Emmys 2020

Normally the Emmys is the official end of summer and beginning of awards season for me. It’s an exciting time where the weather starts to decline and the only thing to look forward to is cheese boards, wine & red carpets. NOT THIS YEAR THO. Much like the ACM’s last week, we’ve got a whole different virtual formula for awards szn so I’ll do what I can to recap and shove my commentary down your throat. The home base for the Emmys was the Staples Center where Jimmy Kimmel hosted live, and 130 camera kits were sent out to all nominees homes so they could set up zoom style and feed into Kimmel onstage. TOTAL recipe for disaster to rely on technology and most importantly WIFI. Gotta be honest, the high chance of this being a real shit show really pulled me in. Along with webcams came a dress code that stated, “Come as you are, but make an effort.” If we’re being honest that really describes my whole personal style. So let’s see what that meant for the celebs from swanky watch parties to their couch:

anniemurphy

Schitt’s Creek Partay was the PLACE to BE. I mean, that flower wall, hot damn. Annie also looks like a real babe soda. 

catherine

Ladies of Schitt’s really going for the classic black and red lip theme here. Love the combat boots tossed in with sequins.

danlevy

It pains me to admit this v. unpopular opinion (especially after last night) but I have not seen Schitt’s Creek in its entirety. I know, I know. I suck. However, this kilt is a nod to his character I’m told? Either way that slate grey is doing thangs for Daniel. Lookin svelte.

eugenelevy

You scroll from apple right to the tree. What a family of sharp looks, dark frames and prominent brows. 

HER

Gotta give props to anyone who gowned up for the show when I’m about to literally rate celebrity loungewear in the same “red carpet.” 

jameela

Case in point, this fuzzy rainbow sweater robe over what looks like a white cotton jumpsuit. Pj’s but make them for rich people.

rachel

More richies PJ’s but this time it’s for a good cause. Rachel had these fancy jams designed for her and her husband and after tonight she’ll be auctioning them off for charity. This past year I decided it was time to stop wearing size XL men’s tees to bed sans pants–Winnie the Pooh style and graduate to the fancy jam game. I really just wanted to pretend for a second that I’m classy and not a homeless troll living under the bridge even in my sleep. I can confidently say now that I’ve upgraded my sleepwear that I’m an old soft tee girl through and through. Silk tuxedos really have no give or breathability for slumber. I felt like the sweaty Hulk in a straitjacket. So maybe Rachel’s jammies ARE a better fit for the red carpet.

regina1regina2

Regina King served two looks. The first was a video she produced beforehand to show us what she would’ve worn for a red carpet. She looks bomb and I love the blue. The second is what she wore on camera and I also approve. Honestly I just have a boner for bright colors and this fuchsia is summery and fun.

Damn, check out Tituss showing off a slim and trim bod in this racy red lewk. I’ve spent pretty much the entirety of quarantine seeking out the perfect tie dye loungewear set so I can appreciate a good matching sweat set. This looks cozy and fashionable and even allows for a little unzip to show off the chesties. 

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 8.54.04 PM

I noticed that many people who advertised their outfit on their instagram also linked it to a product showing us just how shameless celebrities are while they’re “out of work.” I can’t tell you for sure if this is a dress or a robe or what’s going on here because clearly the focus is supposed to be on her glassware and whatever’s in those red boxes. All I can say is that I like the flowers.

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 8.54.30 PM

Reese WOULD host a party in her backyard and look like this Hollywood Queen. Really would’ve loved a full bod shot here but top half is pretty stellar.

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 8.55.01 PM

Again this could be a merch hawk but no Mark Ruffalo, NO. It’s like he’s going for youth hipster with that hat and nursing home resident finishing the crossword puzzle with his cheaters through those specs. Thankfully he lost both for the real show or I would’ve cringed my face off if he accepted his award looking like this hot mess.

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 8.55.22 PM

Obviously the freebie watch is the main event here on Sterling’s instagram but otherwise digging the grey suit and cool guy shades.

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 8.55.48 PM

YESSSSS, BB! I love everything about this.

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 9.01.41 PM

I’m all in on this. If I was nominated for an Emmy and had to set up a camera in my own home for probably 15 seconds of screen time, you bet your bottom dollar I’m setting up a whole scene with a ridiculous outfit. Alex flashed on the screen after losing looking like this and it was a highlight of the show. She’s serving a whole ass look here and even though she lost the Emmy, she won “Best Dramatic Character Losing at the 2020 Emmys” in our hearts.

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 9.02.40 PM

For all the Gilmore Girls stans, Amy and Daniel Sherman-Palladino serving hat game realness at the Dragonfly Inn. 

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 9.20.28 PM

Jennifer Aniston never changes and has an awards show look that just won’t quit. Throw her in a simple black dress, add some frosting and let those beach waves do their thang.

Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 9.40.02 PM

I watched Normal People and shit all over it and I get that this guy is like a sex symbol for people who were obsessed with the show but WHY. THIS HAIR. He has a literal straight line of hair across his forehead like Dumb and Dumber. Make it stop.

tracee

Is this the Emmys or the Golden Globes cause damn, gurl!

It’s the neck scarf for me. (Did I do that right, youths?)

The top feathers looked much better when she was presenting on camera than they photographed here. She looks great despite the fact that she’s posing with a boulder.

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.24.33 AM

I got a very large summer boner for this bright coral and the fit is flawless. Top look of the night for me.

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.25.28 AM

The lipstick matches the dress perfectly. Stunning combo and honestly everyone should have a best friend (or someone on their payroll) that will stage an Emmys red carpet photoshoot for you on your AirBnB patio.

