Twitter has just won an Emmy award. Yup, you read that right: the microblogging site has scored itself an atom-toting statuette, though nobody's dressing up in a blue bird costume and walking down the red carpet to accept it (probably). What the company won is a technology and engineering Emmy for...

You just have to love it, don't you? In a situation that reminds us all too much of Sony's SIXAXIS Emmy fiasco (minus the fiasco), Panasonic has taken it upon itself to boast (quite heavily) about an Emmy that it's merely connected to. You see, an Emmy Engineering Award will soon be given to the Joi...

The Game Controller Innovation award was given to both consoles, while the Handheld Game Device Display Screen Innovation was shared between t...

What we're watching: We'll keep an eye on NBC Sunday Night Football to see if we can spot any of Belichick's cameramen prowling the San Diego sideline, but the big show tonight is the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards on Fox.

We weren't sure why the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences decided to give Sony's evolutionary SIXAXIS controller a Technology and Engineering Emmy and, evidently, neither were they. After Sony blasted out a press release proudly proclaiming the honor -- and after the internet rubbed...

We love HD shows that go the extra mile to take advantage of HDTVs (My Name is Earl, The Office), or just have special effects and environments that look great in HD (24, Lost).

If you hop on over to our sister blog, you can catch TV Squad's take on all of the Emmy festivities. You'll see coverage from the red carpet right on through to the final award, so sneak a...
