Julia Garner won her first Emmy in a purple Cong Tri cutout gown

Julia Garner is 25, which is surprising to me as I usually think she’s around 20 since she’s so good at playing teenagers. She won her first Emmy last night, for Supporting Actress in a Drama for Ozark. I don’t watch that show but my friend does and he says she’s amazing in it and that this Emmy is well deserved. I know her from Dirty John and The Americans, she’s a scene stealer. Her speech was adorable, she said the Emmy looked like it was chocolate and she wanted to share it with everyone. She was in purple Cong Tri, in a chiffon gown that had a cutout on one side and a long sleeve on the other. I thought it looked great on screen.


Julia’s costar Jason Bateman also won last night.


Alex Borstein also rocked purple, she was in a retro look gown and she also won an Emmy! Her speech last night was one of the most moving. She said her grandmother refused to stay in line when she was about to be executed during the Holocaust and that’s why Alex is here now. I just listened to that again and am crying now. I never thought about it like that, but the choices of so many women added up to us being here today. Step out of line ladies.



Tony Shalhoub also won for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!


Aunjanue Ellis was nominated for Lead Actress for When They See Us. She was also in purple, in a voluminous v-neck gown with a purple, red and black watercolor print. I think I would like this better without the ruffled and gathered shoulders.

    Not her tv dad. TV crime boss?

  2. Coji says:

    FYI, Bateman doesn’t play her dad.

  3. Jess says:

    Alex’s speech was incredible. And I love all the purple.

  4. Josephine says:

    I like all of these purple dresses but especially Julia’s. I thought we were done with the sheer skirts but this one works in my opinion. I like the high neck and the purple highlights her flawless skin (ah, youth).

    And I agree that Aunjanue ‘s dress would look better without the ruffles but she’s still wearing the heck out of it.

  5. Lucy says:

    I was sad about the GoT ladies not winning anything but yay for Julia!! She was fantastic in Grandma, with Lily Tomlin.

  6. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    I am in love with Julia’s dress! This works on her but I’d look like a squat eggplant in it.

  7. Esmom says:

    I’ve only made it through a couple episodes of Ozark but I remember how great Garner was in The Americans. I almost didn’t recognize her with such sleek hair. Her look is perfection. I love chiffon when it’s deployed so well.

    I’m not really loving the other two dresses, they don’t do the ladies justice, imo.

    ; I don’t watch much TV and virtually no films, so don’t know a lot of these celebrities, but enjoy reading about them here. So…

    Is that the Tony Shalhoub who once had a detective series? Monk, maybe? He looks great.
    I love Alex Borstein’s gown, mostly because it’s old-time classy and not shimmery, sparkly, cut-out, see-through…

    The fabric of Aunjanue Ellis’ dress is like the silk my friend hand paints. She frames and sells the beautiful panels. A few years ago, for my birthday, ago she made me a similar one to this dress fabric (a bit paler) to hang above my bed. The frills are way too much on the frock.
    Is purple is back, then?

    Just love the “AB” on Alex’ dress!

    Good for Julia. The only thing I ever saw her in was Grandma and she held her own with Lily Tomlin and Marcia Gay Harden. She has talent and hopefully a long and successful career ahead.

    • Bella Bella says:

      Julia was awesome as Kimmie in The Americans. I look forward to watching her incredible career unfold.

  11. Other Renee says:

    Alex Borstein’s Susie Meyerson may be my favorite tv character of all time. I’m so glad she won again. And she looks amazing here.

    • Granger says:

      I totally agree! Susie is amazing, and Alex is an incredible comedian/actress/entertainer.

      Her speech was simply beautiful.

  12. Nicegirl says:

    She’s fantastic in Ozark. My favorite part of the entire show.

  13. DiegoInSF says:

    She’s fantastic in Ozark. After I saw her in Dirty John playing such a different character from a privileged background, I realized her range. She was great in Grandma too! Ozark is so so so good!

  14. Jessie says:

    That makeup though! She should fire her makeup artist because everything else looks great!

    • tealily says:

      Yes! The foundation is too light and looks like it’s about to slide off her face. And that lipstick! Yikes.

  15. Jensies says:

    I love the color of Julia’s dress. I wish she had made different makeup choices. That hard metallic looks 80s and just harsh.

  16. Jessica says:

    Julia is such a good actress! She’s the only reason ozark is watchable.

  17. Mee says:

    Ozark is NOT watchable. Man did I try.

  18. Eenie Googles says:

    This is a great dress but REALLY not her colour.
    Better on someone else I think.

  19. Minxx says:

    Julia is fantastic in Ozark… can’t wait for the next season! If you missed it, I highly recommend it.

  20. zee says:

    In hindsight we always praise the women of the past for stepping out of line but whenever a present day woman dares to speak her mind she is told to stay in her lane – mostly by other women!

  21. s says:

    The superior Garner in Hollywood!

  22. amilou says:

    I love Ozark, and she is fan-freaking-tastic in it.
