I really had to hold my breath for a second to think of what Tina Fey’s dress reminded me of. The image sprang into my head immediately but I had to wait for it to sort of self-locate, because it was so specific. Ready? There is a part in the book, not the movie, ‘Circle of Friends’, where the character Benny buys a dress for a dance but her parents are going to see it, so her friend makes her a ‘pleated modesty vest’ so that the parents won’t freak out. Full Story

As I previously mentioned, I have a hard time with the Emmys. If Game of Thrones illustrates the television academy’s slow-on-the-uptake ways, then nothing better captures the essence of “Emmy fatigue” than Julia Louis-Dreyfus. JLD won her sixth Emmy as an actress in a comedy series, of which four are for Veep. Full Story

I have this bad feeling about what happened to Amy Poehler. Sarah and Maria have had various takes on the concept of people who win over and over again, and I pointed out that Claire Danes has nomination ennui.  But Amy – Amy is not the same as some of those people. For example, she’s got a million jobs. Full Story

Elisabeth Moss, Emmy Barbie?

Looking up pictures of Elisabeth Moss’s magenta dress, one outlet described her look as Barbie-esque. Um, Elisabeth Moss doesn’t look anything like a Barbie, and I certainly don’t think she’s trying to. Yes , her dress is bright pink, her hair is blonde and she has blue eyes. Full Story

What would happen if I didn’t evangelize at all in this article?  What if you told me that you probably already know what I’m going to say, and we just talked about her suit? Let’s try. I loved that suit, but I think it’s emblematic of the reason why Emmy voters don’t go Maslany’s way – at least not yet. Full Story

Jon Stewart’s Farewell Emmys

Here is another case of the Emmys making themselves irrelevant by giving trophies to the same people over and over. I get it—Jon Stewart’s tenure at The Daily Show is over, and his wins for Outstanding Writing in a Variety Series and Outstanding Variety Series are his send-off from the television academy. Full Story

You know how we’re told that dresses are passed around at awards show seasons the same way songs are? Like the dress - or song – meant for person A winds up with person B or C If A rejects it? Who is selling the prom dresses? Those wee tiny bodice with MASSIVE BALLROOM SKIRT dresses, that remind me of every movie in the 80s where the rich kids were the worst? The prime example here of course, is Tracee Ellis Ross. Full Story

Allison Janney, Emmy Overachiever

I was saying to Duana and Sarah how unshiny I think the Emmys are. Part of that is because there is simply too much TV to watch, so getting super excited about one thing is impossible. Game of Thrones is great and is a juggernaut and it can win a million Emmys or none and, as a fan, I don’t care. Full Story

Whaaaaat…is this dress? I mean, I can’t help laughing over this. It’s short, it’s at least two fabrics, it’s kind of a slimmer line in the front than it is in the back, where it wafts out all Fairy princess, slash your great-aunt’s curtains from the 80s. It’s got a pocket, but either it’s so far down or the dress is sliding down such that she has to streeeeeeetch to get her hand into the pocket. Full Story

Emmys nothing to give: Frances McDormand

Frances McDormand won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries/Movie for Olive Kitteridge, which gives her a TOE (Tony-Oscar-Emmy). This is a not insignificant achievement, and as icing on her cake, Kitteridge also won a boatload of other Emmys, including ones for writing, directing, lead and supporting acting for Richard Jenkins and Bill Murray, respectively, and Outstanding Limited Series. Full Story

Let’s get one thing straight, right off the top. If you have to ask someone how to pronounce their name before you say it out loud? That’s what we call ‘common courtesy’. It is not notable enough to announce to the world on a live broadcast, as though the fact that the name was hard for you, Jamie Lee, is notable. Full Story
