65th Emmy Awards

The 65th Emmys is now over but check out the blog below we updated every few minutes during today’s Emmy Awards.

In a little over an hour the 65th Emmy Awards get under way hosted by Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother. He did an absolutely awesome job hosting the last Tony Awards so I can’t wait to see how he goes hosting the Emmys. I’ll be updating this blog throughout the Emmys so this is the place to hear all about the Emmys.

For those that were expecting a musical number to begin the Emmys, were, like me, were wrong. It was however a fun beginning with bit by host Neil Patrick Harris and past hosts including Conan OBrien and a hilarious bit by House Of Cards star Kevin Spacey.
