2012 Emmy Awards

Last night, the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards were held in LA at the Nokia Theatre. Refreshingly, there were more fabulous fashions on display than not-so-fabulous. In fact, even the looks I “disliked” most of them aren’t even that bad; they just fell short of the bests.

I was a bit upset by some of the snubs tonight. Particularly Mad Men, which is one of my all-time favorite series and Sherlock, which I absolutely adore.

AMC’s Mad Men won Best Drama Series for the last four years. Homeland beat them for the award this year but what was more disappointing were the individuals nominated for their amazing performances and losing (to other fantastic performances). This was the first year that John Hamm was not up against Bryan Cranston (who has stollen the award several years in a row now) for Best Male Lead in a Drama; the award went to Damian Lewis for his performance in Homeland.

Sherlock was nominated for 13 awards this year including: Outstanding Miniseries or Movie, Lead Actor in a Mini-Series (Benedict Cumberbatch) Supporting Actor in a Mini-Series (Martin Freeman) and Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special (Steven Moffat). They ended the night with absolutely zero awards. The Julianne Moore, Sarah Palin series Game Change took most of the awards in the Mini-Series category. I didn’t see it but Sarah Palin is no longer interesting nor has it been long enough for us to want to look back on her moment in the spotlight so I’m not sure why anyone really cared about this series. I’m sure it’s fabulous (and must be for winning all those awards) but come on… it’s Sherlock.

Homeland was a big winner in the Drama category and I do love that show.I’m eagerly awaiting the new season that premiers next week along with Dexter!

Claire Danes and Damien Lewis are both so amazing on this show and their talent was definitely acknowledged when they were awarded Male and Female Lead in a Drama.

I was pretty stoked that Louis CK won as many awards as he did tonight. He’s awesome and his shows are fantastic so I was really happy to see him winning… a lot. I was also super happy that Dame Maggie Smith won for Supporting Actress in a Drama (Downton Abbey). She is one of my heroes. I love everything this woman does.

BUT my favorite part is always the fashion. Its super late (or super early) and I have a rather exciting day ahead of me so I’m going to get to it.

One big trend I noticed on the red carpet this year was yellow.

(The New Girl’s) Hannah Simone, (Homeland’s) Claire Danes *winner* in Lanvin and (Modern Family’s) Julie Bowen *winner* are all good examples of wearing this trend very, VERY well.

 However (Game Change’s) Julianne Moore’s *winner* Christian Dior gown was pretty gross looking. Its all coverage. And (The Big Bang Theory’s) Kaley Cuoco in Angel Sanchez fell short as well. This is one of the looks I mentioned that really is that bad but after much deliberation and staring, I thought it was less than the best.

The ladies of Mad Men are a toss up each red carpet. However it’s always the same offenders and the same glam-queens that wear the bests and the worsts.

Christina Hendricks looked amazing in Christian Siriano as did Jessica Pare in (one of my favorite designers) Jason Wu.

But January Jones in Zac Posen and Elizabeth Moss in Dolce & Gabbana both look terrible and they usually do. I’m convinced January Jones is bat-shit crazy. She has to be.

Two rather well-dress couples were John Hamm and his wife Jennifer Westfeldt, who normally looks pretty sloppy, especially next to her pretty husband.

Also, the impeccable Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria Thomas.

Ok. Here’s some of my favorite looks; my “Best Dressed” list

1.) The New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel in Reem Acra – I couldn’t decide for a bit whether I hated or loved this gown. I ultimately decided I love it; messy, sloppy constructed skirt and all. 2.) Once Upon a Time’s Ginniger Godwin in Monique Lhuillier. 3.) Nashville’s Hayden Panettiere in Marchesa (one of my favorite gowns of the night!)

1.) Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vouthier Couture. 2.) Suburgatory’s Jane Levy in Pamella Poland. 3.) Julianne Hough. I think I love this gown mostly for the color. It gorgeous!

1.) Leslie Mann in Naeem Khan (God, how I adore this woman!) I love how her teal jewelry pops against the neutral and orange gown. 2.) Revenge’s Emily Vancamp in J Mendel (another favorite designer of mine). 3.) The Beast’s Lindsay Pulsipher. My readers know that the greek goddess look is my all-time favorite look. This is flawlessly executed.

