Carson wins our award for MVP of the Emmys, ushering winners to the stage four years in a row. Perhaps the Emmys was just a warm-up -- Carson went on to host the Academy Awards five times between 1978-1983. Pictured here is Carson on the first day of what would become 30 influential years as host of "The Tonight Show."
