Watch TV’s Emmy Awards live instead of on TV
CBS, which will broadcast the Emmy ceremony live from Los Angeles on Sept. 20, has invited fans to enter a “best seat in the house” contest by submitting a 30-second video explaining why they are “TV’s Number One Fan.”
One prize winner, over the age of 18, will attend the Emmy Awards and will be seated among the stars for the glitzy three-hour award ceremony.
Bill Binenstock, vice president of CBS.com, said the contest was a “great way to get fans involved” in the TV industry’s biggest night. Actor Neil Patrick Harris, star of the TV comedy “How I Met Your Mother”, will host the ceremony, and comedy “30 Rock” and drama series “Mad Men” are expected to be be among the big winners.
