2016 Emmy Nominations Quick Take – Costumes (Updated with Winners)

14 Jul

This intro is usually where I would complain about the lack of nominations for The Americans, but this is an Emmy miracle as Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys and the show all received nods today and I maybe blacked out after this so I’m catching up on everything else still.

It wouldn’t be the Emmys without some grumbles and only about half of my wish list made the cut – no Leftovers, Rachel Bloom, Aya Cash and more – but I am so surprised/amazed/happy about The Americans finally breaking through in its forth season that it somehow softens the blow of the other snubs.OutlanderI’m here not to talk acting nominations, instead I want to take a quick look at the costume design nominees. There are three different categories for costume; contemporary, period/fantasy and variety/non-fiction/reality. Specific episodes are chosen to submit and some of my favorite costume moments from this year are featured including the incredible red gown designed by Terry Dresbach for Claire Fraser to wear to the fanciest of fancy parties on Outlander, the jaw dropping revenge/mourning/coronation outfits as worn by Cersei in the Game of Thrones season finale, everyone in white at the wedding that turned disaster on Transparent and Lady Gaga’s stunning American Horror Story purple number.

As with every category there are some notable omissions including Katie Irish taking us further into the 80s on The Americans with Elizabeth’s cover Patty, all the many covering up coats and the Princess Di inspired maternity wear. The Knick picked up some technical nominations, but I am disappointed this isn’t one of them.

In the contemporary category I am thrilled to see Daniel Lawson recognized for his Good Wife costumes particularly after this one of my snubs from last year. As with last year I am sad to see some of the bold wardrobes from comedy not among the nominees with Salvador Perez for The Mindy Project and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Tina Nigro missing the cut. Girls had a stunning season and for Marnie’s red dress alone I would have loved to see Jenn Rogien on here.

The full list of costume design nominations are here and congratulations to all on this list!

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

3 Feb

Another award show this week and that means more behind the scenes action from getting ready to after the after parties. Plus Grease: Live live, X-Files props, Empire sleep wars and some high levels of cute in our Insta round-up.

Oh, hello.

 

From the stage Laverne Cox gives us a view from the other side of the amazing OITNB winning cast.

 

And OITNB’s Emma Myles shows what the end of a SAG winning night looks like.

 

Kether Donohue crushed it in Grease: Live as Jan and I got a whole lot of IRL bestie feels from this post. Plus I am coveting Aya Cash’s outfit hard.

 

From the actual opening of the show (which was a feat of technical brilliance) and Vanessa Hudgens deserves all the kudos she is getting for her incredible performance. Great lipstick too.

Support for Grease: Live across the networks and a crossover I now want to see.

 

A slightly different shot of Jenna Dewan-Tatum on her way to the Hail, Caesar! premiere and the classic ‘lying down to avoid creases’ situation. 

 

Last night’s episode of New Girl was directed by none other than Nick Miller himself; Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield posted a shot that captures him in all his glory.

 

The Empire sleep wars continue.

 

This one ends a little more violently.

Adorable overload.

 

JDM smolder, Will Patton, bagels and a dog make for a good Good Wife set day.

 

This brow contest is too close to call.

 

This week’s episode of The X-Files set my giddy levels to new highs and being a huge fan of Kumail Nanjiani podcast, The X Files Files it was so great to see him in this super fun episode. This is the file Nanjiani was given and Gillian Anderson’s reaction to this gift is hilarious.

Behind the Insta Scenes: Photos from the Set

16 Dec

Star Wars is taking over this week and we’ve got more photos from the cast on their epic promotional journey. Plus plenty of TV action including a Jessica Jones treat hidden in the middle as it is guest star spoilery, an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt singalong and the Orange is the New Black ladies coming out in force to support one of their own on Broadway.

 

Starting with something very cool this week and a super mesmerizing video of Lupita Nyong’o for The Guardian. Getting a whole lot of turtleneck joy from this outfit.

 

Lupita looked like a knockout at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens world premiere on Monday and here is a selection of the earrings she got to choose between to add even more sparkle to her ensemble.

 

Like everything about this press tour so far this photo is just so much fun. More outfit awesome from Lupita.

 

The Jane the Virgin mid-season finale made me cry (standard) and this is a whole lot of camo leggings on display.

 

Best renewal news as The Leftovers will be back for a third and final season, which gives Justin Theroux a chance to flex his new Instagram muscles (dude is already a pro). I love that the hair and makeup team are all wearing Guilty Remnant like attire.

 

Things are a lot better between this pair in real life than for their onscreen counterparts. So much so that Justin Theroux has begun to morph into Liv Tyler’s head.

 

Speaking of co-stars hanging out – the Orange is the New Black ladies turned out in force for Danielle Brooks’ big Broadway opening night for The Color Purple and this video is giving me so many feelings.

 

As with their OITNB behind the scenes shots these ladies are all about the Insta sharing and it was impossible to choose just one.

 

And here is another delight.

 

More big Martha hair on The Americans and what must be one of many cans of hairspray they get through in creating these updos.

 

Want a tour of the New Girl set? Well Jake Johnson has just the thing for you. You might need to slow it down to get a glimpse of everyone/everything.

 

Nadia is coming back to New Girl! This outfit/hairstyle is magnificent.

 

America Ferrera looking terrific for the crazy early Golden Globes announcement (my live stream kept buffering so I didn’t get to see a whole lot of Ferrera presenting, I did get to see Dennis Quaid pronounce “Saoirse”) and this dress definitely falls into the ‘perfect for announcing award nominations’ category (if there is one).

