63rd Primetime Emmy Awards: The Liveblog

Counting down the minutes folks! The live blog starts at 8 sharp.

8:00 - And we're off! How will tonight's opening skit compare to last year's great "Born to Run" homage? I can never remember whether it's okay to like Jimmy Fallon now or not, but that was a pretty great beginning. Bonus points for the Jon Hamm/Jorge Garcia cameos.

8:01 - Yay Leonard Nimoy! That's a good way to start, for sure.

8:02 - Hmm, yeah I prefer the Springsteen already. C'mon Jane, showtunes are soooo 1995.

8:03 - Oh Jeremy Piven. We won't miss you at all.

8:04 - I like that they don't even let Nick Offerman be his actual self. That's how giant a shadow Ron Swanson casts now.

8:05 - Awww, couldn't we have seen more FNL? I know Mad Men is probably winning Best Drama, but give those boys a victory lap!

8:06 - Opening skit grade: C+. Some fun cameos, but definitely not on par with last year. Sorry Jane. Look forward to your monologue though!

8:09 - And Jane becomes the first TV person to hit up Martin Scorsese for work. The perils of sitting in the front row. Strangely short monologue.

8:10 - The EmmyTones, huh? Happy with five out of the six of them anyway. Who the hell let Wilmer onstage?

8:11 - Late night show host duel! I woulda thought Fallon would be more of a scrapper.

8:14 - Wow, Julie Bowen beats out Sofia Vergara for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy. How much friction will that cause on the set tomorrow morning? Consider it hazard pay for her stint on Lost

8:15 - She's as shocked about winning as Sofia is! Nice two husbands line though. And you couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate an anniversary.
