And speaking of Jon Hamm, John Hamm who? Because Bossy is all about her boyfriend John Slattery, who was also in attendance all silver foxy.
And Justin Timberlake was there. He seems like a nice chap. Even if
it would be his honor to be your new stepfather:
And Bossy’s boyfriend Tina Fey was there:
And she was there:
And Bossy’s husband Kevin Bacon was there with some stranger on his arm:
And finally Emmy was there, and apparently she is super heavy:
Debby saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:43 am
Thanks Bossy, I couldn’t bear to watch (football!). And “Not Bossy” is looking GOOD (although you don’t want to hear that). Jessica Lange? Oy!
Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:44 am
Angie prefers her John’s with an H as well and just as silvery. But Angie thinks Mad Men is an odd show. She doesn’t get its allure and its awards. Angie’s late husband did, though, so she continues to watch it thinking that one day it will get more interesting and exciting.
vuboq saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:50 am
One day, maybe VUBOQ will be able to afford cable again and can watch the Emmys with the rest of the world. In the meantime, luvluvluvluvluv NPH and Mad Men! Yayz!
km saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:53 am
KM loves Mad Men and understands the Slattery fascination. Jon Hamm is a bit too pretty for KM. KM finally understands the environment that women worked in before she got into the workforce and applauds even more Sandra Day O’Connor etc for breaking molds everywhere.
KM is also thrilled with Brendan Gleason’s win which makes up for his lack of winning anything last year for In Bruges which was an awesome movie..KM did not thing NPH was as awesome as everyone said but he was OK.
Kevin Bacon, dear lord, reminds me of a withered old fox. Bossy, I don’t get it.
Gail K. saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:55 am
Thanks Bossy! Just how I like my awards shows – short and to the point! Although you have to wonder why these people feel they need awards for doing their JOBS!! I don’t see any gold statuettes showing up in my hands for doing the laundry.
Guess Gail is bitter this morning because she found out Bossy is married to Kevin Bacon.
William saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:59 am
I am not gay but I would consider it for John Slattery’s character on Mad Men.
The Domestic Goddess saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:59 am
Thanks for summing it up for us. I only care about what they wear and then I read the winners the next day because I’m too busy walking dogs, packing backpacks and chasing little boy hineys back into bed for the umpteenth time.
anne marie in philly saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:00 am
jessica lange looks like crap, kevin bacon is hotness personified…but so is NPH, even if he would not give me a second look!]
have a good week, bossy!
21st Century Housewife saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:15 am
Loved the Emmys, and our cute Neil Patrick Harris was perfect.
The chick with the heavy Emmy was Kristen Chenoweth; she was the same size as her Emmy, so I bet it was heavy. She annoyed me until she said,”I’m unemployed, so I’d really like to be on MAD MEN. Or 24.”
Carrie saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:19 am
Doogie is gay??? Reaaally??? ha ha
Half Assed Kitchen saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:41 am
I know Doogie is gay and that he wouldn’t return my feelings, but I still think he’s hot.
B.E. Earl saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:44 am
We had the “did she, didn’t she” conversation about Jessica Lange last night as well. We finally decided she did, but that it wasn’t great work. Her face was just doing too many weird things when she talked for it to be natural.
Put it this way, check out Glenn Close’s face. She’s two years OLDER than Jessica Lange. 62 to her 60. Whatever work Glenn Close had done was the good stuff, because she doesn’t really look like she had work done. These are all comments from my better half, by the way. I usually can never tell when celebrities get work done. I really don’t care that much.
But last night she pointed out who ridiculous LL Cool J looked with his new face and she was right! What was he thinking?
sherry saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:50 am
John Slattery = gorgeous. Bossy has fabulous taste in silver foxes! NPH, gay? And also, the earth is round, . Jessica looks mostly naturally aged and I applaud her for that. Isn’t she with a silver fox of her own, Sam Shepard? I don’t get the Kevin Bacon attraction at all but Kyra has been my secret girfriend since Phenomenon. The scene where she’s washing Travolta’s hair is sexay!
thatgirlblogs saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 10:16 am
I want a Neil Patrick Harris. He should be hanging around my house entertaining me in his white tux all day.
Meg at the Members Lounge saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 10:24 am
Excellent recap BOSSY! My favorite part was watching Kevin Dillon’s jaw on the floor when they announced Jon Cryer as Best Supporting ______. Can’t bring myself to type actor here.
BTW, Head to silverfeast.com for cuties lncluding John Slattery and our fave TR Pescod. We all could use a shot of salt and pepper on Monday morning!
Manic Mommy saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 10:33 am
Bossy, you don’t mess with my husband Kevin Bacon and I won’t mess with your husband, John Cusack. Deal? Deal.
And I can’t look at John Slattery without thinking of him wanting to pee on Carrie in SATC. But maybe that’s just me.
Jeri saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 10:47 am
Bossy, you have a way with words that just cracks me up. Thank you.
David saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 10:49 am
You didn’t know NPH was gay? Really? Wow. His boyfriend is ultra cute, too.
I would take Jon Hamm OR John Slattery. Just ’cause I like Reese’s peanut butter cups doesn’t mean I hate Twix bars.
Miz Booshay saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 10:54 am
What a funny recap :o)
I am facinated by Jessica’s face too.
It could be a reality show.
I think she had work and then sagged quickly.
Or she had tons of botox and it ran out.
I have saggy eyelids and long to see some saggy eyelids on television.
pkzcass saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 11:06 am
I’ve loved John Slattery since he was on “Homefront.” Bet you don’t remember that one, do you?
