And the Emmy goes to…

Last night the Emmy Awards were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. He can do no wrong in my eyes and he was fabulously funny. If you missed it, here’s his monologue:

The night’s big winners were Modern Family and Homeland. I guess I’d better see what Homeland is all about. Julie Bowen wore one of my favorite gowns of the evening. A stunning electric yellow green that contrasted perfectly with her skin, not to mention the red carpet. I’m in love with this dress.

I was really hoping to see Jon Hamm take home an award this year. But alas, it’s still not meant to be. And for once, it wasn’t stolen by Bryan Cranston. It went to some guy I don’t know Damian Lewis from Homeland. Claire Danes took home the female role in that category as well. Also wearing a yellow dress. Julianne Moore, too.

While my favorite funny ladies did not win anything, both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler looked glamorous. They’ve both had red carpet blunders in the past, but there were no missteps this time around.

Awards I was not happy about: Jon Cryer’s win for Two and a Half Men. Nothing against Cryer personally, that show is just terrible. The Daily Show winning was a letdown, only because it would be nice to see The Colbert Report win one. And Mad Men won NOTHING. What the hell?

Okay, more fashion. Only Sofia Vergara could pull off this look:

While I no longer support Ginnifer Goodwin’s haircut, I love this dress:

My pick for worst look of the night goes to Girls’ Zosia Mamet. It is weird and unflattering and her severe hair does not help.

I’m leaving you with the finest moment of the evening, the opening. See you next year at the Emmy Awards!

  1. YES you HAVE to watch Homeland!! It’s SO good!! I did like Julie Bowen’s dress too, but didn’t care for the other yellow dresses.

    And holy boobs Amy Poehler! She & Wil Arnett just split up, so maybe she’s showing him what he’s missing. 🙂

    Also, I can’t stand Two & a Half Men either…dumb show!

    Leslie Mann’s dress was to die for, but hardly anyone is talking about it! That lace! Those pockets!

    Just rewatched the 2010 opening (with Glee) because of this. Smiling so hard right now.

  4. Oh, you HAVE to check out Homeland. Great show.

    I don’t like Julianne Moore’s dress much — it looks like it’s swallowing her. But, I have to agree, Zosia Mamet’s dress is just odd and unflattering.
