She looks polished, poised and ready to pick up an award. That she didn’t manage the latter is beside the point. With major awards shows, half the battle is showing up looking like someone who deserved the nomination in the first place. And if you can manage that while not looking generic, why, it almost doesn’t matter that you didn’t win.

Not that we expect Miss Ellie to agree with us on that last point, but you’re a winner to us, darling!

Also: the longer we look at it, the more we think that dress is really tough to pull off, between the color and the potentially enthickening waist. She’s killing it and we don’t think a lot of ladies with her coloring could.
