I didn’t manage to catch the Emmys this year and, honestly, I rarely ever do. I think part of the reason is that they continuously ignore a lot of shows I think are fantastic. I can rattle off many recent examples: Hannibal, Justified, Black Sails, Community, Orphan Black, Legion, and until this year, The Americans…but the most egregious snub of all-time is probably The Wire!
Well, at least a few of my favorites got a lot of love this year (The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, Westworld), and even The Americans picked up a few nominations in what was possibly their least exciting season.
In any case, I did manage to check out the red carpet looks after the fact and here are my very inconsequential judgments.
We’ll start with my favorites!
Top 10 Emmy 2017 Looks
I love this dress on its own, but it gets a boost with
a dazzling Ellie Kemper. This is a fabulous color on a redhead.

Lovely. There’s a little bit of the zig zag girl illusion going on in the middle.
The Oscars cap off the end of awards season in Hollywood. I posted my favorite and least-favorite dresses from last night’s ceremony, but here are some of my highlights from other ceremonies that took place earlier this year.
That has to be one of Mel Gibson’s many daughters, right?
Seriously missing Cate Blanchett on the red carpet.
I like Jimmy Kimmel as host better than I thought I would.
Is Gael Garcia Bernal teeny-tiny, or is Hailee Steinfeld an Amazon princess?
So glad I stayed up for the Best Picture speeches.
But really, we all watch the Oscars for the dresses, anyway, right? I mean, I’ve literally only seen four of the Oscar-nominated movies this year—The Jungle Book, Star Trek Beyond, Trolls, and Zootopia. Such is life with little kids.