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.26.53 AM

I expected Billy to bring it regardless of the location and he sure did. The white accents and the *subtle* awards placement within frame. We get it, you’ve won some shit. I also look like that in my living room except the cape hanging off of me is a fleece blanket from TJMaxx.

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.28.20 AM

I’m very into colors for this Emmys and this was another one that I saw onscreen when she presented and immediately tried to find a picture of it. I’m thirsty for fashion in these dry times. Get over it. This is a watercolor work of art.

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.29.06 AM

My favorite color in a track suit jacket and also an “I read books” intellectual background that no doubt a PA spent hours staging for 3 seconds of air time.

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.30.09 AM

It’s an election year and obviously I expected statement clothing and speeches. We’ve seen a lot of Breonna Taylor and BLM but never just a straight up VOTE set of coordinates. Laura Linney was not who I expected to deliver that. 

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.30.23 AM

I applaud going all extra–especially because she won but I’m not a fan of this flapper party look. It feels too Halloween dress-up for me. I mean, her husband is wearing a red silk tiger shirt like he’s Joe Exotic on date night. It’s a lot.

Screen Shot 2020-09-21 at 8.26.17 AM

Would love to know if this is Don’s real house because I’m really vibing with the couch decor and patterned chairs. It’s probably a rental because everyone in Hollywood is “on location” always but we’ve got another political duo keeping it casj cool on a couch fit for a beach house.

IMG_9364

 I can’t really say anything about his outfit because he’s sitting on TOP of the camera and you know what? That made me laugh out loud so we’re going to shout it out. He’s the eager beaver who leans in like he’s having a real convo with you even though you’re not even in the same city. What a close zoom we got from Nichola Braun who’s just happy to be here.

IMG_9363

I watched the “red carpet” on E for further cringe moments and loved the interview with Ted Dansen sitting in a kitchen looking like a grandpa Facetiming with his kids. It was adorable. The doorbell rang and the dogs started barking mid interview and he was like ope, DoorDash is here! Classic gramps moment. It also looks like he’s just wearing a patterned button down ready for Sunday dinner with the kids. Very wholesome.

Fave look of the night! The leopard! The turquoise earrings! The Monica Geller with beaded vacation braids sound when she sways in this dress! CHEF’S KISS.

And now I’ll give you the highs and lows of the very first virtual Emmys.

LOWS

The Fire Bit. 

Look, I get there’s a lot of pressure to be funny without live laughs and since Jimmy Kimmel and Jennifer Aniston are buds IRL they wanted to have a little fun with it but setting a controlled fire that turned out to be not so controlled in LA seemed to hit A LITTLE CLOSE TO HOME. It was a LITTLE TOO REAL. As someone who doesn’t live in the land of the fires, I felt like I couldn’t fully make that comment but then I texted my bestie who does live there and she agreed. So we cool. No more fires in California, even if you’re just joshing around, Hollywood. That being said, Jen staying calm, cool & collected and effortlessly fighting flames onstage in a gown was preettttyy boss.

Monologue

Kicking things off with a fake audience was a no for me. It made it super confusing as to if there were people there or not or if the monologue was pre-taped. I don’t need anymore confusion right now. I spent most of the monologue wondering what was real that I missed a lot of the jokes.

Schitt’s Sweep.

This is both a high and a low for me. Schitt’s Creek won every single award in the Comedy category. So for the first hour of the show, SEVEN awards in a row were awarded to the gang partying it up in Canada. This is a low because it was the first hour of the Emmys and we saw the same people give speeches over and over again. Not a great lead-in hook. It’s a high because I love the fact that Eugene and Dan Levy made a show together and their father-son bond is adorable. You can also tell that Dan Levy is genuinely grateful and appreciative of the awards, even apologizing for winning them all. Props to the Schitt’s Creek crew for not only throwing an Emmys banger but also winning literally all of the awards.

Need More Losers/House Peeping.

IMG_9360

Since we had 7 straight Schitt wins in a row, it gave me the time to really need more loser action. Normally we get a lot of crowd reaction shots and due to the fact that we were essentially watching a video conference call, that was lacking this year. We got the epic shot of Alex Borstein petting her dog and slugging whiskey but we needed MORE. I WANT TO DRINK THE TEARS OF THE LOSERS. No but really, I just wanted more peeps on other nominees which segues nicely into I want to see inside of all of their homes, uninterrupted. It seems unfair that we only get to see the homes of the winners (shout out to the dizzying pattern room of Jesse Armstrong above.) GIVE US A PEEP OF YOUR MANSIONS, OR ELSE. Which also leads me to…

Meryl. The Untouchable Meryl.

meryl

The almighty who created the overused pointing aggressively and clapping meme from an acceptance speech reaction COULD NOT BE BOTHERED WITH A ZOOM AWARDS SHOW. Bitch is too good to let us see where she lives. If Meryl truly was a woman of the people, she’d set up all of the awards she’s amassed in frame, sit amongst them in an extravagant gown and let us bask in her glory. Instead she chose “OOO.” Whatever, Meryl. It’s a real power move to not even have to leave your couch to attend an awards show and still say you’re busy.

HIGHS

CELEB DOGS!!!

rachel-brosnahan-emmys-2020Dylan-McDermott-dog-Emmys-2020DArcy-Carden-dog-Emmys-2020

I didn’t get to see as much home decor as I would’ve liked but I DID get my fill of celeb pooches. I’m all in on the pup cameos. It’s impossible to frown when you see a dog coaxed into the frame, especially when it’s a large pitbull being hoisted in like above. I just wanna SMUSH THEIR LITTLE FACES. Dogs should be allowed at every awards show going forward.

