Red Carpet Video from the ’24’ (Final) Season Wrap Party

24Spoilers.com has a link to video interviews from the 24 series finale wrap party, in which Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Annie Wersching and Leslie Hope dish about their Jack Bauer universe characters. It’s a fun clip, though also a sad reminder that the May 24 series ender is coming up way too quickly. Sigh.

Meanwhile, check out 24Spoilers.com for some other great videos (including a preview of Monday night’s episode that finds Jack at his Jack best in a scene with Jack-wannabe Cole) and some great photos from the aforementioned wrap party in Los Angeles.

When Jack Bauer Met Santa Claus …

WIN THIS: It’s a Very TVScreener.com Christmas 25-Day Giveaway, Day 6: ’24’ Clue

HOORAY! We have our winner:

Jack! (Is that you Jack BAUER?! I kid …). Seriously, Congrats, Jack, and thanks for entering. Your awesome 24 Clue game will be on its way to your mailbox shortly. Enjoy, and thanks again for checking us out at TV Screener.com!

And everyone, keep checking our TVScreener.com Christmas giveaway section … we’ve got lots more TV goodies coming your way!

It’s an inside job! What better way to wile away the last couple of months until 24‘s eighth season premieres (Don’t let it start! Don’t let it start!) than playing Jack Bauer yourself, with the CLUE: 24 edition board game?

The plot: The U.S. is about to be hit by a major attack, and it’s going to originate from inside the CTU office in Los Angeles. Your mission, as board game Jack: Ferret out who your traitorous colleague is from amongst the six agents locked down inside CTU. Jack, the Director of Field Ops, is locked outside, and must communicate with the agents locked inside, via his PDA (that magic Jack PDA!).

Green, Plum, Colonel Mustard and the other suspects in the original Clue game are replaced with Audrey Raines, Bill Buchanan, Chloe O’Brian, Mike Doyle, Nadia Yassir and Tony Almeida in the 24 version, and players have to figure out which one is the mole, what kind of attack is being planned (represented by nine pewter tokens, including an airport tower, a CTU badge, a bus, a power plant, a Wall Street sign and a satellite) and from where in CTU it will originate.

And, thanks to our friends at USAopoly, who also make The Office and Seinfeld Clue games, as well as Seinfeld Monopoly (which we’ll be giving you a chance to win in December!), TVScreener.com has a copy of the 24 Clue game to give away!

And to enter for a chance to win the 24 Clue game, remember:
– Leave a comment on this post, with your name, your favorite 24 season (for me, it’s tough to choose between seasons four and five) and an e-mail address where we can reach you
– Deadline to enter to win the 24 Clue game is November 29 at 8PM ET (according to recorded comment time)
– The winner will be chosen by random, using Random.org’s Random Number Generator
– The winner will be announced on the evening of November 29, as an update to this post

Good luck, 24 fans, and stay tuned for the rest of our It’s a Very TVScreener.com Christmas 25-Day Giveaway!

2009 Emmy Nominations: Lots o’ Surprises

30 Rock with 22 nominations, 99 nods for HBO … big numbers for them at this morning’s 2009 Emmy Awards nominations announcement, but those weren’t the biggest surprises when Grey’s Anatomy star Chandra Wilson and The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons read the list of Emmy contenders.

Among the surprise snubs:
– No Best Drama nod for 24
– No Best Actor in a Drama nod for Kiefer Sutherland (what?!)
– No Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy nod for Jeremy Piven, who won the award last year. Guess people are still really ticked off about that whole mercury poisoning business
– A near shut-out for buzzworthy HBO drama True Blood, which got nominations for title design, casting and art direction … and that’s it

Now, among the surprise, mostly happy surprises, nominees:
Family Guy and Flight of the Conchords for Best Comedy
Big Love and Breaking Bad for Best Drama
Sarah Silverman for Best Actress in a Comedy for The Sarah Silverman Show
Jemaine Clement for Best Actor in a Comedy for Flight of the Conchords
Elisabeth Moss for Best Actress in a Drama for Mad Men (so deserved)
Aaron Paul for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for Breaking Bad (ditto)
– And Jack McBrayer, one of the most delightful guys on TV, for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for 30 Rock

And the nominations that really sum up this year’s contenders: in the Best Writing – Comedy category, four out of five nods went to 30 Rock, while Mad Men snagged four out of five nominations for Best Writing in a Drama.

With some of TV’s more popular – with viewers, not just with critics – shows earning some Emmy nomination recognition this year, it’s clear that the Emmy folk are trying to make sure the telecast fares better than last year’s show, which was the lowest-rated in Emmy history. Having Neil Patrick Harris as host (he’s also a Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy nominee for How I Met Your Mother – yay) is another step towards that, so here’s hoping that the Sept. 20 Emmy telecast will be one worth watching.

So, were your faves nominated? Are you bummed about 24, Kiefer or Piven’s snubs? Anyone or any show you think didn’t deserve the nomination(s) they got? And does NPH as host have you looking forward to the 61st annual Emmys show on Sept. 20?

And now, the rest of the nominees (the complete complete list, including technical awards, is available at Emmys.org)…

Outstanding Comedy Series
30 Rock
Entourage
Family Guy
Flight of the Conchords
How I Met Your Mother
The Office
Weeds
