The red carpet at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards threw into sharp relief just how safe female musicians are required to play it these days when it comes to their image. The steady stream of jewel-toned gowns, softly waved tresses and unremarkable diamond baubles was eerily similar to the red carpet scene at the Screen Actor Guild Awards a few weeks ago. Since when did pop and rock stars start dressing like actresses? Rock 'n' roll rebellion may have been in short supply, but classically pretty ensembles were everywhere.

It was one thing when the striking writers interrupted our late-night viewing routine. And another as, seemingly overnight, they put the kibosh on our favorite primetime series. But, by depriving us of our globes of gold, now they're really kicking us where it counts. That six-to-seven-hour Sunday time block has been reserved on our calendar for months now - and the snacks, the wine and the witty asides on stand-by. Oh, Golden Globes, what will we ever do without your: Carpeted Gauntlet Walk --Any awards-show connoisseur knows that the red carpet pre-game show is by far the choicest viewing - certainly more important than the part where awards are handed out. Back in the day, we were left to like it or lump it with Joan Rivers and her sniffy commentary on the arriving stars' outfits and resumes.

St. Mary's running back Dontra Peters doesn't take as much of a beating as he used to. Now, when he gets tackled, he's not getting slammed into rock-hard dirt; he's getting slammed into cushy artificial turf. The Saints' old home, Weems Whalen Field in Annapolis, was primarily dirt by this time of the season, but their new field, not far away at St. John Neumann Church, is a featherbed by comparison. "At Weems, when you get tackled, it hurts," Peters said. "You've got rocks on the ground, and when you get up, you could be cut up and bleeding because you fell on something -- and the ground is hard itself.

LOS ANGELES -- Apparently, the Emmy memo went out: Shun the fussy, shellacked up-dos; bypass the bacon-hued faux tans; and be sure to don a variation of red or silver to blend in with almost every other attendee. Clearly, not everyone got that memo, which, quite frankly, is a great relief. The Emmys have never been known for a risque red carpet, and this year was no different, with many of TV's finest choosing to stroll safely into the Shrine Auditorium. With a host about as serrated as a butter knife, did anyone expect otherwise?

Stephen Robinson, who will be 2 next month, dashed for the giant inflatable monster truck as soon as his shoes were off. After four months of visits to AIRMania Fun Zone, he knew the play space well. His favorite, he indicated with a shy point of the finger, is the firetruck. AIRMania, which opened in late January on Red Branch Road in Columbia, is owned by Alan Harry, his son, Chris Harry, and a third partner, Ed Sharkey. It offers 6,000 square feet of carpeted space for kids like Stephen to play, and eight enormous inflatable devices for them to play on. Most of the inflatables are more than 20 feet tall and have features such as slides and basketball hoops inside them.

On a chilly afternoon with six games already in the 2007 books and nine years of losing stuffed in this city's back pocket, yesterday's home opener at Camden Yards might not have meant what it once did. But don't tell that to John Parrish, the Orioles' resurgent left-hander, who smiled just a little as he jogged down the orange carpet from center field during pre-game ceremonies, soaking in the glory of his third opener at Camden Yards. Parrish knows that two years can be a lifetime, seven years an eternity.

Ryan Pinkston's life is just like that of any 19-year-old's - except that on any given day, he may read a screenplay, stop by a few auditions or call up his buddy Ashton Kutcher. A really good day might include kissing Carmen Electra. Pinkston may not yet have achieved the fame of his friend Kutcher, but his face is instantly recognizable to anyone who has watched the hidden-camera hit Punk'd. These days, the Columbia native is living in Los Angeles while searching for his next step toward stardom.

Hollywood magic worked its most potent spell last night on Abigail Breslin. With whimsical sleight-of-hand, the preteen Cinderella was transformed from the gawky, bespectacled beauty pageant contender she played in Little Miss Sunshine, to a composed little princess, worthy of any crown. Her red-carpet transformation came during last night's presentation of the 79th Academy Awards, a razzle-dazzle evening of visual delights. Abigail turned up in what resembled an "Easter basket dress," said Joanne Stoner, founder of eDressMe.

The Emmy Awards are not the Oscars, but it was hard to tell on last night's red carpet as stars from prime time's most celebrated shows posed for cameras in elegant, sober, sophisticated, reined-in fashions. That's not to say the fashions were boring. On the contrary, the looks seemed fresh and many of them even fashion-forward. The newest trend unveiled at the television awards ceremony was purple. From lavenders and lilacs to eggplant and deep violet, purple was the "it" color to wear.
