Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

13 May

Season finales, upfronts and all kinds of other on and offset shenanigans in this week’s TV Instagram roundup.


Ah, Finn Polmar. All the sighs at Matthew Goode posing it up a storm in court. Please come back next season as there is far too much unresolved tension left to be explored.


Super flexible Alan Cumming also on the set of The Good Wife shooting the finale and woah that’s a lot of bagels for the amount of people in this scene.

This is just a very cool low key shot from the Fox upfronts featuring New Girl’s Hannah Simone.


And this is a very fun dance party shot from the Fox upfronts; I’m two episodes into Empire and I am already hooked.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine ladies serving up a great mix of ‘huh?, ”what?’ and “eh?” face and like Chelsea Peretti I am drawing hearts around this photo.

The last episode of Orphan Black came with a whole lot of wincing at things being poked into other things they probably shouldn’t. Here is Ari Millen modeling with another version of himself.

Day 9. Season 2. Full Squad…Finally!! #YoureTheWorst

A post shared by Desmin Borges (@desminborges) on


The You’re the Worst cast continue to be excellent at Instagram while also making the wait for season 2 seem forever away (still no date). A season 1 rewatch might be the only thing to solve this issue. Already coveting costumes.


And also this.


Taylor Schilling looks exactly how I would in this situation.

Girls and Downton Abbey Win at the Glamour Awards

5 Jun

The UK Glamour Magazine Awards were held at Berkeley Square Gardens in Mayfair, London last night. A host of stars attended the event that honored women in TV, film, fashion and music. So who were the big winners?

Chris O'Dowd Rashida Jones

Chris O’Dowd was on hand to present Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones with the Film Maker of the Year award for Celeste and Jesse Forever (which was one of my favorite films from last year and is currently in my DVD player). In her acceptance speech Jones explains her outfit saying “I wore these pajamas through the entire year since I made my movie.” Jones then followed this up with “I would like to thank Jo Elvin and GLAMOUR for recognising my filmmaking… It’s very fitting for me to be winning an award that is so glamorous, because as everyone knows, it’s very glamorous making an independent movie.” As with Sofia Coppola’s pajama choice at the Met Gala I salute this look; the silk floral Erdem two-piece suits the relaxed atmosphere of these awards. Also Chris O’Dowd is super tall.

Joanne Frogatt Zosia Mamet











The TV Actress category is split into International and UK meaning that two of the most talked about shows received these accolades. Zosia Mamet took home the International prize for her role as Shoshanna on GirlsGirls has received a lot of accolades in the past year but this is the first individual award for Mamet.

Matthew Rhys presented this award and Mamet thanked the UK “for embracing Girls as much as the US has.” Wearing a black Preen dress with floral embroidery Mamet looked very happy posing with her Glamour statue, which isn’t always the case for Mamet on the red carpet. Mamet has been popular with Glamour magazine as she also recently took part in their “These Girls” event in New York.

One show that is just as popular on both sides of the Atlantic is Downton Abbey and so it isn’t surprising that an actress from this show scooped the UK prize. Joanne Froggatt who plays Anna, the head housemaid received this award from fellow Downton Abbey co-star Allen Leech. Froggatt thanked the magazine readers for voting for her adding that is has “made me very, very happy”

Rebel Wilson

It’s been a good year for Rebel Wilson as she has taken the film world by storm with roles in Pitch Perfect and Pain & Gain, as well as hosting the MTV Movie Awards. Wilson will be making the transition to TV in the fall with her ABC show Super Fun Night. Wilson is also the cover star of the new issue of Glamour and she tweeted a photo of it; Wilson is wearing a whole lot of jewels and bubbles and not much else in the shot. Wilson gave fellow Aussie Kylie Minogue a shout out in her speech “Thank you so much Kylie, I just feel so lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky.”

Clare Balding Joan Collins

Presenter of the Year could only really go to one woman and that is the extraordinary Clare Balding after collecting a special award from BAFTA last month. Balding was the highlight of the presenting team at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and in her speech she mentioned an important current political moment “While here at dinner tonight …the House of Lords voted 2-1 in favour of supporting the equal marriage bill… Joan Collins, who was sitting on my table, asked me when me and Alice (Arnold) are going to get married. Alice said in three years, which I didn’t know but apparently that’s right.” Congratulations Clare!

For the full list of winners head to Glamour magazine.
