Well, hello, gorgeous. Were you aware there are only 25 days until the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards? To prepare for the occasion, 76-year-old comic actress Joanne Worley hit the red carpet at this week’s Emmys cocktail reception in Beverly Hills. Sure, it’s been a few years since Laugh-In but she’s still got it!

Not to be outdone, 80-year-old TV legend Florence Henderson also showed up at the Emmys soiree wearing an outfit you’d never catch Carol Brady of The Brady Bunch in

But at least they dressed up. Former Saturday Night Live original Laraine Newman was the picture of frowziness at the Emmys event. Still not ready for primetime after all these years...

As for currently employed actors, Modern Family stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ty Burrell couldn’t keep their hands off each other at the Emmy mixer

Also in the house: Emmy nominees Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Kevin Spacey, who play a dim vice-president and a ruthless political shark on their respective series (Veep and House of Cards for you non-TV types). Don’t let their smiles fool you. They’re really bitter enemies

Now to New York, where Nick Cannon tried to keep awake for the kickoff of America’s Got Talent at Radio City Music Hall. Hey, you try being married to Mariah Carey

Naturally, German supermodel Heidi Klum, now an AGT judge, was at the same event. Looking at her now, it’s hard to believe that she used to play keyboards with The Scorpions

And here’s Melanie Brown, former Spice Girl and current AGT adjudicator. Call her Scary Spice and you’ll live to regret it

Canada’s own Howie Mandel was also on hand at Radio City Music Hall, but he refused to touch anyone else’s hand. Since he’s a germaphobe, you know

And what AGT occasion would be complete without Howard Stern? Radio provocateur and sharp-dressed man about town

Nice to see Howard still rocking the perm at 60

Meanwhile in Tokyo, actress-model Nicola Peltz dutifully posed for pictures this week at the Japanese premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction

And because she’s a good person, Nicola even posed on the red carpet with her Transformers co-star Jack Reynor. Nobody was looking at Jack Reynor

But mostly Nicola Peltz practised for her next show-business gig: Posing at auto shows

But the real car-flogging demonstration was going on in Guangzhou, China, where Aussie actor Hugh Jackman and Taiwanese actress Shu Qi were enlisted to appear at a promotional event for a new Toyota vehicle. Didn’t this dude used to host the Tony Awards?

‘And then the little rabbit was pounced upon by the Wolverine...’

Our last stop is the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Brooklyn, N.Y., where former Star Trek mainstay George Takei discovered the perfect venue for his new biographical documentary To Be Takei: On-board the Queen Mary 2. At sea, nobody can hear you scream

Diane Bondareff/Invision for Cunard Line
