Little-watched cable comedies had a moment in the spotlight early in the Emmy Awards, as Merritt Wever of “Nurse Jackie” and Tony Hale of “Veep” picked up supporting actress and actor in a comedy trophies, respectively.

Meanwhile, 30 seconds into the telecast the phrase “binge-watching” made its first apperance.Netflix stole the thunder back during the nominations this summer, snagging 14 nods and becoming the first Internet-streamed show in history to be up for major awards. It continued to have a presence during the awards ceremony, as Kevin Spacey parodied his “House of Cards” character’s breaking the fourth wall, addressing the camera during a bit that saw former hosts of the Emmy Awards crash Neil Patrick Harris’s opening monologue.“It’s all going according to my plan,” Spacey gloated in the audience, talking directly to the camera while the former hosts (Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch) bickered with NPH behind him on stage. “Getting them to sabotage Neil was almost too easy.”The Emmy Awards aren’t known for shaking things up. So, relatively speaking, this could be an especially groundbreaking year for the show as “House of Cards” is expected to duke it out with critically-adored “Breaking Bad” and last year’s champ “Homeland” for best drama series. If “Cards” prevails, it would become the first Internet-streamed show to win a major award. The political drama made a big splash in its debut season, as stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are up for acting nominations, while David Fincher represents in the directing category.

Other Washington-based shows could have a big night, with series such as “Homeland,” “Veep,” “Political Animals” and “Scandal” all nominated for trophies. “Scandal” star Kerry Washington continues to raise her profile, earning a lead actress nod – and if she wins, she’ll become the first African-American actress to win the award. (She is the first African-American actress to even be nominated in the category since Cicely Tyson in 1995.)

A hint of modesty infused the red carpet at the 65th annual Emmy Awards. Call it a backlash to headlines of nude pop stars and a sensational buff-colored bikini at MTV’s Video Music Awards. Buttoned-up gowns felt fresh compared to the amount of skin seen on carpets of late.

The visual interest was provided by unique necklines. Zooey Deschanel’s seafoam J. Mendel delicately traced the line of her collarbones before breaking into a small slit diffusing the solid block of color.

Taylor Schilling, of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” chose a haltered pearl-hued Thakoon featuring a high front slit and open back.

Padma Lakshmi’s lovely Kaufmanfranco felt balanced with a moderate neckline and sheer back, as well as the tiniest of slits along her svelt torso.

The color, dubbed pomegrante by fellow “Porject Runway” host Tim Gunn, was similar in hue to Mindy Kaling’s decadent Georges Chakra.Zosia Mamet of “Girls” wore an Honor gown that had a halter akin to Klum’s, though the full skirt and flower print softened the look to fit her feminine sensibility. There was no “side-boob” fodder this year for Michelle Dockery of “Downtown Abbey,” whose Chado Ralph Rucci revealed a little much at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last winter. A chic color-blocked Prada was appropriately covered, feeling on trend in this season of conservatism. See red carpet photos here.

Alec Baldwin boycotts Emmys after Fox removes Rupert Murdoch joke

Alex Baldwin announced he would not be attending the Emmys via Twitter after his joke about News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch was cut from a segment that he had recorded to open the broadcast.

On Thursday, Baldwin had tweeted “I did a short Emmy pretape a few days ago. Now they tell me NewsCorp may cut the funniest line.”

Apparently, Fox was uncomfortable including a joke that Baldwin made that had to do with Murdoch and the much-publicized phone-hacking scandal, and they had it cut from Baldwin’s script.

According to EW, the network said the decision to cut the joke was made at the Fox level, not News Corp.

When Baldwin found out about the cut he no longer wanted his segment to be part of the broadcast and Fox has consequently re-shot the clip with Leonard Nimoy. Today, Baldwin tweeted, “Fox did kill my NewsCorp hacking joke. Which sucks bc I think it would have made them look better. A little.”

2011 Emmy Nominations Announced

Published by EOTM News Editor on July 15th, 2011 - in Awards Shows, Celebrity News, Emmys, Entertainment News

Two sweeping new HBO dramas, “Boardwalk Empire” and “Game of Thrones,” will challenge AMC’s three-time winner “Mad Men” for the title of best drama in the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards this year.

The nominations, announced on Thursday by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, also placed the outgoing DirecTV/NBC show “Friday Night Lights” into contention for the drama award for the first time, alongside Showtime’s “Dexter” and “The Good Wife” on CBS.

Of all the programs on television, the HBO mini-series “Mildred Pierce” was the academy’s most-nominated this year, with 21. “Mad Men” picked up the most nominations of any single drama, 19, up from 17 last year, while “Boardwalk Empire” picked up 18.

Terence Winter, the creator and executive producer of “Boardwalk Empire,” volunteered no predictions about his show’s chances. Instead, he said in an interview, “I am just thrilled to be able to amortize my tuxedo for yet another year.”

Kyra Sedgwick, who won for best lead actress in a drama for “The Closer” on TNT last year, was snubbed this year; among the nominees are Julianna Margulies of “The Good Wife,” Connie Britton of “Friday Night Lights,” Elisabeth Moss of “Mad Men” and Mireille Enos of “The Killing,” also on AMC. For Ms. Enos, an alumna of HBO’s widely praised “Big Love” who plays the homicide detective Sarah Linden on “The Killing,” the nomination is her first shot at an Emmy, television’s top prize.

“The work itself is the goal,” Ms. Enos said on Thursday from a movie set in London, “but when you get a part as rich as Sarah, there is the thought at the back of your mind that this is a part that could potentially bring you to the Emmys, and that’s an exciting possibility, so to see that happen is really thrilling.”

There was one new entrant in the best actor category: Timothy Olyphant of FX’s “Justified,” who joined, among others, Jon Hamm of “Mad Men” and Steve Buscemi of “Boardwalk Empire.” The category’s three-time winner, Bryan Cranston, was not nominated because his show, “Breaking Bad,” was ineligible. Its next eligible season starts this month.

The Fox network will televise the Emmy Awards on Sept. 18. It is a reflection of the waning influence of network television — and of the dearth of new hit shows this past season — that “The Good Wife” was the only purely network-distributed drama to be nominated on Thursday. “Friday Night Lights” is distributed jointly by DirecTV and NBC.

In the best comedy category, the three-year-old CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” was nominated for the first time, representing a major victory for its producer, Chuck Lorre, as well as for its studio, Warner Brothers, which campaigned aggressively for the nod. “Big Bang” will challenge last year’s winner, ABC’s “Modern Family,” as well as Fox’s “Glee” and three NBC sitcoms, “The Office,” “30 Rock” and “Parks and Recreation.”

In recent years the Emmys have favored single-camera comedies like “30 Rock” over multicamera, laugh-track comedies like “Big Bang,” making the nomination significant.

Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki of “Big Bang” were each nominated for lead actor in a comedy series, joining Steve Carell of “The Office,” who has been nominated every full year since the show had its debut in 2005 but has never won; this is his last year on the show. Also nominated in that category was Louis C. K. of FX’s “Louie,” who said in an interview, “I’d love to be able to say that I’m just a pure artist and that awards are meaningless, but getting the nomination is cool.”
