Whenever I get the chance, I always try to watch the earlier showing of the Emmys. How is this thing still three hours long? For the first time in a long time, I actually stayed pretty quiet on social media this time around. We didn’t live tweet the red carpet this year – mainly because I was still watching the Seahawks game during it and we didn’t tweet during the show. Overall, I think the show had a slow start. Stephen Colbert was okay as a host, but the biggest takeaway for me tonight was all of the people recognized. The most exciting part of the awards show was being able to celebrate a more diverse group of winners than ever before. What did everyone else think?
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the SAG Awards this weekend more than I thought I would! I’m not happy with the way the state of the world is right now and it sounds like I’m not the only one. I felt relieved to hear actors voicing their thoughts and opinions all over the award show though, but more importantly in their speeches. I’ve never been in this camp that separates actors and actresses into just celebrities – to be honest, that whole perception bothered me. We’re people! We’re all living in this country – in this world and what happens to me also impacts them. Here are my favorite speeches from the award show. It’s all crazy, funny, and heartfelt and we love it.
I spent a great deal of time today glued to my TV. Those hours of the red carpet and the actual award show aren’t hours that I can get back. My two takeaways? Well, I didn’t watch enough good movies in the last year and everyone that tried to pull off a long-sleeved dress this year on the red carpet failed. I did have a couple of favorite looks though and they came from those that surprised me! I always like doing this post the night of the award show so that people can have something to scroll through when morning comes around so with that here are my favorite looks as well as those that missed the mark.
I’m actually tired of this trend with dresses being one shouldered and have been for awhile, however, I love this color on Viola and she looks stunning. I also like that she decided to simplify both her and makeup so that the dress could just do its thing. The head-scratching moment of the night for this dress was when Ryan Seacrest asked her what color her dress was while everyone at home was like “um, can’t you tell what color this is?”

Very rarely am I ever impressed by anything SJP wears. She looks like a marshmallow in this gown and I’m not happy with the way she styled her hair. The only way this look could redeem itself is if it were sleeveless and her hair were let down.
The Emmy Awards started a half hour before the Seahawks Vs. Packers game so I only got to see 30 minutes of the show, but from what I saw of Andy Samberg’s intro – I probably didn’t miss that much. I did, however, peep the red carpet and tonight’s celebrities, winners, and presenters did not disappoint. This evening produced a lot of great looks that I’m excited to share! Normally, I would not be impressed by this dress if I saw it on the runway, but Kerry Washington is stunning in it.
Since I was in the midst of traveling today, I missed the entire red carpet. However, in looking at all of the highlights, I wasn’t disappointed by the looks. We’re kicking things off with Emma Stone today and it looks like she’s falling some sort of a pattern this award show season.
On Golden Globe night, I had a very difficult decision to make. I could either watch the award show or grab dinner with some friends and watch Selma. In the end, I chose to let the show go, but only because I was able to watch the red carpet and felt like I got what I needed. Within the first 30 minutes of the E! Live Red Carpet show, I wasn’t impressed with any of the looks, but as the program went on, I felt like I had something positive to say about nearly every look. This morning, we’re kicking things off with Dakota Johnson. I never read 50 Shades of Grey, but now that I’ve been seeing more ads, I’m becoming much more curious about the film. I love that she chose this gown because she looks fantastic in it, but if I could change anything about this look, I would’ve wanted her to go completely sleek with her hair just to make it look like she didn’t walk straight out of the movie trailer we’ve been seeing for the past month.
YES, this is the dress that I would have loved to see Jennifer in at the Golden Globes, but better late than never. We all know that Jennifer is partial to Dior so it’s a no-brainer, but the slim fit and dark color is doing wonders for her on the red carpet. We’re pretty happy with this pick.
Brie has come such a long way from starring in her sitcom with Bob Saget. I was excited about her in 21 Jump Street, but now she’s taken on a handful of roles that shed some light on how mature she has grown up to be and what a dynamic actress she is about to become.
