If you want to know more, or read a sort of analysis of the meaning of who got the awards, we suggest you hie thyself off to Deadline Hollywood. And, believe it or not, tech site Gizmodo offers some genuine insight into the most important change in the medium.

If you want to be entertained as all hell by a couple of inside looks at the awards, we present the one and only Ken Levine, who outdoes himself with two terrific reports. One on the overabundance of, well, you’ll see. And one on the Big Night itself.

One site we don’t recommend on this subject (hence no link) is USA Today. For what we think is the best reason in the world. Those bastards happily list all the winning stars and shows, but their writing coverage gives titles only – no writers’ names! (Although we do get a chuckle out of the fact that they also blew off the directors’ names as well.)

Get real, USA Today. Showbiz is about the people working their butts off to do the best jobs they can. They deserve to be called out for their success.

More on the Emmys next year. Or not. We’ll see.
