‘The Emmys’: TV Review

A night of laughs, milestones and assured hosting by Samberg.

Eric Wilson, fashion news director for InStyle magazine, called the gown fantastic and said its “transparency through the skirt and a keyhole cutout with tough chain straps sent me over the edge.” Designer Michael Costello also praised the dress, saying, “She looked beautiful, but I wasn’t so sure about the chains.In the humorous filmed intro number, Samberg was seen retreating to a TV Viewing Bunker to binge-watch TV for a full year to qualify himself to host Sunday night’s 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

Some actresses came dressed as if their stylists had binge-watched old episodes of “Charlie’s Angels.” Metallic gowns, especially ones with long-sleeve silhouettes, were everywhere. The cut was great for Taraji.” Matthew Marden, fashion director for Details magazine, called Henson “absolutely stunning,” also choosing Sarah Paulson’s off-the-shoulder custom Prabal Gurung in sparkling black and blue in a tie for best-dressed. And live from the Microsoft Theater, he was smooth, saucy, purposefully goofy and assured — even if he just couldn’t resist a couple of not very funny Donald Trump wisecracks. The “Mad Men” daughter has been a regular at New York Fashion Week and showed up in an embroidered yellow top and black wool cigarette pants, all by Dior Haute Couture. “I just don’t understand. But arguably the night’s most thrilling moment — in the ironic category — was thanks to James Cordon, host of CBS’ “The Late Late Show,” whose witty setup managed to turn what is routinely the Emmycast’s most enervating moments into a hoot: the obligatory introduction of the Ernst & Young accounting team that tabulates the Emmy votes. “If you had told me as a small child growing up in England,” said Cordon said in mock-wonder, that he would grow up to present to Emmy’s audience of millions this august trio from the Ernst & Young accounting firm, “I would have said, ‘Sod off!

I’m only a boy, and my brain doesn’t have the room to dream that big.’ But here I am!” But first he reminded the audience of his awful ordeal, and his “long road back,” before assuring fans his famous raunchy comedy style was on the comeback trail. Sometimes simple and sleek is the best way to stand out. “Orange Is the New Black” star Laverne Cox chose wisely with an understated blue Calvin Klein that hugged all her curves. The final piece of evidence: Moments after Hamm had voiced brief, moving thank-you’s for his long-deserved and much-belated win, Samberg, grinning, got the show back on its goofy track.

He called the combination of the delicately embroidered, lavishly gilded top and the skinny trousers a “refreshing take on young Hollywood.” The “Blindspot” actress was liquid and lovely in multicolored Armani Prive, her hair superslick and swept off her face. Henson arrived in a dress as dramatic as her character Cookie on “Empire.” The form-fitting gown, by Alexander Wang, was embellished by golden chain link shoulder straps and featured a sexy cutout at the bodice. Alexander said she loved the high neck and long sleeves because they hid “all the leftover tattoo residual stuff I have on my body right now,” referring to the tats her character sports on NBC.

Marden named Hugh Dancy in a Ralph Lauren Black Label double-breasted tuxedo and Claire Danes in sparkling, purple Prada with a bit of heavy gold link on the sides as his best-dressed couple.
