It was a close call, but most of you say that you embrace your freckles. Lots of stars are peppered with these sweet spots, and I've got photos to prove that freckles have a certain kind of magnetic charm.
Neil Patrick Harris was the star of the night at yesterday's Primetime Emmy Awards. He hosted the long show and managed to keep things interesting with his constant jokes and hours of preparation looking up the tiniest, most obscure roles on all the presenters' resumes to introduce them with. Check out all the winners here. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester looked gorgeous together as they took the stage to hand out an Emmy, though their show might not ever be up for any. Jessica Lange beat out her costar Drew Barrymore but the close friends looked overjoyed and the night's cutest acceptance speech might just go to a teary Kristin Chenoweth.
Justin Timberlake was all over the awards with his multiple nominations, though he didn't take any home he did win an Emmy last weekend. Heidi Klum and Seal shared a kiss in the audience, which is a lot less stressful than where she was last year up on stage as one of the hosts. Mad Men and 30 Rock took home the awards for best Drama and Comedy series respectively, but Jon Hamm and Tina Fey didn't win Actor or Actress. While the show was up against some tough competition with Sunday Night Football, NPH did a great job keeping the awards fun, funny and livelier than they've been in years.
We already had one look at all the gorgeous ladies on the Emmys red carpet, but many of the other ensembles were also amazing. Heidi Klum kicked things off in a dress that perfectly showcased her growing baby bump, while Tina Fey picked out a number in similar black. Leighton Meester was quite a contrast in white, looking pretty with her red lips. Ginnifer Goodwin and Mila Kunis, meanwhile, added color to the carpet with their purplish frocks. Make sure to check in with Fab, Bella and CelebStyle who are all still covering all the fashion and beauty from the big night!
Grey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson looked adorably happy on the red carpet of the Emmys. She should, since she's nominated twice tonight: first for her role on Grey's and also for her role in Accidental Friendship. Her (potentially) winning glow is coming through her luminous makeup, which highlights her gorgeous freckles and stunning smile. Additionally, she wore her eyeshadow dark — to complement her black dress — and her hair big. I think it all works for Chandra. Are you digging this style, or is a little too Grey for your taste?

The last thing I was expecting from Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes when a bunch of reporters descended on the Private Practice set on Tuesday was a spoiler. But she must have been feeling generous toward the TCA crowd, because we didn't even have to work for our news: Dr. Miranda Bailey of Seattle Grace (the Emmy-nominated Chandra Wilson) will be guest-starring on the third episode of Private Practice's third season.
I suppose it would be too much to ask, though, for Rhimes to reveal exactly why the crossover takes place. The most we could get was that she'll be "performing a very interesting medical procedure" and "will have her own comments about what's going on" over at Oceanside Wellness. I like the sound of that second idea: I think the Southern California doctors could use a patented Bailey smackdown every now and then.
The Bailey visit wasn't the only thing I learned on the set. What follows is spoilery, but if you want to hear details of Violet's fate after that freaky season finale and what's up next for Addison's romantic life, just read more
Chandra Wilson and Jim Parsons were up early this morning in LA to announce the 2009 Primetime Emmy Nominations, and they happily received nominations of their own! 30 Rock scored the most with 22 nods, including Best Comedy Series, Best Actor, and Best Actress. Mad Men was also popular again this year with 16 noms in categories such as Best Drama Series, Best Actor, and Best Actress. Drew Barrymore's hard work for Grey Gardens paid off — both she and Jessica Lange are going up against each other for Best Lead Actress, and the HBO movie brought in 17 nominations.
American Idol and Project Runway got recognized for Best Reality-Competition Program with nods to their hosts, Ryan Seacrest and Heidi Klum. Extra nominees were added to many major categories this year, giving even more people a chance to celebrate. Even so, Grey's Anatomy only got Supporting Actress nods for Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson, while fan favorite True Blood was overlooked entirely. Check out the full list of nominees here as we get excited for the Neil Patrick Harris-hosted show on Sept. 20!

Neil Patrick Harris donned a shiny tux and a big smile, hosting the Tony Awards last night at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. Broadway veteran John Stamos and newcomer Anne Hathaway were among the stars who stepped out to present awards. Dolly Parton, Stockard Channing and Elton John took the stage, as well as Bret Michaels who injured himself during the big opening number. Liza Minnelli beat out Will Ferrell's George Bush impersonation for Best Special Theatrical Event — see all the winners here — but Will didn't seem to mind as he and the rest of the audience enjoyed a night filled with music and laughter.
The 100th episode of Grey's Anatomy has all the elements of a classic: there's a big tragedy that brings a lot of the doctors together, a few sweeping speeches, and a wedding that makes me cry despite lots of lapses of logic. It's not my favorite Grey's of the season, but if a measure of a good episode is whether I was a weepy mess by the end, then "What a Difference a Day Makes" is certainly good. Ready to talk about it?

Interview With Chandra Wilson: Star Talks Child Safety We know and love her as the no nonsense Dr. Bailey on Grey's, but in real life Chandra is a working mother of three just trying to get it right. The actress signed on as the spokesperson for OTCsafety.org's campaign to educate fellow parents on the safe use of over-the-counter cough and cold medications. Lil had the opportunity to chat with the celebmama — check out what she had to say!
