Did you watch the Emmy Awards? I tried to, I wanted to, I couldn't stomach it. I have been a long time awards show fan, mostly because of the fashion, but also I enjoy seeing my favorites win awards for performances I really enjoyed.
However, last night was truly a disappointment. I watched for all of about 5 minutes before I had had enough. Get ready, I will be on my soapbox for a moment or two now.
Note to Hollywood...An awards show is neither the time nor the place to shove your political opinions down our throats just because you have the microphone for a few minutes. Of the five or six acceptance speeches I managed to suffer through only Don Rickles did not go down the political road. His speech was funny, charming and genuinely thankful. Hello everyone else, you should take a lesson. When you receive an award please accept it with grace and genuine gratitude, not with anger, pique, and an agenda. I stopped watching. Political speak and an acceptance speech simply go together like oil and water...they don't.
Now on to the most important issue of the evening. Best and worst dressed. There were many ladies who were elegant and lovely, but this year I am giving the award to Christina Applegate. She looked beautiful and fresh and I admire her strength and grace in dealing with her cancer.
Here is a link to see how beautiful she looked. (Trust me I just spent the better part of an hour trying to get a picture to post, but apparently even with my mad technology skillz it wasn't meant to be.)
***UPDATE*** Turns out it wasn't my mad skillz afterall...my computer was having an issue, so without further ado...Ms. Christina Applegate.
Worst dressed goes to none other Alyssa Milano. This look from hairdo to shoes is less than "Charming"! Really what could she have been thinking?