 

So this is definitely a guest star spoiler which is why I have buried it in the middle of the post and I love how Jessica Jones got their Daredevil fill in this way. Firstly we need more Rosario Dawson on TV and secondly it worked very well for the narrative. And look how happy they both are.

We actually already have 4 Golden Globes.

A post shared by abbi & ilana (@broadcity) on

 

While I would love to see this show get awards love, I can’t be too mad about the snub when they post stuff like this.

 

Broad City is going to have a very special guest in season 3, but all of my questions from this shot are to do with the many pencils in Ilana’s hair.

Once again the main reason I will be watching Grease: Live is for all things Kether Donohue.

 

This was meant to go up in last week’s post and it is just too good to let go; who wouldn’t want to watch The Wiz with the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt team?!

 

Julianna Margulies delivering super fierce face in this behind the scenes shot from the Good Wife winter finale.

 

And because I am constantly wondering where Robyn is – now Jason has gone can she come back please? – here is Jess Weixler looking stunning on her wedding day (ditto Jessica Chastain) and this is giving me wedding dress ideas (which I really need to start thinking about).

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

9 Dec

News faces to the TV Instagram world, plus plenty of finales, shows to catch up on and behind the scenes action in this week’s collection. Film Insta is also making an appearance with fabulous outfits, singing and selfie sticks.

 

Look who joined Instagram this week! And he’s already been on a posting blaze including this very muddy looking shot from The Leftovers. Those jeans are going to feel mighty crunchy.

 

It hasn’t been easy for Kevin Garvey this season on The Leftovers in the getting covered in substances department and there has also been plenty of blood, sweat and tears (and snot). Luckily it is all smiles behind the camera. Delighted to see the all important aviators making an appearance.

 

All fun and games for the Dickie Dollar Scholars on Scream Queens and I don’t have any opinions on the finale/killer reveal yet as I won’t be watching it until later. I don’t have high hopes tbh as the season in general has been pretty patchy, but Glen Powell is the gift that keeps on giving.

 

Same goes for Nasim Pedrad who looks rather chipper for a dinner picture.

Now for a very different setting and outfit for Nasim Pedrad as she will be back on New Girl this season.

 

An accurate representation of the face I would make if I ever ran into either Stephen Colbert or Gina Rodriguez.

 

Finding this whole thing very adorable. And maybe shipping Petra and Raphael as a result.

 

 

Getting the gang back together on Arrow. Although one very important person is missing.

Super cute casual outfit from Mindy Kaling and I am so behind on the Mindy Project. The theme of this month is realizing that the festive season will hopefully be a good time to catch up on all the TV (when I’ve done everything else first).

 

Never getting bored of Looking group shots.

A post shared by Krysten Ritter (@therealkrystenritter) on

 

These are some very Jessica Jones looking jeans (of which I have many feelings about) and unlike last week I have managed to watch a whole bunch of episodes. SO many yell out loud HOLY SHIT moments and I still have 2 episodes to go.

 

I guess this is what happens on set when there are beds to lie down on.

 

Agents of SHIELD costume designer Ann Foley took over the Costume Designers Guild official Instagram this week and there’s plenty of behind the scenes action including the cast and those who make the costumes. Would highly recommend checking it out.

 

Gonna end things with some film Insta highlights this week as the Star Wars press tour cranks up a gear and these two beauties work leather and quilted jackets with aplomb.

 

Okay so this song has super creepy connotations, but Daisy Ridley’s hashtag says it all when it comes to Oscar Isaac singing.

A post shared by Elisabeth Moss (@elisabethmossofficial) on

 

The caption on this photo says it all really. Loving this lip color on Elisabeth Moss.

 

Halfway through Jessica Jones and the Jessica/Trish friendship is currently my favorite thing on a long list of things I really like about this show. There is a rich history and their relationship is so incredibly layered; it’s not always easy, but they can count on each other even when they disagree. Glad to see it looks just as fun on set.

 

Now for more Jessica Jones cast shenanigans. This time with hats.

 

Speaking of excellent lady friendships on TV; here is another terrific one. Also loving the red beanie vibes.

 

Because there can never be enough pictures of the Looking dudes.

 

Things might not be in a great place for Jane and Raphael at the moment, but everything looks peachy between Gina and Justin.

Mindy Kaling mixes patterns with aplomb with her wardrobe and decor choices; everything about this screams my perfect room (okay I would probably switch out the poster).

 

Veering into movie Insta because I can never have enough of Effie Trinket and these A-MAZING looks.

 

Fox gifted us with a Grease: Live teaser yesterday and I am so ready for Kether Donohue as Jan (and Aaron Tveit as Danny).

Getting Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vibes from this Elementary set dressing and woah do they really get the best views.

 

The Scandal love interest web continues to spin ever on and while I was very much Team David and Abby, I could definitely get on board this new pairing. The regifting in the last episode was not a classy move though and David loses points for that one.

 

Celebrity weddings and the coverage of these events can range from no photos at all (see Jen and Justin) to a magazine deal (see Brad and Angelina). And then there is Sofia Vergara who decided to cut out the middle man and use social media to share plenty of photos of her special day with Joe Manganiello. This custom Zuhair Murad gown is stunning.

 

And there are plenty of Modern Family faces on hand to help celebrate the big day. For many more dancing and party pictures of the big event head here. Meanwhile I will be contemplating the politics of celebrity access particularly at an event like this.
