Comedians in Cars AND an Award Show…a little dose of sunshine!

THE ANSWER TO THURSDAY'S TRIVIA QUESTION: Clear Eyes, Full Hearts Can't Lose is from Friday Night Lights. Gotta say, I'm pretty bummed with the response rate on this one. If you read my blog and you haven't watched every episode of Friday Night Lights, we have a serious problem. You will thank me, you will tell me I was SO right, just do yourself a favor this Summer and watch all of FNL so that Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose means something to you!  I'm seriously begging!!!

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee-IT'S BACK!!!
I totally owe you guys a huge apology. In my TV depression haze, I totally forgot to read my own blog and watch the new episode of CiCGC this morning. As soon as I realized that there was a new ep (Thank you Facebook!) I called my husband. He's one of those people who can watch the show at work (See, Jerry's research was right!). He called me back 20 minutes later and told me that this episode was the best one ever. I was shocked.  Sarah Jessica Parker was better than Chris Rock, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman and all the others? YES! She is. For those of you that have never spent any time with me, watch this episode. I think SJP IS ME! OMG she is hilarious, notices all the little stupid sh*t that I notice and she has the best laugh. Jerry and SJP have a great chemistry. I loved the car, I loved the new cheesy theme song, I just loved this episode. I hope you do too!

4th Critics Choice Television Awards
Before I get to the bullet points, I have a couple of comments about the CCTA's. Cedric the Entertainer stunk. They didn't need a host at all. The presenters could have just walked out on their own. The other thing that stunk was that 7 winners out of 24 weren't in attendance
  • Cedric the Entertainer started the show off calling out how few black people there were on TV and in the audience can you say AWKWARD? 
  • Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black, the show you all need to be watching, was realllllly chilllly if you know what I mean and she needed her hair done
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Bellamy Young from Scandal who was really freaking out. You'd have thought she'd won an Oscar. 
  • The chick from The Americans didn't look that happy when she lost. 
  • Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Aaron Paul for Breaking Bad but he wasn't there to get it which really should be a requirement. 
  • My friend Diane Gartner looks a lot like Angie Harmon and Colin Hanks looks a LOT like his Dad 
  • Best Guest Performer in a Comedy Series: No idea what constitutes a "gues performer" but...YEAH Crazy Eyes aka Uzo Aduba from Orange is the New Black (bonus if you know Crazy Eyes first name)  
  • Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series: Allison Janney for Masters of Sex gold Best first sentence at a podium ever…"I just came"
  • Best Supporting Actor in a Mini Series or Movie: Matt Bomer for the Normal Heart  Damn he is SUPER hot!  I love the word he used to describe what he went through during filming The Normal Heart…HANGRY. I will be using that Matt.  I'll give you credit though. 
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Mini Series or Movie: Allison Tolman for Fargo. Great cleavage was offset by a cat call out. Once you start talking to your cat on National TV chances of getting other jobs decrease
  • I hated Laura Prepon's dress
  • Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Andre Braugher for Brooklyn 9-9 but he wasn't there to accept and I got angrier. 
  • I hated Isaiah Washington's hat
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: TIE!!! Kate Mulgrew from OitNB not there to accept which of course pissed me off. Allison Janney for Mom (2nd of the night if you're counting) 2nd best first line at the podium "Well this is the climax of my career" 
  • The Most Exciting New Series: They all look scary to me except for Halt and Catch Fire.  Penny Dreadful, Extant, The Strain, Outlander The Leftovers & Gotham
  • Louis 13 Genius Award to Ryan Murphy. Ryan stole the mean tweets idea from Jimmy Kimmel but who cares their still funny.  
  • Sarah Silverman's boobs looked awesome. She and the guy from @Midnight win for best presenters.  
  • Best Reality Series: Cosmos.  The producer tripped on her dress, couldn't hold her own award, seemed to have this weird lip thing going on and couldn't say Seth McFarlane's name correctly. They played  her off. which is weird because with all the peeps not showing up there should have been extra time for speeches. 
  • Best Reality Series Competition: Shark Tank- Mark Burnett had a crazy Jesus beard. I'm pretty sure I'm glad I'm not their kid or a relative of any kind
  • Best Animated Series: Archer - Loved the Hong Kong Phooey reference and the super crazy acceptance speech 
  • Emmy Rossum looked gorgeous
  • Best Actor in a Movie or Miniseries: Billy Bob Thornton for Fargo. I was bummed that Mark Ruffalo didn't win and Billy really creeps me out. Can you believe Angelina slept with him AND Brad Pitt. 
  • Best Actress in a Movie or MiniSeries : Jessica Lange who wasn't  there to accept her award which again pissed me off
  • Best Talk Show: The Tonight Show. Jimmy wasn't there AND they didn't even give the award out on the show and THAT really pissed me off. 
  • Best Reality Host: Neil from Cosmos won and he wasn't there EITHER. You know how I felt. 
  • Best Mini Series: Fargo won. Was that Warren Littlefield up there? 
  • Best Movie Made for Television: The Normal Heart 
  • Jonathan Rhys looked sad and again…I forgot how Welsh he is
  • Lizzie Caplan from Masters of Sex looked good but could use a hot oil treatment on her hair
  • Best Actor in a Comedy Series: Jim Parsons for Big Bang Theory 
  • Best Actress in a Comedy Series: Bev Goldberg lost to Julia Louis Dreyfuss for Veep and she wasn't there. BEV was robbed! 
  • Best Comedy Series: Orange is the New Black YEAHHHHH. I don't want to say I told you guys, but I DID! 
  • Best Actress in a Drama: Tatiana Maslany for Orphan Black. Keri Russel and Lizzie Caplan didn't look to thrilled during their loser close up, but I've been screaming to whoever will listen about Tatiana. She's brilliant. 
  • Best Actor in a Drama: Matthew McConaughey beat out Bryan Cranston well…all right, all right, all right!  Matthew's amazing at the acceptance speech thing. He really needs to have a class for others to learn the craft.  
  • Final award of the night given out by Christian Slater who reminded of Jack Nickelson
  • Best Drama: Breaking Bad and nobody from the show was there other than the Executive Producer that's quite a letdown.  Still an award show and still enjoyable. 


-I know we were all totally psyched for Better Call Saul this Fall, but AMC has moved it to 1Q. That's the bad news, the good news is that they've already renewed the show for a 2nd Season which is a positive sign. As much as it totally sucks to have to wait so much longer for it, we all know that 4Q is about holidays, football and clutter. We'll wait til it's cold and snowy and we're hibernating like bears to get into this one. I have faith in my friends at AMC. I feel it, this one's gonna be GOOD!

-Chelsea Handler must have had Netflix on her dream board or something. I remember when she was on Howard Stern and said she wanted to be on Netflix and as of last night, it's official. She's going to do a stand-up special and other stuff until her talk show launches with them in 2016. I still can't stand her, but I love when someone sets their minds to something, puts it on a dream board and it happens for them. Congrats Chelsea.  I wonder when I'll get my Tesla?

-If you're into Beyonce, and lets face it, who isn't? Check out the first of four 10 minute special concert segments this Sunday right before the premiere of the final season of True Blood. 

-How good does this sound? "Lifetime goes behind the scenes of one of TV's most popular Saturday morning series in a new movie called: The Unauthorized SAVED BY THE BELL Story. We have to wait til Labor Day weekend for it but don't worry, I'll remind you.

-Big Brother peeps…check this out: 

Friday's Easy Trivia Question (I think it's an easy one) : Who were Saul's 2 best clients? 

Have a great weekend!
