Hello Everyone! Welcome to the hottest live-blog out there for tonight's 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards! I will be getting things started shortly here, but in the meantime, I want to hear from you. Drop me a line in the comments on your favorite looks from the red carpet and who you think will come away with an Emmy tonight.

And Awaaaaayyyyy We Go!

We start with the beautiful Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling and a few other ladies are in restroom practicing their glamour faces! There's so many stars in this one y'all. LOVE seeing the phenomenal Kathy Bates put her fist through the door and help a crying Jimmy Kimmel. Jimmy seems to be having a few Botox issues. It's pretty funny. Jimmy isn't sure he can go on with the Emmys and a few men who were all in the running to host pop up and say they can do it.

Kathy and company agree to punch Jimmy's face back in place for him. After, Julia Louis-Dreyfus gets a few hits in and Jimmy is ready. At least, we thought he was. It seems Jimmy forgot his pants. Ellen Degeneres shows up with some pants to save the day.

We head to a few shots from the red carpet and Tina Fey looks FABOOSH!

Well here comes the opening monologue from Jimmy Kimmel. Let's hope he can be funny. He cracks a Here Comes Honey Boo Boo joke and I feel like you can't go wrong there. The jokes pretty much write themselves on that hot mess. Jimmy compares Downton Abbey to Mitt Romney's upbringing. It was pretty funny. Now, Jimmy's going into politics. This could be good or bad. It wasn't too painful. He moves on from that to Lena Dunham and HBO. He touches on Luck, the horse drama, being cancelled so quickly.

"If you're going to the HBO after party, don't eat the sliders."- Jimmy Kimmel.

Jimmy cracked a joke on Steve Buscemi and he did NOT look amused! Classic. Jimmy's done and now it's time for Comedy.

Amy Pohler and Louie C.K. are out to present the first award of the evening. Amy starts by saying the first presenters set the tone of the evening. Louie isn't listening at all and Amy shuts him down, like they should his show. Yeah, I said it. They present

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To...

ERIC STONESTREET for MODERN FAMILY

I'm not too surprised on this one, folks. I was expecting Modern Family to dominate. He thanks Jesse Tyler Ferguson for being his other half on the show. He loves the pictures of hairy chests he keeps getting. LOL!

We return from commercial with a shot from the production control room. Shout out to the production crew for putting on this show.

Zooey Deschanel and Jim Parsons are next to present an award. I want to give Zooey a magic wand and call her the blue fairy. Her boobs are also SCREAMING in this dress. They Present

OUTSTANDING WRITING FOR A COMEDY SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To...

LOUIE C.K. for LOUIE

He thanks the usuals for winning the award. He looks a little out of it.

Jimmy does a skit about The Andy Griffith Show, but if it would be Breaking Bad. At the end, the person on the boat gets shot. I liked it.

Kat Dennings and Dukie er....I mean Jon Cryer present

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To...

JULIE BOWEN for MODERN FAMILY

Julie says that her win is an embarrassment of riches. I like that. She thanks everyone she can think of, including the people who make her nipple covers. I'm not sure how I feel about her lime green dress.

The band is jamming a little Flashlight by Parliment Funkadelic. Get the Soul Train line started!! The Emmys are ready for that!

Matthew Perry is out give kudos to awards everyone already knows who won. Great...Not Really. Matthew is pretty painful in this one. Guess Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series! The repsective winners were Jimmy Fallon and the WONDERFUL Kathy Bates. The two come out and present....

OUTSTANDING DIRECTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES

I'm not sure how I feel about every one giving their feelings on what it takes to make "insert category" great.

And the Emmy Goes To...

STEVEN LEVITAN for MODERN FAMILY

"First of all, I wanna thank me for hiring me as a director when no one else would. I wouldn't be standing here without my faith in me"- Steve Levitan.

That's how you do an acceptance speech for a comedy category. It's completely something I would do. Love it! He stops being silly for a second and thanks everyone who assists him on Modern Family. So far, that's my favorite speech of the night.

We see the cast of Modern Family in a video package singing praises of being a real family. Aubrey Anderson Emmons, who is the adorable little girl that plays Lily, wants to know what everyone is doing there because it can't be a table read. She goes on to verbally and physiclly DESTROY the rest of the cast. Amazing!

JImmy thinks the video would be a great thing for adoption. He presents Mindy Kaling and Melissa McCarthy.

