Welcome to our 2010 Emmy Live Blog with Paste editor-in-chief Josh Jackson and publisher Nick Purdy. Join us in the comments section below or tweeting to @joshjackson. See our 2010 Emmy Predictions, Picks & Snubs.

@joshjackson: Thanks for sticking with us, y’all. As Jimmy Fallon says, “Afterparty at Betty White’s house!!!!”

@nickpaste: Fallon wastes half a bottle of Vueve Cliquot to celebrate being able to go drink a bunch more of it. Mostly, I’ll say there’s a lot of good TV shows right now.

@nickpaste: Modern Family whacking 30 Rock ends the night with a big upset. @JoshJackson was right when he viewed the screener about a year ago!

Outstanding Comedy Series
Curb Your Enthusiasm  • HBO
Glee • FOX
 Modern Family • ABC
Nurse Jackie • Showtime
The Office • NBC
30 Rock • NBC

Who Won: Modern Family 
Who We Wanted: Modern Family 
Who We Predicted: Glee
Who Got Snubbed: Community and Party Down

@joshjackson: I have hope that Modern Family will get its due after the best first season for a sitcom in a while. But a strong season from Community and the too-short-lived Party Down should both be in the discussion above The Office.

From Twitter @NoelMu: I hope Jack Kevorkian and Temple Grandin will dance together at the after-party.

From Twitter @hodgman: @jimmyfallon did NOT know that @tomselleck was wearing the same tux. I hope @tomselleck has a twitter acct.

@carybrothers: tom selleck’s moustache is still the most powerful thing on network

@nickpaste: I HATE it when a winner makes references to having already won on the same night. I don’t know how it can be done without seeming smug.

Outstanding Drama Series
Breaking Bad • AMC
Dexter • Showtime
The Good Wife • CBS
Lost • ABC
 Mad Men • AMC
True Blood • HBO

Who Won: Mad Men 
Who We Wanted: Mad Men 
Who We Predicted: Mad Men 
Who Got Snubbed: Treme 

@joshjackson: Best Drama Series is a tough call with four worthy contenders in Breaking Bad, Dexter, Lost and Mad Men. I’d love to see Lost get a second trophy for its final season.

@nickpaste: OH LAWD did Sellek use a black Sharpie on his mustache?

@nickpaste: Temple Grandin: Emmy bait. (apparently)

Temple Grandin Wins Best TV Movie (Temple herself takes the stage).

@nickpaste: Have thought for a long time that Tom Hanks embodies the class of old Hollywood. Still do.

The Pacific wins Best Miniseries (Tom Hanks accepts).

From Twitter PFTompkins: Al Pacino’s weirdness and that constantly shifting background are combining to freak me OUT man

From Twitter @hodgman: I had a note from on high to play it straight with Pacino. I wish you could have heard my Barry Levinson material.

@nickpaste: Yep, not a note of music while Mr. Pacino spoke.

@joshjackson: To be fair, they didn’t.

@nickpaste: Play Al Pacino off? Um no you don’t.

@joshjackson: The Emmy trophy is for the summer cabin or the guest house. The Oscars stay at home.

@nickpaste: Al Pacino winning an Emmy seems too easy.

Al Pacino  wins Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie (You Don’t Know Jack).

@nickpaste: for anyone looking to save some time, here you go.

@nickpaste: Here’s a prediction: Temple Grandin being added to Netflix queues like crazy right about now.

Mick Jackson wins Best Directing for Miniseries of Movie (Temple Grandin)

From Twitter @whitechristine: Glad to know Kate Gosselin arriving at the Emmys is breaking news, CNN. #fail


From Twitter @EWDocJensen: FYI, in the Sideways world, the Emmys are unfolding much differently. Fringe is sweeping everything.

@joshjackson: My favorite Claire Danes miniseries is still My So-Called Life.

Claire Danes  wins Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie. (Temple Grandin)

From Twitter @scottEweinberg: There’s an Emmy category for best reality series host? That’s like the Academy giving out an award for best movie theater usher.

