The stars were out last night for the Emmys. Many of them were nominated for shows that had been canceled or “put to rest” and did not even attempt to hide their bitterness. They complained about the heat, and yet dressed for fall. There were catfights, overdue wins, upsets, and of course hillarious moments!
Here are my highlights:
Conan was on…thank god, because the majority of the show was pretty boring… I love Conan, his opening number was one of the best.
The Best Sport:
Conan announced that Bob Newhart’s air supply would be exhausted if the show crossed the three-hour mark…I thought this was one of the best gags…it probably wasted more time than anything, but it was funny & I love Bob Newhart I think he is the cutest old man…I was also a big fan of his reoccuring role on ER….
BEST ON SCREEN DUO goes to:
COLBERT & Jon Stewart, obviously the highlight of the night. They are hysterical and I love them.
WTF MOMENT OF THE NIGHT:
Barry Manilow beats out Stephen Colbert, Craig Ferguson, David Letterman, and Hugh Jackman for an emmy…an emmy he is using as a good luck charm when he undergoes hip surgery today. BARRY: TMI! …COLBERT WAS ROBBED!!!!
BEST ACCEPTANCE SPEECH GOES TO:
Katherine Heigl goes for head to toe old hollywood glamour in a gorgeous Escada gown. She wins, solely because she didn’t wear purple.
Evangeline Lilly in a purple strapless Versace gown. the cut of this dress was perfect for her, her hair long & wavy, jewelry subdued. she looked perfect on the carpet & on stage.
Heidi Klum in Michael Kors…loved the color & she wins for best hair
portia de rossi in zac posen…love the red accents…perfect for fall
eva longoria when for a white cocktail length dress…she could look good in anything.
Debra Messing in a white tiered Alberta Ferretti gown, she looked great
Sarah Chalke looked amazing in this ivory lace by Louisa Beccaria.
Calista Flockhart in Grecian-inspired Derek Lam
mariska harigtay…i loved her hair and she has that post pregnancy glow… i love that her dress was full of detail and hugged her new figure…she is one hot mama!!
JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS in black and white Narciso Rodriguez …keeping it simple, & was incredibly flattering on her
love this dress…jaime looks great…she is usually hit or miss but this flaunts her killer body and the color works for her.
Kyra Sedgwick in a Giorgio Armani Privé gown
i can’t decide if i like this…i don’t like the poufyness…i do like the color…
wow tyra…love this Georges Chakra dress. too bad i can’t stand her.
leah…looking great in the color of the night
Jennifer Love Hewitt in a silver Collette Dinnigan dress. don’t like her hair…but then again it is fake.
ellen pompeo in John Galliano for Christian Dior
her hair, her dress, gross. i hate it.
oh how jessica simpson must be laughing now…what was vanessa thinking with this blue number…
Sandra Oh in Vera Wang. the ruffles are too much and she should have skipped the necklace all together. She should have kept it sleek & simple…like her hair.
she looks like a couch in this dress…the length looks soo sloppy…it just isn’t flattering on her. i do however like the plunging neckline & purple sash
paula abdul is on drugs again
steve carell and his wifey nancy…oh he is just too cute, he looked fab
patrick dempsey always looks great but he looked a bit awkward in his bow tie
jeremey piven went for a dotted ascot…he brought his mom as a date. how cute. i love that he tried to do something different…the women should take note.
