Recommended Posts


Omg Bob Newhart was great with giving up sky diving and alligator wrestling.

His comedic chops are always gold.  But wow- he is 91 years old.

That's "Ronnie" from the city council and Jazzagals - I don't know the actress's name though.

Oh thank you! I should have known it was her by her huge eyes! (I'm only on the second season of Schitt's Creek)

I haven’t watched Unorthodox yet but it’s on my list. Never watched Schitt’s Creek either.

My husband hates tv but got hooked on Unorthodox when I was watching it. He now says it is the best tv he’s seen. Bob Newhart! Time is a bitch.

He can do drama, too. I still remember a very hard-hitting turn he did on ER years ago as a blind patient who had a crush on Dr. Lewis and was so devastated when she stood him up that he killed himself. It was such a shock to the system to see that!

Sorry, Margo, but after Justified, I don't think I would trust you around alcohol anytime!

So the vodka in The Americans wasn’t a good idea?

He's 91.  I think we need to lock him away with Betty White to keep them safe.

I don't think Bob likes boxes much.

I was hoping the show would be a little shorter without some of the “comedy” bits that I don’t think are funny. Actually, I don’t think Jimmy Kimmel is ever funny, so I guess it’s my own problem that I tuned in, lol.

Tyler Perry was perfect and perfectly amazing.

A writer writes. Same with Lindenhoff.  They wrote great speeches with meaning.

On to (hopefully) all the awards for Succession.

I don't watch Succession. It seems good but it looks like all the characters don't like each other.

So, apparently the Grey universe has become more intense than an episode of Game of Thrones!

Succession wins Actor, but it's actually Jeremy Strong instead of Brian Cox!

I know it's a bit but I honestly would believe that Aniston and Cox decided to quarantine together.

I think Cox's fiance has been stuck in Europe due to the travel ban so I would totally believe it. 

How 2020 that the Emmys are being delivered not by limo but in Kias.

If only Perry's shows were as good as that speech.

Bateman didn't win but it's sweet that he had his daughter there since she's too young to attend the traditional ceremony.

I really thought Cox and Strong would split the vote and Bateman would win. As a Strong fan, I'm glad that didn't happen.

I don't know Zendaya or "Euphoria," but she is wearing the first awards-ceremony-worthy dress I've seen tonight --IMO.
ETA: Although Laverne Cox is fine too.

Great speech.  But I no at least one person who isn't happy.

J. Jonah Jameson:  "Zendaya?!  She's involved with Spider-Man!  Who is a menace!  This is unacceptable!"

 

Succession wins writing, of course.  Better Call Saul is never going to win anything, is it?

I only watched the first couple of episodes of Euphoria, too heavy for me, but Zendaya was outstanding. I'm very happy for her.

Me too, had to bail after a few eps but she was good. But I really thought it was Linney's year. Season 3 was her season!
