I haven’t seen CZJ out in a long while, and I know part of that was because she had some stuff to sort out, and I am delighted that she took the time to do so and that she looks as gorgeous as she ever did.   Because I am basically a navel gazer, when she came onscreen the first thing I said was “Hey it’s my wedding dress!”  It’s not exactly, but really close, and I was so focused on this doesn’t-matter detail that I missed the singing altogether. Full Story

When I first saw Katharine McPhee’s dress I thought it might be midnight navy instead of black and I was infinitely more interested, but even in black the Theyskens Theory dress is very smart, certainly the best of the boob slings. It’s not all the way overwhelming, but maybe she and her costar Debra Messing thought it was best to ease us back into the idea that Smash is going to loudly and unfortunately invade our lives in just a few weeks. Full Story

Because it’s dark. Wine. And I love a long sleeve on a red carpet. Could she have gone down a size though? I feel like it might be too big. You see how it seems loose around the breast area? Points for the colour not being annoying then but deductions on construction, right? Here’s what Duana pointed out about Naomi Watts when she was being interviewed by Ryan Seacrest, just after Seacrest tried, inexplicably, to engage Liev Schreiber in some kind of man-off. Full Story

There were so many red dresses at the Golden Globes I almost had a seizure. You know I hate a red dress. And I especially hate this one. Enough with the sweetheart neckline and the pearls and the cutesy lollipop hair and the F-CKING NAIL ART and my God, my God with those red satin platforms, my GOD. Full Story

Why would you ever concern yourself with a speech that was serious? The best ones at the Globes are always the ones that are fueled by that legendary bar and a little over the top and genuinely disoriented.   (I said genuinely.) All it took was two minutes from Adele and I knew everything I needed to about her weekend, what and who she and her friend were going to party with after the show (I suspect an hour at the after-party, then In-N-Out at the hotel), how much fun they had getting ready, and how much time she spent writing the song versus talking about how cool it was to be writing a song in a James Bond film. Full Story

Thank you to a reader called Cindy B who sent me this comparison. She titled the photo “Tommy Lee Jones’s Spirit Animal”. It is a terrifying experience talking to Tommy Lee Jones, and not just for journalists. Even Sally Field -- SALLY FIELD! -- agrees that he’s... I mean, intimidating isn’t the word. Full Story

Did you see Joaquin Phoenix’s face during the Tina and Amy opener? You cannot defend a man who can’t smile during that opener. You cannot defend a man who looks like he’s eating sh-t during that opener. It is indefensible. Whatever it is that Joaquin Phoenix objects to in the world should not prevent him from SMILING. Full Story

This is the first time in my memory that we’ve come off an awards show and, of the hosts, gone “f-ck yeah!” They were spectacular, and this was not supposed to be the case. I mean, of course it was but anyone else would have crumbled under the hype. Not our girls.   They were absolutely top-level. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Welcome to the 2013 Golden Globe Awards Live-Blog! Thanks for joining Dean, Duana, Maria, Sarah, Sasha, and me for the next 3 and a half hours...

Did you hear? The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced another group of presenters on Friday. And Julia Roberts will be there. Is it too much to hope for another Who's Natalie?????? moment? I just want to see her judgy bitch-face when George Clooney makes her talk to Stacy Keibler. Please control room director, please just give us that.

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and now Julia -- it's a girl party! It's a drunk celebrities party! 

So we're here until the final credits, and then Duana and I are back tomorrow to break it all down.

Award Season is Gossip High Season.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Dear Gossips,

There were certainly some surprises, and even a hit of mega envy face, but overall didn’t it feel like the Critics’ Choice Awards were a dress rehearsal for the Golden Globes? Most of them held back. You could tell from the opening shot.  Read Full Intro
