Glee's Emmy Nominations

Follow TroutyMouthBlog on Twitter

My name is Lacey but you can call me just about anything. My mom calls me Tater, my aunt calls me Little Heifer, my late grandmother called me 4'10 and my seven year old nephew calls me My Favorite Aunt.

Bonnie and Whitney were so kind to let me to be a guest blogger today because they have lives and I have a work schedule that allows me to be flexible. Seriously, I suggested jokingly that I could do this and they took me seriously. My mother would say that's how she got pregnant with me but I digress.

Before I rant about who wasn't nominated (and believe me I will rant), let's celebrate Glee's nominations.

1) Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour) for The Substitute but I'll wait so you can Google exactly what sound mixing is and maybe you can explain it to me on Twitter.

2) Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Miniseries, Movie Or A Special for The Sue Sylvester Shuffle.

3) Outstanding Makeup For A single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic) for The Rocky Horror Glee Show. I think we all agree that was an AWESOME episode.

4) Outstanding Hairstyling For A Single-Camera Series for The Sue Sylvester Shuffle. Did you see Dianna Agron's hair in the half-time show? Epic!

5) Outstanding Costumes For A Series for New York. I don't understand why THIS episode was nominated instead of The Rocky Horror Glee show or The Sue Sylvester Shuffle. Can anyone explain this to me? You can find me on Twitter (just ask Bonnie and Whitney for the secret password)! Anyway, Lou Eyrich is a mad genius. I want her to dress me! I'm not a tiny girl so I'm totally in love with Mercedes and Lauren's clothes! I just wish I had her budget!

6) Outstanding Casting for A Comedy Series. Robert Ulrich is also a mad genius. How much do we all love this cast? I know that they are only looking at season two cast but let's just consider the cast for a second, my personal favorite characters are Tina, Coach Beiste, Quinn (Don't judge!), Sam, Santana and Brittany, and Burt Hummel. Do you like how I listed Santana and Brittany together? In my eyes, they are one character in two bodies and that character is called Brittana.

7) Outstanding Comedy Series. I know many people haven't been thrilled with the previous season and I am included in that but let's look at what we have had. Yes, the continuity isn't always the best but there have been some moments that I have found noteworthy.

a) Pretty much anything Santana says is noteworthy; I mean she wrote TROUTY MOUTH for goodness sakes!

b) Who doesn't want a dad like Burt Hummel? The man had a talk with his gay son about sex. How many fathers to their straight sons about sex? A single mom raised me so I never had a dad but if I did, I would want him to be like Burt.

c) Quinn Fabray. I adore Quinn. I understand Quinn and in some ways, I think I am Quinn. I know a lot of you didn't like the "Lucy" plot line but I did. I think it makes perfect sense. If you'd like me to go more in depth about that you can find me on Twitter or maybe Bonnie and Whitney will let me share my feelings through their wonderful blog!

d) Funeral - The episode was not the best Glee episode but Jean's funeral was the most beautiful thing in the world to me. It came two months and one day after I lost my beloved grandmother (she died the morning after Original Song aired in the US).

e) New York - Of course New Directions didn't place at Nationals. Last year they didn't win Regionals. Next season, I think they will place. Did anyone else notice Tyler Shields in that episode or was that just me? The person sitting next to me looked like Tyler Shields (the photographer) and I'm sure that was him since he's friends with a lot of the cast. He's shot Dianna, Jayma, Harry, and Jenna. He may have shot others that I am forgetting now. If you are familiar with Tyler's work and you should be, you will realize that the pun is intended.

8) Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series. Chris Colfer. Definitely, a good choice. Kurt is one of the best characters on television in my opinion. You either love him or hate him. Let's face it, he's the gay male Rachel Berry.

9) Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series. Jane Lynch. I would have loved to have seen more Jane this season. I missed her lot this season. I would have rather had more Sue than all those episodes of Holly Holliday.

10) Guest Actress In A Comedy Series. Kristin Chenoweth, Dot-Marie Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow.

a) Kristin Chenoweth. I adore Kristin Chenoweth but I don't know why she had to come back.

b) Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth was fine for one episode but felt like she took away from the contract and recurring cast. Did Jenna Ushkowitz even get to finish a full solo this season? Gwyneth did.

c) Dot-Marie Jones. How I love Dot-Marie Jones! I missed Coach Beiste for the last few episodes this season. I hope she returns in Season 3 because she has so much to offer. I think Will should ditch Emma and go for Coach Beiste. I think they are called Willabeiste.
Who wasn't included that I think should have been?

1) Naya Rivera! Absolutely. I have a strong feeling that she will be nominated next year.

2) Lauren Potter (Becky Jackson) deserves a Supporting Nomination. I think Finn should dump Rach and go for Lauren because she calls him "Finny Bear.” How great would that be?

3) Jayma Mays, where was her nomination? She married a HOT dentist and remained a virgin!

4) Amber Riley also deserves a nomination but I hope with the "big storyline" for Mercedes next year that she will get one next year.

5) Chord Overstreet deserves all the rewards! I think that the network was stupid in not making him a contract character in the next season but if Chord does return (and Ryan Murphy wants him to), I hope that he gets a nomination next year.

6) Iqbal Theba (Principal Figgins) is hilarious as Principal Figgins (remember "Tik and also Tok by rapper Key-Dollar Sign-Ha?”) Epic.

What did you like about this year's Emmy nominations? Who do you think got a nomination that they didn't deserve? Who deserved a nomination that they didn't get?

I hope you will join me in watching the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards Live on September 18, 2011 at 8pm EDT/5pm PDT on Fox!

I just want to take a little time to thank Lacey for writing this up for us. Not only was it a brilliant post that I completely agree with, but she was kind enough to take some time out of her day to write up the explanation of the Emmy noms. So, on behalf of myself and Whitney, THANK YOU LACEY!
