I’m not even kidding when I tell you people that I would watch Bryan Cranstonand Aaron Paul do LAUNDRY. Basically, I just want a USTREAM “puppy-cam”-type deal, following them around 24/7. Is that too much to ask? AnyOBSESSION. Let’s all take a peek-a-loo at the awesomeness that is the Barely Legal PawnEmmy promo. (Oh yeah, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is in the clip, as well.)
I tell ya what, Bryan Cranston can get all smarmy with me anytime he damn-well pleases–snakeskin boots and all. I’m totally gonna be wearing my “Tread Lightly” shirt on Monday, August 25th and screaming like a 13 year old One Direction goon when (not bloody IF) Bryan wins for Best Actor in a Drama forBreaking Bad.
Broadway’s biggest night was full of great performances and emotional speeches. The 68th Annual Tony Awards were hosted by Hugh Jackmanthis year, who kicked off the show by hopping for 4 minutes straight. A little homage to the “Street Dance” sequence from the film ‘Small Town Girl.’
When he finally made it to the stage, he was joined by the cast of ‘After Midnight,’ which featuredDule Hill, Patti LaBelle, Fantasia Barrino and Gladys Knight.
Other big performances included James Monroe Inglehart‘s jumping genie in ‘Aladdin,’ the cast of ‘Les Miserables‘ performing “Do You Hear the People Sing,” Idina Menzelbelting her out on “If/Then“ and boxers in the ring for “Rocky.” I’m sure a lot of people didn’t think a boxing movie would translate well for the stage, but it looked pretty cool.
‘A Raisin in The Sun‘ and ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder‘ took home some of the biggest awards, whileAudra McDonaldgave an emotional speech after she won her sixth Tony. She has one for all four of the acting categories, no big deal! Here are the other winners!
