What's This?

As the Emmy Awards 2015 goes live tonight 7 p.m. CDT at Fox, here are the latest updates on what’s happening at the show and who are the winners for this year’s Emmy Awards.

Unlike the MTV Video Music Awards, which was known for its rowdy and anything-goes atmosphere, the Emmy Awards ceremony has been known to be more dignified and more sophisticated. Tonight’s three-hour event is airing live from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, according to AL. The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg will host the show.


Among the nominees for this year’s Emmy’s are: Orange Is the New Black, Transparent, and Empire. This year’s key categories are dominated by shows with transgender/gay issues and African-American actors.

AL also wrote that at the September 12 Creative Arts Emmy Awards event, early winners have been announced, which included Alabama native Reg E. Cathey from “House of Cards” for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.

Los Angeles Times just reported that Tony Hale has just been announced as the winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy on the on-going ceremony tonight. The actor said as he received his award that “I just had a fear my zipper’s down.” Hale bagged the award in 2013 and was nominated for the same category last year.
