A Quick Recap of the 2014 Emmy Awards

The success of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards favored cable TV over Netflix in surprising levels – despite the recent success of Netflix shows like House of Cards, shows on cable TV took the lion’s share of awards. While this year’s ceremony was none too surprising when all is said and done, a few memorable moments, certain shows that swept the awards table, and a humorous presentation by Seth Meyers, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Kimmel, and Weird Al Yankovic made this a successful and entertaining Emmys.

The most moving moment of the ceremony was the tribute to Robin Williams. His good friend and actor Billy Crystal presented the memorial. Crystal called Robin the “greatest friend you could ever imagine.” His insightful comment that “it’s very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives” struck a chord in the audience.

Touching moments also included tributes to Maya Angelou and Shirley Temple, who were laid to rest during the past year. Sara Bareilles sang a beautiful version of Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile” during the tributes.

As far as awards go, Breaking Bad and Modern Family stole the show. Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad took home a whopping five awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Brian Cranston (Walter White), Outstanding Supporting Drama Actor in a Drama Series for Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Anna Gunn (Skyler White), and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. Modern Family secured wins in Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy), and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

Not surprisingly, the talented actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, most famous for her roles in Seinfeld and Arrested Development, received an award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her show Veep.

The Big Bang Theory, The Amazing Race, and Mom also took home awards.

Moll Anderson’s Tips on Displaying Accessories and Color Coordinating Your Closet

Beautifully displaying your accessories helps you see your options when pulling together an outfit.

Sunday September 23rd had the magic of the Emmy Awards in the air and I got to experience a complete girl’s day happening in my house, especially happening in my closet! That’s right, my best gal pal Sophie and I got to hang out all day together.

We spent several hours unpacking, closet reorganizing and catching up on some guilty pleasure television like any and all Bravo and Style Network shows. The anticipation of the 5:30 hour was exciting! I channel-surfed between E! red carpet appearances and watching my buddy, Fashion Guru Lawrence Zarian, doing his fab thing on the red carpet.

My Emmy HOT picks were Padma Lakshmi in the amazing hot orange Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicole Kidman in Antonio Berardi and of course we always love seeing Keith Urban looking so fine. My WORST dressed pick was Lena Dunham–her Prada dress was completely disappointing! The cut of the dress was hard for any female to pull off! Sorry, Lena!

My accomplishments in the closet proved to be quite satisfying! Check it out:

Color coordinating and organizing your closet like a boutique takes the stress out of getting dressed.

Creating vignettes of your accessories in color prove to make life so much easier when creating last minute outfits. It also allows you to enjoy them when you are not wearing them. Don’t forget to consider C.P.U.: Cost Per Use. Creating a rainbow of color keeps your sweaters neatly folded and easy to find, and also has a pleasant effect on the aesthetics of your closet!

All in all, it was a fabulous day! Send me photos of your “Sunday Closet Cases” to share with me your dilemmas and your great ideas.

Don’t forget to Tune in on XM Talk 168, 2 p.m. PST, 5 p.m. EST to The Moll Anderson Show this Saturday! My guests are Bravo’s Miss Advised, Julia Allison and Katie Rosen of FabFitFun.com
