Although nominated for sixteen Emmy awards, Mad Men walked away empty handed last night. The show had previously won four straight wins for best drama series and was shooting for an all-time best five in a row. Despite nominations for Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss and Jared Harris, no actor has ever won for a performance on Mad Men. Hamm has lost to Bryan Cranston three times, Kyle Chandler and now Damian Lewis.
In all, Mad Men went 0-for-16, an all-time record.
The 2012 Emmy Awards red carpet was a flurry of sizzling designer gowns, towering stilettos and glittering gems. The fashions were extremely varied in terms of style, color and designer. Featuring the works of many lesser known designers, the gowns were more out of the box than seen in previous years.
My top eight red carpet best dressed are:
- Amy Poehler – Stella McCartney
- Christina Hendricks – Christian Siriano
- Jessica Lange – J Mendel
- Lucy Liu – Versace
- Kat Dennings – J Mendel
- Sofia Vergara – Zuhair Murad
- Tina Fey – Vivienne Westwood
- Julianne Moore – Dior
