Something tells me things are about to get a little competitive in the Lambert-Shelton household. Both Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were nominated for Entertainer of the Year this morning when the nominees were announced for the 48th Annual CMA Awards! Hopefully Blake and Miranda can keep the competition friendly ;). They’re both so accomplished already, I’m sure they can. Keith Urban was also nominated for Entertainer of the Year, so I’m sure we’ll see Nicole Kidman at the CMAs to offer support. Check out the entire nominee list below. The 48th Annual CMAs will air live from Nashville on November 5 on ABC. RELATED: Both Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton win big at the 2014 CMT Music Awards!
Is it just me or does it seem like the jewelry trend for the past few years at celebrity awards shows has been to tone down the bling? We just don’t seem to hear about celebs wearing jewelry worth six or seven figures and having bodyguards shadow them just to make sure the jewels aren’t stolen. That doesn’t mean celebs are going bare, however! Celebs such as Christina Hendricks, Michelle Dockery, Lucy Liu and Kelly Osbourne wore gold pieces from LoveGold.com. Meanwhile, Taylor Schilling, Zooey Deschanel, Allison Tolman, Giuliana Rancic, and Chelsea Peretti dressed in Forevermark Diamonds at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. ‘Orange is the New Black’ star Laura Prepon wore jewelry from Simon G. Jewelry. RELATED: 2014 Emmy Awards red carpet pics!
You have to admit one thing about ‘Girls’ creator and star Lena Dunham: she is NEVER boring on the red carpet. Here was her look for the 66th Annual Primetime Emmys. Lena set the record straight on her new hair color and style, too. RELATED: ‘Girls’ creator Lena Dunham changes it up with her hair.
Has motherhood changed Kerry Washington? The ‘Scandal’ star is known for being super private; she didn’t even acknowledge the birth of her daughter, Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha. On the red carpet at the 2014 Emmys, however, Kerry sounds like she was practically gushing (not to mention posting her red carpet pics on twitter). So sweet!

What did Kaley Cuoco do after she got all dolled up but before she left the house for the 2014 Emmys? She chowed down! Look at her enjoying some McDonalds- LOL. Actually, I completely get it. The awards ceremony is probably long, and unlike the Golden Globes, they don’t serve dinner. And at this point she can splurge since she’s already in her dress.

The actresses are always much more, well, sedate, than the singers, so it’s no surprise that the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet didn’t have the fashion risks we saw at the 2014 MTV VMAs. Yet what was similar to the VMAs was that there was no clear red carpet trend, either. Everyone went with their own style. It’s fun to see the ‘Orange is the New Black’ ladies outside of their prison garb! We have TONS of pics from the red carpet after the break. RELATED: Emmy host Seth Meyers is on fire for GQ.
For those of you who like awards shows, the last two days have been Christmas in August! The 66th Annual Primetime Emmys were held last night (on a Monday, to get out of the way of MTV’s VMAs on Sunday night). ‘Breaking Bad’ was honored in its final year (including wins for all of its lead actors: Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Anna Gunn!), and ‘Modern’ Family again took home the statuette for best comedy. What did you think of Seth Meyers as the host? I liked him! What did you think of the winners? As much as I love Julianna Marguiles, I think it’s time for ‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington to be recognized. Share your thoughts in the comments. Take a look at the complete winners list (and check out some press room pics) after the break! RELATED: 2014 Primetime Emmy nominees announced!
