  • Episode Description
  • This year's Emmy nominees were selected under a new set of rules, which were enacted to prevent a predictable glut of fan favorites and hit series and give underrated but deserving contenders a fair chance. But did the change really work? Shows like Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars were still left off the list, and several nominations were given to shows that are no longer on the air! Another bug surprise was that such TV hits like Lost & Desperate Housewives were not nominated which disappointed fans. With returning host Conan O'Brien, it's sure to be an exciting evening, no matter what happens, so be sure to tune in! (Click here to see List of Nominees and Winners.)moreless

  • A great job done by Conan O'Brien as host, moving tributes to both Dick Clark and the late Aaron Spelling, great gowns and beautiful people, made this a total viewing pleasure all the way around.

    • There was much controversy of the parody skit of Lost at the beginning which involved host Conan O'Brien on a plane which crashes. Earlier that week a place crash occurred in the USA and this skit was thought to be offensive.
