Last night was the 65th Prime Time Emmy Awards on CBS. Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, who is no longer just known as Doogie Howser, M.D. – in fact I hardly even think of Doogie when I see Neil Patrick Harris these days. Anyway, I think he did a fine job… despite all the CBS plugs which I know were required and he IS on How I met Your Mother, a CBS show (a show I have never seen ever, and I watch a lot of network television).
NPH Looked flawless, as expected.
Should we start with fashion or the awards? Okay Fashion it is.
We’ll start with the good…
Sofia Vergara: Doesn’t she always look amazing? She can REALLY pull off a red Vera Wang… and $7 mil worth of Lorraine Schwartz Jewelry… whoa… I’d be terrified to wear that expensive of jewelry. Like literally would be checking every 30 seconds to make sure nothing fell off.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Flawless. I love it. But does anyone else miss Elaine Benes hair?
Heidi Klum: Heidi could pull of anything, even harem pants, and no body looks good in those. So I was happy to see her be risky and fun in this pomegranate Versace sequined dress.
Kaley Cuoco: Can we call this color pomegranate? Can we retire chartreuse, and say that pomegranate is the new black? Cause I love it.
Connie Britton: This was unexpected and looked great on Connie. So country… and that woman is BRONZE! Her skin just glows this bronzey skin.
Anna Gunn: I think this is super flattering. Also, we need to take notice to Anna’s amazing arms. She looks great!
Tina Fey: I love a dressed up Tina. And her nip slip even better! (I am also LOVING cobalt blue lately ((that’s a lie…always)))
One last one… My fav Sir Elton John’s sparkly cobalt blue jacket.
NOW…. It’s time for the NOT so good…
Paula Abdul: uh oh.
Zooey Deschanel: Okay, so I didn’t hate this dress… I do like Zooey in blue to match her beautiful eyes… but it wasn’t whimsical like Zooey so I was disappointed.
Anna Faris: What? Her hair was so shiny, was it a wig? And that yellow?
Sarah Hyland: It could have been so much more.
Julie Bowen: Now first of all, I love Julie Bowen. And she wore the ultimate all time best Emmy’s dress ever in 2012. See here… Julie Bowen in Monique Lhuillier. So basically anything after that has to be good… and this was was not it for me.
Now for the awards… We’ll get right into it… (I didn’t list them all, forgive me).
Drama Series Winner: Breaking Bad. I have no issue with this. It was exiting that they won!
Comedy Series Winner: Modern Family… I do love Modern Family. But this is like their 4th in a row… let’s let another show win… like The Big Bang Theory?
Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Claire Danes, Homeland. Okay, I have to admit… I’ve never seen homeland… I was sort of gunning for Connie Britton for Nashville, though I knew she didn’t have a chance. I know everyone wanted Kerry Washington.
Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom. Another show I haven’t seen. I don’t have HBO or Showtime… and HBO shows do not ever come on netflix. I feel it is an elite audience that gets to see these shows… ones that pay top dollar for their tv channels…. or have enough effort and time to download the episodes. I was hoping for Bryan Cranston… but I like Jeff Daniels too.
Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory, CBS. Yes! I love Sheldon Cooper!
Lead Actress in a Comedy Series: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep, HBO. Again, I’ve never seen Veep. I would have loved to see Amy or Tina win it.
Supporting Actor in Drama Series: Bobby Cannavale, Boardwalk Empire, HBO. I watched the first season and a half of Boardwalk Empire… basically because I love Steve Buscemi. I gave up on it. This win was a shock… I really thought Jonathan Banks would win from Breaking Bad.
Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad, AMC. Yes!! I loved this win!
Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Tony Hale, Veep, HBO. I’ve never seen Veep… but I love Tony Hale (Buster). I did want to see Bill Hader win.
Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Merritt Wever, Nurse Jackie, Showtime. I’ve never seen Nurse Jackie. I wanted Mayim Bialik to win…. or Jane Krakowski, or Sofia Vergara… but I did like her acceptance speech! (“I gotta go”).
Reality-Competition Program: The Voice, NBC. Come on… why wasn’t American Baking Competition on there!?
