Highlights from the 2011 Primetime Emmys

Jane Lynch demonstrated her live performance chops at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards last night.

Though the opening musical number was a bit of a cringe-fest, Ms. Lynch gave the show a fun, spunky quality that kept me entertained throughout.

Here are some of the highlights of the evening:

Prettiest in Pink:

Zooey Deschanel. Love!

I adore this actress and am madly in love with this dress.

Side note: does anyone else think she looks just like Katy Perry? Well minus a few cup sizes.

Most in Need of a Donut:

Julie Bowen.

Put down the weights, Julie, and eat a donut. Oh, and congratulations, you totally deserved this win. You make me feel much better about my own manic mom moments.

Hottest Presenting Pair Ever in the History of the World:

Rob Lowe and Sofia Vergarra.

These two fine specimens might just be the two most beautiful people in the world. And her dress? Gorgeous!

Most Ballsy Moment:

Charlie Sheen’s apology to the cast & crew of Two and Half Men.

He looked awkward, because it WAS awkward, but I think it was from his heart and very genuine.

Worst Hair:

Ashton Kutcher.

Jesus called and wants his hair back.
