The 2008 Emmy Awards Winner and Surprises!

The 2008 Emmy Awards winners (Mad Men and John Adams casts)

30 Rock won the best comedy, while stars Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey swept best comic categories.

Jeremy Piven won another supporting actor in a comedy Emmy for Entourage, while Jean Smart won for her work on Samantha Who?.

Two Songs For Twilight Soundtrack From Paramore

Hayley Williams, Paramore's lead vocals is very ecstatic about the band's participation in the Twilight phenomenon. In fact, the band will contribute two songs into the soundtrack of the movie as confirmed by Williams today at MTV news, saying;
"Twilight really caught my attention and held it. I'm really excited to see the book adapted to film and excited that our band gets to be a part of the phenomenon."

Williams has posted multiple photos of herself with the vampire-themed novels and blogged extensively about her love for the Stephanie Meyers-penned books and says she's more than happy about the collaboration.

"Twilight is the first series of books I've ever read. I didn't get into the Harry Potter series, even though I love the movies," she said.

The Twilight movie, starring Kristen Stewart as shy teenager Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson as her vampire paramour Edward, will be in theaters Nov. 21.

Hollywood Parties For Barack Obama

Democrat presidential candidate, Barack Obama really knows how to roll the dice in his side. Last Tuesday he held two star-studded events in his honor in Beverly Hills.

The first event was a $28,500-per-plate dinner at the landmark Greystone Mansion attended by some bold-faced names, including Tobey McGuire, Leonardo DiCapro Jodie Foster and Chris Rock.

The second, a $2,500-per-ticket fund-raiser at the glamorous Regent Beverly Wilshire included performances by Ben Harper and Barbara Streisand.

After three songs, Streisand introduced the man of the hour, who came onstage to roaring applause and outbursts of "yes we can" and "sí se puede." Obama revved up the crowd, but kept a serious, even somber, tone during his speech, which touched on the current economic crisis, recent hurricanes to hit the Gulf Coast, and a fatal train crash in Los Angeles.

Among the crowd was Sarah Silverman and Ron Howard, who enjoyed the desserts and an open bar in between cracking jokes about the GOP's Sarah Palin and John McCain. Laura Dern watched her husband (Ben Harper) perform, but stood atop her chair when Obama made his entrance.

Together, the events raised an estimated $9 million for the Democratic presidential nominee.

Megan Fox Graces The Cover Of GQ Magazine October Issue

Megan Fox is heating up men's magazine GQ's October issue, posing in her bikini for its cover. The actress, who in April 2008 has been crowned as FHM's No. 1 Sexiest Woman in the World, shows off her curvy figure for the magazine's cover in black bikini, exposing part of her breasts.

That's the tongue-across-the-teeth, barely-there-bikini picture gracing the October issue of GQ, in which Fox, 22, makes no apologies about her movie roles.

"If I get stuck doing comic book films for the rest of my life, I'll be really happy," she tells the magazine. "I love those types of movies. And I don't mind being sexy – if it's a character with a back story and an arc and something progresses."

Of posing for the magazine, Fox says: “I am very excited to be involved with GQ, as it is such a great magazine.”

Fox, meanwhile, is also on the cover of Maxim, but her reps say the magazine proceeded without her cooperation, purchasing older photos that already have run in other magazines.

A Maxim rep says: "Megan Fox is a talented actor and a favorite of our 13 million readers and we're pleased to recognize her accomplishments in the October issue with this beautiful photo portfolio."

Pink Floyd Member Richard Wright Died Today

Rock band Pink Floyd founding member, Richard Wright, died at the age of 65, the band's spokesman said. Wright, who played the keyboard, passed away on Monday at his home in Britain after a battle with cancer, reports the Associated Press.

Wright, who wrote Pink Floyd successful songs like, "The Great Gig in the Sky" and "The Dark Side of the Moon," met band mates Roger Waters and Nick Mason in college and joined their group, Sigma 6, which eventually became Pink Floyd.

The band went on to sell over 200 million albums worldwide. Wright, who left the group in the early '80s, rejoined in 1987 for the album A Momentary Lapse of Reason; the band recorded one more studio album, The Division Bell, before ceasing touring.

The original members reunited in 2005 for the Live 8 concert in London.

Lance Armstrong Tour De France Champion - But No Champion On Bed

All-time cycling champion and a hit with the ladies, Lance Armstrong confesses he hasn't always been a superstar in the Tour De Bedroom.

"If you are riding your bike five, six, seven hours a day, you are not a sex champion," he tells Men's Journal in its October issue. "You have fatigue, low testosterone and a lower libido," he says matter-of-factly, "but you know, I never got any complaints."

The record-breaking athlete conquered testicular cancer and won seven consecutive Tour de France victories before retiring in 2005 and has dated Sheryl Crow, Tory Burch and, more recently, Kate Hudson since his 2003 divorce from his wife of five years (and mother of their three children), Kristin.

But right now, he's single and enjoying every minute of it.

"I'm a 36-year-old single guy who is completely open and honest with every woman in my life," says Armstrong. "As long as you're honest, and no one's getting played or let down, then you're being fair."

And while he says dating is tough, he relies on friends to introduce him to potential girlfriends. "It's hard for me to call someone up and say, 'Hey, can I take you on a date?'" he says. "It's never like that. I meet people casually, hanging out with friends, so there's less pressure."
