Stephen Colbert Will Present The 2017 Emmys For The First Time


Stephen Colbert Emmy Awards

Stephen Colbert is set to host the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards this year at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, having been praised for his 'fearless passion' when it comes to live broadcasts. And it seems he isn't going to be holding back with the presidency jokes either.

This will mark a first for 'The Late Show' host, who has previously hosted events such as the 39th Annual Kennedy Center Honors. As the recipient of no less than nine Primetime Emmys himself for 'The Colbert Report' and 'The Daily Show', Stephen is no doubt familiar with the set-up - and it seems we can expect a lot of anti-Trump jokes at the Fall event.

Ricky Gervais Steals The Show By Pretending To Win An Emmy


Ricky Gervais Emmy Awards

Ricky Gervais didn't take home an Emmy at last night’s awards, but give it a week or so and we might all believe that he did. The actor and comedian stole the show during the award’s ceremony, when he pretended to win an award and even managed a few tears.

Ricky GervaisRicky Gervais pretended to win an Emmy award during Sunday night’s ceremony.

Taking to the stage to present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, Gervais (who was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie this year), told the audience, “Back again, to lose another one.”

Lena Dunham, Bryan Cranston, Sarah Hyland: Best Pictures From The Emmys 2014


Sarah Hyland Lena Dunham Bryan Cranston Emmy Awards Sarah Silverman

In an Emmy Awards that most agree was a stone-cold classic, AMC's meth-drama 'Breaking Bad' was the big winner, taking home most of the night's major TV awards including the big one: outstanding drama series. Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn all took home acting gongs, leaving a couple of big, big players - Matthew McConaughey, Kevin Spacey, Woody Harrelson - going home with nothing.

Cranston probably deserved his Emmy for meth dealer Walter White in Breaking Bad's final season, though some raised eyebrows at the snubbing of McConaughey given his faultless performance as Rust Cohle in HBO's 'True Detective'. The current recipient of the Oscar for best actor was nevertheless in high spirits and was the butt of several jokes given his status as one of the world's best. "You don't belong here," said Jimmy Kimmel at one point, "And take Julia Roberts with you."

TWA Flight 800: Is This The Biggest Cover Up In U.S. History? [Trailer]


Emmy Awards

You may or may not be familiar with the story of TWA Flight 800, though a new documentary by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Kristina Borjesson into what really happened on July 17 1996 looks to be one of the most thrilling movies of the year. The Trans World Airlines Flight 800 - leaving JFK en route to Paris and Rome - had been in the air just 12 minutes when it exploded, killing all 230 passengers on-board.

After the FBI were drafted in to take interviews from eye-witnesses, it was decided that the accident was caused by fuel/air explosion in the centre wing tank, though almost everyone interview mentioned seeing a streaking object in the sky - not unlike a missile. Many of the witnesses were reported to have been silenced by the FBI and only spurious transcripts - not word for word - were made available.

Neil Patrick Harris Emmy Awards Seth Macfarlane Liam Neeson Charlize Theron

Neil Patrick Harris has landed the top awards hosting job in television for the second time. Such is the natural ability of the man, that organizers of the Primetime Emmy Awards have invited him back to helm the show at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on September 22, 2013.

"Four years ago, Neil was an amazing Emmy host and we are excited to have him back," Bruce Rosenblum, the Television Academy chairman and CEO, said in a statement. "Neil is an extremely gifted and inventive performer, and we look forward to seeing what he has in store this year." A hugely popular awards show host, Harris said he "couldn't be more honored and excited" to host the Emmys - the biggest date on the television industry's calendar. The 'How I Met Your Mother' actor is also hosting the Tony Awards for the fourth time this year, which honors the best shows and performances on Broadway. This year's ceremony comes from the Radio City Music Hall in New York next month.

A three-time Emmy Award winner himself, Neil Patrick Harris is currently shooting Seth Macfarlane's new comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West, about a cowardly farmer who seeks the help of a gunslinger's wife to help him win back the woman who left him. It also stars Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson and Charlize Theron and hits theaters on May 30, 2014.

Emmy Awards Set To Shake Up The ‘Usual’ Outcomes


Emmy Awards Jon Stewart Jeff Probst Jimmy Fallon

The Emmy Awards have been accused of being dull and repetitive in the past, with the winners of TV’s top prize rarely changing from year to year. In the face of this rather severe criticism, the powers that be at the Emmy headquarters have promised a shake up for this years Award ceremony and said that there may be a few surprises in store concerning where certain gongs will be handed.

With 17 nominations each, Mad Men and American Horror Story are leading the pack, with the 1950’s set advertising drama set for a fifth straight ‘Outstanding Drama Series’ win. Likewise, Jon Stewart’s long running The Daily Show is set for a tenth straight ‘Outstanding Variety Show’ win, and Jeff Probst expected to win yet another award for his hosting of the reality series Survivor.

This might not be the case however, as the foundations really are expected to be shaken, with Probst not even being nominated for his favourite category this year. What exactly will happen is yet to be seen, but host Jimmy Fallon and the rest of the people behind the scenes have promised that things will be a little different. Still, with falling ratings, especially compared to the Grammys and the Oscars, the powers that be will have to pull something special out of the bag to prove its worth.
