Can 'The Office' wedding episode catch Emmy bouquet?
Last night's one-hour wedding special on "The Office" drew rave reviews from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, Time, Newsday and the Star-Ledger. And our forum posters were quick to weigh in with their opinions on the long-awaited nuptials of Pam and Jim as well.
Most were pleased with the overall tone and quality of this installment of "The Office" that showcased supporting players Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski. And many made note of the Emmy Awards potential of various elements of the episode.
Said adamunc, "Definitely a series tape, and a front-runner for writing and directing nods. Also, potentially worthy submissions for Fischer, Krasinski, Helms, and Wilson. The final sequence was just inspired."
For Moviemjk102, "Perfect on almost every level. Definitely a strong submission for Series, Writing, Directing, and for both Fischer and Krasinski, though the entire ensemble was superb. Both laugh out loud funny and very moving, with some great twists littered in there (Jim revealing the pregnancy, Jim and Pam getting married on the boat, Michael and Pam's mum hooking up). Easily one of the best episodes of the series."
And Jss0058 said, "It has always confused me that Krasinski can't even get nominated for supporting actor. This tape just proves how big of a mistake that has been. I'm not holding out that it will change this year, but it sure would be nice and this tape could give him a shot at a win (same for the wonderful Fischer)."