Losers Get a Wave.

This weird “someone in a hazmat suit just shows up at your house with your Emmy” was next level shit. Even weirder & more hilarious–Ramy pulling back the curtain on what happens when you don’t win. BYE BYE, LOSER!

The Real Friends Reunion.
Screen Shot 2020-09-20 at 11.55.00 PM

I’ve been very vocal about not giving a shit about the Friends reunion that’s been overhyped for a year now that you have to get another streaming service to even watch and it’s just a bunch of cast interviews. Every time they bring it up I roll my eyes out of my damn head. I love the show Friends, I watch it constantly and yet I don’t feel the need to buy every Friends themed merch that they’ve been hawking for the past year. I DID however love this cameo, especially because it came right around the time I started to get bored as hell during the show. Not only did Jennifer look like a total bangpiece in that robe, but the casual oh hey we’ve all been roomies since the 90’s was cute and I appreciated it. I loved it even more when Jason Bateman strolled in. Bateman was a win all around for me last night. From his cameo in the monologue demanding to stay because he hasn’t been out in months and putting a cutout of him from the 80’s front row, to him walking through this Friends bit and snarkily asking Jimmy if he was going to kick him out of his own house too. As a real sarcastic B, I dig Bateman’s salty vibes.

Celebs in Quarantine

Pretty much every celebrity made me laugh in this and that’s rare. Contrary to popular belief they haven’t spent quarantine singing John Lennon’s Imagine. Stars, they developed an alcohol dependency just like us when faced with staying at home for a lengthy period of time. 

Cheers to 2021

Now I can finally say I attended a New Year’s Eve party in Reese Witherspoon’s backyard. I too would like it to be 2021, but for a slightly different reason than Reese. If I hear “2020, man” or “ya gotta love 2020” or “that’s 2020 for ya” one more time I might blow my brains out. So for my safety and everyone else’s, it’s now 2021. End of discussion.

My Emmys commentary in real time:

Week of 7/27/2020

1. A LEGEND HAS DIED.

Regis

We lost our beloved REGE this week. On Saturday to be specific, of course when I was in the countryside with no service. I got scooped on it and was BESIDE myself when I went to read the deets for myself and found that my internet ceased to exist. Obviously Regis was old and it shouldn’t be a shock that he passed but I did not take the news lightly. In fact, I took it so personally that I knew I wasn’t in the right headspace to see Kathie Lee’s tribute to him on the same day that I found out about his death. I needed a few days to accept and come to terms with it before I could dive into what she had to say. I literally brought up his death in therapy this week, so obviously I’m doin real well. But first, my own personal anecdote. I worked on The Rachael Ray Show as an intern senior year of college, I’m sure I’ve referenced it before as it’s probably the closest I’ve ever been to Hollywood. Rege was a regular because he’s TV royalty and why wouldn’t you have him as a guest?! Anytime the Reg-ster was there, you knew it. As he walked out onto set, he made eye contact with and greeted everyone. There’s a lot of times that you talk about celebrities being dicks in real life and Regis was the exact opposite. That zing that he brought to your TV screen? That’s legit just how he is. He’d walk through with a huge smile on his face, cracking jokes and tossing out finger guns. He was a walking party and I wanted him to be my grandpa. A LEGEND. There’s too many dirt bag celebs (cough cough Ellen, more on that later) so it’s always heartwarming to know someone who was truly just a good human with a warm personality and just happened to be famous on the side. Anyway, onto Kathie Lee’s tribute, which I can finally handle now.

View this post on Instagram

There are no words to fully express the love I have for my precious friend, Regis. I simply adored him and every day with him was a gift. We spent 15 years together bantering and bickering and laughing ourselves silly—a tradition and a friendship we shared up to this very day. I smile knowing somewhere in Heaven, at this very moment, he’s making someone laugh. It brings me great comfort knowing that he had a personal relationship with his Lord that brought him great peace. I send all the love in my heart to Joy, to his children, to the rest of his family and to the innumerable people he touched over his legendary life. There has never been anyone like him. And there never will be.

A post shared by Kathie Lee Gifford (@kathielgifford) on

She also spoke on the Today Show about how she visited with Regis a month or two ago and they laughed just like they always do when they get together and had a ball and that was the last time she saw him. And she noticed that he was failing in health and it might be the end. And Rege’s wife Joy shared with KL that she hadn’t seen him laugh like that in months. REGIS AND KATHIE LEE FOREVA. THEY ARE THE CUTEST. And not to bring down this lovely tribute to Reger’s with negativity but let’s just be clear that Kelly ain’t shit. Regis MADE Kelly and I *FEEL* like she wasn’t at all grateful and just saw him as a dinosaur. Their chemistry wasn’t even CLOSE to him and KL and all around Kelly comes off as a real twatmonster. I mean look at her “tribute.” A cold, written statement–nothing personal about it. Get the hell out of here, Kelly.

Hey Kelly, check out Gelman’s tribute HERE if you want to see what real human emotions look like.

