It wouldn’t be an awards show if there weren’t a few fashion disasters (or disastahs, as Beyonce would say) in the mix. Sometimes it’s better to be on the worst dressed list than to go unnoticed. Any press is good press, right?
During last night’s 62nd Emmy Awards, thankfully a few ladies made fashion mistakes, giving media an opportunity to trash and mock them the next day. While all the following ladies are gorgeous in their own right, the list just clearly illustrates what happens, when ugly clothes happen to good people. Let me know if you agree with my list of the 2010 Emmys’ worst fashion offenders.
The 24-year-old “Glee” star was the furthest thing from elegant on Emmy night. This Carolina Herrera dress looked more like a tablecloth reject than haute couture. Even with the $140,000 Cartier diamonds, Dianna looked like Scarlett O’Hara’s daughter in a “Gone With The Wind” skit on The Carol Burnett Show. Trust me, that’s not a good thing.
Last night, the Academy announced the best of the best from the 2009-2010 television season, but let’s face it, the crown every actress wants is the “Best Dressed” one. While some took chances and failed, others played it too safe and still failed.
The following ladies, IMHO, chose wise calculated risks, accessorized brilliantly and rocked it out on the red carpet. Taking into account that fashion is highly subjective, I reveal to you, the 10 best dressed ladies from last night. Check it out and see if you agree with my picks.
Sofia didn’t go home with a golden statue, but who cares when you look like one. She sparkled in a Carolina Herrera gown accented by Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Brian Atwood heels. Muy caliente. Fun side note, Herrera loves Sofia’s sexy rolling Rs when saying her name.
Television’s biggest night takes place this weekend. The 62nd Emmy Awards will be handed out on Sunday August 29. For the past two weeks, I’ve taken an in-depth look at the major categories and given my two cents on who the odds on favorite are.
Now that I’ve given my predictions, I want to poll Homorazzi.com readers on who they think will win Emmy’s top prizes. To read my breakdown for each individual category, click on the category title and it’ll take you to the original post.
Be sure to watch the telecast on NBC 8pm EST / 5pm PST for live results. Let’s see if how, your and my predictions fall in line with the actual winners.
SHOULD WIN: Jane Lynch
WILL WIN: Jane Lynch
“Breaking Bad” has received widespread critical acclaim ever since it debuted, particularly for its writing as well as Bryan Cranston’s and Aaron Paul’s performances. Though it hasn’t won “Best Drama”, it’s won four Emmy Awards in other categories. While Bad had a great year, the other competitors had better ones. Besides “True Blood”, it has the longest shot at winning.
This is Dexter’s third nomination in a row, but hasn’t won the Emmy yet. If it’s going to win, this year is its best shot. Not only was their fourth season widely praised, its finale received record-breaking numbers, making it the most watched original series ever on Showtime. Last season featured two powerhouse performances from Michael C. Hall and John Lithgow. The latter already won an Emmy for his guest performance during last week’s Creative Emmy Ceremony. With Hall favored in his category as well, Dexter has excellent shot at finally bringing home the award for Best Drama.
This is the last major Emmy acting category I’ll be giving my two cents on before the big night. Most likely, it’ll also be one of the last awards given out on Sunday night as well. So who’ll win the “Best Lead Actor, Drama Series” award? Read below and find out.
Show: Friday Night Lights
Role: Eric Taylor
Episode Submitted: “East of Dillon”
Just like his female costar, this nomination is long overdue. Chandler has been lauded for years for his strong but vulnerable performance. According to most industry experts, Chandler is one of the frontrunners to take the award home.
I’m starting to wind down my 2010 Emmy Coverage and only have a few categories left to cover. Today, I’ll be cover the Best Leading Actress, Drama Series nominees. Out of all the acting categories, this is probably the strongest field, in my opinion. Though their characters come from varying backgrounds, they all have one major thing in common… They’re all strong women. Sit back and relax, while I dissect the race and predict who’ll win on Sunday night.
Show: Friday Night Lights
Role: Tami Taylor
Episode Submitted: “After the Fall”
For years, “Friday Night Lights” has been the little show that could. It’s been on the brink of cancellation many times due to its less than stellar ratings. What’s kept it afloat, is huge support from critics and their loyal fans. One of the key reasons people love this show so much, is Connie Britton’s portrayal of the show’s emotional core. Her stellar performance has finally earned her, her first nod. She’s considered a dark horse in the race, but has an outside chance of winning.
Yesterday, we checked out the ladies nominated in the “Best Supporting Actress, Drama Series” category. Today it’s the men’s turn. Three of the fine actors nominated this year have tasted Emmy glory before, while three are hungry and hoping it’s their turn this year.
So which of these talented thespians will take home the statue? Read below to check out my prediction on who the odds-on favorite to win “Best Supporting Actor, Drama Series” award.
Show: Men of a Certain Age
Episode Submitted: “Powerless”
In the very little seen Ray Romano-produced TNT drama, Braugher was fantastic playing against his usual characters. It was nice to see Braugher more vulnerable and a bit comedic. He’s won an Emmy twice before, proving he’s a favorite with voters. If the two Lost actors cannibalize each other, Andre could easily be this category’s dark horse to hold the statue.
Last week I predicted all the Emmy comedy categories, and on the weekend the reality competition ones. This week it’s all about the dramas. First up are the lovely ladies of the supporting category. Included in the field are two veterans, two first-time nominees, a repeat nominee from last year and another that was in the lead actress competition last year. Out of these six talented actresses, who will win “Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series“? Check out below to read my thoughts and final prediction.
Show: The Good Wife
Role: Diane Lockhart
Episode Submitted: “Bang”
She’s been nominated several times before, and even won an Emmy for her hilarious stint on “Cybil”. This year, Baranski is in the running for two awards. One for a guest stint on “The Big Bang Theory” and for “The Good Wife” which is her first dramatic nod. This just goes to prove how much the Academy loves her. “The Good Wife” was one of the few dramatic breakout hits last year, both the public and critics liked it. With no real frontrunner in the race, Baranski has a great shot of taking this category home.
