Gladys Knight, '2011 Soul Train Awards'Gladys Knight -- a.k.a. The Empress of Soul -- was rightly honored at this year's '2011 Soul Train Awards' (Sun., 9PM ET on BET). To a standing ovation from the audience, singer Natalie Cole presented her with the Legend Award.

Veteran recording artists Elton John, Smokey Robinson and Patti LaBelle paid tribute on video, with John saying that in 40 years of listening to Gladys performing live he's never heard her hit a bum note. Then more performers took to the stage for a truly epic medley of her greatest hits.

Accepting her award Gladys said "I have received awards over the years and I am grateful for every single one of them. But let me tell you something,. This one right here is the closest to my heart because it comes from my people. ... You're telling the world that I passed this way and I did something that was alright."

Ricky Gervais Justifies His Decision to Return as Golden Globes Host

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 18th 2011 11:30AM
Ricky GervaisDespite the ribald Comedy Central roasts and numerous Seth MacFarlane cameos, many of Hollywood's elite actually find it a little difficult to laugh at themselves, and they seem to be especially sensitive at awards shows. (Maybe it's the open bar.)

Earlier this year, Ricky Gervais hit headlines on both sides of the pond for the risqué one-liners he unleashed while hosting the Golden Globes, offending numerous celebrities and leading many to opine that he would never be invited back. Yesterday, the comedian proved them wrong when it was announced that he would be returning to host next January.

Gervais then took to his blog to explain why he accepted the job "for a third and definitely final time" -- unsurprisingly, he revealed that it was mostly to prove a point.

'Daytime Emmys': Ben Bailey in Bathroom When He Wins, List of Winners (VIDEO)

Ben Bailey, 'The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards'Ah, the human body. It can be so damned inconvenient at times. Like when you're name is being announced as a winner at 'The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS).

That's what happened to Ben Bailey when he was temporarily missing in action after he and 'Cash Cab' took home the Emmy for Outstanding Game Show Host.

It was Bailey's second win in a row, but the first that he almost missed entirely. He could have played it off completely if he'd wanted to as he had a great line ready when he finally did make it to the podium.

"Thank you very much," he said taking the Emmy. "Well everybody, I couldn't get a cab. What can I say?"

Lady Gaga Dons Blue Merkin at 'MuchMusic Video Awards,' List of Winners (VIDEO)

Lady GaGa, '2011 MuchMusic Video Awards'So ... there's that. Lady Gaga took another approach to visualizing the message of her hit single 'Born This Way' on 'The 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards' (Sun., 9PM ET on Fuse). This time around, she seemed to focus on the natural beauty of body hair.

Her female dancers appeared to have unshaven armpits, and Gaga herself took it a step further. Let's just say the carpet matched the drapes, and in this case the drapes were a bright blue.

We're not talking about a wardrobe malfunction either, as the blue hair adorning her crotch and armpits was clearly not real.

Justin Bieber Invades Country Music, Wins at 'CMT Music Awards 2011' (VIDEO)

Justin Bieber & Rascal Flatts, 'CMT Music Awards 2011'Even when Justin Bieber isn't quite sure where he's at, people still love him and want to give him awards. Take the 'CMT Music Awards 2011' (Wed., 8PM ET on CMT) for instance. They awarded Bieber Collaborative Video of the Year for his song 'That Should Be Me,' featuring Rascal Flatts.

Only Bieber said, "I just want to say how honored I am to be here at the Country Music Awards with Rascal Flatts." See, that's an entirely different awards show.

But Bieber is new to the country music scene, so we'll let it slide. He was otherwise very gracious in accepting the award, though he neglected to give us a hint as to where he's headed for his next award. It can be like a game of 'Where's Waldo?' at all the awards show. See if you can spot Bieber, and then see if he knows which awards show he's winning at.

'Downton Abbey' Loses Out as 'Sherlock' Wins Big at the BAFTAs

by Catherine Lawson, posted May 23rd 2011 6:12AM
Martin FreemanIt was a mixed bag for PBS last night at the BAFTA TV Awards in London as 'Sherlock' took home two trophies, but 'Downton Abbey' left empty-handed.

'Sherlock' won the coveted Best Drama Series Award, and Martin Freeman ('The Hobbit') won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Doctor Watson in the modern take on the 'Sherlock Holmes' mysteries.

