Live-Blogging the Emmys...

It's been a while since we sat on the couch together and held a virtual viewing party, right? But it's the the night-- well, the afternoon anyway-- of the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards and after my first full year of doing the entertainment blogging/reporting thing as my "day job," I am still finding myself able to sit at home, in my finest PJs, with a pizza and some cupcakes and make snarky commentary. Follow along right here or on Twitter for all of my thoughts as the event unfolds. And of course, the complete list of winners will follow...



- Emmy Sunday! I am in my finest PJs, ready to live-blog the red carpet, ceremony, winners & losers. Who I want to win: click here.


- Madison is too shaggy to go to the show :( RT : Ready for the Emmys! Mama in her fave pjs; me in my fave tie: http://twitpic.com/6n01d4

- Red carpet is kicking off now. Who do you think will be the first celeb to be photographed?

- (Maria Menuonos, photographed like 2 hours ago, does not count).

- Answer? Turns out it was Kyle Richards from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I'm not sure she should count either...


- Going to flip between E! & KTLA's red carpet shows. Basically I start on E! until Giuliana asks a question I deem too dumb to excuse.

- Dear -- You are currently mislabeling some of the stars on your 63rd Annual shots. I'm available for fact-checking.

- "If I was standing next to him right now, I'd be his arm candy," - Nina Dobrev on why she didn't walk the carpet with Ian Somerhalder

- STOP TRYING TO MAKE THE GLAM CAM 360 HAPPEN!!

- I am working on a red carpet gallery. As the stars walk, I update. Link here (winners will be posted here, too).

- "I know no more than you do" - Lea Michele on her future. And I believe her b/c Ryan does whatever he wants on a dime.

- Glad Taraji P Henson (who is singing tonight!) is nominated now b/c her role seems too small to be recognized next year :(

- Sarah Hyland's one of a kind Christian Siriano gown is really, really pretty. She looks like a mini Nina Dobrev!!

- Also, in this / thing from Fashion Police? Totally all the way. Lea's posing *is* ridic!

- Jane Lynch is going to have four costume changes. If one of them is a bedazzled track suit I may have to quit the .

- "Should I punch them in the face?" Aubrey Plaza knows how to welcome the next interviewee to the riser.

- Nigel Lythgoe is hovering over Paula Abdul's interview like a good AA sponsor...

- I am not okay with the cast of being presenters while so many other (better) new shows go unmentioned...

- Ross Matthews just said Lea Michele's dress is "causing a lot of glee." And he emphasized the word like he thought it was clever. Ugh

- Michelle Forbes was just asked if she enjoys doing really heavy dramas. No. And that's why she's on . Ugh x2.

- Oh. My. God. Best dressed tonight? !! I love the bowtie and the pocket square and the glasses and...he's just ahmahazing

- ., I love you, but you kind of look like a waiter tonight. I hope it's a bit you're doing.

- All right, Rachael Taylor just won me over by implying Ryan looks terrible on TV.

- . asks Ryan if he's still "banging the dancer," and he can't fathom who she's thinking of. Guess he never sees *his* beard...

- (Tonight I must point out that all Tweets are my own opinions and do not necessarily reflect those of the sites that employ me)

- Okay I've been updating the red carpet photo gallery. It appears all I've missed are guys in the same monkey suits...

- Every time I see Josh Charles, I hope he'll pop on a fancy wedge cap. For nostalgic purposes.

- Evan Rachel Wood is the Kristen Stewart of the . Discuss...

- Oh David Boreanaz, what is happening with your hair? It's the , not fourth grade class photo day.


- My fear is Jon Cryer might get the the Emmy just as a "thank you for not falling down the rabbit hole too" reward. Not okay with that

- Oh Julie Bowen...we have pizza and red velvet cake mix at my place. Please stop by and have some. Or all of it.

- Yes, Ryan, why *hasn't* the TV Academy recognized ?

- Betty White has pulled old clothes from her closet for the "put together" she is currently wearing. She schools us all.

- Oh, no, Gwyneth. No...

- Gwyneth says her time on was "as fun as it looked." Well, it didn't look fun to me so...

- Rob Lowe's sons have gotten so big. I feel so old.

- Did you start that rumor?" Heidi Klum calls out Seacrest regarding her leaving . Touche, Heidi.

- No offense, Seal, but this is the , not the Grammys, so we don't really care about your new album.

- Am I the only one bummed Archie Panjabi isn't wearing "kicky" boots today?

- I *love* the color of Dianna Agron's dress. But the actual style? Not really for me.

- But the real winner for me? Claire Danes!

- Okay I have to shotgun a slice of pizza before the actual ceremony starts... Ah, the glamorous life...

- We're live, folks! And we're starting with the soon-to-be ahmahzing number the Emmingtons!!!

- Aaand Ryan Murphy is now going to have Sue start her own glee club, realizing Jane actually can sing.

- RON EFFING SWANSON!! already made.

- This glee club for the should be the new glee Cobie Smulders, Taraji Henson, Wilmer Valderrama

- This montage is made of so much win: , Ron Swanson's drunk dance, paintball, "Shut your ass," all things ...

- Starting with comedy. Basically the plays to my attention span...

- One pick down, you guys. I have wanted Julie Bowen to win an ever since .

- Ed O'Neill was robbed. For, like, the 88th time.

- Ricky Gervais via satellite at the better be as funny as Ricky Gervais via satellite at the TCAs and not like Simon Cowell at TCAs...

