Creative Arts Emmy Awards

After the memorial service Saturday, we went to LA Live for lunch (entertainment complex under construction in downtown Los Angeles, California. Adjacent to the Staples Center). It just happened that the guests for the Creative Arts Emmys awards were walking down the red carpet right in front of the restaurant to get into the Nokia Theater. Nicknamed the Shmemmies, these Emmy awards are presented in recognition of technical and other similar achievements in American television programming and are commonly awarded to behind-the-scenes personnel such as art directors, costume designers, cinematographers, casting directors, and sound editors. The event is annually held one week prior to the Primetime Emmy Awards. I've actually never heard of it before, but it was fun to see all the hundreds of paparazzi and extravagant dresses. We didn't see anyone super-duper exciting but we did see Ernest Borgnine (He’s 92!), Betty White, Lisa Edelstein from ‘House’ (have never seen the show so didn't mean anything to me), Sharon Osbourne (Chad got his picture taken with her, but my camera died - figures - so another firefighter is supposed to email it to us), Donald Faison (Scrubs, don't watch this show either), Kathryn Morris (Cold Case)

Callie Thorne ('Rescue Me')

Katey Sagal from Married with Childred

I don't know who these two guys were, but I loved thier outfits.

Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer! And he brought 'Junior' a pit bull with him.

Junior with a ball in his mouth.

A fine example of the interesting outfits. I was actually taking a picture of the guy behind her. He is Thatcher, Meredith's father on Grey's Anatomy (Jeff Perry).

Yes that is a real dog, and it is wearing sunglasses!
