Great news! Not only will we be seeing Kristen Wiig at the world premiere screening of Welcome to Me at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday; she’s scheduled to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday to promote the upcoming release of The Skeleton Twins, too! As always, we will provide you with media coverage from all the coming appearances, keep checking back to KristenWiig.org for that!
Almost 100 new pictures of the stunning Kristen Wiig at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards have been added to our photo gallery! She looked as beautiful as ever in a white Vera Wang dress, custom-made just for Wiig, many have even said “her best look ever”. Big thanks to the awesome Lindsey and Ray for many of the images! Click on the previews below to see pictures from the red carpet as well as Kristen and a friend at the HBO after party! Video clips from the show are up next.
Kristen Wiig did, indeed, attend this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Although she didn’t win her category (the Emmy went to Jessica Lange of American Horror Story: Coven), she looked absolutely smashing as she walked down the red carpet! Dressed in a custom-made Vera Wang, Kristen looked better than ever, and seemed to really enjoy herself at the show. The first pictures have been added to our photo gallery, with tons more being added throughout the day. Stay tuned for more!
The day is finally here, and so are the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards! As mentioned before, Kristen Wiig is nominated in the Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie-category for her fantastic work as Cynthia Morehouse in The Spoils of Babylon. To prepare for the big ceremony tonight, I have included a collage of her past Emmy-looks. Can you believe Kristen’s been nominated a respectable SEVEN times already?! Fingers crossed for K-Wiig to attend the ceremony tonight, and let’s hope she takes home the statue even more! Which previous look is your favorite?
Be sure to tune in to NBC at 8pm ET/5pm PT to watch the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards Live! If she does attend, we will be covering Kristen’s appearance at the awards as it happens on this site’s Twitter, so follow us @kristenwiigorg!
On her birthday, Kristen Wiig accepted Olivia Newton-John’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – and here is the hilarious video. She got help from a guy named Justin, who poured a bucket of ice-cold water onto her head after Wiig, in her turn, nominated friend Dawn O’Porter (who filmed the clip), Annie Mumolo (Bridesmaids co-writer) and Kermit the Frog (naturally). Click on the preview below to watch the video in our archive!
It’s that day – the fantastic Kristen Wiig’s birthday! Today, our favorite actress, writer, director, producer, singer – you name it – turns 41. Congratulations, Kristen!! And what a year it’s been! Over the past year, Kristen has starred in three theatrical releases (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Hateship, Loveship), received an Emmy-nomination for her great work in The Spoils of Babylon as well as received rave reviews for her performance in the latest film, The Skeleton Twins. She has also taken her career a step further by announcing that she will make her directorial debut with the new movie written by Wiig and Mumolo (the team behind Bridesmaids), and we’re so (freakin’) excited! So once again; Congratulations on your birthday, Kristen, we hope you’ll have a great one, spent with your family and friends. Fellow Wiigies, feel free to leave your birthday wishes in the comments!
