Golden Globes 2013 :: Red Carpet

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Usually, I do a pretty in-depth recap of the major awards shows. This year, I just didn’t have the time to devote to a lengthily post. Here are just a few of my favorite looks of the night and some of my least favorite looks of the night too. Pictured above, Tine Fey and Amy Poehler looked phenomenal all night and were fantabulous hostesses!

Favorites

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Jennifer Lawrence and Clare Danes were both winners and I absolutely loved both of their looks! (Clare Danes’ hair actually looked good! I guess miracles do happen)

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Amy Adams, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, all ladies I love, all looked fantastic!

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Both of these ladies would be two of my least favorite looks if i didnt absolutely adore each of them. No matter what, I ALWAYS include Helena Bonham Carter in my Best Dressed lists because I just think she is so fabulous and bat-shit nuts. And Lena Dunham… I worship this Girl… even when she is horribley awkward walking in heels.

Uglies

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Lucy Liu, Anyssa Milano and Julia LouisDreyfus all looked horrid.

smartwater At The Golden Globes Red Carpet

Eva Longoria, Halle Berry and Lea Michele all looked as desperate for attention as usual. Look at the Queen of Desperation, Ms. Berry, (Halle, not the Glee bitch,) trying her best to Jolie this shit but it is most definitely not working…

WHY THE F*CK ARE YOU HERE?

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

I always like to include a “why the f*ck are you here?” section in my recaps. Megan Fox: I give her credit for such a slamming body after just having a baby, but why was she even there? She’s barely famous and her lame husband hasn’t been famous since 1993. Nicole Richie, I love this woman, I really do, but why was she there? And Francesca Eastwood: I know WHY she was there, she was one of the Miss Golden Globes, but usually the spoiled actor-offspring that are selected for these events haven’t had a dreadful reality show about them yet… Did anyone else catch “Mrs Eastwood and Co.”? I doubt it… but it was horrible. The Eastwood women are spoiled, pretentious and down right annoying… with the exception of the 15 year old who seems to be the only woman in that house with any bit of awareness.

Thanks for reading! Love, GK

2011 Academy Awards

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards were presented tonight from The Kodak Theater in Hollywood. The night’s winners included:

  • Best Picture: The King’s Speech
  • Best Director: Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech
  • Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale, The Fighter

He didn’t even yell at anyone!
  • Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo, The Fighter

The Academy should’ve revoked that damn thing as soon as they announced her name and she pulled the lame-ass “I’m too shocked to get out of my seat” B.S. and then futz around on stage in an “I can’t believe this” frenzy. I can’t [and don’t] beleive YOU, Melissa. You’re award show acting is nearly as bad as Halle Berry’s…. it should have been Helena.
  • Best Actor: Colin Firth, The King’s Speech

I love you, Colin.
  • Best Actress: Natalie Portman, Black Swan

… Ok. Fine.

The evening’s awards were hosted by James Franco, who I’m pretty sure was completely stoned, and Anne Hathaway. Now, I love both of these actors but they were horrid hosts. Really bad. They kept talking about “younger age demographics” and “flubs”… it was bad, they were bad… however, Anne’s many wardrobe changes were pretty fabulous.

  • Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci. Briane Atwood Shoes. Tiffany Jewelry

  • Lanvin custom suit. Brian Atwood Swarovski crystal shoes –which were the best part of my watching experience!!!– & Tiffany Jewelry.


Um… Yes, Please!
I want! I want! I want!
  • Vivenne Westwood corseted couture gown. Jimmy Choo shoes. Tiffany Jewelry

  • Oscar De La Renta. Jimmy Choo. Tiffany Jewelry. –LOVE.LOVE.LOVE.– I want it!

  • Burgundy Atelier Versace. Tiffany Jewelry.

  • Sapphire Giorgio Armani Prive dress and heels. Tiffany Jewelry.

  • Tom Ford lace and crystal gown. Tiffany Jewelry.

… and now, “in no particular order”, some of the best and the worst of the red carpet:

my personal pick for Best Dressed would be this lady,
Mila Kunis


she’s on a lot of other’s worst dressed lists… I like it.
Scarlette Johansen

Cate Blanchett.
Really? WTF is that all over your dress?
Was this designed by the makers of Easy Bake Over? I don’t get it…


Fabulous hair…
The Dress? snooze-fest.
Reese Witherspoon.
“Ashley” called asking about her 2001 homecoming dress….

Nicole Kidman and Gwenyth Paltrow
Both looking amazing.

Helena Bonham Carter.
I don’t care; I love her! & she’s fabulous!

This dress isn’t bad. In fact, I love the shimmer and the color…
but I would have expected more “wow” from a nominee.
Amy Adams… who I love anyway!

