It’s time for “Ugly Betty” to Glam Up!

ABC has begun collecting feedback from focus groups in order to determine Betty’s “new” look for the upcoming season of “Ugly Betty”. This would be the show’s 4th season, so I do believe it is time to transform Betty’s “look”. Besides, four years is a long time to be wearing braces. They have to come off eventually. In the original series “Betty la fea”, Betty eventually gets a makeover. Of course we wouldn’t want Betty all glammed up right away. It would take away the charm of what “Ugly Betty” is. It has to be gradual, like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly – it takes time.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Silvio Horta talked about Betty’s “transformation”. This what he said on the subject: “There’s going to be a progression in her look overall,” he said. “It’ll still be Betty, but you’ll see some growth in that direction.”

I’m looking forward to the upcoming season of “Ugly Betty”. I admit I have a lot of catching up to do as I missed most of Season 3, but I’ll watch the reruns on line soon enough.  🙂

2009 Emmy Nominations

The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2009. Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) will have hosting duties. In my opinion there were some surprise snubs. Notably missing from the nominees were America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”), Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”), and Anna Paquin who won a Golden Globe for her performance in “True Blood” this year.

Kudos to “Chuck” for receiving one nomination for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for “Chuck versus The First Date” and an extra special thumbs up to “Legend of the Seeker” for receiving its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for its series premiere: “Prophecy”. I also hope that this is the year that either Chandra Wilson or Sandra Oh will win an Emmy for their work on “Grey’s Anatomy”.
