A look back at the best looks for the 2014 Primetime Emmy Award nominees

TV aficionados and fashionistas, get ready! It's almost time to grab the popcorn, get cozy on the couch, and settle in for one of the biggest nights in television: the Primetime Emmy Awards. Who will take home the night's biggest honors? Will it be "Breaking Bad" or "House of Cards"? (It sure won't be "Homeland," as the past winner was snubbed at this year's awards.) Will "The Big Bang Theory" blow up the rest of the comedic competition? Or will "Orange is the New Black" have the Emmy locked up?

Although these are indeed burning questions, it is no doubt that one of the largest draws for any awards show is who will earn the evening's top accolades for fashion. Who will dazzle and who will...well, fizzle? As sure as there are dynamite looks on the red carpet, there are bound to be some bombs as well. For now, let's take a look back at some of the nominees' winning looks at awards shows' past. Will they ace the red carpet again this year? Or will their outfits crash and burn? (No doubt some of the fashions we will want to go up in flames to never be seen again!)

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on August 25th on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT. Seth Meyers, host of "Late Night" and "Saturday Night Live" alum will host the awards.
