Posted September 2, 2014 by Hillary Wright in On the Ladder
1. Sometimes, your luck just keeps going. Jim Parsons’s character Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory won him his fourth Emmy this year.

2. Way to audition for Emmy hosting gig…Between all of the humor (Byran Cranston kissing Julia Louis-Dreyfus after she won her Emmy; Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s antics, etc.,) at this year’s Emmy Awards, these actors and actresses should consider (if they haven’t already), taking next year’s gig of hosting the Emmys. The audience doesn’t want drama; they want laughter.

3. Shonda Rhimes television takeover is evident. While Ms. Rhimes is preparing for the upcoming season premieres of Grey’s Anatomy , Scandal, and her most recent one, How to Get Away with Murder, the star of Scandal, Kerry Washington, was on hand at the Emmys because of her nomination as Outstanding Lead Actress in a drama series.

4. Gratitude always wins. Juliana Margulies beat out her fellow nominees to win for her performance in The Good Wife. In every speech she gives, she never leaves out her husband and children.
