2012 Emmy Awards Red Carpet – The Boys

Posted on September 24, 2012

Kittens, the boys are boring. You know it’s true. We appreciate that they all mostly put the effort in, but there’s so little variation in male red carpet dressing that there’s almost nothing to talk about here. There are only so many ways to say “Hem your pants,” before it gets boring as hell. Just enjoy the pictures and our occasional commentary. Or play F-M-K. That’s always fun.



Aaron Paul

 We like the unusual color scheme but this could have been better fitted.


Adam Driver


Alex Karpovsky


Aziz Ansari


Ben Feldman


Bill Hader


Bryan Cranston


Charlie Cox


Damien Lewis

Denis O’Hare


Eric Stonestreet


Evan Peters in Giorgio Armani


Jack Houston


Jay R. Ferguson


Jeremy Davies

 Hipster tux. We dig it, but this was not the time for the hipster boots.


Jim Parsons


Jimmy Fallon


Jon Hamm  in Giorgio Armani


Justin Mikita and Jesse Tyler Ferguson in Black Fleece for Brooks Brothers


Mario Lopez

This, by the way, is the tux custom-made for Mario by Unruly Heir, from that episode of “All on the Line, with Joe Zee.”


Matt Barr in Giorgio Armani


Matthew Perry


Michael Stuhlbarg


Peter Dinklage

Every man in a poorly fitted tux should look at Peter and feel deep, abiding shame.


Reid Scott


Rich Sommer


Richard Madden


RJ Mitte


Vincent Kartheiser

 Personal best.


Vincent Piazza


Zachary Quinto

 Do NOT like colored shirts with tuxes.

    I thought the same thing when I saw a shot of Peter Dinklage earlier today. If that man, with all his tailoring needs, can get his hem perfect, what excuse are the rest of you slobs using.   The man is a sexy beast, whatever size he is.

    • tereliz

      Am I the only one who forgets that he is not actually blond? Whatever, he still looks amazing. 

      • RebeccaKW

        Blonde or not…sexy.

    • I’ve always thought he was cool and kinda hot, but post-Tyrion Lannister that vague crush has turned into FULL RAGING CRUSH. I just adore him. I was totally bummed he didn’t win last night, although I really do love Aaron Paul, too.

    • AmeliaEve

       He looks amazing. But to be fair, Dinklage is never going to get a suit off the rack. I’m sure he has every single thing he wears tailored, and he’s got the experience to know what to ask for and how to get it.

      A guy like Evan Peters probably has relatively little experience with alterations, and goes into things like this assuming his clothes will fit OK without a lot of effort.

      • When he won the Emmy last year, his tux was a disaster. Someone got torn a new one, apparently.

    • AtticWife

      Hell yes. Mega sexy.

    • YoungSally

      Agreed — I see him occasionally walking his dog…and he is totally scruffy hot.  I didn’t realize how much until I saw him play Richard III at the Public a few years back.

    • ziarah


    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      OMG I totally and completely concur.  He’s gorgeous.

  • CPK1

    dinklage looks amazing. also damien lewis looks hot but his pants look too long and his weird stance is a tiny bit disconcerting

    • mshesterp

      I didn’t think about it much when I saw him win last night, but comparing him to everyone else, I think Lewis looks fantastic.  Love the cut of the suit.

      When you see Le Dinklage, it makes you what excuses these other idiots have for not having their suits fit perfectly.  Why?  It’s just a suit!  It’s not nearly as complicated as dressing a woman!  Dinklage looks terrific.  Rroww.

    • filmcricket

      Lewis looks like he’s ready to do a set at the Copa. That’s a very old-school tux he’s wearing.

      • emcat8

        I would like a table in the front row, thanks.

        • RebeccaKW

          Save me a seat.

      • jabes

        He’s really working it. The cut of the trouser legs is fantastic on him.

  • Rebecca Johnson

    Tyrion Lannister for the win! I love that man.

  • Aaron Blair

    Richard Madden is damn pretty.


      • Laura Maki


  • Jecca2244

    Really glad you did this! It was nice to see that a lot of my favorite tv actors were actually there! Richard Madden…we are in love and you just don’t know it yet. 

    • theblondette

       Richard loves a LOT of us. But it’s fine. We can timeshare.

  • S_Swift

    Bill Hader’s posture makes it look like he has long gorilla arms. Or maybe he just does and it’s not the posture. Anyway, it’s great. I love a goofy guy. 

  • SassieCassy

    I don’t know what’s happening, but I’m starting to crush on Vincent Kartheiser.

    • Sobaika

      Me too! His (hopefully unintentional?) skeevy vibe has been fading lately.

      • terpsichory

        He clearly graduated from the Wheaton School of Skeeve. While they I enjoy their work and they seem perfectly lovely people, on screen, they make my skin crawl.

    • mshesterp

      He looks shockingly good in that suit.  One of the best dressed in the list.

    • Whenever he’s out of his Pete drag I crush.  It’s that smile!