Halle Berry,
Please stop.
You’re horrible.
I’m over you.
and completely tired of your forced sentimental speeches.
You’re acting is terrible, making those “touching” announcements unbearable.
We know you’re not really about to cry. You know how we know?
Because you-are-terrible.
You and Melissa Leo should be excommunicated from the Church of Hollywood for such atrocious displays of false emotional reactions.
You two make Marilyn Monroe look like Kathrine Hepburn.
(Ps. I love both Marilyn and Kate)

….and, Halle, you are quite obviously so desperate for attention, which is gross.
Your award show wardrobe picks recently scream “please pay attention to me again!”

Go Away.

-sorry for the recent lack of posts. I’ve been very occupied by the theatre this week and this shall continue through the beginning of this week. I’m in some serious need of some down time and mental relaxation… seriously. I’m going crazy. But, in the words of Lena Horne, which were displayed following Ms. Berry’s horrific attempt at sincerity…

-“It’s not the load that breaks you, it’s how you carry it.”

I will think of this until my next day off. It just seems so far away…

2011 SAG Awards

Today I had a pretty successful shopping day! I picked up a few pieces for Spring/Summer and I even looked at bathing suits. I’m still enjoying the cold weather while it lasts, but I’m also starting to get excited for some warmer weather.

and….. The Screen Actors Guild Awards were tonight!!! I absolutely love the SAG Awards! Winning a SAG award is all part of that dream of mine. A SAG Award, to me, is so much more honorable than even an Oscar. Ugh, I just die every time I watch them. The opening and all the acceptance speeches bring me to tears. It’s that passion all Actors share, and seeing it and hearing it expressed by others gets me all emotional… I’m a dork.

Here are some of the night’s winners:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series:
Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire.


Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series:
Juliana Marguilies, The Good Wife

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama:
The Cast of Boardwalk Empire

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role:
Melissa Leo, The Fighter

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series:
Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock

Outstanding Performance by a Female in a Comedy Series:
Betty White, Hot in Cleavland

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy:
The Cast of Modern Family

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries:
Al Pacino, You Don’t Know Jack

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries:
Claire Danes, Temple Grandin

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role:
Christina Bale, The Fighter

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role:
Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role:
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama:
The Cast of The King’s Speech.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Ernest Borgnine.

Buuuuuttttt….. Obviously the best part of Award Show Season being in full swing are all the red carpet fashions… so here goes:

Claire Danes. Winner. I love this gown!

Jayma Mays. I love how good she looks in Orange!

John Hamm. So foxy.

Julia Stiles. I love this dress. Not sure why, but I do.

Justin… I love you.

This just might be my favorite of the night! Mila Kunis.

I love that White is in!
But Rosario Dawson was one of a select few who looked fabulous in it tonight.

Amy Adams was one of the many who went white with horrible results.
I don’t know why this looks so damn bad, but it does.

No Christina! I love this, I do. And I love you.
But really? Not tonight.

I just keep trying to remind myself that next year,
January Jones won’t be invited to any of these award shows. Ugh.

Nicole! Oh, Nicole.
This picture doesn’t even look that bad. But from every other angle, this dress is bad.

It was pointed out to me that I never picked a Ginger of The Month for January. So….. I will have January’s Ginger of the Month posted tomorrow.

Snubs:
Ok. Now, most of these movies I haven’t even seen yet. But there were a few people that should have been on one of these lists and were not.

Justin Timberlake – I’m biased. I know. I’ve loved J.Tizzle for the past 13 years, but he is so incredibly talented and he’s proven himself to be a fantastic actor over and over. Why was he not nominated for Best Supporting Actor?

Mila Kunis – No nomination? No Best Supporting Actress?

Mark Wahlberg – He’s the only person in the core cast of The Fighter not nominated!

Two of my favorite categories that aren’t as widely popular are:

Best Art Direction:
Alice in Wonderland. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 (Also nominated for Best Visual Effects! woop-woop). Inception. The King’s Speech. True Grit.

Best Costume Design:
Alice in Wonderland. I Am Love. The King’s Speech. The Tempest. True Grit.

In TV news:
Season 4 of The Jersey Shore will be shot in Italy… I’ll admit, I watch Jersey Shore. I don’t rush home or anything. I don’t feel a void or even notice if I miss an episode. But I definitely watch.

That being said, I hate that most Americans traveling abroad have no sense of tact or cultural respect most of the time, and the world’s citizens continue to see us as ridiculous.

So… I don’t particularly agree with sending 8 of our biggest jokes over seas. Obviously the episodes will be full of “fish-out-of-water fun”… But those Italians aren’t going to just overlook Snooki’s big-ass frog slippers. They’ll be insulted by a lack of consideration for anyone and everyone who has to look at them. Not to mention that these people can’t even function in American society… even when that American society is, indeed, in New Jersey.

OH! and one last thing before I wrap this baby up. I came across this article about new shampoos that work better than shampoos currently selling. It’s definitely worth a read! The T-Sfere Technology shampoos are made by a California company named Kronos, which I would try based on the company name alone! (Latin/Greek Nerd Alert!)
