The 2014 Emmy Winners – Updated Live

Well, it’s that time of year again. It’s time for the battle of the TV titans to be waged on live television! …On a Monday. We know some of you are excited to get your fantasy leagues going, but we’re a little miffed that one of our favoritest, silliest awards shows is right at the end of the work day. That’s ok, though. We will soldier on. You know, like a member of Night’s Watch staring down a wooly mammoth. And in case you’re stuck at work, desperately trying to live stream the show in a tiny browser so your boss doesn’t see, never fear: we’ve got the live updates right here. Beginning at 5PM PT we’ll be updating this post with the winners as they’re announced, so keep your eyes on this page and join the conversation with us on Twitter.

Who do you think will reign triumphant this year? Can True Detective beat out the other illustrious drama contenders? Will Orange Is The New Black make history and take home a ton of prizes? Will everyone’s acceptance speeches make me cry? (Spoiler alert: yes.) Let us know your thoughts in the comments below or chat with me about it on Twitter.
