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.

    @Jack: That time that Luke Perry furrowed his brow. Oh wait, that was every moment.

    Just a heads up, since I've been wanting to see this thanks to JackGray's mention: Grey Gardens is on HBO Wednesday morning. Good bless the DVR. 🙂

    The Emmys are putting me to sleep. Let's talk about our favorite 90210 moments instead. I'd have to say Donna Martin Graduates or the time Kelly got roped into that cult.

  16. Stacy (@newsjunkie365)

    @Jack: Oh c'mon. You know you loved Party of Five.

    This show's just too classy for my taste. I'm with Stacy. What good's an awards show without some crazy? 🙂

  18. Donia

    That makes me nervous though I don't have any cats yet... will watch Greys Gardens just in case... Did you love Blake's dress?...WOW..

    Jeff Probst suited up without tie or bowtie broke the penguin rule so elegantly. By contrast, Chevy Chase in white T-shirt n Armani looked a little like the Michelin Man ready to sell you a spare tire.

  26. Stacy (@newsjunkie365)

    I'm a little disappointed in the relatively low level of crazy thus far. Don't they serve alcohol at this thing?

    September 20, 2009 at 9:24 pm |

  37. Kimberley

    Yes, some Lady Gaga – but I preferred her Kermit cape.

    September 20, 2009 at 9:22 pm |
  38. Diane N.

    I feel your pain Jack, dogs really should know how to make the mac and cheese, it should come naturally. I have the same problem with my bird and turning off the lights once I get into the bed. Reading the written word (Kevin) Bacon really makes me hungry for bacon dang! @ Stacey I swear it's on the tip of my tongue lol

    White Shadow was the basketball show Ken Howard did.

    September 20, 2009 at 9:20 pm |
  43. Jack Gray

    This show is in need of some Lady Gaga and her bird's nest dress.

    @Gina: Haha. The Fairness Doctrine DOES live.

    Taylor Swifts mom put the Kanye thing in it's proper place. It's not the end of the world or worse the loss of a child. She'll be okay!!!

    @joanne M – if I'm not mistaken, I think it was The White Shadow.

  47. Kimberley

    @Jack

    No, you're still good. Go make some food. I'm worried about what Sammy might put in it while you are otherwise occupied.

    September 20, 2009 at 9:18 pm |
  48. gill - north of 49

    @jack – oh, Sammy understands just fine... it's her way of telling you to take a hike – or better still, "go make me a doggie snack" !!

    September 20, 2009 at 9:17 pm |
  49. Diana

    Kevin and Kyra are a beautiful couple!
