QUICKQUOTE: JESSE TYLER FERGUSON
“It’s so warm I thought a nice flannel tux would be appropriate.” _ Jesse Tyler Ferguson of “Modern Family” on the Emmy red carpet.
GETTING THE STARS’ ATTENTION
“Jesse Jesse Jesse!” the crowd chants trying to get the attention of “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. He obliges with several waves to the bleacher crowd.
Before the first stream of stars arrived on the Emmy Red Carpet, a show producer told them to “make everything personal” if they wanted to get their attention.
It may take several chants, but the stars often answer with a wave, a smile or the occasional fist pump.

KEEPING COOL IN THE FAN BLEACHERS
Fran and Elmer Armstrong are awards show veterans, joining throngs of fans for at least their sixth Emmy Awards Show on a sweltering Sunday afternoon.
The retired St. Louis couple’s quest for a front row seat in the fan bleachers beside the red carpet began when they lined up outside the Nokia Theatre around 7:30 a.m. Sunday. As the day progressed, and temperatures rose, they hung in there, cheering as the cameras from E! Entertainment television filmed pre-show segments.
“Goodbye Giuliana,” 70-year-old Elmer Armstrong shouted to anchor Giuliana Rancic as the E Entertainment crew wrapped up.
With temperatures topping 90 degrees, he and his 71-year-old wife were like many in the stands _ trying to keep cool with water and wet paper towels. At least this year’s stands are shaded. Elmer Armstrong recalled one year when fans were forced to sit in the blazing sun.
That’s not the only change to this year’s fan seating _ a tall wall keeps fans from glad-handing or even getting autographs from cooperative celebrities.View Entire Story
