So the US Open ended with an unexpected scenario (a.k.a Juan Martin Del Potro dethroned Roger Federer). Who would take on the responsibility to entertain me now? As ironic it can be, I am a challenge-driven athlete who just love relaxing in front of my TV shows.
Every year, the Emmys not only award the most talented in the industry but also kick-off the new TV season. Have you seen how wonderfully the athletic yet luminous Neil Patrick Harris hosted that night? On his opening act, he convinced me to “Put Down the Remote”
Even Jon Stewart praised him during his acceptance speech right on stage. Let me tell you that Neil Patrick Harris deserves all those kind words. His career did survive both child stardom and coming out. And how many persons agree with me that ‘How I Met Your Mother’ wouldn’t be the same without him as Barney?
Regarding the awards, I am happy to see another successful year for Tina Fey’s brilliant series ’30 Rock’ which won among others “Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series” (Alec Baldwin) and “Best Comedy Series”. Moreover, I was beyond ecstatic for Kristin Chenoweth‘s Emmy for “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series”.
If you had the occasion to discuss with me about TV, you might have witnessed how a huge fan I am for her show ‘Pushing Daisies’. If you have perused my blog, you will also remember my admiration for Kristin Chenoweth’s talent since her second episode where she was “Hopelessly Devoted to You“. With tears of joy, she adorably said “I’m unemployed now so I’d like to be on ‘Mad Men,’ I also like ‘The Office’ and ’24.’” while accepting the award.
*Sigh* I still can’t believe that such a masterpiece has been canceled. Let’s hope that Bryan Fuller will still come up with other genius series as equivalent if not more as ‘Wonderfalls’ and ‘Pushing Daisies’.
