LOS ANGELES (AP) — With the show's sleek, angular set as a backdrop, Emmy Awards presenters and performers took a few minutes to perfect their lines the day before the ceremony.
Allison Janney, Anna Faris, Don Cheadle and Carrie Underwood were among those rehearsing Saturday at the Nokia Theatre, where the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be presented Sunday.
Janney and Faris play mother and daughter on their new show, "Mom," and channeled that vibe in their rehearsal. Wearing a silver mini-dress with matching sandals, Faris was all energy. After missing one of her lines, she joked, "Yeah, I'm going to be great at this." Janney, willowy in a black T-shirt, jeans and boots, seemed studious by contrast — or maybe it was just the dark-framed glasses she was wearing.
They presented two awards in front of an audience of rehearsal actors and seat-saving placards. When they finished, Faris tried to thank the crew from the stage, but the microphone had been turned off. She and Janney then walked through the audience, looking for their seats.
