There is no such thing as an unimportant awards show, and the television Emmy Awards is one of the most vital recognitions of high art that this country has. This year’s nominations were announced earlier today, so we decided to take a closer look at several of the categories in an attempt to better understand exactly what these nominations mean for both television and the future of all humanity as we now know it.
Best Comedy Series
“Arrested Development,” Fox
“Curb Your Enthusiasm,” HBO
“The Office,” NBC
“Two and a Half Men,” CBS
We’re not really sure how a Charlie Sheen/Jon Cryer rip-off of My Two Dads could possibly be considered better than Entourage, or how Scrubs could still be so popular, or how Arrested Development could ever have been cancelled, but none of that really matters since The Office will win anyway, and rightly so. There is simply no taming of the Schrute.
It’s been a while since a decent movie mashup made its way around the web (I think the last great one was 10 Things I Hate About Commandments). This one’s not bad, though. Click here to watch How Scarface Got His Groove Back.

President George W. Bush turned 60 years old today, so we thought we’d make him a card.
Windfall, Big Brother 7, Master of Champions… nah.
Sure there’s a lot of good new stuff on tonight, and interesting premieres (The Dudesons, anybody?), but I think I’m going to stick with the classics. And by that I mean, repeats of The Office and Grey’s Anatomy. Hey, I’m a traditionalist.

I love in when I stumble upon stuff online that is just plain awesome. Retrocrush found a super-rad website that sells a wide variety of original theatrical posters from Hollywood movies playing in Poland. This might not sound very exciting, but you’ve got to see some of the weird, surreal stuff those crazy Polish people came up with for films like Gremlins, Weekend at Bernie’s, Short Circuit and The Terminator (seen at left). I’ll post a few of my favorites after the jump, but I recommend checking them all out for yourselves!
If there’s anything that just says “summertime fun”, it’s packing a blanket, heading to the beach and watching all the beautiful bikini-clad babies sunbathe and sip strawberry daiquiris. Movie starlets seem to enjoy showcasing their prized bodies at the beach even more than most people, and while some of them are scorching hot (UPGRADE), others just look like cold fish (DOWNGRADE). Tell us which of these sunbathing beauties make your temperature rise, and which ones just give you the chills.
Now this is a cause we can get behind.
Think what he’s given to the world. Knight Rider. Baywatch. The reunification of East and West Germany. Untold laughter from forwarded e-mails of him in hotpants. He’s given a lot. It’s time we gave something back.
