Sure, the official start of fall is today, but summer's never over until the Emmys are. They're the perfect nightcap to a season of incredible television (and a wonderful way to tide us over until award season officially kicks off in the new year). All those hours spent glued to our sets, binging on Netflix in bed, and reading recap after recap all lead to this one night. Chances are you probably have many a favorite actor and show, and picking one winner is like choosing which child is your favorite. Luckily, there's a group of people to do the hard work for you, so all you have to do is sit back, pour some bubbly, and watch. We'll be doing the legwork for you, too: live-updating the winners as the night goes on, and providing sassy live commentary over at the Refinery29 Twitter. We're not saying we're more important than the actual ceremony, but hey, you don't want to look like a fool around the watercooler tomorrow morning, now do you?
