  • Newbies recognized this year include Courteney Cox (Cougar Town), Thomas Jane (Hung), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) and .
  • Despite big buzz around Emmy time, Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons did not get any love this time around. Meanwhile, Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) was snubbed as well.

Video: TV Envy Interviews 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, 30 Rock, Features,


We were able to chat with ‘s (Jenna on the show) earlier today to talk about tonight’s 30 Rock season finale. Jane gives us a teaser on what to expect in the Season 3 finale, and also tells us what it’s like to work with so many world-class comedians on a day-to-day basis. We also go into some of her work on the Breyers Smooth and Dreamy promotion, where she has shot a couple of webisodes that put her into classical movies as a modern-day woman (and they’re pretty funny.)

Check out the video above for the interview, and head on over to the Smooth and Dreamy site to enter to win a very cool Dreamy Hollywood package, which includes an 8 day trip for 4 to Hollywood, CA. Once again, we thank Jane for taking some time to chat with us today!


Jimmy Fallon’s First Guests Unveiled

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Late Night, Talk Shows, NBC,

Jimmy KimmelYesterday’s Conan O’Brien finale (the New York version) officially kicked off the countdown for his successor’s premiere.

Beginning next month, a host of A-list celebrities will help launch Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. (NBC star), Donald Trump (NBC star), Drew Barrymore (his Fever Pitch costar) and Cameron Diaz (why??) are among the names slated for Week 1.

Unfortunately, the SNL vet has elected to get the ball rolling with one of the most difficult interviewees out there: Robert De Niro. (I strongly suggest Fallon dissect Brian Williams’ awkward attempt first.)

Late Night debuts @ 12:30 A.M. on March 2nd.

2009 Screen Actors Guild Awards

Screen Actors Guild Awards

Last January, the Screen Actors Guild Awards was considered a pleasant distraction from all the writers’ strike business. Since the actors now face their own work stoppage, this year’s event once again served as a nice diversion.

With the Academy Awards less than a month away, tonight’s ceremony gave us a better idea of how that broadcast might pan out. Was Kate Winslet another double-winner this evening? Did Mickey Rourke wrestle an additional victory? Is Heath Ledger on his way to that posthumous Oscar? Get all the details after the jump!

2009 Golden Globe Awards

Golden Globe

One year after a strike-induced absence, the drinking resumed. Although the drew its usual set of followers tonight, this year’s program carried even more significance than usual. The reason? Heath Ledger.

With or without the Dark Knight nomination, the ceremony would have been interesting. Was this going to be the year a film about an Indian game show (Slumdog Millionaire) won top prize? Would either Meryl Streep (Mamma Mia, Doubt) or Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road, The Reader) walk away with two awards? Could ‘s comeback performance in The Wrestler earn him a surprise win over Sean Penn (Milk)?

To find out the answer to these questions (and many more), you can read our detailed coverage after the jump!
