Question: Are you going to the Emmy Awards? If so, what are your plans?

Answer: Am I going to the Emmy Awards? You really think I'd miss the biggest scoop-gathering opportunity TV event of the year? Truth be told, I did consider pulling a no-show to protest my snub in the guest actor in a drama category, but then I realized that a weekend in L.A. would give me the 6,000 frequent flyer miles I need to earn a free round-trip ticket to Europe wouldn't be fair to you guys. Bottom line: Yes, I'll be at the Emmys feverishly procuring prattle for next week's all-Emmy-themed Ask Ausiello. And afterwards, I'll head over to TV Guide's exclusive post-Emmy bash, where I (along with Dan Manu) will be interviewing tons of celebs the video from which will be available on the homepage Monday morning. And let me remind you that is the place to be for minute-by-minute coverage of the Emmys. In addition to a live Watercooler blog by Sabrina Rojas Weiss and Angel Cohn, we'll have an updated winners list, extensive photo galleries and exclusive video from the red carpet. We've so got this thing covered it's not even funny.

OK, I've got a plane to catch. If you wanna discuss this week's Ask Ausiello with fellow prattle addicts like yourself, click here and you'll be directed to the special AA thread in the Ausiello Report. (Good luck with that GG asterisk quiz.) And have fun watching the Emmys! Look for me in those background shots on the red carpet. I'll be the tuxedoed dude standing suspiciously close to Mariska Hargitay.
