Andy Samberg To Host The 2015 Emmy Awards: Expect A 'Wild Ride'
Andy Samberg has been tapped to host the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards and there is once again a chance for an awards show to have real laughs instead of calculated chuckles.

The actor is set to host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards this year, it was announced Thursday.

“It’s wonderfully fitting that we have Andy Samberg, an Emmy Award winner himself, as our host for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards,” said Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Television Academy.

“Andy has excelled in all aspects of the television universe, both from behind and in front of the camera. His humor, insights ...

A Short History Of EGOT Winners

February 22nd, 2015 3:00pm EST
EGOT
February is both Oscar and Grammy time, which has us thinking about EGOT winners, i.e., entertainers who have won at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony in their careers. The term was coined by actor Philip Michael Thomas (Tubbs from “Miami Vice”) in an interview in “Vanity Fair,” when he stated his goal of winning all four awards (he has yet to be nominated for any of them). The concept was further popularized in recent years on “30 Rock,” in a storyline that saw Tracy Jordan achieve EGOT status over the course of Seasons 4 and 5.

The following is a handy guide to actual ’s are perh...

Sofia Vergara
Sofia Vergara was literally put on a pedestal during Monday night's 66th Emmy Awards, and naturally the world is freakng out about it.

The "Modern Family" star took the stage to introduce Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Bruce Rosenblum to give the yearly speech on the state of the industry, or as many see it, to bore viewers for five minutes, and to keep people from nodding off during his rambling, he asked Vergara to step up onto a pedestal that was next to him. As she did, it began rotating, showing off the actress' sexy curves and most likely distracting millions of viewers from t...

Sofia Vergara And 15 Of The Best Dressed Women At The 2014 Emmys

Sofia Vergara And 15 Of The Best Dressed Women At The 2014 Emmys
The 2014 Emmy Awards telecast on Monday night wasn't much to write home about, trudging along in mediocrity save for a few above average moments.

Even the fashion this year was so-so. Few stars stood out this year -- a stark contrast to Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards -- and, of course there were some bad dresses, but even the bad wasn't that bad (well, if you take Lena Dunham out of the equation).

Starting off with three women whose amazing curves were on display all night, Modern Family's Sofia Vergara, True Detective's Alexandra Daddario and Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, these 1...

Dancers dressed in outfits the likes of the ones on the show surrounded the singer as he pleaded for writer George R.R. Martin to hur...
