2020 Emmys logo

Who’s ready to watch their favorite TV actors and creatives give virtual acceptance speeches?

The 2020 Emmys will officially be a remote awards show, kicking off what will almost positively be a bizarre and straight up weird awards season as the coronavirus pandemic continues. The show, which is being hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, sent out letters to the recent Emmy nominees informing them that no, they don’t have to worry about showing up to an event in person this year. Instead, according to the letter, the virtual show’s “informal theme for the night is ‘come as you are, but make an effort!'” But thankfully, it sounds like the producers are taking steps to make sure the ceremony doesn’t look like just another average Zoom call.

Robert Lopez Double EGOT

Though you may not know Robert Lopez by name, you certainly know his work. Teamed with his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez, he’s responsible for infecting your kids with the tune “Let It Go” and all of the other original songs from Disney’s hit animated musical Frozen. Last night Lopez added more acclaim to his career by making awards history after winning yet another Oscar.

Robert Lopez and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez won the Oscar for Best Original Song (again) for their work on the song “Remember Me” from Coco. While this is an honor in itself, it turned out to be an even bigger deal for Robert, because he became the first person ever to get a double EGOT.

2016 Emmy Opening - Jimmy Kimmel

Last night ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 68th Annual Emmy Awards, and he made the typically long-running ceremony a little more tolerable with his quick wit. As is customary for the show’s host, Kimmel partook in a fun opening number that saw him meeting up with some familiar faces from the world of television, all of which were nominated in some form for the awards handed out throughout the night.

After the jump, watch Jimmy Kimmel do some carpool karaoke with James Corden, hitch a ride with a certain modern family, run into a a TV president and even ride a dragon in the 2016 Emmy opening. As a bonus, you can also watch Matt Damon showing up during the ceremony to mock Jimmy Kimmel for losing the Emmy he was nominated for last night. Read More »

2016 Emmy Winners

Last night, the 68th Annual Emmy Awards handed out trophies to some of the best talents working in television today. Broadcast live on ABC, the 2016 Emmys really showed off their diversity, not only with their large roster of presenters, but also with those who took home awards last night.

The show’s host Jimmy Kimmel said at the top of the show that if your show didn’t have a dragon or a white Bronco in it, you should just go home, and the winners pretty much made that true. American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson took home some big awards along with Game of Thrones, but shows like Master of None, Transparent, Veep and Saturday Night Live got plenty of love too.

2015 Emmys opening

Last night brought the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards to Fox, and you can find the full list of big winners from television’s biggest night right here. But in addition to the awards being handed out, some fun was hand thanks to host Andy Samberg.

While Samberg’s jokes struggled here and there, his earnest charm and goofiness helped some of the more silly jokes land pretty well, unless of course you just don’t like the Saturday Night Live veteran.

And if you missed last night’s telecast completely, and you’re just looking to catch some of the funnier highlights, we’ve got Andy Samberg’s 2015 Emmys opening monologue, as well as the really fun opening musical number featuring our host joined by the likes of Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Jon Hamm. Speaking of Jon Hamm, there’s also an awesome Mad Men spoof that you should just watch for the shocking conclusion. Read More »
