Emmy Awards 2008: De winnaars

De historische miniserie “John Adams” brak gisteren een record tijdens de uitreiking van de 60e Emmy Awards. De serie, die wordt geproduceerd door Tom Hanks, wist immers 5 van zijn 23 nominaties te verzilveren en dat is een record. Verder was het volgens verschillende bronnen een bijzonder slaapverwekkende show, met als dieptepunt een sketch waarin presentatrice Heidi Klum de kleren van haar lijf liet trekken door de overige vier presentatoren.

Gelukkig was er nog Tina Fey om voor een vrolijke noot te zorgen (ook volgens verschillende bronnen overigens). De actrice / scenariste / producente won met de comedy “30 Rock” vier Emmy’s, waaronder die voor beste komische serie, beste actrice (Fey zelf) en beste acteur (Alec Baldwin) in een komische serie. En dat is wat mij betreft niet meer dan terecht, zeker als je je acceptance speech (voor de Emmy voor beste scenario) uit je decolleté vist en begint met de woorden “Oh nerds…”

De Emmy voor beste actrice droeg Fey dan weer op aan haar ouders: "I thank my parents for somehow raising me to have confidence that is disproportionate with my looks and abilities. Well done. That is what all parents should do." Baldwin, die enigszins verrassend Steve Carrell uit “The Office" voorafging,  voegde eraan toe: "This is the greatest job I've ever had in my life."

Glenn Close werd verkozen als beste actrice in een dramaserie en bedankte met de woorden: "We're proving that complicated, powerful, mature women are sexy and are high entertainment and can carry a show. I call us the sisterhood of the TV drama divas."

De winnaar kregen vooraf tips van Ricky Gervais die uitlegde hoe je je speech moet geven: "Keep it short, particularly if you're not on-screen talent - no one wants to hear from a producer... and don't cry - it's pathetic, it's just an award,” adviseerde hij.
