Is Barbara Walters finally retiring? What is season four of Arrested Development going to look like on Netflix? Did The Great Gatsby do great business at the box office?
Sometimes the best fashion accessory isn’t a cool bag or awesome sunglasses, but a loving partner! The red carpet for the 2012 Emmy Awards was awash with adorable PDAs from some of the biggest A-listers in television. Breaking Bad star and newly minted Emmy winner Aaron Paul could hardly keep his hands off of his lovely fiance Lauren Parsekian, and Broke Girl Kat Dennings was seen looking deep into the lovey dovey eyes of boyfriend Nick Zano. Power couple Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt looked very much the adoring duo (and now we know what that special twinkle in her eye is all about). Jon’s Mad Men costar Christina Hendricks came in on the arm of husband and 500 Days Of Summer goofball Geoffrey Arend. Head on down to the gallery below for some awww-inspiring photos from the 62nd annual Primetime Emmys!

Kristen Wiig‘s Vogue profile is basically a mushy love letter from every single person she knows. As it should be! “I don’t know if anyone ever showed up better equipped for the show than Kristen did,” SNL head writer Seth Meyers gushes. “She was immediately great at it, and it’s a very hard job to be great at. Her characters were broad but built out of incredibly subtle observations.” Sean Penn, Wiig’s costar in the upcoming film The Comedian, might have them all beat in the compliment department, though. “I don’t go to a dinner party where people don’t refer to her as a genius,” he claims. “She’s a writer, she can invent characters and stories, and she has a touch that translates. It’s her game to play.” Man, if only the Target lady could see Kristen now. You know she would approve.
As with most famous ladies, fame brings with it fashion, and in the article Wiig praises Alexander McQueen, Nina Ricci and Isabel Marant as her favorite couture. “I always say I want to look haunted.” the Bridesmaids star said of her Golden Globes Bill Blass frock. The only flaw we could find in the profile? The writer describing Kristen as “the face to watch in female comedy.” How about the face to watch…winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay? The face to watch…killing it on your TV every week? The face…who looks great despite what said face’s owner thinks? “I’m going to need a lot of under-eye work,” Wiig joked about hitting the red carpet. “Concealer.”
There’s a reason why Donald Trump looks so glum in this picture, while John Legend and girlfriend Chrissy Teigen look like they’re having a ball. Celebrities flocked to Washington D.C on Saturday for the White House Correspondent’s Association dinner and as usual the glam factor was pretty high. But the best part of the evening was that Trump was trumped by President Barack Obama and later, by Seth Meyers, who made some pointed jokes at The Donald’s expense in response to the “birther” debate.
Obama cracked some big ones like, “I know he’s taken some flack lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate issue to rest than Donald, and that’s because he can get back to the issues that matter, like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?” Meyers rubbed it in even further with jibes like, “Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic, because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.” Ouch. Donald’s massive ego must’ve taken an even more massive beating!
Now you see why Trump looks dyspeptic, right? But even he can’t deny that the dinner was an amazing success. The ladies looked gorgeous in full-length gowns (except Michelle Trachtenberg who needs to take it easy on the goth lipstick). Mila Kunis, Anna Paquin, America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson and a very pregnant Alyssa Milano hit it out of the ball park. Paula Abdul looked pretty fantastic too—surprise surprise. The men repp’d it with the likes of Ian Somerhalder, Chris Colfer and Chace Crawford looking sharp in their suits. This also happens to be the night Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn made their hand-holding public. Page Six reports that Scarlett and Sean were all over each other at dinner with a source revealing, “She plopped down in his lap, and they were kissing.” We may not have pictures of their make-out sesh, but we do have plenty of the rest of the stars in all their finery. Check them out in our gallery below.
