Kit at the Emmys

It breaks my heart a little at how adorably awkward Kit Harington looks in almost every photo from the Emmys last night. He seemed slightly more comfortable the day before at the BAFTA LA tea party in skinny khakis and a white shirt. I try not to spend too much time thinking about Game of Thrones. It’s maddening. Full Story

Emmy 2011 Worst: Zooey Deschanel

Am I supposed to picture her plucking the petals off of some flower, in a meadow, while her bike leans against a tree, as beams of sunlight filter through her eyelashes and her voice skips across the clouds, carried by the wind... is the picture Zooey Deschanel is conjuring? Because all I want to do is punch the hipster who thinks this would be a good dress for a garden party in the middle of goddamn January as a scene in a screenplay called 10,000 Ways To Find Corduroy Annoying. Full Story

I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I can’t post more photos. I’m sorry that the goddamn photo agencies didn’t bother taking more photos. I’m sorry that Idris Elba, a nominee, wasn’t important enough for them to want to take photos. I’m sorry that the demand for Idris Elba photos is so low that the photographers would rather spend their energies elsewhere. Full Story

Emmy Best Dressed: Evan Rachel Wood

Sasha was right. After I finally had a full length look at it, she was totally right. Evan Rachel Wood’s black beaded amazingness was indeed the best of the night. I’m not saying it could have stood up to the bests of other award nights because, let’s be honest, last night was so much, too much, medium, more medium than we’ve seen in a long time. Full Story

Best FNL Fan: Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm looked bummed out when Mad Men won for Best Drama. Jon Hamm also has a man-crush on Coach Taylor. This is why we love Jon Hamm. Who looked, as usual, very handsome last night. And very chivalrously helped several ladies up on stage. And he loves his lady so much, Jennifer Westfeldt, which is why I wish, I wish so much, she would stop with the nonsense all up in her face. Full Story

Written by Duana Warning: I get emotional in here. If it’s not for you, no prob. Oh, you guys. Unbelievable. What a roller coaster ride if you’re a Britton fan. Of course we all had no hope that they could sweep the four categories they were nominated in. Full Story

First it was Jason Katims for Writing... which... It’s about F-CKING TIME!!!! What? You don’t understand? Because you don’t watch??? Well... I don’t know what else I can say. It’s been declared one of the best shows, if not THE best show, of ALL TIME. And Eric and Tami Taylor the most real marriage on television, like, EVER. Full Story

Best Emmy skin: Katie Holmes

When TIFF was winding last week and several of us sat around comparing notes and gossiping, as we always do after the festival, a few minutes of the conversation was devoted to a certain actress who looked spectacular in photographs, wearing what was truly an inspired dress, but who actually has a serious skin problem which you can see up close. Full Story

Worst Emmy Hair: Elisabeth Moss

September 19, 2011 09:08:02 Posted at September 19, 2011 09:08:02
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Elisabeth Moss was born in 1982. She’s only 29 years old. She’s YOUNGER THAN BRITNEY SPEARS. Now that this has been thrown in your face, it makes her hair last night even more offensive, right? How does a 29 year old girl show up at the Emmys with Allison Janney’s 1960s old lady helmet from The Help? This is the kind of sh-t that makes me so angry. Full Story

Best Emmy Fist Pump: Kate Winslet

I loved that Kate Winslet, who is now just a Tony Award away from EGOT, was so unabashedly happy about winning her Emmy. Maybe it was put on, maybe she was pretending it meant as much to her as the others, but if we have a choice between the two, I’ll take the one that says that she wanted it badly, as anyone would, even Kate Winslet, and when it happened, she wasn’t shy about demonstrating the extent of that want, in the form of a fist pump. Full Story

Worst Hamster Wheel: Julie Bowen

Written by Duana This is a hard one. Of course it is impossible to miss how thin Julie Bowen is. I didn’t hear her on the carpet this time, and she is not one of the people whose magazine profiles I will read while standing in the drugstore but she apparently has a host of excuses for why that is. Full Story