However, Freeman's co-star Benedict Cumberbatch lost out in the Best Actor category to Daniel Rigby ('Flyboys') for his role as legendary British comedian Eric Morecambe in 'Eric & Ernie.' Rigby also beat out fan favorite, 'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith.

'Downton Abbey' was nominated for three major awards -- Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor and The Audience Award -- but failed to win any of them.

TV Stars Contending for Grammys

by Jane Murphy, posted Feb 13th 2011 11:00AM
The Grammys hand out its awards tonight at 8PM ET on CBS, and if you scanned the humongous nomination list (109 categories, hello!), you found a lot of TV favorites there.

Some of them are in niche categories that will probably not be featured on tonight's broadcast. But we expect to see at least a few of the following stars in their Staples Center seats, if not bringing it on stage

"Dancing with the Stars' is surprisingly well-represented on the Grammy list. Season 2 contestant Tia Carrere -- also known as Cha Cha on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' -- contends in Best Hawaiian Music Album for her CD 'Huana Ke Aloha.' And last season's 'DWTS' resident comic hoofer Margaret Cho (photo) is represented in the Best Comedy Album category for 'Cho Dependent'.

'Golden Globes' Provide a Some Fun Moments in a Long Night of Jokes and Jibes

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jan 16th 2011 11:58PM
Ricky GervaisBefore we get to the dishing and rehashing, go ahead, make fun of the Golden Globes. Everybody does.

The show's host this year, Ricky Gervais, certainly had a gleeful time poking fun at the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Globes. The HFPA members didn't just nominate 'The Tourist' because they wanted to hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, Gervais said at the start of the ceremony, "they also accepted bribes," Gervais joked. (I think that was a joke. Maybe.)

Even one of the evening's winners, Robert DeNiro, mocked the HFPA in a halting acceptance speech that contained less wit than he thought it did.

"The important thing is that we are all in this together -- the filmmakers who make the movies and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association members who in turn pose for pictures with the movie stars," said DeNiro, who won a Cecil B. DeMille award for career achievement. "I'm sorry more members of the Hollywood Foreign Press aren't with us tonight but many of them were deported right before the show."

Zing! Not really!

The pop cultural juggernaut that is 'Glee' continued its quest for world domination, picking up three awards at Sunday night's 68th Annual Golden Globes -- for Best Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actress (Jane Lynch) and Best Supporting Actor (Chris Colfer).

After creator Ryan Murphy thanked various Fox executives, 'Glee' writer Ian Brennan added, "Thank you to public schoolteachers. You don't get paid like it, but you're doing the most important work in America."

Golden Globes TV Predictions: Who Will Win vs. Who Should Win

Golden GlobeBy Maureen Ryan and Joel Keller

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards are this Sunday, and, while much of the buzz is going to be on the movie side of the ledger, the night's television awards are always fun to watch. For one thing, they're unpredictable, and not a harbinger of who will or won't win Emmys. Steve Carell, for instance, hasn't won an Emmy for 'The Office' yet, but got a Globe the first time he was nominated.

But the second reason is that it's a good way for TV fans to stop and take a break from the winter weekend doldrums and pay tribute to the year on the tube that just passed. It's not as "important" as the Emmys, but it's at least as much fun.

To that end, TV Squad critics Maureen Ryan and Joel Keller have decided to face off and give their picks for each of the television categories. In each, they'll pick who in their heart of hearts they think should take the Globe home, but they'll also pick who is most likely to take it home. After all, the Globes are the Globes, where logic and common sense sometimes take a holiday.

How The Daytime Emmys Will Survive

by Michael Maloney, posted Jun 26th 2010 2:00PM
Emmy AwardLike most awards shows, the Daytime Emmy Awards have suffered from low ratings over the last several years.

Fortunately, it's harder to hit a moving target and the kudofest honoring the best in soaps, game shows, talk shows and other programs has stayed on the go.

After decades of being broadcast from New York, the awards show moved to Hollywood in 2006, hoping to spark new interest among viewers. This year, it's changed locales again.

The 37th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards is going to be held in Las Vegas and broadcast live on Sun. June 27 at 9PM on CBS, complete with musical acts including a performance by the Vegas-based company of 'The Lion King.'
