    Tom, these Emmy folk are so backward thinking that the Best Variety Series isn’t even nominated and hasn’t been for some time (Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson).

    Since the Emmys screwjobbed Damon out of a guest actor nomination for his amazeballs hilarious portrayal of himself on House of Lies, then he’s got little chance of scoring here, either.

    Tom, since you have the episodes submitted for Best Variety Series, do you have the episodes submitted for Best Reality, Reality-Competition, and Reality Host ?

    “Jimmy Kimmel Sucks” is the official episode title, and it was by far the best Variety Series episode of the entire calendar year. If there’s any justice in this world, Jimmy Kimmel will win the trophy. But we all know there’s no justice.

    smartone, yes, I just got the DVDs for reality competition/ program and host + special. I’m dropping them off with Marcus tomorrow (Monday) and he’s going to do writeups pronto — so, pls hold your horses, Derbyites!

    The Daily Show’s tape is actually great this time, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they win again.  I’d like for Kimmel to win, but we all know that as a longshot.  I think Colbert could have picked a better tape, there were better moments from the season (I think).  SNL has a slight chance, but Timberlake’s episode wasn’t that good.  Maher and Fallon never had a chance.

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if The Daily Show lost to Jimmy Kimmel in the year that Daily Show submitted a great episode, and Jimmy Kimmel was barely present in his episode. LMAO

    I think precisely because Kimmel is barely in his episode that they won’t give the show the win. Stewart is gonna repeat.

    There was only 1 episode that Kimmel could have submitted that would grab some attention, and he did! Ok the Matt Damon episode can be a bit gimmicky at times and it felt like some of the bits fell a little short (I think they could have done more with Oldman, Kidman, Adams, Witherspoon and Moore – funny but felt like it didn’t go anywhere) That being said I’m not ruling it out. Its still the dark horse. Emmy voters could think its was a brave thing for Kimmel to step aside and let Matt Damon take over (who did a great job and a shame he is not eligible). 

    The thing about the Daily Show is that it is not only hilarious but it always make a point about something, socially and/or politically relevant and thats hard for talk shows that are lighter variety entertainment to beat. The Daily Show submitted very well – great episode but I can’t help thinking there are some Emmy voters remembering that even Stewart was getting annoyed with them winning all the time. The Emmys don’t stray too far away from what they like and if the Daily Show doesn’t win (which I’m betting will happen) the alternative is the Colbert Report, which did a great job submitting. I must admit, I was a bit surprised they didn’t go with something obivious like the episode after the Boston marathon, but when I watched the Oct. 24, 2012 episode again I was reminded how funny this episode was. Also, its feels a bit more Daily Show-ish because it is less conservative than usual, with making fun of not only Trump but republicans who need to take biology lessons and media who need to take journalism classes. True satire. Sorry Kimmel but Colbert for the long long long overdue win!!
