The nominations for the 37th Annual Daytime Emmys came out today, with eight nominations each for The Ellen DeGeneres Show and comedian-laden The Electric Company, plus three nods for the soon-to-be-cancelled Bonnie Hunt Show. Awards will be handed out June 27 in Las Vegas, televised on CBS. You can view the full list of nominees here.
Also of note for the comedy community...
One of the people I hoped to see at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland but could not see last weekend was Todd Glass, who suffered a heart attack after performing onstage at Largo last week in Los Angeles. He's OK, thanks to Jeffrey Ross and others who looked out for him when he collapsed. And even more to his credit, Glass talked about his experience with Bonnie Hunt, in an appearance which will appear on TVs around the globe today (check your listings: 2 p.m. on NBC in NYC; 3 p.m. in L.A., but earlier perhaps where you live). I cannot tell you how happy I am that he appears to be OK now.
Glass also performed stand-up on Hunt's show, which looks like it aired before the panel session. He didn't hold back much on the energy, despite what he went through last week. Roll that clip here:
This clip arrived in my inbox earlier this week, and I can safely say that this shows a different side of Bonnie Hunt than I think we've seen from her in quite some time. Buttoned-up she is not today. On her daytime talker today, you'll get to see Hunt "audition" for American Idol pretending to be Kim Zolciak, one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Is that something you'd like to see? If I told you that Hunt shows off some impressive cleavage, would that change your mind? Then click here.