      • roadtrip1000

         And those eyes.

    • Seriously, it’s like things that would make other guys look skeevier make him more appealing. 

    • megohd

      omilord! I loathe him (in character) as Pete. I saw this picture and gasped. Not just from surprise, but from lust. 

      • AtticWife

        EXACTLY. I frickin loathe Pete Campbell and always have this viscerally negative response to VK in interviews or whatever, but that look is the hotness.

    • Spicytomato1

      I’m right there with you. And it looks like we’re not alone!

    • Not weird! Kartheiser is totally yum. And while we’re at it, Damien Lewis is one tall drink of ginger water!

    • dress_up_doll

      Joining the VK crush club. My heart actually skipped a beat when I saw his pic. He’s got a great smile and lovely eyes.

      • asympt

        He’s been crushworthy forever, since he was jailbait in Angel.  Where’ve you guys been?  They cast him in creepy characters but.  Just sorry I missed his recent onstage turn in San Jose–

        • roverrun

          I saw it, he was great and very nice to chat with after the show.

          • asympt

             Jealous now.

    •  Not gonna lie…. I’ve been crushing for a long while. *sigh* Pete Campbell’s just misunderstood, you know??

  • AnnPopovic

    Really wish they’da picked Jimmy Fallon to host rather than Jimmy Kimmall. I vote this Emmys the least funny ever. Also wish Jesse T. had won; he’s adorable and we should lavish him with gifts and statues. And his plaid suit was lovely. Especially the blues with the orange hair. Made me happy. Also, isn’t someone going to discuss Portia’s…whatever that was? 

    • SassieCassy

      Yeah, I thought the opening was cute, but overall the show and Jimmy fell flat. And I hated this year’s winners. The Academy pretty much picked the opposite of who should have won in every single major category. Hmmph.

      • Sobaika

        They sent a nice heaping of awards Louis CK’s way – who I personally thought was deserving – but other than that, I was disappointed in the winners too. I gave a giant facepalm when Amy Poehler’s name wasn’t announced.

      • cam_lo

        **Except best supporting actor in a drama series. 🙂

    • filmcricket

      They weren’t going to give an NBC star the hosting gig for an ABC broadcast. Fallon hosted a few years ago when it was NBC’s turn. I personally can’t wait until it’s CBS’s again, because maybe we’ll get lucky and Craig Ferguson will be tapped to host.

      • Sobaika

        I wish, he would be hilarious.

      • AnnPopovic

         I was thinking, the whole show, “Gee, JEFF would be better at this…”

        …in my pants… indeed.

        • you’renotmysupervisor!!

          Sex Partyyyyyy!!

        • asympt

           “Geoff”, please!

          And Secretariat!

        • “Here come da Playas!!!”

      • Omigod, Craig Ferguson would be great!!!

      • Honestly, if Craig Ferguson comes to perform anywhere near you, you need to go.  As funny as he is on TV, he is hilarious in person.  No censors!

    • MilaXX

      I thought the open with him in the bathroom was funny.

    • Little_Olive

      And can we say something about the lame writing of the presenters’ bits? Second-grader English homework dialogue is funnier. 

  • vintagejulie

    Sadly no Cumberbatch, but I don’t think he posed last night.
    Too bad, he was wearing a deep navy blue suit with a waistcoat from Spenser Hart.
    Lovely, lovely man.

    Quinto looked very pretty.

    • He was just cast as the next Bond villain. Can I get HELL YEAH!!?

    • not_Bridget

      It wasn’t bad enough that Cumberbatch didn’t win for Sherlock.  But he lost to Kevin Costner, with no tie & stubble….

  • A. W.

    You guys should write a post showing what’s good and bad fitting-wise for men, a primer of sorts. Most of us ladies haven’t got a CLUE about men’s clothing and what to look for in fit.

    • Ms_Flyover

      I think of the fit on men’s clothing much the way porn was defined once.  I can’t describe it, but I know good fit when I see it.

    •  Same as for women really – no gaping, no drag-lines from it being too tight and a flattering shape.

  • SapphoPoet

    Boy, am I out of touch. I only recognized a handful of names. 

    • mjude

      you are not alone in being out of touch.  i too only recongnize a few.

    • chelwi

       I recognized Matt Barr because I went to high school with him. Crazy seeing someone I (kinda) know on TLo! Definitely don’t think anyone else should have a clue who he is though.

  • pattyw

    Who are these guys? Love Aziz, who, IMHO, did not get enough credit for his actually funny presenter banter. He can host the entire show next year in a British accent.

    • mshesterp

      I know!  But then they stuck him with that girl from Suburgatory, which was a really weird combo.  But he’s funny as all get out.  Loved when Louis CK (jokingly) shoved him out of the way to accept his award.

      CK, coincidentally, often looks like a hot mess as well, but is someone I find unreasonably adorable.

      • Sobaika

        Agreeing to the CK crush – I guess he’s not necessarily conventionally attractive and all that, but I’d hit it.

        So friggin’ hard.

