Is everyone ready for TV’s most glamorous night? You know the stars are already getting primped and pampered and shoved into Spanx: Aren’t you glad you can enjoy the show from the comfort of your living room, watching in your jammies with a big bowl of ice cream?
That’s what I’ll be doing, as I live blog the whole shebang – from the red carpet arrivals to the very last award that’s handed out. Won’t you join me? I promise not to get too snarky…okay, well, maybe I won’t promise THAT. But I can promise to have fun: Isn’t that what awards shows are all about?
So come back here at 6 p.m., when I’ll tune into E!’s pre-show, then slide over to ABC’s red carpet coverage at 7 p.m., before the show kicks off at 8.
Meanwhile, here’s a reminder of the LoHud talent up for individual awards tonight. (Go, Max Greenfield, go!)
Edie Falco, “Nurse Jackie,” Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy. Falco, who graduated from Purchase College, was nominated for “Nurse Jackie” last year, too, after winning the award for the role in 2010. She’s also won three times in the drama category for her work on “The Sopranos.”
Merritt Wever, “Nurse Jackie,” Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy. A Sarah Lawrence College graduate who plays outgoing student nurse Zoey, this is Wever’s first Emmy nomination.
Max Greenfield, “New Girl,” Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy. This is also a first nomination for the Dobbs Ferry native, a consistent scene stealer as the germaphobic, lady-loving, politically incorrect Schmidt.
Julianna Margulies, “The Good Wife,” Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama. Born in Spring Valley and a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Margulies will see if she can repeat last year’s win for her role in the CBS drama.
Glenn Close, “Damages,” Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama. This is the fourth Emmy nod that the longtime Bedford resident has received for playing devious lawyer Patty Hewes. She’s already won twice for the role — in 2008 and 2009.
