Yes, it’s awards season again. It’s time for a red carpet, and competing predictions, and laughter. We’ve made a tradition, at WVFC, of live-blogging the awards ceremonies as they happen, to cheer on our favorites and dish about absurdities.

Starting at 8 p.m. (EST) tonight, Sunday, September 22 on CBS, we’ll be watching and live-blogging the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.

Many of our favorite women are  nominated and many of the women we love will also be presenting statuettes to others, which gives us a chance to see them, whether or not they win.

Join us and cheer along. Meet us right here on our “Emmy Live Blog 2013” post, scroll down below, and comment. It’s that simple! (You will be asked to enter a name and email address only once.) We welcome your opinions—as short or long as you like. Comments will be screened before we post them, and our online chats are famously civil (if a little catty sometimes about fashion). Feel free to share links and photos—and Tweets @womensvoices, too! (Here’s how it went at this year’s Oscar night.)

    Elton John sure makes the stage sparkle! Neil Patrick Harris continues to be a role model for former child stars! Pure class. Looking forward to Carrie Underwood’s performance.

    Jean Stapleton: what an actress! Edith Bunker: what a character! I still remember the episode where she kept shrieking at Archie because she was going through “the change”—and he looked at his watch and growled, “OK, Edith, you going through the change? You got 30 seconds…now change!” And she said earnestly, “Is it okay if I serve the dinner first?”

    I agree! The tributes are nice but they’re missing an opportunity to share the work with younger people who don’t know it.

    Before we leave Winters behind completely, Frank Conniff points out: “What better way to pay tribute to the genius of Jonathan Winters than by NOT SHOWING ANY CLIPS OF HIS WORK?”

    From Vulture: “Robin Williams paying tribute to the late Jonathan Winters. “Comedy at the speed of thought.” The man without who R. Williams would not exist.”
