Jimmy Fallon is the host of the 62nd Emmy Awards. Tonight’s show thus promises to be filled with some cutting edge political humor and a general laugh fest about the foibles of America. Fallon tells it like he sees it. He has a sharp with, and some boyish charm to soften his hard edges.
There are some great shows and people nominated for awards. I have presented some of the picks and look forward to reading comments about who you hope will win too.
Will American Idol win an Emmy? This season was the last time American Idol will have Simon Cowell. Thus it would be extra special if American Idol won an Emmy this year. Simon helped shape the show to bring it to enormous success.
It would be a nice sentimental touch to see the show get an Emmy. It might even make the Simon, who shows his cold hearted side when judging contestants; show his soft side for once.
Glee is nominated for 19 Emmy awards this year. This musical show is immensely popular. It features an ongoing variety of guest stars so the excitement level about the show stays quite high.
Lea Michele of Glee is nominated for best lead actress and Matthew Morrison is nominated for best lead actor. The show itself is nominated for best comedy series.
It will be interesting to see if Glee makes a sweep of awards at the Emmys. This show has been a sensation this year. Anything is possible for Glee!
The show 30 Rock is nominated for 15 Emmy awards. It has gotten a lot of media coverage this year due to having Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey in the cast. He is up for the best comedy actor award. Tina is nominated for the best comedy actress award.
The show Mad Men is nominated for 17 Emmy awards this year. Jon Hamm is up for best drama actor and January Jones is nominated for best drama actress. This show has some fervent followers!
Betty White has already won one Emmy. She may win more as the Emmy show begins. She is nominated for outstanding guest actress for her appearance on Saturday Night Live, notes People. America loves Betty White! Best wishes for some more excitement at this year’s Emmy show Betty!
Tony Shaloub is nominated for outstanding lead actor in comedy for his role in Monk. I am rooting for Tony to win. I love his humor. Also he’s Lebanese and that’s part of my heritage too. Go Tony!
George Clooney at the Emmy Awards
George Clooney fans will be pleased to hear he has returned to America to attend the Emmy Awards. During the awards he will win the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award. He is the fourth person to receive this award, notes the Los Angeles Times.
Clooney is well deserving of this award. He has done much charity work and had amazing success planning a telethon to help the people of Haiti after the earthquake. He also participated in events to raise funds after the attacks of 9/11.
George Clooney is still in mid-life. He hopefully has many decades in front of him. It will be interesting to see the humanitarian work he does in the future. He seems to be a man with a big heart and a desire to help those who are in crisis.
Rumors abound now that George may be engaged or about to get engaged to his Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. Will she have an engagement ring on when they attend the Emmys? If so, that will cause quite a commotion.
