Backstage HOT SHOTS from the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards!
Did you watch the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards this year??? I’ve got it on my DVR, because I was busy hanging out backstage with presenters, nominees and winners — at the Emergen-C Inner City of Strength in The Presenters Gift Lounge backstage at The Nokia Theatre in Celebration of The 64th Primetime Emmy(R) Awards!
I had the pleasure of welcoming and chatting with stars from television’s biggest shows like Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Mad Men, New Girl, Damages, Homeland, Downton Abbey. Some of my favorite moments were with “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan, “Modern Family” winner Eric Stonestreet, actresses Lucy Liu, Martha Plimpton, and Mayim Bialik (Blossom!!!), the iconic Glen Close & so many more…
I had so many favorite moments but here is Micah Jesse’s Top 5 Favorite Primetime Emmy Awards Moments for 2012:
- Actor, director and all-around intertainment industry legend Ron Howard stopped by the Emergen-C City of Inner Strength, where I was holding court, and told me that Super Orange was his favorite flavor because it reminded him of Tang, the popular drink from the “Happy Days” era. When asked where he’s residing these days, Ron said, “we really live in New York – we have an apartment in Santa Monica but most of our time is spent at our houses in Manhattan and Westchester County.” He went on to explain that he “grew up in Los Angeles and loves it here, but New York is now home.” Home to me, too, Ron!
- Giancarlo Esposito, who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for “Breaking Bad”, was such a breath of fresh air! I asked the vivacious actor if he drank Emergen-C, he said, “Are you kidding me – I don’t travel without it!” If Giancarlo had a superpower, he told me he would actually have a dual-superpower…he would be able to read minds & fly. Love that!
- Who’s more fun than “30″ rock star Tracy Morgan? Easy answer — no one! The funnyman stopped backstage to kick his feet up and relax before the show was over and entertain us all. Tracy had us fizzing at the seams with hysterics. At one point he picked up the phone and said, “Tell Barack I’ll be right there!” You can actually watch a clip from Access Hollywood!
- Best known for playing Al Bundy on “Married With Children,” actor Ed O’Neill was celebrating an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series nomination for his role as Jay Pritchett on “Modern Family.” As much as he loves his role as an actor, Ed told me that ultimately, he wants to be best known for being a “super dad.” Awwwwwwww!!!! Mush!
- And last, but certainly not least, having a moment with actor Eric Stonestreet, who won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Cameron Tucker on “Modern Family.” The actor told me he is “super” at cooking and makes a mean steak. And he laughed off rumors of dating Charlize Theron but said he wasn’t mad about it! I wouldn’t be either!

David Hasselhoff Celebrates His Birthday — Looking Good At 60!
David Hasselhoff hit the town on Saturday night to celebrate his 60th birthday!
The actor was joined by girlfriend Hayley Roberts, daughter Taylor Ann Hasselhoff, and members of the original Baywatch and Knight Rider casts, for his b-day bash at LA hot spot Greystone Manor.
As a very special gift, his former cast mates presented the pop culture icon a replica of KITT, the car from Knight Ryder, in the parking lot with his girlfriend and daughter by his side.
The gang was just missing Hasselhoff’s youngest daughter, Hayley, but onlookers said Taylor Ann did enough partying for the both of them as she danced the night away with friends at a table.
The Hoff partied hard for his birthday celebration, but our source tells MJ, “he wasn’t drinking…he joked he couldn’t eat anymore cake since he had to drive his precious cargo home!”Read More

“Hunger Games” Takes The MTV Movie Awards: Josh Hutchenson & Jennifer Lawrence Win Best Performance!
Josh received his golden popcorn for his role as Peta Mellark, the boy chosen to represent District 12 in the Hunger Games alongside Katniss Everdeen. When he received his award for Best Male Performance, he told the audience “Oh, my god. I’ve wanted to hold a Golden Popcorn since I was like 4 years old. This is incredible.” He also spoke about his admiration for the other nominees in his category such as Daniel Radcliffe and Ryan Gosling. Jennifer received the award for Best Female Performance for her role as Katniss. She was not there to accept the award in person because she is filming a movie in Prague, but her speech, where she extended a special thanks to “The Hunger Games” writer Suzanne Collins, played over the screen.
The movie earned a total of four awards, including Best Fight and Best On Screen Transformation. We are very excited to see these two in action next year, as the Novemeber 2013 premiere of ”Catching Fire” in theaters is already very highly anticipated.Read More

Emma Watson has grown a lot since her days as little Hermione Granger in Harry Potter. The 22 year old beauty who was honored with the MTV Trailblazer Award, glowed on the red carpet in a halter print dress by Brood and Tabitha Simmons strappy sandals.
Emma Stone, a nominee for Best Female Performance for her role in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” looked fabulous in this Martin Grant dress, pumps by Brian Atwood and jewelry by Tiffany & Co. Her updo and simple makeup were the perfect addition to her look.
