rubbish, and I agree, thats mostly because the plot is completely rubbish.

  11. Xibalba

    What?!?!?!?! Everybody Loves Raymond is over???? /cry What will i do without you Doris Roberts? Guess i’ll go back to watching porn like before ELR was on the air… And don’t act like i’m the only one here that wanted some of that!!

  12. evelyn bateman

    How the hell did Frances Conroy go home empty-handed for her work in Six Feet Under? What a fucking crime.

  13. Clance-man

    Okay, Patrcia Arquette may have been talented at one time, but this pablum she passes off as a TV show is awful. There were many others in that category that deserved the golden girl over her. Now I think it is rigged!

  14. Tommy Cruise

    I’m still waiting for the “Best Reality Show Contestant” award. I refuse to watch the Emmy’s until then.

  15. emily

    word, thank you cynical guy, for bringing to our attention that ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT is the best show ever and that Tambor and Walter got robbed!

    But, congrats to Felicity Huffman, she totally deserved it.

  16. jeromycraig

    Meh. The Emmys basically nominate the same shows every single damned year. Frickin’ “Will & Grace” still gets all the comedy nominations each year, and the damn show hasn’t been funny in a looooong time. “Everybody Strokes Raymond” was NEVER funny, but it’s always swept the comedy awards. Factor in their refusal to recognize “The Simpsons” as an adult sitcom, and you’ll understand why I stopped watching ‘em years ago.

    I can imagine the panic in the boardroom when a show that’s not one of their 10 usual nominees becomes a breakaway hit. Or, even worse, when one of their 10 standards gets cancelled.

  17. Dawn

    The Emmys are the Soap Opera Digest Awards gone retarded.

    It’s dreck, from beginning to end. In my opinion, the only thing that saved last night for me was Kristen Bell singing badly but looking hot in leg warmers. And Conan. Because Conan is one funny bitch.

  18. ThaNuts

    So clearly, they acknowledge that Arrested Development is the best written series, right…. So why didn’t it win any other categories? Obviously, the acting sucks…? ..fucking tools.

  19. Ms. Dilligaff

    The only shows I watch are Arrested Development, Lost, and The Daily Show. Didn’t see the Emmys, but I heard about ‘em. I thought Everybody Loves Raymond ended a few years ago. Not *everybody*. Are they ever going away?

  20. robin m

    (quote)How the hell did Frances Conroy go home empty-handed for her work in Six Feet Under? What a fucking crime.(/quote)

    Yes, indeed. I think that the emmys were rating Season 4 of SFU and not 5 – so I have hope for next year (b/c the 5th season didn’t start until June…). I hope she wins it, she is so amazing.

    Thank god Raymond is gone so now we can honor some real shows. Like Desparate Housewives (rolls eyes). AD should have cleaned up.

  21. Sociopath

    I’ve only watched Medium once, but that one viewing made sure I’d never, ever watch it again. Patricia Arquette is annoying. And her hair was so ridiculous you have to wonder if it was a dare.

  22. stinkypinky

    I love Tommy Cruise’s idea about best reality show award. I would love also other categories such as “Whiniest bitch in a reality series”, “ugliest before picture in a reality makeover series”. The list could go on and on….

  23. jfive

    this is why I hardly watch tv any more crap , crap and more crap!! :)

  24. Felicity Huffman has done well since she left “The View”.
