Fashion wasn't the only hot topic on the red carpet at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.
From Claire Danes talking about being a new mom to Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepting a 52nd birthday present, nothing was off limits.
Danes – who welcomed son Cyrus with husband Hugh Dancy in December – looked flawless in a red Versace gown, but beamed most when speaking about her new addition (upstairs at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with his grandparents). "I've been in baby world," she told Ryan Seacrest. "I'm hoping I don't leak!"

Jimmy Kimmel joked that, during commercials, the Emmys looked like this: "all your favorite TV stars all in one room, checking their phones and ignoring each other."
But the picture was much different – and a whole lot more fun – after the show.
The official HBO Emmy After Party, held at the Pacific Design Center Sunday night, played host to many happy nominees, including lead actress in a drama series winner Claire Danes.

For some reason I started Emmy night worrying that Hugh Bonneville of PBS Masterpiece's Downton Abbey would win best actor in a drama, or that there'd be a Downton sweep. He gives a perfectly lovely performance, but it's essentially like watching Piers Morgan mellowed by a life of having valets brush his evening jacket.
But Damian Lewis won for Homeland, allowing my head to clear and track what I thought the Emmys got right and got wrong.
Got right: Homeland, Showtime.
Mad Men and Breaking Bad both had tremendous seasons, but neither was as brilliantly focused right out of the gate as this new political thriller. It was fitting, too, that the acting awards went to both Lewis and Claire Danes: They're a sort of Janus head – two faces, terrorist and counter-terrorist, each collapsing under the pressure of a duty to protect (hers) and destroy (his).

If you ask why I am crying, it's because Madeleine Stowe, star of ABC's Revenge, is not among the Emmy nominees. In fact, I am crying just as she would: My eyes are ringed with big, ready-to-drop tears of wrath and sorrow.
Otherwise, the latest batch of nominees is pretty satisfying.
It's great to see Lena Dunham and her fantastic HBO comedy Girls up for best actress and show. (But nothing for the supporting cast?) Dunham, who plays a smart, funny, self-absorbed young writer, is running against her comic antithesis: Zooey Deschanel of FOX's New Girl, on which she plays (and plays very well) a cupcake.

Only the accountants at Ernst & Young – the official vote-counters for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences – know who will take home an Emmy during Sunday's ceremony.
Until then it's anyone's guess. But we can tell you which Emmy nominees are getting the most buzz among 170.89 million Facebook users in the U.S.
Based on the number of "Likes" and the number of mentions on the social networking site, it seems Sofia Vergara is a fan favorite. The Modern Family star leads over Kristen Wiig, Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Merritt Wever and Kathryn Joosten for the supporting comedy actress category.

I am trying to imagine a marble bust of Julia Louis-Dreyfus. This bust rests atop a marble pedestal, and the pedestal sits in a gleaming marble hall.
Can't do it. The hair is too chic, for one thing, and that's hard to sculpt. So, I'll spell it out: Veep, the new HBO comedy in which Louis-Dreyfus plays a vice president of very little brain, puts her firmly in the pantheon of TV's great comedic actresses.
Yes, yes, yes, Louis-Dreyfus already proved she was fantastic playing Seinfeld's Elaine, the woman who invented the urban sombrero. But that was an ensemble role. And she was lovely, relaxed and charming as a divorced mom on her mellow sitcom vehicle The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Ian Abercrombie, the British character actor who found fame later in life by playing Elaine's boss Mr. Pitt on Seinfeld, has died at 77.
Abercrombie passed away Thursday of complications from kidney failure, having been diagnosed with lymphoma, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Having started his career as a dancer, Abercrombie spent four decades acting on the stage, screen and TV, before his seven episodes on Seinfeld changed his life.

No matter how faithfully you follow your diet, there's always one food that makes you weak. The New Adventures of Old Christine star Julia Louis-Dreyfus confessed to Shape that she'll break her diet for bacon. "In fact, I don't keep bacon in my house – that would be way too tempting," she said. Do you crumble for chocolate? Are milkshakes your mortal enemy? What's your weakness? Tell us below in the comments!

More soup for her!
Following in the footsteps of the successful Sex and the City movie, Julia Louise-Dreyfus says she'd love to reprise her role as Seinfeld's Elaine and do a film version of the hit 90's sitcom.
"You get the financing together and I'll work on the script," Louis-Dreyfus told reporters at the 7th Annual TV Land awards on Sunday, set to air April 26.
Until then, Louis-Dreyfus, 48, is happy to reunite with her Seinfeld cast mates for several episodes in the upcoming season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm this fall.
"It was wonderful," she says, of working with Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards again. "It was like we never left to be honest with you – so that part of it was quite surreal."