@nickpaste: Blair Underwood has that “I’ll be in a TV show ALWAYS mix of talent & enough-people-love-him charisma, apparently.

Adam Mazer wins Best Writing for a Miniseries or Movie (You Don’t Know Jack).

From Twitter @aimeemann: Who would want to be a clown? EVERYONE hates clowns! // David Straithairn went to clown school. (Explains his sober demeanor.)

From Twitter @carybrothers: only jewel’s bizarro vocal stylings could make me laugh out loud during the “dead people” segment on the emmys. RIP merlin olsen, by the way

@joshjackson: Hmmm… taking advantage of Jimmy Dean’s death in memorium with a cheesy Jimmy Dean Sausage commercial?

From Twitter @sportsguy33: David L. Wolper gets the hammer!?!?!?!? That was like the 1999 Rams winning the Super Bowl at 200-1 odds. I’m stunned.

@joshjackson: Hmmm…David L. Wolper, producer of Roots as the Death Hammer? Bea and Farrah must be coming later? #emmys

@joshjackson: R.I.P. Gumby.

@nickpaste: And by the way, Claire Danes wins. She looked the very definition of amazing in that dress. Jewel’s teeth: all squared away.

David Strathairn wins Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries.

From Twitter @TheDailyShow: Congratulations to The Daily Show on the Best F#@king Emmy Win Ever!

@nickpaste: Bea Arthur wins sort of b/c of the Year of Betty White. Part of Betty’s aurora.

From Twitter @TheWrap: With 8th win and “Amazing Race”s’ loss, “Daily Show now has longest consecutive Emmy winning streak

@joshjackson: Yeah, my money’s on Bea. But I like the odds on Hopper.

From Twitter @sportsguy33: Death montage hammer odds: Bea Arthur (even), Farrah Fawcett (2-1), Gary Coleman (5-1), Dennis Hopper (5-1). I’m taking Bea.

@nickpaste: Oh man, i’m not sure i can handle the word “courage” when talking about acting. Oh, I get it , but c’mon!

@joshjackson: Man, I love Julia Ormand and her “emanated for a Nommy.” She’s a great advocate for victims of human trafficking.

Julia Ormond wins Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries.

@joshjackson: Wow John Krasinski had one line to remember and blew it.

@joshjackson: That’s a helluva great bunch of actors in those nominated mini-series, though.

@nickpaste: Only people that saw all the Movie/Miniseries nominees? SOME of the voters

@joshjackson: No predictions for miniseries. The Pacific is the only one I saw. It was as good as you’d expect.

@nickpaste: Clooney for me gets a few points for humility. He’s so the boss, but plays it off enough to not seem ass-ish.

From Twitter @jamesrocchi: Not watching the Emmys, but I will recreate the experience by patting my self on the back until I puke.

@joshjackson: George Clooney wins Bob Hope Humanitarian Award. Well deserved. Is there a more likable guy in Hollywood?

@joshjackson: Very few sports events are prime time.

@nickpaste: Where are the sports categories? Best play-by-play, best production, best analyst, best studio show (which would probably be College Gameday by the way).

@joshjackson: By the way, even though we’re watching on TV, the gifting suite reached our offices this week with Oriental place settings and frozen PF Chang’s home meals (complete with dry ice). The tech team had fun with the dry ice.

@nickpaste: What does it mean, culturally, that the Emmys now makes fun of itself in real time?

Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series
The Colbert Report  • Comedy Central
 The Daily Show With Jon Stewart • Comedy Central
Real Time With Bill Maher • HBO 
Saturday Night Live • NBC
The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien • NBC

Who Won: Jon Stewart 
Who We Wanted: The Colbert Report 
Who We Predicted: The Daily Show 
Who Got Snubbed: The Tonight Show (just kidding)

@joshjackson: Jon Stewart’s seven-year Emmy-winning run isn’t likely to end, and we’re not likely to complain. It’s hard to dethrone the King of Satire but Stephen Colbert would be the man to do it unless Emmy voters are all part of Team Coco. Conan would definitely have the best acceptance speech since the show is on NBC.