1.) Veep’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Vera Wang 2.) Kristen Wiig in Balenciaga. IDK how she ended up on my best list, but she did. I love this look. 3.) Two Broke Girls’ Kat Dennings in J. Mendel.

1.) Julianna Rancic in Romona Keveza. 2.) American Horror Story’s Lily Rabe in Tadashi Shoji (LOVE THIS GOWN!!!) 3.) Homeland’s Morena Baccarin

But with the good, comes bad (and really not that bad):

1.) Nurse Jackie’s Edie Falco in Stella McCartney – Edie is looking rough. 2.) Nicole Kidman in Antonio Berardi – this dress isn’t horrible, but it’s not great and I’ve definitely seen my girl Nicole do a hell of a lot better. 2.) Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke went for the white with a splash of color like Nicole, but she looks even worse.

1.) Sofia Vegara in Suhair Murad – This mermaid look isn’t done very well. The gown is a bit pageanty if the pageant girl were totally slutty. 2.) Parks and Recreation’s Amy Poehler looks frumpy in her Stella McCartney gown. Amy is amazing but she looks like an awkward girl at junior prom in a dress bought at Sears. 3.) Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli looks dreadful. 2010 called, they want their pockets on a ballgown back and this print in disgusting.

1.) Mayim Bialik obviously learned nothing from Stacy and Clinton on What Not To Wear because this is hideous. It’s also Pamella Roland. But Mayim is a freaking rocket scientist or something (for real-real, not just for play-play) so who cares. She can wear sweatpants to the emmys if she wants. 2.) Ashley Judd is my pick for absolute worst dressed in this nauseating Carolina Herrera gown. eck. 3.) Brooke Burke – what a joke. How is this woman even still relevant. The gown looks like she is competing in the Miss Teen USA pageant.

Ok. It’s almost 5:30am. I have to get to sleep. Heres a full list of the night’s nominees and winners below. Excuse my typos… I’ll try to remember to come back an edit if necessary.

Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll check out my next red carpet/awards show post! (And all my other post, of course!) Love, GK

2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards

18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

Tonight was the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony. The SAG awards are my absolute FAVORITE! I’ve always said that I would love winning a SAG award even more than winning an Academy Award. Mostly, because I know how much actors are pompous assh*les and if they can pause their own ego for a minute to pump up my ego and recognize me as being awesome, that’s an honor.

Most years, I spend the entire opening crying melodramatically, touched by actor’s story that always ends with “… and I’m an actor.”, dramatically saying through my sobs “I’m an actor!”. But this year… no tears. I was sadistically looking forward to it too! I don’t know if it was the actors who were chosen to speak or maybe their stories just sucked (none of them particularly stand out to me even now writing this) regardless, I wasn’t touched god damnit.

But my favorite part of every award show is, of course, as you know, the red carpet fashions. So let’s get to it.

My Personal Favorites:

Emma Stone - Alexander McQueen

I absolutely love Emma Stone and every time she shows up on a red carpet she looks absolutely amazing! This look is no different. And look at the handbag!!! She looks age appropriate and totally classic all at the same time.

Jayma Mays - Reem Acra

Jayma Mays was on A LOT of Worst Dressed lists but I think she looks adorable! The simple and cute ponytail and the beautiful detail on the back…it’s all beautiful!

Michelle Williams - Valentino

I love Michelle Williams more and more every time I see her. I thought she looked fabulous tonight!

Diane Lane (& Josh Brolin)

I loved everything about Diane Lane‘s look tonight. The color is beautiful and another woman who rocked a ponytail tonight!

Best Dressed

Jennifer Carpenter, Emily Blunt, Zoe Saldana, Viola Davis

Jennifer Carpenter looked gorg in Emilio Pucci. Emily Blunt, who is listed on a lot of worst dressed lists for this one, in Oscar de la Renta. I personally think it would’ve looked way better if she still had her ginger locks. Zoe Saldana, in Givenchy, looked so crisp and original. I couldn’t decide at first whether I liked it or not but after seeing it move on her down the red carpet, I became a fan. Viola Davis looked absolutely amazing in Marchesa and it’s a good thing too because Viola was one of the night’s big winners.

