Emmy Awards Man Fugs and Fabs


I’m sorry, Fug Nation. None of our subscriptions had any photos of the Cumberbatch. Will you accept Thomas Jane looking like a lunatic as a peace offering?

… No? Okay, then there’s a treat for you at the end. Which is working correctly now that said treat is placed where I INTENDED it to be placed. Sigh. Technology.

    What? No Batch…..that is just all shades of wrong, as worn by Thomas Jane

    SERIOUSLY?!?! I don’t understand. The Cumby was nominated as a leading actor. LEADING ACTOR. He stuck napkins on his forehead on the red carpet. Martin Freeman, also a nominee, was his date. HOW, and by that I mean, HOW is there no Emmy coverage of these two whatsoever?!

    Re: Jeremy Davies… Do the Fuggirls not watch Justified? That is his Dickie Bennett hair. In fact, I’m pretty sure he came wearing exactly what Dickie would wear (H to T) to a black tie event.

    And for the record, Jon Hamm – aaaooooogggggaaaaa!

      I do, but I thought Dickie was dead. Maybe he’s not, though. I can’t remember what the hell happened at the end of this past season.

        I don’t watch Justified.

          Heather, you are seriously missing out on one of the best shows on TV. Find the DVDs stat! It’s terrific! (Plus you’ll get to see why Jeremy Davies looks the way he does. Well, at least his hair–which is shaved in patches and an all-around good-godawful mess that I doubt could be styled short of using cement as hair gel. The clothes, however, I can’t say are–wait for it–justified . . .)

        I honestly can’t remember either. I think he got shot but is maybe still alive? He’s sort of like a cockroach that way. But Heather has a point about the general aesthetic there – even if Justified is filming right now, there is no excuse for styling that hair that way or dressing like that off set lol.

        Dickie is alas dead, speaking of Justified, can we talk about my crush on Timothy Olyphant?….:)

          oh god i was desperately hoping for a glimpse of olyphant (with his natural salt and pepper hair) in formalwear. i’m with you.

        Dickie’s still alive! (And probably in jail again?) I just read an interview with him where he said that he’ll be back next season.

          Dickie is NOT dead. And I love, love, love Jeremy Davies, and everyone else on that show for that matter (maybe not Natalie Zea, but let’s ignore her). He looks adorable in his dress-up clothes, even with his nutty Dickie hair.

    Damien Lewis has been added to my list of Sigh-Worthy men. Cumberbatch is a contender. I don’t know who Harry Shum is, but he’s a cutie.

        In other news, is that a price tag on the bottom of Costner’s Emmy/Stein of Mead? If so, it was on sale.

    You know, I’m not necessarily against men without ties at the Emmys, but I really wish Kevin Costner had put one on. He ended up looking so disheveled and sloppy.

    However, I have never seen Damien Lewis in anything, but I will now be seeking out Homeland. That is one good looking man.

      Ooh, and he looked SO GOOD in that tux. I love a well-deployed shawl collar on a tux. And a redhead who looks good in it!

      Watch Band of Brothers (about the first paratroopers in WWII). SO, SO many handsome men… in uniforms, being brave and selfless. Also, well written and acted ^_^

      • Val Cook

        Clarification – Damien Lewis is a lead in Band of Brothers; plus, since much of it was filmed in Britain and it is a mini-series, there are many smaller roles with British actors that are fun to recognize. Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Simon Pegg, to name a few….

        • JM

          Band of Brothers is where I fell in love with Damien Lewis and why I started watching Homeland.

    I need to watch Homeland obviously because when I see Damien Lewis all I can think of is the dreadful Soames from the Forsyte Saga

    • Agent Sculder

      Soames was terrible, but he’s super-hot in a little movie called Assassin in Love. It made me forget the total ickiness of Soames in about 5 seconds.

    Don’t hate me, but on someone with personal grooming, SHOES and no wacko hat, at an event slightly less formal, the red pants, grey shirt and darker crimson jacket would actually look pretty awesome. I’m thinking WIllem Dafoe would rock it.

    And thanks for the treat at the end, even though it’s sad there were no pictures of him in the formal wear. If nothing else, Sherlock has taught him how to wear the hell out of a suit.

    In a related note, although he’s a fabulous actor, you should put Martin Freeman on your watch list for fug madness seeds when the Hobbit press junket gets going. His style is, um, idiosyncratic.

    SCHMIDT! I love him. Those pics with his wife, one after the other, just made me smile bigger and bigger. So cute.

    Thanks for your Cumber-some efforts (sorry…just got into the spirit of the captions!) As one who is in love with the series Sherlock, they are much appreciated. BC is one of those who grew on me in the looks department because of his acting skills. Sherlock is pretty spectacular.

    People! You all need to go immediately to your local library and get “Band of Brothers,” “The Forsyte Saga,” and “Shakespea Re-Told.” Not to mention the TV series “Life.” Yes, I’m talking abut Damien Lewis, and those are really good shows too. Plus, Damien Lewis!

    • Sandra

      Preach it, sister! I’ve always had a soft spot for redheads and Damien has been one of my Imaginary Boyfriends ever since Lt. Winters first graced the screen. I don’t know if GFY Jessica and GFY Heather still have access to the old TWOP re-caps of that series, but they’re a great read if you can find them.

      I’ve also crushed on Benedict Cumberbatch since he played William Pitt to Ioan Gruffudd’s William Wilberforce in Amazing Grace.

    @Stefanie, I am maybe the only heterosexual female fan of “Mad Men” whose boat is not floated by Jon Hamm. I think that he is extremely talented and objectively very handsome (because I am not blind), but– (shrugs).

    Now Benedict Cumberbatch- he does it for me. I don’t know, I guess I dig his weird bony patrician face.

