emmy awards ’06 – live blogging!


hey hey! oh my word – the red carpet arrivals are starting on both E! with ryan seacrest & TV guide channel with joan & melissa rivers…i’m gonna flip back & forth a bit! thanks to gossip rocks for the pictures…

i’ve been so nervous to do this – i’ve been crazy busy trying to do a bit of cleaning – getting rid of a whole bunch of crap that’s been accumulated in the past few years – don’t forget next weekend is the LA blogger garage sale!

anyways i will try to provide some wit & commentary over the next few hours – so make sure to keep checking in – it is a total bummer that the show is on west coast delay but what can i do? and if anyone else out there has something to say – email me or post a comment on this post and we can work it in here! i’ll be back in a minute – time to pour myself a glass of wine…


looks like tonight will mark ms. joan rivers 1000th interview on the red carpet – who will it be?!? gosh she is always out of control – the awards are over at the shrine auditorium…gosh she has been going on for like 10 minutes – let’s get to the celebs joan – i’m gonna switch over to E!…


my goodness – did you all get a look at morgan fairchild‘s boobs? damn they’re outta control! and sandra oh has way too much jewelry on – i love her but she’s a bit wacky…


jessica walter is amazing! gosh i do miss that arrested development – joan just interviewed her – she is #983 – only a few more to 1000…enough with the mel gibson jokes – it’s so tired


ryan is with joel mchale from comedy central’s ‘daily soup’ – which is a great show – i always forget it’s on – so i need to get more on top of that…it’s a bit confusing to switch back & forth – both channels seems to be doing commercials at the same time!


i love chandra wilson from my dear grey’s anatomy which i have been a huge fan of since it premiered – i’m a little concerned about it moving to thursdays this fall – it is a great show and i hope it picks up some awards tonight!


amy poehler and husband will arnett were just with ryan – what a funny couple those two are – i bet they are blast to hang out with – i hope will nabs the award for his amazing work on arrested development – i have a feeling though that jeremy piven will win – and i’m ok with that – i do adore my ‘ari gold’ as well!


joan was just with the lovely cheryl hines all dressed in purple – that’s another fave show of mine that took me a little time to get into but once i did…now i can’t miss curb your enthusiasmlarry david is amazing!


quick picture update – i’m trying to keep up!


joan is with howie mandel – oh that ‘deal or no deal’ – oh look it’s kathy griffin who looks great! fingers crossed for her to win as well…sandra oh is discussing her jewelry over on E! – way too much! portia dirossi is running down the carpet – i don’t see her girlfriend ellen degeneres anywhere?


oh it’s leah remini with ryan! he needs to hit her up for more info on suri cruise! and yes scientologists wear versace too! oh my word he IS asking her about suri – oh this is a bit uncomfortable…i loved the whole did you see it? and she is all i like to call ‘it’ a her…i doubt these two are going to be hanging out anytime soon…


picture update! morgan’s boobs are crazy!


maybe seal can get back to making music if he stops making babies with heidi klum for a bit – i love them both and seal does have an amazing voice – and he is due for a kick-ass comeback album – and as for ms. klum…project runway is quickly becoming my favorite reality show – i love jeffrey and i’m glad he was mean to angela’s mother – i would have been too! ugh i can’t stand angela OR her mother! oh my daddy patrick dempsey is in the house – gosh he is a delicously sexy guy! grrrr!


more pics!


lisa kudrow is with ryan! she has had seven previous emmy nominations! oh i love hearing her talk about ‘the comeback’ – she looks great! oh i hope it’s her night! even if she doesn’t win – she was still nominated and maybe someday we will see that valerie cherish character again! i seem to be stuck on E! i’m gonna flip to joan…


although i prefer the banter of the rivers – it seems E! has better coverage as far as getting the people i want to see (along with everyone else) i think this will be easier to keep track of once the show starts – this channel switching is driving me a bit loopy!


katherine heigl vs tyra banks (best & worst)


megan mullally is great – she looks hot and she is very talented – it’s crazy so many of the shows nominated are not even on the air anymore! i’ll be back in a few – i gotta walk the dogs for a few minutes!


i’m back! i made the dogs do their business quickly daddy has to blog the emmys – hurry up! anyways ellen pompeo wins for worst hair – it’s not flattering how it is all pulled back – i no likey! gosh i love kathy griffin – so funny they made references to her no longer being on E! – speaking of no longer being on E! – where is that star jones? maybe eating bon-bons somewhere far far away…


the show starts in a second – here is the last round of red carpet pics – and now i see paula abdul – she so ties with tyra banks for worst dressed! i’m switching over to NBC now…


here we go with the show – conan o’brien is hosting – i do try and catch his late night show – he should keep things lively – i love these opening bit type things – with him on ‘lost’ and now ‘the office’…


i loved his joke about ellen burstyn being nominated for her 14-second appearance in ‘mrs. harris’ – i love ms. burstyn (you gotta see ‘requiem for a dream’ if you haven’t) but it’s pretty ludicrous that she was nominated – 14 seconds??? come on – that is such a fucking joke!


let me repeat myself – i love patrick dempsey – ok first award of the evening is up at bat…gosh ellen pompeo‘s hair is terrible!
