Favorite Pic of the Day for September 18th

Snow & Sand
-See more of this years EMMY Nominations below-

Check out today's Birthday's HERE:


First off, today's EMMY Post is a bit last minute. I have been covering Award shows on FH the last few years with a skin salute to the nominee's. Recently, they began to get a bit repetitive, and to be honest, they have been getting a little boring to put together, the nominee's were often the same actors, year after year. (how many nude Bryan Cranston scenes can you enthusiastically cap...) I also wasn't sure readers were enjoying the award themed days.But, after getting home tonight, my need for tradition took over...

I have always loved award shows, ever since I was a little kid. I admit the bloom is a bit off the rose, but growing up in a small city, far far away from Hollywood, they were a bit of window to a world I spent a lot of time dreaming about. Every award show has a few moments that stand out. I remember Charlie's Angels reuniting at the 2006 EMMY'S and the DALLAS women given an award to Jane Fonda in the late 80's.

I also love the 'theme song' numbers that take me back recording TV show intros on my little 12 inch bedroom TV when I was growing up. I love television, and the EMMY'S always kick off the award season, and the fall television season. To stimulate my interest this year, I decided to take a brief look back to when I first started watching the EMMY'S. It gave me a renewed interest in posting this year. Hope you enjoy this year's edition and if not remember, the EMMY'S only come along once a year!

EMMY'S The Men of L.A LAW

It seems there's always one show that shines brighter than all the others at THE EMMY'S.  Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Cheers and Homeland are just a few of the shows that shown bright for a few fleeting years.  Very quickly though, they are replaced by a new show with a new cast, just waiting to steal the spotlight.

Harry Hamlin as Michael Kuzak 

L.A Law was one of the shows getting the most acclaim when I first remember watching The EMMY'S in the mid-eighties. I didn't really watch L.A Law at the time, but when I got older, I began to watch enough to develop a major crus on Harry Hamlin.

Save Me (1994)

Hamlin, along with Jimmy Smits and Corbin Bernsen were the original three younger male leads. For a short while, I included Blair Underwood and A Martinez but figured I would stick to the original trio.

Shameless (2012)

Although Hamlin had my heart at the time, I grew to appreciate the talents of Jimmy Smits as well.  I have to admit, I was never much of a fan of Bernsen, but that changed when looking for images for this piece.  Bernsen's hot hairy chest, and squeeze worthy butt, look mighty fine in the images and videos from Major League.

Corbin Bernsen as Arnie Becker 

Hello Again (1987)

Major League (1989)

Jimmy Smits as Victor Sifuentes

Switch (1991)

NYPD Blue (1996)

Sons of Anarchy (2013)