@joshjackson: Vancouver Olympics just won a trophy, but only because Beijing Olympics weren’t eligible.

@nickpaste: Gervais sorta not fair. Has to keep himself from totally taking over.

From Twitter @sportsguy33: Can someone tell Kevin Bacon that he already filmed the child molester movie and he can go back to looking like Kevin Bacon?

@nickpaste: Ricky Gervais sort of owns the “leave ‘em wanting more” category right now, doesn’t he? He seems woefully underutilized/exposed. I’d watch him do anything.

From Twitter @nathanfillion: Wow. All done at Emmys. It was an honor just to be nominated. Oh. Wait. Rats

@joshjackson: Yeah, but I wouldn’t have guessed Billie Joe.

@nickpaste: Fallon’s shapeshifting is working well enough. LOST had to be the finale of these three.

@joshjackson: Can’t complain about that.

@nickpaste: Hey finally a Dexter Emmy. You have to give props for a “good guy” serial killer.

Who We Wanted: John Lithgow
Who We Predicted: John Lithgow

From Twitter @hodgman (who’s Tweeting while announcing): Re Lithgow, @bendougan says that anyone who gets wrapped in cellophane naked on a table deserves the Emmy.

@nickpaste: So Breaking Bad and Glee both double winners so far. Could they be more different? Proof of TV’s vitality?

@nickpaste: This category is like all the top guys. Good for Cranston I think. Third in a row – that’s juggernaut-ish. Jon Hamm – robbed? As Cranston said. Michael C. Hall could kill him and NOBODY WOULD KNOW!

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series
Breaking Bad • AMC • Bryan Cranston as Walter White
Dexter • Showtime • Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan

House • FOX • Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House
Lost • ABC • Matthew Fox as Jack Shephard

Who Will Win: Elisabeth Moss 
Who Got Snubbed: Rutina Wesley for True Blood, Carrie Preston for True Blood, Jennifer Carpenter for Dexter

@joshjackson: OK, can we all call BS on these VW commercials. It’s “punch buggy,” not “punch any VW.” They can’t just make it true because they say so.

@joshjackson: I’m looking forward to watching from the beginning. I’ve been saving that series like a good wine.

@nickpaste: REALLY agreed with you and thought Slattery in a walk on this. I’ve seen only a little Breaking Bad though.

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series
Breaking Bad • AMC • Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman
Damages • FX Networks • Martin Short as Leonard Winstone
Lost • ABC • Terry O’Quinn as John Locke
Lost • ABC • Michael Emerson as Ben Linus

Who We Predicted: John Slattery 
Who Got Snubbed: Steve Zahn for Treme, Wendell Pierce for Treme, John Goodman for Treme, Vincent Kartheiser for Mad Men

@joshjackson: Emerson won last year, but O’Quinn may split the Lost-y vote. But where the hell is the amazing cast from Treme?

The Good Wife • Pilot • CBS
Lost • The End • ABC
Mad Men • Guy Walks Into An Advertising Agency • AMC
 Mad Men • Shut The Door. Have A Seat. • AMC

@joshjackson: I’m with you there.

@nickpaste: Confession to anyone watching: I have NEVER watched any version of CSI, Law & Order, etc. Procedurals kill me. ER drove me away.

@nickpaste: Yeah. My Dexter season largely spoiled

@joshjackson: For those of you waiting for DVDs of any of these shows (like Dexter), the Emmy owes you a big apology. Total spoiler-fest.

@nickpaste: Pretty much seems like you could do a John Hodgman-Justin Long hosting duo for the Emmy’s but the window is missed at this point.

From Twitter @karlklockars: Instead of “wrap up” for Top Chef victory speech on the prompter, shoulda said “please pack your Emmy and go.”

From Twitter @mattdentler: Just think, only a few years ago, reality shows weren’t even eligible for #Emmys. Now: they are the most commercially viable categories.

