    One for the hosting of last year`s Tony award and one for the guest appearance on Glee. It will be interesting to see whether he would be able to get a third one next sunday.

    Neil Patrick Harris earned his first-ever Emmy Awards at Saturday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles for his guest spot on "Glee" and for hosting the 63rd Annual Tony Awards.

    Harris' Emmys are the first in his decades-long television career. He is also nominated for best supporting actor in a comedy series for "How I Met Your Mother." That award will be handed out at next Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards.

    When accepting his guest actor prize Saturday, Harris congratulated fellow "Glee" nominee Mike O'Malley for his work on the show, and thanked his partner, David Burtka. For his Tony win, Harris said, "I want to thank Boomer from The Envelope who told me I was even eligible for this award!" The actor was referring to a gaffe discovered by the Los Angeles Times that excluded him from the original nominees' list.

    Betty White won the Emmy Award for outstanding guest actress in a comedy series for her hosting turn on "Saturday Night Live." The veteran actress was not on hand to receive her trophy at the Nokia Theater event, but presenters John Lithgow and Clyde Phillips accepted the prize on her behalf.

    White was the favorite to win the category and was competing against Kristin Chenoweth ("Glee"), Jane Lynch ("Two and a Half Men"), Christine Baranski ("The Big Bang Theory"), Elaine Stritch ("30 Rock") and Kathryn Joosten ("Desperate Housewives").

    Another favorite, John Lithgow, took home the prize for outstanding guest actor in a drama series for his season-long arc on "Dexter." Lithgow, who accidentally thanked HBO instead of Showtime during his acceptance speech, had stacked the Emmy cards in his favor by submitting himself as a guest instead of a supporting player for the serial killer drama.

    A Creative Arts Emmy also went to ad firm Weiden + Kennedy for its Old Spice commercial featuring Isaiah Mustafa, who told THR before the show, "This is my first awards show and I get to be nominated alongside Betty White!"

    White's Snickers ad was also in contention.

    The day's other winners included "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" as best reality series, "Survivor" host Jeff Probst as best reality show host, and Ann-Margret for her guest starring role on "Law and Order: SVU."

    You wouldn't be saying that if you lived here. He's had a plethora of TV shows shown over the years now; is the spokesperson for a major supermarket chain and therefore on the TV in ads every five friggin minutes (I actually worked in PR at the HQ of said chain when he signed up ten years ago and apparently he had a pretty bad coke problem at least back then, just sayin); has loads of books out, constantly bringing out new titles, which fill the displays in the entrance to book shops and supermarkets; aligned one TV show about meals in schools with a major poiltical/media campaign and was, therefore, frequently in the headlines ...

    Need I go on?

    I'm sure the nation gives out a collective groan when he appears on TV.

    I simply cannot stand Jamie Oliver.

    Actually, my main bone of contention, and possibly inverted snobbery on my part, is his fake accent, known as "mockney". He's from a very upper middle class background, was privately educated at an elite school, yet he feigns a working class London accent. All part of his image. Guy Ritchie does the same thing - pretending to be all gangster bad boy when in reality he was brought up to talk like Prince Charles.

    I actually have to reverse my Geordie (Newcastle) accent in the opposite way to get ahead in my career, and put on a "posh" voice in the office. Makes me feel like a fake: I have near perfect syntax/grammar and a reasonably extensive vocabulary yet, were I to convey my ideas using my natural accent, I'd probably be dismissed as being somewhat uneducated. Whilst some fool with the right sounding vowels but piss pooor language skills would get away with it.

    Anyway, sorry to hijack your thread. Venting and projecting is all.
