Neither Robot Chicken: Star Wars or Family Guy: Blue Harvest picked up Creative Arts Emmys yesterday, losing out to The Simpsons and South Park, respectively. And Carrie Fisher, who was up for her 30 Rock guest spot, lost out to some chick from Desperate Housewives. On the whole, it wasn’t a great night for genre, but Battlestar Galactica did pick up Special Visual Effects for a series.

Dear media: Over the last few weeks I have seen about a million references to the Sex and the City movie as ‘Star Wars for women.’ I’ve rolled my eyes pretty much every time. Please stop, or I’ll be forced to commit further crimes of photoshoppery.
- SWTV: Family Guy trying for two Emmy noms this year with the help of Blue Harvest.
- People: Amanda Lucas made her martial arts debut Saturday. She lost her match but did get a medal for being the night’s gutsiest fighter.
- Events: Modesto celebrated the 35th anniversary of American Graffiti this weekend.
- Fandom: The Arizona Republic profiles their local 501st, the Dune Sea Garrison.
- Film: Martin Hynes has a film opening Friday (The Go-Getter) but you probably know him as the guy who played George in George Lucas in Love.

Yup, it’s that time again… The lone genre winner was Lost’s Terry O’Quinn, who picked up Supporting Actor in a Drama. Heroes (With its ever cuddly and extremely photogenic cast! Plus S2′s
Veronica Mars Kirsten Bell as Hiro’s Masi Oka’s date!) was up for the top drama award, but lost to the final season of The Sopranos.
