Quote of the Day
At the Emmys, you've got a bunch of people who are used to being on TV on TV. You don't have that at the Oscars. At the Oscars, you have people who are used to having 40 takes.
I didn't know I was cool, but I was very flattered that some of the younger comedy writers came up to talk to me at the Emmys. I found that gratifying.
I have a great job writing for 'The Office,' but, really, all television writers do is dream of one day writing movies. I'll put it this way: At the Oscars the most famous person in the room is, like, Angelina Jolie. At the Emmys the huge exciting celebrity is Bethenny Frankel. You get what I mean.
The awards world can be ridiculous, but I'm not one to bash it. I love awards! When I've been nominated for Emmys and when I won my DGA Award, I couldn't have been happier. I always liked getting a gold star in class.
The craft Emmys are kind of the kids' table at Thanksgiving. You're not really invited to the big dance. It's still really, really exciting, and the statue still counts.
When I got recognized as a writer, when I got the Emmy, I was more excited than the Emmys I had gotten as an actor.
Television has its own award. It's called the Emmy. It's a good award. I like it. I have one. But you don't see movies like 'The King's Speech' win Oscars and then go to TV and qualify for Emmys. In documentaries, some networks have been able to game the system.
I'm an ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and one of the children, his wish was to go to the Emmys, so he's going to be my date, along with my husband, and my dad and his girlfriend. So we're going to have a really fun night and it's going to be really exciting. I'm really excited for him to experience that.
I mean, the competition is really created by the buzz around the Emmys. It's a totally subjective thing.
Michael C. Hall
I think the most important thing about the Emmys stuff is just to enjoy it. It can get really stressful in weird ways, and I have definitely experienced that. This year, I really just want to have it be a fun celebration!
The Emmys are flat-out fun.
When you feel an audience engaged and surprised and enthusiastic, reacting to what you've planned, that is the reward. It's better than the Emmys.
George Stevens, Jr.
Well I was out in the garden moving rocks on the day of the Emmys. I was just playing in the dirt.
Tinseltown is eerily silent when The Oscars, The Emmys and The Grammys, The Sag Awards, and The Golden Globes aren't in full swing.
I'm most excited to meet Jon Hamm at the Emmys.
I don't know what's going on that I'm hosting the Emmys during really hard times. But I guess it's an honor and a privilege that I'm the one who gets to try to walk that line of making people feel good.
I've been nominated for Emmys and Golden Globes, but I've never won one and I probably never will.
I'm not into the Oscar and Emmys as much as I used to be because I'm tired of looking at people who don't look like me.
I've won several Emmys, a Tony and a Grammy, so maybe somebody will let me have an Oscar, and then I'll have a full set.
Dick Van Dyke
I've been nominated for 12 Emmys, and we won - for 'Top Chef' - the only time I didn't go.
The Emmys is great, but the Golden Globes, you have the stars of television and the stars of movies in one place.
Ultimately the Emmys are a popularity contest.
America Held Hostage won 24 Emmys for ABC News, but someone forgot to include my name on the list of people responsible for the show.
Truly what the Emmys are about are the machine behind them, and Oscars are the same way, where if you have a big enough machine behind you, you get nominated, because truly how many of the best performances actually win... not many.
Generally with the Oscars or the Emmys there isn't much you can do until the nominations are announced. Then you know what kind of year you're dealing with - what's been overlooked, what the issues are.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
