The 2014 Emmy winners were announced during Monday's awards ceremony, broadcast on NBC and hosted by 'SNL' vet and 'Late Night' show host Seth Meyers. While there are always a fair share of shockers -- like how last year saw 'The Newsroom' star Jeff Daniels beating out Bryan Cranston for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama -- everyone had their eyes on 'Breaking Bad,' given it finished its final season late last year, HBO's breakout hit 'True Detective,' Netflix's 'Orange Is the New Black' and FX's buzzed-about 'Fargo' series.
Seth Meyers has been taking a little bit of time off from 'Late Night' to prep for a very big, very primetime gig as host of the 2014 Emmys. He's even had to temporarily decamp to Los Angeles to get ready for the show, a trip that apparently involved some very fraught air travel. Turns out, when you're hosting the Emmys, you need TV props, and most of our most lauded shows involve items that, well, just aren't air travel friendly.
Apart from all the good spirits of the evening, every Emmys inevitably becomes a somber occasion in honoring those we've lost over the course of the year. Now, with Robin Williams' tragic suicide still weighing on the world at large, the 2014 Emmy Awards have announced that Billy Crystal will step up to honor his fallen friend in the memoriam segment of the evening.
It's increasingly less likely we'll ever see Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul return to their famed 'Breaking Bad' roles for AMC spinoff 'Better Call Saul,' but with the 2014 Emmy Awards airing this Sunday, NBC has cooked up an even quicker reunion. Watch Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul trade barbs with 'Veep''s Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a new 2014 Emmy sketch for "Barely Legal Pawn."
The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in, and expectedly outraging everyone across the internet. It takes a 'True Detective' to figure out this 'American Horror Story,' but did the right nominations go to the right people? Will Tatiana Maslany ever get her due? Can dogs really write blogs? We weigh in on the upsets, upchucks and underdogs of today's TV snubs.
Just when you thought 2014 couldn't be going any better for former 'SNL' head writer, star, and current 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers, the former "Weekend Update" host will really have a weekend to handle. NBC has announced that Seth Meyers will make his Emmy hosting debut as the 2014 host of the 66th annual Emmy Awards, picking up from previous host Neil Patrick Harris!
Amid all the other major premieres this week and next, we'd nearly forgotten that 'SNL' will kick off its 39th season this coming Saturday, with alumni Tina Fey taking up hosting duties and Arcade Fire on the musical side. The first preview for Fey's return to the 'SNL' stage has arrived, but has everything already come unhooked?
Claire Danes took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 2013 Emmys this Sunday. Danes won the same honor during last year's Emmys, as well.
