My 2014 Emmy Nomination Wish List

May 17, 2014

Hey everyone,
What's In The Box?I’m baaaaack… Sorry for the delay between posts, but luckily I have been quite busy. I shot an episode of Grey’s Anatomy opposite the lovely Sandra Oh (more on her later), booked a new webseries to shoot in June, and Co-Produced my first feature film Like You Mean It. It’s been a wonderful time, but I have missed ya’ll.

So, I’m back with another blog on entertainment awards because I’m a little obsessed. TV’s big night, The Emmy Awards, will happen in late August with nominations due in early July. With that said, I am hereby recommend the following people on my Emmy Nomination Wish List… Now don’t fret, I still love a ton of people and shows that will probably grab nominations like Downton Abbey, Maggie Smith, Sofia Vergara and Clare Danes. However, I wanted to shine a light on some serious long shots along with my personal favorites and a few surprises. Take a look below and then let me know who you’d love to see grab an Emmy nomination this year.

Shameless Self Promotion~ Catch me on “Scandal”!

May 16, 2012

Hey readers,
I’ve got another one for you. After recent posts about my appearances in the web series The Adventures of Velvet Prozak and Sammy Kingsford: Manager to the Stars, I’m here to promote myself on a show ya’ll have probably heard of, ABC’s Scandal. Check out my small but I’m sure brilliant appearance as a Georgia reporter berating the President (Tony Goldwyn) about his alleged affair. Don’t blink or you could miss me. It was incredibly fun to shoot the show where I was finally doing something other than a comedy (but oh I do love comedy), and everyone on set was so nice. Mr. Goldwyn, who you probably remember best as the villain in Ghost but is also an accomplished film director (Conviction) and Broadway star (I saw him in the wonderful revival of Promises Promises a couple years ago), was wonderful to work with and the episode is a really juicy one. I’m thrilled the show was picked up for season 2 because you are so gonna want to find out what happens to Olivia Pope (the gorgeous and talented Kerry Washington) and her cohorts along with the scandal surrounding the murder of Amanda Tanner. It’s another fantastic show from Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes and I hope it gets some Emmy recognition. I have to give a special shout out to Jeff Perry for his brilliant portrayal of the smart and scheming Chief of Staff Cyrus Been. He had better get an Emmy nomination! … Anywho, enough of my babbling, check out the season finale of Scandal this Thursday on ABC at 10pm. Watch for me and enjoy this brilliant show!
