Gwyneth Paltrow: Five tasty moments from her Emmy weekend

Gwyneth Paltrow recalls her Emmy experience

Gwyneth Paltrow, that vessel through which acting, red-carpet gowns and lifestyle advice flows, on Thursday shared an account of Emmy weekend via her lifestyle blog, Goop.

Yeah, we're excited. No, we're not hiding it. So excited, in fact, that we've narrowed down the so-called scrapbook to five must-know moments from the Emmy winner's adventures on the award circuit. 

TV in the DNA: Paltrow's win at the Creative Arts Emmys — for guest actress in a comedy series — and subsequent presenter duties Sept. 18 on the prime-time telecast held special significance in the actress' creative family. Her late father, Bruce Paltrow, who produced shows including "St. Elsewhere," never took home a trophy.

"This was especially meaningful, as my father ... had been nominated and lost the Emmys nine times. So I'm pretty chuffed about the whole thing. And my dad would have been over the moon," she wrote.

Mileage: The scrapbook gives GP's travel timeline, which was considerable. The "Contagion" star left Paris on Saturday morning from the Eiffel Tower-proximate Shangri-La Hotel, hopped the Eurostar back to London to take her kids to a play, then boarded a direct flight from Heathrow to Los Angeles.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Tina Fey Fanning out: Gwyneth is a big TV fan, and not only  from her residency on "Glee." She nabbed Tina Fey and Jack McBrayer of "30 Rock" for a fan photo, saying she lives for the funny pair. 

Mopping up: While hair and makeup was a breeze, her Pucci gown was sewn to perfection and traffic was easy on Paltrow, she did have an issue with her show seat.

"The seat filler before me was sweaty ... so my chair was wet," she recalled. "Gross!"

Respect thy fashion: Despite her cool blond decorum, it's obvious that Gwyneth adores clothes and accessories. Witness by these major queeny references to her garb:

"These beauties are going back to Neil Lane. Bye bye girls. I will miss you," she said of earrings, two bracelets and a ring by the jeweler. And...

"She needs to get whisked back to Paris," Paltrow said of her Pucci gown.