Melissa is killing me saying dirty things about Alec Baldwin, Jon Cryer, Louie C.K., Don Cheadle and even Larry David. She is SO FUNNY!

The two present....

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To...

JON CRYER for TWO AND A HALF MEN

I really haven't been surprised by any of the wins in the comedy category, except this one.  I loved Pretty in Pink, so Jon will ALWAYS be "Duckie" to me! Jon can't believe he won! He thanks the usual suspects and leaves the stage.

Stephen Colbert has graced the stage. He presents....

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES

Stephen says he wants to talk about the War on Women before presenting the award. He thinks women are great, except a few that are terrible. He gives an example of 5 women in the category being great, but the other two....not so much.

And the Emmy Goes To...

JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS for Veep

Julia just added Emmy number 3 to her collection. I really like her dress. It's a great color on her. Amy Pohler looks as SALTY as she can be. Oh wait, it seems she switched her speech with Julia's. The ladies in this category always do something funny like that for the category. Good acting. Julia thanks everybody she has ever met for the award. They're playing the music on her.

We have slipped into a reality television video coma. Well, at least I did.

Dawson...er I mean James Van Der Beek and Damon Wayans Jr. (who looks just like his father) are out to present....

OUTSTANDING REALITY COMPETITION PROGRAM

Damon gives us an update on the Patriots game.

And the Emmy Goes To...

THE AMAZING RACE

I completely forgot this show still came on. Oops, bad blogger.

We return from commercial with a little video treat from the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon expresses his dislike for the Emmys, but like for the accountants. He introduces the CPA's on stage and loves them all. Good way to intro the CPA's in a way that we'll actually pay attention.

Seth MacFarlane steps on stage and begins his monologue. However, he's in the wrong spot and we can hear him. He redeems himself by busting out a Stewie impression. He is SLAYING in this one. He should have hosted, but I know they would never let him do it. He presents....

OUTSTANDING REALITY HOST

And the Emmy Goes To...

TOM BERGERON for DANCING WITH THE STARS

I wanted Betty White to win this one for the sole purpose of hearing her speech. I know it would have been HIGHlarious! Tom thanks a few people and Jeff Probst for not being nominated. You and Me Both Tom!

FINALLY! It's time for my personal favorite part of the broadcast, Drama. We see a nice video package from the past year in drama!

Claire Danes graces us in yellow this evening. She's hiding her cute baby bump. Show it off girl! She presents...

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To....

AARON PAUL for BREAKING BAD

Wow! I wasn't exactly expecting this one. I thought Peter Dinklage had it for Game of Thrones. He was AWESOME in the penultimate episode. Aaron is completely shocked! He thanks the writers for not killing him off. Awesome!

Jimmy Kimmel needs a little help with a prank he wants to pull on everyone not watching the Emmys. Tracy Morgan volunteers. Jimmy wants everyone to Facebook or Twitter that Tracy has passed out at the awards. Tracy proceeds to lie on the ground.

Connie Britton and Hayden Panettierre are out looking quite fabulous. Hayden especially! Her dress is divine! They present...

Awwww Maggie isn't there. Kudos to her because she is AMAZING in that show and in general.

The two present the award for

OUTSTANDING DIRECTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To...

TIM VAN PATTEN for BOARDWALK EMPIRE

As it should be, folks. Boardwalk Empire is absolutely beautifully directed. An amazing show.

We've come to the saddest part of the show, In Memoriam. However, it's not what we think. Josh Groban is out singing that One Direction song about being beautiful, to a montage FULL of Jimmy Kimmel.  I think that's a little far for me. I'm from the South, we don't joke about the dead at all.

Julianna Margulies comes and looks AWESOME! She presents...

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To...

DAMIAN LEWIS for HOMELAND

Shocker here folks! He says he's one of those pesky Brits that actually showed up! Burn! He thanks the usuals and makes a cute joke about his kids thinking he was nominated for an Emma!

"Daddy, won an Emma!"- Damian Lewis

Jimmy's back and wants to know if anyone would be willing to trade an Emmy for a hotpocket. Not funny. He's disappointing me after a promising start.

Tina Fey and Jon Hamm are on stage. Jon's saying his lines and Tina is making hers up! Her is excuse is that she forgot her glasses. It's pretty hilarious! For the record, he dress is FAB.U.LOUS. The two present

OUTSTANDING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To...