2. Pray for Reese.

nicole-reese

Emmy nomzzzz have been released and Reese Witherspoon got DUMPED on. That’s my biggest takeaway. Not that we’re announcing nominations when we don’t even know if the awards show will happen unless it’s Zoom-style. They’ll figure it out. What they won’t figure out is how they could spit in the face of Hollywood’s sweetheart. Reese has been CHURNING out female-empowering content through her production company and acted in THREE shows this past year. THREE. And everyone else got noms in those shows but her. I can only personally vouch for Little Fires Everywhere because I refuse to pay for another platform just to watch The Morning Show–but she CRUSHED playing an unlikable 90’s mom bitch in that. Like I hated her. And it must take superb acting to hate a sweetie like Reese. In fact, after seeing Kerry nominated for Little Fires, and Jen nominated for the Morning Show and Meryl AND Laura Dern for Big Little Lies…all Reese had to say was this:

What a class act, honestly. Also not all bad because her production company created every single one of these shows so she’ll still cash out on a W. But still doesn’t hurt to be recognized for her onscreen efforts. For what it’s worth, I’d nominate you, REESE!!!! Kerry Washington’s flared nostrils ain’t got shit on your skillzzzzzz. CLICK HERE to see the full list of noms including a shout to Love is Blind (the cringiest low budget reality show that hit right when quarantine started, rocketing it to fame) and a nomination for Brad Pitt guest starring on SNL. THAT’S a stretch. When are we going to stop being so obsessed with the Pitzer? And let’s hope and pray that we can somehow rig a real life awards show not via video conference because Mama needs a red carpet. She’s jonesin for some judging.

3. J Baby Hath Arrived.

joe-jonas-sophie-turner

Honestly I feel like it was just yesterday that I was announcing her pregnancy and fearing that if I was wrong I’d have to get face ink. But it has been reported that the baby is HERE and it’s a girl named Willa Jonas. And I APPROVE! What a great, normal name! Willa J in da HOUSE! It has also been reported via the latest Taylor Swift album lyric: “Cold was the steel of my axe to grind for the boys who broke my heart / Now I send their babies presents” that she sent them a gift. There’s no actual evidence of this, other than people over-reading into her lyrics so I guess Willa is the youngest owner of a Taylor Swift custom cardigan and seriously WTF. I’m still seething over the fact that I didn’t get one. Another thing that I brought up in therapy, so if this baby got one I might just spiral.

4. Ellen Sucks.

ellen

Remember how I bragged about my unpaid internship for the Rachael Ray show? While it’s when I was there back in 2013 that I learned how much of a DICK Ellen is to work for. Hollywood’s a gossipy place and it didn’t take long for a fellow intern to reveal she had also interned for Ellen and it was a real nightmare. I’ve kept that in the back of my mind as she continued her run as the #1 daytime show and danced her fake ass out onstage every day. My mom used to dance along with her and then you know what? The schtick got old. Also, it was becoming more clear that she was over this TV show and was putting in a real half-assed effort. So I’ve been quietly boycotting her for years. Then quarantine hit and apparently Ellen’s time to shine was COMING TO AN ABRUPT END. There was a Twitter thread asking people to share all of their terrible Ellen stories and it went viral. People talking about weird shit she did like making them chew gum outside of her office before coming in because she has a sensitive nose or telling them not to talk to her at all. Here’s a few of those nuggets:

Screen Shot 2020-07-31 at 11.10.19 AMScreen Shot 2020-07-31 at 11.10.30 AMScreen Shot 2020-07-31 at 11.10.37 AMScreen Shot 2020-07-31 at 11.10.47 AMScreen Shot 2020-07-31 at 11.10.56 AMScreen Shot 2020-07-31 at 11.11.10 AM

Then it became clear that she wasn’t paying her crew during quarantine but was continuing to make her show and different bits from home. Any host who can afford to pay everyone’s salaries for months without it even affecting their bank account and chooses NOT to is a real douche sandwich. Then it got quiet again and it was clear that Ellen’s power and fame were going to drown out the years-long complaints of mistreatment. UH UH HONAY. The WB launched an investigation this week and FINALLY we get some sort of acknowledgement from Ellen and it’s HILARIOUS. She sent an internal letter to staff playing dumb. Here’s the gist–full letter can be found HERE:

“Hey everybody – it’s Ellen. On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show. I could not have the success I’ve had without all of your contributions. My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that. Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”

“I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop. As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or – worse – disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me. It’s been way too long, but we’re finally having conversations about fairness and justice.”

So are you committed to stop being a total a-hole to the people who work for you orrrrrr? What a classic bitch move to just not at all acknowledge the horrific rep you have and real stories that have come out and just dance your way out of the conflict by saying you had no clue this was going on and your show is all about happiness. And then to point fingers and say they’re misrepresenting her. I hope everyone teams up to DRAAAAG her. It’s the era of Cancel Culture. ADD ELLEN TO THE LIST, YO. Even Brad Garrett spoke out, which I hope means other celebs will too. YAAAAS. Smell ya later, Ellen!

5. The Kissing Booth 3.

flynn

This news will play to a very small audience, but after saddling up to the TV on Friday night for the Kissing Booth 2 premiere with my sister and our equally as teen flick obsessed bestie on Facetime, we snacked, drank wine & drooled over Noah. We also cringed our life away because this flick is not for the faint of heart when it comes to cheesy teen storylines. Their new hottie with a body character designed to swoop in and break up Elle and Flynn was so obsessed with his guitar that at one point they’re sitting on the beach having a serious chat and suddenly his guitar just emerges from the sand so he can end the convo with a serenade. There were several hysterics from us at that moment and the hits just kept on coming with him, including very shiny matching silver lamé with Sketchers shape-ups outfits for a dance competition. Ugh. But I got carried away there as I tend to do. They left the second movie on a cliffhanger, Netflix’s favorite way of telling you that this will be a never-ending series beaten into the ground. And then the stars were like PSYCHE! we already filmed the third and it’ll be out in 2021. So no panicking here about a long wait post COVID times for a new movie, as it’s already been completed. What a trick. Here’s a sexy sneak preview to get you all riled up for more Elle and Flynn:

And then to bring you right back down, here’s some INCREDIBLY awkward moments to prove that not only can Jacob Elordi and Joey King not even do press together (that’s how bad their breakup was) but it seems like Jacob pretty much hates the entire cast and has no interest in being a part of this trilogy. Also, not for nothing, he has a real life mullet and looks like garbo lately. Either way, I can only imagine how awks filming two movies in a row were for these two considering they refuse to even be interviewed together. WOooOof. Get all the uncomfies here:

Start at 6:15 for the cold AF promotion of the movie and transition back to the entire cast getting along and promoting it together:

Special thank you to my assistant Nikki, who spent an undisclosed amount of time watching Youtube clips after the premiere on Saturday to try and sniff out every unbearable interaction between these two former lovers and learn why they broke up. Unfortunately since they avoid talking about each other, this may be a secret that we never learn…but we’ll never stop sleuthing.

