Reactions to the Emmy Awards ceremony last night were enthusiastic and varied in the Twitter Report feed. Warren Ellis wished Jay Leno had had something else to do, while Nathan Fillion wished he could have received a little more attention and Mark Brooks made a "True Blood" discovery.
Big topics in comics were brought up as well, as Eric Powell made a historical claim to using zombies before they were cool, and Christos Gage felt left out when he realized he doesn't have a nemesis in the industry. Find out if you can help him out with his problem below where you'll also find some articulate opinions about "Mad Men" and "Glee."
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your Twitter Report for August 30, 2010.
Emmy Awards pt. 1: @warrenellis The Emmys would be more interesting if Jay Leno arrived on a motorbike made from Johnny Carson's bones.
-Warren Ellis, Writer ("Transmetropolitan," "Planetary")
Emmy Awards pt. 2: @NathanFillion Wow. All done at Emmys. It was an honor just to be nominated. Oh. Wait. Rats.
-Nathan Fillion, Actor ("Serenity," "Firefly")
Emmy Awards pt. 3: @MarkBrooksArt Had no idea that Eric was so tall or that Bill was so short. #Trueblood #Emmys
-Mark Brooks, Artist ("Cable & Deadpool," "Dark Reign: Young Avengers")
Emmy Awards pt. 4: @simonpegg Back. Watched the A-Team on the flight then slept a solid seven. Jane won the EMMY. Kristen, the time will come when you will own Earth.
-Simon Pegg, Actor ("The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn," "Star Trek")
@rstevens Twilight would be a great book if you replaced the vampires with the family from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. #mustresistEATINGYOU
-R. Stevens, Writer/Artist ("Diesel Sweeties," "LOLbots")
Zombies pt. 1: @goonguy I remember pitching the Goon & publishers rejected it because it had zombies in it. Now every frickin' thing has zombies in it.
-Eric Powell, Writer/Artist ("The Goon," "Action Comics")
Zombies pt. 2: @goonguy Btw, comic industry, Walking Dead & the Goon say, "You're Welcome."
"Mad Men" pt. 1: @KodyChamberlain I wish these fake Mad Men ads were better written. It's a strong concept, but their advertising concepts aren't very clever.
-Kody Chamberlain, Artist ("Shang-Chi: Master of Kung Fu," "Sweets")
"Mad Men" pt. 2: @Remender A series best for Mad Men tonight.
-Rick Remender, Writer ("Fear Agent," "Punisher")
@badmachinery I think Glee is one of those things you either get or you don't. Like the bubonic plague.
-John Allison, Writer/Artist ("Scary Go Round," "Bad Machinery")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@Christosgage It's become clear to me that I'm missing out by not having a comics industry feud. Who wants to feud with me?
-Christos Gage, Writer ("Union Jack," "Absolution")
