Was Julianne Hough’s dress worse? Maybe. But Julianne Hough is not a Best Actress contender. The more important the player, the more egregious the fashion crime. That’s the trade-off for being in first place. Or in a tie for first place. Right now it’s Chastain vs Lawrence on February 24 (although I still think there’s a slim possibility they could split the vote and lose out to Naomi Watts; we’ll see how it plays out in the next few weeks). Full Story

I feel like I am running so much game for Kristen Bell and I am just getting sh-t in return. I talk about how smart and thoughtful her portrayal of Veronica Mars was, and people counter with how much time and attention she takes from other Craig Ferguson guests. Or I say she’s doing some interesting stuff on House Of Lies -- which by last night’s indication is being watched by only the Hollywood Foreign Press – and people counter with films like When In Rome and twee talk show appearances on Ellen. Full Story

Come on. You knew it. Duana rolled her eyes as soon as she saw the braid. And the print. For all the slinky mermaids and the red taffetas and the strapless sparkles and the goddamn lace, Lucy Liu’s Carolina Herrera was an exception. No one else was working this shape with this much structure. Full Story

Here is the unfortunate truth about the Globes, when you are a TV person. You get thrown a bone maybe, if you win, but the camera is not going to keep coming back to you over and over. There are sixteen reasons to cut to the producers of Argo, but for TV, once your category is done, you will not be seen again. Full Story

You know why. Because she cleaned up his mess. This is what she does. He forgets to thank George Clooney and Grant Heslov and he tells her to get up there and fix it for him. She’s been fixing it for him for almost 10 years now. Ben Affleck, the award winning director, was fixed by Jennifer Garner. Full Story

What? I’m just saying, they looked like they were having a lot of fun together on the red carpet. There are so many reasons to love Sofia Vergara a lot. This boring dress is not one of those reasons, but whatever. My point is she makes me smile. I look at her and I smile. I listen to her and I smile. Full Story

She had to bring him. She had to. She could not face the Afflecks alone. I don’t understand why. If I’m JLO, I’d face the Afflecks alone every.single.time. Especially in this dress. No, I don’t like this dress. In fact, I think it’s a gross dress -- much more typical of Zuhair Murad than Marion Cotillard’s last week Full Story

Globes Best Table: Julia and Leo

Any time Julia Roberts is there, hers in the best table, OK? This is the rule and it’s sacred. And when she’s seated next to Leonardo DiCaprio? Please. There’s no argument here. You won’t win this argument. How can you win this argument when she has her glasses on, probably lecturing him about something, or laughing about Jennifer Lopez’s waiter-bear, as her husband sits mute on the other side? And then there’s her dress. Full Story

Worst Globes Letdown: Anne Hathaway

I don’t know why it has to be so hard. Anne Hathaway started the night off so strong: white dress, as is often her wont, cute hair, and the key to everything – Amy and Tina on her side with a joke early on.  For a girl like me, someone who tries to like Anne Hathaway very much, and often feels like she gets a bad rap for being earnest, instead of the insufferable most people paint her as, there starts to be a little bit of hope. Full Story

You have to have a certain personality for this jacket. Ben Affleck could not have pulled off this jacket. Definitely not Leonardo DiCaprio. Ryan Gosling? You know what? Yeah, he probably could. And definitely, definitely RDJ. Love the colour, love the texture, love the length, love the bowtie, love it without the bowtie at the after-party too. Full Story

Globes Best Acceptance of Limitations: Jon Hamm (Also, Jennifer Westfeldt)

I’m not going to comment on her face, because it’s sad. We all know it and maybe we know why it’s happening and either way it’s upsetting. So. I will however comment on Jon Hamm. Ryan Seacrest goes “so uh, now that you’re getting into directing, do you think you’re going to write some Mad Men, too?”  And Jon Hamm, God bless him, points out that the writers on his show are brilliant and that he himself cannot string two words together and that he won’t even be attempting it. Full Story

Please can we enjoy this moment again? I love this moment. I loved it when Amy Poehler sat on George Clooney’s lap when his category was being presented. Look at his face. Look at that smile. This is when I love him the most. He’s game, you know? As Duana said at the time, George Clooney is rarely pouty. Full Story

How is it that other people get concern levied at them if they have too little eyeliner on but everyone just lets Kristen Wiig look nuts, and nobody says anything? The red hair and tan skin combined to make her look like nothing so much as the third Olsen twin, not least because she’s lost in the bottom of that dress. Full Story

A Cheongsam at the Globes: Sienna Miller

Two piece cheongsams are popular at weddings. I think I wore one at mine, picked out by my ma, obviously. Was this Erdem, worn by Sienna Miller, inspired by the cheongsam? Picture it in red with gold detailing, perhaps leading you to your table at a Chinese restaurant. Right? I don’t hate the choice the way some of you do. Full Story
