For those asking, "Why are the Emmys on a Monday? Aren't they usually on Sunday?"
sarah.rodman 8/25/2014 11:01:13 PM
You would be correct. The answer in a word: Football. Sweet, lucrative football. But, considering the MTV VMAs were last night and Beyonce was receiving the Video Vanguard award, I would not rule out intervention from... "The Beygency."

So we're flipping between E! and NBC. Lotsa RED on screen right now with Giuliana and Claire Danes.
sarah.rodman 8/25/2014 11:33:37 PM
Wow, Kerry Washington is managing to be on both E
&NBC simultaneously. Olivia Pope would be proud of the multi-tasking. #RedCarpetGladiator

By the way my Emmy snark partners are the Globe's own @MeredithGoldste and @ktkjohnston. I will only tweet if they are funny. #PressureisOn

So silver and red seem to be our palette for the evening. Adjust accordingly people. (No fashion criticism from me. #WomaninBlack)
sarah.rodman 8/25/2014 11:43:41 PM
So show in 15 minutes. Who's got predictions?
sarah.rodman 8/25/2014 11:46:25 PM
Okay, I am sartorially-challeged but I really liked that Julia Roberts dress. Kicky. #Emmys

Host Seth Meyers is on. "We had comedies that made you laugh &
comedies that made you cry, because they were dramas submitted as comedies."

sarah.rodman 8/26/2014 12:10:25 AM
Burrell says he's reading a speech written by"Modern Family" kids. Sweet & funny, snarking on how only adult actors get noms. #Emmys
sarah.rodman 8/26/2014 12:12:34 AM
Sad for Andre Braugher but that was a good speech. And, here, speeches matter. #NextYearCaptainHolt #Emmys
sarah.rodman 8/26/2014 12:14:58 AM
What the what?? What was that 1/4-ed screen & "Flashlight" about?? Did they just play "Rosanna"? Now I'm obsessed with the band. #Emmys
sarah.rodman 8/26/2014 12:17:23 AM
Best comedy series writing: Louis C.K., for "Louie."
sarah.rodman 8/26/2014 12:17:59 AM
Short and sweet speech and nice tux. Go Louis! #Emmys
sarah.rodman 8/26/2014 12:18:44 AM
(Sorry they do "outstanding"
not "best" at the #Emmys. Although I think people are saying it.)
sarah.rodman 8/26/2014 12:19:44 AM
"How many of those speeches of yours are we supposed to sit through?" Jimmy Kimmel goofs on McConaughey.. #JKL #Emmys
