These people aren’t ‘losers’ per se, that’s awful to say that they are. But who had the most heartwrenching ‘losing’ face at this year’s Emmys? We had some great shots of these faces, from Bomer’s puppy dog eyes and quivering lip, to Gervais’ embarrassing grin, from Ryan Murphy’s stone cold stare of disbelief to Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s inner explosion.August 27, 2014 at 12:06 pm #330368
Gotta be Matt Bomer. To have everyone saying you’re a lock and to have put everything into your performance and then to not win… he was crushed. And it felt wrong.August 27, 2014 at 12:11 pm #330369
I gotta say it pisses me off when stars who were nominated with co-stars win and don’t acknowledge them in their acceptance speech. I know it’s hard to remember everything, but would it have been so hard for Ty Burrell to mention Jesse Tyler Ferguson, or for Kathy Bates to mention Bassett and Conroy? Just gets my goat. None of these co-nominees seemed particularly glad that their co-stars won for that matter.
But back to the point, I agree that Bomer’s was by far the most dramatic face.August 27, 2014 at 12:24 pm #330370
Ryan Murphy. It was like a knife piercing his heart again….and again….and again. Category by category. One after the other.
The best one though goes to Robin Wright. She didn’t even try the fake grin-smile. Girl was COLD.August 27, 2014 at 12:27 pm #330371
Bomer’s was definitely heartbreaking, but take note of everyone else nominated around him. All of Bomer’s co-stars (especially Alfred Molina) look surprised, and Colin Hanks looks floored (maybe even he knew this was supposed to be Bomer’s). What a headscratcher…August 27, 2014 at 12:27 pm #330372
Shit, I forgot about her. Yeah, that was also pretty bad. I’m surprised that Gervais didn’t look cooler when Parsons won. Gold Derby really sold him a lemon on that one. Jeez. Louis CK’s reaction to Parsons winning was lovely, I thought, really genuine. Same goes for Melissa McCarthy and Amy Poehler’s genuine reactions to JLD’s win. Pooooooooor Amy though 🙁August 27, 2014 at 12:31 pm #330374
What’s Tyson doing? Do you think she’s pissed, or did she even hear correctly? My guess is she hadn’t a clue that she was the frontrunner. I’m sure she’s never even heard of a computer, never mind Gold Derby.
Minnie Driver – very rehearsed, I like it
My girl Wiig 🙁
Sarah Paulson – GOLDEN lol. What a Lange fangirl.August 27, 2014 at 12:32 pm #330375
Poor Matt Bomer. He’s probably never going to be this close again.

I think Wiig was just still just laughing at the fact that she was in this category. Not that she wasn’t deserving but just to imagine being a comedic performance next to Cicely Tyson and Jessica Lange she was just there for the ride. Ryan Murphy was my vote because I think this is the project he is most proud of.August 27, 2014 at 12:36 pm #330377
Wiig joked on the red carpet at her inclusion in that category, so yeah, she seemed to have a good light hearted opinion on the whole thing. She’ll get her due, in time. She’ll probably win for writing a variety special like Sarah Silverman, or maybe if she writes/stars in a sitcom down the line, she’ll win lead actress or writing for that. She needs a 30 Rock vehicle for sure.August 27, 2014 at 1:02 pm #330378
No contest here. Roberts by far. She was the one who had the small praise video then a humiliation itself by the actual results.August 27, 2014 at 1:02 pm #330379

That was my favorite line-up of reactions with all 4 “The Normal Heart” guys looking pretty pissed one way or another and then Colin Hanks, I think, was just realizing that it’s Martin Freeman, his “Fargo” co-star, winning for “Sherlock” when barely anybody was talking about him in this particular category. I’d like to see 3-4 seconds more of Hanks.
Kathy Bates’s win was my 2nd favorite when it comes to reactions – so many interesting things there. Ellen Burstyn challenged her “Glenda Jackson… what a surprise” Oscar moment.August 27, 2014 at 1:09 pm #330380

pretty sure her ego (along with a couple of , as witnessed by her presenting Drama actor) cured that “humiliation” right up.August 27, 2014 at 1:10 pm #330381

You just never know. She didn’t get any award for 10 years!
