The 2014 Emmy nominations were announced this morning by Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project) and Carson Daly (The Voice). Nominations were pretty standard with a couple of surprises (Fred Armisen, Portlandia, Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly (WTF) and Silicon Valley), some first time nominations (Lizzy Caplan, Masters of Sex and Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart) and A TON of snubs (Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black, The Good Wife, Shameless just to name a few). HBO’s Game of Thrones leads with 19 nominations followed by FX’s Fargo with 18 and Breaking Bad with 16. Check out the full list of nominees below.
Another Emmy ceremony has come to pass. Host, Neil Patrick Harris did his best to keep the show going and make this 3 hour telecast seem like an hour. Maybe it felt that way because I fast forwarded through all the commercials and half of the speeches. Here are some of my best moments from the show. Continue reading 65th Annual Primetime Emmys

The Emmy Awards were held last night and here are some of my best and worst dressed. I didn’t feel that there were many amazing dresses. Most of them were kind of mid line which made it difficult to pick the best and worst.
Lucy Liu (Elementary)
I really liked this dress. Yes it kind of looked like chain mail but I really like the shape and color and the entire ensemble. She’s just so beautiful.
Tina Fey (30 Rock)
Tina looked really good. So glad that she chose a different color than her usual black. Hair and makeup are all great and I like that she didn’t have a necklace because the neckline of the dress is enough.
2012 Emmy nominations were announced this morning and there were shocking nominations at all. They were announced by Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel’s own Jimmy Kimmel and Scandal‘s Kerry Washington (chick looked specially fresh-faced for it being 5:30 in the morning L.A time). Kimmel showed up in his pajamas to read the noms because of the ungodly hour. He was his hilarious self as usual and brought a breath of fresh air to the usually stiff nomination reading.
AMC’s Mad Men and FX’s American Horror Story landed the most nominations with 17. Hatfield & McCoys (History), Breaking Bad (AMC), Game Change (HBO) and Modern Family (ABC) also earned multiple nominations. There were many first time nominees including Bill Hader (Supporting Actor Comedy, Saturday Night Live, NBC), Zooey Deschanel (Lead Actress Comedy, New Girl, FOX), Max Greenfield (Supporting Actor Comedy, New Girl, FOX),and Lena Dunham (Lead Actress Comedy; Writing For Comedy, Directing For Comedy , Girls, HBO).

The fashion at the 63rd annual Emmy Awards had everyone seeing red. That was the color of the night. From Giuliana Rancic, Adrienne Palecki and Kerry Washington, there was so much red on the carpet sometimes u couldn’t tell the carpet from the dresses.
The 63rd Annual Emmy awards air tonight on FOX and if you know me, you know I love award shows.I especially love the Emmys because they are all about television and fashion, but they also signify the official beginning of the fall tv season.So many of my people and shows got nominated finally (Friday Night Lights, Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler for Friday Night Lights, Timothy Olyphant for Justified) and so I’m excited to see if they win or if the academy decides to just give it to the same ol’ people (I’m looking at you John Hamm).Tune in to the show tonight at 8/7c on FOX. Also check out the pre-shows on E! at 6/5c and on FOX at 7/6c.For all the nominees check out Entertainment Weekly’s Emmy Awards Ballot
