Oh my Lord with the Dunham and the backlash and the whiplash. Why is it that everyone else can have opinions about everything else but the Lena Dunham situation makes it impossible to have a dissenting opinion? After watching last night I have to suspect people feel protective of her. She’s so gosh-golly and I forget that part of it. Full Story

The issue, I think, with this dress in stills is that the chiffon kind of looks like it has a harsh edge. I felt that way and thought I didn’t like the hem – but then when I saw it moving, when she came out onstage (did we know she was that wee?)  and I fell in love with it. So sophisticated, so gorgeous, and most importantly, so easy. Full Story

It’s McQueen. It’s f-cking marvelous. And few women could do it justice the way Nicole Kidman can. I love the detailing around the neck. Is it bees? Golden bees? God when she does clothing right, there really is no one else. Look at it from the back. Stunning. Not a word I use often. But she is truly stunning. Full Story

One more! There were so many articles today, this one was skipped. Anyway… The dress, it’s Lanvin. I’m not a chanter but I would chant for this dress. One shoulders and the bad fengshui-ness of the imbalance usually scares me but this dress, this dress is my entire life. Check out my Maggie, chic as sh-t, in the best of the evening. Full Story

Globes Worst: Megan Fox

A major event red carpet can be a great equaliser. Without the false hype generated by a calculated single-focus strategy on behalf of one star, awards shows like the Globes separate the top from the bottom. The true celebrities from the pretenders. And this is Megan Fox. On a night when the Brange ruled, as they always do when they are present, when the GMD reclaimed some of his former glory, when Kate Winslet took home double, when Drew and Cam and Pene and Salma played the girly show, Megan Fox was put in her place proving once and for all that her existence is entirely superfluous. Full Story

Globes Best: Colin Farrell

Hemisphere. Like, please. Who would have thought the word hemisphere would set off such loin rubbing fury across the universe? It was a great surprise for Colin Farrell last night. And still he spoke so eloquently, so spontaneously. Hot AND articulate. How can this not bring the quiver? Also – a man who can have a laugh at his own expense. Full Story

Globes Worst Mouth: Gerard Butler

It’s not only the spittle. What’s with the permanent side talk? His lips were stuck to one side of his face –did you see him presenting? I’m not a Gerry B scholar, I don’t know if this is standard. But if it is, there are classes he can take to fix that, you know. Because it’s very distracting. Full Story

Globes Best Snub: Brange > Seacrest

He’s annoyed them before. A couple of years ago and an inane conversation, I think, about breakfast. Since then the Brange has not been a fan of Ryan Seacrest. Last night they didn’t even bother to hide it. It was live television at its best. So Seacrest’s people had been begging the Brange flacks for an interview. Full Story

Globes Best Presenter: Johnny Depp

Take a moment to enjoy him. … … No surprise, he did not walk the carpet. Contrary to most of his peers, he won’t seek the attention unless absolutely forced to. This is why candids of Johnny Depp are so hard to come by. Ask the paps. It’s almost impossible to track JD. And it’s not like they don’t try. Full Story

Globes Rossum: Anne Hathaway

Could be the lingering effects of that insipid acceptance speech last week at Critics’ Choice when Angie gave her the death stare, could be the way she was fluttering around like a debutante at the ball last night when it’s not her first time, could be this dress… Grace of Monaco did it better. Full Story

Globes Best Goldwhore: Jennifer Lopez

This is what we live for. Attention whores and red carpet spotlight grabs. These are the moves that define smut, that shape good gossip, and once upon a time, Jennifer Lopez was our queen. Then she married Marc Anthony and he shut her away in his oppressive vampire castle. But there has been a rebirth of the diva inside the JLo. Full Story

Globes Worst Makeup: Drew Barrymore

Lainey Posted by Lainey

She was a hot mess last night. In every sense. So it’s a testament to her beauty that she did not look ugly. But that dress was a cheap disaster. And the grey eye shadow, oh la. Too much, too obvious, too desperate. Grey Gardens. We get it. The gays all get it. But makeup is makeup. It’s not a f-cking movie promotion. Full Story

Globes Best Friend: Tom Cruise

The GMD – he was Mr Popular last night, wasn’t he? Could not WAIT til commercial break, at which point he apparently launched himself up out of his chair in a mad dash to talk to Leo, to Kate, to Steven, to Clint, to anyone who would meet his mother. Bitch is f-cked up and weird but you have to admire the effort. Full Story

Globes Worst Black: Renee Zellweger

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Most will probably be naming her Worst Dressed today. But that’s too easy. And it’s also unappreciative. Because some choices are so spectacularly bad, they serve to entertain and the assyness of Renee Zellweger last night was amazing. We should be thanking her. You were gaping, right? You called up your gay and squealed, right? Once every carpet, a dress will do that. Full Story
