Last year, The Affair won the big prize. Best Drama. So people were surprised, this year, when there were no corresponding nominations, based on how much richer and deeper the show was in season two, and how beloved it had been by the HFPA in season 1. No nominations except one—for Maura Tierney playing Helen Solloway, a character who has been my favourite of the four leads all year, and who is marvelously layered. Full Story

Every time I watch something with Olivia Wilde in it, I’m reminded that I like her. I don’t understand why it’s hard for me to remember in between times. But there’s something about looks like this that give me an idea.   It’s just so slouchy. She seems slouchy, even though I think she probably has to stand up very straight to make that dress work right. Full Story

As expected, Matt Damon won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy last night. The entire room knew that Leo was going to take Best Actor Drama. So his goal was to use his speech to present himself as an alternative to the Academy. Hey, you put me up on stage, and this is what I can do. Remember, America loves me too. Full Story

Let’s start with this – I like the dress. I’m always going to be partial to a Jenny Packham anyway, but I liked the scales/feathers on the sleeves, and that it had a different silhouette than a lot of the ‘take on a strapless column’ we saw from a lot of the others.  And if you somehow didn’t hear the deal with the dress—are you one of those wise people who just watches the show?—when asked who she was wearing, Bryce Dallas Howard didn’t just answer. Full Story

I know I’m brilliant and all, but I want you to skip to the end of this article and just look at the full-length image of Jane Fonda in her dress.  I love this dress. I love how proud and absolutely serious she looks. Like, do not be fooled by the yards of fabric that engulf me but stop sharply at my elbows – I am a focused and serious person. Full Story

Kate Winslet was very, very, very surprised when she was named Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Steve Jobs. She wasn’t favoured to win, sure. But at the same time, she’s also been nominated for, like, a hundred Oscars. Kate Winslet is not Rachel Bloom who was doing YouTube videos two years ago. Full Story

Kevin Hart & Ken Jeong: Globes Punchline

You heard it, right? Arguably the gentlest Ricky Gervais joke of the night was pointing out that Jeong and Hart would probably be ripe for adoption by the Jolie-Pitts. If Lainey were beside me she’d be yelling about the fact that there was no Brad Pitt cutaway. Why no cutaway? The joke is double-barbed, of course, because neither Hart nor Jeong is tall…and for that other reason that you’re thinking of. Full Story

Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corinne, was Miss Golden Globe this year. And his was bursting with pride when he introduced her to the audience. While presenting Best Score though… well… Not going to lie. Of course there was a part of me that was, like, HELL YEAH, Straight Outta Compton. Full Story

Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith: Golden Globes (too) smooth?

I want not to be impressed by these two. So much of what they are and do is so packagey and about the brand and come on, nobody is that in love all the time. I’m not even getting into the deep rumours or anything like that, just on a basic day-to-day level, sometimes someone’s watch strap catches a hair on your arm and it makes you irrationally furious, and they never have that. Full Story

Amber Heard: Golden Globes unremarkable

Amber Heard’s not making much an impact post-Globes today, is she? The only reason I’m writing about her is to point out that she’s not making much of an impact because she wasn’t with Johnny Depp last night. Johnny was snubbed by the Globes. Which is probably why he didn’t show up. Full Story

Jon Hamm: Golden Globes Nudity

(The headline is going somewhere. I promise) Everything I need to know about Jon Hamm I learned while he was accepting awards.  That’s actually probably very true and very funny-sad, since it’s so obvious that we don’t know anything about the people we pay so much attention to. Full Story
