Emmys Watch: Odds and ends

155554__guess_l-Who wants to know the odds for their office’s Emmys pool? (Um, your office does have an Emmys pool, right? No? Anyone? Bueller?) If so, as of this writing, betting site PinnacleSports.com says the favorites are Grey’s Anatomy (Drama Series), The Office (Comedy Series), and lead performers Denis Leary, Kyra Sedgwick, Steve Carell and Jane Kaczmarek.

-Sprint cellphone users may want to take advantage of this info, since on Sunday night, they can compete in a live wireless Emmy prediction contest. Jeff Probst is hosting and competing as well.

-One of those grumbling about the Emmys — since she didn’t win at Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmy ceremony — is Rosie O’Donnell, who gripes as only she can: in free verse, with photos.

-In fact, given the controversy over this year’s slate of nominees, few folks seem to have anything nice to say about the Emmys, but the Hollywood Reporter grits its teeth and dredges up a few tongue-in-cheek compliments.

-Watch out, Isaac Mizrahi! NBC has announced that Project Runway‘s Tim Gunn is anchoring the official Emmy red-carpet pre-show, along with Access Hollywood‘s Maria Menounos.

-Speaking of Emmy-style makeovers, check out this star (pictured), seen at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys, who really cleans up well, given how unglamorous she looks in character on her show. (Know who it is? Post your guess below.)

    Is it not Robin Weigert of “Deadwood,” a show I don’t watch but love her anyway for her all too brief pairing with la-Mary Louise in “Angels in America.” Am I right? Do I win a prize? No. Whatevs.

    You are right, Jon. It is Robin Weigert. Had to do a little digging, since I do not watch Deadwood.

  • Richard

    She kinda looks like the ugly rat-haired woman from that awful show Cold Case.

  • Erik

    Thats cross dresser Calamity Jane herself, AKA Robin Weigert. She looks hot.

    Jane Kaczmarek beats Lisa Kudrow? I don’t wanna see that!

  • Liz

    Grey’s Anatomy better dominate the Emmy’s. That show is amazing! I am still wondering why Katherine Heigel (Izzy) was not nominated. That last episode was unbelieveable acting by her. Jeremy Piven better win for best supporing actor, he is HILARIOUS. :)

    I am not into the Emmy’s they just seem so lazy and arbitrary, really, the low end of awards show. But I’ll definetely watch the red carpet and then head out ot the movies.
    Anything good coming out this weekend? or will i have to watch the moeffing snakes on the moeffing plane?

    If Arrested Development does not win for best comedy series I will cry myself to sleep every night from here to eternity.
    That is all.

    Tim Gunn! Whoo-hoo! Prepare to be Gunn-ed down!

  • alejandra

    No Hugh Laurie? without him in the best actor category, the whole thing is a joke

  • cackey

    Hooray for Tim Gunn on the red carpet! a legitimate (and likeable!) fashion persona giving comments makes the red carpet seem more inviting than it has in years.

  • Margeaux

    Robin, but she looks a lot like Renee Zellweger here.
