64th Primetime Emmy Awards

Emmy Awards 2012

Well, I have to admit that I am not American TV watchers but I consider myself as—what’s the best term?—an observer (maybe), as TV is a big part of entertainment, too. That’s why I always curious about Emmy, one of the biggest entertainment award in USA. This year’s Emmy will be held only in a few hours: Sunday night, 23 Sept 2012, 5 p.m. ET or 2 p.m. PT. Locating in Nokia Theater, Los Angeles, California, Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting this event as he also announced the nominators of the award on last July, together with actress Kerry Washington.

There’s not so much surprise in this year’s Emmy, especially from all those the nominators. Still, new faces are there in this Emmy, like the cute Zooey Deschanel who made her breakthrough on Emmy for being nominated as outstanding lead actress in his new comedy series, “New Girl”. Well actually I doubt that she will win it tonight (maybe Melissa McCarthy will win it again), haha.

One of the most baffling surprise is that no “Glee” in the list. Yes, “Glee” was used to be Emmy’s darling but, hey, you won’t see it in programs or acting category award. The only nomination for “Glee” came for Dot-Marie Jones as the outstanding guest actress. That’s it. What a snub!

I support Peter Dinklage for winning Emmy. Last year he won both Emmy and Golden Globe for his role in “Game of Thrones” and I’m pretty sure he will win it again this year. He’s just too awesome for his competitors in the supporting actor in a drama series category!
