Emmy hits-and-misses

Last night's Emmy telecast was one of the most entertaining in years. So, given that you all immediately turned to this website today to check in on the Emmy Awards aftermath, here are our "hits-and-misses" from last night's event.

- Hit: Jimmy Fallon. The opening number set the tone and Fallon put his personal stamp on the event throughout the night. If anything, he wasn't used enough.

- Miss: No award for either Kyle Chandler or Connie Britton for Friday Night Lights. Yes, I know it's a personal crusade of mine but this show, and its actors, deserve more recognition.

- Hit: Claire Danes' dress. It was elegant, it was pretty and it was perfect for her. My pick for "dress of the night."

- Miss: It pains me to say this but...January Jones. What was up with that dress? And, did the hair even see a comb, brush or styling spray?

- Hit: Speaking of January Jones, how about Jason Sudeikis? The KU boy stepped up big time with his coming out as Jones' new beau.

- Miss: Al Pacino's hair. Dude...

- Hit: Heidi Klum and Seal. It's beauty and cool. It's spunk and "the voice." Our favorite couple of the evening...

- Miss: The pre-show shows. Can the networks' please find someone who can do a decent "interview" without the inane "who are you wearing tonight?" Answer - "No one. But Monique Lhuillier DID design this dress."

- Hit: The recognition for Mad Men, Modern Family, The Pacific and Glee.

- Miss: Archie Panjabi winning Outstanding Supporting Actress. Yes, she's good as is the show, The Good Wife, but there were more deserving actors in this category.
