(Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP) LOS ANGELES (AP) — At 78-years-old Diahann Carroll keeps a sense of humor. “I don’t think I realize what the passage of time really means until people talk about things that I did in the ’50s and I wonder ‘Who the hell are they talking about?,'” the actress, singer and Golden Globe-winner said while being honored at a House of Flowers dinner last Saturday evening. Beverly Johnson, Angela Bassett, Regina King and Anika Noni Rose were in attendance to applaud Carroll and fellow honoree Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the first African American president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

(Photo by Dan Steinberg/Invision/AP) by David BauderAP Television Writer The Emmys lived up to its reputation as the least predictable entertainment awards show. Television’s annual night of honors, where the AMC drama “Breaking Bad” and ABC comedy “Modern Family” were judged the industry’s finest on Sunday night, mixed in surprises with expected winners, and ended some winning streaks while extending others. Newcomer Netflix made its presence felt, but not in the splashy way it had hoped for. “Nobody in America is winning their office pool,” host Neil Patrick Harris said late in the CBS telecast from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
