Melissa McCarthy loses out to Veep but still schwings

Congratulations and commiserations to Melissa McCarthy for her Emmy nomination as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.  Last night’s ceremony saw Julia Louis Dreyfus taking the award for Veep, but wowsers did Melissa look great…

fab hair too

It was a tough year, with contenders like Lena Dunham (Girls), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black).

Of course, we don’t take the Emmys that seriously here, with Gilmore Girls being virtually snubbed, receiving one lonely nomination during the seven years, for Outstanding Make-Up for a Series (Non-Prosthetic) – for the Festival of Living Art episode.  Which it won, obviously.  

Don’t you think Melissa looks great?  Why do you think the Emmys seemed to snub Gilmore Girls?  Did Julia Louis Dreyfus deserve the win or do you think Melissa should have won? Would Gilmore Girls have had a movie by now if it had received more awards?

Matt Czuchry at Emmy Awards and his EWwy Win

Matt Czuchry (Logan Huntzberger) recently appeared at the EMMY awards to support his show and co-stars. His choice of “adorably big bow tie” won him some props with fashion critics.


Matt returns in The Good Wife Season 3 starting tomorrow, where he’s said to have a couple of romantic leads for the season. Aside from a possible budding relationship with Kalinda, he may find a new love interest in Monica Raymund’s character, who joins as a prosecutor on Peter Florrick’s team.

TV fans also recently voted on their favorite shows and actors for EW’s EWwy Awards, voting Matt Czuchry as “Best Supporting Actor in a Drama”.

Matt wrote, in thanks:

A letter to my fans,

I have been extremely fortunate to have incredibly special fans support my work throughout my twelve year career. This recognition is a way for me to say… thank you so much to everyone who has taken time out of their lives to be passionate about the projects I have been a part of. I am grateful to each and every one of you. This award is yours.

Gilmore Girls Emmy Snub Still Mentioned

As Zap2it notes, Gilmore Girls never got the Emmy love it deserved. We’ve hashed this out before. But still, I’m always really happy to see that the show is remembered in every Emmy season:


“Gilmore Girls”: There weren’t many other shows like it on TV: a hip mom, her teenage daughter/buddy, and a Connecticut town full of characters, all shooting off Amy Sherman-Palladino’s rapid-fire, pop reference-laden dialogue. At some point, you would have thought that Sherman-Palladino, star Lauren Graham, who handled the dialogue and emotions like a pro, or supporting star Kelly Bishop would have at least gotten a nomination. But the show got nominated for only one Emmy in its seven-year run, for makeup. The show did at least get a win for its one and only nod; let’s hope the makeup department lets Graham and Sherman-Palladino come and visit the Emmy every so often.

Let’s hope that Melissa McCarthy and Lauren Graham get some nods for their current work this year!!
