2009 Emmy Award (*YAWN*) Winners

Two shows no one watches won top honors at an award show no one watches. The snarky and smarmy 30 Rock won best comedy series while the fustian Mad Men won best drama series.

It was the third-straight win in the comedy category for the 69th highest rated television show of 2008-2009 and the second consecutive year Mad Men has won for best Dramamine.

Neil Patrick Harris hosted 61st Primetime Emmy Awards Show and he was an absolute delight. He should host every awards show.

With that being said his Dr. Horrible sketch wasn’t funny and it bordered on uncomfortable. As bad as that was, it wasn’t nearly as ridiculous as Jimmy Fallon’s auto-tune sketch.

His bit was an embarrassment to not only those in audience, not only to every man, woman and child that has ever seen a television show or a television or used the letter “t” and/or “v” in normal conversation, but to humanity itself.

While Fallon was making an utter fool of himself, there was a shot of actor Kevin Kline in the audience looking at the late night host with pure disdain and disgust. It was a priceless countenance. It perfectly and silently summed up Fallon’s comedic error.

An error so grave it can only be described as genocide-esque. Fallon should be excommunicated from civilization for subjecting oxygen breathing mammals to such an abominable facetiousness.

But on the other hand his hair looked good.

On tap to present an award, Ricky Gervais once again proved he’s the funniest man on either side of the pond.

Land of Punt’s favorite part of the festivities was the montage honoring the year in drama. It featured clips from the all the dramatic shows people actually watch and not the dramatic shows people say they watch.

We are ecstatic the fabulous Kristin Chenoweth won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a comedy series. It’s too bad it was for the dreadful Pushing Daises. It’s also too bad she came down with a migraine. We wish her well and look forward to her apperence on Glee.
