Mayim Bialik sported an unusual accessory on the red carpet this year: an arm brace, which she carefully hid behind her back while posing for photos. The brace is a remnant from a car accident that almost severed the Emmy nominee's thumb earlier this summer. But the "Big Bang Theory" star isn't letting her injury stop her from enjoying her first-ever Emmy nomination (how did "Blossom" never get an Emmy nom?) -- and has been blogging about her favorite moments. She wrote about sort of hugging Zooey Deschanel, joked about her accident with Joel McHale, and doing a "quadruple-take" when seeing Kevin Costner. Her favorite moment from the Emmy nominee reception: "Running into Jim Parsons at the valet station as we both left to go home. He was at a different party and was trying to sneak out unnoticed, I think, but once I grabbed him, we hugged many times and had a great 10 minutes waiting for our cars together."