Kyra Sedgwick, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney, Stacy Keibler

Kyra Sedgwick usually doesn’t really appear on my personal radar during these things but she looked incredible tonight! She wore Emilio Pucci. Angelina Jolie looked great as well in Jenny Pachham. Now, I chose to place Ms.Jolie right next to Brad’s best bud, George Clooney and his current girlfriend Stacy Keibler because apparently, Angelina can’t stand Stacy. The story goes that Stacy made some public joke about how having to stare at Brad all the time wouldn’t be so bad and apparently Angelia Jolie goes nuts whenever anyone mentions how attractive Brad is or anything of that nature… if that’s true, that’s just another reason to be annoyed with Angelina Jolie… Angelina, even men say that Brad Pitt is a damn attractive man… he’s Brad Pitt. -Off Topic- Stacy Keibler was one of my favorite looks of the night and for someone so cheesy, I have to say she looks gorgeous at these events.

And now… here it comes…

Worst Dressed

Kristen Wiig

I can’t stand Kristen Wiig. I absolutely can not stand her. I would love to give her credit for once for this great gown but she paired it with this disgusting dog collar (which is quite appropriate when you check out her face. Woof.) way to ruin a good thing Kristen, as usual.

Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele, Ashlee Simpson

Kaley Cucoco – What, the f*ck, were you thinking? Lea Michele – Who, the f*ck, do you think you are? Ashlee Simpson – Why, the f*ck, are you here? (Great look though… but still)

Rose Byrne, Shailene Woodley, Mya Rudolph, Ellie Kemper, Emilia Clarke

Rose Byrne (in Elie Saab) – You are not Michelle Pfeiffer. This is not Scarface. I love the choice of a pants suit but this looks kind of ridiculous. Shailene Woodley (in L’Wren Scott) – You’re not in Hawaii anymore. Nor are you winning the Jimmy Buffet Lifetime Achievement Award. Mya Rudolph – You’re lucky you’re so incredibly hysterical. This isn’t a laughing matter though. You look horrid. Ellie Kemper – I LOVE this color, especially on her, but there is something about this that I absolutely hate. I don’t know, maybe I’m jumping the gun. Maybe I love this and I don’t know it yet. I’m pretty sure I hate it though. -HUGE SIDE NOTE- Apparently, John Sexy-Ass Hamm was Ellie’s high school drama teacher. … … … yeah. I can tell you that if John Hamm were my anything teacher in high school, I totally would’ve showed up to high school. Anyway… Emilia Clarke – I love parts of this dress but on the hole (I wish John Hamm would get on my hole) I don’t like it. … … … Sorry… I’m still thinking about John Hamm.

Ok, I have to get something off my chest. Every flipping time I listen to Modern Family’s Julie Bowen and Sarah Hyland speak, I cridge. Both of these women give the worst, most snotty, interviews. If they aren’t thinking it, they are definitely giving off a “I think I’m superior to all of you” vibe. Both of them just piss me off… I don’t watch the show and I’m sure it’s as amazing as everyone says it is but I also doubt that either of these people are the reason for the success or fandom. Take it easy ladies.

Sarah Hyland and Julie Bowen, afflicted with the horrible disease of bitch-face.

Ok, enough hateration. Let’s see who took home those amazing little actor awards. And this little girl’s dream, is to one day hold one of my very own.

2012 Golden Globe Awards

Ricky Gervais hosted the 2012 Golden Globe Awards tonight in spite of or beacuse of all the headlines he made last year with his jabs at all of Hollywood’s elite. I love Ricky and was disappointed at how infrequently throughout the show that he was actually allowed to speak. Is it really considered hosting if you only make an appearance on stage once every hour?

Host of the 2012 Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais

Tonight’s Golden Globe awards provided some AMAZING looks and some awkward moments. In fact one of the most awkward things to happen started during E! New’s red carpet coveage, where Fashion Police’s Kelly Osbourne kept insisting how much Sophia Vergara’s dress looked like hers…. I’ll let you decide, but I’m sure you’ll come to the same conclision as I did…. Yeah, poor Kelly.

Sophia looks amazing!!! and so does Betty White!

Lets start with my favorite looks from the Red Carpet and to begin, The Best Looking Gingers.

