Throughout the years I always share with you something really precious for my family: we don’t really own a TV. And we pride ourselves with that, actually! (and yes, we can perfectly live without). (yes, yes, I know, this is about Anna Paquin and her Alexander McQueen black dress for the 2010 edition of the Emmy Awards! stick with me, we’ll get there!)
That doesn’t mean we’re completely off beat and we don’t know what’s happening out there, in the TV world. We thought it was more fitted that way, for us, for the children. They get to watch great animation movies (yes, in case you’re wondering if my lil’ Pixar weakness has something to do with it: they’re almost all Disney/Pixar animation movies) and more and we get to catch up with big screen novelties every now and then. And yes, sometimes there’s this TV series bug itching us and forcing us into seeing a full season (sometimes two or three) of TV Series in a big, happy, one night sitting. It happened with Prison Break, Lost, Dexter and now it’s been going deep with Breaking Bad!
So it happens that this edition of the 2010 Emmy Awards was a very interesting one for us at least: Breaking Bad won on two accounts: first (chronologically speaking) because Aaron Paul won the award for best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for AMC’s Breaking Bad and then for the Best Actor in a Drama Series: Bryan Cranston from AMC’s Breaking Bad. (oh, and also for Kyra Sedgwick having won the Best Actress in a Drama Series for The Closer – one of my Adored Husband’s favorites). Also congratulating everyone else who either was nominated or worked closely in a nominated project, we’re happy Breaking Bad got such amazing recognition and we’re hoping they’ll get back soon filming. (also, since we’re speaking about special TV series – if you haven’t tried it out, please consider watching The Big Bang Theory. Oh, and Lie to Me? I so hope to see them on the Emmy list one fine day!)
Pretty long introduction, eh? Now getting back to our main focus here: the Red Carpet dresses. I’ll have to start with a special mention for Anna Paquin’s Alexander McQueen dress. Accompanied by her husband and True Blood co-star, Stephen Moyer, she was truthful to her McQueen wardrobe habits (on the Red Carpet, at least). I love the dress, I love the fact that McQueen still gets Red Carpets, I didn’t thought it was such a good match on Anna. What say you? (photos via)
