I’m Super-Ecstatic About:
* The nods for Friday Night Lights‘ long-overdue leads, Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton.
* Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler being up for lead actress.
* Glee standout Chris Colfer sneaking into the supporting-actor race. Ditto his awesome TV dad, Mike O’Malley (for guest actor).

* All the Modern Family love.
* Jim Parsons’ second consecutive nod for The Big Bang Theory.
* The Good Wife‘s rockin’ female trio (Julianna Margulies, Archie Panjabi, and Christine Baranski) all making the cut.

The wait is over! No, I’m not referring to True Blood‘s season 3 premiere. You still have another week to go for that. I’m talking about the video from last Tuesday’s super-fun True Blood Ultimate Fan Experience Q&A — featuring the show’s principal cast and hosted by yours truly(!) — which is now available for your viewing pleasure after the jump. Feel free to tell me what a bloody fantastic job I did in the comments section! READ FULL STORY
Question: Any chance Shonda Rhimes will do an about-face and give Derek and Meredith a real wedding on Grey’s Anatomy? She backed down on her “no babies” stance, so I’m hoping maybe she changed her mind about the wedding thing too. A girl can dream. —Rebecca
Ausiello: I did some snooping, and it appears the province of Shondaland still legally recognizes Post-It Note weddings. “I deeply appreciate the fans and how much they care about Meredith and Derek, but as a woman and a human being and the mother of a girl, I just feel like this idea that somebody in a big white dress is the be-all and end-all of human existence is a terrible message to send out,” maintains Rhimes. “I felt like Meredith and Derek’s choice to be together becomes a marriage of equals as opposed to some faux fairy tale. And while I love a good wedding, I felt like for Meredith, it was so counter to who she is as a human being. And I love the fact that Derek doesn’t need her to do it. I get why the fans want it; I’d probably want it too if I was just watching. But I literally feel sick every time I think about Meredith in a big white poufy dress.” READ FULL STORY
Your favorite TV scoopster hosted last night’s True Blood Ultimate Fan Experience and all he brought you back was…this awesome photo! Okay, that’s not all I brought you back. I also come bearing two major spoilers from exec producer Alan Ball (Sookie’s headed for a dark spell! Someone’s getting a new hairdo!), as well as a new extended season 3 trailer (embedded below) that’s sure to make the slow march to the June 13 premiere even more agonizing. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY
