Red Carpet

  • Make the Emmys ‘one-and-done’
    There was something embarrassing about the rash of repeat treating on Monday’s Emmycast. It might have left viewers wondering if they had stumbled on a rerun of last year’s show, or the one before that.
  • Not a good night for movies stars at Emmys
    The Emmys welcomed plenty of movie stars to television’s biggest awards show, including Julia Roberts, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Spacey, Mark Ruffalo and the reigning Oscar winner for best actor, Matthew McConaughey.
  • Reds, blues dominate red carpet at Emmys
    Lena Dunham showed up for the Emmys in an awkward pink confection and Kerry Washington went for a bright orange dress with dark sparkle peeking out from underneath, but it was the reds and blues that dominated the carpet Monday.

‘I’m an actor’

At the first ceremony in 1995, Angela Lansbury opened the evening talking about the craft of acting. That started a tradition that evolved from a single anecdote to multiple people giving thoughts on acting, each brief speech ending with the performer giving their name and saying “I’m an actor.”

The identities of the storytellers each year are kept secret until they appear on camera. Seventy-four performers have delivered their stories in the 19 years of the SAG Awards.
