The Emmys welcomed plenty of movie stars to television's biggest awards show, including Julia Roberts, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Spacey, Mark Ruffalo and the reigning Oscar winner for best actor, Matthew McConaughey. All were sent home empty-handed.
In a story Aug. 26 listing the Emmy Awards winners, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Adam Bernstein won for outstanding directing of a miniseries, movie or dramatic special for "Fargo." Colin Bucksey won the category for "Fargo." Bernstein was also nominated for his direction of "Fargo."

"Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" held off the weekend's new releases as the summer movie-going season began to draw to a close.
In "If I Stay," Chloe Grace Moretz stars as a teenager whose world is mapping out quite nicely: she's a cello prodigy, up for an audition with the Juilliard School. An outsider at school, she's caught the eye of a budding rocker (English actor Jamie Blackley), and their relationship is turning serious, even soulful. Her parents (Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard) are totally supportive, totally cool.
"It was the maddest thing I'd ever read," Michael Fassbender says of the screenplay for "Frank, in which an aloof, avant-garde rock singer spends his entire waking life (perhaps his sleeping life, too) encased in a big, cartoonish, papier-mche head.
Odd, offbeat, somehow endearing, the bleakly comic "Frank" has its own kind of charm as well as some pointed, poignant things to say about the mysterious nature of creativity, where it comes from and where it might all go.
"Kundo: Age of the Rampant" may be unknown to the broader American public, but for fans of South Korean cinema, it's already legendary. The film debuted in its home country this year with an opening-day box-office record, smashing the number of the previous record-holder, "Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon" three years ago. Blockbuster, thy name is "Kundo."
Jury selection is underway in the trial of an Alabama man accused of fatally stabbing his cousin over a pair of DVDs.
"Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" triumphed at Monday's Emmy Awards, proving that established broadcast and cable fare retains the power to fend off challenges from upstart online series such as "Orange Is the New Black."
