Emmys to Split Into Two Ceremonies?

Emmy AwardsAre more Emmy Award changes afoot?

If the TV networks get their way, the Emmys as we know them could completely disappear. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the major TV networks have approached the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with a proposal to split the Emmys into two separate ceremonies. At the very least, they'd like to increase the number of networks that take turns broadcasting the show to include cable and pay channels.

Don Johnson Is Mad at the Emmy Awards - and So Is Jay Leno (VIDEO)

Don Johnson Is Mad at the Emmy Awards - and So Is Jay LenoWell, the 2010 Emmy Awards were held last night. That's all very well and good for the people who won. But what about the losers? What about the stars who never win, or who fail over and over again? On 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), we get to meet two such Emmy losers: Don Johnson and Jay Leno.

While talking to Leno, Johnson recounts his one and only shot at Emmy-related glory. In 1985, he was nominated as Best Actor in a Drama for his work on 'Miami Vice.' And he didn't win. It's been 25 years since then, but Don still seems a little irritated. He calls the whole Emmy experience "painful" and "excruciating," while Jay laughs and claps his hands. "I was pissed!" Johnson says.

Emmy Ratings 2010 Hold Steady From Last Year's Ceremony

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.

Kate Gosselin Emmys Update: Now She Wants to Act?!

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 30th 2010 2:32PM
Kate GosselinKate Gosselin wants to try her hand at acting, and it's all Jimmy Fallon's fault.

When the Emmys host asked Gosselin to participate in last night's 'Glee'-themed opening skit, he inadvertently planted an idea in the reality star's head that could scar movie-going and TV-viewing audiences for generations to come. "Doing that little part in the skit was so amazing for me, being around so many wonderful actors," she told Entertainment Weekly. "I so want to give it a try! I think it is so fun to be somebody else, to get out of me and be somebody else."

It's unclear whether Gosselin's appearance in the Emmys number was a result of a previously unseen sense of humor or just because she is physically unable to resist appearing in front of any type of camera. Either way, it was a cute wink to her wooden but inexplicably lengthy 'Dancing With the Stars' stint, one of the year's most memorable TV trainwreck moments. But that doesn't mean we want to see any more of her.

While there were no terrible gaffes at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards -- and the ceremony didn't run overtime like some other award shows (ahem, Oscars) -- there were plenty of unplanned, nail-bitingly awkward moments during the ceremony.

Come on, it's live TV. You didn't think it would go off without a single hitch, did you?

Here's a roundup of the night's most cringeworthy moments.

Edie Falco Takes Home Her Fourth Emmy

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 29th 2010 10:43PM
Getty ImagesProving that she's a master at both comedy and drama, 'Nurse Jackie' Edie Falco took home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy statuette at the 2010 Emmy Awards.

This is Falco's fourth Emmy. She previously won three Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series awards for her run on 'The Sopranos.' With her comedy prize, she becomes the third person ever (after Carroll O'Connor and Robert Young) -- and the first woman -- to win both comedy and drama awards.

'Nurse Jackie' was picked up for a third season in March and just finished airing its second season, but Falco's award was for the first season, which aired too late last summer to be eligible for the 2009 Emmys.

Fellow Showtime actress Toni Collette won in the same category last year for 'The United States of Tara.'

Jimmy Fallon's 'Mad Men' Videos Pulled Until Emmy Voting Finishes

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 13th 2010 10:20AM
NBC pulls 'Mad Men'-inspired Emmy promo spotsIs Jimmy Fallon the next Don Draper? We'll have to wait until after Aug. 17 to find out. That's the day when Emmy voting closes, and, according to the Hollywood Reporter, when it will be safe for NBC to air its 'Mad Men'-style Emmy promo starring Emmy host Fallon as Draper and Christina Hendricks as Joan Harris.

You may have seen the first of NBC's three 'Mad Men' spoofs promoting its Emmy broadcast if you were watching the network Wednesday night. But AMC's 'Mad Men' is up for 17 Emmys, and NBC has no plans to produce spots that spoof the other shows in the best drama series category. Since voting is still open, some see the 'Mad Men' promo as giving the show an unfair edge.

Emmys to Drop Theme Song Category

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 20th 2010 10:19AM
EmmyWe've all gotten used to modern TV shows either not having a theme song at all or having just a few seconds of one. Now it looks like the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has gotten used to it, too -- so much, in fact, that its not even going to honor them anymore.

In one of several changes to next year's award show, the Academy has gotten rid of the award for Best Main Title Theme, due to the "decreasing number of traditional television main title theme music."

'Modern Family' Plots its Emmy Strategy

by Allyssa Lee, posted Apr 7th 2010 3:45PM
It's a challenge faced by really strong ensemble casts everywhere: Determining who gets put into lead categories, and who gets put into supporting come Emmy-submission time.

Certainly, it's a dilemma faced by ABC's 'Modern Family,' as the critically acclaimed freshman comedy boasts a clan's worth of award-worthy performers. According to the Hollywood Reporter, there are four different divide-and-conquer Emmy strategies being considered within the 'Family' camp: 1.) Submitting all six of the adult regular cast members (Ed O'Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet) in the lead category; 2.) putting them all in the supporting category; 3.) designating 'Family' patriarch O'Neill in the lead category and the rest in supporting, or 4.) submitting the "traditional" parents Bowen and Burrell in the lead categories, and the rest in supporting. (Guess this means there's no room at the awards show inn for Rico Rodriguez, who is hilariously on-point as man-child Manny.)

Should 'Mad Men' Really Chase After More Emmy Noms?

Yesterday, Brad told you about how the 'Mad Men' powers that be are figuring out how to improve their chances at the Emmys. It was strange to think that a show as successful as 'Mad Men' was angling for a way to get more awards, but there is a reasoning behind the strategy. You see, even though 'Mad Men' has consistently been honored for the show and the writing and direction, the actors -- Jon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, Christina Hendricks, etc. -- have been shut out. That's irksome. Not one Emmy for acting. Plenty of nominations, but no wins.

NBC Confirms the Emmys Will Be Live On The West Coast

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 5th 2010 2:02PM
EmmysJoel reported a month ago that NBC had been thinking about dumping the West Coast tape delay for the Emmys and actually airing them live for people on the left side of the country too. Now NBC confirms that they will indeed show the awards show live on the West Coast too.

This will be the first time since 1976 that the Emmys will be seen live on the West Coast. In this day of the web and Twitter and time-shifted TV viewing, it makes sense that the network would make this decision. I'm sure people on the other side of the country can get used to the fact that the Emmys will now start at 5pm instead of 8pm (though I could never get used to living on the West Coast schedule - I'd feel so behind all the time).

The Emmy Awards airs on August 29. We'll have complete coverage here all night, of course.
