So the Emmy nominations were released today, and I was happy to see shows like Modern Family and The Good Wife get tons of recognition. Every adult actor on Modern Family was nominated for an award (including Ed O’Neill this time), as were FIVE actors from The Good Wife. Wow!
I’m thinking of doing something that I haven’t done in years: have an Emmy watching party with my friends. We used to do this all the time with both the Emmys and Oscars, but gave up a few years ago when none of the shows we followed were ever nominated. Since that has changed this year, maybe it’s time to have a party.
If I do have a party, it will be a big one. I plan on ordering a personalized banner for the occasion and possibly even having it catered (by which I mean ordering a large quantity of food from the local Italian beef or Chinese place!). The banner will be a nice, unexpected touch, and it’s only $21.99 for a totally personalized message. It’s durable, too, which means I’ll be able to use it again if I have another shindig next year.
Anyway, I’ll have to make some calls and see if my friends are interested in doing this. Can’t wait for the awards (and for the new TV season!).
