2013 Emmy Awards Roundup

Let’s start with the red carpet, shall we? Ok, sad life. I didn’t get to watch the Emmys red carpet! Heartbreak. I was able to catch most of the ceremony and post coverage though.


Drama: BREAKING BAD! I watch everything, but this was the most deserved award of the night.

Breaking Bad WIN 2013 Emmy Awards
They all looked great and beautiful and I love them

Lead Actor in a Drama: Jeff Daniels. WHAT?!?! Listen, I like Newsroom as much as the next, but he was the last one I expected to win in the category.

Lead Actress in a Drama: Claire Danes. Her ugly cry on Homeland needs an Emmy of it’s own. Brava.

Supporting Actress in a Drama: Anna Gunn for Breaking Bad. She deserved it. But, all of the women in the category deserved it.

Supporting Actor in a Drama: Not Aaron Paul. NOT AARON PAUL? Fuck everything.

Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series: David Fincher for House of Cards. Thumbs up.

Comedy: Modern Family. I can get behind that.

Lead Actress in a Comedy: Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I haven’t watched Veep yet, but everyone says it’s amazing so she probably deserved it.

Lead Actor in a Comedy: Jim Parsons. How Big Bang Theory wins anything is beyond me.

Supporting Actress in a Comedy: Merritt Wever. I don’t watch this show but her amazing acceptance speech made me want to.

Supporting Actor in a Comedy: Tony Hale. I didn’t expect that. Again, I haven’t seen Veep yet but compared to the other nominees, I didn’t expect him to win.

Miniseries or Movie: Behind the Candelabra. BOOM. So much win.

Like I said, I missed the red carpet. A lot of looks seemed typical and safe but these are some that stood out to me from what I did manage to see:

Claire Danes 2013 Emmy Awards
I love this look on Claire Danes. She looked so delicate and soft in this Armani Prive. Her glowing makeup and faux-bob were perfect ensembles and didn’t overwhelm.
Julianne Hough 2013 Emmy Awards
Julianne Hough was risky! I love that this is so risky. I think the fabric choice, gorgeous greige color, and classic styling helped keep this Jenny Packham gown from venturing into vulgar.
Kiernan Shipka 2013 Emmy Awards
Isn’t she a doll? Kiernan Shipka is only 13 and quickly becoming a fashion icon. I love how this Delpozo dress is age appropriate and reflects her personal style. She looked perfectly precious.
Christina Hendricks 2013 Emmy Awards
Christina, my love. I’ll admit I wanted to see a little something more from her but she looked amazing in this Christian Siriano black fit and flair. The dress hugs her famous shape perfectly and the lace shoulders are lovely.
Jane Lynch 2013 Emmy Awards
Again, personal style. No one rocks a pant suit like 6 foot tall Jane Lynch. She went safe but the styling is what pulled it all together.
Michelle Dockery 2013 Emmy Awards
Michelle Dockery stayed far away from the pastel trend with this bold multi-colored Prada gown. I love this style and silhouette on her slender frame.
Elizabeth Moss 2013 Emmy Awards
This black and white dress Andrew Gn dress looked stunning on Elizabeth Moss. Her red lip and platinum locks gave it a cool and classy edge.

I do appreciate the ones that took risks but I can’t say I loved them. Come onnnn…

Lena Dunham 2013 Emmy Awards
I like this Prada dress. I just don’t know what happened when she put it on. It didn’t synch her waist enough. The tie on the back bothers me. It just didn’t give her the shape she needed in anyway. There is so.much.fabric. The makeup and styling is just…no. This just wasn’t right on her.
Zosia Mamet 2013 Emmy Awards
Another one of the Girls. Zosia is a cool chick. She likes to push boundries with her fashion choices. She definitely dressed for her personality. I almost like this Honor dress, except for the weird black mask of Zorro and sheer bib dragging her boobs down. SO CLOSE. I appreciate the risk she took.

What’s going on with these??

Connie Britton Emmys 2013
Did Connie Britton wrap a curtain around herself and call it a day? This Naeem Khan gown is a no for me.
Melissa Leo Emmys 2013
Lol wut? She looks like a hipster circus ringmaster. WHY?
Everyone is talking about how inexpensive Sarah Silverman’s sexy LBD was. It’s true! She bought this dress online from a store I frequent, Pinup Girl Clothing, for $60! I think she looks great.

Thoughts on the overall ceremony: I love NPH. He’s an amazing host. The ceremony as a whole was weird, sad, and random but that’s better than boring, right? I watch almost every show nominated so I felt like I needed to be there to cheer all of my my TV friends on!
