Been waiting for a chance to tell you how excited I am about How To Get Away With Murder. Viola Davis is coming to Thursday night television! Spouting sexy legal phrases and kicking our asses in great leather zip-up jackets and heels! They’re saying the show is quick and requires an attention span – that is, you might miss something if you’re tweeting during a scene. Full Story

You know she's kicking herself for showing up. That is a dress choice and hand-painted highlights and probably a custom-blended lipstick shade, all for Erin Brockovich herself, and then she didn’t win?  There are no shots of her holding the trophy with that smile. They basically sold this entire Emmy broadcast on the promise of that shot. Full Story

Woody Harrelson wore it best last night. I either forgot or never knew in the first place that he could do clothes. But when he walked out my first thought was oh hey now Woody can wear the sh-t out of a pair of pants. Please. The right answer here is that you would totally have sex with Woody Harrelson before Adam Levine. Full Story

Really don’t understand her devotion to these shoes. They’re SO low classy. But Kate Mara wore them last year at the Emmys – click here for a refresher – and she’s doing it again this year with a different strap. Toes get squished together in heels, we know. Full Story

Lena Dunham, Allison Williams: Emmys Best Girl, Worst Girl

Lena Dunham looked awesome. There are all kinds of caveats and I could list them, but they’re personal. I don’t personally like white shirts and I don’t personally love pink. Not the point. She looked awesome because she decided to try on a look and, unlike in previous years, she seemed, in her face and makeup, to give it about exactly as much sort of gravity as it deserved. Full Story

Not enough Idris

I don’t know if it was because of the Monday traffic or the fact that people are stupid and I hate them, but I can only find, like, 5 shots of Idris Elba at the Emmys. Kaley Cuoco? No problem. She probably got there at noon. Idris Elba? Who was a nominee? Idris Elba? Who is everything for everyone? Less than 10. Full Story

Sarah Silverman: Best Emmy Win

Because she actually, honest-to-goodness didn’t expect it. I like that. She’s such an outlier that she wouldn’t bet on herself, out of a sheer desire not to lose a bet. That’s cool, and so the win and the speech – despite the molecule business – talked to me. But I was surprised at the mushy bit about Michael Sheen. Full Story

All the Sherlocks are cupping each other today over Benedict Cumberbatch’s win. And I got yelled at for saying on the liveblog that I don’t live in a world where Benedict Cumberbatch > Mark Ruffalo. Sorry. The show is fiiiiiiiine. I just don’t have the acquired taste. And if Mark Ruffalo’s part of that conversation, that’s the only flavour I’m interested in. Full Story

What a great black dress. The one shoulder on the same side as the hitched hem. The pleats on the same hip. And it’s ribbed. Perfect combination of modern and classic for a ball gown, right? That makes it a design achievement then, right? Because here’s a woman with an edge. And she found a dress that respects the edge without having to go all the way outside the box. Full Story

Julie Bowen: Emmys Most Improved

It’s not yellow taffeta. It’s maybe the best dress that Julie Bowen’s ever worn to an award show. And I do like how the flowers are blurring. In fact, the more I look at it, the more I’m appreciating it. Enough to make me forget about how I had to yell at her when Modern Family won for Best Comedy? Let me show you why. Full Story

The Emmys mostly sucked. But it gave us something really, really great. Something we can all get hard over… Cary Joji Fukunaga. Christ Jesus, he’s hot. This is by design. He’s Jason Momoa without the grunts. He’s K-Pop without the hair perm. A model with a brain. And he’s been on this site before, back in 2011, when he was dating Michelle Williams, remember?
