60th Primetime Emmy Awards logo

Even though the previous television season was marred by the annoying writers’ strike, I find myself really excited for the . Not only will this ceremony give us a chance to start anew, it’ll be the academy’s chance to celebrate what’s new.

Tonight, two basic cable shows (Damages, Mad Men) will get a chance to win for Outstanding Drama Series. (That would be an Emmy first.) Meanwhile, nominees in several categories will have an opportunity to compete in a Sopranos-less environment. An added bonus? A new category. This year, reality show hosts will finally be acknowledged for their programming contributions as well.

So who won? Who lost? Who ran up and grabbed the award even though they didn’t win? Read our West Coast play-by-play account of this evening’s telecast and find out!

Grey’s Anatomy News: Katherine Heigl, Sandra Oh

Katherine HeiglSandra Oh

In June, Katherine Heigl made a remark that was bound to anger some of her Grey’s Anatomy co-workers. When asked about the upcoming Emmys, last year’s winner said she didn’t submit an entry because she didn’t feel she was given worthy material.

And while some accused the rising movie star of purposely sparking the controversy (in an attempt to get out of her series contract), one of Katherine’s co-stars has just now spoken in her defense. At an engagement for the Hallmark Channel, (Dr. Miranda Bailey) said:

“All actors have to do that exactly same thing every year. The public at large doesn’t understand it’s not about your body of works. It can’t be something in the middle. You can have a great seasonal arc, but if you don’t have that show that’s your show, then it’s not the right thing for the category. It was amazing to me the way it got blown out of proportion. Some years I submit, some years I don’t.”

The 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Coverage

Emmy AwardsThe 59th Annual Emmy Awards has not even started, yet I’m already sensing sensing a weird vibe about tonight’s telecast.  Will the show be a celebration of those young and new (e.g. Heroes)?  Will it be a tribute to those bowing out (James Gandolfini and crew)?  Or will performer Kanye West somehow manage to cast a controversial shadow over the rest of the ceremony?

What a difference a year makes.  Twelve months ago, we were still handing out trophies to stars from Will & Grace and The West Wing (those shows feel so five-years ago now).  Today, we welcome a new crop of nominees including Ugly Betty and 30 Rock for Best ComedyLast year, we were entertained by an always-hilarious Conan O’Brien.  This year, we are threatened by a song and dance number from this year’s host, Ryan Seacrest.  Last August, 24 snagged the award for Best Drama.  This September, it’s not even nominated (yet somehow Boston Legal is).

I think it would be safe to assume the voters would predictably (and respectfully) shower The Sopranos with honors, but I’ll still be crossing my fingers for an upset sometime tonight.  We’ll need something to talk about tomorrow…

Here’s the play-by-play of tonight’s events coming to you from the neglected West Coast!

Top 5:  Cliffhangers I’m Waiting to See Resolved

The Office

Having (purposely) blacked out what was left hanging in May, I actually managed to enjoy my summer.  Now with premiere dates looming, I’m finding myself salivating and feeling a bit antsy again.  Will my returning shows serve me right—or will they just drop the ball?  Here are the five season enders I’ve been fretting about the most:


The Office (NBC)
Although they have left me with dread before, the writers have proven they can write themselves out of a possible corner.  When Jim initially professed his feelings for Pam, I was afraid the show had gone too far, too soon.  But who could have predicted the route last season would take?  And now that Jim and Karen are kaput, will Jim and Pam finally be happy?  More importantly, will we be happy?  And let’s not forget about Ryan and Kelly.  What on earth will she do if he really takes that promotion?

Grey’s Anatomy (ABC)
Right now I’m really in the mood for a good girl fight, so I would pay money to see Callie give Izzie (as much as I like her) what she seriously deserves.  There’s nothing better than a Callie-done-wrong.  And while I liked Preston Burke as a character, I’m surprisingly not sad that he walked out of his wedding.  If anything, I’m hoping this will lead Cristina Yang (the fabulous Sandra Oh) to become bitter x 5.

How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
Funny—this show is supposed to be a comedy, yet last season’s finale really shook me up.  When Ted and Robin realized they simply wanted different things in life, I immediately found myself going through stages of grief.  Nah—they’re

not going to break up.  Seriously, why

did they have to break up—so what if she doesn’t want kids??  Arrgh—can’t anyone be happy these days?  Really, I just want them to do what is best for the show.

CSI:  Crimes Scene Investigation (CBS)
As inconsistently as I watch the series (I have to know what’s going on at Seattle Grace)—I found myself drawn to that miniature-doll-killer storyline.  Now I will have to find more room on my DVR because I must know what will happen to Sara!  Will Grissom find her in time?  And now that everyone knows that they are secret luvahs, how will this affect the rest of the show?

Heroes (NBC)
All I can say is:  “WTF is gonna happen now?”