BONUS: FOR THE LAAAADIEEEEZZZZ

Here’s a glance at a hot bod getting hosed down. WET MUSCLES, MMMMMMM. K have a great weekend.

Emmys 2019 Red Carpet

Since I cut cable out of my life in the middle of summer when none of my shows were on and it wasn’t awards season yet, obviously last night was a real wake up call. I had to work the hardest to steal cable from my wealthier family members and then the app closed out during every commercial break so basically what I’m trying to say is appreciate this awards season content extra from my poor ass cause the struggle is R E A L.

WORST

Meh. After making Four Weddings and a Funeral appointment TV every Wednesday night, I wanted more from our gurl Maya. This also feels like a prom look.

Fine dress to wear to a backyard wedding, not an awards show.

Also feel let down by the new J.Law cool girl, Sophie. This dress is essentially the same color as her skin and it’s really not doing anything for me.

Only these two a-holes would OVERDRESS for an awards show that they have no business being at. Also quick shout out to them presenting the best reality TV Emmy and having the crowd BURST out laughing at “our family knows how to make good TV just by being ourselves.” And these sweet, sweet idiots were confused when everyone started laughing. CUT TO THE NOMINEES, QUICK.

Emmys Red Carpet 2018

I’d like to say that I watched the 70th Emmy’s last night but mostly I just talked over it and shoved cheeses, meats & olives into my mouth. Certainly didn’t stop me from sounding off about everyone’s outfits, tweeting about nipples and laughing at the cringeworthy proposal that occurred onstage for all to see. Feels good to be back.

Oh, ok. So I guess the rule is if you won an Emmy last year that gives you the right to show up in a silk button down with a corset layered over it and adorned with costume pearls.

So apparently this was her wedding dress. She is divorced now and supposedly wanted the dress to have a night on the town. What really had a night on the town were her erect nipples. When the Ungermyer took the stage to accept the Emmy, her areolas quite literally poked my eyeballs out. She even had the gall to mention that she skipped the bra. NO NEED TO LET US KNOW, WE RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE WHEN YOUR NIPS TOUCHED THE MIC BEFORE YOU DID.

Emmys 2017 Recap

I used to do a recap for every awards show ever…in fact I think I had to physically stop myself from watching and recapping the Kids Choice Awards. That was where I drew the line, apparently. It was a very fine line. I recapped funny things that happened, or I would critique how the host did UNTIL Trump was elected and Hollywood decided that every awards show should be their personal political platform. It’s cool guys, you have your opinions and you want to share them when everyone is watching, it’s whatever. The problem HOWEVER is that for someone who doesn’t follow politics (this guy) awards shows have officially become over my head. Their jokes, their jabs, the over-exaggerated bits–everything flies over this dum dum dome, and therefore HOW CAN I RECAP A SHOW I DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND?! So to my true hardcore fans–I apologize for the lack of content. I genuinely don’t think awards shows are funny anymore because I’m not in on the joke. That being said, I’ve picked 5 things about the Emmys that WERE entertaining, JIC you also tuned out after the first five minutes of a song saturated by political commentary.

1. The Only Trump Joke I Laughed At. Obviously every late night host has perfected their Trump impression and Stephen Colbert hosting was a precursor to a whole lot of political nuances that I was prepared to zone out for. But then he read this tweet:

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 8.29.01 AM

And panned to Seth spitting up marbles. I actually burst out laughing. It’s the simple things that get me, really. What a great bit. Colin Jost’s casj straight face really hits it home.

marbles

2. Anna Chlumsky is the new Taylor Swift.

I’ve never seen a more overdramatic over-reactor since Taylor Swift owned the audience cam at every awards show ever. Anna puts asses in the seats when it comes to facial expressions. Half the time I didn’t even know something was supposed to create emotions until I looked to her face for guidance. She was shocked, she sobbed for no reason during an acceptance speech & she pulled a full range of weird faces while onstage during Veep’s acceptance, just trying to find the right one. Do 1000% less, Anna.

3a. RIGHT ON THE KISSER.

I missed this happening live and was so happy that it was on twitter within minutes. God Bless Twitter. HOW can you possibly kiss your co-star like that right in Keith’s grill piece? That’s some cold shit, Kidman. Like I get that you guys had a real, shall we say, intimate acting experience together–but like NOT a good look to make out on live TV. If I were Keith I would’ve popped him right smack in the middle of that stupid ‘stache he’s rocking. My friend and I sat there with baited breath through Nicole’s acceptance speech to see if she would even thank Keith because obviously we were convinced just from that kiss that she’s having an affair. Cheating is bad but like maybe Nicole sleeping with her costar is what Keith needs to clean up that hairstyle that he’s had since 1997. It’s such a horrific mom cut and it does not belong on his head. Just saying. This could be beneficial for all. BTW she did gush over her hubs and called him “my Keith” so I guess she wins back points for that. BUT I HAVE MY EYE ON THE SITUATION.

