Weird Red Carpet Sightings At 36th Annual Daytime Emmys

by Chiara Atik · August 31, 2009

If The Oscars are, say, Barbie, The Golden Globes are Skipper, and The Tony's are the slightly effeminate Ken, then The Daytime Emmy's are like...Barbie's weird cousin twice removed, that she is slightly embarrassed of. So what weird sightings could be spotted on the red carpet last night? Click below to find out...

Some stars definitely came out for the Emmys, including Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, Tyra Banks, Vanessa Williams who hosted (and made out onstage?), and Sandra Oh. Then, there were the stars that were probably very exciting to certain demographics: Betty White was there (to the delight of diehard Lifetime Television For Women fans), Dr.Phil (to the delight of conservative Middle America), and Alex Trebek (to the delight of my grandparents). The big win for New Yorkers? Besides Tyra and The View (both shot here in the city), CASH CAB was the big New York city recepient, with host Ben Bailey onhand to receive the honor. Other, more colorful additions to the red carpet included: Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, and a cat. (Yes, a real cat. See picture above.) Still, props to the Daytime Emmy's for keeping it interesting, something which the Oscars and the Tony's can no longer really say...
