Andy Samberg Emmys 3

Reality TV star turned GOP White House hopeful Donald Trump, who knows how to milk a TV moment, got loads of air time this morning calling last night's Emmy Awards ceremony "a badge of courage" for him and wondering why President Obama hadn't lept to his defense. "It's sort of amazing when you think of it — you're watching television, you're watching the Emmys, and your name is mentioned," he simpered to the Fox & Friends gang. “Is the president going to defend me because… Read


Emmys: Categories We Wish We’d Seen

Andy Samberg Kissing Emmy Statue

This year's Emmy Awards might have been a little depressing, in that it's 2015 and the industry handed out its very first best Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy to a black woman, Viola Davis, who explained onstage: “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.” If only social media had gotten its knickers as knotted over this industry's lack of diversity over the years as social… Read

Back on a Sunday after last year's move to Monday by NBC, and up against Sunday Night Football, there was some history and some surprises last night on the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards. The history saw barrier-breaking wins by Viola Davis and by HBO's Game Of Thrones – even as the Emmys took a big hit in the ratings.

Tom Brady’s New England Patriots blew out the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon and Michael Strahan and Terry Bradshaw were on hand to provide a smooth segue for Fox into the 67th Emmy Awards. The three-hour parade, led by host Andy Samberg, scored more often than it fumbled — even if there were even fewer surprises on the show than in the gridiron match preceding it.
