2015 Emmys Open Post: Hosted by Christina Hendricks’ Emmys losing streak


Here is our 2015 Open Post for the Emmys this year, hosted by Christina Hendricks. She was out and about on Friday at the Variety & Women In Film pre-Emmy party, and she wore the same dress for the TV Guide party as well. I think she’s such a pretty, striking woman but God help us, it’s like the Mad Men stylists are the only people who really know what to do with her.

I do love some Christina Hendricks, and she’s enjoying her sixth Emmy nomination in a row for playing Joan Holloway/Harris in Mad Men. Many people hope that considering 2015 was Mad Men’s final year on air, that the actors will finally sweep the awards. Mad Men itself has won Best Drama several times, but the actors never win. If any of the actors are going to win this year, it’s probably Jon Hamm, but I can hope against hope that Christina or Elisabeth Moss (also enjoying her sixth nomination just for Mad Men) will win as well. Both actresses did some of the best work of their careers on that show. Still, I kind of think that Game of Thrones will probably win Best Drama, don’t you?

The E! Emmys red carpet show starts at 6 pm EST and the Emmys begin at 8 pm on Fox. The host this year is Andy Samberg and I would imagine that he’ll have some fun and do some hipster humor, but I’m not expecting big song & dance numbers, like if Neil Patrick Harris was hosting again. We’ll be commenting on this Open Post, plus live-tweeting the red carpet & Emmy telecast. My Twitter is here. Celebitchy’s Twitter is here. And Bedhead’s Twitter is here. We’ll have full awards & fashion coverage tomorrow, starting bright and early!

    I intensely do not like the slicked back hair look. Looks like Jaime Alexander needs a shower.

    • vavavoom says:

      Or just got out of it! She really does have to be the most strikingly gorgeous woman I’ve ever seen though. Wow.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Her gown is gorgeous, and she looks AMAZING (but she must be roasting alive under all those sequins! It’s 95* here in LA right now!)

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      Christina Hendricks, (Joan) looks a hot mess in photo above, terrible, with that messy hair. Don’t like it.

      Loved January Jones at the Emmy Awards. Loved it.

      Didn’t like Elizabeth Moss hot pink dress, Too Prom teen queen.
      Peggy, Elizabeth Moss is / was blonde before Mad Men role, she said they made her change her hair to mousy brownish, red hints for the role of Peggy.

      Happy, Jon Hamm finally Won! He looked so elegant. Very Handsome.

    I love Christina as Joan but I really think Lena Headey deserves to win the Emmy. Cersei Lannister is such an amazing and complex character and Lena plays her to perfection.

  3. Miss M says:

    Go, Tatiana Maslany!!!!

    • LaMontagne says:

      This. So much this. I’m not getting my hopes up, but Tatiana Maslany totally deserves the Emmy for Best Actress.

    • Katydid20 says:

      I hope so too! That’s going to be a tough category though, there’s a bunch of different directions it can go with most all being deserving…..

  4. Gemma13 says:

    Sarah looks great in Zac Posen. That color is so pretty. I’m really liking his stuff right now.

  5. tracking says:

    Heidi Klum’s canary-yellow dress gives new meaning to “hot mess.”

  6. imqrious2 says:

    I have to say, almost an hour and a half into the Red Carpet on E!, I am completely underwhelmed by most of what is passing as “fashion” on the actresses. It seems as most of the strapless bodices just aren’t fitted well (to not stand away from the body), or they’re just too small for the wearer, the colors are just so drab (I’m not talking about the basic black, but the grayed teal color on Amy Schumer’s dress just felt so sad compared to January Jones’ teal dress!)… And Christina Hendricks… !! She really needs to keep the stylists from Mad Men on speed dial; they seem to be the only ones who know how to dress her.

    BTW… does anyone know if Elizabeth Moss’ blonde hair is for a role? IMO, it just doesn’t suit her skin tone.

    I do feel badly for the women though; it’s 95* here in LA today, and their makeup is just melting out there in the sun!

    • parissucksliterally says:

      I agree, that Mad Men era fashions work best on Christina…..
      I also felt bad about the people melting in the heat, then I remembered the nominees getting tens of thousands of dollars worth of gift bags the other day. So now I feel bad for everyone but the nominees. Hahaha

      • imqrious2 says:

        You’re right! I forgot about the “compensation” bags worth tens of thousands of dollars! FRY YOU @#%$&*! FRY! lolol

    • Lilacflowers says:

      I watched with my 86 year old great-aunt who wanted to know if most of the actresses got their dresses out of a thrift shop. The fashion really was not there tonight.

  7. minx says:

    I love Christina Hendricks, but this is far from her best look.

    • vavavoom says:

      I actually love it. But don’t like her hair.. I think if it was up, it would have lightened up the dress as well. She is so lovely.

  8. Courtney says:

    Not sure if it’s because I am excited for Star Wars but I’m weirdly attracted to Adam Driver now?

