  1. O'Brien hosts the Emmys

    <b>Host</b><br /><br />This is a tough year to be hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards, as Conan O'Brien readily admits. Not that it has been easy before: The only other time he had this gig was 2002, a scant year after Sept. 11. It was questioned then whether it was OK to be humorous again. The prevailing opinion, though, was that O'Brien nailed it with a perfect blend of sass and sensibility. This time, O'Brien finds himself in a predicament of a different sort, looking to set a mood of spoof and celebration during a year of controversy about a new Emmy nomination system and a challenging airdate in late August, rather than the usual September. But it says a lot about the talent of a guy who has been a late-night talk fixture for 13 years, fronting NBC's "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," that nobody seems terribly worried about his ability to make those obstacles seem insignificant. O'Brien even admitted to looking forward to the challenge during a recent telephone conversation with Ray Richmond for The Hollywood Reporter.Read more