        • Wendi126

          Get in line.

        •  OH yes. It would be good and DIRTY.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Haha I love me some Aziz!  There’s a video of an interview with the whole cast and when Aziz is answering his question, he answers in a British accent.  It was hilarious!

  • oh Vincent Kartheiser, you dirty little vixen, you.

  • F: Lewis, Hamm, Lopez
    M: Paul, Ansari, Parsons, Mikita/Ferguson, Quinto
    K: Hader, Perry

  • Puckndc

    SOMEWHERE out there is a decent stylist, and men’s designer…..pretty disgraceful…..I’m going into the full length mirror biz…..apparently there aren’t any in LA

  • I think it’s funny how many of the guys opted to do “wacky” poses – maybe they’re also bored by always having to wear tuxes and this was a way to liven things up?

  • We could play “critique the facial hair” because there are some ATROCITIES going on in that department.

    • Agreed. Some of it is just GROSS (Jay Ferguson) and as for the others, you’d think the least they could do was freaking shave.

    • There is some sort of abysmal and highly contagious fungal growth going around the men’s dressing rooms apparently. What is that horrible thing creeping up Jeremy Davies’ face!?

      I suppose if they can’t figure out how to hem pants, I surely can’t expect them to figure the complexities of shaving…

      • AnnPopovic

         I think Jeremy’s stuck with that…isn’t he sporting it ’cause it wouldn’t be Dicky without the extra layer of sleaze?

        • Billie_Dawn

          Yeah, I’m pretty sure that Jeremy Davies has to look that way because he’s shooting Justified right now. But I like to think that he’s grown fond of that mangy haircut and is going to keep it. He’s an . . . interesting guy.

          • AnnPopovic

             Agreed…and Justified is one of the best things on the telie. And not JUST ’cause of Timothy O in  cowboy boots.

            That’s a whole cast of people you wouldn’t mind buying lunch for.

    • formerlyAnon

       I just can’t with that.  I seem to be SO out of touch with the boundaries on that one, I am sure that my preferences in grooming facial hair are laughably old fashioned. All I can do is beg that they decide between beard and clean shaven with a tux – no stubbly half-measures, whatever fashion decrees acceptable..

    • *sigh*
      Very disappointed in Rizzo.

      And Jeremy Davies… I used to think he only *played* total freakshow messes. I’m thinking now I gave him too much credit.

      ETA- required for the role or not— styling choices could have been made…

  • Freaking neck beards. I do like the occasional shawl collar instead of revere.

  • Myra C

    Is it me or were a lot of guys having a problem standing up straight?  Lots of “Leaning Tower of Pisa” men.

    • I think a lot of women get posing tips or have taken modeling lessons, etc. Guys tend to just freeze up in front of the camera.

    •  Completely agree…a lot of awkward “I don’t know what to do with my hands” poses.

  • Catiline

    I’m enjoying Bryan Cranston’s jazz hands in that shot.  And I think Quinto’s hair looks wonderful.

    Adding my voice to the Dinklage love as well. 

  • MsALVA

    Oh, you missed the complete Hell to the NO that was Giancarlo Esposito’s shiny shiny tux. 

  • filmcricket

    “Every man in a poorly fitted tux should look at Peter and feel deep, abiding shame.” So, so true. That is a sorry collection of poorly-fitted suits and even worse facial hair, right there. I get that guys probably don’t like shaving, but it’s the Emmys. This three-day-scruff nonsense has got to stop.

    It all also reminds me of that very old Rita Rudner line: “They’re happy if they all look alike, it means they haven’t made a mistake.”

    All that aside, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his fiance are cuter than a basket of puppies.

    • ” It all also reminds me of that very old Rita Rudner line: “They’re happy
      if they all look alike, it means they haven’t made a mistake.”

      God ain’t that the truth? My husband HATES looking different, even if different is better.

  • M_E_S

    Please tell me Aziz Ansari got his suit from Brooks Brothers boys.

    • imspinningaround

      It’s like, the cuts are slimmer, AND it’s cheaper!

  • Dot

    Holy hell, Vincent Kartheiser brought it last night.

  • A Lannister always hems his pants.

  • Since I’m not a man and I know nothing about wearing a tux or a suit – what is up with not buttoning the bottom button on the jacket?  Wouldn’t it look nicer if you did so you wouldn’t see the bottom of your shirt?  

    •  I don’t know WHY it is, but apparently that is the correct way to wear a jacket.

    • roadtrip1000

      Carson Kressley once said on Queer Eye, in regard to the closing of mens jacket buttons (starting from the top): “Sometimes, always, never.” Why on earth I remember that I can not say. Maybe because he said it with such authority. At any rate, I think sometimes rules were made to be broken.

      •  Carson Kressley also said that only children and whores should wear red shoes. So we know he talks rubbish.

