Old Spice, Smell Like a Man Man, won Best Commerical of the Year. From the Hollywood Reporter: "Actor Isaiah Mustafa — a.k.a the Old Spice Guy — also made his first trip to the Emmy stage alongside reps from Wieden+Kennedy, the agency that created his hit series of commercials for Old Spice, who apologized for Mustafa’s having to wear a shirt "due to the dress code."

25385 In May of 1997 Matt Sheckel, who was in our AV group at the time, was killed by a delivery truck, while riding his bike through the intersection of SE Taylor and 37th, along one of the busiest bike corridors in Portland. The ‘memorial lighthouse’ at that intersection was erected in his honor. On Thursday August 19th, 2010, Matt would have turned 40. There will be a gathering at the intersection, followed by a short memorial ride…honoring Matt and all the other cyclists who have been killed while riding.

Portlandia

Portlandia
From the IFC website

IFC has greenlit "Portlandia," an original comedy series that lovingly skewers illustrates the people and values of Portland, Ore. We're guessing a lot of recycling, rain gear, and coffee drinking will be happening.

Fred Armisen of "Saturday Night Live" fame and Carrie Brownstein, the vocalist/guitarist from Portland band Sleater-Kinney (and former W+K employee) will star in the series, alongside guest stars Kyle "Twin Peaks" MacLachlan and Aubrey Plaza from "Parks and Recreation".

In the series' premiere, viewers will meet the owners of a feminist book store; a militant bike messenger; an artsy couple who put cut-outs of birds on everything; and a punk rock couple negotiating a "safe word" to help govern their love life. All presented with the trademark humor found in Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen's previous work. Yeah, we're talking about their brilliant collaboration Thunderant.

Armisen and Brownstein write the series with Allison Silverman from "The Colbert Report" and Jonathan Krisel of "SNL" and "Tim and Eric", who is also the series' director. The series is executive produced by Lorne Michaels. "Portlandia" begins production later this month and is shot entirely on location in Portland.

Rumor has it they may be filming at W+K!
