Jennifer Carpenter, Claire Danes, Heather Morris, Connie Britton and Wanda Sykes sparkled in their red carpet gowns at the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards. From Jennifer Carpenter in Oday Shakar and Claire Danes in Armani Privé to Heather Morris in Ina Soltani, Connie Britton in Burberry and Wanda Sykes in Zuhair Murad, there was no shortage of glitz and glamour at this year’s award show.
Comedienne Wanda Sykes was seriously glamorous on the red carpet, with copper eye makeup and bronzed lip gloss. Her metallic look reminded us a little of an Emmy statuette, actually. Does this look make you smile as much as Wanda's jokes make us laugh?

This year's LA GLAAD Awards took place on Saturday night, with stars like Drew Barrymore and Glee's Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith stepping out for the occasion. New parents Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane left baby Billie at home for one of their first red carpet outings since their daughter's birth last month. Drew Barrymore had her own guy, Justin Long, to cuddle up with backstage after accepting the night's Vanguard Award for her allegiance to the gay community. Recent rumors suggested that the two had called it quits, but the lovebirds are apparently going strong.
The cast of Glee was present to accept their award for best comedy, and Jane Lynch even gave the audience another peek at her Vogue-ing skills — don't forget to enter our giveaway to win the chance to join the show's gang for a photo shoot! Adam Lambert was there to perform for the crowd despite his always busy schedule, which last week included mentoring the contestants on American Idol.

Joshua Jackson was up bright and early in NYC yesterday to attend the Fox Upfronts presentation. Fringe has already been renewed for another season but you can check out the full Fall schedule here and get a peek at some of the new shows. Other Fox stars like David Boreanaz and Gordon Ramsay joined in the party — even Kiefer Sutherland came by and made an awkward joke on stage about his arrest last week. Last night's 24 finale left us with quite the cliffhanger, but we already know that Jack Bauer will be back next year.

Over the next few months comedian Wanda Sykes better figure out a way to make President Obama funny. Wanda revealed yesterday that she will host the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner on May 9. No word yet if Heidi and Spencer will get an invite this year.
Wanda is a DC native, and dove into politics last year by announcing at a pro-gay marriage rally that she is in fact a lesbian.
She joked yesterday: "The first thing I did when they asked me to do this gig — I made sure my taxes were paid." Judging from that remark, Wanda won't have much trouble making us laugh this Spring.

Wanda Sykes gives her two hilarious cents on why the biggest threat to heterosexual marriage is not gay marriage, but rather . . . divorce. (Ba dum ching!) Her solution? Make marriage like the mafia — once you're in, you're in for life. Sounds like a plan! (The last minute is NSFW, so cover your delicate ears before you get there.)
Elle's gorgeous women of Hollywood celebrated themselves last night, but the night was about more than just showing off their red carpet looks. As each of the ladies took their turn at the podium, they expressed their gratitude for the award, their thoughts on Hollywood, and their sense of admiration for their fellow winners. Here are highlights:
- Lauren Bacall: "It's great that the focus is on women, who are functioning, who are all working, who are productive. I've always been in favor of that, and I've always known that women are capable of going as high as they want to go."
- Amy Adams: "I'm so in awe. I'll be the person sneaking in back to try to get a photo."
- Diane Lane: "There's a lot more opportunity for young women, and that's great, and I like to think that I was there to help pave a few stones. It's wonderful to have all the different stages of a woman's life acknowledged and appreciated."
- Scarlett Johansson: "There's this idea (Hollywood) is this deep, dark place. In reality, I think that it's a reflection of society in general."
It's always wonderful when strong women are recognized for their talents, but it's even more fabulous that they love sharing the honors.

Comedian Wanda Sykes tells it like it is about the American Idol ritual of making the loser sing. Speaking of which--when is that show on again? I'm jonesing for it...