@joshjackson: That’s Nick Marino that watches religiously. I need to start now that I’m cooking more. I made a poor man’s ratatouille tonight for 20 people.

@nickpaste: You watch Top Chef don’t you? Is it really that good?

@nickpaste: Reality program nominee list: Fastest ever and major upset to knock off The Amazing Race.

Outstanding Reality – Competition Program
The Amazing Race • CBS
American Idol • FOX
Dancing With The Stars • ABC
Project Runway • Lifetime
Top Chef • Bravo

Who We Wanted: Project Runway
Who We Predicted: The Amazing Race, again.

@joshjackson: No other show has won in the seven-year history of the category. It’d be great to see Top Chef or Project Runway change that.

@joshjackson: I need to see Nurse Jackie. Heard nothing but good things.

nickpaste: Edie’s such a great actor her feigned surprise actually seemed real.

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series
Glee • FOX • Lea Michele as Rachel Berry
The New Adventures Of Old Christine • CBS • Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Christine Campbell
Nurse Jackie • Showtime • Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton
Parks And Recreation • NBC • Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope

United States Of Tara • Showtime • Toni Collette as Tara Gregson

Who Won: Edie Falco
Who We Wanted: Tina Fey 
Who We Predicted: Toni Collette
Who Got Snubbed: Mary Louise-Parker for Weeds

@joshjackson: Collette is a great actress, but for pure comic timing, nobody beats Liz Lemon.

@nickpaste: Fallon doesn’t seem as wildly unpredictable as Neil Patrick Harris last year.

@nickpaste: Kind of wild how much industry “hand” Doogie has at this point.

From Twitter @chriswillman: Emmys front-loaded with comedy about comedy. Smart, but not looking forward to the part where there are mini-series about mini-series.

@nickpaste: Yay Jim Parsons! Super awesome that Paste was DEAD WRONG. JOSH I TOLD YOU HE WAS AMAZING!

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series
  The Big Bang Theory • CBS • Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper

Who We Predicted: Alec Baldwin 
Who Got Snubbed: Ty Burrell for Modern Family, Joel McHale for Community, Adam Scott for Party Down

@joshjackson: For lead comedic actor, I might have picked a completely different set of nominees except for Baldwin and David. But I’d still have given the trophy to Jack Donaghy.

@nickpaste: Stewie gets a good line! Clooney. Kind of owns earth at this point.

Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series
The Big Bang Theory  • The Maternal Congruence • CBS • Christine Baranski as Beverly Hofstadter
Desperate Housewives • The Chase • ABC • Kathryn Joosten as Karen McCluskey
Glee • The Rhodes Not Taken • FOX • Kristin Chenoweth as April Rhodes

Glee • Dream On • FOX • Neil Patrick Harris as Bryan Ryan

30 Rock • Into The Crevasse • Will Arnett as Devin Banks

Who Won: Neil Patrick Harris 
Who We Wanted: Neil Patrick Harris 
Who We Predicted: Neil Patrick Harris 

@joshjackson: Will Arnett is always funny and Fred Willard’s chemistry with Ty Burrell was screen magic, but last year’s host will be this year’s winner.

@joshjackson: He just directed the Facebook movie.

@nickpaste: Matthew Perry: All I’m thinking about now is Studio City on the Sunset Strip. Where are you AARON SORKIN????

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series
The Big Bang Theory  • CBS • Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper
Curb Your Enthusiasm • HBO • Larry David as Himself
Glee • FOX • Matthew Morrison as Will Schuester
Monk • USA • Tony Shalhoub as Adrian Monk
The Office • NBC • Steve Carell as Michael Scott
30 Rock • NBC • Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy

Who We Wanted: Alec Baldwin 
Who We Predicted: Alec Baldwin 
Who Got Snubbed: Ty Burrell for Modern Family, Joel McHale for Community, Adam Scott for Party Down

@joshjackson: For lead comedic actor, I might have picked a completely different set of nominees except for Baldwin and David. But I’d still have given the trophy to Jack Donaghy.

