Glenn Close of “Damages” and Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad” captured drama awards while Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin of “30 Rock” won top comedy acting honors at Sunday’s Emmy Awards. With presidential elections upcoming in November, the recurring theme in most speeches was politics.
However, Tina Fey’s speech was my favorite where she thanked her parents for raising her to have confidence that is disproportionate with her looks and abilities. This, she claims, is what all parents should do. Fey, Sarah Palin’s lookalike, also won a trophy for best writing in a comedy series.
Meanwhile, Close exclaimed that actresses are now proving that complicated, powerful, and mature women are sexy, are high entertainment, and can carry a show. On the other hand, Cranston won the trophy for his role of a desperate man who turns to making drugs.
