The Hollywood Reporter says the ratings for last nights Emmy Awards were just slightly higher than last year (a 10.0 in 2009, a 10.1 for 2010) which proves that people will watch anything because that show never makes any god damn sense. First of all, everyone always looks like hell. January Jones looked like a fishing lure, and Anna Paquin dressed up like Judge Dredd.
Then on top of that, the winners usually suck, highlighted last night by Jim Parsons winning Best Actor in a Comedy. What they're saying is that the funniest person on TV this year was a guy on 'the Big Bang Theory', and that he was better in a comedy than Larry David or Alec Baldwin, or Adam Scott in ‘Party Down' or Joel McHale in ‘Community'.
How does someone that simple minded even figure out how to vote? How many ballots were sent before they stopped eating them? It would be like an award for a suspense movie, and 'the Usual Suspects' losing to a home movie of someone playing 'Got Your Nose' with a toddler. "Where did it go?', Emmy voters would cry out in disbelief!
