Lena Dunham won the red carpet this year (by losing it)

It’s been 13 years since Björk laid an egg at the Academy Awards. And if the Oscars’, Emmys’, and Golden Globes’ red carpets are the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Gowns, that’s nearly 40 nights of appropriate and borrowed, jewel-toned and fish-tailed, corporate-sponsored parade floats accessorized with diamonds, security guards, and phonetically spelled designer names for E! Entertainment’s “mani cam” (MOH-neek Luh-HOO-lee-ay).

As award show arrivals have morphed into a shameless interstate billboard—stars can earn a cool million for their jewelry choices alone—red carpet fashion has in turn become a bland gated community filled with highly rehearsed Vanna Whites pretending they actually picked out their clothes. Nominees always look so…nice.

Then Lena Dunham arrived at the Emmys. READ FULL STORY

Will Cary Joji Fukunaga's man braids spawn copy cats?

Since Jared Leto didn’t walk the red carpet at Monday’s Emmys, another man’s locks had to be an object of obsession. Thank goodness True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga was on hand—and donning some excellent braids. Fukunaga won an award last night for directing the episode “Who Goes There,” but his hair emerged as the most talked about element of his appearance on the broadcast. Has the man bun given way to man braids?

The former has been around for longer than you think—The New York Times had a man bun trend piece back in 2012—and it shows no evidence of going out of style: Kit Harington trotted out the bun on the red carpet yesterday, while Leo DiCaprio donned one in his ice bucket challenge video. Still, Fukunaga’s braids sent corners of the Internet into a frenzy, perhaps heralding a new age of hipster men’s hairstyles. READ FULL STORY

A brief history of Lead Actress in a Comedy Emmy shenanigans

At the Emmys, lead actresses officially have the most fun. This year’s make out session between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston is just the latest stunt pulled by the funny ladies nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category. Louis-Drefyus has been the main perpetrator of the category’s goofiness in recent years—but the legacy of shenanigans precedes her now three-year winning streak.  Let’s look back at the greatest hits.

Billy Eichner and Seth Meyers quiz New Yorkers about the Emmys

Billy Eichner took his screaming act to the big time during an Emmys segment with host Seth Meyers, running around the streets of New York to test strangers about their awards show knowledge. Strangely, not that many people care about Tatiana Malsany’s snub.

They got someone to actually donate money to the cast The Big Bang Theory, Billy really wanted to talk about Judging Amy, and someone thought Seth Meyers was actually Seth MacFarlane. Billy asked one woman: “You’re a lesbian, do you watch Orange Is the New Black?” She responded in deadpan fashion: “I do, but I’m not a lesbian.” READ FULL STORY

The 2014 Emmys will be a tight race, what with the battle between Rust Cohle and Walter White. Will Breaking Bad take one final Outstanding Drama statue before going out in a bullet-ridden blaze of glory?

Can Amy Poehler break free from being a perpetual nominee with a long overdue win? So many questions will be answered tonight—and EW’s Hillary Busis, Darren Franich, Jeff Labrecque, and Mandi Bierly will be here to live-blog the festivities.

Woman watches all the TV in EW's 24-Hour Emmys Binge Guide, lives

It is a massive undertaking that requires a Stevie Nicks dance party, forced insomnia, and the stamina to do a whole lot of sitting.

Dedicated fan Ellen Lloyd (@eel8) took up EW‘s challenge and livetweeted through an entire day’s worth of Emmy-nominated shows featured in the EW 24-Hour Binge Guide, with the Twitter time stamps to prove it. And Lloyd wasn’t messing around. Per the guide’s eating and drinking requests during various shows, Lloyd ate like the Dowager Countess during Downton Abbey with tea and Peppermint Milanos and drank like Scandal’s Olivia Pope (albeit in the form of a grape Popsicle in lieu of wine).

It wasn’t easy: Lloyd had to shirk off her distaste of Girls by watching the divisive “Beach House” episode, yet she managed to handle Dunham’s irresolute Brooklyn hipsters. It’s a feat to be admired, so Lloyd’s endeavor will henceforth be referred to in this post as “The Binge.” READ FULL STORY
