Scandal At Saks Fifth Avenue

-------

Kerry WashingtonYesterday evening, Saks Fifth Avenue threw a party celebrating the third season of the hit show Scandal and also unveiled window displays modeled after Kerry Washington’s character, Olivia Pope. Apparently the actress and Scandal‘s costume designer, Lyn Paolo, were up late Tuesday night adding some finishing touches to the windows. “My flight landed in New York at 1 a.m., and I hopped in the car and told my driver, ‘Take me to Saks!’” Washington told Style.com. “It’s closed,’ he told me, and I said, ‘I know, but we need to go there right now!’ We were running all over Fifth Avenue comparing our window to other windows.” Although they admitted the Saks visuals team was phenomenal, both Washington and Paolo said they just had a much more particular vision of how Pope dresses, hence the middle-of-the-night switcheroo.

It was an anecdote that the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, found particularly humorous, although she confessed that she’s not quite as type A as Washington and Paolo when it comes to fashion sense. “I’m a person who would be wearing pajamas every day if you let me. I knew when we were doing Washington, D.C., that I wanted to make [the city] a bit more fashionable than it actually is. That’s why I hired Lyn—she is just so good at what she does.”

Scandal, Horror, and Lots of Dirty Politicians Take the 2013 Emmy Nominations

-------

Kerry Washington at the 2012 Emmy AwardsAfter hearing this morning’s announcement of the 2013 Emmy nominations, it seems that little has changed in TV land since 2012. After a somewhat controversial second season, Girls is still going strong, and the ever-trendy Game of Thrones, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, and Louie all earned mentions, too. Unsurprisingly, Emmy veterans Mad Men, Downton Abbey, and Homeland were all nominated once (or twice, or five times) again. Other notable nods went to funny women Jane Lynch for Glee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep, and Amy Poehler for Parks and Recreation.

Newcomers included juicy dramas Scandal and Nashville, but the only real surprise was the Netflix series House of Cards. The political saga earned nine nominations, including Best Drama Series, and marks the first time the Emmys have included an online-only program.

In terms of quantity, American Horror Story: Asylum tops the list with nominations in seventeen categories. But the more-is-more game has a few other players: Saturday Night Live earned a hearty fifteen nominations, as did HBO’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra. The film’s Michael Douglas and Matt Damon were each nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie, and Steven Soderbergh is up for Best Director. Of course, we’ll be keeping our eyes on the red carpet to see what stars like Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominee Kerry Washington (left), Tina Fey, Claire Danes, and Kiernan Shipka don to the awards on September 22, and we’re also eager to hear who takes the win for best costumes—crowd favorites like Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, and Downton Abbey are all vying for the prize. See a list of the big nominees, below.
