The 71st Emmy Awards–honoring the best television in comedy, drama, variety, and movies–are taking place tonight on FOX, airing live 8-11 PM ET/5-8 PM PT. The Emmy’s are following in Oscar’s footsteps this year by going without a host. I’m hope this doesn’t become the future as it will put many comedians out of a job.
