Here’s what you can look forward to on tonight’s Primetime Emmys!
Tonight’s highly anticipated 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will bring together great actors and actresses, laughter, fashion, award speeches and a sweet memorandum for the late Robin Williams at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The Emmys are already shaking things up by airing on a Monday night so what else can we expect?
You can expect some laughs and light stabs at celebs with host Seth Meyers, the former Saturday Night Live star and Weekend Update anchor. We will also see some tight races for Emmy gold and some notable presenters on stage. Will you be tuning in tonight?
Special Memorandum: Every year, the Emmys have an "In Memoriam" segment and this year we can expect a special one for Robin Williams. It’s been announced that friend and colleague Billy Crystal will honor the late Williams.
"We felt we needed to do something powerful and memorable. Billy seemed like the perfect choice," said Emmys producer Don Mischer. Other icons we’ve lost include Lauren Bacall, Shirley Temple, Harold Ramis, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Notable Presenters: Stars from Nashville, Game of Thrones, Scandal and more have been confirmed as this year’s presenters. Some celebs that will be presenting include Ricky Gervais, Chris Hardwick, Katherine Heigl, Hayden Panettiere, Kate Walsh, Lena Headey and more!
Records May Be Broken: If Modern Family wins Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row, it ties the record with Frasier from 1994 to 1998. Also, if Breaking Bad wins, it will be the fourth Drama Series to triumph for its final season. Finally, Jim Parsons could make history by winning Best Comedy Actor for the fourth time. Go Sheldon!
Tight Races for Awards: A tight race is on for Claire Danes, Robin Wright and Kerry Washington who are up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and Bryan Cranston, Kevin Spacey and Jon Hamm, who are all also up for awards.
Stay tuned tonight at 8p.m. ET for the long-awaited Emmy’s on NBC!
