HOW. DARE. THEY. There are a few things we can count on during award shows: someone is going to say something stupid (looking at you Shailene Woodley), there are going to be well-intentioned, poorly-executed Trump jokes (Melissa McCarthy was RIGHT there), and the wrong person will get the oh-so-rude musical play-off too soon. Full Story

The only tiny downside of the amazing spate of shows that got to fight for acclaim last night is that when everything is this good, not only are the shows themselves not always acknowledged (I was almost able to spare you guys my regular ranting about The Americans), but when you have A+ performance on A+ performance, someone’s got to lose. Full Story

I need a word for the kind of fan you are when you really like something, but you cede the official title of ‘fan’ to someone who lives and breathes it. I watched the Emmys last night and realized I LOVE Laura Dern Full Story

By now, you know how I feel about Chance the Rapper. It probably won’t be a surprise to you that I screamed and threw my phone across my living room when he popped up during the Emmys opening musical number. My consistent reaction to Chance even when I know he’s going to be somewhere is an embarrassing display of pride that I should reserve for my actual family members. Full Story

You know that question we always hear on nights like this when someone shows up and you can’t understand how they do it? “Does so-and-so ever age?!” We have to add Allison Janney to that list, right? Allison Janney not only doesn’t age, she keeps getting better and better. Full Story

I mean, what’s there to complain about here? Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Jane Fonda gave us everything: shock and awe, flopsy and droopy, dildos, a Trump takedown…and BANGS! Let’s get to the bangs in a minute because it turns out there were some people wondering whether or not it’s a thing that Lily Full Story

Gina Rodriguez: Best Effortless Emmy

Gina Rodriguez makes it look easy. Even when presenting with Shemar Moore, who seems like one of those dudes who gets more attention than he’s entitled to no matter what project is happening, she’s charming, cool enough, in a spectacular dress that makes lesser publications think truly terrible ‘Virgin? IDK’ headlines are okay, and in general is a person you’re delighted to see at all of these things without getting sick of. Full Story

There was a lot of shimmering silver on the Emmys red carpet last night. Sarah Paulson wore silver sequins. So did Anna Chlumsky. A few others we’ll get to later. And Laverne Cox. Who wore the sh-t out of her gunmetal silver/grey dress, making the dress better than it deserved to be, really, and came to show off her nails – a new limited edition collaboration with Orly called Celebrate Yourself. Full Story

About two hours into the Emmys last night, Duana wrote this to Kathleen and me on our group chat: “You guys. I’m not bored OR mad. What’s wrong?” It was a good show, non? The sketches were good. The presenters were good. It felt FUN. And, as Duana added, it felt “not canned”. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I had an entirely different open planned for today. And then I woke up at 5am and saw how supported Rihanna was last night at her third annual Diamond Ball. Kendrick Lamar performed (in a great pair of well-tailored black pants).  Read Full Intro
