Sarah talks boobs and boffing to Emmy press

Posted by Gator on August 27th, 2014

In the press room of the 2014 Emmy Awards, Sarah was asked about her role [Helen] on Masters of Sex, including the nudity it involved. Based on reports from eonline, afterellen, zap2it, and others, these were among her responses:

“The part of Helen was mentioned in the pilot episode actually and according to [show creator] Michelle Ashford, they’ve always kind of had me in mind. And then I started fucking the star and it really solidified it. Or maybe not.”

“No, I got my job from auditioning.”

“I feel like I’ve suddenly been doing nudity since I turned 40. They’re just boobs.”

“They’re as low as they’ve ever been, but also as high as they’ll ever be at this point. But yeah, it’s a lot of fun.”



Sarah returning to Masters of Sex in season 3?

Posted by Gator on August 27th, 2014

MastersOfSex_LogoSarah hopes to be back on Masters of Sex next season, and the show’s creator, Michelle Ashford, hopes to have her back.

Afterellen.com reported that Ashford said this about Sarah’s Helen character:

“[Sarah's] great. We ended up loving her so much,” Michelle said. “We had her in mind for the longest time for this. She was so game for it and she’s so lovely. Also we knew she had to be a very unusual woman to have hooked up with Betty. So she alone has this whole mystery—but she’s so beautiful and subtle in the role. I think people will be really surprised. She’s lovely and so now she’s in. She’s another one, in with us for good. She’s also a very busy woman so she’s in two wonderful episodes this season but she’s gonna be coming back for sure.”

Speaking to E! on the Emmys red carpet, Sarah herself said, “I’ll be back next season to finish the story up—if I’m allowed.”

Sarah appeared as Betty’s lesbian lover, Helen, in episodes 5 and 6 of the current season (season 2).

Posted by Gator on August 27th, 2014

NPRlogoAs part of a series of specials this week about 2014 Emmy winners, today NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross put together excerpts from interviews she had done with Sarah in 2005 and 2007. You can listen to the whole segment here, or you can read a transcript below:


This is FRESH AIR. I’m Terry Gross continuing our miniseries of interviews with some of this week’s Emmy Award winners.


UNIDENTIFIED ANNOUNCER: And the Emmy goes to Sarah Silverman, “We Are Miracles.”

(APPLAUSE). (more…)

Was Sarah “high as fuck” at Emmys?

Posted by Gator on August 26th, 2014


We don’t know for sure whether Sarah was stoned when she attended the Emmys last night and strode barefoot to the stage to accept the award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special, but the topic sure was trending in social networks at the time.

Many viewers wondered about her demeanor during a red carpet interview with E!’s Giuliana Rancic, which you can watch in its entirety below.


During the interview, when Rancic inquired about what she keeps in her purse, the findings of a subsequent check included Sarah’s vaping pen, about which she said, “This is my pot. It’s liquid pot.”

Sarah reportedly later denied that she had been under the influence during the awards, but explained, ““I was carrying pot in my purse for later. It’s legal! I like to have a puff as a treat at appropriate times.”

Video: Sarah gushes accepting Emmy

Posted by Gator on August 26th, 2014

There’s been lots of talk about Sarah’s excited Emmy acceptance speech.  Below is a transcription, followed by a link to watch it on video. (Although reporters were puzzled by how she ended her speech, fans will recognize her final reference from her Twitter profile epigram: “We’re all just molecules”– which she’s been saying for ages, and which had been considered as a title for her HBO special.)

Emmy Acceptance Speech (August 25, 2014):

This didn’t even occur to me. Thank you to my Jews at CAA: Larry, Moe, Curly, and Nick Nuciforo. Heidi Herzon produced it and Liam Lynch directed– we got the old team back together. HBO, Michael Lombardo, Nina Rosenstein, and @FunnyOrDie.  Betsy and Anna. Amy Zvi: my friend and my manager and my partner, and thank you for being such a huge part of my life.  Flanny– Mark Flanagan– at Largo, thank you for making Largo my home and for introducing me to my love, Mr. Fancy Pants Sheen.  And we’re all just made of molecules, and we’re hurling through space right now.  Thank you.
