The ratings for The Emmys were worse than last year, which were also worse than the previous year

The ratings for The Emmys were worse than last year, which were also worse than the previous year

This year’s Emmy Awards went off surprisingly well, considering that the nominees were all remote and Skyping in with laptops and webcams lent to them by the Emmys producers (“Skyping in” is what we used to call “Being on a Zoom call”), with

some of the Friends showing up for a reunion , Schitt’s Creek winning all of the awards , and host Jimmy Kimmel delivering a pretty solid/weird monologue...

Watch Baby Yoda vibe to the Schitt’s Creek and Curb themes in this Emmys music medley

Happy Emmys weekend!

On Sunday , in what we can only assume will be a deeply strange ceremony, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will hand out their most high-profile awards of the year (though they’ve been doling out the Creative Arts Emmys all week; congrats to Emmy-winner Quibi , a phrase that will nestle comfortably against “Oscar-winner Suicide Squad” in our brains...

What shows will win, and which should win, at the 2020 Emmys

What shows will win, and which should win, at the 2020 Emmys

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will still take place on Sunday, September 20, and we can once again count on Jimmy Kimmel to host. The rest feels more up in the air than usual, as the ceremony will be attended virtually by nominees and presenters. Here are A.V. Club TV editor Danette Chavez’s predictions of the winners of the major series awards, as well as some last-minute stumping for ...

The 2020 Primetime Emmys are going global. Here's what we know so far

The 2020 Primetime Emmys are going global. Here's what we know so far

If the

2020 MTV Video Music Awards managed to confirm anything for us, it’s this: Mid-pandemic awards ceremonies have the capacity to get really damn weird. Between superimposed green screen images of fake audiences, performances spread throughout the city, and a host trying her absolute best to bolster the energy of a near-empty room, it’s becoming increasingly more apparent that these...

When the stars come to shine and on Twitter we whine, that’s the Emmys!

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Sunday, September 20th. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

67th Primetime Emmy Awards (Fox, 8 p.m.): Once again, it’s time to roll out the red carpet for the annual parade of glitz and glamour, insufferable bits that go on too long, and resentment that truly worthy shows are snubbed in favor of picks the Academy phones in. That’s right, it’s the Emmys! Will...

Without the awards, the Emmys is very short

<a href="https://news.avclub.com/without-the-awards-the-emmys-is-very-short-1798284521" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');">Without the awards, the Emmys is very short</a>

One of the lesser talking points on last night’s 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards is how little fat there was to trim on the broadcast. Where many other award shows typically go over their allotted time slot, the Emmys nailed the landing on their three-hour run time, mostly thanks to few diversions from the actual presentation of awards.

Andy Samberg will host this year’s Emmys

Continuing the awards-show tradition of recruiting unlikable, polarizing celebrities whose accents many people find annoying, Deadline reports that Andy Samberg has been recruited to host this year’s Emmys awards ceremony. Samberg, formerly of Saturday Night Live and currently of Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, performed his ritual initiation into the secret society of Emmys hosts at last year’s...

The Emmys celebrate solving every problem in a joyous, premature musical number

After a couple years of hard work and conscientiousness, the entertainment industry has done it: Everything is fixed. As noted in the musical opening at the Emmy Awards tonight, the bad guys are all in jail, the Emmy nominees are just a hair more diverse than they normally are, and both a white guy and a black guy are hosting the ceremony. The fun, relatively low-key number featured a...

UPDATED: Here are the nominees for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards

The nominees for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards were just announced by Orange Is The New Black’s Uzo Aduba and So You Think You Can Dance’s Cat Deeley in Los Angeles, a change from the Emmys tradition of making some poor actress get up at the crack of dawn to announce the nominees. That’s not the only change in Emmys protocol this year, as a few months ago the Television Academy changed its...

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls asked the best Emmy red carpet questions

While the usual suspects bantered with celebrities about their outfits, the California heat, and their jobs, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls were fighting the good fight on last night’s Emmy red carpet by asking the stars questions that were actually interesting. The idea is that women have more to talk about besides their clothes, and likewise, their fans have more that they want to hear. By using...

