The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards show was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel last night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. This once a year event honors the best in primetime television programming. And for the first time, none of the four major American broadcasting TV networks were nominated in the categories of Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
In terms of miniseries or TV Movie, what network do you suppose dominated? That’s right, HBO with 81 nominations and 6 wins. With what program did HBO have its most wins? That’s right, the Sarah Palin hit piece, Game Change, with 4 wins.
Game Change was nominated for Outstanding Miniseries or TV Movie; Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie; Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie; Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie; Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie; Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries, Movie, or Dramatic Special; lemme catch my breath, Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie, or Dramatic Special – nearly every single category it was eligible.
As highly publicized – AND FIRST REPORTED RIGHT HERE ON HOLLYWOODREPUBLICAN.NET – we all know that that every single above-the-line person involved Game Change was a Democrat and/or donor to the Obama campaign. It seems only fitting that a made-for-TV film that details rumors, misinformation and anti-Republican propaganda would receive the highest honors available in the entertainment industry.
During Julianne Moore’s acceptance speech, she stated, “Wow, I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down.” Afterward, she mentioned that she failed to give credit to two other people in her acceptance speech, “I wanted to give a shout out to Tina Fey and Katie Couric, they were really influential in the 2008 election, and I’m sorry I didn’t say anything.” Presumably because they helped assassinate Sarah Palin’s character prior to the election… and giving Moore great inspiration on assassinating Palin’s character after the election.
Another big winner last night was two-time Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series winner Julie Bowen who plays Claire Dunphy on ABC’s Modern Family. Her political allegiance appears to be aligned with Republicans as she donated $1,000 to a Republican woman running for Congress back in 2002.
While we love seeing outstanding Republican actresses win Emmy awards, like Patricia Heaton, if Julie wants to keep winning them, then she needs to follow in the footsteps of those involved in Game Change and just about every single other Emmy-winning actress of the last 30 years and start accepting anti-Republican roles in Dramatic Movies and/or start sending money and support to Democrats.
Because that is the message being sent these days… The road to the Emmy is through the DNC.
