Tonight on TVLine: Live Emmys Commentary, Red Carpet Scoop and Backstage Buzz!

The Primetime Emmy Awards are airing this Sunday night on Fox, starting at 8/7c, and you are by all means welcome to watch the show by your lonesome, “unplugged” as it were. Or… or you can take it all in with the TVLine team at your side, and get what scientists estimate to be about 75 percent more enjoyment out of TV’s biggest night.

Here is what we have planned:

* TVLine founder and Editor-in-Chief Michael Ausiello is working the red carpet, gathering scoop about your favorite shows and shooting videos of your favorite stars. As if you aren’t already, you’d be well-advised to Follow him on Twitter for live updates as he chats up TV’s finest.

* Come showtime, Senior Editor Michael Slezak will be live-blogging the Emmycast using a shiny new gizmo where you can jump right in and commentate along with him. (Warning: He’s an impossible act to follow, but sure, go ahead and give it the ol’ college try.)

* Backstage, we’ve got West Coast Editor Meg Masters and West Coast reporter Vlada Gelman staking out the press room where the winners react to, well, winning. But if tradition tells us anything, you can always count on some newsy scoop and outrageous sound bites to trickle out as well, and we’ll be keeping tabs on the best buzz. (Click on their names above to Follow either on Twitter.)

* Last but not least, Editor-at-Large Matt Mitovich will be busy watching an Auction Hunters marathon on Spike… and/or posting a running tally of all the night’s Emmy winners, probably chiming in on Slezak’s live blog, and chain-drinking sugar-free Red Bull.

    I want Chris Colfer to win. That’s my #1 wish for tonight.

  3. Claire says:

    It’s broadcasted on a cable channel that I don’t have here in France so no. Sadly. But I’ll watch the red carpet live on facebook. Small consolation :)

  4. Jane says:

    Chris Colfer FTW!

  5. Dave says:

    I’m with Team Dinklage, too! I’m also rooting for Cat Deeley for SYTYCD.

    By the way, if you are going to watch DWTS or X Factor this season, you should check out Judge It Live during the shows. You can rate each performance in real time and also see everyone else’s ratings right in front of you. It should be really fun.

    Wish I could watch it unfortunately am here in ireland with no link :(

  7. Dave says:

    Boo hiss to Fox. 35 minutes late to the red carpet because of football run over. Not a good start.

  8. Mqry says:

    Why can’t an actor just accept the award graciously – it’s acting – not like they found a cure for cancer. Hard to watch sometimes.

  9. Susan says:

    Unfortunately I live in the USA outside of Evansville Indiana and we don’t have access to the Fox Channel I found out tonight. I think the big story of the night is that the more modern we get the less we have. I dont no if it’s Dish or Fox but there’s a big problem. We got it until this spring.

    EMMY missed the boat by not giving Friday Night Lights Best Drama. It was the Best Show ever put on TV.

  11. You gotta give it up for Jane Lynch. Four movies in the works, a hit TV series and Emcee of the Emmys! Wow!
