Other than Neal Patrick Harris as host, there wasn’t much for genre fans at the Emmys last night – though Dr. Horrible did break in briefly. (I was underwhelmed.) But, good news for fans of a certain tiny psychopath – Michael Emerson took home Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for his turn on Lost.
On a refreshing note, I find this bit to be funnier the second time around. Go fig.
Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello has confirmed that Emmy host Neil Patrick Harris will be part of a “Dr. Horrible-themed production” tonight. Horrible picked up a Creative Arts Emmy last week. (If you haven’t seen it by now, we’ll have to revoke your geek card. Sorry.) Also appearing? John Hodgman. This could be the most nerdalicious Emmys ever!
“We’re in there plugging. The writers are trying to put something together,” Whedon told MTV News. “We haven’t even decided on a venue. We have a story and we’re working that. We’re just starting with that.”
Joss Whedon has revealed that there are plans in the works to a sequel to his web musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, according to this report on SciFi Wire checking in from the PaleyFest. It might be feature length, it might be on the web, and maybe even Felicia Day might return as Penny.
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Online Sensation, in the 35th Annual People’s Choice Awards, beating out other such online sensations as “Paris Hilton’s response to McCain ad”. In the other geeky categories, Heroes nabbed the spot for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show, Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman got favorite superhero, and Christian and Heath beat out Harrison and Shia for Favorite On Screen Match Up. The Dark Knight beat out Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Iron Man for both favorite movie and favorite action movie.
With the DVD release of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog coming up this Friday, the Amazon asked Joss Whedon to give it a review. A little odd, since he wrote it, so, well, he made his review a little odd in kind. It’s typical Joss goofiness, which is fun, and definitely worth a read. I give it forty eight billion stars.
Once upon a time, in a decade called the 80’s, little girls played with little plastic ponies. Except me, but that is because I wanted GI Joes and Transformers and Star Wars toys. I cringed at typical “little girl” toys and had absolutely no interest in My Little Pony at all.
Until now. How can you resist Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer? The prancing pony on the top of the car for Captain Hammer is absolutely perfect in my opinion and if I could, would be proud to add them to my desk collection. Check out the detail on his cargo pants!
Fandom never ceases to amaze me in it’s ingenuity and creativity. Just one question: where are Penny and the frozen yogurt to make this set complete?
