John Noble in Fringe

Watching an award show is the closest I’ll ever come to experiencing the kind of thrill that sports fans feel when they’re watching the Super Bowl or the World Series. When Peter Dinklage won his Emmy last year, I cheered audibly as if that award had some kind of impact on my life. It’s a strange reaction to have but you watch these shows and these actors every week, you buy the DVDs, you grow attached, and you want to see this thing or person that you adore honored. It’s fandom and we’re helpless to resist its hold on us. The 64th annual Primetime Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning and there really weren’t any surprises or huge controversies both because many of these actors and shows are nominated every year (30 Rock, Modern Family, Mad Men, Jim Parsons, Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin) and also because most of the nominees are deserving of the recognition (Breaking Bad, Homeland, Downton Abbey, Boardwalk Empire, Bryan Cranston). As usual, the snubs, omissions, the inability of the members of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to acknowledge something that isn’t widely celebrated by critics—whatever you want to call it—were the most interesting parts of yesterday morning’s announcement.

With the fifth season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on DVD this week and the sixth season ready to premiere on FX later this month, what better way to get into the spirit of the gang at Paddy’s Pub than by knocking back a few while you watch them make total asses of themselves. So here’s our simple rules to help you out.



Kevin Carr sits his chubbiness down and sees if Daybreakers, Leap Year and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus can make the grade.



Headstrong Sylvia (Tricia O’Kelley) loses it on-screen during her Wacky Weather Girl segment after finding her co-worker Sherry’s (Kaitlin Olson) panties in her live-in boyfriend and fellow colleague’s (Mark Harmon) dressing room. Unhirable in her profession, she is forced to start over by crashing with her brother and waiting tables until she gets back on her feet.



Ms. Olson was brave enough to suffer the quick-fire gauntlet of a round of 20 Questions with FSR while doing a little bit of press for her upcoming indie comedy Weather Girl. One question remains: why is she excited about Danny DeVito getting naked?



In order to make sure Dennis’ new memoir doesn’t succumb to the same fate as the author of “Million Little Pieces,” Mac and Frank decide to re-enact some of the outlandish things in Dennis’ book.



Speaking of inappropriate humor and making fun of just about everything you shouldn’t, we’ve got a nice little surprise for you today, courtesy of the folks over at FX.
