2010 Emmy Winners

My thoughts: I thought Jimmy Fallon really bombed as a host. He's only occasionally funny, and he provided for a lot of awkward moments. Get Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to co-host. That would be great. Hell Neil Patrick Harris was great, get him back!

Likes: I LOVED that Jim Parsons won Best Actor in a Comedy. That was by far my favorite part of the night. I'm so happy. Also loved that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul won for Breaking Bad. I'm happy that Glee didn't sweep everything like some people thought it would. I'm also pretty intrigued to see Modern Family now, they unseated 30 Rock as the hot comedy. Also congrats to Mad Men on their threepeat! Same with Jon Stewart, I thought Conan was going to get it.

Dislikes: I'm sure everyone is sick of me bitching about Rescue Me not being nominated, but I'm still pissed. The Globes better make up for this. I'm disappointed Lost didn't win anything. The show was always a little too weird for my taste, but it had a loyal fanbase and it kept everyone guessing. It deserved some love on it's way out.

Anywho..here are the winners. Thanks IMDB
