Most people who have a hit show, indie accolades, and scads of awards and nominations before the age of thirty would probably take the time to attend their high school reunion and check in with everyone else they attended school with. Do you have a hit show, guy from English class? You, the girl who was mean to me in P.E., were you nominated for an Emmy?

In case you missed it, because you were muting the commercial breaks or what have you, Fox debuted a new 'Gone Girl' trailer during the 2014 Emmys, broadcast on NBC Monday night and showcasing never-before-seen footage of Ben Affleck in this twisted tale from director David Fincher and the original best-selling novel.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus walked away with the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for 'Veep' at the 2014 Emmys, but not before making out with 'Seinfeld' guest star Bryan Cranston in front of the stage.
While most people appearing on stage at the 2014 Emmy Awards bent over backwards to be polite and respectable and as totally inoffensive as possible, comedian Billy Eichner doesn't care! The internet video celebrity and 'Parks and Recreation' co-star brought his delightful 'Billy on the Streets' series to the stodgy ceremony and now the rest of the show has to live up to it.
