There was a lot of red on last night’s carpet. That’s not always easy to pull off, but some ladies, like winner Kate Winslet did.  Other big colors were blue and different hues of pink and purple. The guys weren’t much of a presence during the arrivals but they did look good in their suits. Take a look at my picks for best dressed!

 Evan Rachel Wood was one of my favorites with this black Elie Saab gown

Christina Hendricks looked lovely in this Johanna Johnson gown

Emmy Awards 2011 – Full List of Winners and Funniest Line of the Show

Jane Lynch!

Host Jane Lynch did a great job with this year’s show. Her opening number featured her going from one show to another in a big apartment building,  dropping in on Mad Men and The Big Bang Theory.

Jane later delivered the best joke of the night while introducing the cast of HBO’s Entourage: “Many people ask why I’m a lesbian.  Ladies and gentlemen, the cast of ‘Entourage’!”

Ummm...wow. Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher Photo: Access Hollywood

Other big moments were Charlie Sheen acknowledging his former show and it’s new star. “From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for the upcoming season.” Was he sincere, maybe? His Comedy Central Roast just happens to be airing tonight, but Ashton Kutcher returned the sentiments on Twitter.

Amy Poehler jumped on stage when her name for Outstanding Actress In A Comedy was called, prompting the other ladies in the category to join her in stage. Melissa McCarthy was literally crowned the winner, she was given a tiara and a bouquet of flowers. It was a pretty good show, with some memorable moments that actually ended on time. Take note, Oscars!

Lady Gaga Looking FIERCE at LAX This Afternoon – THRILLED About Emmy Nominations

Gaga looks AMAZING. The End.

Wow.  Of course it’s more shocking to see Gaga looking a bit, well, dressed down, but man, what I wouldn’t do for this entire ensemble.  The Loubs, the LV train case, the Chanel earrings and sunnies–ALL OF IT (okay, minus the hat).  She looks TREMENDOUS!

Once Lady Gaga returned to the States from her concert in Sidney, Australia, she Tweeted:

“Just landed with incredible news to share. The Monster Ball is nominated for Five Emmy Awards! I’m crying, so proud!”

As for her Emmy noms, Gaga’sMonster Ball Tour at Madison Square GardenHBO Special is up for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special, Outstanding Directing and three technical bids for Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special; Outstanding Lighting Design/ Lighting Direction for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special; and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Special.



I sure hope Gaga attends the ceremony to support HBO.  It was a fantastic special!