3b. Nicole hates Reese.

nicole-reese

Big Little Lies was my draw to the Emmys this year. Each year I watch one thing that’s worthy of awards and BLL was my golden ticket this time around. So I was extra interested every time they were on screen, especially because they made such a giant deal about all being women and how GROUNDBREAKING it is that women are lead roles in Hollywood, which I feel like has been going on for some time, but whatevs. I knew that they all couldn’t be besties like they kept blabbing on about so I waited for the weak moment and I didn’t really need to search hard for it. Nicole was up against Reese for lead actress in a mini-series and when she won, she kissed that husband of hers (at least it wasn’t Alex this time) and bolted up to the stage at lightning speed. Reese was sitting DIRECTLY BEHIND HER. All it would’ve taken was a quarter turn and fake butt-out hug but she didn’t even give her that. BURN CITY, Population: Reese Witherspoon. Then she starts her speech with  “Reese, I share this with you.” Do you though? And then proceeded to have a 15 minute speech that the DJ didn’t DARE play off. Suddenly Nicole Kidman is a power player? What is going on here.

4. The Pearsons are REAL.

I may be biased because Sterling K Brown delivered my favorite speech from last year’s Emmys but I also feel like he deserves a shout out because they played him off the minute he opened his mouth last night–yet let Nicole Kidman talk for an hour and a half. AND THAT AIN’T RIGHT. Before they literally cut the camera away because he kept talking over the music (KEEP PLAYING, BITCHES) he thanked his This is Us family “You are the best white TV family that a brother has ever had.” That just warms my heart. THEY’RE A REAL FAMILY, YOU GUYS.

5. Oprah.

oprah

I don’t know if I just haven’t been paying attention lately now that Oprah is off TV, just living somewhere soaking in her riches from the OWN network, but girl has dropped an ENTIRE PERSON in weight. She’s got some sassy dark frames and she looked like a real babe soda last night. CBS knew it too. They plopped her front row center so that everyone had no choice but to admire the O. Even John Oliver thanked her in his speech because “she’s sitting right in front of me and it seems inappropriate not to.” Everyone bow down to Skinny Ope. PS White is NOT slimming so it’s even ballsier for her to wear that whoutfit and still look SAP.

We caught you ANNA, trying to sneak past the paps so you don’t have to talk about your divorce. Unfortunately this applique jewel toned dress does not allow you to hide.

69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

The sleeves. And the cutouts. And the dress made of old aluminum can tabs. I’m not sure which detail I hate more.

69th Primetime Emmy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 17 Sep 2017

This dress would’ve been fine if they didn’t tack on a foot of black feathers to the end.

Evan Rachel Wood

ERW’s commitment to wearing a suit to every red carpet is getting to be a bit much at this point. Take this tuxedo look for example, she’s wearing literally 3 jackets on top, all different lengths. As my friend Kat pointed out, from the back she looks like a beetle. Not great.

69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

LOVE my girl Reese, and obviously she looks good in whatever she wears but like come on. It’s the Emmy’s, not a women in business luncheon. Pick a different look.

I’m honestly surprised she didn’t just roll up in her jorts with her anus hanging out but having one scrap of fabric cover your bits is no better.

Emmys 2016 Recap

I missed the monologue (edit: then found it online and was immediately swayed to call at least one person a sneaky little crumpet-muncher this week) but I’m willing to give Jimmy Kimmel my stamp of approval as host because he’s pretty damn likeable and 90% of his jokes landed throughout the show. Even a Bill Cosby reference. Plus, his beef with Matt Damon should be old at this point but they found a way to keep it fresh. Also, he’s not Andy Samberg, who literally buzzkilled real hard last year. And that’s saying a lot since my power went out mid-show and I still missed half of his bits. Anyway, since my TV consumption pretty much begins and ends with trash, I don’t have a lot of knowledge of the nominees (except for People vs. OJ..prayers up that I watched something of “value” this year) but I do have a lot of snarky comments and here’s a brief recap of the 10 best things about the kickoff to the most wonderful time of the year—awards season.

1. Food jokes part 3. By law, there must always be a food bit at awards shows because Hollywood as a group, doesn’t eat. If you’ll recall we’ve already had pizzas delivered via Ellen at the Oscars and then a follow-up of girl scout cookies with Chris Rock. Kimmel went for a more traditional route by having his mom make everyone PB&J’s and I didn’t hate it. Mostly it just made me salivate for one, cut diagonally of course. Cin, could you whip one up and overnight it? Everyone knows a PB&J doesn’t taste good unless your mom has made it with love. It was a nice touch that Mrs. Kimmel also included a personal note in each sack lunch. I officially rank this bit above the girl scout cookies but will never hold a candle to A list celebs shoving a cheese slice in their pizza hole in evening wear.

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-10-42-24-pm

1a. JUice’s take on the Juice. As a part of this brown baggin it sketch, Jimmy also handed out juiceboxes and as an eternal fan of Ross’s tireless repeating of “Uncle Juice” for the entire season of The People vs. OJ, he fully deserved to be roasted via actual juicebox.

2. Claire Danes took a trip to the actual sun for tonight’s look. Unfortunately I missed Claire walking the red carpet but I can only hope that one of the interviewers asked her where she got her “glow” and then quickly answered for her “THE SUN?!”, Chandler Bing style. Wooooooooof to that spray tan girl. Double woof to an actual headline that I saw calling it a glow. That ain’t a glow. That’s toeing the line with blackface.

