Sunday, September 18, 2011: 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards

The suspense of how many awards Mad Men will win and how many Justified will be snubbed is finally over: the Emmys are tonight, and the ceremony is going to fly by, according to producer Mark Burnett (and only him).

The three-hour ceremony, hosted by Jane Lynch, will be set at a "brisk, peppy pace" (read: Lynch will be singing. A lot.). Hopefully the telecast won't feature another Glee-themed cold open, like last year... but it so obviously will. Maybe an actor we really hate gets slushied -- Jennifer Morrison, perhaps?

Leading the race is Mildred Pierce, HBO's miniseries starring Kate Winslet, with 21 nominations. Mad Men holds second place with 19 nominations. Boardwalk Empire might just be the show to take the AMC darling off the period-piece pedestal, however: the HBO show took home seven awards at the Creative Arts Emmys last week, while Mad Men only won one. Drama indeed.

The Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony begins tonight at 8 PM on Fox. We'll be liveblogging, tweeting and updating you on the winners throughout whole night, with fashion and highlights tomorrow morning. Sit back, relax and enjoy the snark.
