To say yesterday's Critic's Choice TV Awards was full of movers and shakers is something of an understatement. Busy Philips doing the Charleston; Jon Hamm dancing like an uncle (I don't like the beard, Jon. You can throw all the looks you want, still manky); Elijah Woodjust doing what comesnaturally; it was all happening.
We'll get to the winners in a jiffy, but before that, let's just give a nod to those who got it right and those who got dressed in the dark.
Knockouts at the luncheon include Katey Sagal; Christina Hendricks (nice to see her breasticles not stealing the show for once); Zooey Deschanel; Judy Greer and - at a stretch - Jayma Mays and Courtney Cox.
Those letting themselves down terribly were Patricia Heaton (resembling a raisin in a toupee); Jenna Elfman (one pantsuit away from becoming a Jane Lynch parody); Martha Plimpton (self explanatory); Alan Cumming (ditto); Kaley Cuocu (a palazzo overload); RuPaul (gone with the wigs, in with the golf loving Snoop Dog) and Danny DeVito (true, they're formal Crocs, but their Crocs all the same).
Lastly, a word for Sam Trammell: "Swoon".
