2010 Emmy Awards

I'd like to thank the Academy...

What a weekend! I am still walking on cloud nine…

Saturday night I picked up an Emmy for National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Southeast Chapter; Outstanding Achievement: On-Camera Talent – Performer/Narrator.

Dessert at the Grand Hyatt Hotel

The night started with dinner at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Buckhead — complete with Emmy Award winning desserts!


Corinna with Barry Frankel from Habif, Arogeti & Wynne

I started the show as a presenter, along side of Barry Frankel from Habif, Arogeti & Wynne. They were the accountants that tabulated votes for us, so I joked that he already knew all the results!

Meet my Emmy!

I couldn’t get Barry to tell me if I was one of the winners, so I had to wait along side of everyone else, until finally, my name was called!

Corinna with Antoine Kendrick

After the ceremony, I couldn’t resist a “cheers” with WGCL’s other Emmy winner, Antoine Kendrick. He won for his news promo, “Great Moments in Tough Questions History”.

Corinna with David Cook

The rest of the night was a blur of after parties, with my boy friend, David Cook.

I have some many people to thank!

David, first of all, for flying in especially to be there for my big night.

Evelyn Mims from NATAS, who encouraged me to participate in the process this year.

All of my amazing photographers at WGCL Television, who approach my “Ambush Makeovers” with as much enthusiasm and professionalism as they do any breaking news story.

And of course, my glam squad.

Tonight it was Sara Wolf Mixon from Tootsies who styled my dress.

Marian Goldberg from David Yurman who provided my amazing diamond jewelry.

And Zavia Ross who did my hair and make up.

    I discovered the happy news of your Emmy Award only inadvertently, when researching the recent legal action filed against Lady Gaga, and as reported on your blog. This is I know a much deserved recognition for you, and, in addition to the happiness such an honor must deliver, will propel you to new opportunities. This is really great, and I have only admiration for your accomplishments. Best. Michael
