The Awards of the Emmys

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, each year the Manolo he has roughly the same reaction to the Emmys, “who are these peoples?”

The Manolo he does not watch much of the popular televsion, not because he is one of those annoying holier-than-you peoples who scorn the popular entertainment, but for the opposite reason, because he loves the television too much. And thus, the Manolo must forgo the television watching, lest it becomes all he does, every day.

The result it is that the Manolo knows few of the peoples who each year attend the Emmys, to accept the awards for the shows he never watches, shows such as “Everybody Loves the Tall Guy and His Sassy/Difficult Family”, “Two Has-Beens and Their Man Child”, “Dead Body Poking” and the popular off-spin, “Dead Body Poking: Miami” the latter of which, the Manolo knows, stars the Master Thespian, David Caruso.

But, despite this ignorance, the Manolo feels still the obligation to his many internet friends to make the brief comments about the Emmys and those who attended them.

Here for the example, is the prime specimen of the species homo televisionius, the rare domesticated creature who is unable to flourish in the wild, but is paraded ceremonially on these occasions.

Clearly back on the hooch.

Look, it is the Botox Angels!

Speaking of the plastic surgery and its victims.

You should hope you look this good at 80!

Ayyyyy! It is the Hilton Sisters, Paleface and Bronzer.

    Did The Manolo not see the Ty Ty Baby (Tyra Banks)? Or could The Manolo not form the words needed to describe the ill-fitting lace front wig?

  2. Broad Says:

    The rumors that Nicky’s pregnant with Kevin Connolly’s bebe could possibly be true, yes?

  3. sfmike Says:

    “Dead Body Poking” is my favorite new title, and unfortunately it could apply equally to about half the shows on network television. Thank you for enduring The Emmys for us little people, Manolo.

  4. Deborah Says:

    Manolo, I worship at your feets! I wish I looked as good as Cloris Leachman NOW. And I am not quite 80. We should all age as gracefully.

    I am with you on the “who are these peoples.” I feel like I’m in a time warp or something.

  5. Annalucia Says:

    What is it with the Farrah and the Kate and the young lady in silver-gray whom the Annalucia does not recognize? Have these ladies not the money? And the stylists who are paid to make them look as handsome as Nature and Artifice will allow? How is it that they manage to look worse than the Annalucia did on the day after her hysterectomy?

  6. Monk Says:

    Ah, but the Annalucia must remember that the models of super are not as lowly as the Annalucia or the Monk. The Annalucia and the Monk, they are mortals; the models of super and the Tyra Banks and the drunken man in the suit which is wrinkled are above we few. Says the Terry Pratchett, “They were dressed as poorly as only the super rich can afford to be.” The Monk agrees. The rules of fashion, they are not the same. The good taste of the mortals is not to be applied to the high and mighty.

  7. Anonymous Says:

    The lady in silver is the Lisa Rinna, an unfortunate lass who is the spokesperson for “Collagen Attacked My Face!”

    The Chandler Bing, he is rumpled from looking for the Real Killer of his career.

  8. Elvira Says:

    The Hilton girls aren’t supposed to be pretty, are they? Just rich? And famous for being famous?

    I thought so.

  9. Gemdiva Says:

    Dear dear Manolo, many thanks for the best laughs I am likely to get all day. You are truly the master!

  10. Amy Says:

    Interesting…I thought the Manolo was referring to the Harry Hamlin as the plastic surgery victim…why do he and the Lisa Rinna still count as the celebrities anyway?

  11. Julia Says:

    Manolo, I know what you mean about liking tv so that you don’t want to watch too much. Lately, I have been sampling some of the new shows but I try to restrict myself to only a few major dramas each week. I love popular culture but I confess – only the good stuff.

  12. class-factotum Says:

    I have no TV for the same reason. I also do not keep ice cream in my house. I have no self discipline. If I had TV and ice cream, I would be a fat, TV-watching slob and would have no reason ever to wear gorgeous shoes (in public, that is). And my feet would be too fat to wear them anyhow.

  13. VJ Says:

    The Cloris has much to teach Charlie’s Fallen Botoxed Angels. She once laughingly referred to herself as Clorox Bleachman. There is nothing sexier than a woman who does not take herself too seriously.

    80 years old? Are you kidding? Did you see her antics during the show? That woman is HOT!! and she knows it. She’s not only hot, she can act better blindfolded with hands tied behind her back than all three Angels put together.

    Go Clorox!

  14. kate Says:

    manolo, i know you don’t mean to mock the hardships of others, but i think your comment on matthew perry was a bit harsh. i’m sure life after friends has not been easy on him, especially since david schwimmer is technically more “successful.”

  15. Sue Says:

    Jaclyn Smith is still gorgeous.
