Mad Men won Outstanding Dramatic Series at the 2008 Emmys last night, becoming the first regular cable series to receive the honor (and the first cable program—period—to win the award for its first season). Unsurprisingly, the glamorous cast showed up dressed to the nines to celebrate their smash success. Check out photos of Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Jon Hamm and others—as they show off a more modern sense of style, for a change.
Entourage star Jeremy Piven dissed the five-host format: “It was a celebration of nothing,” the outspoken actor announced. “I was confused.” [OK!]
Although she was a big winner for 30 Rock, star Tina Fey (pictured above with Amy Poehler) was also a loser. “If anyone’s seen my purse, I left it under my seat,” Tina announced backstage in the pressroom. [People]
Presenter and nominee Christina Applegate, who underwent a double mastectomy in July, declared she was, “…doing fantastic! I am great!”
Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson partied and didn’t leave each other’s sides at the TV Guide afterparty at the Kress in Hollywood.

Someone has stolen Casey Aldridge‘s camera, and the culprit (allegedly a Wal-Mart photo department worker – apparently Casey has yet to join 2008 and upgrade to a digital ride) is now trying to sell the private pics found on the camera – including one of Jamie-Lynn Spears breastfeeding their daughter Maddie in which her left boob is straight up exposed. Hot, right? Not so fast! That bosom belongs to a seventeen year old child (give it a year, it’ll be hot then), and because Jamie-Lynn is a minor, anyone selling or buying those pics could be busted for violating “federal laws prohibiting pornography.” They’re also stolen, so that alone gives the cops reason to nail somebody.
There are other juicy pics on the camera too, including one of “Britney holding the baby and one of Jamie Lynn, Britney, Brian (Brit’s bro), Lynne Spears and Jamie Spears around Jamie Lynn’s hospital bed.” Aw, we wanna see! [TMZ. Photo: WireImage]

Tina Fey not only took home Emmys for Best Actress and Outstanding Writing, but her NBC sitcom 30 Rock was named Best Comedy. Clearly, Fey ruled the night by being one of television’s most gifted brains. But it wasn’t just brains that were on display at the 60th Annual Emmy Awards — there was also a battle of beauty on the red carpet. Browse pics of hotties from Mad Men, 30 Rock, Desperate Housewives and other shows.
What has happened to the man we wanted to make out with back in 1988? George Michael was arrested this weekend in a public bathroom (again?!) for possession of crack cocaine and weed. You may recall that George’s been busted by the cops before – once in 2006 for drug possession, and in 1998 for participating in a lewd act in an LA bathroom. He was released with “a caution,” which seems like a really nice punishment for something kinda serious, right? The “Faith” singer later released a statement to his fans, saying: “I want to apologise to my fans for screwing up again, and to promise them I’ll sort myself out. And to say sorry to everybody else, just for boring them.”
Oh don’t be silly George, we could never be bored by your antics. Remember: you won’t let us down, and we won’t give you up. Promise! [Photo: GettyImages]
Doctors have now revealed that they expect both Travis Barker and DJ AM to make a full recovery from the burns they sustained in Saturday’s tragic plane crash. In a press conference, their doctor at the Joseph Still Burn Center in Georgia told reporters that Barker is burned on his torso and the lower portion of his body, while AM reportedly suffered burns on his arm and head. Rumors that they had chartered the plane because the wife of Barker’s assistant, Chris Baker, was in labor were false, AM’s rep asserted over the weekend. The lear jet had been chartered to get the celebrity DJ backto LA for a previously scheduled commitment. Baker died in the crash.
Barker’s ex-wife Shanna Moakler flew to be with the Blink-182 drummer on Saturday, and singer Mandy Moore (AM’s ex), and Jermaine Dupri have also visited. A statement from the families was released over the weekend, which reads, “The families wish to thank fans from all over the world for their prayers and concern. Deepest sympathy is expressed to the loved ones of those who perished in the crash. As the two recuperate and mourn this loss, privacy for them, their families and friends is requested at this time.” [Us, E!. Photo: Getty Images]
At 11:53PM last night a private Learjet carrying Travis Barker and DJ AM crashed while taking off in Columbia, South Carolina. The plane, which was supposed to travel to Van Nuys, California, overran the runway, broke through a fence, and crossed a highway before colliding with a shoulder alongside the road. A driver who witnessed the crash said the plane looked like a fireball as it crossed the highway. Barker and DJ AM were admitted to the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia in critical condition, while four other people on board were killed including pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, co-pilot James Bland, 52, Chris Baker, 29, and Charles Still, 25.
Barker and DJ AM, who perform together under the name TRVSDJ-AM, played a free outdoor concert Friday night in Columbia, South Carolina. Other performers at the event included Perry Farrell and Gavin Degraw. TRVSDJ-AM also performed at the recent MTV VMAs. [CNN. Photo: Getty Images]
Hey, kids—tired of your older siblings taking money from you? Tell them about Ryan Mueller, a 31-year-old thief sentenced to six years in jail because he was caught shaking twenty bucks out of a two-year-old’s piggy bank.
Michael Jackson believes, among other things, that if you peel the skin off of a chicken it magically becomes organic! Michael’s close pal David Gest revealed: “I’ve been best friends with Michael for 40 years and I will defend his reputation until the day I die. When we hang out we visit antique stores, play Frisbee and go to KFC – he thinks if you peel the skin off the chicken, it makes it organic. He cracks me up.”
