Last night’s Emmys telecast was a fun one. Before I post all the winners I want to take a second to talk about the highlights!
I have to say my favorite moment of the night was when they announced the best actress category and all the nominees took the stage like a beauty pageant. It as classic! What was even more awesome was Melissa McCarthy winning! I was so rooting for her, and was almost teary-eyed when she won!
The other highlight (well more odd than a highlight) was Charlie Sheen’s speech as he announced the best comedy actor…he said, “I want to take a moment to get something off my chest, to say a few words to everyone here from Two and a Half Men. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television.” And then when Jim Parsons from Big Bang (another Chuck Lorre show) won, he literally went up there and said, “This is odd for so many reasons.” F’n hilarious.

Although comedy is her profession, Nadine has accomplished a lot in her young age. She is a national champion black belt, a world-class soccer player, and an avid snowboarder. She started playing soccer at the age of 4, and continued playing through college where she majored in Biology, but quickly realized her destiny was to tell jokes, not to wear a lab coat. So she decided to be funny while finishing her Bachelors Degree in biology and continued on to get her M.B.A. Nadine’s comedy style is much like her athleticism, fearless. She’s made her way up the comedy ladder very quickly, and has become a club favorite at many of the country’s top comedy clubs, including the Improv chain. Performing in the Boston Comedy Festival and being noted as the “one of the youngest and brightest up and comers” and traveling to the Middle East to entertain the troops are just a few of her notable accomplishments. These days Nadine splits time between the stage, a radio studio, her computer blogging, and a television studio. Nadine’s TV, Radio, Writing credits include: national commercials, talking head roles on E!