CLARIE DANES for HOMELAND

This one is a bit of a surprise for me folks. I thought Kathy or Julianna had this one. I'm not complaining, though. Claire is a fantastic actress.

"Mandy Patinkin. Hooollllaaaa!"-Claire Danes

It's time for the Varitety program segment of the show.

Aziz Ansari and Jane Levy are out to present

Aziz tries to be funny, but falls pretty flat for me.

OUTSTANDING WRITING IN A VARIETY SERIES

And the Emmy Goes To....

LOUIE C.K. for LOUIE C.K. LIVE A THE BEACON THEATRE

Personally, this guy just doesn't make me laugh. However, it clearly doesn't matter what I think. Congrats to him!

Ricky Gervais makes a crack about the Golden Globes. He cracks another joke about the academy flying him out for the big one....

THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon try to take Jon out. It's pretty funny. Run Jon Run!! Jon says his crew was told they would get a free sandwich after 10. Jon gives it up to the other nominees in the category. Jon reflects on his show and it's content. He also drops the first F bomb of the night. I knew it had to be coming soon!

Jimmy Kimmel introduces his mother and father in the crowd. He points out his Dad's resemblance to Wolf Blitzer. Now, he's fronting them on things they told him would work out and didn't. Tracy Morgan chimes in on the issue. Jimmy has them removed by security from the show.

"Feel free to tase them, bro!"- Jimmy Kimmel

Okay, that one was kind of funny. Wrong, but funny.

We take a look a the past year in Miniseries and Movies.

Steve Buscemi appears on stage looking quite dapper. He cheers on his shows director. He presents...

And the Emmy Goes To..

JESSICA LANGE for AMERICAN HORROR STORY

I'm not surprised here folks. She is ALL KINDS of fantastic in that show. She's wearing a sleek red gown for tonight. I approve. Jessica says Ryan Murphy made her more promises than any man ever has, and they all came true. She gives a nice speech.

Ellen Degeneres and The President of the Academy Bruce Rosenblum grace our screens. Ellen is not wearing pants and I’m a little shocked. Bruce asks Ellen what happened to her pants. She says Jimmy has them keeping up with the skit from the beginning on the show. Bruce is the main one speaking and Ellen chimes in with every last word he says.

JImmy introduces Kerry Washington. Is it just me or is she looking a little extra thin. I'm not a big fan of her dress either. She presents

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A MINISERIES OR MOVIE

And the Emmy Goes To...

TOM BERENGER for HATFIELDS AND MCCOYS

I was pretty impressed with Hatfields and McCoys. I'm a not a big fan of the genre, but I had to watch it. Berenger did a fantastic job in the miniseries. Berenger tries to give his thanks yous, but is rushed off by the music. He looked pretty annoyed when the music played.

Ron Howard comes out to give us a heartfelt speech about Andy Griffith. Ron also introduces the actual In Memorian segment. Rest In Peace to all those we lost this past year.

My goodness we lost a lot of people this past year. So sad.

JULIANNE MOORE for GAME CHANGE

Give it up for the Soap Opera Alumni! As the World Turns baby! Oh, Julianne that dress. You look like a big banana up there. Julianne starts by sticking it to Sarah Palin who did not like her performance. That's the way to show her Julianne! Anywho, she gives a great smiley speech. I'm excited for you too, boo!

Jon Stewart is running around with a bottle of water and a banana. I'm not quite sure why.

Ginnifer Goodwin and Emily VanCamp are both looking great tonight. I really like Ginny's look. They present

KEVIN COSTNER for HATFIELDS AND MCCOYS

In my opinion, he deserved this one. He blew me away in Hatfields and Mccoys. It was like his big comeback! Kevin is the first man I've seen without a tie tonight. I don't blame you, Kev.

Andre Broward is out to present....

Holy Shocker Batman!!! Upset of the NIght! I thought Mad Men was going to take it away again, but not this year! I was hoping Boardwalk Empire or Game of Thrones  would pick this one up! However, Homeland is a good show as well. Congrats to them. The showrunner gives the speech!

Michael J. Fox graces my screen. He's always been one of my favorite actors! The crowd gives Michael a standing ovation! The way it should be people! He presents...

I'm not surprised. Modern Family is another show that cleaned house tonight! I'm getting too sick of the music interrupting people's speeches. LET. THEM. SPEAK.

Goodnight everybody!
