Our Hot Date Tonight: We’re Live Blogging the Emmys at 5pm West Coast Time

By: Sunday September 22, 2013 4:00 pm

Starting at 5pm West Coast time Sunday–that’s tonight!–we’ll be live blogging Emmys, with a bowl of popcorn, a case of Perrier (water, not Jouët), and of course chocolate. The Emmys are broadcast live on CBS, with Neil Patrick Harris hosting. And Elton John will be opening the show as a tribute to Liberace. I sense the Russian government refusing to issue his visa to perform in 3…2…1!


FDL: Live Blogging the Oscars

I miss having only five films in Best Picture, since I think it dilutes the vote. I’d love to see Argo win, but it will probably be Lincoln, the easy choice.

The conference is attracting a bit of attention, especially among WikiLeaks supporters on Twitter, after WikiLeaks released a statement claiming that UNESCO had not invited anyone from the organization to speak at the conference.
