I Totally Love Awards Shows!

Email me your predictions and a pic of yourself in your Red Carpet Finest!! Beeb and I are going to play Joan and Melissa, and perhaps R will make a guest appearance as COJO!!

Here are (some of) the 2006 Emmy Nominees:

Outstanding Comedy Series
Arrested Development
Curb Your Enthusiasm
The Office
Two and a Half Men

How do you chose between A-D and The Office? I'm going to have to pick Arrested Development for nostalgia's sake, and hope that The Office continues to be brilliant. I don't have cable, so I'm not as familiar with CYE.

Outstanding Lead Actor - Comedy
Larry David - Curb Your Enthusiasm
Kevin James- King of Queens
Tony Shaloub - Monk
Steve Carell - The Office
Charlie Sheen - Two and a Half Men

I'm pretty confident that Steve Carell will take this one. Although I will say that my parents are HUGE Monk fans.

Outstanding Supporting Actor - Comedy
Will Arnett - Arrested Development
Jeremy Piven - Entourage
Bryan Cranston - Malcolm in the Middle
Jon Cryer - Two and a Half Men
Sean Hayes - Will & Grace

Too many worthy contenders here. I'd LOVE to see either Will Arnett or Bryan Cranston win, but for some reason I'm drawn to Jeremy Piven despite the fact that I've never seen this show. I know he parties with LindsayLo a lot.

Outstanding Lead Actress - Comedy
Lisa Kudrow - The Comeback
Jane Kaczmarek - Malcolm in the Middle
Julia Louis-Dreyfuss - New Adventures of Old Christine
Stockard Channing - Out of Practice
Debra Messing - Will and Grace

Ok, how many episodes of The New...Old Christine have aired? Like, three? Come on, people. I've never seen it. Never seen Out of Practice is either, but I thought it got cancelled, didn't it? Not to take anything away from any of these actresses, but to me, this just looks like they were stumped and thought "Well, who do we usually nominate?" Jane Kaczmarek is consistently brilliant and I'm still heartbroken that Malcolm is over (Hey FOX, release the rest of the seasons on DVD already!), and I would love for her to win, but I kinda think it will be Kudrow, even thought I've never seen her show either.

Outstanding Supporting Actress - Comedy
Cheryl Hines - Curb Your Enthusiasm
Alfre Woodard - Desperate Housewives
Jaime Pressly - My Name is Earl
Elizabeth Perkins - Weeds
Megan Mullally - Will & Grace

Ok, this is another tough call. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Jaime Pressly as The Former Joy Hickey. But Elizabeth Perkins is straight-up genius too. And I've actually seen Weeds Season one on DVD (wanted to see what the "buzz" was about), and loved it. So I'll flip a coin here. Heads. Jaime Pressly.

Outstanding Drama Series
Grey's Anatomy
The Sopranos
The West Wing

I don't watch any of those shows, honestly, but I'll say House, just for fun. I think Hugh Laurie's kinda hot in a slightly creepy way.

Ouststanding Lead Actor - Drama
Christopher Meloni - Law and Order: SVU
Denis Leary - Rescue Me
Peter Krause - Six Feet Under
Kiefer Sutherland - 24
Martin Sheen - The West Wing

Again, I have no idea what I'm talking about. I think Six Feet Under is one of the all-time greatest shows ever. But part of me would just love to see Denis Leary win an Emmy Award because I would love to see his acceptance speech. I'll go with Leary.

Outstanding Supporting Actor - Drama
William Shatner - Boston Legal
Oliver Platt - Huff
Michael Imperioli - The Sopranos
Gregory Itzin - 24
Alan Alda - The West Wing

I think Shatner won last year. I'll go with Christopher Moltosanti this time. How I long for the next season of Sopranos to come out on DVD...

Outstanding Lead Actress - Drama
Kyra Sedgwick - The Closer
Geena Davis - Commander in Chief
Mariska Hargitay - Law and Order: SVU
Frances Conroy - Six Feet Under
Allison Janney - The West Wing

I've heard a lot about Kyra Sedgwick recently. I'm picking her. She's frickin gorgeous.

Outstanding Supporting Actress - Drama
Candice Bergen - Boston Legal
Sandra Oh - Grey's Anatomy
Chandra Wilson - Grey's Anatomy
Blythe Danner - Huff
Jean Smart - 24

Is Sandra Oh related to Sadaharu Oh? I think I remember reading that somewhere. I'll say Candice Bergen.

Outstanding Reality Show
The Amazing Race
American Idol
Dancing With The Stars
Project Runway

My favorite category! But wait - where's America's Got Talent??? Where's America's Next Top Model??

And where's Hell's Kitchen, YOU DONKEYS?!!?!

I think The Amazing Race should win, and I hope The Hippies are in the audience. I loved those guys.

I still cannot believe Arrested Development was not picked up for a fourth season. I couldn't read past Will Arnett's nomination because sadness overtook me.
What are you wearing to the ceremony?

cpurl17 said...

Oh I Heart award shows!

Penny Karma said...

Oooh, we should do a red carpet show like we did for the Oscars!

Anyone ballzy enough to post a pic of their Emmy attire, email it to me!

I'm gonna try to talk R into playing the role of Steven Cojocaru (or whatever his name is).

Bezzie said...

Wait didn't Cojo just have that kidney transplant or something? Is he doing it this year?

Oh you know I'll be emailing you my predictions and pic! Ha ha!

Ed said...

Larry David should be knee-capped.
The office, complete pants (even the UK version).
Nice new avatar, like it.

Penny Karma said...

Thank you, I think I look less smug in the new photo.

Note: If anyone knows the name of the character and the show that she's on, they get Super Double Bonus Points.

Ed - Is Pants good or bad?

OldLadyPenPal said...

i think "pants" is a derrogative term, becuase pants means underwear, right? i'm with you, ed, in a completely inter-continental sort of way. larry david should be shelved in a cubicle. i'm changing my last name to bluth.

Batty said...

Wow, I'm so out of the loop! We don't watch regular TV, just the occasional DVD. Looks like I'm missing out on a lot of craziness!

The last show I saw more than one episode of was the Tyra Banks model contest, and it cracked me up. Good fun while knitting!

Poops said...

Is the new avatar from Nanaland? Just a guess.

I'm rooting for Tony Shalhoub because I have been in love with him since Wings.

And since The Closer is my new favorite show, I'm voting for Kyra Sedgewick. She's awesome.

I too am APPALLED that America's Next Top Model was not nominated. My guilty pleasure. I love watching skinny girls with inferiority complexes. Now that's award-winning TV!

No Earl, the show is fixed!!
