The 66th Emmy Awards will be hosted by NBC’s newest late night emcee, Seth Meyers. Presenters include Bryan Cranston, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Halle Berry and Julia Roberts. Cable sibling E! will begin its fashion coverage with 90-minute Countdown to the Red Carpet scheduled for 4:30 p.m., followed by a two- hour tweet-filled livestream of the red carpet.
