I'm not sure if it's my love of acting and the career that never was or just my love of TV in general, but I am always so excited about the Emmy's. It seems so much more relaxed than it's sister show, The Oscars. I was very excited that some of my favorite shows, actors and actresses came out on top.
1. Mad Men won for best Drama Series. Have you seen Mad Men? I looooove it! It's based on a 1960's ad agency in Manhattan. It is fabulous! I highly recommend it. It's one of my favorites.
2. Best Actress in a Dramatic Series went to another fave of mine...Kyra Sedgwick from The Closer. I love her character, Brenda Lee Johnson. She plays a southern detective moved to LA and is Chief of the Special Victim's Unit. Her Southern charm/accent, etc. is very entertaining and she always outsmarts the bad guys.
3. Best Actor in a Comedy Series: Jim Parson from The Big Bang Theory. I love this funny show. He plays Sheldon, a brilliant, yet socially inept scientist. It is funny and I am pretty sure Jim is supposed to have Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. It may not be written that way, but he sure shows the signs. It is brilliantly funny.
4. Temple Grandin. Of course, being the mom of an autistic child, I naturally want to see any and all movies about people with autism. This movie is the story of Temple Grandin. She is a Professor of Animal Science in Colorado and is a leader in the field of animal rights. This movie does a fantastic job of showing how her mind works and how she sees things. It was nominated for 15 awards and won 5, including Best Actress in a TV movie, Claire Danes and Best Supporting Actor in a TV movie, David Strathairn, and Best Supporting Actress in a TV movie, Julia Ormand, and Best Director in a TV movie, Mick Jackson and the award for Best Made for TV Movie.
Now, let's talk Emmy fashion.
Love Eva Longoria Parker's dress. I love all the fabric flowers. So pretty!
Claire Danes looks gorgeous in this elegant beaded dress. I bet it weighs a ton!
I think Amber Riley looks great in this dress. Love the belt showing her waist line and the halter style is slimming on her arms. I think she looks lovely!
Stephanie Pratt. It's a lovely little dress. If you were blessed with great legs, why not show them off. BUT, I do find myself praying she has on underwear. Bend at the knee, honey.
Okay, I try really hard not to talk ugly about other women. I think it's just mean. After all, I'm not a fashion editor and some people have trouble putting their pieces together. After all, I'm terrible with jewelry. But, if I were this lady....I think I might've asked for some help from a stylist.
Seriously? She looks like a little girl playing princess. Bless her heart. She needs Rachel Zoe. I'm sure she is very talented and has a lovely personality. So sorry for being ugly.
Okay, enough of that.
One more thing I have to say. I adore Jimmie Fallon. He is HYSTERICAL. Did you catch the opening number with the cast of Glee, Betty White, Jon Hamm, Tina Fey, Tim Gunn and Kate Gosselin? It's long, but fabulous! Best opening number EVER. Amanda, I thought of you when I was watching this. I know how you love Glee. View it below.
Have a great day!
