    Emmy Winners 2008

While I didn’t watch the Emmys, I was curious about who won. So, I plopped on over to a few websites, looking for the winners, and found it to be harder than I imagined.  So, to save you that trouble, here they are:

Outstanding Reality Program: “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List”
Outstanding Host For a Reality or Reality- Competition Program: Jeff Probst for “Survivor”
Outstanding Reality Competition Program: “The Amazing Race”
Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series: “The Daily Show”
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie: Eileen Atkins for “Cranford”
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Dianne Wiest for “In Treatment”
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Jean Smart for “Samantha Who”
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie: Tom Wilkinson for “John Adams”
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Zeljko Ivanek for “Damages”
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie: Laura Linney for “John Adams”
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Glenn Close for “Damages”
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series: Tina Fey for “30 Rock”
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie: Paul Giamatti for “John Adams”
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Bryan Cranston for “Breaking Bad”
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Alec Baldwin for “30 Rock”
Outstanding Miniseries: “John Adams”
Outstanding Made for Television Movie: Recount
Outstanding Drama Series: “Mad Men”
Outstanding Comedy Series: “30 Rock”

I just remembered why I don’t watch the Emmys. I haven’t heard of more than half of these people and shows.  And I watch a lot of television and movies. Sad, really.

And while I’m ranting, why is every category called “oustanding” something or other?  Do Hollywood types really need to boast their egos any more than they already are?  Aren’t the huge paychecks, fancy cars, and mansions good enough?  They need to refer to themselves as “outstanding” too?  Unreal.
