idris is all we have...

Did anyone watch the Emmys last night?  Yeah, me neither. But you know I promptly went  through the all the red carpet photos as soon as I logged on this morning. And to be honest, I wasn't really that impressed with those either. 

But something that did occur to me as I clicked my way through all the hits and misses, was the lack of lust- worthy black actors. I mean, whether the dresses were hot or not, the majority of the women were still beautiful and certified girl-crush material.  But the boys? Eh, not so much. 

Like forreal, forreal, are there are no hot straight black men on television?? 

As much as it pains me to say it ('cause you know Love & Basketball is one of my most FAVORITE movies ever), Omar Epps is over. I don't know what in the molten-plastic-plastic-looking-botox-hell is going on with LL Cool J face. Something about Gary Dourdan continues to be a yawn. And crazy ass Tracy Morgan is just well, no thank you.

Seriously?  I'm kind of sad about this. I mean, I can appreciate the sexiness in whatever color it arrives- um hello Adrian Grenier but it might be nice to have something with a little melanin to gawk at every one in a while. I'm just saying.


  1. Preach! But ain't that always how it is? It woudl be nice of the cast of The Game was ever nominated or sent an invite..

  2. what about homeboy on TRUE BLOOD...Is he gay??? Please say it ain't so!!

  3. Idris--he is so beautiful. But I also have a crush on Don Cheadle. There is just something about his poise and intelligence!
