Emmy Awards

VIBE – Monday 19 September, 12pm (Highlights encore Sunday 25 September, 5.40pm)

This September on Vibe we pay tribute to television with exclusively live coverage of the prestigious awards show that recognises outstanding achievements on the small screen. Taking over hosting duties this year is the hilarious Jane Lynch (Sue

Sylvester from Glee), who won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series last year, so expect plenty of laughs and sarcastic remarks at this year’s ceremony. “I am tickled pink to be hosting the Primetime Emmys…,” said Lynch. “I’m looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit.” Nearly half of the nominated Comedy and Drama series are first time nominees. New among the outstanding drama series nominees are Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and Friday Night Lights; for outstanding comedy series, first time nominees are The Big Bang Theory and Parks and Recreation.

Programmes receiving ten or more nominations include Mildred Pierce, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Modern Family, Saturday Night Live, Game of Thrones, 30 Rock, Glee, Downton Abbey (Masterpiece), American Idol and The Kennedys. Join Vibe for exclusively live coverage of the 2011 63rd Primetime Emmy� Awards, plus a special ‘best-bits’ highlights show the following Sunday.
