Outlander Not Your Usual Emmys for Everything


Last evening, some TW friends were asking me to do another posting.  I said, “I need inspiration!” and promptly came up with creating new categories for EmmysforOutlander!   I will give credit for the idea to whomever came up with it, but I am writing this all alone!

Sign an autographed picture, write the blog, sign a picture, write the blog.  Hand cramps are coming and I'm  all alone!

I have been reviewing many of the memorable scenes in Season One, (because that is all I have to look at right now, thank you very much, Starz)!   Nevertheless, besides the more obvious nominations (Sam, Cait, Tobias, Ron D. Moore, Writers, Directors, Costume Design, Music, Sets, Cinemetography, etc.)  There are a few notable things that the Emmys often overlook.

 

Emmy for Coolest Car Ever goes to Fraaaank Randall.

This car is obviously a chick magnet and the ONLY reason I would hesitate to pick Jamie over Fraaaaank.   Obviously, Claire was young and gullible when she fell for Frank.  Perhaps even a little shallow….

You know, Fraaaank, the only reason I agreed to come with you on this boring history trip, was your car.

I don't know where Claire is, but thank God she left the car and the keys!  I couldn't live without them!

Emmy for Best Jamie Dismount (from a horse) Without Exposing His “Wowwhatawillie”  goes to Sam Heughan. (Mentioned dishonorably by @BevH111)

Good One…Optimum thigh without XXX rating.

Emmy for The Most Ridiculous Question and Answer Ever  goes to Herself and the OL Writers.  When Jamie says to Claire, “I could throw you over my shoulder.  Now, you don’t want me to do that, do ya?”

Did he just say he’d throw me over his shoulder? Oh my…..

And she says. “No!”    How many of us said….

Emmy for Scrawniest Cat goes to the Cat eating wedding feast leftovers on the table. (Mentioned dishonorably by @BevH111)

I was unable to find a picture of the cat. I think he choked on a fish bone.  Accepting posthumously for Scrawny Cat is his best friend who ate all the food before Scrawny could get anything but bones.

My last words to Scrawny Cat were. “It’s too bad I never learned the Heimlich Maneuver.”

The Emmy for Most Unusual Legs was shared by Colum MacKenzie closely followed by Peg Leg Ian.

Ye do the Hokey-Pokey and ye turn yourself around. That’s what it’s all about! Everybody dance!

Did anyone find it strange that the British took Ian’s wooden leg and made him hop home? But they arrested Jamie and Colin?

Emmy for the Most Goosebumps on a Pair of Bewbs goes to Leghair.

Later in the book,  Jamie talks about getting a cockstand every time he passes a poultry shop. Could this be the cause?

Emmy for Most Sexual Activity on One TV Show Without Being Gratuitous goes to Ron D. Moore. (If he says it isn’t gratuitous, then it isn’t.)

” I must remember to mention that we are not being gratuitous every time someone asks about all of the OL sex and assaults. I don’t want to be cheesy!”

 

Emmy for the Best Rescue of a Hero goes to the Heiland Coos. (Mentioned dishonorably by @BevH111)

“Done in by Cows? And I was worried that hanging Jamie was an ignoble death! I think I’m covered in cow poo.”

Emmy for the Best Bathing Suit Design goes to Mill Pond Jamie.

They almost made me wear he Grandpa pants like in the book, but I convinced Ron that this wasn't gratuitous.

I won’t dance for any amount of money! All right, I’ll take half of that apple.

I know I ate the apple, but do I really have to?

Emmy for the Show Most in Need of Sub-Titles goes to Outlander

Do we look fake?  Is this our good side? Ron said to just stand very still and buzz. So we are.

While I am sure Outlander will garner many awards for the key performances, I wanted to recognize “the little people” on behalf of Sam.
