Octavia Spencer's Face Is GORGEOUS But Her Emmys Red Carpet Look Is A Total Miss

octavia spencer emmys emmy awards 2014 red carpet

We're just not feeling Octavia Spencer' look at this year's Emmys.

She continued this year's trend of red gowns on the red carpet with a Tadashi Shoji silk dress that just didn't quite connect.

We appreciate the cultural influence here, but some odd choices made this a miss. The sleeves, the twist in the front, it's just lacking in elegance.

If she wanted to spice things up with a sari, maybe she should have gone with an even more traditional look?

live action beauty and the beast coming who should be cast

A tale as old as time

Disney has JUST announced that following the success of Maleficent, they're bringing another classic to the big screen in live-action form and it's none other than…

Beauty and the Beast!!!!

Not only is it coming, but it's confirmed that Bill Condon, who was the genius behind Twilight: Breaking Dawn, will be directing the film!!

But the question that remains is who will play Belle? Beast? Lumiere? Cogsworth?!?! GASTON?!?!

Well, Disney, we did you a favor and narrowed down the actors and actresses who should be your top picks..

She's saving the gowns for later!

Octavia Spencer kept it chic and easy at the Fox upfronts in NYC yesterday, leaving the fancy frocks to the other women while looking relaxed in white pants and a subtly printed blouse.

The newly cast Insurgent actress' ensemble was deceptively simple, but you can tell that she took the time to look stylish and polished by accessorizing with hoop earrings and multi-strap heels. Her black blazer also added a touch of sophistication to the outfit.

And we can't go without mentioning her bouncy waves and flattering makeup!

A casual look, flawlessly executed! Nice job!

octavia spencer joins diverent cast for second movie 2(1)

Now THIS is a star studded cast!

Octavia Spencer has been announced to join the already award winning cast of Divergent for the second film, Insurgent!

The Help star was casted as Johanna, leader of the Amity Faction, and will star opposite of Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet.

Octavia won't be the first Oscar winner on the roster as she joins Kate in that department!

Maybe some of the youngsters on set could learn a thing or two from these award winning actresses!

Insurgent is the follow up to Veronica Roth's hit novel, Divergent and we're sure the world is itching for the second film to go into production like, NOW.

Murder, She Wrote Is No More - NBC Pulls The Plug On The Hopeful Reboot!

Ahh, Angela Lansbury, you jinxed it!

But it's probably a good thing you did! This is a classic that was not meant to be remade!

Months after the former Murder, She Wrote star slammed NBC's idea to reboot the show, the big wigs are changing their tune!

Apparently the plug has been pulled and there will be no more remake of Murder, She Wrote with Octavia Spencer, for now at least.

The people over at NBC DID confirm that there won't be a Murder, She Wrote reboot at this moment, but they aren't opposed to visiting that idea again!

Hm, maybe the people over at the peacock network should stop trying to make a Murder, She Wrote reboot happen, because it seems awfully reluctant!
