I don’t think Christian Bale hates these events as much as, say, Tom Hardy does. But he never looks entirely comfortable either. Last night was probably as relaxed as I’ve seen him though. And that likely has a lot to do with the fact that he’s not a favourite. Just there as part of the team. Full Story

When Lainey and I discussed the show right after it aired, we agreed it wasn’t boring. Some years, sure. But this year it wasn’t boring. There were legitimate races, interesting acceptances, and of course, everyone cringing away from the white-hot glare of Ricky Gervais. So then why were we subjected to Ferrell Full Story

There were rumours last that Brad Pitt might be presenting at the Golden Globes, but his name did not show up on any HFPA press releases. Same goes for Ryan Gosling – and he wasn’t rumoured at all. Brad didn’t walk the carpet. Ryan didn’t walk the carpet. But when the show started, there they were, at The Big Short table, both looking pretty f-cking handsome. Full Story

Style and then substance? Is that the way we should go? Because Rachel has both.  I think her look last night was maybe not some people’s favourite, but I was really into it. To me, it’s a kind of a harder take on her Oscar look from 2010, which was arguably her high-water mark, stylewise. Full Story

Behold, two young(ish) women wearing pretty (boring) dresses who are presenters because they are working (not notable) actresses. What’s the point, again? Why these two? Why BOTH of them? Is one of them not enough to hold our interests but two together makes them more than the sum of their parts? Bush’s Narciso Rodriguez dress is so boring and unimpeachable. Full Story

Of course there were props for her win. Like, actual edible props. She seemed like the Pied Piper of Cookies as she passed them around, and it did something amazing: It started half the speech FOR her. How ingenious is that? When you only have 29 seconds, why waste time introducing the character for those who don’t know? Cookie, of course, is the only topic here. Full Story

Are you watching My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? Unlike Mr. Robot, that one is still underground, even after last night’s win. It hasn’t taken over the conversation so you have time, and it is great. You want to be watching this show, to marvel that they can DO THAT on TV and have it be great and watchable and, as Rachel Bloom pointed out, actually seen by the world. Full Story

Alicia Vikander & Michael Fassbender: losing smiles at the Globes

Seated together at the Globes. Losing together at the Globes. But smiling together at the Globes. There are some people who think that Alicia is leveraging her relationship with Michael for attention. For votes and profile. Which, I get it. I know that move. I love calling out that move. But that move only works if the person being exploited is actually a deal. Full Story

America Ferrera & Eva Longoria: Best Globes Joke

It was the best joke. Because people expect jokes from Aziz Ansari and Ricky Gervais and Will Ferrell. Even from Amy Schumer. But they don’t expect jokes from ‘straight’ actresses, and that’s why it was so great to hear Eva and America point out that they were neither Gina nor Eva (Mendes) nor Rosario, but that they were possibly either Salma or Charo. Full Story

I loved Maggie Gyllenhaal’s dress, which was not surprising to me because I usually love Maggie Gyllenhaal’s dress. She’s so good at choosing patterns and proportions that work for her. But – just gonna come out and say it – is she ever happy? It’s just all very serious all the time. Full Story
