Emmy Red Carpet

This year's Emmy red carpet was pretty impressive.  In the 6 years I have been posting red carpet re-caps I think this was my favorite at the Emmys.  It was quite difficult to narrow down to a top ten.  It really was a star studded event this year, and almost every one turned up in show stopping looks.  I didn't see many dresses that I didn't like.  I also loved that some of casts or onscreen partnerships walked the carpet together, including my personal favorite, Claire Foy and Matt Smith from the Crown (already counting down to season 2)!  I didn't notice any obvious trends, it seemed the gowns that went down the carpet were quite the eclectic mix of colors, styles, and designers.  Maybe that is why it felt like a tough task this year, having to pick favorites from a sea of standouts.

During the awards it was mentioned multiple times that we are in the golden age of television.  As I watched critically acclaimed star after star march down the red carpet, I realized, yes maybe we are.  Then as I watched the actual show, it was made even more clear that there is some really incredible programming on television right now.  It was inspiring to see shows lead by strong female casts rise to the top and take home many of the awards like Big Little Lies and Handmaid's Tale.  Although I was personally rooting for Milo Ventimiglia in the best actor category, I was so glad that if someone snagged the award from him, it was his This Is Us castmate Sterling K Brown.  Another highlight was Melissa McCarthy's reaction when the actual Sean Spicer came out onto the stage...priceless.  I don't usually like to pick a single best dressed from the red carpet, but I have to say Gina Rodriguez looked stunning.  Her dress felt like a departure from what she usually wears, and I loved it.  I also can't wait for Jane the Virgin to return in a few weeks!  Alright enough TV is my Emmy red carpet top ten...
