I loved that mop-lady cartoon before The Carol Burnett Show!
Emmy nominations are out, and for the first time I can remember, there are more cable than network nominees in the Best Comedy Series category. I'm thrilled that Girls and Veep were recognized. Girls totally deserves to win, but will never overcome Modern Family (which I still enjoy in spite of increasingly saccharine, tied-with-a-bow endings to each episode).
Even better, Lena Dunham was nominated for Best Actress in a comedy series, along with every other working actress who's ever made a person smile, from Zooey Deschanel to Edie Falco.
Margaret Cho is America's best-kept state secret
Bizarrely—and happily—Margaret Cho received an Emmy nod (Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series) for impersonating Kim Jong-Il on 30 Rock! But otherwise, I'm never truly satisfied with the Supporting or Guest categories. None of the Girls girls or boys?
I'd give all the dramatic awards to Downton Abbey, which is more fun than a week-end.
American Idol failed to get nominated for Reality-Competition Program in spite of six others getting the nod.
Anyone you think was missed or unfairly recognized?
