At the first major awards ceremony of the year, the weather just didn’t co-operate. The skies opened up over Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but it didn’t dampen the spirits – or hairdos, thanks to a giant plastic ceiling – of any of Hollywood’s stars.
Voted by fans around the world, the ceremony was hosted by Glee star Jane Lynch who sang, danced and made fun of Steve Harvey for his now-famous Miss World announcement.
Here’s a wrap of the night’s events. Hint: Kate Hudson’s strapless white jumpsuit won. Everything. All night. Hands down.
Homeland star Claire Danes wore a backless Burberry gown, paired with a super-sleek lob. She was up for Favourite Premium Cable TV Actress, but lost out to Kristen Bell for House of Lies. BUT justice was restored when Homeland took out Favourite Premium Cable TV Show. Phew.
Kate Hudson won fashion for the night in a Stella McCartney jumpsuit, paired with her trademark smile. She wasn’t up for any awards but no one noticed.
Mad Men’s Alison Brie went for simple elegance in perfect peppermint, Quantico star Priyanka Chopra took out the award for Favourite Actress in a New TV Series in a Vera Wang gown, and actress Abigail Spencer went for an eye-catching Alexia Maria gown.
Model and actress Amber Valletta went for neutral tones in Giuesppe Zanotti Design, and winner of the Favourite Cable TV Actress award for Rizzoli & Isle, Sasha Alexander wore Antonio Berardi. Portia de Rossi, who walked the red carpet with wife Ellen DeGeneres, went for a modern, sophisticated look in a matching dress-and-trouser combo by Safiyaa.
