Tonight! The Emmys! Have I shared my love for awards shows with you all? I love them. I do. I always have. When I was a kid, my little sister and I used to pile into bed with my mom and watch the entire thing – from the first look on the red carpet to the very final award. The only thing that’s changed is that I now watch them from the office. I’m lucky because watching the red carpet is actually part of my job. I’m responsible for reporting the red carpet for the Dallas Morning News. Tomorrow morning, if you pick up a paper, you’ll be able to see all of my best- and worst-dressed picks from the show. I’m really excited to see what the stars bring to the red carpet tonight. I have high hopes for Robyn Wright. I’m obsessed with the her character’s wardrobe on House of Cards, and I’m really hoping she’ll play into that chic-and-sleek look. I’m also really looking forward to seeing Claire Danes. (Side note: what’s the status of Homeland?) She’s been a best-dressed on the Emmys red carpet for the past few years and I’ve got no doubt that she’ll rise to the occasion once again. A few other leading ladies I’m looking forward to seeing: Kerry Washington, Julianna Margulies, Christina Hendricks, and, of course, all the ladies from Downton Abbey. Who are you looking forward to seeing?
(Side note: I’m really, really crossing my fingers that Breaking Bad takes home its share of awards. Any TV shows you’re hoping to see take some golden statues?)
In anticipation of the the big night, I’ve put together ten of my favorite red carpet looks from Emmys past. Did I miss someone? Tell me your favorites!