Carolyn saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 11:09 am
Wow, thanks Bossy. I feel like I didn’t miss a thing now. And what?!?! Doogie?!? Gay?!? Well, don’t tell my 10 year old self that. She’d be utterly heartbroken! 😉
Meredith saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 11:22 am
pkzcass/#20…I loved Homefront! Everytime I see John Slattery I remember him in that role while everyone else goes “What show was THAT?”
Little Miss Sunshine State saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 11:49 am
I got home from work and my family said “want to go out for AMAZING Mexican food?” and I completely forgot the Emmys were on.
I already knew that NPH was gay, Jessica was saggy-baggy,Tina is brilliant and Justin cracks me up when he is on SNL.
sugarpie saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 12:21 pm
Dont think Jessica’s had any work done (her neck is the tip off) She looks pretty dang good for 60- though she needs a better hairstyle.
On second thought, she look mighty dang good for 60. And she’s an amazing actor.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 12:54 pm
Tina Fey is Bossy’s daughter’s doppleganger. Adorable!
Jack saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 1:27 pm
I am always surprised by how well these awards show do. So many categories, most of them are useless.
The Zadge saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 3:05 pm
Love, love the Silver Fox too. Saw him and the “h-less” Jon at the Democratic National Convention last August in Denver up close and personal- they are both SOOOOOO thin in real life. Silver Fox looked tiny!!!
em saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 3:38 pm
I don’t think there is anywhere else in the world where the pressure to get plastic surgery is higher than here in LA. I bump in to men my own age (I’m 51) and they react as if I’m trying to pick them up. (They all want 20 year olds, apparently.) Awkward. For them. I’m a great big lesbian. Hello, Mr. Conceited, I’m not trying to pick you up! We have a miscommunication going, somehow. I’m thinking of having a t-shirt made up. (I have no idea how straight women here deal with them.)
Avitable saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 3:39 pm
NPH isn’t gay. He’s fabbbbulouuussss!
Reeb saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 4:44 pm
FORGOT the Emmys were on. I only watch to see the gowns spray-painted on the women. So thanks, Bossy.
Reeb saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 4:46 pm
About plasticizing the face: what about Meryl Streep? Has she had work done?
Reeb saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 4:50 pm
Okay, one more. And I really wish your comments had a delete option, Bossy, for those mistakes we post or wish we could re-say (or consolidate, in my case!)
Just saw who the tiny Kristin Chenoweth is. She was hysterical on Pushing Daisies. Which of course was cancelled.
Heff saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 5:09 pm
Please kill Kevin Bacon.
Kerri Anne saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 6:47 pm
That Not Bossy gal standing next to Mr. Bacon has been standing next to him for far too many years. It’s someone else’s turn, right?
I cannot help myself, every time I see/hear Neil-Patrick Harris, I start singing “Two first names, two first names; if you’ve got one name, that’s like having no name; baby, get two names. YEAH!”
Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 8:08 pm
I should have turned Twitter off. By the time it came on on the west coast I already knew who the big winners were.
Kathy B saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:02 pm
Enjoyed your trip to the Emmys. Of all John Slattery’s roles over the years, I probably dislike the Mad Men one the most. But he does it with his usual panache.
Jessica Lange looks real. Too many Hollywood women cannot move a muscle on their faces and look permanently bee stung on the lips. If Glenn Close has had work it is expertly blended. I remember when Hot Lips became unrecognizable.
I loved Kristen Chenowith on West Wing. The contrast between her speaking voice and her singing voice is stark. Thank Bossy, enjoy your blog.
Leah saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:02 pm
You know, I used to love Jessica Lange, but has she gotten all weird, or is it just me? And, crap, if you’re going to the Emmys, and YOU”RE NOMINATED FOR GOD”S SAKE, fix your hair and put on some makeup! Criminy– do I have to tell these people everything?????????
Janet saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 9:54 pm
Loved Homefront. One of my favorite shows ever. Love Jessica Lange also, but thought she didn’t look so hot last night. A different hair style would’ve helped immensely.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 11:11 pm
Dearest Husband, Kevin Bacon,
Bossy tosses the word “husband” around just like a pepper shaker over yesterday’s hospital food.
You are mine, so please tell Ms. Stranger to get to steppin’…..
Jenny saysSeptember 21, 2009 at 11:50 pm
Just found your site and looking forward to following another female blogger who has a knack for unexpected humor.
The Coffee Lady saysSeptember 22, 2009 at 11:58 am
I’m totally with you on John Slattery. Tell you what, let me have him, and I’ll get Mr Coffee to take care of that blonde bird who is trying to get her claws into Kevin Bacon for you.
Well Read Hostess saysSeptember 22, 2009 at 9:35 pm
I had the EXACT same reaction to Jessica Lange. “What the hell have you done??!!” then “HUH. Well. I guess aging gracefully isn’t for everyone.” Then I beat myself with branches and donned a hair shirt as punishment for being such a shallow beeyotch, because REALLY, who the hell do I think I am, anyway?
Glennia saysSeptember 23, 2009 at 3:40 pm
I love Jessica Lange and her old face. I hope she keeps it. I think she did a little ‘tox, which threw it all out of balance. Bad stylist! Bad!
Tootsie Farklepants saysSeptember 24, 2009 at 5:59 pm
Tootsie likes how BOSSY made Drew Barrymore invisible and also wishes that Drew Barrymore would stop dressing up like Marilyn Monroe cuz she looks ridiculous. Drew Barrymore is very cute as Drew Barrymore. In fact, Tootsie kinda wants to date her.
GrandeMocha saysSeptember 24, 2009 at 10:35 pm
Manic Mommy: I call him the “Pee on Me” guy because he wanted Carrie to pee on him.
