Went to the Emmys

So I got to go to the Emmys last weekend.
It was fun.
Here I took a picture of myself on the red carpet in the shadow of the giant Emmy statue.
This is what it looked like inside the Governor's Ball.
The colors reminded of the "It's a Small World" ride.
Suddenly I found myself alone with Michael's Emmy.
But just as I made my move Burky appeared out of the darkness.

Also... and I'm not sure how this happened.
But over the course of the evening I lost all three buttons on my jacket.
See here's me at the beginning on the red carpet.
Clearly there are buttons.

And here is me riding back to the hotel and not a single button on the jacket anymore.
Mysterious.

congratulations to michael emerson for his win :)

i can't believe this is going to be the last season. if you don't win something next year, there's obviously some sort of conspiracy afoot.

groovymom said...

Loving the colors!! Hope you had a fantastic time!

Looking forward to the final season in a bitter-sweet kind of way!

Callahan said...

I hope Lost and you win something next year.

And congratulations to Michael Emerson, he's good :)

Bye!

You & Beth looked super all glamed up! Hope you had fun.
Give M.E. a big bear hug for me. I'm so glad Lost got a win!

Ukulele Lady said...

That is mysterious.

Was so great that Emerson won. You deserve an Emmy too for your fantastic work!

Buttons are over-rated. That's why I wear a zippered tux to all the award shows.

Kacie said...

your posts never fail to crack me up. You are so naturally funny, you don't even have to try.

James Hernandez said...

Miss Scarlett said...

Did you see how many buttons Burky had at the end of the evening??

Suzie-Q said...

Watch ebay. Maybe your buttons will show up.

Ralph- said...

did you look up that giant Emmy's dress?

I think that Burke dude cut off your buttons!!

gdahimself said...

You're dressed nicely but with those sideburns, you look like you should be in a 19th century period piece

Russell said...

Sorry 'bout that. But it turns out one celebrity tuxedo button can go for as much as $5 American dollars on Ebay. And now I own season 1 of Lost from Half.com.

Athena said...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Love the blog, love to read of your adventures --

Laura said...

You look great, Jorge! It looks like you had a blast.

I was so happy Michael Emerson finally won his Emmy for Lost.

Did you two get any pics together? I'd love to see them!

mmariona said...

I watched the Emmy's for the first time in years. I was excited that Michael Emerson won. I am a huge LOST fan.

My daughter, Maria, was on set the last couple of days. She was one of the "Others Child" She had a blast. So many memories and stories she now has!

Movie Star Wife said...

Come on, Jorge. We all know where the buttons went. It was all of the crazy fan girls that couldn't keep their hands off of you.

I don't know which is funnier...the "LoST" buttons, or you LiBeRaTiNG Michael's eMMY.

You'Re a FuNNY GuY! You MaKe Me LauGH...I'm just sayin...

Ian said...

You really deserved a nomination for season 4 in my opinion, that being the season in which you gave your most emotional and heartfelt performance.

Lost Dbutz said...

Nice pics Jorge, and I hope you get an Emmy next year. Something tells me you're going to get a chance to do some great work this season. I think you did a great job in the scene where you had to mourn Charlie in Season 4, shoulda got an Emmy for that. The last pic looks like you may have had a few, way to party it up dude. And you even lost your buttons! LOL!

Kristin said...

so sorry you lost your buttons. it had to be the work of the devil(s).

Lisa said...

So handsome! You and Emmy are meant to be. We were happy to see you but we thought that red carpet lady was kinda rude to you and Yunjin.

Also- can't they think of anything to ask you besides "What's going to happen?"

MareHare said...

You looked very handsome at the Emmy's. I saw you with Carrie Ann on the t.v. guide interview. That was ridiculously rushed and I must say I was a little bummed that she didn't give you more time. The buttons were on then but where was Beth?!

LOST better win best drama next year!!!!!

Paul Spooner said...

Thanks for keeping us in the loop. I'm not trying to be lame or anything, but you really are a fan-fueled actor. You recognize the people that admire your work and invite them in to enjoy the little things (and the big Emmy things) of your life. So thanks, sorry if this is a bit deep, but thanks. You're pretty great.

Dr Mum said...

Your an arty geezer.
I bet you could make some cool buttons yourself....

Hamida said...

Mírale que guapetón y sonriente ;P

Julia Smith said...

The button comments are hilarious.

Just discovered your blog through someone's blog list feed. Glad I popped over.

corofin said...

What lies in the shadow of the Emmy Statue?

wharfrat said...

AH. So that's where you have been. Partying in LA. With all those LA people.
We missed you, the island missed you. Welcome back....

And tell Michael... congrats on his win. Like he said, he got the role of a lifetime. And so did you I think.

Enjoy the islands for the rest of the time you are here. ALoha.

nollyposh said...

Lol! X;-)

nollyposh said...

Oh and (Ps) Congrats to Michael (He's fab!) But just for the record i think you deserve one too!

Christina Bauer said...

Wow, lookin' good, Jorge! Such a cutie you are!

I see a mini web series: the case of the lost buttons...dun, dun, dunnnnnnnn

[*Sanwaxa*] said...

Where are the buttons?? Island's fault... xDDD

Thanks for showing those photos, they're... they are... ummm curious xD

Congratulations to Michael!! =)

-SAS- said...

Guapísimo! felicidades para Michael, se lo merece.

Checkie said...

I can't believe you took a picture of yourself in the shadow of the statue. Most actors I've read about seem to shy away from their characters in real life and keep the two worlds seperate, but you seem to embrace your characters as much as we fans do. That, to me, makes you one of the coolest dudes in the business.

Michelle said...

lookin good in a tux! saw you on Curb your Enthusiasm repeats recently, wicked funny
