Accepting his Emmy on Sunday night, Alec Baldwin was no less amusing than he has been on "Saturday Night Live" skewering President Trump.
"At long last Mr. President, here is your Emmy,” he joked onstage. After remarking that he and his wife hadn't had a baby this year, he said of his "SNL" costume, "You put on that orange wig, it’s birth control."
But backstage after his win, Baldwin was far more subdued, even as he was applauded by the press as he took the stage.
For Laura Dern, the sixth time was the charm. Dern has been nominated for an Emmy five times previously; on Sunday, she finally won for her role as Renata Klein in “Big Little Lies,” HBO’s murder mystery and social satire set among the rich mamas of Monterey, Calif.
Taking the stage, Dern was all smiles. And all about female empowerment.
On Hollywood becoming more gender balanced, she said: “Thank God we’re seeing more and more women. When I started, even my makeup artist was a man. It’s changing dramatically.”
Last, but certainly not least, my LGBQTIA family. I see each and every one of you. The things that make us different, those are superpowers. Everyday when you walk out the door put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world. Because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if you weren’t in it.
While solid-color gowns in standard shades of black, red and metallics dominated the Emmy red carpet, "Big Little Lies" star Zoë Kravitz wore every color from sunrise to sunset.
Topped with a black bodice, her feathered Dior gown's full-length skirt blazed in a mélange that flowed from red, yellow and orange to daytime hues of yellow, green and blue. That's the Hollywood definition of day-to-night dressing.
Picture the single most out-of-sync anecdote a person could drop on the red carpet for television's biggest night. Got it?
You don't. What Shailene Woodley said was worse.
The nominee for supporting actress in a limited series stumbled into an epic faux pas when taking part of E's "Live From the Red Carpet," when she admitted she really doesn't have time to watch television.
All my friends watch TV. I just ask them when they have time to. When do people have time to? I’m a reader. So I always read a book instead of turning on my TV.
