looks like roles written for them: emmy award winners jeremy piven and jaime pressly

while many things have been written about the sopranos, about grey’s anatomy (which didn’t even win this year), about actors james gandolfini (who didn’t even win this year either; who must have felt crestfallen after hearing the presentors announce “james” followed by “spader” instead) and katherine heigl (because she’s a popular chick, so why not?).

as for me, these two virtually unsung supporting actors deserve their statuettes the most:

it’s the agent of a young hollywood superstar: slave to the bureaucratic underpinnings of agency work, frontliner to the volatile world of showbusiness. perfectly fitting into the high-strung, explosive character of ari gold, jeremy piven rightfully deserves both emmys he won for the same role, having bagged the title two years in a row. now that’s something we can “let’s hug it out, bitch” for.

i wouldn’t know how other viewers feel about tina fey losing to jaime pressly, but i’d always choose the one who makes me laugh out loud. taking the slapstick out of things that make you guffaw, jaime pressly’s joy darville rolls out the barrel with her white trash brogue and trailer park smarts. playing the permanently inconsiderate, occasionally raunchy joy had earned jaime a nomination last year, but won it only this year. and i’m thinking, it’s about time.
