What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

Originally posted 08/20/2014 07:10PM

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.

It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?

Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.

Massive spoilers below!

How I Met Your Mother Star Cristin Milioti Returning to TV in NBC Rom-Com

Originally posted 05/12/2014 09:20PM

Miss How I Met Your Mother? NBC is bringing actress Cristin Milioti (The Mother) back to the small screen this fall for another adorable comedy about how love stands the test of time.

A to Z, executive-produced by Rashida Jones, tells the story of Andrew (Mad Men's Ben Feldman), a hopeless romantic who works at an online dating service. He tries to hide his cheesiness, belting Céline Dion in the comfort of his car and learning how to hit on women with a coworker. But when he meets the straight-laced Zelda (Milioti), he realizes he's seen her before: shimmering in a silver dress at a concert in 2012.

The show follows Andrew and Zelda's relationship from start to finish – as the title cutely puts it, from A to Z. Watch the trailer below.

Much as Bob Saget provided the voice of future Ted in the original series, Ryan will be unseen as the voice of future Sally, whose present, on-camera self will be portrayed by Greta Gerwig.

See a Fan-Made How I Met Your Mother Ending That Rights All the Finale's Wrongs

Originally posted 04/03/2014 11:00AM

[EMBEDCODE {}] Monday night's finale of How I Met Your Mother was arguably the most disastrously received series ender since Lost. Its missteps were legion (spoiler alert) – killing off the Mother, throwing away the Barney-Robin relationship – but most complaints boiled down to the same source: Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas were too in love with the road map they'd created years ago, to the detriment of the finale's emotional thrust.

Now one helpful fan has come along to undo all that bad work. Using a few simple edits, YouTube user Ricardo J. Dylan has given viewers the finish they wanted all along, one that preserves the series' romantic soul while jettisoning some of the finale's other … distractions.
