I was as surprised as anyone that the Emmy Awards were actually FUN to watch! Kudos to Jimmy Fallon! I can honestly say I have never sat through an entire awards show from start to finish nor have I paused or hit the rewind button! Jimmy Fallon won the trifecta last night!
The opening number was fantastic! But then again, you can never go wrong with Springsteen. The tribute to shows that have gone off-air; I actually snorted I laughed so hard at Jimmy Fallon’s imitation of Green Day! Jewel gets a special mention for her beautiful song “A Hole in My Heart in the Shape of You”, which nearly brought me to tears and then Ricky Gervais’ comments and service of non-alcoholic beer was hilarious!
Finally, I have never been a big George Clooney fan. I just don’t think he is as talented or good looking as the media insists he is. In fact, other than being part of his famous ensemble cast in the Ocean’s Thirteen movies, I can’t name one movie of his I actually like. However, last night he gets credit for making me laugh. His skit with the cast of Modern Family was very funny. I give a strong golf clap! Hair gel!
So thank you Mr. Emmy Awards Show Announcer Guy! Perhaps next year you will be emanated for a nominee yourself!
