Billy Crystals moving tribute to Robin Williams at the EmmysEmmy Awards: full list of winners

11.07pm Et

A Quick Summary: Breaking Bad won just about everything and everyone cheered. So did Modern Family and everyone grumbled. British people won a whole bunch of awards too for Sherlock and stuff. Barely any of them showed up to get their trophies. Maybe theyre mad that we call it soccer? I dont know. Seth Meyers kinda sucked, Sofia Vergara was turned into a prop, everyone is white and male, and nothing every changes and the Emmys is awful. In other news, the Oscars is only six months away.

Thanks for joining us and goodnight!

25 August 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The 2014 Emmys took a moment on Monday night to remember the late Robin Williams, who passed away Aug. 11.

Following the traditional In Memoriam segment (which was accompanied by a sublime “Smile” cover from Sara Bareilles), Williams’ longtime friend and colleague Billy Crystal took the stage to eulogize the actor-comedian.

“He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him,” Crystal remembered. “The brilliance was astounding, the relentless energy was kind of thrilling.”

Never again, TV Academy.  Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated.  Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »

The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

18 August 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!

In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

2014 Creative Arts Emmy Winners include 'Sex,' 'Scandal' co-stars

16 August 2014 8:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.  The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.

Craig Ferguson in Final Negotiations With Tribune for 7 p.m. Syndicated Talkshow (Exclusive)

15 August 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Craig Ferguson is in final negotiations with Tribune Media to host a daily syndicated half-hour talkshow that would air in the 7 p.m. hour across Tribune Broadcasting’s 42 stations.

The show is targeted to bow in fall 2015. It’s expected that Michael Naidus, exec producer of CBS’ “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson,” will be on board as showrunner of the show, which will blend comedy and talkshow elements. The intent is to rev up the hour leading into primetime with the Ferguson yakker paired at 7:30 p.m. with a prime sitcom rerun, a la “Two and a Half Men” or “The Big Bang Theory.”

Reps for Tribune Media and Ferguson declined to comment.

Tribune is in talks with distributors to handle national distribution of the show beyond its stations, which reach some 42% of U.S. TV households and cover key top markets including New York (Wpix), L. »

Watch The Trailer For Glen Campbell I’LL Be Me – In Theaters October 24

14 August 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The trailer for upcoming documentary Glen Campbell I’LL Be Me has finally been released and it doesn’t disappoint. This is a must-see for any Glen Campbell fan, as it humorously and heartbreakingly follows the Rhinestone Cowboy on his final concert tour after being diagnosed with advanced alzheimers disease.

I was fortunate enough to see this film at the Topanga Film Festival and there was not a dry eye in the house. To see fans rally around this man who has given so much of his talent and musical genius for so many years is beautifully moving.

Set for an Oct. 24, 2014 release date (opens in theaters in New York and Nashville on October 24, followed by a nationwide release to more than 50 cities,) I wouldn’t be surprised if I’LL Be Me quietly picks up a documentary feature nomination come Oscar time.

Best of Late Night TV: Robin Williams Talk Show Highlights and Tributes, 'House of Cue Cards' (Video)

12 August 2014 11:53 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Even though the late night talk shows air (appropriately enough) late at night, some of the Monday shows were already taped by the time the news of Robin Williams' death came out, so a few hosts chose the Tuesday, August 12 show to pay tribute. (David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel are on a break and didn't have new shows last night.) Here are tributes from Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, and (again) Conan O'Brien. Conan was really the only one to address Robin's death on Monday night, but he and Andy Richter also sat down Tuesday to share Robin memories. Conan said Robin was "the best talk show guest in the world, »

Robin Williams: ‘Comedy Cyclone’ Burst Out of 1970s L.A. Club Scene

12 August 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robin Williams honed his zany, rapid-fire comedic persona in the hothouse environment of Los Angeles comedy clubs in the mid- to late-1970s.

Even in an scene that nurtured such notables as David Letterman, Andy Kaufman, Jay Leno, Richard Lewis, Sam Kinison, Elayne Boosler, Tom Dreesen and George Miller, Williams’ unique style made a huge impression. From the start, Williams was endowed with the incredible ad-lib and improv skills that friends and fans have hailed as comic genius since his death Monday of suicide at age 63.

“He seemed to be omnipresent back then and was a topic of discussion wherever he went,” said author-humorist Merrill Markoe. He was a tough act for other comedians to follow — akin to a “comedy cylone,” she added. “In his act, he was id, ego and super-ego all at the same time.”

Off stage, there was a gentleness to Williams that was always quite the contrast to his hyper-kinetic performances. »

Robin Williams: Fears of a Clown

11 August 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This story was originally published in the February 21st, 1991 issue of Rolling Stone.

Mr. and Mrs. Robin Williams are slow dancing. The time: a winter afternoon. The place: a photographer's studio in the Chelsea section of New York. The music: high-decibel funk. Everybody else in the studio is abuzz — adjusting lights, fussing with props, running back and forth from the kitchen with sushi. Still, Williams and his wife, Marsha, keep coming together in these quick, sweet tableaux. It's strange to see the thirty-nine-year-old actor and comedian with his guard down »

Hollywood ‘Stunned,’ ‘Heartbroken’ Over Robin Williams’ Death

11 August 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The shock of Robin Williams’ death spread far and wide on Monday, a reflection of the actor’s long career in movies, television, stage and standup comedy.

Tributes came in from friends and colleagues, studios and executives, the directors of his many movies, fellow comics and even President Obama. Those who knew and worked with him described Williams as a comic genius with a generous heart.

Steven Spielberg called him “a pal” and expressed shock at Williams’ death of an apparent suicide at the age of 63. Williams starred as Peter opposite Dustin Hoffman’s Captain Hook in Spielberg’s 1991 movie “Hook,” and he had a voice role in the director’s 2001 feature “A.I.: Artificial Intelligence.”

“Robin was a lightning storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him. He was a pal and I can’t believe he’s gone,” Spielberg said.

ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ Rises in July, Routs Letterman in Demo

7 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC’s Jimmy Fallon remains the dominant latenight talkshow, but that hasn’t keep ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel from notching some ratings achievements of his own. And both seem to be gaining at the expense of CBS’ David Letterman, who has lost whatever momentum he had after announcing his 2015 retirement.

For the July sweep, despite facing a stronger Fallon, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” posted gains over last year in both adults 18-49 (up 10% to 729,000) and total viewers (up 12% to 2.293 million). This is the third straight year that the ABC show has posted July growth in both categories.

It’s not surprising that Kimmel has gained total viewers vs. last year, as some of the older fans of Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show” on NBC have drifted over to either Kimmel or Letterman. But the gains in 18-49 are a good sign that’s he’s connecting with more viewers in his target demo. »
