I'm just in a tizzy, as you can tell by the subject of this post. Why am I so tizzied? Because I'm happy about the Emmys. Not the winners...heck, I don't watch enough TV to know who half those people were. But I'm happy about they way everyone looked.

OK, not everyone. But most everyone.

I mean, I could make some remark about Sandra Oh getting so engrossed with playing in her grandmother's costume jewelry drawer that she totally forgot about the Emmys, causing her to run out the door without remembering to put back the 87 necklaces she found, but the dress was so lovely I can forgive the bling. And if I weren't in such the aforementioned tizzy, I might even snark a bit about Virginia Madsen wearing her dress backwards, al la Felicity Huffman, but I'm going to let it slide. More than it already has, I mean.

And I could say something about Portia de Rossi's lipstick, but heck, I'm just so grateful that the Fleshtone Lip Plague seems to be ending that I'll overlook it...and give her props for apparently eating a cookie or two. And speaking of cookies,  a shoutout to Ellen Pompeo and Tracey Gold for putting a little flesh on their bones. Ugly dresses, but still...at least they fill them out. Likewise, props to Mariska Hargitay for making the most of post-baby curves without feeling the need to disguise her hips and/or expose her cleavage.

While we're on the subject of babies, blessings bestowed on Heidi Klum and Christa Miller for not encasing their babes-to-be in spandex.

Katherine Heigl gets a "Get Out of Fleshtone Lipstick Hell Free" card for being jaw-droppingly, heart-stoppingly, eye-poppingly gorgeous. But Melanie Lynskey one-ups her with the creamiest skin this side of...well...creamy skin land...and perfect perfect red lipstick. This is what Snow White would have looked like if she hadn't been spending her days playing dorm mother to a drove of dwarves.

However, top honors for the night go to the Of a Certain Age crowd: Alfre Woodard, Stockard Channing, Blythe Danner,  and the almost-too-perfect-to-be-human Helen Mirren, for proving that age and beauty are not mutually exclusive. It doesn't get much better than this, folks.

This was infinitely better than the LA Times Roundup! Ellen Pompeo's hair was wicked ugly, on par with her dress. Katherine Heigl was a *total* babe.

I didn't see the show but I did read the paper and google the fashions and yours was by far the best reporting I've read. No contest. And I appreciated the links to pic, too!

Katherine Heigl was absolutely gorgeous! LOVED her dress. Mariska Hartigay made me remember that women can look stunning and sexy with real woman bodies. Afre Woodward is one of my MOST favorite actresses; she looked fabulous!

Can I count on you reporting the Oscar fashions next year?

Of course I will report on Oscar next year! You think I'd miss a chance to snark? In the meantime, you can check out my 2006 review.

I didn't see them....

but frankly, if a baby isn't encased in spandex, I'll take it! I'm all for the middle of the road between a mu-mu and hanging out pregnancy look.

Now about Mariska Hargitay that woman could wear a potato sack and pull it off. Beautiful, I must find a pic. She was even gorgeous as a tough-ass chick on SVU.

And I probably should be concerned with who won what, but you and I both know it would be a cover up. I only care what people were wearing.

Since you were so kind

I'll pass along the secret. But don't blame me if you become obsessed and begin LOOKING for things to clean. http://www.amazon.com/Dawn-Direct-Foam/dp/B000BYSH8W/sr=1-5/qid=1156945133/ref=sr_1_5/002-4019923-4898449?ie=UTF8&s=hpc

didn't even watch it as I knew your review would be waiting for me when I finally had a chance to mosey through. Amazing as always, although I do think you have it wrong about JLH..I think she looked fabulous (dah ling!) Stockard Channing, always beautiful and thank the stars for the new expectant mother fashion trend that hopefully makes baby bubble spandex obsolete!

You know I love you, but you're dead wrong about JLH. She looked matronly, which ought to be a crime for anyone as young and pretty and disgustingly shapely as she is. Remember - you're never too young for a little support here and there!

She could have used a bit of breast support, but otherwise, I still think she looked awsome. And I loved her dress. Misty