        • roadtrip1000

           I see Disquis misplaced your comment. I hate it when that happens. 🙂

  • MilaXX

    I love Aaron Paul’s suit color, shame the fit is off
    Jeremy Davies looks like he wandered over from the set of Justified
    I love Jesse Tyler Fergusen, but the matching tuxes he and his fiance are wearing kinda bug.
    Mario Lopez looks okay, but the fit is off

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Jay R. Ferguson looks like Lon Chaney Jr. right in the middle of transforming into the wolfman.

  • Ms_Flyover

    Bryan Cranston & Jon Hamm get the M, Rich Sommer gets an F for reasons I’ll never be able to articulate and despite that suit.  If I had never seen anything else Vincent K. had worn, I’d think he was terrific.  Unfortunately, I’m just stunned he cleans up that well.

    Probably lots of K’s on the list for me, all related to my age and lack of interest in hipster anything (My exception is Joseph GL, who I have no inappropriate thoughts about, but who I believe is the most talented and interesting of his generation.)

  • ccinnc

    Oh my, thank you. I love Aaron Paul – he was adorable last night. Who is Jack Houston? His face has bedroom all over it. (I know, Google is my friend.) Vincent Kartheiser looks amazing. Glad that Jon Hamm’s junk was (apparently) properly stashed. RJ Mitte is cute. 

    • DinahR

      Jack Houston is on Broadway Empire.  His character wears a half-mask because of face disfigurement during the war.  Damn shame, that is. He is also a relative of Angelica Houston, I believe.  Nephew maybe?  

      There are so few of these people I actually recognize/know on this list.  I felt so excited that I was familiar with one of them and I had to pipe up. 🙂 

      • roadtrip1000

         Thank you. I thought he looked familiar but I wasn’t curious enough to google him. So that’s what he looks like without the half-mask!

    • not_Bridget

      It’s actually “Huston.”  He’s a grandson of John Huston.  And also had a role in Parade’s End, which just ran on BBC. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch–coming to HBO next year….

  • mshesterp

    I actually thought he was working that tux out!  He pulled it off more than most men could hope to attempt…damning with faint praise??

  • Also, didn’t recognize Michael Ginsburg. And I’m always amazed how different Bryan Cranston looks in real life. Does he just not use moisturizer for about a month before shooting starts? Bryan has none of Walt’s deep forehead crags.

    • Spicytomato1

      I know, it took me a minute to place Ginsburg, too.

  • gabbilevy

    Wow, Pete Campbell is almost unrecognizable, in the best possible way. 

  • MzzPants

    Kartheiser bathed.  Let the masses rejoice.

  • I need an assessment on Giancarlo Esposito’s odd fetish suit.

  • HOLY HELL AT Vincent Kartheiser. He is sofa king hot I just cant even….

  • Scoobydrew

    Peter Dinklage always looks so stylish. 

  • kalisa

    I don’t even know who half these men are. 

  • Anathema_Device

    I gasped at how disheveled Kevin Costner looked when he was onstage for the Hatfields and McCoys acceptance. He’s not pictured here, but did he show up that rumpled? Did he get caught in the Fallon/Stewart/Colbert faux wrestling? 

    • filmcricket

      That faux-wrestling bit (and Stewart’s subsequent AWESOME take-down of the Emmys’ predictability) was the best part of the night, IMO. I have to assume that either Jon doesn’t have control over submitting the show for the award, or he wants new members of the writing staff to get a shot at glory, because otherwise I think he’d take the show out of the running to in the hopes that Colbert might finally get his due.

      • Anathema_Device

         I agree. And as an aside, if I were near that aisle, I wouldn’t have cared about my loaner designer gown and jewels, I would have jumped in the middle of that dog  pile in a heartbeat!

    • My husband looked at him and said “where is his tie?” I said he’s a douche, what do you expect. 
      He snickered, but then after the acceptance speech, yeah, he had to agree.

  • drdirection

    Are you going to give Kevin Costner a personal thrashing?  Not only was his suit (no tie, sloppiest collar ever) a disgrace but his speech was pompous and annoying

    • filmcricket

      Ugh, I know. And they refused to play him off for so long, too. I know the Emmys have a hard-on for movie stars, but that was ridiculous. Douchetastic in the extreme.

    • Billie_Dawn

      What an absolute slob. Shameful. I was actually anticipating a T Lo meltdown this morning.

    • Spicytomato1

      I didn’t watch so I’m curious about his speech. Not curious enough, however, to bother to Google it.

  • tired_mommy

    Mario Lopez was pretty nice to wear the Unruly Heir (from All on the Line) suit to the Emmy’s. It doesn’t look like a tux and the exaggerated shoulder still looks ill fitted. 

  • Dunno who Reid Scott is but the man knows how to wear a tux.

  • NEWS ALERT TO ALL STYLISTS! The top collar  on a man’s jacket should NOT sit 2 ” away from his neck! A good fit matters more than any fancy designer name on the inside of a tux! Okay?

  • TAGinMO

    Ansari (whom I find really annoying, but credit where it’s due)
    Houston (don’t know who you are, but ROWR!)
    Barr (ditto)
    Kartheiser (and ditto again)
    Hamm (The Classic)
    Mrs. Jesse Tyler Ferguson (well DONE, JTF!)

