Emmy Countdown: Fans wait to see stars
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Those who glide down the Emmy Awards’ red carpet are in designer dresses, designer jewelry and designer shoes, or tuxedos.
But in the bleachers, it’s a different story. There, the dress code is flip flops, shorts and sun screen.
Lucky fans with bleachers’ tickets checked in near the Nokia Theatre at 10 a.m. PDT Sunday, to wait it out in the hot southern California sun until the stars come out.
“He’s so great,” Brown squealed. “It’s so nice that he appreciates his fans.”
“He took the time for us even though he’s got a big job to do tonight,” Banfield said.
Fallon posted a video on Twitter of himself backstage preparing for the show.
“I’m so excited,” said Fallon, while gripping his hair anxiously.
Conan O’Brien, also posted on Twitter:
“Hey gang! I’m off to The Emmys on NBC! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Meanwhile, back at the bleachers.
It’s been a tradition for four years running for five friends from Melbourne, Fla., to take a girls-only vacation, stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel and cheer for their favorite actors at the Emmys.
This year, they came in matching pink tank tops emblazoned with rhinestones that said “Emmys 2010” and white shorts.
Laura Pitten, 49, an attorney, had a sign that said “Love the Dress” on one side and “Wow, You’re Hot” on the other side. “This side is for the girls and this side is for the good-looking guys,” she said.
