The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place last night (20 September) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. As usual, before the statuettes could be handed out to the pick of this year's TV shows and stars, the more important matter of walking the red carpet took place, with many of the nominees, and a few hangers on, dazzling in their finest threads.

Password: password1), but as of press time the account had been closed down due to "too many accounts logging on at once".
