The 10 Best Emmy Award Moments

Here’s how I generally feel about awards shows: they’re exciting for the first 15 minutes and then things get sloooooow from there and I just want it to end so I can go to sleep. I was prepared to be totally bored during last night’s Emmy Awards. But the show turned out to be both…

Jon Hamm! Dancing! At The Emmys!

In the opening number for last night’s Emmy Awards, producers brought out the big guns — Jon Hamm. Dancing. As in, backing dat ass up. And also the cast of “Glee,” Betty White, Tina Fey, Hurley from “Lost,” Tim Gunn, Jimmy Fallon, and Kate Gosselin, but seriously, most importantly, JON HAMM. Dannnncinggggg. Clip above!

10 Things We Hope Will Happen At The Emmy Awards

So, the Emmys are this weekend! And while that’s awesome and all, it’s just a touch annoying that the awards show is going down on Sunday night, which just happens to be the biggest night on television. “True Blood” and “Mad Men“—thanks for showing new episodes smack bam in the middle.

That beef…

The Emmy Seating Chart

Picking who sits where for the Emmys has to be complicated. Images of the seating chart were released today and it appears that the “Mad Men” cast got the prime real estate, with Jon Hamm front and center, and Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, and then Christina Hendricks behind him in a line. We wonder what…

“Glee” versus “Modern Family”: The Emmy Ad Showdown

Now, I love “Glee.” I also love “Modern Family.” So I’m kind of glad I am not part of the committee that’ll have to vote on which show wins the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy. Both shows have put together very funny ads in Hollywood Reporter.

The 2010 Emmy Nominations Are In And It’s A Big Year For “Glee,” “Mad Men,” And Conan O’Brien

This morning, the Primetime Emmy nominations were announced and, as usual, there were few surprises. The Lead Actor in a Drama series category is especially competitive, in my TV-obsessed opinion, with “Mad Men”‘s Jon Hamm facing off against critical faves Hugh Laurie (“House”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), and Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad,” my current favorite…

Victoria Rowell Explains Her Obama Gown At The 2009 Emmys

If Victoria Rowell had worn her Obama gown to the Emmy Awards last year, it probably wouldn’t have been so shocking because a lot of celebs were showing their support for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign at that time. But she donned a dress with his face all over it at a time when most people…

Will Neil Patrick Harris Be The Gay Shepherd Of Hollywood?

How do I love Neil Patrick Harris? Let me count the ways. I love him for his incessant high-fiving on “How I Met Your Mother” and for making me actually feel empathy for the world’s ultimate cad. I love him for suiting up in a white tuxedo to host Sunday’s Emmy Awards. I love him…

Quick Pic: Step Away From The False Lashes

OK Kim, honey, we need to talk. The blue eye makeup is a nice touch with your white dress — if anyone is gonna pull off Barbie makeup, it’s you girl. But those fake lashes are so long it’s a wonder you can keep your eyes open at all. Next time, three sizes smaller, m’kay?

How To Get Elisabeth Moss’s Rosy Glow At The Emmys

Peggy Olson has really stepped up her look on the current season of “Mad Men,” but she still isn’t quite as lovely as Elisabeth Moss is when she’s out of character. The actress looked quite nice on the red carpet last night with her simple makeup that eschewed the Hollywood trend to heap on the…

Blake Lively’s Boobs And Legs Roam Free In Yet Another Red Carpet Gown

It’s hard being Blake Lively. Between Leighton Meester’s alleged sex tape, Ed Westwick’s stupid tattoos, and Taylor Momsen’s incessant partying, she’s the only class act “Gossip Girl” has got going. Yet, when it comes to the red carpet, subtlety eludes the poor thing.

And The Emmy Goes To …

The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards hosted by the always-adorable-and-never-douchey Neil Patrick Harris was last night. While it wasn’t perhaps as interesting as last weekend’s VMA awards on MTV, there were a few surprises — and some great fashion, which I’m sure we’ll discuss more of throughout the day. Before we get to the best- and…

TV’s Funniest Ladies Sit Down To Gab

Some of the funniest ladies ever — i.e. Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, Christina Applegate, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mary-Louise Parker and Jane Krakowski — got together for an Emmy round table and it’s pretty adorable. Suck it, Christopher Hitchens!

Worst Moments Of The Boring Emmy Awards

The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards honored and celebrated the best of TV entertainment yesterday, but unfortunately the award ceremony itself was not entertaining. The award winners were either obvious and dull or unexpected and disappointing. And since most of the winners are from niche cable shows, the jokes didn’t tie the ceremony together.

Slideshow: The Only Thing Vaguely Interesting About The Emmy’s Were The Clothes

I love award shows, so this means something coming from me — The Emmy’s sucked. And I’m not just bitter because Jon Hamm didn’t win Best Actor in a Drama Series for playing Don Draper on “Mad Men”. The best moment, by far, of the whole night was Tina Fey’s acceptance speech, but outside of…

Monday Menage: Emmy Winners Jeff Probst, Jeremy Piven, & Jon Stewart

Last night Emmy’s were a snooze fest, but there were some real winners we want to sleep with! First, Jon Stewart, the Daily Hotness alum who hosts “The Daily Show”, won a statuette for Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series. Stewart makes us sweat his sexy, suit wearin’ style and then gets us giggly with…
