Live Blog: 2013 Emmys

Popcorn? Check? Tuned to CBS? Yes! Perrier? Check? Chocolate? Of course! Here we go! Neil Patrick Harris is hosting which will make the Emmys fun, no one specific show dominates the nominees which makes things a little more interesting. What shows do you watch? I’m a Big Bang Theory girl myself, and I note that the other shows I watch religiously (Hell on Wheels, The Americans) didn’t make the noms. Thrilled about Behind the Candelabra, though I think Rob Lowe should have gotten a nomination for his role as the Bev Hills plastic surgeon. He was sooooo creepy…okay, here’s the monologue!
