Tony Shalhoub may have edged out our man for Best Actor tonight, but Steve Carell still walked away a winner. The Office brought home the award for Best Comedy at the 58th Annual Emmy Awards, reaffirming what every one of us has known all along: yeah, it’s that good. Congratulations to the fine folks that work tirelessly to produce the show, all while maintaining an unprecedented level of dedication to their fans. No honor is more well deserved, not even (and I’m risking life and limb by saying this) Jac–I mean Kiefer’s belated win for Best Actor in a Drama Series. Sweet!

For those of you who were unable to tune in, Denise (aka ddker) has uploaded videos from the evening to her MySpace page. Check out the Videos link underneath her profile picture. Thanks, Denise.

Prison Break

Monday21 August 200624 Comments

Alright, this has nothing to do with The Office, but for God’s sake, if you don’t watch Prison Break, then start. I just polished off Season One on DVD (just in time for the season premiere tonight) and, wow, what a ride. I mean, holy schnikeys. That’s right. Schnikeys. That was some closer. The finale was as terrific as terrific can be; coronary-inducing, even. It would have done Jack Bauer proud, and believe me when I say that is a very difficult honor to obtain. Prison Break has all the hallmarks of a show worthy of my obsession: tremendous production values, a riveting pace, and most importantly, characters that you genuinely care about. The finale left a few of them in rather dire circumstances (one of whom was a favorite of mine who I pray makes it to Season Two), so I am very eager to see where things pick up tonight. All and all, more than enough to claim a spot at the winner’s table beside The Office and 24.

Don’t worry, though, I haven’t forgotten about Michael Scott and Co. In particular, I wanted to thank everyone who participated in our iPod Giveaway. You all did a brilliant job, which will make selecting the winners all the more difficult. Tanster and I will be reviewing the entries shortly. Stay tuned for the final results.
