Modern Family, Glee, Betty White - All Win At The Emmys

Eric
Some pretty big wins at the Emmys tonight. Modern Family picked up three big awards, including the trophy for Outstanding Comedy and Supporting Actor for Eric Stonestreet, who plays one half of the gay couple on the show. Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris and Ryan Murphy all picked up awards for Glee, which inspired a pretty cool opening number. Betty White won her 7th Emmy for her Facebook-initiated gig on Saturday Night Live earlier this year.

Take a peek at the complete list of winners, as well as the aforementioned energetic opening skit, AFTER THE JUMP.

Movies: Fall Film Preview

FALLFILMPREVIEW
Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley look ahead to awards season

GuestbloggerNATHANIEL ROGERS
...watches trailers through fingers (too many spoilers) and waits impatiently for the feature presentation. He blogs daily at the Film Experience.


With summer winding down and nothing thrilling opening in theaters (despite marquees suggesting otherwise), it's the perfect time to look both backwards and forwards. Now's the time to catch up with some of 2010's best in case you missed any. Some of them like I Am Love, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, The Kids Are All Right, Winter's Bone and Toy Story 3 are still in theaters. Other acclaimed first quarter releases like Fish Tank and South Korea's Mother have hit DVD. So get caught up before the Fall films hit.

As with the summer preview, we're dividing the intriguing offerings up into categories using handy film titles because You Gotta Have A Gimmick. For each month we'll look at THE CHAMP (a possible blockbuster), DIVA (fierce women),  THE PRESTIGE (Oscar hopefuls), WHERE THE BOYS ARE (for the hotness) and TRUE STORIES (documentaries or fact-based fiction). Obviously what follows is but a small sampling of what's to come. All in good time...

Have you seen Betty White and Sigourney Weaver's catfight with Kristen Bell? The ladies of You Again get their claws out AFTER THE JUMP...

Here's the First Hoodie from Betty White's New Clothing Line

Bettywhite

WWD reports that the last living Golden Girl is now branching into fashion:

"For an 88-year-old, Betty White has more street cred than people a quarter of her age. After appearing on “Saturday Night Live” with Jay-Z (and earning the TV show its best ratings in 18 months) and landing a new comedy series called 'Hot in Cleveland,' White is launching her own line of T-shirts and hoodies that will hit stores in August. Through an exclusive licensing deal with Jerry Leigh Apparel, a Van Nuys, Calif.-based clothing manufacturer, White’s smiling face was recast as a striking black-and-white mug with her first name outlined in red. Targeting the digital generation, the hoodies feature washable earbuds and a jack to plug into iPods and MP3 players. Portions of sales for the $28 Ts and $48 hoodies will go to the Morris Animal Foundation, an animal health organization, for which White serves as a trustee."

I wonder if Barbara Kruger (sorry, closer to Shepard Fairey "OBEY", as Matt points out to me) is getting royalties?

62nd Annual Emmy Nominations Announced: "Out"-Standing Nominees

Gay

Good news for Colfer: A nomination. Bad news: The competition.

The nominations for the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards were announced this morning. Interestingly, almost half the shows nominated for Outstanding Drama or Outstanding Comedy are first-time nominees.

Duking it out in the same category...please keep it classy for Lily's sake.

Glee Jane Lynch Gay actors Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer were nominated for their supporting work on Glee, while out actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and gay-for-pay Eric Stonestreet were tipped for their supporting work as a gay couple on Modern Family. Neil Patrick Harris was again nominated for How I Met Your Mother. Colfer vs. Ferguson vs. Stonestreet vs. Harris? Tough call. (Jon Cryer for Two and a Half Men and Ty Burrell from Modern Family round out the supporting category for the men.)

Lynch was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for appearing on Two and a Half Men, but she's up against Betty White for her SNL gig. White's chances seem golden.

Colfer has already thanked fans for their support via Twitter.

Full list of the major categories is after the jump. Who, if anyone, are you rooting for? Who, if anyone, do you think wuz robbed?
