Best-Dressed Picks at the 2015 Emmy Awards
It’s universally acknowledged Hollywood is experiencing another golden age in television. Ironically, in an era where there is less time to sit and watch television, with ever-increasing distractions competing for our attention, there are now more TV shows on air than ever – more than 400 scripted shows.
Which is good for award shows like last night’s 67th Primetime Emmys. More quality shows, hopefully means a broader array of stars in terms of age, gender and ethnic backgrounds and also a breakdown of barriers in the kinds of stories being told.
This year’s Emmy saw history being made as a black actress finally took home the prestigious award for best actress in a drama series as the 50-year-old Viola Davis did for her work in ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder.
This year also saw a bevy of seasoned pros – well beyond retirement age in youth-obsessed Hollywood – showing up on the small screen. Not just male actors but legendary actresses like Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange and Christine Baranski are proving to still be in demand.
While many in the industry might consider these ladies way past their prime for prime-time television, they not only looked smashing but proved age truly is just a number.
