The Emmy Awards are tomorrow night, and you know I'll be here so we can dish on everyone's hair and makeup choices. But I've been thinking about awards shows in general, and although it's great to get ideas from the celebrity looks, sometimes I can't help but wish that people would take some more risks.

Most actresses played it pretty at last year's awards, but a couple of them, like Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, tried something more individualistic. I don't blame celebs for playing it safe—after all, who wants to risk winding up on the worst-dressed list?—but the looks sometimes become a little samey. Here's hoping for a surprise or two on the red carpet!
