  • Laverne Cox became the first openly transgender Emmy nominee today, receiving a nod for her work in “Orange Is The New Black.” In a celebratory statement, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation said, “Today, countless transgender youth will hear the message that they can be who they are and still achieve their dreams — nothing is out of reach. Laverne’s success on a hit series is a clear indication that audiences are ready for more trans characters on television.” Damn straight! [The Wrap]

  • The website for Farrah Abraham’s new frozen yogurt shop was hacked today resulting in an oh-so-graphic GIF from her “Back Door Teen Mom” sex tape. Oh dear. [Starcasm]

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 Drama for “Orphan Black.” The fact that she was overlooked is a goddamn TRAVESTY. But I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that the same folks who rewarded “Frasier” and “Two and a Half Men” year after year would be too simple-minded to understand the brilliance of Maslany’s bevy of fabulous performances on the BBC show, which just ended its second season.

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 were worn by actresses who typically make my best dressed list. Sigh. Everyone has an off day, I guess.

The 2013 Emmy Awards Red Carpet!

Tonight: The Frisky Live Tweets The Emmy Awards!

Yes, we want to know if Kerry Washington will beat out Connie Britton for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, but what we REALLY want to know about the Emmys is if we will see Claire Danes’ awful/amazing cry face.

Join @TheFrisky on Twitter tonight, starting at 6 p.m. ET for witty commentary and life-changing, thought-provoking questions, like who would win in a duel between the casts of “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones”?

Make sure you’re using the hashtag #SpinEmmys and we’ll see you there! Who’s in?

Tomorrow Night: The Emmy Awards Are Getting Friskified!

Join Us Tonight! The EMMYs Get The Frisky Treatment

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.

In usual Frisky fashion, we’ll be live tweeting from the second the first star hits the red carpet to the moment NPH performs his elaborate closing song-and-dance burlesque number (a girl can dream, can’t she?) Keep reading »

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 get everything for free. Apparently this photo was part of some gift suite mayhem. That’s great and all, but can somebody please ask Glenn Close to stop staring at me?

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 our best dressed!
