Sofia Vergara WTF?!? How the hell does one woman look so darn hot?!

This Sofia Vergara? Meh.

I learned more Spanish watching her on "Fuera de Serie" a decade ago than I did in 4 years of high school

Memorable? Like the time when an award show gives an award -- to another award show?

Soul-destroying boredom -- that's what I remember.

Christina Hendricks's tits are called "moments" now? Duly noted.
 
2010-08-30 12:06:28 PM  
No pics of Amy Pohler's awesome rack?

/Leaving a bit disappointed.

The Emmy's were on last night?

Best moment - when Christina Hendricks' dress couldn't take the stress anymore and just burst open and there they were - pale, round, and magnificent.

And then she walked toward me, said, "hey, big boy" and turned into a parakeet.

Actually, that might have happened after I dozed off during the show...

"...And that's where I fit. Between those huge sweating tits that hung enormous, the way you'd think of God's as big."

Are the Emmys always at this time of year? Seems quite strange. I'd have watched if I'd known they were on.
 
2010-08-30 12:12:49 PM  
Anything with Fallon is a giant fail. It may have been the Second Coming and he would find a way to ruin it.
 
2010-08-30 12:12:55 PM  
What's this about Amy Poehler's rack? Pics?
 
2010-08-30 12:12:55 PM  
And the Emmy for being alive and insanely hot goes to Christina Hendricks!

Temptation: Anything with Fallon is a giant fail. It may have been the Second Coming and he would find a way to ruin it.

It's a shame, too because he seems genuinely nice.

The only way I would watch the Emmys (or the Oscars, for that matter) is if they would post what the highlights would be in advance.

Got to hold a real Emmy (and an Oscar)a few months ago.

When the recipients comment about how surprisingly heavy the statues are, believe me, they are surprisingly heavy.

Adventure Time didn't win Animated Program Less Than One Hour?
Not interested.

4. Ricky Gervais, you liven up any party. Lamenting the lack of alcohol at the show, he noted with his trademark impeccable-to-the-point-of-painful comic timing, "Russell Crowe -- he would not be seen dead here ... Mel Gibson? Come on." As the crowd shivered uncomfortably, he continued, "I'm not going to have a go at him. He's been through a lot ... Not as much as the Jews." And with that, a team of waiters appeared to provide bottles of beer to the crowd. "Those are on me," he declared, "'The Office' is in syndication."

And then, like a little gift from heaven itself, it turned out one of the nominees in the category Gervais was presenting was Olympic opening ceremonies director Bucky Gunts. "I hope it's Bucky Gunts," he tittered naughtily before opening the envelope, "because I didn't know you could say that on television. And let's face it, we're all Bucky Gunts here." The winner? Bucky Gunts. Dreams do come true, America!


Bucky Gunts, tee hee.

What kind of beer was it?

I'm above watching awards shows, reading online articles about them, or discussion threads about online articles about them. I can't even be bothered to post an opinion.

Wait...uh...

I'm happy for you subby, and I'mma let you finish. But last years Emmys were the best ever.
 
2010-08-30 12:24:48 PM  
what about when Jimmy Fallon was singing songs dressed up as other musicians? That was funny, right guys? Hello? Anyone?

An astounding vision of juggery, to be sure. I would definitely hit it.

But at the risk of invoking Studman69, she's quite the butterface.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: not enough pictures of hot women.

Why does every woman have to do that exact same ridiculous pose with their arm backwards and hand on their hips? Do they know how un-creative it makes them look?

I don't watch TV. Anyway, the radiohair_ is getting a bit thin on top as we approach our golden years. I work with a guy my age who has a full head of hair, which he lost to chemo a few years ago. Som of biatch, it grew back thicker than before. It was originally straight and grew back straight, sort of a Dennis Cole look - to evoke a bygone TV star and former spouse of TV actress Jacklyn Smith.

Gervais's Mel Gibson line "He's been through a lot ... Not as much as the Jews" stole the entire night. I was watching the show alone and I still laughed out-loud for about half a minute.

I don't care what anybody else says -- I love the two big Hollywood award shows every year (Emmys and Oscars). They're the only two award shows that I watch, but I look forward to them every year. I'm especially glad that Mad Men continues to win big -- may that show never die.

Huh...well I'll be damned. I had no idea Christina Hendricks even had a face!

The fact that Breaking Bad did not take every award in every category makes this award show a farce.
 
2010-08-30 12:32:01 PM  
Award shows are just as bad as Gray's Anatomy and House Hunters/Property Virgins/Et al.

I didn't even watch the recap. Not even for the hot chicks.
 
2010-08-30 12:32:07 PM  
There was a pre-season game on. Priorities man, priorities...
 
2010-08-30 12:32:41 PM  
Then you can all go and not watch watch Jersey Shore.
 
2010-08-30 12:32:54 PM  
Anyone have a link to a clip of the opening number? I hear it killed, but I tuned in about 15 minutes late.

Is it just me, or did Jimmy Fallon trying to look like Bruce Springsteen end up looking like Jon Gosselin?

stiletto_the_wise: The Stealth Hippopotamus: not enough pictures of hot women.

Why does every woman have to do that exact same ridiculous pose with their arm backwards and hand on their hips? Do they know how un-creative it makes them look?



It's so they look slimmer in photos. Advisors train them to pose that way. Here's the list:

* Take a deep breath and exhale to appear relaxed.
* Head up as if someone is pulling the crown of your head to the sky.
* Chin ever so slightly up and forward to alleviate a double chin- not too much or you'll get a nostril shot.
* Smile from your lower mouth only- eyes won't squint and wrinkles won't appear.
* Know the best side of your face and position it to the camera.
* Shoulders back.
* Inside shoulder angled away from the camera-this sets the ¾ frame for the rest of you to appear slimmer.
* Inside arm on upper hip to create shape and have your waist appear smaller.
* Outside arm, straight and slightly away from your body to avoid ruining the line of your outfit and have your upper body appear leaner.
* Hand in a semi-open pretty shape with fingers slightly apart.
* Tummy tight.
* Hips forward and continue to be on a ¾ angle way from the camera to look slimmer.
* Outside leg crossed over to the inside with foot pointed inward to create an elongated and slim leg. You are not putting any weight on this foot so leg muscles look lean.
* Inside leg is your support. Once it is placed on your mark, everything will fall in place from there.

You gave enough of a fark to post in this thread.

bump: There was a pre-season game something other than the Emmy awards show on. Priorities man, priorities...

FTFM.

I had not idea they happened until I read this headline.

The open was pretty awesome (and I don't even watch Glee):
