In yet another instance proving most people are insane, James Spader took home an Emmy for Best Actor in a drama.
Let me preface this by saying I love James Spader.
He was up against Keifer Sutherland, Denis Leary and Hugh Laurie.
And James Gandolfini.
Spader is an easy choice to win over Sutherland, Leary and Laurie. But Gandolfini?
You gotta be kidding me.
As if that weren’t bad enough, 30 Rock won for Best Comedy.
The show’s good, don’t get me wrong. And, I have a soft spot for Tina Fey because, not only she is incredibly talented and witty, but she hails from Upper Darby, Pa., as I do.
Moving on from self-aggrandizing plugs, the problem I have with 30 Rock is that it was up against … The Office.
Now that’s just ridiculous. Speaking of The Office, the season premiere is Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. That’s one full hour of witty brilliance coming your way.
It’s time for the weekly necessary evil: The Britney analysis.
For the record, I am no Britney maniac.
However, I also don’t live in a cave, which is why I must mention her.
Earlier this week, a judge basically called her a drug addict and ordered that she undergo twice-weekly random drug tests in order to keep joint custody of her kids.
I’m not one to cast aspersions (well, I am, but let’s move on), but when your behavior affects your kids, that just frosts my Cheerios.
In other psycho mother news, Courtney Love was recently quoted as saying that she is just a Beverly Hills soccer mom.
Apparently, soccer is now code for no-talent, drug-addled, sleazy overrated skank.
She’s also using the word mom rather loosely.
Showtime is using the term actor loosely as well. Mary Kate Olsen appeared on Weeds this week, portraying a sheep in God’s flock. Her acting was flat and unimpressive.
Olsen plays a Christian who is saving herself for her husband, does not smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol (except for wine, because Jesus did).
Interestingly, though, she told her romantic interest that they can still have fun.
I will reserve comment, but I think that means this Christian gal uses the term virginity loosely.
And, now, what you’ve been waiting for: O.J. Simpson news.
Simpson was arrested Sunday and charged with 10 felonies, including kidnapping, robbery and burglary in connection with an incident in Las Vegas. The charges involve a weapon.
Simpson’s bail was set at $125,000 Wednesday, which somehow posed no problem for a guy who still owes millions of dollars to the Goldmans.
He already has a defense team. How is this guy paying for this stuff?
The weirdest and most disturbing news this week: Marcia Clark. The former prosecutor who tried Simpson way back when covered the hearing for Entertainment Tonight.
