Ahhh...the Emmys.

A total non sequiter in the awards season, as it occurs months ahead of all other awards shows, but whatevs! On to the snark.

This list is in no way exhaustive. I have opinions on lots of other gowns, but these are some of my own highlights and lowlights.

Here are my least favorite ensembles of the evening.

Seriously? I swear Debra Messing wore this exact same dress two seasons ago.

I think Hayden Panettiere might be hiding small children under her skirt like Mother Ginger in "The Nutcracker Suite."

I see Rebecca Romijn rocking the Tyra arm chub. I can't figure out where it came from though since she usually has such a slamming body. It's like stunt chub or something.

Again with the dress you've worn a thousand times before?!? What the eff? Ugh, I'm so bored with Teri Hatcher with her pneumatic boobs and botoxed forehead.

Ok, this really hurts. I have loved Elizabeth Perkins since "Big" and adore her show "Weeds." Basically this was fabric for a skirt at Anthropologie gone awry.

The outfits I liked!

While I'm a little confused by the massive influx of mermaid tail gowns and I stopped watching Grey's Anatomy when they started interviewing a neurosurgeon and a cardiothoracic surgeon for the chief of the GENERAL surgery department (hint, the chief is usually a general surgeon. Couldn't they find a real doctor to consult on that show?). I happen to love Katherine Heigl in this gown. The red lip was nice, but not scary and the neckline is super sweet.

My feelings on Wisteria Lane extend only to the following noise: (insert cacophonous vomiting sounds here). However, Eva Longoria looks stunning in this dress, I love the spangles and I happen to think short for evening is so modern.

Whoa, Heidi's not preggers! For once! Well, she looks amazing and I think this is the best color ever. I would wear a muumuu in this color. The neckline is more interesting than a typical strapless gown, and she was the only person who pulled off the leg-poking-out-of-her-slit look. I just wish Seal had buttoned his collar.

I happen to think Edie Falco looks good at most ceremonies. Not breaking ground or anything, but also doesn't look like mutton dressed as lamb. Just classic elegant and beautiful looking. See also: Sally Field.

So, office faves? People you trashed? Because, let's face it, no one is doing any work today.

I love The Office and I love Jenna Fisher and the character she plays, but I wasn't fond of the big bow, the dress would have been prettier without it.

I didn't get the big bow thing either, but she is very cute. I thought Minnie Driver looked great in yellow. I thought Joely Fisher was baring a bit too much, I was a little worried when she moved.

I also loved Katherine Heigl's dress, I'm usually not a fan of the mermaid cut but she looked great.

Ali Larter was my favorite. Her low maintenance hair, the red dress, perfect fit. Loved it...

2nd on Ali Larter...she is so beautiful no matter what she wears, but in that red dress she was just gorgeous.

I loved Heidi too, but all the "fashion police" shows on TV have been against the look. I thought she looked so glamorous!

Loved Sandra Oh's simple dress -- a nice comeback after that weird ensemble she had on last year.

Jessorz said...

definitely agree, i loved Sandra Oh's dress.

but i'm going to have to disagree with you, CapHillBarbie, about Debra Messing. I think she always looks great.
