Julianne Moore took home the Emmy for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in HBO's "Game Change," but the Palin family is still giving her a big thumbs down.

Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol, 21, who's now back on reality TV for "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars," didn't just have a critique of Moore's performance when Us Weekly asked her about "Game Change" -- she also criticized Moore's looks.

"I don't think she's a good interpreter of my mom," Bristol said. "I think my mom's way hotter than that."

She went on to add her other issues with the "Game Change" version of Sarah Palin. "She doesn't have that accent. It's all kind of silly. My mom's awesome."

Moore's Emmys acceptance speech for her Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie Emmy award recognized the fact that the movie hardly got the Palin family's stamp of approval with a little laugh: "I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down," she said.

"Game Change," which dramatized the 2008 election and John McCain's controversial campaign decision to have then-Alaska governor Sarah Palin be his running mate, took home five Emmy awards, including Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries or Movie for screenwriter Danny Strong; Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries or Movie for Jay Roach; and Outstanding Miniseries or Movie.

What do you think: Should the Palins get over it? Did Julianne Moore do the role justice?
