How did so many former Emmy hosts wind up on the same stage? Who was that strange guy side-stepping off screen behind host Neil Patrick Harris? What was cut from the show as it went into overtime? TV Guide Magazine sat down with 65th Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich backstage at the Nokia Theatre immediately after the show to get some background on this year's televised ceremony.
Catherine Zeta-Jones may not have accompanied her estranged husband Michael Douglas to the Emmy Awards on Sunday, but that's not to say she didn't walk a red carpet over the weekend.
Who'll win at this year's Emmys? Who knows? It's the only major awards show where the old guard and new blood clash on an annual basis, and among the few things you can bet on in this unpredictable process are that Michael Douglas will win for his Liberace impersonation (ditto his HBO movie Behind the Candelabra) and that host Neil Patrick Harris will do his damnedest to make CBS's live Emmys telecast (8/7c, 5 Pacific) as enjoyable as the Tonys.
HBO's Behind the Candelabra cleaned up at Sunday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, winning eight trophies at the ceremony.
Among the Liberace biopic's accolades in the Miniseries, Movie or Special genre were Outstanding Casting, Outstanding Costumes, Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup and Outstanding Sound Editing.
Elton John will perform at the 65th Emmy Awards later this month. The performance will pay tribute to Liberace, the subject of the HBO biopicBehind the Candelabra, which is nominated for 15 awards.
Liberace's former lover Scott Thorson was arrested after testing positive for meth, TMZ.com reports.