    Perry (someone’s given up)
    Reid Scott (jacket’s too small; one size up, and he would have been on the first list)
    Quinto (eesh)
    Mitte (the male “gotta pee” pose; too bad, because you look awfully cute, Boy I Don’t Know) 
    Lopez (I think we know why that particular designer was on that particular show)

    • RJ Mitte is on ‘Breaking Bad,’ where he plays the teenage son. I think he’s actually a few years older than his character; still, I feel ashamed to find him hot.

    • ccinnc

      Mitte has mild cerebral palsy IRL, so I’ll give him a break on his stance.

  • Ceur

    RJ Mitte looks h a n d s o m e.

  • aimee_parrott

    I can’t believe Jeremy Davies wore his Dickie Bennet hair on the RC. 

  • Damn, Ginsberg looks HOT! As does Jon Hamm, but that’s not unusual. 

    • He really does! I don’t know if it was the hair or the really nice-fitting tux, but Ben Feldman looked better than usual. I saw an interview with him from a couple weeks ago where he had this awful long patchy beard, but someone must have mercifully convinced him to shave it off.

  • I like Jeremy Davies’ hipster tux, but can we please talk about what in the holy f*ck was going on with his hair?

    • Billie_Dawn

      It’s for his Justified character. They’re shooting right now. 

      • I was infinitely cheered by the Dickie hair, because it means that we will have more Justified soon and get to see Dickie be the anti-Boyd: not smart, not slick, not sexy, not the least bit charismatic, and not understanding why Boyd keeps coming out on top.

      •  Aha. Well… I guess that’s acceptable, then. I accept it, but I still don’t have to like it. 🙂

  • All those uglmoes (well almost all) and no Benedict Cumberbatch?  I want BENJI!!!!!!!!!

  • SublimatedRage

    So cumberbunds are not a thing anymore?  I thought men who wore bows and no vest wore a cumberbund — not the “match your tie to your prom date’s dress” kind of thing, but just a simple black one? 

    I think the guys in the nice tuxes with the single button closed and the little white triangle popping through looks totally sloppy — even on the nicely fitted ones like Reid Scott and Richard Madden.  The peek-a-boo of the white shirt at the waist looks unattractive to me.  Am I still a relic from the 80s?

    Also — What is with the plain black “suits” like on Alex Karpovsky?  That looks like something a dour accountant would wear — not evening attire at all!

    • unbornfawn

      Completely agree with you! Hate the peek-a-boo effect! These are expensive suits/tuxes. Come on guys.

  • I so agree with what TLo said about Peter Dinklage.

    My first thought about Mario Lopez was that he stopped by the red carpet on his way to/from work. And then I see that it was a custom made tuxedo? Color me disappointed.

    And I’m thisclose to liking Zachary Quinto’s outfit.

  • StephanieLovesTLo

    Just got a craving for a Hamm sandwich. Seriously. Perfection!

  • Reneesance

    Is Zachary Quinto raiding The Doctor’s closet?  I think he’s going for adorably awkward? Maybe?

  • SVLynn

    I think maybe the guys have been reading your blog, usually there are so many with pant puddles over their shoes, they’re all looking pretty amazing. Hamm might have lost the Emmy, but he wins here, damn is he dashing or what?

  • BrooklynBomber

    Sheesh out or 32 people I’ve only ever heard of 8 of them (and it’s about the same ratio with the ladies). i need to watch more tv.

  • Someone needs to remind Mr. Perry and Mr. Lopez that you should always button your coat unless you’re sitting down. And STOP PUTTING YOUR DAMN HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS, GUYS! 

  • mmmmm. handsome scroll down of classy cuties.

  • LadyCelia

    Oh Mario.  Your custom fitted tux needed a better fitting (and facings, and interfacings, and hair canvas, and pad stitching, and, and, and).  The set of the sleeves makes me weep.  The overall fit, well, it’s just not good.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I’ll take Denis O’Hare to block.

  • I was hoping you’d do a couples post of Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westveldt; they both looked as fine as I’d ever seen them last night, and her very simple swath of deep blue dress was my second favorite (after Tina Fey, who was just grand) of the night.

  • LadyJazzmine

    Jon Hamm was born to wear a tux. That is all.

  • Belvane

    The boring clothes allow for fun games like finding the horns or antenna or martini glasses on their heads from the lettering on the wall behind them.

  • any man that needs lessons in RC posing needs to look at Denis O’Hare. Posing god, that one!

  • Lilak

    Aw, Hamm . . . If only your jacket hadn’t been just a smidge too tight across the middle . . . ’cause every other aspect of this (and you) would’ve qualified for werqitty-werq-werq-WERQ.
    (And such a shame your collar was such an unholy mess for your audience headshots early in the show.)

  • megohd

    Jeremy Davies played Charles Manson in a remake of Helter Skelter, and if ever anyone was typecast … Dude creeps me out beyond all reason.

