Hugh Laurie made "House" a household word. Phrases like "Seriously?", "Everybody Lies", "Oh Snap!" which are also known as "Houseisms" have become a part of our daily conversations. Some of the funniest one-liners ever heard on television were emanated by Dr. Gregory House over the course of eight years. House, M.D. is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most watched television show in the world. You just couldn't help but be captivated by the character and his interaction with Wilson, Cuddy, his fellows, and of course, his patients.
So...in honor of Hugh's brilliant portrayal of who is by far the most captivating and interesting television character of the modern era, my friend, writer Max Weiss, editor of Baltimore Magazine, and all-around awesome chick, wrote an incredible piece on the fact that despite his brilliant portrayal of the character, and six nominations, Hugh didn't win a single Emmy. We feel he was robbed, maybe not in the final season but certainly in prior seasons. Knowing Hugh, he'll just use this to fuel the self-deprecating humor he's so famous for.
While an Emmy is nice, it's just a statue that sits on a shelf collecting dust. The real prize is that the character and the actor who portrayed him will be remembered by millions of people long after the show is over.
Please, take a moment and read Max's piece here ---> "Hugh've been snubbed."
Enjoy and let Max how how much you enjoyed it.
