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.

Yay!!! Toni Colette fab as schizo Tara! This is great for a not so publicized show.
I've never heard Toni Collette speak in her natural voice- great accent!
Loved chenoweth's acceptance speech
Not sure I like Justin's glasses? Sarah Silverman's mustach?? Toni Collette's dress is absolutely gorgeous!!
what is the show Toni Colette won for?
Woo-woo JT in glasses...so cute!
Wow – lots of "sour" faces in the audience tonite (hmmmm....) – Murial WINS !!
Only Sara Silverman would wear a stach...with a straight face. I'm surprised Tina didn't get it.
Sarah Silverman can always make me laugh!!!
Did anyone even watch this show??? is it STILL on??
A night full of surprises....
Awww... never watched the show but heard it dealt with serious issues.
Yea to Justin for the shout out to Bea Arthur!
Poor Justin, never should have looked at Sarah!
Why is JT presenting in a comedy category? Odd...
Hmm...who's gonna win comedy actress?!?!
@ Diane, yes...."We're moving on up...." was a great theme – but for me, Mary Tyler Moore Show and the theme to Hawaii 5-0 was (and still are) my faves.
Justin T. finally shaved! And he also now looks about 18...
And now the portion of the evening where I silently resent Justin Timberlake and his abs.
What's up with the glasses JT?
LOL. The host lost. He's just cute. And JT too.
Kristen Wiig should have gotten the Emmy, she's brilliant on SNL!
My dad watched Two and a Half Men religiously.
Thaaaat's about it.
'Clara's Heart' movie with Woopie and Neil Patrick Harris goes back farther than Doggie Howser MD – @jack yeah Vinnie on Sopranos dont know about Wanda
Jack Gray...u mean Winnie?,
I think Wanda was in an episode of 'Law & Order:SVU' last season...or was it 'Cold Case'?
Stacy – I don't watch it. Then again, I only watch a handful of scripted shows.
John Cryer's outfit was stolen from the wardrobe of "Pretty in Pink"
Anybody watch Two and A Half Men? It seems like it's been on forever, but I don't know anyone who watches it.
My fave tv theme songs where The Jeffersons and All in the Family :D
yes, Kevin Dillon did NOT look happy, guess he thought it was his year!
So all this talk about Neil Patrick Harris. Does anyone remember Wanda from Doogie Howser, MD? Whatever happened to her? I think Vinnie was on The Sopranos for a while.
30 rock IS the funniest show on TV, hands down
DUCKIE WON! Jon Cryer will always be Duckie from "Pretty In Pink" to me...
tracey morgan is a hoot! he was robbed.
Is Two and a Half Men the new Everybody Loves Raymond? 6 yrs and running
Jon Cryer is excellent in his role! Happy for him -
Nothing better than Two and a Half Men to kill any bad day!
I love John Hodgman doing the voiceovers. And here's his commercial too!
This excuse of internet service crashed never convinced my boss!
YES!!!! I want Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory to win, however he's not on the isle, that's the kiss of death!
Aww, so happy for Jon Cryer. Been a fan ever since the Duckie days. Wow, I just aged myself.
Dallas vs. Giants.......sorry Emmy, gotta go with what's on now....hope Big Bang wins BIG!!! (John Madden @ game!!!)
Tracey Morgan was robbed!
Jon Cryer looks quite surprised and all of the other nominees are definitely shocked!
I'm with you on 30 Rock Jack. They just got robbed!
Good to see John Cryer finally get an award.
omg Ducky won!
Jon Crier is so funny
Another upset! Kevin D. didn't look happy....It truly is an honor to be nominated!
@jack: Thought you might be having problems. It always happens at the worst time. Fingers crossed.
I love Jon Cryer! So happy for him!!
