I may or may not have been celebrating the Bears winning last night instead of watching the 2009 Emmys. So being a naughty Dame, I watched it at the crack of dawn just for you.
Neil Patrick Harris hosted the awards and of course opened with a song and dance. He then made me giggle with a jab at America’s “Jackass,” Kanye West. Harris added, “Here’s hoping Kanye West likes 30 Rock!” to his opener and warned every one of gatecrashers.
It was basically a repeat of last year’s Emmy Awards in the perspective that “30 Rock” and “Mad Men” dominated the accolades. Tina Fey’s tv baby won Outstanding Comedy Series for the third year in a row and “Mad Men” reclaimed it’s award for Outstanding Drama Series.
The real story was taking place back stage. PopEater reports that after Kristin Chenoweth accepted her award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her role as Olive Snook in “Pushing Daisies,” she reportedly request medical attention. It started with a migraine that she said started to prevent her from opening her eyes. On site paramedics cared for the actress. She rested back stage and then left the awards. Reps have confirmed that she is doing well and was rumored to be considering returning to the ceremony’s after parties.
