Jennifer Aniston might be having a tough morning, seeing as her new movie made a subliminal $8.1 million at the box office this weekend. Betty White‘s also having a bit of trouble this morning, but not because the jacket to her favorite sparkly ensemble is missing! It’s because she won an Emmy at the Creative Arts Awards (a.k.a. “the un-televised ones”) at Saturday’s ceremony, and spent the whole weekend thrusting her hips against the base of the statue on top of a kitchen table in some UCLA frat house and is only feeling it now.
Betty won for Best Acting in a Comedy Series (which is translatable as reviving 35 year-old Saturday Night Live out of its vegetative state for one single night), and Neil Patrick Harris took home a statue of unrealistic proportions for doing this on Glee. John Lithgow won for upping his creep factor (to an even higher level than what it must have taken to play a character who rejected the art form of dance!) when he guest starred on Dexter, and Ann-Margaret also won for going on Law and Order: SVU, which is surprising that I don’t ever remember her doing, considering my entire living room is plastered in screenshots from every episode of that series.
Jeff Probst won an Emmy for his hosting duties on Survivor, and Best Reality T.V. Program went to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, because we’re all so resistant to switch from using margarine to butter, but he’s fighting the good fight anyway. Mad Men and Modern Family won for best casting, Robot Chicken won for Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program, and Anne Hathaway won for doing an Outstanding Voice-Over Performance on The Simpsons as Princess Penelope. There were many other awards that were handed out, like for Outstanding Art Direction for a Single-Camera Series (congratulations to four dudes who worked on The Tudors), but most of us don’t care about those. We’re only anxious to reward the people who were pretty enough to get on-camera work.
