Mayim Bialik: My Night at the Emmys in Photos

By at 1:07 pm

Mayim-Bialik-getting-hair-done-for-emmys-2014

1. Getting ready with Robert Ramos, who does my hair (his assistant Lorena took the picture). Yes, I am wearing a Star Wars T-shirt. We ordered vegan Thai Iced Teas and listened to Neko Case’s “Fox Confessor Brings the Flood” and “Blacklisted” albums. Fancy Assistant Brandon and I did some emailing catch up and then he left us all to finish getting me ready.

2. Team Mayim: Robert again, make up artist Linda Cowan (who worked on “Blossom” and also does my make-up on TBBT), and stylist Ja-Niya Walker (who also styled my Cliche magazine shoot and styles me for “Candid Camera”). The sheet on the floor is because my house is under major construction and not only did we get me ready on a dusty dust-coated floor (hence the sheet I am standing on), the demolition of an entire bathroom literally above our heads went on for the entire three and a half hours we were getting me ready. The whole team agreed that it was the most unusual preparation for an awards show they had ever participated in. Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim Bialik: A Nice Surprise at My Emmys Dress Fitting

By at 12:53 pm

Mayim-Fitting

As I discussed last week, despite the troubling and distracting events in Israel and the Gaza Strip, I will be posting a once-a-week update on all things Emmy leading up to the Emmy awards, which will be held August 25th.

Last week, I discussed how we had chosen a very unusual color for the dress, which I will not be telling anyone about before you see it on the red carpet. I also discussed how the dress is very simple, but has some crazy sleeves and sparkly action.

All of that is still true.  Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim Bialik: Why I Wear My Jewish Star

By at 1:18 pm

Mayim-Jewish-Star

Oh, Israel. What a month it’s been for you and me. I lost a lot of fans this month because of my love for you. But it’s OK. I love you more than popularity, even when you make me crazy. And even though I don’t always agree with Israeli policy, I’m still a Zionist.

With all that we have been through this past month, I truly, deeply, for the first time understood why Jews who previously hadn’t worn yarmulkes started wearing them in the United States after the Yom Kippur War in 1973, when an Arab Coalition led by Syria and Egypt attacked Israel on the holiest day of the Jewish year. As we had been for thousands of years, in 1973, Jews were being attacked simply for being.

In the middle of the conflicts in Israel and Gaza this month, and in the middle of the virulent attacks I was coming under on social media, I put on my Magen David–my Star of David necklace–and it strangely felt like putting on armor. It felt like a statement. Gold armor around my neck: the way I show that I am Jewish and that I am not afraid to be so. Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim Bialik: The Emmy Awards Are Coming & I Need a Dress!

By at 1:27 pm

Mayim-emmys-third-time

With all of the Israel news this past month, I almost forgot that the Emmys are coming up and that I’m nominated. I knew they were on the horizon, but all of a sudden, they are less than a month away! Eeeeek!

I have decided to do a post a week about the Emmy goings-on to keep you updated about the dress, the jewelry, the shoes, and all of the appropriate insights I may (or may not) have. This is not to detract from the serious events going on in Israel, Syria, Iraq, or anywhere else, but I know there has been interest in the past in my Emmy journey so I will continue to write about it!

It’s very exciting and it’s a huge honor to be nominated. I have waxed poetic here for the past three years about how humbling and unbelievable it is to me–the grandchild of Eastern European immigrants–that I am nominated for the highest award in my industry. Every year I have been nominated has knocked me on my proverbial tuchus–I really can’t believe it. Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim Bialik: Emmy Noms, Mary Poppins & Other Awesome Things That Happened This Week

By at 11:20 am

Mayim bialik red carpet look

I had taken a week off from blogging and social media due to surgery required for my hand, which was injured in a car accident two years ago. I am using voice dictation programs, but this particular post is being dictated to Fancy Assistant Brandon, who, as I said after my accident two years ago, is not only literally my right-hand man, but helps fill in the blanks of my brain as well.

Here are the top five funny/amazing/wonderful things that happened in this past week. I write this with full awareness that the situation in Israel remains critical and this post is not meant in any way to detract from the seriousness and intensity of what is going on in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza. (Here is the most recent post I wrote about the situation.)

What Mayim Bialik’s Sons Thought of Her (And Everybody Else’s) Emmys Look

By at 12:22 pm

mayim bialik emmys 2013 close upThe 2013 Emmys are a week behind us, and their impact has abated but not subsided. I am still getting a lot of “Sorry you lost!” comments and emails and such, as well as lots of “I loved your dress!” comments and emails and such.

Neither I nor my boys’ father reminded them it was the Emmys last weekend. Sure, they knew I was nominated, but beyond that day when I found out while we were in San Jose and had vegan doughnuts to celebrate, I don’t think they thought too much about it.

This past weekend, though, I mentioned that I wanted their thoughts on my Emmy dress for a Kveller post. My older son who is almost 8 asked, “Did you win the Emmy?”

“No,” I replied. Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim Bialik: Top 10 Moments from the 2013 Emmy Awards

By at 12:20 pm

mayim bialik emmys 2013 eating popcorn1. Losing Team. Let’s just get it out of the way right now: losing sucks. I am a fiercely competitive person about everything from how fast I can run up a flight of stairs to how much someone loves me. Since I was a very small child, I wanted to win all things and be the best at everything and if not, challenge myself to try to be the best by beating myself up for not being the best. So, yeah: losing sucks. I am happy for Merritt Weaver and sure, being nominated makes me a winner, except when it doesn’t because I lost. I am fine, I am OK. I’m not broken, just bent. And I will learn to love again.

2. Eating. Because I am a vegan, eating is often hard at fancy Hollywood parties. I did a smart thing this weekend, though. I attended an awesome PETA event where I could eat literally anything there! Here is the vegan mac n cheez I ate and some of the adorable beautiful animal-cruelty free desserts they had. Yay for PETA. And for feeding me to help metabolize some of the drinks I had that night! Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim Bialik: One Last Emmys Update Before the Big Day

By at 11:43 am

mayim bialik emmys 2012 kvellerWell, folks, the Emmys are this Sunday. Since Sukkot starts tonight at sundown, I (and Kveller.com) will be off the grid Thursday and Friday. That means that the next you will hear from me is from the Emmys (if I can get reception to tweet!) and then after the Emmys.

Here is how it’s shaping up.

I kicked off Emmy week with the Audi and Altuzarra Pre-Emmy party in West Hollywood (for pictures from the event, click here and here). Since I drive an Audi A4 and am totally in love with it, I was thrilled to celebrate in the Audi spirit. Even the bartenders’ aprons had the Audi logo on them! Read the rest of this entry →
