While the night’s final two awards – best comedy and best drama – weren’t big surprises either, you can’t argue that the shows aren’t good TV (though I can complain bitterly that Parks & Recreation was robbed – robbed I say). Modern Family picked up its second consecutive win and Mad Men its fourth.
And now, onto the real awards: the fashion. Everyone, it seemed, was seeing red on the red carpet. Everyone from Glee’s Lea Michele to The Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev, Kate Winslet, Connie Britton, Kerry Washington, Adrianne Palicki and Angela Kinsey showed up in red.
To make up for Glee only picking up previously awarded guest star and casting honors at the Emmys this year, here are the rest of its lovely, lovely ladies.
Game of Thrones star and perpetual lesbian crush Lena Headey was also there as was out actress and fairly crushworthy Evan Rachel Wood, both visions in black. Suddenly I feel like they should work together in a project, immediately.
Still, the night’s biggest “My stylist secretly hates me”-moment came courtesy Gwyneth Paltrow. Her bizarre midriff-baring ensemble almost made it look like the famously fit actress had a muffin top. Yeah, it’s no longer a secret, honey. Your stylist really does hate you.
To cleanse the palate, here are a few more ladies looking absolutely lovely. Sofia Vergara, Christina Hendricks, Archie Panjabi and Maria Bello’s stylists by all appearances do not hate them. Or, well, nothing approaching Gwynethian levels.
So, what did you think of the show? Want Jane back as Emmy host? Who won the battle of the red dress? And who shoulda, coulda, woulda won the awards in your book? Dicuss. (Go to EW.com for the full list of winners.)
