And the awards for best off-screen chemistry go to...

5. Jon Hamm and Tina Fey - OK, so they're not actually a couple. But, with no disrespect to Jon's girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt (who looked lovely in Armani) or Tina's husband Jeff Richmond (who we didn't see), these two have incredible chemistry. (More Hamm on 30 Rock, please!) As part of what was arguably the best part of the show—the Glee-inspired "Born to Run" performance—the funny duo hammed it up as Jon wrapped his legs 'round Tina's velvet rims.

6. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt - Walking their first red carpet as husband and wife, the newlyweds were the picture of a happy, handsome couple. Emily looked lovely in a romantic lavender Christian Dior gown, while John looked crush-worthy as always in his Prada tux.

7. Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer - While Anna's dress wasn't nearly as offensive as January Jones', we certainly weren't fans of her Alexander McQueen "breasts of armor" number. Luckily, she spend a lot of time snuggled up to new husband and True Blood co-star, Stephen, hiding some of the ugliest parts. But bad dress or not, these two ooze too much sex appeal to leave off the list. Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer Got Married

8. Joel McHale and Sarah Williams - Joel could have shown up in a potato sack and we'd probably still have put him on this list. But as it happened, he looked very dapper in a classic tux and, even though we're horribly jealous of his wife, Sarah, she looked lovely in a simple black dress and a poppin' yellow clutch.

9. Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon - Although they've been married for 22 years, Kyra and Kevin looked just as much in love as the newlywed couples prancing around the red carpet. Kevin beamed proudly as Kyra, in a lovely plum Monique Lhuillier gown, pulled off a surprise victory over The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies as Best Actress in a Drama for her role in The Closer.
