Along with blues, shades of pale blush, rose, dove gray and nude were also popular on the Emmy red carpet Sunday, for better or worse. "Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore an all-over embroidered rose gold Monique Lhuillier column gown that shined like a pearl. "Homeland" actress Claire Danes chose an ethereal nude tulle Armani Privé gown with a tulle bodice embroidered with sequins, and a full crinoline lace skirt accented with a woven horizontal ribbon motif. Ever the risk taker, January Jones chose a nude lace Givenchy confection that unfortunately resembled a Band-Aid, especially since the fit was too tight across the bodice.

Richard Dreyfuss has a lot on his mind. And he's more than willing to share. Among his talking points: the beleaguered state of civics education and filmmaking today - most roles in new films are "stupid," he believes - studying at Oxford, directing John Gielgud and auditioning for Jack Nicholson's 1971 drama "Drive, He Said. " He has a story about that one. "I had gone out for one of the parts in 'Drive' and didn't get it, and I was all grumpy," said the 65-year-old Dreyfuss, who appeared trim and sprightly during a recent breakfast at a Brentwood hotel.

Can a Facebook smartphone solve Facebook's mobile problem? Just one week after Facebook's less than stellar IPO comes news that the social network is beefing up its engineering staff in the hopes of releasing a Facebook smartphone by 2013. Rumors and reports that Facebook has been working on building its own cellphone go back to 2010 when Tech Crunch reported  that two high-level Facebook staffers had been tasked with developing a Facebook phone in secret. The rumor resurfaced in 2011 when All Things D reported  that the company was working with the Taiwanese cellphone maker HTC to create a cellphone, code-named "Buffy," that has the social network integrated into "the core of its being.

USC's 2013 football schedule includes two Thursday night games, one Friday night game and the absence of Oregon and Washington. The Pac-12 Conference released the schedule Thursday.

The Trojans, coming off a 7-6 season, will play seven home games, including nonconference games against Boston College and Utah State.

INDIO -- Self-described “model-sociallite” Silka (no last name given) drifted across the densely populated Coachella VIP section during the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' evening set attired in a crocheted shawl, a $400 Malia Mills bikini and a pair of Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges. She was sipping discreetly at a vodka cranberry in a plastic tumbler and turning heads with every step. The New York-based native of Hungary explained she had spent the better part of two days earlier this week sifting through her wardrobe to find precisely the right ensembles for three days' worth of festival revelry beneath Indio's baking sun. “Of course I love the music but of course I want to look good,” Silka said as a male companion smiled in nodding agreement.

"Hotel Transylvania" director Genndy Tartakovsky was watching TV when the Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday morning and didn't hear his movie -- or any other animated titles -- named. Instead, Tartakovsky found out by text that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had nominated his film for best animated feature, along with Mark Andrews's "Brave," Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie," Peter Ramsey's "Rise of the Guardians" and Rich Moore's "Wreck-It Ralph. " "Animators, we're always the last to know," said Tartakovsky, the sixth director to come aboard the monster comedy, which ended up being a surprise hit for Sony Pictures Animation.
