2011 Primetime Emmys Live Coverage and Contest

The 2011 Primetime Emmys are almost upon us and the TVOvermind crew is gearing up to bring you live blogging, tweeting, and facebooking throughout the event. Here’s what we have in store:

First, Editor in Chief Jon Lachonis will be manning the TVOvermind Twitter and Facebook Page giving live feedback throughout the evening on the winners, the losers, and the snubbed. I’ll also be keeping a keen eye out for any occurrences of new Dharma logos or LOST number cameos.

On TVOvermind.com proper, Managing Editor Clarissa will be live blogging the event and maintaining the perpetual 2011 Primetime Emmy winners list. We’re also prepping a 2011 Emmy ticker that will bring together the top names in TV Entertainment news live in one place.

And the winner is … YOU!

But just bringing you the latest news on the winners and losers isn’t all we’ll be doing to celebrate the 2011 Primetime Emmys, we’re also going to be giving away current season DVD sets, along with some surprise schwag, for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama/Comedy, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama/Comedy, Outstanding Comedy Series, and Outstanding Drama.
