Lainey and I were talking the other night about Daniel Radcliffe, during his SNL hosting.  Between the sense of humour he clearly has about himself and the Parade interview he gave recently where he so obviously gets that you can’t really go ‘up’ from Harry Potter (not in notoriety, box office, sheer workdays), I realized – he’s gonna be FINE. Full Story

Last year, Jon Hamm wore a really small bow tie to the Golden Globes and not even he could save it. But look at Ewan McGregor’s tiny collar. On Ewan, the tiny collar is not the little bow. The tiny collar works. It works with the lapels. It works with the tie. It works with the slim cut pants. It’s Ewan, right? It always works with Ewan. Full Story

Okay.  So I’m Zooey D.  My show’s off the ground, I’m starting to get some blowback about how over the top the cute-geek thing is, and maybe, truth be told, I’m starting to get a little exhausted of it myself.   So good.  The Globes is a relatively low-pressure time to transition into something else. Full Story

I’m not writing about her poseharding. You know it. You’ve seen it. You don’t need me to repeat it over and over again every time I post about Lea Michele. Let’s discuss instead the Marchesa. There’s been a LOT of Marchesa happening on the carpet with Lea Michele. And, well, Marchesa isn’t exactly Sarah Burton for McQueen. Full Story

GG Please F-ck Off: Paula Patton

We rarely agree, Duana, Sarah, Sasha, and I on a liveblog. I thought it was impossible. I also thought it was impossible to prefer Lea Michele over anyone else. Taylor Swift took care of that for Les Miserables. And Paula Patton followed last night at the Globes.How f-cking annoying was Paula Patton?Paula Patton was involved in every single award. Full Story

GG Best Schtick? Sofia Vergara & Julie Bowen

So you saw most of this play out, right?  On the carpet, we saw the dresses.  Sofia Vergara’s teal – a colour which I already think is kind of alarmingly muted – is tamped down to almost depressing.   But it fits her like no other actress’s dress ever does.  And other than the mincing down the stairs (time for E! to look into a dumbwaiter, maybe?), she looked comfortable. Full Story

GG Most Boring: Mila Kunis

I can’t believe it either. Sorry.And while I’d much rather she be boring, on a night where she was simply a presenter and no longer a nominee, I’ve never known Mila Kunis to bring such little excitement. Mila Kunis, ordinarily, is exciting even in sweats. But we’ve seen this one strap before. And the waistline is almost frumpy and the material is totally unremarkable and her makeup seems half assed and what happened to bringing out those crazy, amazing eyes? How often have you seen Mila Kunis look so dull? Maybe she needs some Jake Gyllenhaal in her life. Full Story

GG Worst Attempt At A Personality Via Her Dress: Dianna Agron

Yeah, so the dress didn’t look good, fundamentally.  It looked intricate, and it’s a great colour on many, but the cut-outs didn’t sit flush against her skin, exactly, which is a problem – and I didn’t love the endless tiers in the skirt either. But this is not her greatest sin. You want to know what is?  She chose that dress – and sure, I can see how she thought it would have a lot of impact. Full Story

GG Sequins & Feathers: Evan Rachel Wood

There is a lot happening here. Ordinarily I’d think too much. (SO weird, I’m streaming an episode of Veronica Mars while writing this article and Alyson Hannigan just said the name Evan Rachel Wood. For real.)Anyway, between the sequins and all those feathers, it’s a lot to pull off. Especially, um, you know, for someone who was sitting on the second level. Full Story

Tux School - this is how you wear one. He actually looks a lot better here than he did by the time award season was over last year. No stress, no pressure, makes a big difference.  Full Story

GG Worst Bridesmaids: Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph

Easy. Retract your claws. Read a few lines and then see if maybe you want to punch me. So there they were, Wiig and Rudolph (and McCarthy, yes, but put a pin in that for one second).  Bridesmaids is, if not the biggest movie of the year, certainly the biggest movie story.  Right?  There’s no question. Full Story

If you were following along with us during our liveblog, you would have read how mad I was at Julianne Moore. Like, MAD. And I NEVER get mad at Julianne Moore. I love her SO MUCH. And I loved her black dress. Now that’s how you change up the skirt on a black dress right? So good. Always so good. It’s just. Full Story

Emma Stone attended the Golden Globes because The Help was nominated for Best Picture. So...she wasn’t up for an individual award (like last year) but, being a pretty important name now, she was allowed to attend and to sit at a front table and enjoy the evening with the team (unlike Anna Kendrick who, as Sarah mentioned during the liveblog, isn’t enough of a heavyweight, and in her supporting role, to have been granted a seat with the 50/50 people). Full Story

She knew it wasn’t her night to win.  She wasn’t working overtime to make it happen, she left the working off the carpet and the precious airtime to those who needed it.  I hear that and I respect it. I bet she had more fun, too, being able to relax with her table and actually take in the awards. Full Story
