Show Stories:

— BC-US--Emmys. By Television Writer Lynn Elber. Will begin with a Sunday morning laydown, followed by early color leads from the red carpet starting around 6:30p EDT. Once the show begins at 8p, individual floating NewsNows will be filed for the half-dozen top awards, slugged BC-US--Emmys-(category). And broader writethus will flow steadily through the conclusion of the show around 11p. All writethrus will effectively balance and blend winners, context, color and buzz, offering a full canvas of the evening.

— BC-US--Emmys-Show Bits. A continuous feed of colorful blurbs you won't see on TV. Well-suited for the two-screen audience, Show Bits can be anything from a good quote to a wry observation to a 200-word vignette. Filed individually as quickly as they're reported by our team of Emmy staffers, Show Bits will begin with carpet items around 6p and continuing late into the night with Bits from the after-party circuit.

— BC-US--Emmys-Show Bits-Package. An assembly of all Show Bits to that point, moving about every 30 minutes from approximately 8p to 4a and presented in reverse order, offering an inverted narrative of the ceremony from a variety of perspectives.

— BC-US--Emmys-Fashion. By Fashion Writer Samantha Critchell. A critical look at what worked and what didn't. Updated as necessary throughout the show from about 8:30p.

— BC-US--Emmys-List: A running list of winners in about two dozen major categories announced on the show. The list will be updated every three to five awards, depending on significance of the awards and timing of presentation, and listed each time in order of presentation. At the conclusion of the show, the final list of winners will be re-batched in order of significance.
