Come Sunday evening you’re going to have a difficult choice when deciding on your evening entertainment. Either you can play some games here at Silver Oak or you can watch the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards. Of, if you’re good at multi-tasking, you could do both. Maybe play the Hollywood-themed online slot Big Shot while watching the real big shots pat each other on the back.
Personally I’m going to be watching for one reason and one reason only. I’m hoping that Kanye West will jump up on stage to grab the microphone away from Alec Baldwin and declare that Beyonce should have won the award for best actor in a comedic series. Hey, it could happen.
Of course, if tonight’s show is anything like last year’s, most of you will be doing anything but watching the three hour Hollywood love-in. Last year’s awards were about a half dozen viewers away from being the least-watched Emmy’s in history. This year might be a little more popular, if only because the very funny Doogie Howser Neil Patrick Harris is hosting. And, well, because everybody else will also be tuning in to see if Kanye can elude security and make his way into the auditorium.
It’s all going on tonight, live(ish) from Los Angeles. So I advise you to get playing your favorite online slot machine and turn on your TV right now. And keep your fingers crossed that Entourage doesn’t win any awards, because I’m kinda sick of that show.
