Big winners and beautiful fashion still reign supreme at the 2010 Emmy Awards
There were ups and there were downs, there were winners and there were losers, there were some surprises and some no-brainers, and then there was Betty White, so how bad could it have really been? The 2010 Emmy Awards were held in Los Angeles last night, bringing out many of the same players, as well as some fresh faces, to the game.
Some old familiars, like The Daily Show and Mad Men, took center stage for their respective categories, but fledgling comedies Glee and Modern Family (with some help from George Clooney) got their share of the spotlight too.
In a surprising twist, Kyra Sedgwick won Beast Actress in a drama series for her role on The Closer. Sedgwick, an award show veteran, looked glamorous when she took the stage to accept her first-ever Emmy in a gown by Monique Lhullier, a designer that seems to be especially popular this summer.
Not so surprisingly, events unfolded quite well for Glee actress Jane Lynch, whose win for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy had been predicted since the nominees were announced. The win was the perfect end to the summer for Lynch, who exchanged wedding rings with her girlfriend Dr. Lara Embry this past May.
Other newlyweds that attended the event included movie start Emily Blunt and True Blood’s Anna Paquin, who is no stranger to accessorizing her engagement ring.
And you may not win a statue for it, but Modern Family’s Sophia Vergara has already been mentioned for the honor of last night’s best dressed, while Mad Men’s Christina Hendrickson, who is normally a red carpet VIP, fell flat.
But not everybody can be the best, and not everybody can be a winner, and sadly not everybody can have a little fun with George Clooney. So for those of us who can’t, I hope you enjoyed watching.
