Emmy Rossum in Monique Lhuillier at The Critics’ Choice TV Awards: lovely?

The 4th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards
I watch a lot of TV. So it was a treat for me to go through the photos of the Critics’ Choice TV Awards last night and to try and remember how I knew everyone. My job is a great excuse for that, but it’s not like I’m writing recaps on the regular. I just love television, particularly the excellent series to be found to cable television, like Emmy Rossum’s Shameless. The Shameless season finale aired in April, which too bad, but it’s coming back next year for a fifth season. (It probably won’t return until January, 2015.)

Emmy’s casual styling here seems to be a nod to her Shameless character, Fiona, who always looks like she just rolled out of bed. I love her slightly messy, wavy hair and her understated makeup. She sometimes looks too stiff on the red carpet, and this is a nice change for her. I especially like her fuchsia one-shoulder Monique Lhuillier crop top and skirt. She’s not showing too much skin and this looks both elegant and sleek. Emmy was nominated for best actress in a comedy series, which went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus. (Here’s a list of the nominees and winners)

Minnie Driver was in a strapless Lorena Sarbu gown featuring a gold and silver sequin bodice and a white chiffon skirt. The top looks a bit small for her and this seems too formal overall. Maybe this is just right for an awards ceremony, though. Minnie was nominated for best actress in a movie or miniseries, for her Lifetime movie Return To Zero. Jessica Lange won in that category for AHS: Coven.

Presenter Kat Graham of The Vampire Diaries had on a blue Escada pantsuit featuring abstract silver pieces sewn around the collar. This is funky and unique without being fug, and I like both the suit and her modern Emm Kuo clutch. My one complaint is that her pants need to be tailored, they look like they’re hanging on the floor.

Carrie Preston was nominated for best guest performer in a drama series, for her work in The Good Wife. That went to Allison Janney for Masters of Sex. Carrie is wearing a Black Halo dress that looks like a separate black top and floral skirt. I love her, but that gown looks very 90s and her styling is dragging her down here. I dislike the slicked back hair trend.

Here’s another pic of Emmy looking cute.

    Everybody looks nice, but they don’t look like they’re going to the same event. I like Emmy’s look the best.

    • Detritus says:

      It’s true, they don’t look like at from the same party. Emmi and Minnie maybe then the other two?

      Love Minnie’s dress, wish it fit better. Emmi looks cute and happy.

      • kri says:

        I love Minnie Driver-very talented person. And Graham is so gorgeous, I can’t take it!

  2. eliza says:

    Is there ever a month without an awards show?

    On a somewhat unrelated note, the NBC show, About a Boy, with Minnie Driver is the WORST. I actually loved the movie with Hugh Grant and had high hopes the tv show might be good. How wrong I was. I made it through 15min and was sorry for all involved. NBC sure has come up with some stinkers this year.

    • Celebitchy says:

      I tried to watch that show, I almost talked about it. I watched more than you did, it’s not god-awful but it’s not great or anything.

    • starrywonder says:

      Yeah I didn’t care for it either. What the heck happened to Minnie Driver? She was on the cusp of being the next big thing and seems to star in really crappy movies or t.v. shows.

  3. Word Girl says:

    Absolutely love shameless and Fiona, and Lip, and Viv, although Debs and Ian have gotten out of control. Love the dress on Emmy, it’s just that she never really seems to get the hair right. Kay Graham looks amazing. Can’t say I agree with the tayloring critique. I think a pant leg that hang over the shoe and slightly grazes the floor gives the leg a flattering elongated appearance.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      I love Shameless. Love it. I hope Noel Fisher gets some serious awards because he was amazing last season. A standout in an already amazing cast.
      Did they put Shameless under comedy series? What in the world?

      • Lollipop says:

        YES! Noel was amazing. And the portrayal of a homosexual relationship in an impoverished area was spot on, and so rare on television.
        Actually, a real portrayal of poverty is so rare on TV.

    Love Em
    Dont hate Kat’s pants…I like the millimeters from the floor danger

  5. Sabrina says:

    I love Emmy’s dress and think it’s great for the event.

  6. Maria says:

    Emmy looks good and I love the blue earrings with the pink dress ♡

  7. Original Tessa says:

    Emmy is my girl crush. She’s just so dang good on Shameless, and so incredibly natural and beautiful, in a seemingly healthy way, I would read a Goop if she was writing it. Love her.

  8. aligoat says:

    Shameless is a great, great show with wonderful acting from all of the cast.

  9. serena says:

    What?? Shameless won’t have a 6th season????

  10. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Emmy looks great, love the colour pop/clash with the earrings. Kat’s pants are fine, you can at least see her shoes, I hate when you see no shoes just a swathe of trouser dragging on the ground! Minnie’s dress is kinda ott for the occasion imo. Love Carrie but it’s not her best look.

    Hubby and I were just discussing if/how Fargo would get awards love – SO happy it won for best mini-series (though hope there will be more :-( ) , Billy Bob deserves all the awards and then some as does Martin Freeman, shame they had to be in same category. Super happy for Allison Tolman too, she is awesome, can only assume they put her in supporting category so she would have a shot at winning.

    How is Breaking Bad still winning awards? It feels like it’s been over a long time. Too bad Masters of Sex only got one award, it’s amazing. Allison Janney rules though I could not get through one episode of that sitcom she also won for. Also wish The Americans got more love.

  11. QQ says:

    In this batch everyone but the Carrie lady (who looks fresh out of an 80s prom!) look kinda great…even Minnie Drive who tends to look/pose Tight and strained a la Jessica Simpson

  12. lucy2 says:

    Emmy looks great, I love the dress. I never cared for her until I just recently watched Shameless, she’s great on that show.
    I HATE when bodices are too small/too low. Minnie’s is definitely not fitted well, but is an interesting dress.

  13. murphy says:

    Emmy’s lipstick is a NO NO

  14. Marlene says:

    I like Emmy and Kat Graham the best.

  15. shannon says:

    love Emmy’s hair here. I agree that she usually looks too “done” on the carpet but she looks really great here. My hair is about that length now and I would give anything to be able to make it look that good. Minnie Driver…she lost a ton of weight years ago and it does not suit her. If she would just put on about ten lbs, she would look less angular.

    • Renee says:

      I totally agree with you about Minnie’s weight and Emmy’s hair. I don’t know what it is but I feel like I want to shake some sense into MInnie whenever I see her. She usually doesn’t dress well for these things and I find it frustrating because she could look SO good…and what’s this covering up of her face freckles!?!? I thought that it was universally understood that freckles rock the party that rocks the party???!!!

      On another note, Katerina Graham is ridiculously beautiful. I also think that about half the time she goes a step too far with her outfits but this time I think that she looks stunning, even though I think the jewels on the top of her jacket are cray. And even though her make up is “dated”, holy 80s Batman!!!, I still love it and want to try a similar look. Love her brows!!

  16. ichsi says:

    Where has this Kat Graham person been all my life??!! Holy s**t she’s BEAUTIFUL!
    Emmy looks great too, perfect look for her and I’m so stealing the make-up!
