Ummm…am I crazy or did Jesse Tyler Ferguson just refer to the show Big Bang Theory as ‘Big Bang ratings…I mean Theory’? He and the rest of the Modern Family cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble for the third year in a row, and Jesse Tyler was elected by his costars to speak for them. And I’m preeeeetty sure that’s what he said. On the mic. In front of everyone. Super sassy.
And this came right after Tina Fey won for 30 Rock and asked people to watch the finale on Thursday and ‘just tape Big Bang Theory for once’. Apparently Big Bang Theory is like the ‘it’ show to hate this year. It’s like loving Adele or hating Anne Hathaway. It’s become universal. It’s the trend to watch this year. For the rest of the award season, when Giuliana Rancic asks people, “Who are you wearing?” no one’s ever gonna say Dior or Chanel or Zac Posen. They’ll say, “Not the cast of Big Bang Theory, that’s for sure.” It’s the hottest new label.
Tina’s comment was much funnier than Jesse Tyler’s snarky version, but what’s with all the shade tonight guys? Isn’t this supposed to be an award show for actors by actors? You guys all voted for each other, so why we gotta be like this? I guess in my head I assume that everyone watches the same shows that I do, so my brain thinks that 30 Rock and Modern Family are more popular than Big Bang Theory. But in real life, it’s not, and I guess it makes sense that the actors would get peeved about it. But maybe save your comments for your living room, JTF. Tina, you’re fine. You can stay as long as you like and say whatever you need.
