Emmys 2011: We're Live-Blogging 'Em!

Get More: Awards, Emmys

Welcome to TVLine’s 2011 Emmys Live Blog — where we’ll cheer wildly with you when Vanessa Williams finally wins her Supporting Actress in a Comedy statuette for Ugly Betty (whoops! wrong year!) and gently dry your tears if Steve Carell ends the evening without a single Lead Actor in a Comedy trophy for his entire run on The Office (compared to Tony Shalhoub’s three for Monk).

In the midst of keeping one eye on the telecast (hosted by Glee‘s Jane Lynch) and one on my computer (to ensure I don’t commit any spelling offenses against the sensational J-u-li-a-n-n-a M-a-r-g-u-l-i-e-s), I’ll try to pull some of your best comments into our live stream. Just don’t take offense if your witty asides and bon mots don’t make the cut; I’m not a character on Alphas, just a mere mortal with speed-reading limitations. And with those housekeeping notes out of the way, let’s all dive into the CoverItLive module below, and at 8/7c, we’ll let the live-blogging commence!

  • Officially the most boring Emmy’s ever. Though I am curious to see how they are going to give Modern Family all the Drama awards as well.

    • Maybe the Emmy’s could hire the “Modern Family” writers next year. This show is a dud!

    • Weird sound! It was throughout the whole show, except when they went to commercial. It must have driven the audio crew, Director and Producers nuts!! How could a show of this stature not find this problem in less then ten minutes. Really surprising the Press hasn’t written about this or investigated it.

      With that said, the whole show had strange vibe. Awful writing… Those jokes by the announcer were lame at best. The harmonic quintet was out of Lawrence Welk. The show was jinxed from the fade up…

  • Worst. Pre-show. Ever.

  • Either something’s broken or someone doesn’t like me. I’ll be quiet now.

  • WORST SHOW EVER!!!! Who is writting these introductions made by the announcer? Terrible opening and Terrible host. Have a comedian as the host who can tell jokes that are funny. At the end of her jokes -nothing!!! Anything on TV is better than this!!!

  • I’m soooo glad Kyle Chandler won for FNL!!!! I just wish Connie Britton and the show had won! It was such a wonderful show! I will really miss it.

    • She didn’t unfortunately — that went to Jeff Probst. That category was announced during the Creative Arts Emmys last week.

      • Unfortunate is putting it mildly. She’s a terrific gal/host!

  • The sound was awful. Kept hearing that ringing noise too. Show was boring. The variety host award should be given out during the show. The presenters joke attempts were painful.

  • Irrégulières! Il a été pendant toute la preuve, à part quand ils dirigés vers des entreprises. Il devrait avoir conduit le slot machine Avez-un comédien que l’hôte qui peut raconter des blagues qui sont drôles. A la fin de ses blagues
