Keep Refreshing Throughout The Night!
8:08 P [KP] First award presented by Ray Romano. Who apparently said bad words as the tv screen froze. He's doing stand up and I don't know why. Just do the award.
*Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series*
Award goes to Jeremy Piven from Entourage. Good call. He makes that show. He called it an embarassment of riches to have that role. Nice short speech with love to his Dad.

The Emmy goes to Terry O'Quinn from LOST. WOW! I never saw that one coming. First win for Terry, his second nomination. Thanked his wife right away. That's a sparkly tie he's rocking right there. He's comparing running around the woods to being on other shows. Very funny. The music is starting to play and Terry wraps it up quickly.
