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.

    Only Sara Silverman would wear a stach...with a straight face. I'm surprised Tina didn't get it.

    @ 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.

  18. Jack Gray

    And now the portion of the evening where I silently resent Justin Timberlake and his abs.

  19. Beth from SC @bandcmd

  25. Renee

    I think Wanda was in an episode of 'Law & Order:SVU' last season...or was it 'Cold Case'?

    September 20, 2009 at 8:32 pm |
  26. Chris Sosa - Boston, MA

    Stacy – I don't watch it. Then again, I only watch a handful of scripted shows.

  31. Jack Gray

    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.
