Ten on Tuesday - Award Show Edition

It's finally Tuesday! Yay! Since the MTV Video Music Awards were on Sunday night and the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards were held last night, I thought I'd base my Ten on Tuesday post about those award shows. Here it goes:

1. Twerking. I was hoping that Twerking would be cut from this year's VMAs, because no one wants to relive that debaucle that was Miley Cirus last year. Well, within the first 10 minutes of the VMAs, there was some twerking. However, if you have a butt like Nicki Minaj, I believe you're allowed to twerk, a little. It was a bit more tasteful, with her cheeks painted at least, so she wasn't bearing all. But it was still a bit risque. Maybe next year will be the end of twerking altogether. Here's hoping.

2. Taylor Swift. I'm just so confused. I liked you better as a Country artist. Why do you want to sing Pop music? She performed her new song, Shake it Off, with a Great Gatsby theme. Although, this new song is super catchy, I like the old Taylor better. But, here's the video to her new song. If I have to have this song stuck in my head, so do you. :-)

3. Kim Kardashian West. I could've gone without seeing her boobs on display, but I'm LOVING her shorter hair.

4. Beyonce is in fact, a real, live person. She actually cried when Jay-Z brought her daughter Blue Ivy on stage. She won a well-deserved Video Vanguard award.

5. OITNB. Can you believe that on the left is Crazy Eyes? Yeah. Hard to believe. Uzo Aduba, Taylor Schilling, and Laverne Cox clean up nicely, compared to their trapped-in-prison characters.

6. Breaking Bad stole the whole Emmy show. Bryan Cranston won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama, Aaron Paul won Best Supporting Actor, Anna Gunn won Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, and there was a lot of writing/directing awards given as well, including Best Drama. Why did Breaking Bad have to end?? By the way, I loved Anna's makeup. It was so minimal, but stunning.

7. The Bromance Award goes to ... Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Have you ever seen their show True Detective? It was nominated for several awards, so it must be good.

8. This happened. Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus reenacted a scene from Seinfield when Julia won her Best Actress in a Comedy Series award for Veep.

9. Chris Hardwick explained a very important grammar mistake while talking about Internet trolls. THANK YOU! (Side note: I have no idea who he was before this. Lol)

10. My pick for best dressed: Amy Poehler. She looked phenomenal in silver.

  3. Whoa whoa whoa - the question is, have you NOT seen True Detective?! Because if not, you simply must. It's amazing. And this last season was the only one that will feature Woody and Matthew, kinda like how American Horror Story works. Seriously - watch it! :)

  4. I didn't watch either, kind of wishing I had watched the VMA's though haha, maybe I can catch them!

  5. Amy Poehler looked amazing. I can't stand Taylor Swift - pop or country. Kim Kardashian West is hot.
