Last month, I was nominated for another Blogger Recognition Award by a most hilarious blogger, Diversion3000. She’s not the typical blogger I follow (i.e., she doesn’t review nail polish and lipstick), but I’ve giggled and snickered at enough of her posts that I’ve become a follower of this engaging 8th grader. Thank you for the nomination, D3! (God, 8th grade was such a long time ago. strokes beard)
Blogger Recognition Award Rules
- Write a post explaining why you started blogging along with a few tips.
- Nominate some of your fellow bloggers.
- Comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.
I’ve already responded to one of these here.
I’ll take the time to nominate a few blogs that I’ve discovered recently:
Since there’s little actual content in this post, I’ll end off with a teeny rant about the Emmys. I don’t usually pay any attention to them since they tend to snub the shows I like best. But today, I saw that Game of Thrones took home a bunch of awards, including Best Drama Series and a well-deserved Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Peter Dinklage.
Fair enough, even though I don’t think this last GoT season was terribly even. Here’s my list of Top 5 Emmy Snubs:
- American Horror Story: Freak Show
- The Americans (Season 3)
- Daredevil (Season 1)
- Empire (Season 1)
- Justified (Season 6)
It’s especially disappointing for Justified, since it just finished its final season. (I’d have added Hannibal, too, but I think it aired after the cutoff date for this year’s Emmys.)
And, of couse, the Emmys reminded me that there are many shows I still need to watch. The Top 5 on my catch-up list are:
- The Affair
- The Leftovers
- Mr. Robot
- Sons of Anarchy
