When Gretchen, my six-fingered assistant, awoke me from my Nyquil-induced slumber screaming into the phone about how hot Kate Gosselin looked at the 2010 Emmy Awards, I knew two things: first, I have got to change my cell phone number, and, second, it was going to be a lean year for the sexy at TV’s annual award show. Heck, I don’t know if my top two picks, Jewel and Keri Russell, are even on TV. For all the effed up nonsense of the movie business, the silver screen has a good leg-up on television when it comes to the hottie factor.
Still, there are some amazing looking woman on the boob tube, many of whom made our list of Top 10 Hotties at the 2010 Emmy Awards, in spite of the fact that a whole lot of this year’s small screen ladies sure looked like they were some guy’s third string option to the prom circa 1996. Honestly, a shout-out to the dead singer of Blind Melon would not have surprised me in the least.
Here’s my Top 10 among the pretty lean crop this season, pictured from left to right: Jewel, Keri Russell, Maria Menounos, Olivia Munn, Christina Hendricks, Eva Longoria, Nina Dobrev, Sofia Vergara, January Jones, and Brooke Burke.