@joshjackson: True Blood didn’t get much love from the nominating committee, so there won’t be much.

@nickpaste: Somehow this is a win for Christopher Guest, which I’m totally cool with. Hey, during all vampire-related moments of the evening, let’s just talk football, ok?

@nickpaste: Fallon’s line about Colbert considering Steven Colbert a national treasure got a good belly laugh from my 11 year old.

@nickpaste: Confession time: Jane Krakowski the face AND her character both make my skin crawl.

@nickpaste: Jane Lynch wins: About as surprising as the sun coming up tomorrow.

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series
Glee • FOX • Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester
Modern Family • ABC • Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy
Modern Family • ABC • Sofia Vergara as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett
Saturday Night Live • NBC • Kristen Wiig as Various Characters
30 Rock • NBC • Jane Krakowski as Jenna Maroney
Two And A Half Men • CBS • Holland Taylor as Evelyn Harper

Who Won: Jane Lynch 
Who We Wanted: Jane Lynch 
Who We Predicted: Jane Lynch 
Who Got Snubbed: Elizabeth Perkins for Weeds

@joshjackson: Even if Glee doesn’t have a good night, Jane Lynch should get a chance to insult us all from the podium. Sofia Vergara or Kristen Wiig would be acceptable alternates.

@nickpaste: So I want to watch TV, um, a lot, but that’s supposed to be bad for you. It’s quite the conundrum.

@nickpaste: So Modern Family clearly has won the attention of the voters, huh?

Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series
Glee • Pilot – Director’s Cut • FOX
 Modern Family • Pilot • ABC
The Office • Niagara • NBC
30 Rock • Anna Howard Shaw Day • NBC
30 Rock • Lee Marvin Vs. Derek Jeter

Who Won: Modern Family 
Who We Wanted: Modern Family 
Who We Predicted: Glee

@joshjackson: All the slots except for Tracy Morgan and the rest of the 30 Rock cast.

@nickpaste: Good for Eric Stonestreet. Honor your father and mother, the good book says, and so he did. Seriously, Modern Family could have had all the slots on this.

@joshjackson: Yay for Eric Stonestreet. If you haven’t been watching Modern Family, I think it’s the funniest sitcom going. And Stonestreet is a big part of why.

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series
Glee • FOX • Chris Colfer as Kurt Hummel
How I Met Your Mother • CBS • Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson
Modern Family • ABC • Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell
 Modern Family • ABC • Eric Stonestreet as Cameron Tucker
Modern Family • ABC • Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy
Two And A Half Men • CBS • Jon Cryer as Alan Harper

Who Won: Eric Stonestreet

Who Should Win: Eric Stonestreet

Who We Predicted: Neil Patrick Harris 

Who Got Snubbed: Tracy Morgan for 30 Rock, Rainn Wilson for The Office, Danny Pudi for Community, Donald Glover for Community

@joshjackson: Can we just keep the Modern Family crew and scrap the rest? This category is a mess. It’s also a bit of an embarrassment to host NBC which prides itself on the funny.

@nickpaste: Jon Hamm + Betty White: Who could ever have imagined this to be logical??? Yet, it is so.

@nickpaste: By the way, thank you Larry David for figuring out how to get some kind of Seinfeld reunion

@nickpaste: Thank you NBC for letting Jimmy bring up Team Coco. I’m thinking Conan gets more than a shoutout or two tonight. As it should be.

@nickpaste: How did he go from t-shirt to tuxedo in like 15 seconds???? YAY Hollywood! We’re in, at least for tonight.

@nickpaste: Can you go wrong with Springsteen? Word here is NO especially if you have Randy Jackson, Tina Fey, HURLEY!, Jane Lynch, Jon Hamm & Joel McHale. Fantastic.

@nickpaste: Loving the opening piece – Kate Gosselin wins points for self-depracation. Jon Hamm + Betty White FTW!!
