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

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

Taraji, Terrence, but No Mo’Nique

Taraji P. Henson is on an absolute tear with Cookie – and she should be. She’s proud of her work, proud of her career, proud of the doors Empire will open. Did you see Taraji jump when Viola’s name was announced? She was thrilled. And she stood up, encouraging Viola through her speech. Full Story

Emmy Quiet – Mindy Kaling Edition

Here’s an example of what I mean about the quiet Emmys that it was.  Mindy Kaling was wearing probably the most flattering awards show dress I’ve seen her wear.  She looked great and she seemed comfortable. One of my favourite moments of the night was watching her whisper with Jon Stewart the whole time he was supposed to be listening to whomever was accepting the award for The Daily Show. Full Story

Peter Dinklage won his second Emmy for portraying Tyrion Lannister last night, a win that encapsulates my problem with the Emmys—oh yeah, I have a problem with the Emmys. My problem is this: The same shows win every year. And once something starts winning, it tends to turn into a juggernaut and win every year for a whole bunch of years regardless of whether or not it’s actually still the best thing on TV. Full Story

Claire Danes has Emmy Armor

Much was made of the chains on Claire Danes’ dress. MUCH.  I feel like all the Seacrest interviews went by in a blur of them checking out his jacket designed by him anyway, but it was so clear that he didn’t have much to say about Homeland by the amount of time he spent on the chains. Full Story

Stand Up Straight at the Emmys, Emma Roberts

Scream Queens is getting great advance buzz from critics, so I guess Emma Roberts will become a thing. Or more of a thing, depending on your perspective. Judging by her presence at the Emmys, she definitely doesn’t have her aunt Julia’s penchant for stealing the spotlight when presenting an award. Full Story

Most Relaxed Emmy Host – Andy Samberg

I’ve looked around, and I can’t find a really strong anti-67th Emmys faction, even among all the complainers on Twitter (who I am proud to call my brethren).  Don’t get me wrong, there are still people frustrated with the show, with the winners, or the lack thereof, but the show itself wasn’t offensive as in some years, nor was it a disaster. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Our original beagle, Marcus, was released from hospital yesterday. He spent some time sunbathing on the deck, napping in all his favourite places, he ate some chicken drumsticks, and a lot of peanut butter. Our boy Iived like a boss and he went out like a boss. Seriously. He was licking peanut butter off my finger the moment he left us.

Twelve years ago, LaineyGossip started as a newsletter. That's also when Marcus was born. He's a first class gossip. In his honour, the blog is dark today.

Thank you SO MUCH for all your messages and tweets. Many of you have been reading this site a long time and I can't tell you how much we appreciate your support. I'm sorry for checking out early yesterday and for the interruption to your gossip schedule. It will be back soon.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
