I am a HUGE sucker for awards shows. I love movies, television, plays and streaming series! Award shows celebrate the best of these categories and I’m all here for it. I’ll be honest, I’m partial to comedy over drama but this year I had to goal to try to watch EVERYTHING that was nominated for an Emmy so I can REALLY get into this years Emmys!

I’m personally crossing my fingers for Sam Rockwell, Niecy Nash, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jason Bateman, RuPaul’s Drag Race, James Corden, and EVERY Comedy series.
My top favorite shows for 2018 & 2019 are all nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series.
Truth: I will cry for JOY if the adorable Canadian Levy family wins for Schitt’s Creek. I just can’t get enough of it!
Unpopular Opinion: I know GOT (Game of Thrones) is a great series. It is well made, well written, well executed (pun intended). But it’s time for someone else to win. There are some new shows that are absolute genius that deserve not to be overshadowed by GOT. (i.e. Killing Eve)
There ya go, I think you are well informed on this years Emmy Awards.
I can’t wait to watch along with you! I will be attending the Red Carpet in the FOX Prime Time Emmy Awards Red Carpet Bleachers this year! I am so excited to put on my favorite blue dress and see all the celebrities!!!!
