Emmys Open Post: Hosted by Sofia Vergara and Idris Elba


The Emmys are tonight! I know, they snuck up on us this year. I realized all of a sudden yesterday, “Damn, the Emmys are 24 hours away.” It should be an exciting night, and in my opinion, it’s been a good year for television. Tomorrow, CB, Bedhead and I will have lots and lots of Emmy coverage, including winners and fashion and post-Emmy parties and who did what, etc. This is just the Open Post to discuss the red carpet and whatever else strikes your fancy.

Your Open Post hosts are two of the sexiest bitches scheduled to appear at this year’s ceremony: Sofia Vergara and Idris Elba. Sofia is nominated for Best Supporting Actress In a Comedy Series for Modern Family, and Idris is nominated for Best Actor in a Drama Series for the BBC America show, Luther, where he plays a detective. Idris was also nominated (and he’s already lost) for Outstanding Guest Star for his role in The Big C. These are photos of both Sofia and Idris at some of the pre-Emmy parties. You can review all of this year’s nominees here.

My proposed drinking game for the evening involves cutaways. Take a swig whenever there’s a cutaway to Dame Gwyneth‘s snot-face, or Kate Winslet’s cat-face, or to Lea Michele’s bitch-face. You should get good and hammered.

Come back tomorrow for all of our coverage!

    I like her, but her voice is annoying. There is nothing sexy behind it. I like her personalty and she is somewhat funny but as a host, a bad choice honestly.

  2. Rita says:

    I assume Idris is the black fellow. Like his tie.

    I’m wondering if an open post gets me out of mod-jail for the night or am I still queen of the “Mod Squad”. (wearing my grandmother’s 70’s bell-bottom jeans with paisley patches and flower power embroidery).

    @dave #1- You mean sort of Fran Dresser with a latin accent?

    @Katscorp- Hey gf I see I’m still in mod-jail and you slipped in just beneath me. I can smell doggy breath!!!

  3. KatScorp says:

    Maybe this was why my dog got me out of bed at 3am?

    Fingers crossed for Edie Falco.

    Got a knot in my stomach over the Big Bang Theory showdown. Oh dear! Parson’s has the best range on the show, but he won last year! I’d feel so bad for Galecki. But Parson’s deserves it more! Give ’em BOTH an Emmy!!!

  4. grabbyhands says:

    Idris Elba is simply delicious.

  5. betty says:

    Does cb have a live chat? Would be so interested in hearing this groups comments.

    Like Kelly Cuoco and her ridiculous nails.

  6. KatScorp says:

    @Rita: Wait till you smell his farts! Silent but deadly :O

    @Betty: Did you see Kaley’s hair? The photo I saw (purple dress) seemed an eye sore. But I like her anyway.

  7. betty says:

    @katscorp… like the show, like her, but she personal PR points are bonkers

  8. betty says:

    Following up on the K Cuoco… Jim Parsons is being tested by Ryan… Hair Jim Parsons. Fix it.

  9. betty says:

    The Ryan Seacrest/Julianna Hough matchup bugs. JH is super annoying! Now she is defending the Footloose remake. Blah.

  10. Naoufal says:

    @ Dave…Well said!she’s pretty and sexy but her voice and accent are annoying..and to honest i wouldn’t think of her as a smart intellectual women..

  11. Shelb says:

    Emmy voters are pathetic. The best shows don’t even get nominated, let alone win anything. No Emmy for Steve Carrell? Really, guys? Jane Lynch’s Ricky Gervais joke was so egotistical, it proved exactly why he makes fun of celebrities.

  12. Amanda G says:

    @Dave – I couldn’t agree more. When I first watched Modern Family I thought she was playing up her accent for the character, but no, she’s really that annoying!

    I also think I’m one of the few people who thinks she’s sort of a butterface… Slammin’ body though!

  13. Bad Fairy says:

    Christina Hendrecks dissed again. And I think I just misspelled her name. Insult to injury.

  14. Franny says:

    Did you see christina in glasses? So sexy!

  15. cecilia says:

    @Shelb – I’m not watching the Emmys (I came here in the dim hope to just look at pictures. I guess they’ll be coming later) so I have no idea what the joke was, but how likely is it that Jane Lynch wrote the joke? She’s basically just the mouthpiece for whatever the committee (or whoever) of writers came up with, no?

  16. kibbles says:

    I just saw a photo of Christina Hendricks at the Emmys. She really got it right after that purple disaster she wore last year. She looks fabulous.

    A few of my favorites also include Claire Danes, Christine Baranski (love her as an actress also), Sarah Hyland.

    My least favorites (many of the usual suspects): Kathy Griffin, Jayma Mays and most of the Glee cast, Amy Poehler, Kyle Richards, Phoebe Price, Paula Abdul, Lara Spencer, Adrianne Palicki, Steven Cojocaru

    Paz de la Huerta – compared to her usual horrible style and makeup she looked okay tonight.

    Looking forward to reading your take on the fashion hits and misses.

    Not many exciting gowns.
    Best moment was Kyle Chandler winning for FNL! So happy for him.
    Bummed that Steve Carell didn’t get it (I so don’t get the Big Bang Theory) and as much as I love Modern Family, I was hoping Parks & Rec would take it.

    Funniest moment – fast forward through the red carpet stuff, and seeing Lea Michele’s variety of ridiculous poses condensed into about 10 seconds.

  18. BIGT says:

    She’s very hott, mmm would wreck that am cool with the voice too.

  19. KatScorp says:

    Guy Pearce won an Emmy?! I didn’t even know Guy Pearce was nominated!! Atta boy Guy! 😀 Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Parsons won best comedy lead… and I so very much don’t want to see the cutaway of Galecki’s face. Parsons deserved it – I’ll shout that from the mountain tops, I swear – but Galecki gives off an ‘abandoned puppy’ vibe to me.

    @Betty: you were right about Parsons’ hair. Crikey.

  20. sauvage says:

    Maybe I’m wrong, but to me Idris looks like he smoked some weed just prior to the event. Those eyes…!

  21. Amanda says:

    The dress was “cute” and I loved the color, but I don’t like short dresses on the red carpet. The Emmys are more formal and I think it would have been a better look had the dress been long.

  22. I Run New York says:

    HE’S NOT ATTRACTIVE AT ALL TO ME. I don’t get what the big hoopla is over him.

  23. UKHels says:

    Idris is just the hottest oh yes

  24. Kim says:

    Love her personality and she is gorgeous! She could be a witch like alot of female celebs but she seems down to earth & able to laugh at herself.
