Emmy Goldberg, the mascot for the Emmys, harnesses nuclear fusion to keep the award in place.

Finally! The night that Kathy Bates has been waiting for! Yes it's the Emmys, television's attempt at keeping the tuxedo-rental industry alive. Jimmy Kimmel is hosting this year's gathering of television's greatest luminaries and Jon Cryer, where all the focus is on one thing: making sure Modern Family and Mad Men don't hog all the awards, because c'mon guys! Save some for all the charming Brits nominated!

I'll be updating the winners live right here, and who knows, maybe I'll even add some commentary if the mood strikes. Be sure to share your well-spoken, intelligent thoughts in the comments section below, and don't forget: we're live-tweeting the shebang, too.
