Toby Keith is 'American Country Awards' Artist of the Decade (VIDEO)

Toby Keith, 'American Country Awards'It was a big night for Toby Keith at the 'American Country Awards' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX), as he took home honors not just for work he's done in the past year, but over the past decade. Co-hosts Trace Adkins and Kristin Chenoweth were on hand to bestow upon Keith the Artist of the Decade Award, but Keith's good buddy Stephen Colbert couldn't miss out on the opportunity, sending kudos from his desk at 'The Colbert Report.'

It was only the second year of the fan-voted country music competition, but the stars weren't shy at showing up to the sophomore event. Fan support certainly helped former 'American Idol' contestants from the first season to now.

Jennifer Lopez, '2011 American Music Awards'Fun was definitely on the menu for the '2011 American Music Awards' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC). The night was absolutely packed with memorable performances and surprise guest stars. Fighting Gravity went unannounced, but certainly helped make the debut of will.i.am's collaboration with Jennifer Lopez on 'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' one of the most memorable of the night.

Other surprise appearances included a couple of guests who crashed the party at the end of the night with LMFAO performing their two hits. First, Justin Bieber broke out his dance moves on 'Party Rock Anthem,' and then David Hasselhoff joined the boys and Quest Crew to shake his moneymaker on 'Sexy and I Know It.'

Shania Twain & Taylor Swift, 'CMT Music Awards 2011'Twenty years later, 'Thelma & Louise' still resonates in our popular culture. Taylor Swift was one year old when the movie first came out, but she still took to a fun revamp of it with gusto for the opening of the 'CMT Music Awards 2011' (Wed., 8PM ET on CMT).

Shania Twain played Louise to Swift's Thelma as the girls headed out on a cross-country crime spree so impressive Donald Trump wanted to harness their power to control the world.

The bit also featured some other fun guest appearances along the way, including Chord Overstreet and Kenny Rogers as a crusty old pervert.

by Rich Keller, posted Aug 30th 2010 4:10PM
Ratings for the 2010 Emmy awards remained steady against the 2009 ceremonies.After years of fluctuating ratings and formats, the Emmys seem to have righted themselves -- at least for the time being.

Broadcasting & Cable reports the Jimmy Fallon-hosted 2010 Emmy Awards, held steady with a 4.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic range. The ceremony, which was broadcast on NBC, was down just one-tenth of a point from the 2009 ceremony held on CBS. Total viewers of this year's telecast slightly edged out last year's with 13.50 million watchers versus 2009's total of 13.47 million.

Does anyone care about Miss Universe (or Miss America or Miss USA or ...)?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 24th 2009 1:29PM
Last night they crowned Miss Universe. [Insert excitement here.] Hey, I remember watching The Miss America Pageant with my mom and sister in the '70s when I was a kid, but in this day and age when there are so many "titles" and award shows, who cares? Even host Billy Bush announces it in the clip below as if he's a waiter reading the specials of the night (and who got these two hosts and thought they were special? Jeez.)

Also: how can this be Miss Universe? Were there any Klingons in it?

Tina Fey's Sarah Palin earns a big 'You betcha' from the Emmy people

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jul 17th 2009 2:03PM
Tina Fey as Sarah PalinTina Fey's surprise return to Saturday Night Live as Sarah Palin was one of the ten greatest TV moments of 2008 (and quite possibly the decade, the century, the millennium and the eon).

So it's no surprise that Fey's name and show 30 Rock came up so many times in the recent list of Emmy nods. I'm no longer convinced that she's a woman. I'm convinced she's an experimental humanoid prototype designed by studio executives solely to win awards like Tom Hanks (aka "Project Red Shoe").

It's also no surprise that one of the two acting nods she scored included her Palin performance on SNL.

The Shield gets the big ol' cold shoulder from the Emmy collective

Michael Chiklis and David Rees Snell from The Shield
Television is a vast alien landscape of shows, programs and other watchables. So the odds of a really good show not getting special recognition are about as good as Michael Chiklis' chances of his noggin being mistaken for a shiny, beige Brunswick in a bowling alley.

The Emmys also tend to favor younger shows rather than the oldies that have had their chance to win some awards because the best stuff on television is always fresher out of the gate. It's just the beast of the cycle. Great movies age like a fine cheese. Great TV shows age like spray cheese.

The Shield, however, got totally snubbed from this year's nomination list. And is that something the Academy really wants to do to a guy with a hair trigger anger who considers a Smith and Wesson as his "backup piece"? (I should ask myself the same thing after that bowling ball noggin joke.)

The power of the NFL forces the Emmys to move to September 13

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 2nd 2009 2:04PM
The Emmy AwardsOh my god, now I'm going to have to rearrange my entire schedule. I wanted to make sure and tell you all as soon as possible so you could do the same. Because of a football double-header on Sunday, September 20, CBS is bumping the Emmy's up a week to September 13. I know, madness! I wrote it on my calendar in permanent ink! But I guess in the NFL's world, you shouldn't think of anything as permanent. Look at what they do to the prime-time schedule already.

