For the first time (that I know of) the Emmys broke the telecast up into genres. And I guess comedy was either the most or least important because it went first (really? Comedy is less important than reality. Shame on you Mrs. Emmy). Here is a list of who won in the big comedy categories in case you were under a rock or went to sleep early like a boring person.
Outstanding Comedy Series: 30 ROCK – I like the show a lot, but even they must be feeling a little awkward about winning all these awards. I mean how excited can you get 40 awards in?
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Alec Baldwin – 30 Rock – (See above)
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series: Toni Collette – United States of Tara – Dude, I wanted to like that show so much but I couldn’t. I prefer one good solid character than 4 half-assed bad ones.
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Jon Cryer – Two and a Half Men – I wanted to throw my remote at the TV (but I didn’t because I would never hurt my 57″ HD beauty. She brings me so much joy). How can you not give it to NPH you sons of bitches?
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Kristin Chenoweth – Pushing Daisies – Kristin is fun and her show was canceled so I was okay with this one. How cute was Amy though? Very. Didn’t you just want to hug her? Okay, maybe just me. I am a huger.
Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series: The Daily Show With Jon Stewart – I just wish they could have given it to The Daily Show and The Colbert Report together. There are no losers here, except the other people nominated.
Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series: “Reunion” – 30 Rock – 80% of the nominees where 30 Rock so it would have actually seemed like a dick move not to give it to them but Matt Hubbard is going to be talking some shit tomorrow.
Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Series: The Daily Show With Jon Stewart – (see above, but different above then the last see above and not directly above, two above)
