Our very own Priyanka Chopra carrying her red-blooded woman persona to the red carpet in a flowy scarlet gown presented an award at the 68th Emmy Awards, even as Game of Thrones again proved that it owns the show with 12 trophies to its name.
Priyanka presented the award to Susanne Bier along with Tom Hiddleston. Bier was awarded for directing a limited series, movie or a dramatic special for The Night Manager. The Quantico star looked resplendent in a one-shouldered Jason Wu gown, finishing it out with a sleek side-parted ponytail.
Wearing a one-shouldered Jason Wu number, featuring a waist-cinching belt and cutouts, the actress kept the finishing touches rather minimal. A bold red pout, a low ponytail and a pair of solitaires shone from her ears. Not long ago, the actress had been spotted sporting a bright Jason Wu number at the Accessories Council Excellence Awards and recently, PeeCee was seen in Jason Wu again while attending a bash thrown by Hugo Boss at the New York Fashion Week.
Though going red on the red carpet is a classic move, courtesy the colour clash, it’s also the easiest to go wrong with, nevertheless Priyanka Chopra emerged as a clear winner on the red carpet.
Egyptian-American Rami Malek took home his first Emmy for best drama actor for playing a socially inept computer hacker in “Mr. Robot,” while Canadian Tatiana Maslany was a surprise winner for playing a woman with multiple cloned personalities in “Orphan Black.”
“Game of Thrones,” which went into Sunday’s show with a leading 23 nominations, won a total of 12 Emmys, including for directing and writing.
True crime also made its mark. “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” FX’s 10-hour dramatization of the former football player’s 1995 double murder trial and sensational acquittal won nine Emmys, including for best limited series, writing, for lead actors Sarah Paulson and Courtney B. Vance and supporting actor Sterling K. Brown.
