Neil Patrick Harris was the star of the night at yesterday's Primetime Emmy Awards. He hosted the long show and managed to keep things interesting with his constant jokes and hours of preparation looking up the tiniest, most obscure roles on all the presenters' resumes to introduce them with. Check out all the winners here. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester looked gorgeous together as they took the stage to hand out an Emmy, though their show might not ever be up for any. Jessica Lange beat out her costar Drew Barrymore but the close friends looked overjoyed and the night's cutest acceptance speech might just go to a teary Kristin Chenoweth.
Justin Timberlake was all over the awards with his multiple nominations, though he didn't take any home he did win an Emmy last weekend. Heidi Klum and Seal shared a kiss in the audience, which is a lot less stressful than where she was last year up on stage as one of the hosts. Mad Men and 30 Rock took home the awards for best Drama and Comedy series respectively, but Jon Hamm and Tina Fey didn't win Actor or Actress. While the show was up against some tough competition with Sunday Night Football, NPH did a great job keeping the awards fun, funny and livelier than they've been in years.

We've known about the Seinfeld reunion on the upcoming season of Curb Your Enthusiasm for a while now, but there's something about seeing the foursome all together again in Entertainment Weekly that's making me feel extra nostalgic. (It's almost enough to make me forget about that whole Michael Richards incident from a few years back — almost). In the article, the cast dishes about what we can expect from their stint on Curb (including a revisit to Jerry's apartment and Monk's diner!) and how it feels to have the gang back together. Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
I've drifted in and out of watching Curb for the last few seasons, but, like many of you, I can't wait to see the Seinfeld crew again. Jerry and Larry David also make it clear that there won't be another reunion, so this should be one for the books. Giddyup.
It ain't easy being a funny woman in Hollywood. We've often heard how few good roles are written for women over 35, but the facts really hit home in this video from The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy roundtable featuring women in comedy.
In it, Sarah Silverman talks about auditioning to play Jonah Hill's mother, and Amy Poehler points out that she was just eight years older than Rachel McAdams, who played her daughter in Mean Girls. Not surprisingly, the women lighten the weighty topic with plenty of humor. When Christina Applegate says she was told she was too old for a magazine cover, Silverman jokes "and it was More!"
But seriously, why are women this awesome so often considered over the hill? Why is it easier for men to grow older in Tinseltown?
Environmentally-conscious celebrities headed to the National Resources Defense Council's 20th Anniversary party in Beverly Hills on Saturday night. It was no surprise to see two of our favorite eco-loving celebrities Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio walking the red carpet. Cameron's also had some fun movie news to celebrate — she's in talks to star in a legal comedy called Bobbie Sue. Jon Hamm was also there showing off some scruff while still looking dapper in his suit. Earth Day was on the 22nd and a party celebrating our natural resources was the perfect way to end a particularly environmental week.

Neil Patrick Harris played captain at last night's TV Land Awards in LA, bringing together stars for yet another night to celebrate classic television. Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell were just two of the comedic actors who helped liven up the evening along with stars like Teri Hatcher, who also made time to attend Saturday's attending the GLAAD Awards. Matthew McConaughey wore his award show uniform after spending Saturday promoting Ghosts of Girlfriends Past with Jennifer Garner, joking with the press about marriage and raising kids in Hollywood. The awards show won't air until April 26, but it looks like it has the potential for a lot of laughs with the fun group of celebrities who attended.
A fun crowd gathered for this year's GLAAD awards in LA. Flirty frocks were the name of the game, while one shouldered styles and Michael Kors dominated. Everyone was all smiles, but Julia-Louis Dreyfus made me most happy in her in bright orange Michael Kors sheath. Dig the slit up the side and the cool sci-fi orange Jimmy Choo clutch. Gold bangles and nude peep toes perfectly accented the bold look. Click on for more fashion faves . . .
Julia Louis-Dreyfus won me over as Elaine on Seinfeld — besides being hilarious and unafraid to cause a commotion, her heart belonged to big salads. These days, 48-year-old Julia has a rocking career as the star of The New Adventures of Old Christine, and she's sporting a set of rock-hard abs on the cover of Shape's April issue. Check out that definition! Contrary to what you might be thinking, the actress's amazing shape has nothing to do with plastic surgery and everything to do with leading a healthy lifestyle.
Julia says that she has to "work hard at not being fat" and Shape found out the details behind her strategy for looking and feeling great. She starts her day with a satisfying breakfast and enjoys at least one big salad a day, but she doesn't deny her cravings. She says, "I have a huge sweet tooth, and I feel like I deserve a treat when I work hard. It’s important to give yourself a little of what you really want so you don’t feel like you’re in food prison. Eating in moderation keeps me sane."

Nicole Richie got her hair and makeup all done up at the salon yesterday for good reason — she was on her way to the 18th Annual Environmental Media awards in LA. Joel escorted her to the event, which also brought out celebs like Rosario Dawson, Maria Bello, and Jaime King. The awards honor TV shows and film that spread environmental awareness, so apparently Nicole and Joel are going beyond their efforts towards helping children and focusing on saving our planet as well.