68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

3. John Mayer’s guitar face wins all the Emmy’s. If you’ve ever been a fan of J.May you know that he has an all-time guitar stank face. Since he’s decided to become an official deadhead and tour the country jam-band style instead of making new bangerz, I’ve really missed that pinched look gracing my TV. It was a wonderful surprise to see it before commercial breaks. The only thing that was missing was a T. Swizzy audience dance-fest cutaway. (Could’ve really used this for Hiddleston’s entrance as well…just sayin the Emmy’s was missing drama.) PS I don’t count moving the camera from Hiddleston to Mayer as drama. Stop being so immature, Emmys.

jmayguitarojohnmayerjohnmayeremmys

4. Comedy females crushed the genuine. Kate McKinnon won supporting actress for SNL and Julia Louis-Dreyfus won lead actress for Veep. Both ladies owned the acceptance speech. Kate brought the tears but wanted to clarify that they were real, which is important to know coming from a sketch actress. Julia apologized for creating an environment where it’s ok for politics to be a big ole joke but then it got real dusty in here when she talked about her dad dying a few days ago. We should all thank our parents for actually liking us because I imagine that can be difficult sometimes. (90% of the time, for me.)

5. KYLE CHANDLER, YAAASSSSSSS. Coach presents an award for something that I immediately ignored because I was busy slobbering all over how good he looked onstage. Clear eyes, full hearts, Kyle Chandler doesn’t age. Then Kit Harington and Andy Samberg do a bit about kissing him and he gets a second moment to shine. Obviously I would give Kyle Chandler a million kisses but I’ll also throw a smooch to whoever wrote him into the show this much. It was needed.

And not for nothing but I would also give all the kisses to Kit Harington as well. Swoon city.

6. Matt Damon makes me want to start snacking healthy again. Damon continues his beef with Kimmel by strolling onstage post-lose and showing that he actually can be hilarious…and also that he’s the most graceful apple eater on this earth. Seriously, when I bite into an apple one would think a horse has gotten loose with the chomping and apple spray that ensues. Matt managed to chew like a hot piece while simultaneously roasting Jimmy and I’m proud of him for it.

screen-shot-2016-09-19-at-8-20-15-am

7. Queen B lost, but Hova won. Lemonade didn’t win (middle fingers up) but Jay-Z got to write the COOLEST line a guy could give to his lady via acceptance speech. Sterling K. Brown of People vs. OJ won, and confidently closed his speech with the lyric “I got the hottest chick in the game rocking my chain.” So, like, he got laid last night.

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-10-41-53-pm

Seriously, it’s goals on goals to be called out like that. Then Courtney B. Vance tried to get all up on that, copycat style. And then a white guy ruined it later on…Typs.

courtney-vance

8. Ryan Murphy Isn’t God. Even though I was proud to have actually watched a show that won shit, I would never go so far as to say that the People vs OJ was the best show on TV this year. Either way, the actors in it snag all the awards but then when the series wins, they’re played off the second they touch the mic. To be clear, everyone and their mother talked over the music until it stopped and yet the entire cast of this show was like eh, ok and just let the insulting premature strings send them packing. Should’ve taken some notes from Aziz Ansari who got played off then doubled back once he got the mic again and gave his acceptance speech. Play by your own rules People vs. OJ. Bunch of squares.

aziz

9. Tori Kelly slays. Her acoustic version of “Hallelujah”gave me all the feels for the “insert celebrity name died this year, really?” portion of the show.

10. Byebyebyebyebyebyebyeeee. The final acceptance speech via the cast/crew of Game of Thrones ended with a stony-faced “bye bye” from a writer(?) possibly director or producer(?). Listen, I don’t know a damn thing about Game of Thrones other than that everyone watches it and there’s a lot of sex and murder but the biggest takeaway is that Bye Bye is SUPER weird unless you’re a marionette and you’re tacking on another bye. This might be all I remember from the 2016 Emmy’s and I respect this guy for it.

bye-bye-bye-nysnc-o

Bonus: As election season coincides with awards season, we should all get reaaalll used to the fact that all of Hollywood is “with her.” And the correlating jokes are about to get exhausting.

Summer’s over BOOOOOOOOOOOO times a trillion, but on the up and up, it’s awards season again and that’s something that I can totally get down with. Sunday’s were made for becoming a TV/Movie/Fashion critic from the couch. *And might I add that I have a brand new couch as of last week to break in (challenge accepted.) This year I raced back home from a weekend of drinking and made it just in the nick of time for the awards, so I can’t comment on what I’m sure was a RIVETING 3 hour block of red carpet fodder. I can, AND I WILL comment on the looks that “took a village” to create for our fave celebs.

Emmy’s 2015 Recap

emmys_nominations_full_list

If I didn’t have boozy root beer to get me through last night’s awards, I would have absolutely snoozed right through them. There were not enough SNL cast members bits and Andy Samberg told a bunch of dad jokes. If you didn’t catch my Red Carpet blog, I’ll just play my tiny violin one more time when I announce that simply by staying hydrated, I quite possibly ended the life of my fairly new Macbook. Come hell or high water though, I couldn’t let my thousands of screaming fans down and so I busted out the ole quill and ink during the show last night and took notes on some parchment paper… then my friend Lindsey lent me her laptop for the eve so I could deliver the goods. Someday she’ll receive royalties for this…today’s not that day. Anyway, I just wanted to make sure everyone properly ‘preciated the dedication I have to being the saltiest of Ju’s.

Lows:

-We have an immediate low when Andy Samberg kicks off the show with “Justin Timberlake is not going to be here, let’s get that out of the way.” WHAT AN OUTRAGEOUS LETDOWN. I hated Andy immediately. (FTR there WAS no JT…or JFALL for that matter.)

