Emmy Awards 2010: Live Tweets during the telecast

By Jen Chaney

As the Emmys unfold, Jen Chaney Tweets from the comfort of her couch. Follow along here, or at

Update: The following is an archive of Jen's Tweet's from the Emmys, in reverse chronological order. Scroll to the bottom to start from the beginning.

For those keeping track, "Lost" wins just one Emmy -- the editing award it got at last week's Creative Arts ceremony. #emmys2010

And the winner for best comedy is ... "Modern Family." An upset, but I kinda saw it coming. #emmys2010

Best drama is ... "Mad Men."Love "Mad Men," but ... boring. A surprise would have been fun. #emmys2010

Claire Danes gets teary as "Temple Grandin" wins best TV movie. I Can't bear seeing Danes cry. True in "Little Women," true now. #emmys2010

"The Pacific" wins Emmy for best miniseries, finally providing a reason to get Tom Hanks on the stage. #emmys2010

If the Emmy Awards telecast doesn't end on time, it's totally Pacino's fault. #emmys2010

Al Pacino -- perhaps he should have solicited Tweets in order to write an acceptance speech? #emmys2010

Claire Danes wins her first Emmy for "Temple Grandin." #emmys2010

And now the In Memoriam montage. Come on, Emmys, I'm already depressed about this Conan thing. Now you're going to make me cry? #emmys2010

David Strathairn just won Emmy for his work in "Temple Grandin." Another class act. #emmys2010

@elicash55 I hear you (& love your Twitter handle, BTW). But Conan submitted his last Tonight Show ep, which I thght was impeccably handled.

@Erick_Fo_Real Daily Show is good, but would be nice to see that category spread around a little. That's their 8th win in a row. #emmys2010

January Jones, presenting an Emmy Award, still unable to find a hairbrush. #emmys2010

George Clooney = class act. #emmys2010

Stop what you're doing/cuz I'm about to Clooney. Or the Emmys is, anyway. #emmys2010

I so wanted Conan to get up there. Can't he make a speech anyway? Please?

Oh, BOO. The Daily Show just beat Conan O'Brien. I like "The Daily Show," but really. How dull. #emmys2010

The award for most bored person at the Emmys: Bryan Cranston's daughter. #emmys2010

Ricky Gervais's Mel Gibson joke sounds like it played quite well in the room. #emmys10

Okay, we're on to variety show. If Conan doesn't win, this whole thing is a sham. #emmys2010

All right, props to Jimmy Fallon's farewell to "24," "Law and Order" and "Lost." That was a decent Billie Joe Armstrong. #emmys10

I have to say, they are cranking through the categories at these Emmy Awards. Just might finish on time tonight. #emmys10

@dcetstyle If I had been in an Emmy pool, I definitely would have lost in that category. Did not see Archie Punjabi coming. #emmys10

@marymdaly That would have been amazing. Guess we'll have to wait until they do another show together.

Aw, Matthew Fox is so nervous, I want him to win the Emmy. Bummer. He didn't. Bryan Cranston did. #emmys10.

Archie Panjabi wins for Good Wife, supp. actress in a drama. Another surprise. #emmys10

@marymdaly Supp. actor seemed like Lost's best shot. I can't see it winning best drama or best actor, deserving though it may be. #emmys10

@missphenom Hey, I liked Jennifer Grey's mambo dress! But Russell's ensemble might not be my fave of the night.

Aaron Paul of "Breaking Bad" wins Emmy for supporting actor in a drama. Lost is going to walk away empty-handed, I think. #emmys10

Episode of "Mad Men" wins for best writing. Have a feeling this is going to be a "Mad Men" night. #emmys10

Outstanding drama writing -- can Lost win it? #emmys10

Another surprise: "Top Chef" wins best reality competition Emmy, finally unseating "Amazing Race." #emmys10

I think Keri Russell is wearing the same dress Jennifer Grey wore to do the mambo routine in "Dirty Dancing." #emmys10

Jim Parsons wins Emmy for best actor in a comedy. "Nerds are taking to the streets," according to voiceover man @hodgman. #emmys10

Even the Modern Family Emmy bit is funny. #emmys10

Glee's now got 2 Emmys. Modern Family also has 2. #emmys10

Jane Lynch -- not a surprise that she won an Emmy. But nice to see nonetheless. #emmys10

First surprise of the night: Eric Stonestreet of Modern Family wins Emmy. Sign of a Modern Family sweep? #emmys10

First Conan sighting. Delicious. #emmys10

I wonder how Springsteen feels about this Emmy opening. #emmys10

Lea Michele: ghetto prob wasn't the best word choice to describe the cupcake-in-a-jar Billy Bush gave her. #emmys10

In a Emmy cute couple-off, who wins: Steve Carell/Nancy Walls or Will Arnett/Amy Poehler? Tough call. #emmys10

Jane Lynch looks great at the Emmy Awards. And so does Kelly Osbourne (@MissKellyO). #emmys10

Well, Mark Salling really cleared up that whole Naya Rivera situation on E! Emmy Awards red carpet. Any by really I mean not at all. #emmys
