Making her way down the crowded purple carpet to the 71st Emmy Awards on September 22, This is Us star Mandy Moore was feeling honoured – and hot. “We’re here in the company of Game of Thrones and the best television that’s ever been made,” she said, while also embracing the not-so-glamorous aspects of the event. “You just have to accept it. It’s very hot and humid as usual.” Inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, things sizzled from the jump. With no host for only the fourth time, the evening’s proceedings were kicked off by Homer Simpson – who was swiftly hit by a falling piano – and after a few comedy bits, it was trophy time. “It looks pretty on TV, but it’s like a hot Bikram yoga class in here…

With the formalities out of the way, A-listers scattered around Los Angeles with parties hosted by Netflix, HBO and Amazon Studios, in addition to the annual Governors Ball. Before the ceremony, Emilia Clarke told Entertainment Tonight the Game of Thrones cast had already reunited at a pre-Emmys bash. “I left at a reasonable hour because we had to get our beauty sleep for the red carpet,” she said. Post-Emmys, she noted, “There is no red carpet – we are going to get lit!” An eyewitness at Netflix’s bash spotted Clarke dancing to Salt-N-Pepa’s ‘Push It’ with Kit Harington. “He placed his hands on her shoulders, and they shared a cute moment together,” a source tells E!. “DAMN did that dance floor take a beating,” the mother-of-dragons later posted on Instagram, showing…

carter drama turns deadly

THE BIZARRE FAMILY DRAMA surrounding Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter and his younger brother Aaron has taken another turn, with Nick beefing up security after taking out a restraining order to protect his family against his sibling. This came after Aaron shared a video on Instagram on September 21 in which he threatened to “kill everyone”. In court papers relating to the order, Nick alleges that during a FaceTime conversation in August between Aaron, 31, and their sister Angel, Aaron said: “I have thoughts of killing babies.” Nick, 39, and his wife, Lauren Kitt, are expecting their second child in weeks, having suffered a miscarriage last year. “There is definite concern for Lauren and this situation has been very stressful for her,” a source told Us Weekly. “She’s very close to her due…

gosling charges upgraded

MELBOURNE IT WORKER ANDREW Gosling is facing 15 years in prison and an excruciatingly painful caning after it was alleged he threw a wine bottle from a high-rise building in Singapore, killing a 73-year-old grandfather.

The grandfather of nine suffered multiple heart failures and died in hospital…
