Overall, I was disappointed. My bets didn't win. I wanted Hugh Laurie to win so bad. I'm a big "House" fan. I was also rooting for Kristin Chenoweth of "Pushing Daisies." I find her sooo funny. Jeremy Piven won his third Emmy for playing agent Ari in Entourage. Good for him. "30 Rock" rocked the Emmy's by being the big winner. I find Tina Fey very funny. Paul Giamatti was no surprise. He's really quite a good actor. Loved him in "Sideways."
