Julianne Hough
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

This week we got a treat: The Emmys. That means plenty of fail to go around! Julianne Hough is a beautiful woman - but no one is mistaking her dress, which features a see-through portion to show off some granny panties, as beautiful.

A very daring cut for Claire Danes at The Emmys, but her light skin and the color of her dress offers no contrast and looks very plain. Plus, it has that lacy doily look.

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions: Who Are The Favorites To Win?

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions
?

It’s been a while since we’ve had such a wild card Emmy season. Last year, Homeland was all but a lock in each of its major categories, but after a shaky second season, some strong competition from other long-running shows, and a buzzworthy new Netflix series, things are really up in the air pretty much all over the place. Still, I’ll do my best to make some predictions in the big categories. Just remember: This year, pretty much anything goes.

Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones

House of Cards

Homeland
Actress Claire Danes braved security concerns to shoot Emmy Award-winning series Homeland in Israel.

The cast and crew of the hit drama normally shoot in North Carolina, but they filmed several episode of the the show's first season in the Middle East, where the TV series Prisoners of War - which inspired Homeland - was based.

Claire Danes walked away from the chance to reteam with her Romeo + Juliet co-star Leonardo DiCaprio for last year's J. Edgar to take the lead in TV smash Homeland.

The actress auditioned for the role of secretary Helen Gandy in the movie about former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover on the same weekend she was offered the opportunity to star as CIA officer Carrie Mathison - and she opted for the TV drama because the part was so "compelling".

Danes has signed up for seven seasons of Homeland and is convinced she made the right decision about the roles.

The 11 Best From 2011

2011 was a fantastic year for entertainment. Here are my eleven favorite things from the year that's about to wrap, in chronological order...

1. Southland, TNT

(Season 3 began January 4)

I have to admit that I didn't keep up with TNT's gritty Los Angeles cop drama as much as I would have liked; it fell victim to sharing Tuesday nights with three other shows on my watch list. Yet when I did find time to catch it, I was no less than impressed every time.

There's been talk about the show's TV-MA content (allegedly the reason that NBC axed it), but the real talking point should be the st...
