The Emmy Awards Live Blog

Jack Gray
AC360° Writer/Producer

Good evening and welcome to the AC360° Emmy Awards Live Blog. The winners, the losers, possible Kanye West interruptions…we’ve got your running commentary. And sure, considering all that’s going on in the world, the Emmys aren’t hugely important. But if you’re looking to get away from the bleak news-of-the-day for a few hours, then this blog is the place for you.

As for my qualifications to moderate this blog, well, I once saw Angela Lansbury in the grocery store.

We should point out that we’re not encouraging you to change the channel from CNN, but if you’re going to watch the Emmy Awards anyway, you might as well watch them with us.

And even if you’re not watching them, we think you’ll still enjoy the live blog. I’ll be with you from 8:00pm Eastern Time until the Emmys finish airing.

If you would like to participate in our Live Blog (and we hope you do) please follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Please keep your comments short
2) Don’t write in ALL CAPS (we don’t like screaming)
3) Use your real name

Please note that due to volume we may not be able to post all comments.

    I love everything about 30 Rock. I opened up a page of random 30 Rock quotes in class the other night and had to close it down because I almost started laughing out loud. Bummed about the Tina Fey loss, but she's a gracious winner and loser... not that I needed another reason to love her!

    unrelated sidebar: I miss your random blogs, Jack! I'll take it in large doses or small doses, but just know that they really help getting through the work day :)

    If there is an award for best TV cartoon character it would be a toss up between Speedy Gonzales or Ninja Joe.
