2009 Emmy Awards.

Last night, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences handed out of the Emmy Awards.

Couple of comments:
Glenn Close winning for DAMAGES. She has done a fantastic job, but I don’t know that she should have won for the second season, which was certainly a notch below the previous.

But, it is always nice to see talented folk get rewarded. Personally, I would have given it to Holly Hunter for SAVING GRACE.

Also, I was thrilled to see Kristin win for PUSHING DAISIES. Nice to see her (and the show) get some recognition for a nice performance in a unique show.
