The Emmys weren't just a showcase for how awesome Neil Patrick Harris is. The awards show was also the prime Hollywood hookup market of the fall. E! Online reports that Jason Segel, whose CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother was nominated for Best Comedy Series, and Chloë Sevigny, one of the plural wives from HBO's Best Drama Series nominee Big Love, were spotted making out at HBO's afterparty. Reps for the two declined to comment, but we know it is on.
Chloë and unfeasibly tall Jason were spotted kissing in a secluded corner of the HBO party, and according to E!'s spies, they left together, probably to continue consoling each other in their losses to Mad Men and 30 Rock, respectively. Now that we mention it, awards shows have to be even better for meeting people than weddings. Everyone's dressed up, a little drunk, and either super happy over winning or kind of depressed from losing. Bringing a date is starting to sound like bringing sand to the beach. 3 Reasons It's Great To Be A Bridesmaid
Jason, who has the very exciting job of writing the next Muppets movie, in the past dated his Freaks and Geeks costar Linda Cardellini, and was linked with Drew Barrymore and Michelle Ryan. He's also said that the scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall in which he's dumped while totally naked was inspired by a real event in his dating life. "At a certain point we both acknowledged that I should go get dressed," he told Elle earlier this year. "Picking out an outfit for the second half of a breakup is the hardest outfit you'll ever pick out in your life."
Chloë infamously dated her director for The Brown Bunny, Vincent Gallo, and there is nothing we can link to that would illustrate the relationship that would be safe for you if you're reading this at work. You're welcome. She's also dated Harmony Korine and musician Jarvis Cocker. While we have nothing against all those fellows, we do think that the burly, decidedly un-hipsterish Jason is a total upgrade. Mazel, you two.
