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?
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 »
Watching the Emmys this weekend, I was totally blown away by how amazing Julianna Margulies looked. “She hasn’t aged a day in 10 years!” I gasped, and then I saw Edie Falco, and thought the same thing, and then Nicole Kidman showed up, and I realized a photo slideshow was in order. Click through to check out side-by-side pics of 12 celebs who, through the magic of sunscreen or Botox or the blood of virgins, look exactly the same (or younger!) as they did a decade ago…
Nail art has been around for a long while, but only in the past year or so has it evolved from something you were more likely to see on your cool artsy friend into a ubiquitous trend spotted on everyone from Zooey Deschanel to Beyoncé. The $50 Minx manicure made popular by Katy Perry is more than we’d generally be willing to spend on something so temporary (and, um, tiny), but on the off chance you have $250,000 you’re looking to be really careless with, and you’ve already ruled out eating it, snorting things with it, and donating to the poor (!), why not make like Kelly Osbourne at the Emmys and cash in on the Azature black diamond manicure? (Yes, the same one that drove Winona to pack up her things and take off for Jupiter. We’ll never forgive you for that, Azature.) What, like that’s not a completely reasonable and responsible way to spend your money? Keep reading »
Sunday night’s Emmy Awards gave us a seasonally mixed beauty bag — summery bright lips and dark sultry eyes cropped up in equal abundance, while makeup stalwarts like matte red lips and high-density lashes seemed to take a backseat to more innovative looks. As runway beauty becomes more dramatic and daring, Hollywood follows suit — even Julianne Hough, who is so conventionally blonde and beautiful, went for the ultimate risk by chopping off her long locks earlier this year.
The actress and dancer channeled the Belle Époque on Sunday (she described her look on Twitter as “Midnight In Paris” meets Grace Kelly), wearing her cropped hair in a helmet of pincurls, but I just loved her makeup. Impeccably sculpted brows, soft, smoky bronze shadow, and a rosy blush worn low on the cheeks made Julianne look like she could’ve stepped right out of the 1900s, but she’d be equally at home in 1925 or, well, 2012 — in fact, her makeup artist Molly Stern wanted the look to evoke “a black-and-white photograph come to life.” It’s the rare vintage-inspired face that doesn’t look dated, and with no harsh lines or bright colors, it transitions ever-so-smoothly from the office to the speakeasy (or the club, if that’s how you roll). Conveniently, it’s also festive enough to see you through the season and beyond, well into holiday parties and until the last snow fall. Bottom line: you want, nay, need to steal this look.

Apparently winning an Emmy and being in one of the funniest movies of the year hasn’t solved comedienne Melissa McCarthy’s clothing woes. So, in order to solve the problem of not being able to find great plus-size fashions, McCarthy’s taking things into her own hands and starting a new clothing company. “Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible,” she said. “It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle.” She’s already started designing garments — like the purple number she wore to this year’s Emmys. McCarthy designed the dress after trying on “nine million dresses with taffeta or shiny bows,” and being dissatisfied with her options. Here’s to her knocking this one out of the park, too.

Melissa McCarthy and Joshua Jackson woke up very early this morning to announce this year’s Emmy nominations. Unfortunately, they didn’t get to show off their personalities much—the proceedings were austere, as usual, with just a smattering of laughs and giggles, and the whole thing was over in six minutes flat. After the jump, the good, bad, and WTF of the nominations. Keep reading »
Tomorrow morning at exactly 5:35 a.m., Melissa McCarthy
of “Bridesmaids” will join
Joshua Jackson of “Fringe” to announce this year’s Emmy
nominees. Nervous about the gig, Melissa consulted last year’s host, the hilarious Joel McHale, for advice. And thus, this hilarious training video was born. I cracked up when Joel rubbed a puppy on Melissa’s face and told her to “feel nothing.” How cute. Though maybe not cute enough for me to set my alarm to 5:30 a.m. [Huffington Post

“Modern Family”‘s Ed O’Neill has started a rivalry with the cast of “Glee” after saying that Jane Lynch didn’t deserve her best supporting actress Emmy this year. He thinks it should have gone to Sofia Vergara, who plays his wife on the show. It’s nice to stand up for your teammates, but it’s kinda rude to rain on other people’s award parade. [NY Daily News]
Maybe this is a new trend in celebs voicing their opinions a little too openly? We rounded up a few other award party poopers for the occasion. Keep reading »
According to Tina Fey, Emmy losers have more fun. On “The Jimmy Fallon Show,” she recounted her wild, post-Emmy party night out with the other drunk moms, like Amy Poehler. The highlight of the night was when she yelled, “This is what it looks like when New York gets drunk!” to the paparazzi. I think I would have kids just so I could join the drunk moms club with Tina and Amy. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
