HOW HOT IS HELEN MIRREN? Watched the Emmy's (yawn...stretch) last night. I really should have become a plastic surgeon and moved to Hollywood. There were some faces pulled so tight you could bounce quarters off them ("Good morning, Angels"). And then there was Dame Helen Mirren. Sixty-one, sexy as hell and no surgery. I was rooting for her or Gillian Anderson for best actress, but Helen took it for Elizabeth I, proving once again how versatile she is as an actress. Her line about nearly "falling arse over tit" on her way up to the stage was hilarious and, thankfully, not censored out. Love, love, love Helen Mirren. More Prime Suspect, please.

Jean Smart was ROBBED of her Emmy for best supporting actress in a drama. She should have won for playing First Lady Martha Logan in 24. That was the big disappointment of the evening, but I was glad to see Keifer Sutherland and the show finally get some attention. This last season was spectacular. Can't wait for the next series in January. It was also nice to see Will & Grace star Megan Mullally get one last Emmy for playing Karen. She was always the funniest one on the show. I have a bad feeling that Megan's new talk show is going to flop. Who talked her into that?

Conan O'Brien bores the shit out of me, although the grief he's getting for the Lost airplane crash opening sketch is further proof of political correctness run amok. How the hell did they know that ComAir jet was gonna crash earlier in the day? And how the hell is that "insensitive" to the victims and their families? Get a life, people. Stop watching so much television.

Helen Mirren rocks. She rocks as an actress, too. But Gillian's depth and subtlety in Bleak House rocked so much more. Bleak House deserved to win over Elizabeth I. I might be wrong but I think in a few years' time BH greatness will be even more obvious. I'm not sure Elizabeth will stand the test of time.

Yeah, Candice looked pretty terrible. She's usually so well put together, but that southwestern belt thing she bought at a flea market in Tijuana was a BIG mistake. And what the hell was Eva Longoria wearing? Kleenex?
Maybe once this country gets its politics correct then we should focus on becoming politically correct.

sheesh. I'm no fan of conan either -- but for crying out loud that is just ridiculous. but you know, there is a pattern of this in our country -- when tragedy strikes we look for a scapegoat that rarely ever has anything to do with the real cause. I guess it's our way of 'coping' -- pretty bad.