Emma Stone - One of my favorite gingers and one of my favorite looks from the evening.

Nicole Kidman

Debra Messing

Julianne Moore - I wouldve liked this even more if it didn't have the frill in the middle. Also, absolutely love the green earrings!!!

Here are the other looks of the evening that I absolutely loved:

Zooey Deschanel - This was my absolute favorite look of the night! Plus, I am a huge fan of fun fingernails and Zooey's were painted like little tuxedos!

Evan Rachel Wood - I loved her feathery frock!

Reese Witherspoon

Angelina Jolie - LOVE the pops of red. Hated all the pretentiousness on the red carpet.

Charlize Theron

Kate Beckinsale

Other Great Looks:

Claire Danes and Heidi Klum both looked fabulous!

Mila Kunis, Jessica Alba, Kate Winselt, Sophia Veragara

Rooney Mara, Kristen Wiig - even though I cant stand her, Nicole Richie - not sure why she was there though, Selma Hayek

But the ladies were not alone in the Best Looks department. Here are, who I think, were the best dressed men of the evening… it doesn’t have a lot to do with what they wore either.

Ewan Gregor - that fine piece of scottish a.., Zachary Levi - the sweet piece I only recently noticed, now I'm in love. Johnny Depp - loved the emerald green vest and pocket watch with matching green face!, Elton John and David Furnish, Leonardo DiCaprio

…. and the worst looks:

1.) Jessica Beil - she must have been so excited about her recent engagement to Justin Timberlake (and who wouldnt be?) that she time traveled back to 1902 to pick out her wedding dress.I'm just not sure why she's wearing it to the Golden Globes. 2.) Kelly MacDonald - you are amazing on Boardwalk Empire. You just look awful though. 3.) Emily Gould - Homeland's housewife... why are you dressed like a call girl brought on a trip to Monte Carlo? 4.) Missi Pyle - ??? when did you start doing real movies?

1.) Busy Philips... I can't even begin right now. 2.) Sarah Michelle Gellar and Piper Perabo - what, the f*ck, whereyou guys thinking? 3.) Connie Britton - this is a dressy kind of occasion. you shoulve rsvp'ed no to the bbq you came from before you arrived if you weren't going to have time to change.

1.) Julie Bowen - not only do you look horrible, but you annoy me, a lot. 2.) Laura Linney - this is ugly. 3.) Natalie Portman - too plain. 4.) Tina Fey - I love you so much. Why the puffy hair and ugly gown?

Madonna didn't look as gross and dead as she usualy does, so that good I guess. But the one glove and cheap-looking chunky cross necklace just made the dress look worse.

Sharon!? Why???I love you so much. I adore you... what is this?

On with the show……

One of the first shots which led to one of my first thoughts of the show was “Look how amazing Nicole Kidman and Harrison Ford look together. Must better than her shrimpy little husband and his girlfriend… whats her name?

Here come the awkward moments… Johnny Depp can make most moments awkward (and yet still so sexy) but this was uber weird.

Whats worse than Adam Levine behind a mic? Jimmy Fallon behind the same mic. I absolutely can not stand either of these guys and NBC thought it would be just fab to stick them on stage together. Jimmy was clearly auditioning for next year’s hosting job and doing what he does best: not be funny.

Here are some of the night’s winners:

Claire Danes and Kate Winslet both picked up awards.

George Clooney with his beautiful girlfriend for the year Stacey Keibler and Michelle Williams

Homeland, a show I LOVE, won for Best TV Drama.

Morgan Freeman was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievment award by Dame Helen Mirren and Sydney Poitier

I must include this little gem from Morgan’s time spent on The Electric Company.

some not so surprising winners: Steven Speilberg and Meryl Street (who at least pretended to be shocked and then admitted she had a speech prepared when she realized she forgot her glasses.)

Lots of great fashion! Lots of semi-good talent! Some deserved awards. Lots of awkward moments and a crap-load of photo-bombing… did anyone else notice? Celebs were creeping into each others camera time all through the night… it was hilarious.

If you follow me on twitter, then you know how much I love a good excuse to live tweet all my nastey little opnions of red carpet coverage, award shows and other big events. Follow me and read them all next time! @xGingerKate
