The annual Emmy awards show is television's biggest night. TV's version of the Oscars have been awarded each summer since 1948 by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and over 600 million viewers (in 85 countries) tune in to watch. Virtually every star of the small screen shows up, and the good news is that you can watch them in person.

You can see stars from your favorite TV series, such as Kiefer Sutherland ("24"), Teri Hatcher ("Desperate Housewives"), Kevin James ("The King of Queens"), Sally Field ("Brothers & Sisters"), Steve Carell ("The Office"), Charlie Sheen ("Two and a Half Men"), James Spader ("Boston Legal") Charlie Sheen ("Two & a Half Men"), Geena Davis "Commander in Chief", Peter Krause ("Six Feet Under"), Tony Shalhoub ("Monk"), Holly Hunter ("Saving Grace") and Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock").
