I am more scattered than usual this morning because of Bravo's big news - NINE EMMY NOMINATIONS! That includes nominations for "Top Chef" and "Project Runway" for Outstanding Reality Competition Program and Kathy Griffin's "Life on the D List" for Best Reality Program. "Inside the Actors Studio" got its 13th nomination for Outstanding Nonfiction Series. Whaaaaaayt!? And... Wowza!!!!!!
There's a great vibe in the office today. Everybody's smiling. The Magical Elves are having a party in their office today. I know that Picture This Productions must be chillaxin' by some pool eating bon bons with Kathy Griffin. Hopefully Jim Lipton is sipping fine whiskey somewhere. We had great emails this morning from Michael Kor's office and Padma and Gail and on and on. It is nice to have something to cheer about. Full Release Massages for everybody!
And ain't it funny that last night I watched hours and hours of television. So much that my eyeballs are hazy today. I saw Ep 104 of my new favorite Bravo show, "Flipping Out" and a new cut of Ep 101 of my other favorite, "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style". I am so excited for these shows to go out to y'all!
When I was done with work, I hit the DVR to finally watch "The BET Awards"... WOW. I know this happened weeks ago, but I certainly would've blogged then about the Jennifer Hudson/Jennifer Holiday duet of "the song". It was a full-body goosebump moment. The other whomper-stomper moment of the night was Diana Ross' Lifetime Achievement Award. There were performances from Erykah Badu ("Love Hangover"), Chaka Kahn ("I'm Comin' Out") and Stevie Freaking Wonder ("Upside Down"), but it was Ms. Ross' speech that truly blew me away.
