The Emmys were held last night and all I have to say is, well, that was one year overdue. I'm talking about Jim Parsons winning an Emmy for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his performance on The Big Bang Theory. Only bummer is that the show was not nominated and neither were the rest of the cast who greatly deserved it. Some streaks continued while others ended. Mad Men won for Best Drama again but 30 Rock and The Amazing Race had their streaks ended. Modern Family beat out 30 Rock for Best Comedy Series. The Amazing Race lost to Top Chef in the award for Best Reality-Competition Series. Amazing Race had won the award for seven years in a row. Not really surprising as The Amazing Race has grown kind of stale in the last couple of years and that show really needs a boost of something. I say that as a fan from the beginning of the show. Lost was shut out which was surprising. Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn didn't win in the best supporting actor category. The two of them are amazing actors and were gold especially when they were on screen together. There was a lot of hype on Matthew Fox with many expecting him to win for best actor but it was not to be. Fox really stepped his game up this season and they really give him a lot of credit on the Lost season six DVD set. Some of the other big winners included:
Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)
Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer)
Lead Actress in a Comedy Series: Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie)
Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad)
Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife)
Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family)
Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Jane Lynch (Glee)
Directing for a Drama Series: Steve Shill (Dexter - "The Getaway")
Directing for a Comedy Series: Ryan Murphy (Glee - "The Pilot")

The new Dancing With The Stars cast has been named. Here is a list of who will be competing this season: Jennifer Grey, Margaret Cho, Michael Bolton, David Hasselhoff, Brandy, Kurt Warner, Rick Fox, Kyle Massey, Audrina Patridge, Florence Henderson, Bristol Palin, and Mike Sorrentino. I love seeing Jennifer Grey's name on this list. She could be a major comeback story and I am really hoping that she does well. Interesting list for sure that will have people talking.

TV on DVD releases for tomorrow include Brothers & Sisters (Season Four), FlashForward (Full Series), House (Season Six), Lonesome Dove (Season One), The Middle (Season One), NCIS: Los Angeles (Season One), Parenthood (Season One), Sons of Anarchy (Season Two), The Vampire Diaries (Season One).
