Hurray for Kristin!

She did it! In the biggest surprise win at the Emmys of the night (at least for me), Kristin Chenowith took the prize for Supporting Actress in a Comedy!

Even though Pushing Daisies isn't on the air anymore, I'm so thrilled that the Emmys recognized the show and how amazing funny and wonderful Kristin Chenowith was on it. I read this morning that she had to get treatment for a migraine (ouch!) after talking to the press, but I'm so pleased she had her moment to shine!

You go, girl!

Also, major props to the Academy for giving the Supporting Actor Emmy for a Drama to Michael Emerson from Lost. It was a well-earned honor. And if they hadn't given it to them, I would have reached through my computer screen and choked the life out of Neil Patrick Harris, who was acting as their agent by being the host.

Oh, and I thought he did a great job, by the way. The Dr. Horrible interlude was adorable and the opening song was actually funny and classy. A hard to achieve combination.

Biggest surprise because the whole field wasn't filled up by 30 rock? Someone needs to let the academy in on the secret that 30 rock is NOT FUNNY.

You know, I kind of agree. Some parts of it make me chuckle, but the show is so uneven, I don't get why critis cream themselves at the mere mention of it.

By the way, did anyone else notice that the trophy is almost as big as Kristin herself?
