"Congratulations guys, unbelievable" host Neil Patrick Harris said of seven-time Emmy champ Amazing Race at Sunday's 61st Primetime Emmy Awards. "Upsets at every turn."
Harris was joking about his loss in the supporting comedy actor category to Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer, but also ironically summing up the mood on a night when repeat winners ruled with just a few new faces sprinkled in.

Tina Fey, Jon Hamm
Tina Fey an Emmy presenter? You betcha.
The 30 Rock mastermind and multiple Emmy nominee will be among the presenters at Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced. Fey will head into the ceremony already a winner, having snatched up a comedy guest actress statuette at the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend for her impersonation of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.

Gaga walked the red carpet in a look that is equal parts Mad Hatter and dead crow (left): a floor-length, corseted Jean-Paul Gaultier gown, a stiff, feathered collar by Kiko of London and a flattened top hat.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff will have one last dance — and it's not on Dancing with the Stars.
Though they called off their engagement earlier this week, the exes are set to perform together at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 20, CBS announced. They will be part of a segment ...
It was a time for firsts at the 36th Daytime Emmy Awards: The Bold and the Beautiful won its first Outstanding Drama Series statuette in four tries, while the ladies of The View finally won talk show host after 12 nominations.
None of the ladies — Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd — made the trek to Los Angeles' Orpheum Theatre to collect their trophies. Their win prevented Ellen DeGeneres from achieving a five-peat in the category. DeGeneres also lost the talk show entertainment trophy for the second year in a row to Rachael Ray.
The Tyra Banks Show repeated ...
Forget Ellen and Tyra — Guiding Light and a bunch of Muppets are set to take center stage at Sunday's 36th Daytime Emmy Awards.
Hosted by Vanessa Williams, the show will honor two daytime staples during the broadcast — one of which is bidding farewell. Light, which ends its run on ...