    • Have you seen “Spanking the Monkey”? Yeah, the man was born to play creeps.

  • Coco Cornejo

    Would someone please teach these men how to pose for RC photos? They all look disheveled. Which makes for a sad look. 

    Also, am I the only one distracted by the oh-too-busy wall of logos behind the people posing on the RC? The Y in Emmy has become rabbit ears. The gold statue itself looks like an unfortunate fascinator. And, yes the ABC ball does make your butt look fat.

  • tereliz

    Men of Mad Men are really looking sharp tonight, with a few notable exceptions. Seriously, Stan Rizzo, wtf died on your face? 

    Ginzo looks nigh unrecognizable in a very bangable way and Vincent Kartheiser has totally won me over. The beard should not be working but oh hell yeah does it. Jon Hamm is pretty much impeccable. 

    • megohd

      WOW! I didn’t recognize Ginzo at all. I saw that photo and thought, “Who invited Andrew Keegan—is there some kind of Seventh Heaven anniversary being celebrated at the Emmys this year? “

    • AtticWife

      Holy crap, I did not recognize Ginsberg either!! I was like, “Feldman, Feldman… that name is ringing a bell and that guy is cute, but…?” Lookin’ good, Ginz.

    • Is it just me that thought “Ginzo” was a portmanteau of Ginsberg and Rizzo? Maybe it’s just me…

  • That tux they made for Mario…horrible fit in the arms and the shoulders look all out of whack…do like the blue however.  It’s nice to see something other than black on the red carpet.

  • BazoDee

    Oy that step and repeat has to go -some of the guys have bunny ears and some have antennae. 
    I mean Matt Barr had to do that on purpose right?

    Otherwise -carry on.

  • xmixiex

    I don’t know who Reid Scott is but I WANT TO. 

  • PinkLemon

    Reid Scott – even though you’re a total dick on Veep, YOU WILL BE MINE.

  • Wendi126

    Can’t really explain….but FFF for Adam Driver
    Is Denis O’Hare Joel Grey’s doppelgänger ?
    Glad Aaron Paul won- his performance as Jesse in Breaking Bad is riveting

  • sk8tfan

    I swear you could start a drinking game with those improperly hemmed trousers. I’d pass out after the fourth screencap. Gentlemen, please, a little respect for Miss Emmy! And rather than FMK, I’d rather have a fact-sheet explaining who half of these men are.

  • Amy Graham

    John Hamm…perfection….

  • MissMariRose

    Holy cow! Vincent Kartheiser looks like sex in that picture. I’m downloading that for my wallpaper. 

  • Bree The Vole

    I’ve loved Vincent Kartheiser ever since he was on Angel (extremely unpopular opinion, but oh well) and I love that he’s finally making non-bum appearances. It’s a shame never gets credit for his acting skills, and instead clubs whine when he enters because they think he’s Pete. (http://www.mercurynews.com/entertainment/ci_21344779/mad-mens-vincent-kartheiser-talks-about-stage-role) What the fucking fuck, people.

  • Spicytomato1

    Oh goodness, seeing Jeremy Davies instantly makes me lament the end of Lost again. Loved, loved, loved him as Daniel Farraday.

    Sigh. I’m OK now.

    • dharmabum8

      Same. I kept expecting him to mumble science-y stuff and be yanked off stage by Eloise Hawking. I love that he’s so batshit cray cray.

  • kanewatkins

    Since short-statured people are almost never proportioned like any off-the-rack clothes, they almost always have their clothes altered or custom-made. Peter Dinklage may live in a world where most things aren’t sized for him, but he always wears custom-made clothing out of necessity, and always looks fantastic for it.

  • Snailstsichr

    Call me a dork, but I was quite smitten with Jim Parsons.

    • formerlyAnon

       For somebody who so perfectly embodies PTA-dad-who-works-in-tech in looks, he does clean up surprisingly well, doesn’t he?

    • CallumCaulder

      Sad to see him flying solo, he and his bf are adorbs together.

      • His BF was there. They just don’t pose together.

  • Rand Ortega

    Is it wrong that all I want to do is smother Peter Dinklage w/ my entire body? He’s so intense. So beautiful . Those deep, soulful eyes.
    Are Justin Mikita & Jesse Tyler Ferguson wearing matching ties? Are they on their honeymoon? In Hawaii?? SMH, ya’ll. Seriously.
    A darker grey shirt would’ve made Zachary Quinto’s tux really stand out. Instead, he looks like a construction worker who put on a  jacket at a restaurant that requires it.
    Reid Scott is very handsome. I have no idea who he is.
    I thought Dennis O’Hare was Joel Grey.
    Aziz Ansari can do no wrong in these eyes. He looks amazing. & cute. His AmEx commercial still kills me.

  • DCSheehan

    I’m kinda digging ZQ’s look here. Agree with the blue shirt issue, but is that a grey tux? As someone who can’t pull off black, this would be a great option for me. If I ever needed to wear s tux…

  • AtticWife

    OH MY GOD, VINCE KARTHEISER! Damn. Pete who?