Love is real at the Emmys, depending on how you feel about public marriage proposals

Let’s be totally honest here: The Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special Emmy going to Glenn Weiss, the guy who directed the Oscars ceremony, seemed pretty boring. It’s the kind of award that’s usually good for a snack break, since most TV viewers probably don’t care who directed the Academy Awards, but Weiss went into his acceptance speech with a plan to spice things up. After...

Atlanta's Teddy Perkins is at the Emmys, and it's real weird

A fun game during the crowd shots at award shows is to try and pick out the best famous people you recognize, like Carson Daly, whoever’s lucky enough to sit next to Carson Daly, and any super-big stars who should be doing something more fun than politely clapping for people who are less famous than they are. However, at tonight’s Emmy awards, this fun game has taken a chilling turn thanks to...

Stephen Colbert claims "everything is better on TV" and Sean Spicer makes an Emmys cameo

<a href="https://www.avclub.com/stephen-colbert-claims-everything-is-better-on-tv-and-1818494843" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');">Stephen Colbert claims &quot;everything is better on TV&quot; and Sean Spicer makes an Emmys cameo</a>

Stephen Colbert kicked off the 69th Emmy Awards telecast with a song-and-dance number, with the whole thing dedicated to the fact that real life is pretty shitty and TV is fun and cool. It was a catchy performance with a number of cameos from people who appear in popular TV shows, and it even ended with a bunch of Handmaid’s Tale-themed backup dancers.

His actual monologue continued with that...

Celebrities Had a Very Fun Night Hamming It Up With Bad Man Sean Spicer at the Emmy Awards

If you hadn’t already heard, Sean Spicer, onetime potato-faced mouthpiece for our white nationalist president, made a surprise appearance at Sunday evening’s Emmy Awards. And, reader? The celebrities LOVED him.

They didn’t seem to care that his first briefing as White House Press Secretary was just him yelling a lie, over and over again.

Or that he followed that briefing up with a super-whiny...

Here are the winners of the 69th Emmy Awards

Last year’s Emmy Awards got political, with Jill Soloway exhorting the audience to “topple the patriarchy” and some people who aren’t white men actually winning awards. And that was before Donald Trump won the election and made everything political. This year, Stephen Colbert set an odd, Jimmy-Fallon-rumpling-Trump’s-hair sort of tone by having Sean Spicer come out during the opening...

Sean Spicer, for his part, thinks his Emmys redemption arc was “kinda funny” 

<a href="https://www.avclub.com/sean-spicer-for-his-part-thinks-his-emmys-redemption-1818514072" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');">Sean Spicer, for his part, thinks his Emmys redemption arc was “kinda funny” </a>

Sean Spicer’s appearance at the Emmys last night has turned out to be a polarizing one, unsurprisingly enough. After all, even though he’s been booted from the White House, that doesn’t erase Spicer’s history of attacking the press, gaslighting the American public, and, oh yeah, defending Hitler in his short-lived capacity as press secretary. But he was still invited on by Emmys host Stephen...

Survey suggests nobody actually watches those Emmy-nominated cable or streaming shows

A new survey, reported on by Variety, suggests that the average American couldn’t care less about the “Golden Age Of TV,” with most respondents answering that they’ve never even heard of Emmy-nominated shows like The Handmaid’s Tale, Master Of None, or Atlanta. These aren’t tv-free snobs or total luddites, either; of the 500 respondents questioned by Katz Media Group, 51 percent had active...

A lot of famous people at the Emmys were starstruck by the Property Brothers

A lot of famous people at the Emmys were starstruck by the Property Brothers

Even celebrities can get starstruck. It’s a natural state of human emotion. But the people who make your favorite people all weak in the knees can be a little surprising. Who knew, for instance, that Taylor Swift had a thing for Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan? Or that Stephen Colbert could be such a nerd about everything Lord Of The Rings related—McKellan included, of course.

One of the...
