There were so many beautiful women at last night’s 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. ‘Mad Men’ and ‘American Horror Story’ led the race with 17 nominations each, but it was the casts of ‘Modern Family’, ‘Homeland’, and ‘Game Change’ that came away the big winners.
Here’s more on the awards ceremony from People:
Eric Stonestreet took home the first award of the night for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. In a repeat of last year’s early Emmys sweep for the series, Julie Bowen took home the best supporting actress award, marking her second consecutive win in the category, followed by the show’s co-creator Steve Levitan winning the Emmy for outstanding comedy direction. The cast closed out the evening the same way it began, with another win, this time for outstanding comedy series.
Newcomer Homeland had an incredible night following the show’s debut season. The Showtime series’ star Damian Lewis won the Emmy for the lead actor in a drama series – while his pregnant costar Claire Danes scooped up the best actress award. Homeland also took home the Emmys for outstanding writing and outstanding drama series.
After playing Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, Julianne Moore won her first Primetime Emmy for lead actress in a miniseries or movie. “I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down,” she said as she accepted her award. The political film – which won four awards total – also took home honors for outstanding writing, outstanding directing and outstanding miniseries or movie.Two and Half Men‘s Jon Cryer won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy. “Don’t panic people, something has clearly gone terribly wrong. I am stunned, I didn’t actually win this – this did not just happen!” Cryer said, addressing his fellow nominees Don Cheadle, Louis C.K., Jim Parsons, Larry David and Alec Baldwin. Meanwhile, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy.
Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul was stunned as he accepted his Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series. “I cannot believe I’m standing on this stage, let alone in this room,” he said. But before stepping down from the stage, the actor thanked his fiancée Lauren Parsekian. “You saved me,” he said.
Downton Abbey‘s Maggie Smith won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, beating out Archie Panjabi, Anna Gunn, Joanne Froggatt, Christina Hendricks and Christine Baranksi, but wasn’t present to accept.
While accepting the Emmy for outstanding variety series, Jon Stewart earned first-to-get-bleeped honors after winning his 10th consecutive Emmy for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.
And Jessica Lange stunned in red as she accepted the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie for her role as Constance Langdon in American Horror Story, while Kevin Costner took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in the same category for his role in Hatfields and McCoys.
I’ll be posting pictures from the red carpet, and here are the people I’ll be posting pictures of. Who was your best dressed from last night?
Pictured: Amanda Peet, Kelly Osbourne, Jenna Malone, Ginnifer Goodwin, Heidi Klum, Edie Falco, Hayden Panetierre, Elizabeth Moss, Leslie Mann, January Jones, Amy Poehler, Julianne Hough, Kristen Wiig, Kevin Costner, Sofia Vergara, Ashley Judd, Tina Fey, Jessica Lange, Juliana Margulies, Julianne Moore, Claire Danes, Ellen Degeneres, Portia de Rossi, Lucy Liu, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban and Christina Hendricks.
Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi haven’t changed their minds about starting a family!
DeGeneres is days away from the season 10 premiere of her eponymous talk show, and explained to Jay that while she has no issue with kids themselves, she doesn’t really want them for herself.
“I don’t want to have one. I don’t want to have six. I don’t want to have any,” the comedian said. “They’re precious to look at and I love them; we have nieces and I love them very much. [But I] don’t want ‘em.”
“People are constantly asking Portia and me if we are going to have children. We thought about it. We love to be around children after they’ve been fed and bathed. But we ultimately decided that we don’t want children of our own. There is far too much glass in our house.”
And you know what they say: those in glass houses…should…not…procreate? I don’t know- I was never any good at sayings and proverbs.
HarperCollins has announced that it will publish Cameron Diaz’s first novel, which will be about health, wellness and lifestyle. The untitled book is scheduled to be released in 2013.
A vice president for HC promises that Diaz will offer inspiration for young women by writing about her fitness, nutrition and well-being. Diaz, 40, is obviously doing something right, look at these pictures!
“Diaz aims to engage and empower women and girls by showing them that with the right knowledge about their bodies, they can live happier, healthier, stronger and better,” Rinaldi said.
Why do readers turn to celebs for advice? Well, look at them. Pippa Middleton’s Penguin book on party planning, due in October, is highly anticipated because she’s … well, Pippa Middleton, party girl, princess of the paparazzi and sister to a future queen.
Same goes for Diaz, star of such films as There’s Something About Mary and Charlie’s Angels, who could prove just as popular as actress Gwyneth Paltrow in the lifestyle advice-giving category.
Besides, Diaz has a couple of new films coming out soon, including Gambit, opposite Oscar winner Colin Firth, and Ridley Scott’s ensemble drama, The Counselor, due in 2013.
I never have, and probably never will, read a celebrity book. Nor will I buy a celebrity fragrance. I cannot lie, however, I have bought a pair of Jennifer Lopez’s jammies at Kohls. They are freaking SOFT!
Cameron looks amazing in these pics! I love her outfit! So sute and summery!

Portia de Rossi and her wife, Ellen Degeneres, were spotted yesterday going for a walk in West Hollywood. The actress showed off a new much-shorter hair cut! What do you think?
Portia married Ellen, 54, in 2008.
The couple recently purchased a home together in Beverly Hills after Ellen offloaded one of the most expensive properties – a 2.87 acre estate in the posh neighbourhood – for an astounding $49million.
Their new 8,500-square-foot mansion is not far away, located in the exclusive Trousdale Estates. It was purchased for a more modest $18million, according to reports.