  • Love the bow ties, hate the straight ties, wouldn’t have minded some plaid or smoking jacket chic.

  • jilly_d

    Two things: I have irrational Celebrity Hate for Kartheiser but he looks incredible here. I have never before wanted to bone him, until today. TWO: I FLOVE PETER DINKLAGE. currently in book Two of GOT, and Tyrion is my gave character. Can’t WAIT to start watching the show and see Peter’s take on the Imp.

    • jilly_d

      Also: Gawd, Damian Lewis is fiiiiine.

  • neofashionista

    Love Aaron Paul he at least brought a little freshness

  • Oh, Vincent Kartheiser, marry me now.

    I had a bunch of other things to say, but I’ve forgotten what they were…

  • holzfaellen

    Vincent Kartheiser had a bath!!

  • frannyprof

    I never thought I would say this about Pete Campbell, but MEEEOOOWWW!!

  • nannypoo

    They do all sort of look alike. When Aziz Ansari walked out onto the stage he completely left the woman from Suburgatory behind, so she seemed to be following him to the microphone. I thought he was rude, self-absorbed and disrespectful.

    • Billie_Dawn

      I actually thought his mini-sprint to the prodium was going to lead into some sort of a joke. Like she was going to ask why he didn’t wait for her, and he says because he’s so excited, blah blah blah. But no, he was just being kind of a douche.

    • LuxuryLime

      It was COMPLETELY rude and ill-bred of Aziz to do that. I was shocked! And I actually liked him. Now I’m not so sure.

  • janetjb

    Surprised at the variety of tuxes worn.

  • Why do they even bother putting the second button on when the boys only button the top one?

  • Wait, he’s wearing a custom tailored suit and it still looks that sloppy? Yikes!

    Also, next year I vote all men show up at the Emmy’s in beach attire. We’ll hold a wet t-shirt contest for them.

  • EverybodysStarling

    I’ll have the 21 & 27, please. With some sweet sour sauce.

  • The lack of Cumberbatch is disturbing.

  • Judy_J

    My best…Ben Feldman, Jon Hamm ( of course), Michael Stuhlbarg, Vincent Kartheiser. Michael is totally rocking the Arnold Rothstein bow tie.

  • emcat8

    Hee, I kinda like Russel Edgington’s dotty bow tie.

  • librarygrrl64

    Wow, Vincent Kartheiser looks like he actually showered! I even like the beard, and I’m usually not a big fan of them.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    I love Mondays when they are red carpet re-hash days! Truly my favorite days! All the dresses, all the gasps and if no gasps then all the bitching! Love love love!

  • meridian5

    One thought I kept having last night… doesn’t Damian Lewis looks like he’s related to Hugh Laurie?   Like his ginger son or something?

  • formerlyAnon

    The boys may be boring, sartorially, – but I appreciate that you give them blogspace T & Lo.  I enjoy casting my eye over the astonishing number of ways the fellas can wear approximately the same outfit.

  • Zippypie

    Aaron Paul looks adorable and though it’s not the best fitting, I give him super props for doing something different.

  • I feel very out of the loop in that I don’t know who more than half of these guys are. Pop culture failing grade for me! 🙁

    Are there any red carpet pics of the SHERLOCK crowd? I have yet to find any, and they were the only reason I even watched the damn broadcast (and why I’m now sulking). 

    About the only guy I had a WTF? reaction to was Tracey Morgan. Seriously, WTF?

    • Zippypie

      I know….where the heck are Benedict and Martin??!  I didn’t expect them to win, but hell, I did expect to find them!

    • not_Bridget

      Cumberbatch & Freeman aren’t yet big enough “stars.”  According to the US mass media–Sherlock fans know better!  Things will change after The Hobbit & the new Star Trek film open…..

      In the meantime, check the fan sites.  The spam filters here slow down posts that include URLs.  But, if the x’s in DEAREJExTUMBLRxCOM were replaced by .’s, you could see some stills & motion shots of our boys at the Emmys…. 

  • guest2visits

    Aww… but they’re all so cute.

  • Stubenville

    Okay, I don’t watch a lot of mainstream TV, so if there is some tragic reason why Jeremy Davies had a huge chunk of hair missing from the left side of his head please don’t flame me. But WTF is up with his hair? Did he have surgery? It looked just awful when he presented.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      i looked this up for you–you made me curious–&, while i cant find a single word on his having health problems i did, indeed, come across an article begging or lambasting or [you choose] him for having, yes, flock o’ seagulls hair. i cant remember the name of the guy who sang i ran [far away, night & day, ect & ect] & all i elsewise remember about him is that my sister, very imprudently, threw herself at him & he, as awful as he was, quite rightly turned her down–but that was years ago. anyway, while i cant say this is the definitive whycome about JD & the hair, it might at least be a dollopful smidgenful helpful.

  • e jerry powell

    Do NOT like gray tuxes.

