Scott Thorson

Persona Non Grata

At Emmys

9/20/2013 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0920-scott-thorson-emmysScott Thorson -- a central character in the HBO movie, "Behind the Candelabra" which has 16 nominations -- is getting anything BUT fabulous treatment, because he's NOT invited to the Emmys.

An Emmy official tells TMZ --  it's simple ... Thorson -- who is played by Emmy nominee Matt Damon  ... doesn't have a ticket and the event is sold out.

It's not as if Liberace's former lover -- who's currently in an outpatient facility for drug abuse -- didn't want to go.  TMZ obtained a letter dated August 8th and written by Scott's drug counselor, asking a drug court judge to give him a weekend pass to attend the Emmys. 

Rather than feeling snubbed, Scott now says it's a good idea that he stay away from Hollywood -- too tempting, and all that.

You may recall ... Scott recently tested positive for meth.  He could have gone to jail on a probation violation but the judge showed him mercy and ordered him to continue outpatient drug counseling.

CBS Honcho Les Moonves

The Daytime Emmys


6/18/2013 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

061813_les_mooves_launchLes Moonves knows good TV when he sees it -- but he can also spot a turd ... and the CBS honcho told TMZ the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards show was a bona fide stinker.

Les had his own table at the award show Sunday night ... where he watched disaster after disaster unfold on the stage ... culminating with producers giving Aisha Tyler the WRONG ENVELOPE to open during the Best Talk Show presentation.

"You know what ... it wasn't a very well produced show and you can put that on the air," Moonves tells TMZ.

But there was a silver lining for Mr. Moonves -- check out the video to see why Les was THRILLED after the show.


Carrie Fisher

Acid Flashback

At Daytime Emmys

6/18/2013 12:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Carrie Fisher treated the Daytime Emmy Awards like an AA meeting at a comedy club -- cracking drug jokes about Ozzy Osbourne ... and nearly making us forget the slew of blunders and miscues during the show.

We're looking at you George "NCAA" Lucas!


Daytime Emmys


Envelope Mix-Up During Live Show

6/17/2013 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Someone's probably getting FIRED at the Daytime Emmys this morning ... because when Aisha Tyler went on stage to present her award, someone gave her the WRONG ENVELOPE!!!

Aisha's reaction when she opens the envelope is priceless -- because she quickly realizes the name printed inside wasn't even nominated in the Best Talk Show category.

What ensues is pure live TV gold ... with Aisha vamping like a pro while the producers scrambled to get her the correct envelope.

Ya gotta watch the clip.


George Lucas

Thanks Black People

for 'NCAA' Award

6/17/2013 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Lucas thinks he won an "NCAA" award for his movie "Red Tails" ... which is incredible since he neither rebounds nor shoots well from the paint.

Lucas was accepting his first Emmy for his animated series "Star Wars: Clone Wars" ... when he TRIED to reference the NAACP award he won earlier this year for his WWII drama about the Tuskegee Airmen.

He ended up making a worse mistake than "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

Sofia Vergara


Emmy Celebration

9/24/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

092412_sofia_vergara_launch_v4Sofia Vergara celebrated "Modern Family's" big Emmy win last night by shaking her ass like a CHAMPION in a tight sexy dress ... and TMZ has ALL of the incredible jiggly footage.

It all went down at the HBO Emmy Party at the Pacific Design Center -- when Sofia stormed into the place around 1 AM with the urge to dance her face off in her ultra-skin tight dress.

Sofia -- clearly excited her show won the statue for Best Comedy Series-- went straight to the center of the party and began gyrating to Gloria Estefan's "Conga."

With the crowd egging her on, Vergara requested the DJ play the Enrique Iglesias track, "I Like It"... and of course, he obliged.

Congrats to Sofia ... and whoever told her to wear that dress out last night -- you deserve a gold star.

Christina Hendricks

Brought Her Cleavage

to the Emmys

9/24/2012 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's awards season ... so naturally, Christina Hendricks' boobs dolled themselves up for a big night out at the Emmys!!

The boobs sat at a table with their "Mad Men" co-stars ... while sipping on champagne and snacking on some fancy desserts. They didn't win an award, but still a great time was had by all.

Sources say Christina was there too.

Heidi Klum & Her Legs

Brave The Red Carpet

Sans Bodyguard

9/23/2012 4:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Klum
showed up to the Emmy Awards moments ago without her bodyguard boyfriend ... but fully rocking her smokin' hot body.

Klum walked the red carpet at the Nokia theater in downtown L.A. sporting a scantily cut sea-foam dress ... where the plunging neckline and high leg slits managed to meet in practically the same place.

 ... and it was awesome.

Josh Charles

Breast Supporting Actor

9/19/2011 4:45 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

"The Good Wife" star Josh Charles gave his girlfriend Sophie Flack a helping hand on the red carpet at the Emmys last night.

Josh didn't win an Emmy, but he did manage to grab a golden globe.


Charlie Sheen

Another 'Men' Message

9/18/2011 6:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen ironically and rather awkwardly presented the Emmy for Best Actor in a Comedy Series -- but before he did, he had something to say (again) to the people at "Two and a Half Men."

The warlock also chatted up his replacement -- Ashton Kutcher -- backstage at the Emmys.

Charlie posted this pic on his WhoSay account during the show.

'Anarchy' Creator PISSED Over Emmy Snub

7/14/2011 3:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who created "Sons of Anarchy" just UNLEASHED THE FURY all over Emmy voters ... claiming they're all "f**king old," out of touch prudes who SCREWED his show out of a nomination.


After the Emmy noms were announced this morning, Kurt Sutter went to Twitter and fired off the following:

"The worse part of not getting an emmy nod. katey [his wife] promised me a threesome if she won. now i have to settle for me, her and the shaved bunny."

"Best part of not getting an emmy nod. now i don't have to pretend i give a s**t about the profiteering douchebag academy ...  because you know if we were nominated i'd be all humble and blowing smoke up their asses. now i can stay true to myself and just be a d**k."

He continues with a joke -- "These two academy member walk into a bar. one orders a beer. then they both die because they're so f**king old."

And ... "If my mom and dad were alive this emmy snub would kill them. that's not true, they were too old to understand my show. just like the academy."

Sutter also took aim at "Glee" ... writing, "f**k glee. hate those annoying, 'please accept me for who i am', singing brats. there, i said it. are you happy?"

He went on to explain, "I love ryan murphy ['Glee' creator]. he's always very cool with me. love glee too. just tired of all the j**z piling up at its feet."
