Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Jane Lynch were joined by their Glee cast members to honor Ryan Murphy as he received the PaleyFest Icon Award in LA last night. Lea wore a sheer black Vivienne Tam dress while her boyfriend, Cory, went for a simple suit at the event. The Glee cast weren't the only stars from Ryan's shows to attend the shindig — Leslie Bibb, Carly Pope, and Leslie Grossman from Ryan's first show, Popular, walked the red carpet along with Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha from The New Normal. Many of the stars of Ryan's shows have grown close with the prolific TV creator, and Andrew, Naya Rivera, and Darren Criss even did some impressions of Ryan Murphy on the red carpet for the Associated Press. After the award ceremony, Lea tweeted, "A beautiful night honoring the amazing Ryan Murphy. So happy for him. What a joy to be in such an amazing room with such incredible people."
Glee creator Ryan Murphy shared a sexy photo of Kate Hudson dancing on set yesterday. He's been snapping pictures of the show's stars in preparation for the Sept. 13 season premiere. Last month, Ryan showed Kate posing with Lea Michele while they were in character, adding, "Ms. Lea Michele and Kate Hudson on the NYADA set. Kate had chandelier approval."
Kate is guest starring in six episodes during Glee's fourth season. She'll be playing Cassandra July, Rachel's dance teacher at her new performing arts school. Another A-list star to join the cast this year is Sarah Jessica Parker. She's portraying a Vogue editor, and was recently spotted meeting up with the actual Vogue editor in chief, Anna Wintour, in NYC.
Not only were the lovely ladies of the UK present for last night's big awards show, but a few prominent British designer dresses also made their way across the pond for the formal affair. Glee's Dianna Agron wore a red lace stunner from Giles Deacon, Nicole Richie glittered in Julien MacDonald, Busy Philipps was draped in a Grecian-inspired dress from Alice Temperely and Kate Winslet wore a Jenny Packham number that is sure to go down in the history of elegant award show dresses. Out of these four looks, whose do you like best?
The People's Choice Awards took over the Nokia Theatre in LA tonight with major stars from Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, and Hunger Games in attendance. TV stars Lea Michele, Nina Dobrev, and Neil Patrick Harris were just some of the lucky winners who took home beautiful Waterford crystal statues. Maroon 5, Chloe Moretz, and Adam Sandler nabbed further honors.
Robert Pattinson debuted a new hairstyle and accepted a trophy for best dramatic film on behalf of his Water For Elephants cast. He was presented the award by friend and Twilight costar Ashley Greene as well as Chuck's Zachary Levi. Big-screen comedy Bridesmaids got bragging rights for best comedy, though Kristen Wiig missed out on the fun in order to rehearse for this week's SNL. We were there on the red carpet and behind the scenes during the telecast to chat with attendees and winners.

Anne Hathaway doesn't seem to have trouble getting coveted roles these days, but the one she really wants — a guest spot on Glee — hasn't materialized yet. Despite Ryan Murphy confirming in January that the actress would guest star, Hathaway says she hasn't heard from the series creator.
In an interview with PopSugar, she recounted the anecdote of when she ran into Murphy at the Golden Globes. Anne told us that [Murphy said] "'Anne Hathaway, come on Glee!' And I go yes, and he goes 'Fab, I'll call you.'" Sadly, she added, " . . . And I never heard from him again." She hasn't given up the dream, though, and has a message for Glee's mastermind: "Ryan Murphy, I'm calling you out, I want to be on Glee! I got my songs all ready to go!"
On Saturday evening at Glee: The 3D Concert Movie premiere in Los Angeles, some of the gang from one of my absolute favourite shows, got hair makeovers for the red carpet. Dianna Agron opted for a messy, blunt-cut crop; Heather Morris went for a long, extended ponytail; Jenna Ushkowitz completely amped up her highlights; Amber Riley went from short to long and rusty; and — my crush of the guys — Chord Overstreet got a haircut and lowlights. Take a peek at these hair changes, and vote on which look you like best!
Jon Hamm, Courteney Cox, and More Small-Screen Stars Step Out For the Critics' Choice Television Awards
Some of TV's most popular actors made appearances at today's inaugural Critics' Choice Television Awards. The festivities were held at the Beverly Hills Hotel to honor shows across categories that included reality, comedy, and drama. Cougar Town stars Courteney Cox and Busy Philipps were both on hand for the luncheon, and cable series were also well represented, with Sam Trammell attending ahead of True Blood's season four premiere on June 26. Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks from Mad Men were also there, and she picked up the very first honor of the afternoon, splitting the award for best supporting actress in a drama series with Justified actor Margo Martindale. Jon followed suit shortly after when when he was announced as the winner of best lead actor in a drama series. Fans of the show have a while longer to wait before Don Draper and his cohorts return to TV. New episodes are expected to be absent from the airwaves until March of 2012, though filming resumes next month.
Glee star, Dianna Agron showed off her brand new chin-length bob over the weekend whilst performing at the Glee Live! In Concert! tour in the states. I loved her hair long, so I'm not mad about this cut, although it certainly does look healthy and frames her gorgeous face. I am however super excited for the concert that I'll be going to at the end of June here in London. What are your thoughts on Dianna's new hairdo?
Gwyneth Paltrow teamed up with the cast of Glee this season, and things went so smoothly that she's returning next year too! It seems that in addition to catching the singing bug herself, she also found a great new friendship with her onscreen kissing buddy Matthew Morrison, who turned out for her Walk of Fame ceremony last August. They're literally making beautiful music together as well with Gwyneth confirming that they've recorded a duet for his upcoming debut album. There's no word, though, if Matthew will return the favor when Gwyneth reportedly heads into the studio herself. The pair seems to just love working together, but tell us what you think of their latest partnership — good idea or overkill?