    Why is Jon Hamm not naked?

    Tell all these men to keep their hands out of their effing pockets when they’re posing on the red carpet.

    Is Denis O’Hare losing weight?  I’m not sure how I feel about that.
    Oh, he’s just not standing next to his husband.

    They must call them monkey suits for a reason, and that reason is Jay R. Ferguson.

    Other than that (and Jim Parsons’ face), 500 iterations of the same look, most of which don’t fit so good.  Menswear, meh.

  • I barely recognized Vincent Kartheiser! Personal best indeed.
    Also, Damien Lewis…’nuff said.

  • GTrain

    Where was my Harry Shum Jr? I need some Harry Shum Jr in a tux.
    I loved Aaron Paul’s look; can’t roll my eyes far back enough for Jeremy Davies.

  • granddelusion

    And theyre such bad posers! (W ith two exceptions — I’ll let you guess who they are)

  • ccm800

    Dunno who 70 percent of these fellows be. 

  • ChelseaNH

    Given how little effort they have to expend into getting ready, you’d think men could invest a little more time in learning how to stand in front of cameras.

  • missinmass

    Every time I see a pic of Jon Hamm my eyes go right to his crotch.

  • While I love Jeremy Davies, he showed up looking like Dickie Bennett in a tux minus the greased-stained ball cap.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    my there are a lot of them.

  • quiltrx

    Jeremy Davies, I love you, you crazy, crazy thing!!

    Aaron Paul looks adorable; Peter Dinklage looks immaculate.

    And why does Matthew Perry’s ONLY facial expression say, “Why YES, I DID cut a nasty fart!  What are you going to do about it?”

  • bitterk

    I know actors get reamed in the press for wearing anything but a black tux, white shirt and bow tie but talk about yawning.  This is downright snooze inducing.  

  • cam_lo

    aaron paul is a god. 

  • allisankelly

    Pete Campbell looks sexy as hell with that beard.

  • Seanybills

    I’m pretty sure Vincent Kartheiser is trying to impregnate me with his eyes.

  • OMG, you’re the best Uncles ever – I LOVE playing F/M/K!

    Fuck – Jon Hamm
    Marry – Charlie Cox
    Kill – Mario Lopez

    And I do love the wackiness that is Jeremy Davies – god, I miss LOST!  I loved my Daniel Faraday.

  • splix71

    No Cumberbatch? :(((

  • siriuslover

    Ah, Matthew Perry, I love you. With every failed show I still love you.

    And I’ve already said this, but who took these photos? Half the guys have antennae coming out of their heads!

    • Linderella

      CANNOT stop laughing at the antannae.
      And Matt Barr (whoever he is) has perfect devil horns.

      • I was thinking kitten ears. I wanted to draw whiskers on his face.

        • Linderella

          Oh, even better!

  • ojosazules

    My sister went to the same college as Peter Dinklage and she says that he has always been a very sharp dresser. 

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Bill Hader, I love you but you need to go back to the after-office happy hour because this outfit sucks.
    Eric Stonestreet – WTF is going on with your jacket sleeves? Did you take inches off of one to add to the other for funsies? It looks like it.
    Jesse Tyler Ferguson – I fucking love you and your what looks like very muted plaid and your bowtie and your arm-candy/lover/boyfriend/partner/fiancee (if anyone hasn’t seen it yet, check out his new video announcing his charity, Tie the Knot. Hilarious).

  • The Hollywood gods weep at the misspelling of Jack HUSTON’s last name.  Anjelica’s none too happy, either.

    And I know Michael Stuhlbarg does not go around in life looking like Arnold Rothstein but I do appreciate his attempt at continuity because the real Stuhlbarg is not as creepy.

    Finally Reid Scott…sigh. Don’t care about his tux, it’s standard, but to go from the sweet and lovely young oncologist on The Big C to the douchebag di tutti douchebag Dan on Veep was the most pleasant surprise.  Plus, gorgeous.

  • Call me Bee

    TLo says, “Do NOT like colored shirts with tuxes.”  You are lucky you didn’t go to prom in 1971.  🙂 

  • that “custom” tux looks as standard and boring as they come. and evan peters, please marry me.

  • H3ff

    Fuck – Jon Hamm
    Marry – Jon Hamm
    Kill – Mario Lopez


  • I just realized what a well-trained BK I am of the TLo cult because all I could think for the majority of these pics was, “GET YOUR GODDAMN HAND OUT OF YOUR POCKET, YOU RAPSCALLIONS”. It ruined the look in every shot – all I could stare at was their gut showing below the jacket button.

    Also, is it just me or did Matthew Perry come straight from a swim while wearing his tuxedo? Sheesh.

  • Le_Sigh

    Peter Dinklage always manages to turn it out with his clothes – I thought it was a good costuming thing from his stint on 30 Rock – but I saw him in person at a karaoke bar a few years ago and everything was fitted perfectly to a T.

    Vincent looks like he showered for once.

    Did Eric Stonestreet drop 20 lbs?  He looks great!
