Poll: Will Tracy Morgan win Emmy for hosting 'Saturday Night Live'?

18 August 2015 2:42 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Tracy Morgan is set to make an emotional comeback to "Saturday Night Live" on Oct. 17. He was just announced as the host of the third episode of this late night staple's 41st season. This will be his first appearance since nearly losing his life in a six-vehicle highway crash in June, 2014.  -Break- Morgan was part of the cast for seven years, beginning in 1996. While his own self-titled show lasted for less than a season on NBC in 2004, he had huge success as part of Tina Fey's "30 Rock." That sly satire on the making of a TV variety show starring Morgan's character won three consecutive Emmys for Best Comedy Series (2007 - 2009). Morgan lost his only Emmy bid -- Best Comedy Supporting Actor -- to Jon Cryer ("Two and a Half Men") in 2009. Earlier that year, he had returned to "SNL" to host the show and reprise some of his most famous characters. »

Jon Cryer Remembers Alex Rocco: ‘A Deeply Good-Hearted Guy’

19 July 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the heels of his breakout role in “Pretty in Pink,” Jon Cryer landed his first sitcom — the inside-showbiz CBS comedy “The Famous Teddy Z” that co-starred Alex Rocco.

Rocco, who died Saturday at the age of 79, cited “Teddy Z” as the “most fun” he ever had in his long career, according to Rocco’s family. Rocco played stressed-out talent agent Al Floss, who clashed with the agency’s mailroom wunderkind Teddy Zakalokis, played by Cryer.

“Teddy Z” only lasted one season in 1989-90 — its final five episodes never saw the light of day until Comedy Central ran the entire series in 1993. But Rocco earned an Emmy for his performance, and made a lifelong friend of Cryer.

On Sunday, Cryer remembered his co-star as “an actor possessed of enormous gifts” with a big heart and infectious spirit.

“I had seen a report of his passing on social media and spent »

Can six-time Emmy loser Jeffrey Tambor ('Transparent') take down four-time champ Jim Parsons ('Big Bang')?

8 July 2015 12:44 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Poor Jeffrey Tambor. He's been nominated six different times at the Emmys (see photo gallery below), but has so far come up empty-handed. Will this one-time featured player finally enter the Emmy winner's circle this year for his buzzed-about leading role on Amazon's "Transparent"? Gold Derby's Experts, Editors, Top 24 Users and All Users are in agreement: Get your Emmy speech ready, Jeffrey! -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders But for Tambor to win, that means four-time champ Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") must lose Best Comedy Actor for the first time since 2012. That was when rival CBS sitcom star Jon Cryer ("Two and a Half Men") pulled off a jaw-dropper. Voters may feel the need to move on to someone new this year.
