Hi-ho! And welcome to the 2011 Primetime TV Kappy Awards!
For the record, that was supposed to be a sorta impersonation of Kermit the Frog and not an invitation to prostitutes to read this post. Not that prostitutes who are so inclined are not allowed to read my blog. I wholly encourage it. I just don't actively solicit it... or them... or... hell, let's just get on with it, shall we?
As any of you who have read this site for more than a year should know by now, these awards are voted on by both Katie and me. We just sit down and hash it out. Please enjoy!
- Best Dramatic Acting – Madeleine Stowe, "Victoria Grayson," Revenge
- Best Comedic Acting – Eric Stonestreet, "Cameron Tucker," Modern Family -
- Best Dramatic 1-2 Punch – Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham, "Annie Walker and Auggie Anderson," Covert Affairs
- Best Comedic 1-2 Punch Ty Burrell and Nolan Gould, "Phil and Luke Dunphy," Modern Family
- Best Dramatic Ensemble - Revenge
- Best Comedic Ensemble – Happy Endings
- Best Male Comeback – We don’t really have one this year. All the cool comebacks have been around for a couple seasons now.
- Best Female Comeback – Mayim Bialik, "Amy Farrah Fowler," The Big Bang Theory – She took what could’ve been just a couple-episode arc as a female version of Sheldon Cooper and became a full-time cast member. She’s our new Bestie.
- Best One-Off Guest Role – William Shatner, "Frank O’Hara," Psych – Although, according to previews, he will be coming back in the spring, he’s still just a one-off right now.
- Best Recurring Guest Role - Michael J. Fox, "Louis Canning," The Good Wife
- Dark Alley Award – (tie) Emily VanCamp, “Emily Thorne/Amanda Clark,” Revenge, and Norman Reedus, "Daryl Dixon," The Walking Dead – We ain’t messing with either one of them.
- Best Drama - Revenge
- Best Comedy – (tie) Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory
- Best Late Night Talk Show – Late Night with Jimmy Fallon – we both LOVE Fallon.
- Most Overstayed Welcome – (tie) Glee and Grey’s Anatomy – Just as quickly as we got into Glee, we’ve now lost all interest. And Grey’s Anatomy? How much longer can that show possibly last?
- Lost in Left Field – Burn Notice – it was an awesome show for the first couple seasons, but the levels of complexity and confusion are just getting to be too much. It feels like they’re desperately reaching for new stuff to keep the show going. Although the season finale was actually pretty good.
- Most Surprising (in a Good Way) – (three-way tie) Revenge, Up All Night, and 2 Broke Girls – we truly went into these shows expecting nothing and have become addicted to them all. Great characters, great scripting, and great stories.
- Second Chancer – Two and a Half Men – we gave up on this show a few seasons back, but after the Charlie Sheen brouhaha, how could you not tune in to see how Ashton Kutcher would do as his replacement? And we’re still watching it. Happily.
- Best Network – CBS – there are six out of seven days of the week where CBS airs a show we watch. I guess they better bone up on Saturdays.
- Worst Network – FOX – I have been watching Terra Nova with waning interest and we’ve given up on Glee although we might try Alcatraz in January. Other than that?
How would you vote?
