It's not TV, it's HBO!

Congratulations to the cast & crew of the Sopranos for finally winning an Emmy for Best Drama!! We all know these awards suck big time (don't get me started on the oscars, cannes, etc.; i mean it took the emmys 5 seasons to give the sopranos best drama?!?) but still it's good to see that at least some quality once and a while gets recognition. And since The Sopranos is the finest of the finest coming out of US TV-scape, they deserve it all the more.

The scripts are so well written that even 24 is losing its glory. Almost all episodes have this amazing balance between humor, misery, violence, glory, happiness and rawness. I honestly can only name a few films over the past years that are equal to the cleverness and greatness of The Sopranos' scripts. HBO is doing such a good job at getting all the best scriptwriters to work for them (see also six feet under). I could only wish to see something like this happen overhere.

So props to David Chase for creating the series and I got to mention James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano) as well because even with all the best scriptwriters in the world, you need someone like Gandolfini to make it to eternity. Gandolfini is like God right now, I can't see anyone touching his status at the moment as best actor in Hollywood (no not even sam rockwell :).

And now let's make some ziti and just shut the fuck up.
