Betty White Vs. Cloris Leachman: Octogenarian Emmy Matchup

HollywoodNews.com: When the 63rd Prime Time Emmy Awards are presented Sept. 18, unfortunately, we won’t be seeing what could have been the Ultimate Octogenarian TV Awards Smackdown. No, even though Emmy queens Betty White and Cloris Leachman are each nominees this year, they’re in different categories. Betty is in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy category where she belongs, while Cloris is a Guest Star nominee despite being on nearly every episode of her show, because that’s how she’s billed, and that’s how she chose to submit herself for Emmy consideration.
Still, awards handicappers are wondering which TV legend will add to her Emmy haul this year — or whether both, or neither, will win. Accordingly, here is a snapshot of the grande dames – or “old broads” as Betty would say – and how they match up:
Cloris Leachman: Born: April 30, 1926, Des Moines, IA
Emmy Nominations 22
Wins 9 (8 primetime, more than any other performer)
Unforgettable As: Frau Blücher in “Young Frankenstein,” Nurse Diesel in “High Anxiety,” Phyllis Lindstrom in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”
Betty White: Born: January 17, 1922, Oak Park, IL
Emmy Nominations: 21
Wins: 7 (6 primetime; she was the first woman to win a Daytime Emmy)
Unforgettable As: Sue Ann Nivens of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” Rose Nyland of “Golden Girls,” Sandra Bullock’s grandmother-in-law to-be in “The Proposal”

What you missed backstage from the Emmy Winners’ Circle

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: George Clooney proved again how utterly charming he is, Al Pacino quoted Michelangelo, and Kyra Sedgwick talked the fifth time being the charm backstage at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Maybe it was that First Amendment question that got things rolling. George Clooney, honored with the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award for his fund-raising work including this year’s multi-network telethon for Haiti earthquake relief, was asked about the conflict between wanting to maintain some kind of privacy in his life and his belief in the First Amendment.
He said firmly that, as the son of a newsman, “I always felt that the inconveniences I have are worth it rather than infringing on anyone else’s rights.”
Alrighty then, open season!
Clooney quickly deflected a question about his date – girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis — noting that “She picked me up in Italy” and yes, she was around.
He said he’d spent part of his day shooting hoops: “John Krasinski came over to my house with a bunch of guys to play basketball. If you see him later, well, he’s limping.”
Illustrating anew that the stars’ biggest fans are other stars, Clooney confessed to a moment of that star-struck feeling when he found himself with Al Pacino and Tom Selleck in the green room, and “suddenly I’m 14 years old. It’s very funny.”
He also gave the telecast its first glowing review: “The show is really good tonight. Jimmy Fallon is just really killing it. He’s just really funny.”
George on Prop 8 being lifted: “I think it’s terrific. Now it’s unlifted again…These are things that take a long time to change…People will look back on this period of history and think of it as an archaic time.”
George on his “ER” leading lady, Julianna Margulies, presenting his award: “It’s pretty great. We’ve stayed in touch. We’re good friends.”
Clooney talked about the namesake of his award, Bob Hope, noting, “It wasn’t just the USO shows. That’s something everybody remembers him for 50 years. He was one of the great charitable actors. He did it all, always a great sense of humor. He was fun. He’d just show up and do something.” Asked what he learned from Hope, Clooney, who knew the iconic comedian personally as a young man, recalled that “What you learn from him was, he didn’t take [...]

“Modern Family” grabs the first Emmy of the night

HollywoodNews.com: As the Primetime Emmys kicked off with a musical number, one of the shows that helped kick off the awards part of the night was “Modern Family.”
The show’s very own Eric Stonestreet jump-started the night winning the evening’s first award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy. His award was then followed up by co-creator Steve Levitan winning for Best Comedy Writing. It will be interesting to see if the show can hold off “Glee,” 30 Rock,” and “The Office” to take home Best Comedy Series later tonight.
