ICYMI: Billy Crystal & The Emmys Pay Tribute to Robin Williams

Nothing needs to be said about this tribute other than it was perfect. A longtime friend saying goodbye to a longtime friend. The video montage was perfect as well.

‘Billy On The Street’ Was the Funniest Part of the 2014 Emmys

If you’ve never seen it, Billy on the Street is a web series featuring comedian Billy Eichner harassing the people of New York City. One of his major skits is asking strangers very simple questions, and if they win, they receive a dollar. The catch is the way he approaches people and asks the question, which usually frazzles people and throws them off. Last night, Billy and host Seth Meyers took to the streets of Los Angeles to do an Emmy themed episode, and the result was pure gold. No sir, that is not Seth Macfarlane.

…And This is Why Seth Meyers is the Man

And the look on Seth Meyers' face when he took the stage:

Genuine delight for his friend and former SNL co-star Andy Samberg, who won his first Emmy last night. Hit the music!

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Are My Spirit Animals

(Source) NEW YORK  — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have signed up to host the Golden Globes for two more years.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association said Tuesday that the former “Saturday Night Live” chums will be back after a successful show earlier this year. Next year’s Golden Globes will be held in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Jan. 12.

The two stars garnered good reviews with this year’s show, with an act less biting than predecessor Ricky Gervais yet still fun.

Allen Shapiro, who runs Dick Clark Productions, said Fey and Poehler have a “truly unique chemistry.”

Sweet Jeebus this is awesome. Two more years of Poehler and Fey is just what I needed to get my mind of the guy who has sex with cars. Witty banter. Fantastic chemistry. Doesn’t hurt that they’re nice to look at it either. Powerhouse tag team that I only thought was possible through my weird dreams has now become a recurring reality. Ryan likey.

Breaking Bad Finally Wins Best Drama

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press Room

It’s weird seeing the cast of Breaking Bad with smiles on their faces, but if there were ever a time to smile, it was last night. The show had been nominated three times before in the Best Drama category, but the Golden statue had always eluded Vince Gilligan and company. Last night, all that changed, and how surreal it was to watch Hank and Jesse and Mike and Walter hug it out for the whole world to see. Well deserved is an understatement, as the writing, directing and acting on this show has been superb for 5 years now. These past 8 episodes (the finale airing next Sunday) have been among the shows best, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the cast share the stage one last time at the Emmys next September.

Bill Hader Nominated For Best Supporting Actor Emmy After His Final Season On SNL

What a joyous day. Hader is my favorite cast member for a number of reasons, mainly because of his other wordly versatility. From his iconic Weekend Update character “Stefon” to his impressions of James Carville and Al Pacino, Hader always induced the laughs. He brought you to the edge of the proverbial cliff, and just when you thought you couldn’t laugh any harder, he put it in overdrive. It’s Hader’s second consecutive nomination, and he is still the first male SNL cast member to be nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Emmy since 1983 (Eddie Murphy). Although it’s sad to see him leave the show, it’s always great to see a super talented performer get the respect he deserves.
