EMMYS: Seth Meyers Adds Comedic Spark To Emmy Show’s Deja Vu
I am not going to rehash all the Emmy Awards analysis and reporting already done on this site earlier tonight. It is what it is and opinions are what they are. And on at least one other trade site they are calling for a complete overhaul of the Emmy process but I don't think even that would make these awards any easier to predict than they are now. The truth is obvious to anyone who has ever been around this game long enough: Emmys are not predictable and those who say… Read
Emmys Analysis: ‘Breaking Bad’ & ‘Modern Family’ March Into History Books As Repeat Series Winners Dominate
Breaking Bad has long been mentioned alongside HBO's The Sopranos as two of the best drama series ever. The dark AMC drama received a major validation tonight with a big sendoff, earning five Emmy Awards, including best drama series. It became only the second drama to win the top prize for its final season, joining Sopranos. And Breaking Bad did it in an emphatic way — sweeping the top categories, including best actor Bryan Cranston, and best supporting actors Aaron Paul… Read

EMMYS: ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Number Funny By Accident (Video)
Tonight's “Weird Al” Yankovic number at the Emmy Awards — a parody of TV series theme songs — was less funny for the new lyrics written for the tunes than for the dance tribute to Emmy shows gone by.

EMMYS: Kathy Bates Pays Tribute To Robin Williams, Talks Career Resurgence
Kathy Bates said she was too flustered onstage to remember to speak these words -- but backstage her voice quavered as she said she wished she had dedicated her Emmy to Robin Williams. She said, "I mostly wanted to say: 'Look, I won this time. This one's for you."
The actress explained that the line would have referred to the several times that Williams had been gracious to her at awards ceremonies. In the days before cell phones, she recalled winning a Golden Globe Award… Read
EMMYS: Sarah Silverman On Pot, Nudity & Nazis
When it comes to being outspoken, Sarah Silverman never shies away from it, especially tonight after collecting an Emmy for writing on her HBO variety special We Are Miracle. The timing of her backstage appearance was tough as it came after she, along with everyone else, watched the tribute to Robin Williams on the telecast. When asked about her stoned look on the red carpet, Silverman defended herself, "I was carrying pot in my purse for later. It's legal! I like to have… Read

Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr And Kurt Sutter Live-Blog The Emmys
MIKE FLEMING: So I am here at the lovely home of Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter to witness the pageantry of the 66th Prime Time Emmy Awards. I asked him to be my play by play partner because I have watched his show from moment one, and for my money, it is the best drama series that most consistently gets ignored by the Emmy voters. I figured that since he is going into the seventh and final season of a show that is headed towards an explosive conclusion, maybe this… Read
EMMYS: Robin Williams “Made Us Laugh. Hard,” Billy Crystal Reminisces In Emotional Tribute (Video)
"He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him on television and movies, in nightclubs, arenas, hospitals, homeless shelters, for the troops overseas, and even in a dying girl's living room for her last wish," Billy Crystal said in an emotional tribute to Robin Williams, at the end of tonight's In Memoriam segment.
"I spent many happy hours with Robin on stage. I used to think if I could just put a saddle on (him) and stay on eight seconds I was going to be okay. He was… Read
EMMYS: Allison Janney On Her Rare Second Win This Year
In TV demographic terms, 54-year-old Allison Janney is almost an "outlier." That's the buzzword describing two polar opposite groups: The under 25s and over 55s, whose TV habits seems to baffle today's eyeball counters.
But wherever she falls on the demo chart, Janney ranks as one midlife actress who's having a pretty good year. She accomplished the rare feat of winning two Emmys in the same year — something Cloris Leachman did in 1975 and Stockard Channing in 2002… Read
