The Emmys – Short on LOST glory, Long on LOST scoops

It’s true,  Michael Emerson didn’t win, and hope as we might… either did LOST.  But that’s okay, as many of you have said if the mainstream suddenly got LOST, what would we have to justify our obsession?

What did come out of the Emmy ceremony, however, was a ton of LOST related scoops!  So read on for some tidbits, and beware of possible spoilers. 


First up come these two videos from TVGuide. Red carpet interviews with Michael Emerson and Emilie De Ravin.

Next up is some words from Korbi at Zap2IT.  Again, her scoops were garnered from the red carpet and this time involved some very cool hints from Jorge Garcia, Emerson (again), and Evangeline Lilly.

Speaking of tight sets on lock down — like that
transition? — Jorge Garcia broke the radio silence and gave me some
Lost scoop: “I’ve read up to script four at this point. But script one
blew my mind. It’s really, really crazy. It starts right where we left
off. Hurley is right where Sayid picked him up in the mental
institution. We see what happens to the island in that first episode
and it’s pretty insane. I was just like, wait a minute, what was that
again? I’m still just trying to wrap my head around it.” Jorge said
getting the Oceanic 6 back to the island is a major theme this year,
but he’s more curious about how the whole power struggle between
Widmore and Ben Linus is going to pan out: “There was some really cool
stuff that came out in this last episode [four]. Actually, there’s a
great reveal in the third one too. Two was pretty fun, but there’s
something in the fourth that’s really cool. Also, I get to wear
something in episode four that I’m very excited about.”

As for
changes to the show in season five, Jorge said it’s tricky to
categorize the episodes as ‘anybody centric’: “It’s not as clear cut as
it’s been in the past. We don’t have the moments where someone stares
off into space and then we cut to something that happened in their
previous life. They’ve gone in a slightly different direction as far as
how they’re telling the story and they’re definitely trying to show
what’s going on with more people in every given episode.”

Evangeline
Lilly, who was running around the carpet looking for her girlfriends,
Elizabeth Mitchell and Yunjin Kim, agreed: “It’s a whole new format.
And all the original characters are revolutionized, so what you’re used
to watching in Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Hurley, Sayid, and even Sun who’s
been steady since season one, is [out the window]. We’re all brand new
people. It’s very exciting to sort of act a new character and not the
same thing over and over again.”

Unfortunately for Michael
Emerson — who walked the carpet with wife Carrie Preston, whom you may
recognize from True Blood — he hasn’t been doing much acting at all as
of late: “I honestly haven’t worked that much so far [in the first four
episodes]. You won’t see a lot of me early on [in the season]. I think
they’re saving up something terrible for me to do here pretty soon.” On
the subject of what we can expect, Michael said that while getting back
to the island seems to be one of the plot lines, they’re still not sure
why they have to do that. But they are determined nonetheless. He also
said he is surprised by the amazing amount of mobility in season five:
“We’re all over the place. It’s a real ride now. You know, every
season, Lost ramps it up a notch, they always add some new device, some
new convention. And I think, as time goes by, the show gets a little
more fragmented, a little more of a puzzle.” Oh, perfect…”
