How did I just realise that they have the same face? Needless to say, as already noted in other articles and this goes way back to the 80s, I love Martha Plimpton, so it makes me sad to have to point that out. But what’s even more sad is that LeAnn wouldn’t take it for a compliment. She’d be insulted which. Full Story

Best Mediocre into Amazing: Sofia Vergara

On anyone else I wouldn’t have a lot of time for this dress. You’ve seen it before. Many, many times. And it’s red. And I’ve already told you how I feel about red, especially on a red carpet. But Sofia Vergara happens to be wearing it. And Sofia Vergara, well, when she wears things, anything, it automatically becomes a discussion, even though there’s not much to say beyond the fact that the earrings - Colombian emeralds - are lovely and she’s the hottest, funniest sh-t ever, because she never, ever takes it too seriously, and I wondered how Rob Lowe was keeping his badness suppressed when he was up there next to her as we all know there was a time he would not have been able to let that go. Full Story

Written by Duana Oh, I watched this over and over again. It’s so painful – he and Lea Michele are presenting, have a bit of scripted ‘unscripted’ banter, he has the last line with “right” and then moves on with “okay –“, but she can’t help herself. Full Story

Worst Emmy White: Julianna Margulies

She wore a ceramic coffee mug. This is what I called it, even before I rolled my eyes at her win over Connie Britton’s Tami Taylor. Julianna Margulies is the uninspired vote. Because if you’ve had the pleasure of watching Britton on Friday Night Lights, well, you know it would be impossible to award the Emmy to Kyle Chandler without acknowledging her work. Full Story

Best Emmy White: Aubrey Plaza

Remember my hate-on for that annoying girl in Crazy, Stupid, Love? Analeigh Tipton? The over-breather? Click here for a refresher. Tipton goes to the Kristen Stewart school of over-breathing - three times in a short sentence for dramatic effect, which seems to have become the acting hallmark of a generation, and somehow this has translated into a not insignificant amount of interest in her, now being labelled the new “quirky, funny, hot girl” and my answer to that is . Full Story

Worst Dress as an Organism: Heidi Klum

Etalk has sent me on two or three baking shoots. And each time I’ve had to ice a cake. You’re supposed to hold the icing bag and delicately pulse it around in the shape of shells or rosebuds. I suck at it. My sh-t ends up looking like whatever it is growing on Heidi Klum’s dress which, at first, I thought was clumpy cake icing but as the night wore on and as more photos emerged, became something even more terrifying. Full Story

Written by Duana You know I love to sing, right? There’s been enough indication of that here, and anyone who knows me will tell you. Which is why I got so giddy at the Emmytones. Here’s how I think it went down, in my fantasy. Full Story

Emmys Most Miserable: Claire Danes

I feel like whenever I see Claire Danes smile, she doesn’t really mean it. Duana asked the question during the liveblog last night - when was the last time Claire Danes threw her head back and laughed, heartily? If you watched MSCL, you’ll understand the attachment we feel to her. And therefore the disappointment about what happened with Billy Crudup. Full Story

Emmy ex-off: Jennifer Carpenter vs Julia Stiles

Did Michael C Hall actually go the Emmys? I’ve seen photos of him at an after-party but haven’t been able to find pictures of him at the show. Or perhaps I was preoccupied with shots of his ex-wife and his ex-lover dressed in similarly toned gowns. Grey-nude silhouette, hair down and wavy, one more tricked out than the other but overall it’s the same play, giving them even more in common than former lover and co-star. Full Story

So Alec Baldwin was supposed to appear in the opening video. Baldwin made a joke about News Corp and the phone hacking business. The bit was subsequently cut. As such, he decided not to be part of it at all which is why Leonard Nimoy ended up playing the president. (Source Full Story
