Oh No You Didn't! 5 Outrageous Red Carpet Moments From Past Emmys
It's time to roll out the red carpet (literally!) for the Primetime Emmy Awards. But if this year's red carpet is anything like the past, some stars will need to have thick skin under those designer duds. Past Emmys red carpets have included everything from kisses to disses. Check out these buzzworthy red carpet moments of the past.
1. Kathy Griffin overwhelms Ryan Seacrest
At the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards in 2011, comedian Kathy Griffin moved in for the kiss and made the moves on E! News host Ryan Seacrest. Griffin first asked Seacrest if he was "still banging the dancer." (That'd be Seacrest's ex, pro dancer Julianne Hough.)
After the comedian doled out a few more digs about his love life, Seacrest changed the topic to Griffin's makeup, saying her lips looked "very, very red." Then he asked her, "Have you left a mark on anyone?"
Bad line of questioning, Seacrest! Griffin used the inquiry as a cue to go for a sloppy lip lock.
"Oh, gosh," Seacrest said as she leaned in for a big, red smooch. "I don't really want this tape to exist." (But it does, Seacrest, it does!)
"The Good Wife" star Julianna Margulies played the good Emmy nominee and lent Seacrest a hand by wiping the Kathy off of his teeth. (Luckily she came by just in time with a hanky in hand to remove the red stains.)
The next year, makeup came into play again when Griffin paused on the red carpet and asked Seacrest to touch up her lip liner to make her lips "more plumpy." Instead, the E! host drew on her face with the lip liner. She got him back by drawing a mustache on him while chanting, "You are evil! Evil!"
2. Sarah Hyland gets busted by Giuliana Rancic
In 2011, "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland mocked rival comedy series star, Lea Michele. When Hyland stopped by E!'s Fashion Police, she joked about the way the "Glee" star strikes a pouty pose on the carpet, doing an impression as she said, "It's just like, she puts her hands on her hips like this and like sticks out her collarbones — I don't know if you can see — she sticks out her collarbones to make her look skinnier and she sticks out her lips."
So, the next night on the Emmy carpet, Giuliana Rancic did what any good host would do: She called Hyland out for upsetting the Gleeks.
