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!
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….
Emmy for Best Jamie Dismount (from a horse) Without Exposing His “Wowwhatawillie” goes to Sam Heughan. (Mentioned dishonorably by @BevH111)
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?”
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.
The Emmy for Most Unusual Legs was shared by Colum MacKenzie closely followed by Peg Leg Ian.
Emmy for the Most Goosebumps on a Pair of Bewbs goes to Leghair.
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.)
Emmy for the Best Rescue of a Hero goes to the Heiland Coos. (Mentioned dishonorably by @BevH111)
Emmy for the Best Bathing Suit Design goes to Mill Pond Jamie.
Emmy for the Most Bodice Ripping That Wasn’t Gratuitous goes to Claire Fraser and Jenny Fraser
Emmy for Best Dancing Under Duress goes to Murtaugh. (Mentioned dishonorably by @BevH111)
Emmy for the Show Most in Need of Sub-Titles goes to Outlander
Emmy for the Best Standing Stones goe to the Craig na Dune Standing Stones
While I am sure Outlander will garner many awards for the key performances, I wanted to recognize “the little people” on behalf of Sam.
