The red carpet was full of bright colors at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards last night, but yellow was the most popular. "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen, winner of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, looked oustanding in a strapless canary yellow gown.

"Homeland" winner Claire Danes, who is several months pregnant, also opted for a strapless yellow dress that was (obviously) more loose fitting than Julie's.

"Game Change" winner Julianne Moore picked a more conservative yellow gown with long sleeves, a higher neckline and a billowing skirt.

Arjun Gupta as Sam and Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton in Nurse Jack
Jackie wakes up as Kevin is tiptoeing out of the room. He wanted to let her sleep, but he wants to get in some batting practice before the day starts. As she gets the kids ready for school, she watches Grace and Fiona take their vitamins, and her face, grim with craving, causes Grace to ask her mother if she wants a vitamin. “No thanks, sweetie. Those are for you.” says Jackie. But I think she’s thinking about Grace’s Xanax.

At the Batting Cage, Kevin is furiously swatting at the balls, with Eddie watching. Kevin tells Eddie that he can’t look at Jackie anymore. All of the unspoken things,...

Jackie is woken from sleep by Grace, who feels like her heart is racing. Over a 2 a.m. cup of cocoa, Grace shows Jackie and Kevin her collection of cards depicting ‘gruesome saints’ deaths,’ which her parents suspect may be causing the sleeplessness. Sipping from her “World’s Greatest Mom” mug, Jackie is pleased when Kevin tells her she’s a good mom.

The next morning, she slips out to score drugs at the East Bay Diner. The nasty drug dealer, Bill, is still charging her $200. per daily dose of 5 pills, though he claims he gave her 6. Leaving, she bumps into Sam, who asks if she’s a friend o...

A fight breaks out between two patrons, and Kevin brandishes a baseball bat to make them leave. Later that night, Jackie and Kevin gets amorous.

Next morning, Jackie is Google-ing various names for oxycontin. But when Kevin checks Jackie’s history, all he finds are searches for AA meetings and withdrawal symptoms. Later, Tunie tells J...

'Nurse Jackie' Season 3 Advance Review

Nurse Jackie's third season arrived on our TVs on Monday night. I saw the pilot when it premiered, but I've been saying that I'd go back to it and never did. Thanks for kicking me in the behind, Showtime! So let's take a look at how this season shapes up, shall we?

The one great pleasure for me with this show is its cast. It's safe to say that Edie Falco has officially broken typecasting with her Emmy-winning performance as Jackie Peyton, and I give her credit for making an insufferable character more likable than I would have thought. But the real joys for me are the names I've see...

Some interventions just don’t take. And addicts can twist the simplest fact into a pretzel. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that Jackie’s response to her husband Kevin’s interrogation about her pharmacy purchases was a litany of explanations and complaints that neatly explained away her guilt.

But no matter how glib her cover up, Jackie’s still got some ‘splaining to do. Let’s see – she’s addicted to pain killers, having an affair with a co-worker, is coping with a child with mental issues, has taken money from a rich co-worker/friend for her kid’s education even though the father doesn’t w...

It’s a transitional year for the Emmys, meaning this is one of the more exciting races in recent memories. The flood of new nominees (brought on by a stellar development slate) means that we can no longer rely on the predictable Emmy voting to determine winners. Instead, this is a year where we can see many newcomers emerging and starting a whole new slate of predictable nominees.

Yes, that was a little cynical, but it’s the sad truth of the Emmys – habits are hard to break for the voters. Luckily, this year the virgin nominees have afforded them an extensive choice for brand new habits.