-
is already sweeping. A win for directing, but not for EP Steve Levitan, unfortunately.

- Michael Spiller, nice subtle show joke there. "Gotta fix that step. I was going to have Ty do it but he's not here."

- Will Arnett doesn't look like he gets Zooey's schtick. At least their shows aren't on opposite each other.

- If we're being honest, 's second season was a bit hit or miss as a whole. But these episodes *were* phenomenal.

- Is Conan asleep behind ? Or am I seeing things?

- THIS. RT : Emmy director, if you don't cut to Chuck Lorre while Charlie Sheen is on stage, you're not doing your job.

- I hope Ashton's character needs therapy, too. Jane Lynch is awesome as a head shrinker.

- Do NOT make this the Charlie Sheen show. I'd rather he slashes Cryer's tires in the parking lot.

- Continue making great TV, Charlie? Or start?

- I love that Johnny Galecki appears to be dating Kelli Garner.

- I also love that another one of my picks took home the tonight! Congrats, Jim Parsons!

- YES! You go, Amy! You won the Emmy in my mind, too!

- Oh, they're all doing it. Okay... Six way tie for fabulous females in comedy?

- First time I saw Edie all night. Sorry, but just no on that dress.

- I like Laura Linney's sweater.

- Whoa. Melissa McCarthy is a true example of making the most that you can out of...um, less than stellar writing.

- So, I'm pretty sure the just gave its first ever award for a film. And on that note, is on DVD on Tuesday!

- Kim Kardashian in an Emmys sketch is the Emmys jumping the shark.

- Reality/variety categories all lumped together? This rules on so many levels!!

- So next year reality and variety can just be one giant category, right? That's the direction in which we're headed.

- It never fails to piss me the hell off at how many writers late night has. And yet, I still never find myself laughing...

- So I'm giving the Emmy to the one with the puppies (Jimmy Fallon)

- "No more!" has given up already... http://yfrog.com/h7b4qqnj

- Where is ? His red carpet look fits right in with The Lonely Island.

- Lookit! Maya Rudolph is on TV at a time she's not pregnant!

- Wow, Akon needs an autotune mic. *I* had a better shot at hitting the right notes better.

- So next year is getting his own medley time, right? FTW

- Scott Caan and Anna Paquin. Two people who could not be more over the on stage together. Seems about right.

- What just happened? The CW is being acknowledged all up and down this telecast. Well, is anyway...

- No ? Or did I miss it? Because sure snuck in there...

- CLEAR EYES. FULL HEARTS. CAN'T LOSE. RIGHT, ???

- Ah, there it is, that beautiful, beautiful music... At the !

- Margo Martindale better cherish this Emmy. Because her role in is so thankless.

- Pub shout out from Margo! Congrats Roslyn !

- OMG me, too!! RT : Margo Martindale will always be Camilla to me :) Happy to see her win!

- If you know what's good for you RT If you're a TV-only director nominated against Martin Scorsese, you accept you're fucked, right?

- Hey Uncle Marty, if you need another daughter, I could use a job on the show, too...

- This skeleton formerly known as Kerry Washington is judging me through the TV as I consider a third slice of pizza...

-
Damn, I was hoping Alan Cumming would win so he could perform the dance on the way up to the stage...

- If & when I win an Emmy, I am thanking my dog. Not my dog sitter but my dog. Missed opportunity, Peter Dinklage. No one's more loyal.

- . using Cheeto dust as blush? *That's* Jersey. And maybe some people I know here in LA.

- It's time for Katie Holmes to talk out of the side of her mouth now.

- Forced female unity time! When met

- Okay but it's a little unfair that only one Coach would win. was about the Taylors. Plural.

- Kyle Chandler just had a little rock star moment after he finished speaking. So incredibly happy he took home *this* title!

- Cobie Smulders' face, you guys!

- Taylor Forever. RT : Texas Forever Indeed.

- You GO, ! "A lot of people are curious as to why I'm a lesbian. Ladies and gentlemen, the cast of ." adlib?

- No matter what comes out of Kevin Dillon's mouth, it has the same angry birds affect. Doesn't bode well for his new comedy.

- No, Kevin Connolly, you do not accept Maggie Smith's on her behalf. You, nor anyone from is worthy!

- Amy and Melissa and a microphone. Better than 100% of all of the new comedies coming this fall.

- The eyecandy must win this category. It's been a while since Coach was on stage.

- Oh. Well. He's good, too.

- So...the Emmytones were only good for farce? Because these fedoras are pretty laughable. During an In Memoriam.

- I hate to say it, but I watch the In Memoriam to see who the Academy forgot. There's always one...or three.

- So Mark Burnett is basically full of sh*t, right? Because I remember him saying at TCA he was going to make "In Memoriam" less of a bummer but

- That was the saddest sounding singing group ever.

- I'm playing 5000 Candles right now (why wasn't *that* the In Memoriam song??) RT : No Lil Sebastian? wtf

- It's chocolate pop rocks time. You know, to get the sound of those Canadian Tenors (really?) out of my head.

- Which is better: 's Emmy or her pie?

- again? I'm so over you, !

- And now Gwyneth is coming to the stage to present comedy series? Way to kick me when I'm down, #Emmys.

- THIS. RT : A Parks and Rec win would reverse the sadness I feel over this FNL loss.

-
two for two in Comedy Series. And you know, all the comedy awards in general this year.

- On time, mostly on the money when it came to winners... the 2011 will be explored further in a vodcast from me and
