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."

Sarah Silverman Took Pot to the Emmys. Obviously [Pictures]


Sarah Silverman Emmy Awards

Sarah Silverman took pot to the Emmys. Yep, it happened. The comedienne headed down the red-carpet and stopped for a quick chat with E!'s Giuliana Rancic who was asking celebrities to empty the contents of their purses on television. For some reason.

Anyway, Silverman was only too happy to give Rancic a sneak peak in her bag - even though she was carrying drugs. We say drugs, we mean a vaporizer pen, which is perfectly legal in the state of California - providing Silverman has a valid medical marijuana prescription.

After 51 Years Of Waiting Bob Newhart Finally Wins His First Emmy Award


Bob Newhart Emmy Awards

Bob Newhart has finally ended more than half a centuries wait by winning his first ever Emmy Award. The veteran comedian and entertainer was first nominated for the award in 1962 for his writing on The Bob Newhart Show, but it took a guest spot on The Big Bang Theory to finally secure him one of the coveted awards, with the Primetime Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday, 15 September celebrating his appearance on the sitcom with the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award.

The Primetime Creative Arts Emmys airs a week before the main Emmy Awards, and usually celebrates the behind-the-scenes crew on TV as well as honouring guest actors. Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre served as the venue for the awards show, where a number of television's brightest stars had gathered to celebrate their achievements from the past year. They were also on hand to give Newhart a standing ovation when his name was read out as the winner of his award, an act that Newhart says he was "totally unprepared" for. In his acceptance speech he gave thanks to his wife of 50 years, his four children and the cast and crew of The Big Bang Theory, “who really threw themselves on the sword for me.”

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.

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.
