Everyone likes to bitch about the weather—even celebrities dressed to the nines for the Emmys. Temperatures hovered near the triple digits today in downtown Los Angeles, where the stars sweated their way down the red carpet at Microsoft Theater. Actress Olivia Culpo (aka Nick Jonas' ex) even wiped out and ended up on the ground from the heat (she's fine now), per TMZ. Some hot takes from the event:

  • Ricky Gervais, nominated for Derek: The Special, compared the heat to getting a "full-body wax." The cranky comic also confessed to E! co-host Ryan Seacrest (who pointed out a vent blowing hot air from the ground), "I'm not good at this."
  • A pregnant Cat Deeley told E! co-host Giuliana Rancic that sitting by a pool drinking margaritas would have been preferable to walking the red carpet. "What are we doing here?" she asked.
  • Actress Allison Janney called the event the "Bikram Emmys," noting that even though it was "just such a cruel joke" to make them all dress up in this weather, she hoped maybe she'd lose a couple of pounds.
  • Seacrest and Rancic couldn't stop talking about the temps even with each other, with Rancic telling her co-host she was "having so much fun" and trying not to think about it, while Seacrest offered, "You don't sweat, you perspire—you glisten."
