Andrea’s report from the red carpet
This Sunday, I had the privilege of attending the Red Carpet Bleachers at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards!
My night started out great when I was asked by the TV Guide channel to participate in an on-camera trivia game, and the host was none other than David Denman’s BEAUTIFUL wife Nikki Boyer. She was as sweet as can be, and even revealed a little tid bit about this coming season.
When I was interviewed, she asked me who I was the most excited to see, and of course I said the cast of “The Office,” especially John Krasinski =D
The arrivals began around 2:30, and the first cast member I saw was Phyllis! I held up the “That’s What She Said” sign, and she responded with a large smile, and came right over to the bleachers to autograph it. She looked beautiful! Thank you Phyllis!
Next came Leslie, Oscar, Creed, Brian, and Kate. They all seemed excited and amused to see the sign, and came over to meet me as well! The men looked quite dashing, and Kate looked so elegant!
Angela arrived next. When I spotted her, I showed her the sign, but realized it was upside down! She was so sweet and asked the security guard to let her through the rope to greet me. She even posed with the sign, and offered to retake the picture due to the sun. How nice is that?! Her emerald dress looked amazing on her! Thanks Angela!
Next came Jenna, and she looked absolutely gorgeous! She took the time to come over to the bleachers, even though she had a live interview with E! shortly after. She was kind enough to come back after her interview to sign for the people sitting next to me as well! Thanks Jenna!
Although Rainn, BJ, Mindy, Steve, Melora, Craig, and John were unable to come over to the bleachers, (which is COMPLETELY understandable due to the mob of people on the carpet, haha) they ALL acknowledged me with either a thumbs up or a huge smile, and that definitely made my day. I don’t know what I would have done without that sign!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to ALL of the cast members for making my Red Carpet experience so incredible. I will NEVER forget that day and the warm responses I received. It just proves how down to earth and fantastic the cast is. They really do care about their fans, and that is MUCH appreciated. I love you all! And I cannot wait for Season 5 =D
**Tanster, the pictures I included are of some of the cast members with the sign, John by himself, Craig pointing out my sign to John, and me with Nikki Boyer** thank you! I hope I can share my story and pictures with my fellow Tallyheads =D
[from tanster: check out an awesome slideshow of Andrea’s photos here. The photos shot by the “official” photographers are pretty to look at and all, but I think Andrea’s photos beat them all by a mile. :) ]