Hell, the fall edition of The Amazing Race traditionally runs 20 to 40 minutes late every week because of football. There's no DVR adjustments possible for this. They really should schedule a flexible news program in 60 Minutes slot that can be truncated as needed so the rest of the lineup can start on time. And now, out of fear that football will run long, they're bumping the entire Emmy ceremony with only three month's notice. Celebrity desingers are panicking as we speak, and those poor accountants are going to have to count a week faster. It's absolute chaos!

Golden Globes date set early

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 24th 2008 10:09AM
Golden GlobesThe Golden Globes will be returning in 2009, on January 11th to be precise. This was announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association this past Tuesday. Nominees will be announced on December 11, 2008. It will be broadcast by NBC from the Beverly Hilton.

The awards show used to be shown in late January, but after the rescheduling of the Academy Awards in 2004, the date was bumped up to compensate. The Golden Globes are not expect to affect the Academy Awards outcome since the judges for the Oscars are to have mailed in their ballots by the time the Golden Globes are broadcast.

Having adopted a "magazine" format to the 2008 show due to the WGA Strike, the show suffered a serious drop in ratings. They couldn't even have a red carpet event before the show to put the celebrities on display. Most likely, the 2009 broadcast will return to the traditional format and a bump in the ratings.

No live broadcast for the 34th People's Choice Awards

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 21st 2007 9:23AM

People's Choice AwardIn a somewhat unprecedented move, Reuters details a shift in format for the People's Choice Awards. The January 8th broadcast was to be the typical awards show fare, people make bad jokes, struggle to read teleprompters with bad jokes written on them, accept awards by making bad jokes all interspersed with snippets of bad jokes from a host.

This year, in response to the ongoing writers strike, Queen Latifah will be "hosting" a magazine-style show (think Entertainment Tonight). She will introduce pre-recorded segments and clips from nominees to be followed by pre-recorded "I'd like to thank my mom"s from the winners. With waivers being denied to awards shows and celebrities admitting reluctance to attend awards show in the wake of the strike, this move makes sense though I'm not sure it will make for good television. I think the excitement of seeing celebrities live and interacting is the appeal of an awards show and this will just feel like a long episode of one of those celebrity newsmagazine shows like ET.

The Kennedy Center Honors filmed for CBS

Jessica Simpson Kennedy Center HonorsThe Kennedy Center Honors were taped this past weekend in Washington DC for a December 26th broadcast on CBS. This year's honorees include Andrew Lloyd Webber, Zubin Mehta, Dolly Parton, Smokey Robinson and Steven Spielberg. The moment making the internet and gossip blog rounds right now features Jessica Simpson flubbing the lines to Dolly's "9 to 5." You won't see that in the broadcast. In fact, what you see in the broadcast is an extremely pared down version of the live awards show.

The UK's National TV Awards are handed out

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 1st 2006 1:36PM
Kelly Osbourne, Sir Trevor McDonald, and Jack OsbourneLast night at Royal Albert Hall in London, the National TV Awards, in which British viewers voted for their favorites in various categories, were handed out. Doctor Who won a bunch of awards: David Tennant won Most Popular Actor, Billie Piper won Most Popular Actress, and the show won Most Popular Drama; the show swept the three awards last year, as well (Christopher Eccleston won the actor award in 2005, of course). Little Britain won Most Popular Comedy -- one of the nominees was Will & Grace! -- and The X Factor won the Most Popular Entertainment show.

The entire list of winners and nominees are here, provided by Digital Spy. It's interesting how the mix of nominees combines both British and American shows, but the winners are all from British shows. And yes, that picture above is of Kelly and Jack Osbourne, who hosted the show with Sir Trevor McDonald. Kelly must have followed her brother's lead and dropped a bunch of weight. They look almost as distinguished as Sir Trevor in that picture.

Should Isaac Mizrahi work Oscars red carpet?

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 22nd 2006 11:18AM
Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi sparked a lot of discussion following his behavior on the red carpet last week while co-hosting the Golden Globes arrival show for E! Some outrageous moments include grabbing Scarlett Johansson's breast, looking down Teri Hatcher's dress, questioning Eva Longoria about her pubic hair, and referring to Charlize Theron's character in Monster as a "scary dyke with bad teeth." Yes, he was totally sexually harassing these women. Although none of those actresses have filed any complaints about their treatment, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is skeptical about whether Mizrahi should be working the red carpet during the Oscars. A spokesman for the Academy said they expect that Mizrahi won't behave like that on their red carpet and, if he does, "I cannot predict what we would do afterwards."

Did anyone watch the E! preshow? Was it offensive? I didn't see it, but this totally makes me want to watch the Oscars preshow in March. I'm hoping he takes Russell Crowe down a notch or two.