    I’m sort of surprised you had nothing to say about Brendan Coyle and his giant bow tie and weird transition-lenses glasses.

    Thanks for some Cumberbatch! Love him. He’s pretty much the only reason I had the Emmys on at all, and I was bummed there wasn’t more of him–and that he and Martin Freeman didn’t win, because they are both spectacular on Sherlock (which also should have won over Game Change, come on). And because I relish any opportunity to hear Benedict’s beautiful voice.

    I really wish Fringe had been nominated for anything, because a) it’s an incredibly well-written and acted show and b) this slide show would then have included Pacey on the red carpet.

    But now I realize that Damien Lewis is incredibly hot, so thanks for that.

    Heather, the next time Jon Cryer does anything just go with the “I think it’s just DUCKY that he won…” I mean, really, all of us over thirty are already thinking it.

    So, I really didn’t get the Cumberbatch love until I foundout he’s actually a redhead. All of the pics I had seen were of him as a brunette (and one really unfortunate shot as a blonde) and then I saw what his natural look is and I kinda got it. Then I saw him interviewed on a British chat show and I really understood it. I love that smart, dry, droll sense of humor on a guy.

    • Agent Sculder

      I think poor Benedict Cumberbatch’s hair is dyed for almost movie he’s in, poor guy. His natural color is great! I don’t know why he never gets to rock it!

      I think BC’s one of those guys who tends to grow on you, rather than immeadiately striking you as sexy. That said, I would listen to the man read a phone book because THAT VOICE is to die for.

    My takeaway from this series of pictures is that men in Hollywood are allowed to age somewhat naturally. I’m sad that most women in Hollywood are not or are not choosing to because they think roles will dry up. There are exceptions, of course. Billy Crystal looks ridiculous and Glenn Close looks beautiful.

    #2 Jeremy Davies: Hair – acceptable. Shoes – Oh, honey, NO. (Didn’t notice vest until you mentioned it, but agree.)

    #12 Rico Rodriguez: LOVE

    Not to sound ungrateful for your Cumberbatch efforts (because I am, truly, grateful), but … whither Martin Freeman? He is adorable, and charming, and he and Benedict together are just sheer awesomeness.

    Thanks for this round up.
    Such a shame, though, that your feed didn’t have any shots of Benedict Cumberbatch. From the few partial shots I saw, his suit was gorgeous. And he’s such a fantastic actor that it would have been great to have him featured here.

    As someone mentioned upthread, he was a lead actor nominee, he had Martin Freeman as his “date”, Martin Freeman, who, may I remind you, is the lead in the upcoming Hobbit movies (no small thing) and they are the charming leads in one of the top shows in the UK, which has garnered worldwide attention. How did no one in the press pick up on this and at least think to take one picture of the either one of them. Oh, well, maybe next year, for Parade’s End. (Speaking of which, you should seek out stills from that BBC production, for some awesome costumes…and be sure to check it out when it airs on HBO next year.)

    Jeremy Davies genuflected to other actors? Literally? I’m confused. Am I missing a significant TV reference?

    Even with the bed-hair, Jeremy Davies is much cuter than that Cumberbatch guy.

    Has anyone ever seen the movie Stander from a few/bunch of years ago? Thomas Jane rocks and is super hot as a South African Apartheid-era cop who becomes a bankrobbing folk-hero outlaw after losing it after one of these horrific white-cop-against-black-protesters situations in which he shoots dead a protester. BTW, it’s a TRUE STORY. He’s super great in it and looks amazing – especially in this one naked dancing scene… Anyway, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for him. All that to say if he would JUST WEAR SHOES and TONE DOWN THE CRAZY JUST A SMIDGE he wouldn’t be such a legitimate joke on GFY. Oh well.

    I’m not into Cumberbatch. God, how I love his name. But he just seems too smug and not in that charmingly-Englishly-smug way.

    I do, however, ADORE Aaron Paul. And Cranston!

    I find Benedict’s forehead terrifyingly more tanned than the rest of him. I… just… yeah. I think he is pretty attractive once you get used to his bone structure (and have seen him act, holy cow), but not when he is two different colours like that. It’s… distracting.

    • HannahLee

      In an interview BC mentioned that he had scarring on his forehead from prosthetics used during his performances in Frankenstein at the National Theatre, and that LA sun makes it works, so that may be what you’re seeing Scanderoon.

    Sorry, gotta say it: Don’t know his acting, which may be great, but…Cumberbatch does absolutely nothing for me. He’s kind of…let’s put it gently…not so handsome.

    • Sandra

      I disagree on his level of attractiveness, but I will allow that he is so much hotter on screen than is evidenced in still pictures. He’s definitely not the boy next door and he isn’t a matinee idol either, but holy Jebus is he talented. And that is better than being conventionally good-looking.

    Another dare I say it: Damien Lewis so much hunkier than Jon Hamm. I cannot begin to fathom what I would do to him. :D

    Yeah Schmidt! I don’t really like New Girl but when I watch it he’s my fav and I still heart Officer Leo from Veronica Mars. I’m also pleased to report that my roommate ran into him at Trader Joe’s and said he was very nice and chatted briefly with her about something like how they both love Annie’s Cheesy Bunnies.

    I don’t get how TJane goes everywhere shoeless. i would think insurance regs, etc, would keep him out of most public places.

    I will never for the life of me understand why nobody managed to get a proper photo of either Sherlock lead. They’re both involved in an utterly huge, highly-anticipated movie. And everyone forgot they were there. Baffling.

    And, for purposes of fug/fab — I thought the bright red handkerchief was great on Freeman. Considering most of the other men were dressed so as to be indistinguishable from the ushers, and many of the ones that weren’t looked insane, I thought it was a nice touch. Nothing horribly flashy, just a little color.