  9. RedWeatherTiger says:

    I want Mayim Bialik to win BSA for comedy! Her dress was terribly blah, but I know she dresses for modesty and doesn’t kick it with any flash AT ALL, so it’s fine. I just think she is great on BBT. This is her 4th year nominated, too.

    Poor Christina. That is one tragic look.

    Jane Krakowski (spelling?) looks phenomenal. I’d steal that dress right off her back.

  10. Veronica says:

    I liked Henderick’s dress well enough – I credit her that she’s trying a different cut for her hourglass shape – but I think a cooler red would suit her hair better. And it looks a tad messy, yeah? Maybe it was the heat. Mine can get pretty frizzy in the summer.

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      She somehow always manages to look a hot mess on red carpets. She needs to call Mad men stylists and get help for Award show dressing.

  11. tifzlan says:

    I am still upset about Jane the Virgin being overlooked at the Emmys this year. Gina Rodriguez should have at least been recognized. She is phenomenal in her role. At least Latin Lover Narrator is nominated, i guess.

    • imqrious2 says:

      I LOVE that show! And you’re right, she’s superb in her show, and she looks gorgeous tonight.

    • vavavoom says:

      Me too! She is phenomenal in that show. I think Jaime Camil, who plays her father, should have been nominated, and I can’t believe he isn’t getting more attention!! He’s so hilarious, and also beautiful. :)

    • Elisa the I. says:

      I find Gina Rodriguez quite OTT. I can see that she’s acting, if you know what I mean. I tried to watch the show but after a minutes her acting gets grinding.

  12. bettyrose says:

    Kiernan Shipka must have been miserable wearing those leggings in this heat but bless her for always being so adorably youthful on the red carpet.

  13. Tiffany says:

    Jane Anderson was so adorable.

  14. Nev says:

    Regina King won yayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. imqrious2 says:

    I have to say, I really thought Andy Samberg would be *totally* lame as host, and while I didn’t like his opening monologue, I did like the opening skit and the spoof of Mad Men’s ending (“I’d like to give the world an Emmy”). I actually laughed out loud during both… who’dathunkit? :-)

    On the other hand… while I love Frances McDormand; I think she is an amazing actress, and I know she’s not into hair and makeup, but couldn’t be bothered to at least run a comb through her hair?? That scraped back, one inch pony tail was what I’d do when I’m home sick with the flu.

    • minx says:

      I thought the same.
      She obviously not going to get plastic surgery, or even color her hair, but she looked so drab and sloppy. I’m five years older than her and I thought she looked like she’s just given up.

    • Jayna says:

      Maybe it was less frizzy when she was out on the red carpet. It was supposed to be terribly hot and humid. And I think she’s in the midst of menopause. Although, I agree, She looked like she put no effort into anything, makeup, hair, etc.

      She was so so brilliant in Olive Kitteridge, though, as was the man who played her husband.

  16. AlmondJoy says:

    Viola Davis had me in tears 😢

  17. Nev says:

    Yayyyyy Viola!!!!!!

  18. Lilacflowers says:

    Best Drama Series: Game of Thrones

    HODOR! Wun-Wun! Drogon!

  19. Josefa says:

    I love Uzo Aduba and Crazy Eyes is everything but Lena’s performance on the GoT finale was some of the finest acting I’ve ever seen on TV.

  20. Elizabeth says:

    Glad Jon Hamm finally won. Didn’t care for him rolling up on the stage instead of taking the stairs, though.

  21. lila fowler says:

    I enjoyed almost all of the wins except for Peter Dinklage (WUT?!) and Jon Hamm. First of all PD is way overrated and his accent on the show is terrible. I would love to know which episode he submitted so I can re-watch and try to figure out what they saw. As for Jon Hamm, I detest pity awards. I noticed they didn’t give one to Amy Poehler (I don’t even like P&R) but they gave them in droves to Jon Stewart and then there was Jon Hamm rolling up the stage as well. I guess you have to be a man. I would have preferred Kevin Spacey or Bob Odenkirk to win.

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      YAY! Jon Hamm, well deserved, excellent work on Mad Men, well deserved.
      He looked so elegant in his Tux too.

      Jon Hamm Congratulations!

  22. LAK says:

    I like this dress on her. It’s not fighting her shape and proportions.

  23. Jayna says:

    Pretty dress.

  24. Jayna says:

    Did Jon Hamm thank Jennifer Westfeldt in his speech when he was thanking his family and people that had been there for him his whole life? She was a huge part of that time, but I couldn’t tell if he mentioned her or not. It didn’t sound like it.

  25. laura in LA says:

    Normally, I don’t care much for the red carpet, but I have to say most looks were severely unflattering…

    Too-stiff or messy undone hair, caked-on matte makeup that makes even the younger women look much older, severe dresses that appear ill-fitting or garish and overwhelming (and in yesterday’s LA heat!), then painful-looking pointed heels.

    What happened to classic, sleek or softer but still glamourous looks? If this is the current fashion, I don’t get it.

  26. Tara says:

    I have nothing of value to contribute to this post but have to pose this chicken v. egg question: which came first: the bad hair or the Emmy losing streak?
