Celebrity Overkill of the Day: Emmy Awards

My husband and I are pretty well matched except for one GLARING difference. I could care less about movie stars, country singers, directors or reality “celebrities” while my hubby tracks their every move on Facebook, Twitter, magazines and TV. (I think he might have has several restraining orders against him.)

The Emmy Awards (or any celebrity awards show) are a big deal to him and so each year I sit and watch while multi-millionaires with eating disorders give each other trophies. (But that’s okay, I make him do yoga twice a week–so we’re even.)

(Someone get this Emmy Award presenter a sandwich. STAT.)

Anyway. If you missed last night’s celebrity-induced vomit-spectacle, here were some highlights (or lowlights):

  • The sitcom “Modern Family” won everything, including best actor, actress, dog, bicycle, catering, interior design and best original cupcake.
  • A reformed and penitent Charlie Sheen wished the new cast of “Two and a Half Men” an almost-sincere good luck. Right.

(“I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available. If you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”–real quote from C. S.)

  • The Emmytones–an “interesting” a capella group–“sang” between segments. I don’t know who thought this was a good idea–but I don’t think they’ll be winning an Emmy.
  • Julianna Margulies wore a dress honoring plug-in air fresheners. Which one is Julianna–which one is plugged into your wall?

(Oh, she smells so fresh.)

  • Fun note: The Best Actress in a Comedy nominees all took the stage and awaited the results like beauty pageant competitors. And the winner was. . . Melissa McCarthy (“Mike & Molly) who also rocked “Bridesmaids.” Good on ya, Melissa!
  • Andy Samberg, Mya Rudolph, Michael Bolton and Lonely Island reprised some of their funniest songs from Saturday Night Live during the show. Fans of SNL probably really enjoyed it. Parents of kids watching the Emmys–not so much. Not sure if that medley was ready for prime time. (But still hilarious.)

(Raunchy lyrics. Sexual themes. Hilarious guest appearances. Okay for late night on Saturdays. Probably not so much during Sunday “family” viewing.)

Tune in to next year’s Emmy Awards to see who loses to “Modern Family,” “The Daily Show” and “Mad Men.” Or just do some yoga–you’ll feel much better.
