Let’s all celebrate Benjamin Linus

Congratulations to Michael Emerson, for his Emmy win tonight, for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. You can keep your Don Draper. I’ll take Benjamin Linus as the best character currently on series television.

How long ’til Lost starts again?


  1. Glad to read that he won. Well earned!

  2. Man when I saw him win it reminded me of how boring my Wednesdays have become.

  3. Emerson’s win was certainly well-deserved. Apart from the great DR. HORRIBLE sketch, this was the main highlight of last night’s broadcast.

    Well, they haven’t released a season 6 premiere date yet, but if it starts on a Wednesday, at roughly the same date and time season 5 started, then as of this writing, we have 121 days, 11 hours 27 minutes, and 34 seconds.

    Not that I’m counting or anything…

  5. Didn’t Lost air on Thursday nights last year?

  6. Season four was on Thursdays.

    Hooray for Michael Emerson!

    But where is the love for Kristin Chenoweth? There’s an emptiness in my heart this TV season without Olive Snook and the Pushing Daisies gang. :’-(

  8. ~chris says:

    …the love for Kristin here at The Beat, that is.

  9. hells yeah! might try to get him on the show tonight to chat about it if he’s not busy shooting.

  10. Xenos says:

    We all know Ben killed any Emmy voters who were going to vote for anyone else.

  11. What I’m worried about is that, if and when Lost comes back – will it be conflicting with the new Human Target series?
