Soap Opera Actress Nancy Lee Grahn Whines About Viola Davis’s Emmy Speech Not Including “All” Women

Last night’s Emmy Awards were shockingly entertaining and exciting, and the acceptance speeches were the absolute highlight, each one better than the next. From Jill Soloway and Jeffrey Tambor’s advocacy for trans rights, to Uzo Aduba’s moving tribute to her sister, to Regina King’s shock  at winning after years of slaying part after part, it was a…

5 Reasons “Orphan Black”‘s Tatiana Maslany Is The Best Even Without An Emmy Nomination

With the Emmy Awards coming up on Monday, we thought we’d pay tribute to Tatiany Maslany, who was clearly robbed of a nomination for her numerous clone roles in BBC America’s conspiracy thriller television series “Orphan Black.” Just renewed for a third season, the show has grown from cult status to a television audience favorite.

Adorable Kids Reenact Emmy Nominated TV Shows

It’s that time again! Awards season is upon us, and what better way to remind us that we’re still irrelevant for not having watched “Breaking Bad” than by continuing to nominate it for things, am I right? Anyway…
Tons of great TV shows are up for awards this year, including some of The Frisky’s personal…

Tatiana Maslany Was Robbed Of An Emmy Nomination For Her Array Of Performances On “Orphan Black”

The Emmy Awards are bullshit. I just need to say that. They are boring and they often play it safe and they are the award show I am least excited to watch, but STILL. I am disappointed. Dismayed even. Why? Tatiana Maslany should have been a shoo-in for a nomination for Best Actress in a…

The Worst Dressed At The 2013 Emmy Awards

Last night’s Emmy Awards were weird. Super. Weird. But we’ll get to that in a bit. For the most part, the looks on the red carpet were gorgeous and I could only pick a little over a dozen that I truly, truly, truly did not like — and it hurts my fashion-loving heart that many of them…

Tomorrow Night: The Emmy Awards Are Getting Friskified!

The glitz! The glamour! The constant wondering why Neil Patrick Harris has to be gay and can’t be my boyfriend! It’s all happening again, because the EMMYs are back, bitches.

Check Out Glenn Close’s Svelte New Beach Bod!

Just kidding! This is obviously not actually Glenn Close’s body, but merely a strange photo opp that took place during Sunday night’s Emmy Awards. A lot of weird stuff goes on backstage at the Emmys — and there are tons of personal gifting suites, so that rich people who can afford anything are able to…

2012 Emmy Awards: The Worst Dressed

The good news is, the vast majority of those walking the red carpet at last night’s Emmy Awards were dressed nicely. Some I loved more than others (Edie Falco! Emily VanCamp!), but most were difficult to find fault with. And then there were these 13 dresses. I’m sorry, but they were just straight up terrible.

2012 Emmy Awards: The Best Dressed

Last night’s Emmy Awards were, for the most part, predictable and boring and really, all you need to know is that you should really watch the first season of “Homeland” — which won best drama series — before the second season starts this Sunday. But before you do that, let’s review what everyone wore, starting with…

5 Reasons The Golden Globes Are Better Than The Oscars

Hooray! Award season has begun! On Sunday, the Golden Globe Awards will be handed out in Hollywood and I couldn’t be more excited. The Globes are my favorite award show of the season. While the Academy Awards have more “prestige,” I could fast-forward through about 90 percent of it. (Ditto for the Emmy Awards, which…
