Emmy Weekend Fine and Fug: Anna Chlumsky


Giuliana asked her if she was tired of being asked about My Girl. She was polite, but my feeling is, she’s tired of people asking if she’s tired of being asked about My Girl. And she has a point — she was an EMMY NOMINEE for Veep. Would it have killed Giuliana to — wait, hang on, trying to make sense of her is a fruitless errand.

Emmys Well Played, Amy Poehler and Hayden Panettiere

These two dresses are surprisingly similar, considering that one of them is knocked up:

Amy looks great in this, but I must confess that when I saw her, I thought, “I miss Tina.” Cut to Tina Fey at home, kicking back with some Cheetos and wearing pajama bottoms, all, “I DON’T.”

I just hope Amy posed for a cheeky Who Wore It Best with Hayden:

Emmys Meh Carpet: Melissa McCarthy in Marchesa


I am profoundly unmoved.

Melissa McCarthy at the Emmys

These telecasts make me impatient nowadays — they’re never about celebrating all the nominated work; just the preeners who get asked to present — but I did laugh out loud during the fake Q&A when Melissa McCarthy asked about being towed and then blamed it on Edie Falco telling her she was okay to park illegally and leave a note, and finished it with a glare at Edie and uttered a bruised, “That came out of NOWHERE.” It was a very well-delivered line. My point being: Melissa McCarthy is very inspiring as an intellect and a comedic performer, and she just hasn’t found anything for the red carpet that’s worthy of her, and that bums me out. As does this funereal tea cosy.

Emmys Well Played: Halle Berry

It doesn’t sound like her foray into TV has been great.

Luckily, other than that piece of hair in her face, the whole Being Halle Berry business still seems to be cruising along just fine.

Emmys Fug or Fab: Robin Wright


fug-or-fab

I don’t totally understand why Robin Wright didn’t walk the red carpet at the Emmys. She was nominated for House of Cards, and, not for nothing, when you get free clothes from a designer, I tend to think all they want from you are some photographs that can show up in magazines or on the Internet. Thank God for Instagram, I guess; maybe they made this deal and everyone was happy.

Then again, maybe she didn’t love this, and so she kept it severe with her makeup and didn’t really mess with things like accessories or even a proper hem. The thing is, while the jumpsuit has issues, it’s also very clean and crisp and she ALMOST really sells it from the front. But the back throws things a bit:

Emmys Fug Carpet: Katherine Heigl


It makes me laugh that SOMEONE was out by the valet, getting people as soon as they spilled out of the limo:

Even Heigl seems to be like, “REALLY. I’m standing on a grease stain.” All I know is, once she is a Lady of a Certain Age, this is going to be GREAT. I just think she should maybe have saved it.  Imagine this with purple hair and some crazy jewelry, in 2041. Let’s revisit it then!
