Why are the Emmy Awards on a Monday night?

A very good question, and there are a lot of very mundane details that make up the reason: Basically, it’s NBC’s turn to host the Emmys this year, but the network has to air NFL football on Sunday nights in the fall, and that takes up most of the schedule. As a result — and due to the fact that the VMAs were already scheduled for last night — we have a Monday night Emmy Awards.

Either way, the show goes on.

A short history of E! madness on the red carpet

First, there was the Glam Cam.

Then, the Glam Cam started rotating.

Then, there was the Mani Cam.

 

Then, the excitement of the Mani Cam craziness wore off.

 

Now this year? The Clutch Cam.

Where's Ryan Seacrest?

If you’re looking for Ryan Seacrest on the E! red carpet — he’s always good for a super-uncomfortable celebrity interaction — you’re out of luck. Sadly, the Monday night Emmys means that Seacrest is too busy with his million other jobs to stop by. Don’t worry — Guiliana Rancic (filling in with Ross Mathews) knows how make a fool of herself in public, so there will be no lack of entertainment value.

Taylor Schilling has the honor of being first on the red carpet

“Can we see what’s in your clutch?” Giuliana Rancic asks “Orange is the New Black” star Taylor Schilling, who’s up for the lead actress in a comedy prize.

The question was really just a plug for E!’s new creepy camera feature, the “Clutch Cam.” Either way, Schilling started showing the audience everything that’s in her purse. These are the things that happen when no one’s on the red carpet yet.

Ricky Gervais makes fun of Ryan Seacrest, obviously

Ricky Gervais starts trashing someone who just interviewed him a minute ago on the red carpet. “He’s never going to make it big,” he tells Giuliana Rancic of the offending reporter. The conversation then delves into making fun of the absent Ryan Seacrest (asking if he’s away at his full-body wax). Sorry Seacrest, if you’re going to bail on the red carpet, that’s just what’s going to happen.

Fun facts about Debra Messing and Kit Harrington

Debra Messing of NBC’s “The Mysteries of Laura” becomes the first celebrity to use E!’s Clutch Cam and Mani Cam. That is very historic, Giuliana Rancic tells us.

Next up: Kit Harrington from “Game of Thrones.” We learn that he goes skinny dipping sometimes. He looks vaguely terrified of his surroundings.

Hayden Panettiere is having a baby girl (Plus: a brief 'Nashville' rant)

Can we just use this as an excuse to talk about the fact that the “Nashville” writers are planning to write Hayden Panettiere’s real-life pregnancy into the show? Come on, let’s make this less of a soap opera and more about the actual music industry. (Hey, we can dream.)

Anyway, Panettiere is not nominated — but she’ll be presenting an award later. She confirms to Giuliana Rancic that she’s having a girl.

Julie Bowen did not swear on live television

Oops, the E! censors are a bit sensitive today — they thought “Modern Family” star Julie Bowen started swearing up a storm, but no, she just said the word “fun.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus pokes holes in E!'s Clutch Cam

“Wouldn’t it be funny if I went over to the Clutch Cam and [my clutch] was gone?” Julia Louis-Dreyfus (nominated for “Veep”) asks Giuliana Rancic, saying what we’re all thinking about E! new dubious camera venture. Let’s not make it easier for red carpet thieves.

Subs are sandwiches, according to January Jones

January Jones (of “Mad Men”) was being interviewed by Giuliana Rancic (of the E! Network) for the E! Network a moment ago, producing this sublime exchange when Jones was asked about her routine:

Jones: “My sister got subs.”

Rancic: “Subs?”

Jones: “You know, sandwiches.”

If only this discussion could have continued for hours and hours. What else could subs have meant? Could she have been referring to submarines? Could she have said that her sister got a substitute of some kind? And what kind of substitute, exactly? How does Jones’s sister feel about her substitution being discussed on live television? These are the questions that we only wish we could learn the answers for during the red carpet. The E! red carpet coverage is a precious gem that should be preserved for future generations.
