If you’ve never watched an episode of Game of Thrones, you still have to appreciate the cuteness of these two. They’ve grown up together in the spotlight of this ridiculous behemoth of a show, and despite the fact that, as far as I can tell, they haven’t had a scene together in about five years, they seem to be cute friends-slash-sisters, to the point where they even got matching tattoos of the date they first got the call that they were cast. Full Story

All the photos I saw of Kit Harington before the show, on the carpet, were of him making his squinty-eye, brooding face, also known as his Jon Snow face. So it was going to be that kind of night. I thought…wrong. Full Story

I don’t love this dress on Viola Davis, but I’m always grading on a curve for people who wear colour. Still, this one feels a lot more prom-y than some of the showstoppers she’s worn before. Full Story

Do we know why…? I read an article that was like “Here’s why John Mayer was at the Emmys…he was part of the house band!” Yeah, thanks. But whyyyyy was he in the house band? Did he write the music? Did he just want a semi-anonymous gig to, like, try out a new guitar? Did he know that I had to work really hard to determine whether or not he and Mandy Moore had yet had an opportunity to have an ill-advised romantic encounter? When we talked after the show tonight, Lainey commented “It was a good show,” and I sort of mentally shrugged, because no matter how much they strive to entertain us, the reality of these shows is there’s not-unpleasant tedium. Full Story

I will never not complain about taffeta at an award show. Unless it’s the People’s Choice Awards. And Kaley Cuoco is wearing it. Because that’s where taffeta belongs. But at the Emmys? On Regina King Full Story

I am not mad at it. (Lainey: me neither.) If you are, let’s take a second. What are you mad at, exactly? Here’s what I love about this amazingly ballsy dress: it’s not trying to be something else. It’s not like “Oh, but no, I am a sleek and wonderful chemise!” Not that there’s anything wrong with that look, it’s just this isn’t that. Full Story

Every so often I check to see if I still feel an unusual kinship with Minnie Driver, and the answer is yes. This is based on not much besides similar colouring, an outspoken-ness that sometimes doesn’t come out right, and secret ringlets that haven’t seen the light of day unchecked in over a decade. Full Story

This dress on Constance Wu was even better on television. The way it moved, the way the shimmer in the material caught the light, the effect was gorgeous. I need someone to create a nail polish in exactly this print. Full Story

We all know it’s coming. The wages for being universally popular all at once are that you will then get a wave of backlash and unpopularity all at once. This, of course, is directly proportionate to the number and breadth of high-profile people who say they love you. Not that I don’t love Carpool Karaoke, because I do, but after the Tonys and everything else, I would hope I’d be shocked and delighted that there was a Carpool Karaoke bit, not just satisfied that I was right to assume there would be. Full Story