-Andy did two musical bits that made me want to slice my ears right off, the opener where he was a smelly underground creature who binge-watched every show and the unfortunately bloody “Emmy’s Can Kill” number later in the show.

emmykill

-A pretend beef between Andy and Amy where they just pan to Amy giving a dirty look. This would have been 10,000 times funnier if he was talking and Amy stormed the stage and said ” ANDY, WHAT’S GOOD?”

-John Stamos takes the stage with Gina Rodriguez where they make everyone uncomfy by hitting on each other, I don’t even recall them presenting an award. Although I would give my left leg to have Uncle Jesse get all up on me and whisper sweet nothings in my ear.

-Empire stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard present and ooze the awksies. They try to banter but it’s weird and ends in a cheek smooch not a minute too soon.

empire

-Olive Kitteridge wins 1 trillion awards, which is great for something no one had ever heard of, also sets up Andy for some new dadtastic material:

-Tracy Morgan makes his comeback to a standing O, gets serious for a minute then quickly says he’s gon get a lot of women pregnant at the after parties. Eeekkk.

-Apple Music debuts a new commercial with Taraji, Kerry Washington and Mary J. Blige where they essentially embody every girls night pregame ever and listen to 90’s hip hop and dance. Stop trying so hard, Apple.

betches applemusic

-There’s a quick break for a guy to get onstage and talk about college students and states “Today’s college students are tomorrow’s Emmy winning artists.” This should probably be the tagline of Marist College’s Radio/TV/Film major. Slap that in the brochure. #NotBitterAtAll #PerpetuallyFunemployed

Highs:

-Hollywood’s leading men show us that the Emmy’s aren’t worth picking up the razor for.

beards-01-600x800

-Apparently it was like 1 billion degrees in LA last night and therefore everyone had the shiniest of foreheads. STARS SWEAT JUST LIKE US!

mariolopez

-Andy MOSTLY sucked, but here were his two best one liners, in my honest opinion: “Racism is over. Don’t fact check that,” from his monologue when he talked about how this is the most diverse group of nominees ever. And while introducing Adrian Brody to the stage, “The only person I can stand next to and say I’ve got a cute little button nose.” This was awesome because Brody had to take the stage after hearing that.

-“We Are Amy.” Two funny Amy’s present the first award, get a makeup and hair touchup before taking the stage and then talk about how they’re going to be judged for what they wore (sarrryyy) and how Amy’s going to black out later. Out of all the presenters, these two were best at actually being funny.

blackout

-Ricky Gervais uses his time presenting to pretend he won an Emmy since he was snubbed before…this is only funny because everyone hated Ricky and shit all over him when he hosted and he knows it so he milks his stage time just to irritate people.

-James Corden mocks the vote counters of Ernst & Young, then selfies with them.

emmys_James_Corden_3447300k

-Jimmy Kimmel announces that he could easily give the Emmy to whoever he wants, like Joey Tribbiani for example, then eats the card with the winner on it. The only thing that makes this entertaining is that Matt LeBlanc didn’t win and showed that he didn’t love the Friends dig.

jkimmel mattleblancjimmykimmel

-Best moment of the night is obviously awarded to Amy Poehler…in an excrutiatingly boring show, she managed to make me giggle uncontrollably just by throwing on a hoodie and some shades in her DGAF act while being nominated for Parks & Rec. The camera panned to her multiple times for reaction shots and it was gold every single time.

amy

-Regina King wins (I’m guessing it’s a long time coming since she was in A Cinderella Story many moons ago) and her gal pal Taraji presents it then screeches for her. What a ride or die friend.

-Andy Samberg gives out login info for HBO Go, which is nice for people who don’t have HBO and really want to see what this Olive Kitteridge bologna is all about, but what I could really use is a Hulu login for The Mindy Project this season. PS if you missed it: username-khaleesifan3@emmyhost.com, password-password1

-Amy Schumer wins for Inside Amy and is so excited and flustered that she thanks her head writer first who “had a baby like 10 seconds ago” and whoever created her smokey eye. Keep doing you, girl.

smokeyeye

-Jon Hamm beached whales it onto the stage for his W, except he looks like a stealth agent instead of a floundering sea urchin like I absolutely would have. He gets real serious after that…BOOOOOO.

hamm

-Viola Davis makes history with her win and Taraji hugs the shit out of her proving to be the best hype girl, even when she loses. I would like her to come over and cheer for me as I accomplish day to day tasks.

This outfit gives Tatiana an unfortunate jenis, err I guess since she’s wearing a tuxedo, a tuxenis.

Chains were apparently suuupes trend-doggs this year. I don’t love it. I also don’t love Hugh’s woof bedhead.

Eye sore dress.

Maisie decided to turn the Emmy’s into MK&A’s Sleepover Party, I guess.

  

I don’t know, I’m just not feeling anything about this look.

It certainly is Amy’s year but c’mon. This is not a flattering pick. Props for the hand fan though, I used to love setting that bad boy up on my desk at school only to have an immature little grubber stick his fingers in it while it was running.

Look! It’s the just sewn together cupcake.

  

Besides the very 70’s curtains bottom, that bright blue smokey eye is roof stooof.

I quite literally shrieked in fear when I saw this. American Horror Story is correct.

Matt LeBlanc looks like he’s working red carpet security detail. Bruh, act like you’ve been here before.

Julie Bowen kept it simple and crushed it.

Sassy suits and setting an example for red carpet bros.

Wears the same dress every red carpet and yet, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

This is a lot, but at the same time fits well and she’s workin it.

Matching lips and dress combo deal

Emma went ole Hollywood glam on this one and I’m all aboard.
