3 Best & Worst of the Emmys
I hosted my first Emmy viewing party. I plan to have them each year until I get an invite to real thing! As a former beauty and style blogger, my party started at 6 p.m. with the red carpet, of course.Here are my most memorable moments and people from television’s big night:
1. “Breaking Bad”
They saved the best for last when “Breaking Bad” won best drama series. It’s my favorite show right now, and it was great to see the amazing lead actor Bryan Cranston (who sadly didn’t win his category), so excited for the show’s win as it nears its series finale. It was also wonderful to see Jesse – I mean, cutie supporting actor Aaron Paul (another disappointing loss in his category) – celebrate the win, with his wife and mother as his guests for the night.
Anna Gunn, second from left, won best supporting actress in a drama series, and her dress was my favorite! I loved the cool cut and texture of the black top and the elegant pale pink contrasted bottom. I also liked Jewel’s delicate dress. There was a lot of feminity on the red carpet this year.
Washington carried on the trend of the elaborate, feminine dress. “Scandal” is one of my favorite shows, and I wanted Kerry to win best actress in a drama series, especially since she is only the second black woman in a lead role on primetime – the first since the legendary Diahann Carroll in the early 1970s. She lost, and the Emmys seemed to give her a nod (and attempt to appease the many fans of “Scandal”) by having Washington present earlier that night with Carroll, who lavished praise on to her.
3. Kevin Spacey
Perhaps the funniest moment of the show was during the opening when Kevin Spacey turned to face the camera and began commenting on the scripted chaos on stage in his “House of Cards” character’s typical way.
