The 2012 Primetime Emmy nominees were announced yesterday morning with Mad Men and American Horror Story both at the top of this year's list, and BuzzSugar editors Becky Kirsch and Shannon Vestal are sharing their first impressions on the biggest snubs and surprises. Watch as they share their excitement over the New Girl nomination for Max Greenfield, why they think Hugh Laurie was robbed, and more!
Just yesterday we were pondering whether Hugh Laurie, the latest addition to the L'Oréal Paris family, would speak in his House accent or go back to his British roots for his first ad for the cosmetics giant. And we think we have our answer as we've just seen behind-the-scenes footage of Hugh preparing for his role with a nice manicure! The actor introduces himself as Gerard Butler, telling us that "this is how I look before I've applied L'Oréal's skincare for men." It's a hilarious spot and a sign of what's to come from L'Oréal's latest ambassador. Seeing this, does it make you pleased that Hugh has signed on or do you think it's going off-brand?
Who knew that Hugh Laurie signing on as L'Oréal Paris' latest ambassador — he'll join Gerard Butler in promoting the Men Expert range — could cause our readers to go into such a tizz! Some of you were thrilled to learn of the House star's appointment because of his "real man" looks, but others thought it was "ridiculous." Either way, it's got people talking and we can't wait to see his first ad — we wonder if he'll speak in an American accent or return to his English tones for the commercial? If you can't possibly wait, we've got a little something to whet your appetite, his official L'Oréal Paris promo shot! What do you think of it, huh?
Actor Hugh Laurie has been named the latest celebrity to join the brand ambassadors for L'Oreal Paris. The House bad guy will join hottie Gerard Butler in fronting the L'Oreal Paris Men Expert range. He's the second newest L'Oreal face in recent weeks, with the cosmetics and skincare giant adding model/actress Liya Kebede to their celeb-studded stable at the end of June. What do you think of the latest addition? Good choice, or not quite up to the standards of Mc Dreamy and Mr Butler?
The Winter TCA is underway outside LA, and last night was Fox's turn to show off their talent and upcoming shows. The Golden Globe nominated cast of Glee attended last night's party, though leading lady Lea Michele missed out on the festivities. Bones duo Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz dropped in on the party, as did Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein from the medical drama House. Cory's co-stars Chris Colfer and Matthew Morrison were back together this morning to join Conan O'Brien and How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris for the Funny Men in TV panel. Check out the snaps!
Jimmy Fallon sang and danced as host of the Emmys in LA last night, and the fun kept coming for him and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, as they moved on to the Governor's Ball with other winners, nominees, and presenters. Mad Men's Jon Hamm raised a glass to his show nabbing its third consecutive best outstanding drama series award—do you agree with its win? New mum Amy Poehler stuck close to Tina Fey, while Kevin Bacon couldn't take his eyes off his lovely wife and best actress in a drama honoree, Kyra Sedgwick. Lost's Michael Emerson chatted with co-stars Daniel Dae Kim and Henry Ian Cusick, as The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev chatted with best supporting actor in a drama Aaron Paul. He totally won us over with his cute press room excitement right after hitting the stage. January Jones, meanwhile, cuddled up to her special date, Jason Sudeikis, in her show-stopping Versace gown along with Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston. The Glee kids, like Mark Salling, Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison and Chris Colfer, celebrated Ryan Murphy and Jane Lynch's wins all together. We've got you covered for TV's biggest night—make sure to check out shots from the red carpet, exciting behind-the-scenes press room photos and the entire list of winners here!
As we continue to pick this year's Emmy winners, it's time to take a step up from supporting actors and actresses and take a closer look at the leads. The race for best lead actor in a drama is a pack of heavy hitters to say the least—four of these guys have been nominated in their roles before! Let's start with the newcomers: Matthew Fox scored his first nod for the final season of Lost, while Kyle Chandler's name appears for the first time after being overlooked in past years for Friday Night Lights. This marks Hugh Laurie's fifth nomination for House and Bryan Cranston's third for Breaking Bad (Cranston is also undefeated thus far!). Michael C. Hall and Jon Hamm also have three nods apiece for Dexter and Mad Men, respectively. The competition is so fierce even I'm having trouble figuring out who deserves the trophy. That's why I need you all to weigh in and help me decide. So, who's your pick?
It's time to bust out the big guns! After going through several rounds of supporting actor picks, it's time to take a looksee at the lead actor in a drama noms at this year's Emmys. It's a toughie, this one, so who will be the last man standing? Here's our take!
And don't forget to check out all of our Emmy polls ahead of the August 29 ceremony!
US TV channel Fox showed off the stars and shows of their upcoming season in New York yesterday. Host of So You Think You Can Dance US, Cat Deeley, brightened up the blue carpet in yellow. Lea Michele continued her events reign in a short, colourful number after Glee creator Ryan Murphy denied rumours that she's difficult or a diva on set. He also said that they are talking to Britney Spears about tapping into her musical archive! Lea's castmate Dianna Agron looked red hot as she posed for photos. As did Jayma Mays who, along with the rest of the Gleeks, is preparing to head off on a US tour. After some time at Cannes with Diane Kruger, Joshua Jackson was back on American soil to promote Fringe, Cory Monteith joined the rest of his Glee castmates and Hugh Laurie suited up to usher in a brand new season of House.
Move over, Chuck Bass—there's a new man in Leighton Meester's life. Well, on the big screen anyway. Meester is set to star opposite Hugh Laurie in the upcoming indie comedy The Oranges. The film focuses on the relationship between a man and his daughter's best friend, which naturally causes turmoil in both of their lives.
Presumably, Leighton will be playing the friend and Laurie will be her older suitor, with Catherine Keener also set to star. The pervy dad shacking up with Lolita-type isn't exactly a groundbreaking idea (American Beauty immediately comes to mind), but the comedy genre is what's getting me here. Can you see Meester and Laurie having chemistry and comedic timing?
