Emmys Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of Modern Family


I’m not actually that shocked Modern Family won again for Best Comedy, because of all the nominees, it’s the most LIKE a traditional sitcom and the Emmys are nothing if not about voting for what’s familiar (I love Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but when she won for The New Adventures of Old Christine, I think no one was as surprised as she). I am bored of them picking what they know, but I also don’t want to them to go off the rails just for the sake of it — again, nothing against Andy Samberg, but his performance in Brooklyn Nine-Nine wasn’t especially Globes-worthy, and YET. So basically: Awards ceremonies are really just excuses to complain, and so, I invite you to join me and anyone else in the comments to vent your spleens about who should’ve won. Also, outfits. Let’s look at those too.

Fugs and Fabs of the Modern Family Fan Event


I finally quit watching this show — well, actually, I technically quit last season, because I taped them every week and never watched any, but this year I am officially ADMITTING to myself that I’m not bothering. Still, I’m grateful to the cast for all the fashion moments they provide, as an ensemble. Long may you strut.

Golden Globes Fugs and Fabs: The Empty-Handed Modern Family Cast


I’m not saying it was the wrong decision — Modern Family hasn’t been as strong — but more that these guys must have started to feel like The Sopranos of comedy, where all they have to do is show up and people would throw golden things at them. I do hope that someday Sofia Vergara wins one, though, because that acceptance speech is going to be amazing. I sincerely hope that if/when it happens, it’s one of those that’s chock-full of good-spirited taunting that’s meant to be funny but nobody in the audience is totally sure if they’re allowed to laugh.

Emmy Awards Man Fugs and Fabs


I’m sorry, Fug Nation. None of our subscriptions had any photos of the Cumberbatch. Will you accept Thomas Jane looking like a lunatic as a peace offering?

… No? Okay, then there’s a treat for you at the end. Which is working correctly now that said treat is placed where I INTENDED it to be placed. Sigh. Technology.
