So yeah, I’ve spent the day working through Emmy rage issues. No Lost for best drama? No Jessica Walter? No Eva Longoria? No John Krasinski or Donald Faison or Lauren Ambrose? But yet (urgh) Charlie Sheen, Alfre Woodard (for that role?), and Stockard Frickin’ Channing? For Out of Practice?! Gah!

Okay, deep breaths. Deep. Breaths. Focus on the positives. Like Lisa Kudrow (pictured) finally getting the respect that she’s entitled to for her deeply nuanced turn as Valerie Cherish in The Comeback. Ah, yes, The Comeback, my favorite show… that got canceled by HBO! Um, er, RAGE!

No, no, no. Happy place. Happy. Place. I know. Let’s channel our feelings through the Valerie Cherish audio clips provided by the wonderful folks at Save Valerie Cherish. Here we go…

-I’m having fantasies of Valerie Lisa Kudrow hitting the Emmy red carpet with this line.

-Hearing Frances Conroy’s name get announced in the Best Actress in a Drama category for the dearly departed Six Feet Under makes me want to shout the following sentiment.

-Really? No major nods for Battlestar Galactica? Where’s the love?

-Someone’s bound to say something like this when My Name Is Earl‘s Jaime Pressly upgrades from trollop drag to designer duds for the Emmy ceremony.

-At last, Will Arnett gets himself a nomination for Arrested Development! Won’t you join me on a celebratory ditty?

-And finally, this jaunty catchphrase pretty much sums up my feelings regarding the inclusion of jank choices like Debra Messing, Jane Kaczmarek, Geena Davis, and William Shatner.

Can I get a what-what?
