Three more sleeps until the Golden Globes on Sunday. You know what I just remembered? You know what won’t be happening at the Golden Globes on Sunday? This:
That same year, in 2015, on the Avengers: Age Of Ultron press tour, Jeremy Renner was dragged for sex shaming Black Widow. And then four months after that, he got dragged again, even harder, for insisting that “that’s not my job” when asked about achieving gender pay equality when it was revealed during the Sony leak that he and Bradley Cooper were paid more than Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams on American Hustle. Sometimes you can’t just take things in isolation.
As we’ve seen, as we approach Globes weekend, the action is picking up in Hollywood. The Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala happened the other night. There are several parties happening tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday. And yesterday Variety hosted their Creative Impact Awards with several contenders and Globes presenters in attendance including Jordan Peele, Daniel Kaluuya, Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot, and Jessica Chastain.
I love what Gal is wearing. And, again, I don’t always love what Gal wears. But I’ve been liking a lot more what she’s been wearing. What will she wear on Sunday? You know. Black. Or will she?
PEOPLE reported yesterday afternoon that some women don’t want to wear black:
According to a PEOPLE source, “There’s some backlash to the wear-black mandate. Some feel women should celebrate their newfound power, strong voices and the future by wearing a wide variety of brighter shades. Instead of distracting from the real issue with a mandate to wear one particular color. There will be big important speeches, no doubt, and they will make a much better statement.”
So… some people, probably most, will be in black, to send a message. But there may be a few who will instead wear brights to also send a message? Who are the few? What’s your prediction? Definitely not Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston who favour black anyway. They’ve both been added to the presenter list along with Helen Mirren and Emma Stone.
Duana and I texted back and forth about the black dress code yesterday. I told her that I was mentioning on the site that she’ll miss her oranges and her greens, because Duana loves colour on a red carpet. And she agreed. But it’s made her even more excited about the makeup and the hair and the accessories. Because for the people who will show up in black, it’ll be in the makeup and the hair and the accessories that they’ll be able to bring out the expression and the personality. Which is probably where we’ll find all our excitement. It could be spectacular. It could be a disaster. It WILL be amazing. Especially if, as Duana predicted, we see some “tiaras and sh-t”. I laughed for a long, long time.
It’s possible. It’s more possible this year than any other year if it’s a parade of little black dresses and people still want to stand out.
Tiaras. Please, please, please let there be at least one tiara.
