Reese Witherspoon

2012 Golden Globe Awards

Ricky Gervais hosted the 2012 Golden Globe Awards tonight in spite of or beacuse of all the headlines he made last year with his jabs at all of Hollywood’s elite. I love Ricky and was disappointed at how infrequently throughout the show that he was actually allowed to speak. Is it really considered hosting if you only make an appearance on stage once every hour?

Host of the 2012 Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais

Tonight’s Golden Globe awards provided some AMAZING looks and some awkward moments. In fact one of the most awkward things to happen started during E! New’s red carpet coveage, where Fashion Police’s Kelly Osbourne kept insisting how much Sophia Vergara’s dress looked like hers…. I’ll let you decide, but I’m sure you’ll come to the same conclision as I did…. Yeah, poor Kelly.

Sophia looks amazing!!! and so does Betty White!

Lets start with my favorite looks from the Red Carpet and to begin, The Best Looking Gingers.

Emma Stone - One of my favorite gingers and one of my favorite looks from the evening.

Nicole Kidman

Debra Messing

Julianne Moore - I wouldve liked this even more if it didn't have the frill in the middle. Also, absolutely love the green earrings!!!

Here are the other looks of the evening that I absolutely loved:

Zooey Deschanel - This was my absolute favorite look of the night! Plus, I am a huge fan of fun fingernails and Zooey's were painted like little tuxedos!

Evan Rachel Wood - I loved her feathery frock!

Reese Witherspoon

Angelina Jolie - LOVE the pops of red. Hated all the pretentiousness on the red carpet.

Charlize Theron

Kate Beckinsale

Other Great Looks:

Claire Danes and Heidi Klum both looked fabulous!

Mila Kunis, Jessica Alba, Kate Winselt, Sophia Veragara

Rooney Mara, Kristen Wiig - even though I cant stand her, Nicole Richie - not sure why she was there though, Selma Hayek

But the ladies were not alone in the Best Looks department. Here are, who I think, were the best dressed men of the evening… it doesn’t have a lot to do with what they wore either.

Ewan Gregor - that fine piece of scottish a.., Zachary Levi - the sweet piece I only recently noticed, now I'm in love. Johnny Depp - loved the emerald green vest and pocket watch with matching green face!, Elton John and David Furnish, Leonardo DiCaprio

…. and the worst looks:

1.) Jessica Beil - she must have been so excited about her recent engagement to Justin Timberlake (and who wouldnt be?) that she time traveled back to 1902 to pick out her wedding dress.I'm just not sure why she's wearing it to the Golden Globes. 2.) Kelly MacDonald - you are amazing on Boardwalk Empire. You just look awful though. 3.) Emily Gould - Homeland's housewife... why are you dressed like a call girl brought on a trip to Monte Carlo? 4.) Missi Pyle - ??? when did you start doing real movies?

1.) Busy Philips... I can't even begin right now. 2.) Sarah Michelle Gellar and Piper Perabo - what, the f*ck, whereyou guys thinking? 3.) Connie Britton - this is a dressy kind of occasion. you shoulve rsvp'ed no to the bbq you came from before you arrived if you weren't going to have time to change.

1.) Julie Bowen - not only do you look horrible, but you annoy me, a lot. 2.) Laura Linney - this is ugly. 3.) Natalie Portman - too plain. 4.) Tina Fey - I love you so much. Why the puffy hair and ugly gown?

Madonna didn't look as gross and dead as she usualy does, so that good I guess. But the one glove and cheap-looking chunky cross necklace just made the dress look worse.

Sharon!? Why???I love you so much. I adore you... what is this?

On with the show……

One of the first shots which led to one of my first thoughts of the show was “Look how amazing Nicole Kidman and Harrison Ford look together. Must better than her shrimpy little husband and his girlfriend… whats her name?

Here come the awkward moments… Johnny Depp can make most moments awkward (and yet still so sexy) but this was uber weird.

Whats worse than Adam Levine behind a mic? Jimmy Fallon behind the same mic. I absolutely can not stand either of these guys and NBC thought it would be just fab to stick them on stage together. Jimmy was clearly auditioning for next year’s hosting job and doing what he does best: not be funny.

Here are some of the night’s winners:

Claire Danes and Kate Winslet both picked up awards.

George Clooney with his beautiful girlfriend for the year Stacey Keibler and Michelle Williams

Homeland, a show I LOVE, won for Best TV Drama.

Morgan Freeman was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievment award by Dame Helen Mirren and Sydney Poitier

I must include this little gem from Morgan’s time spent on The Electric Company.

some not so surprising winners: Steven Speilberg and Meryl Street (who at least pretended to be shocked and then admitted she had a speech prepared when she realized she forgot her glasses.)

Lots of great fashion! Lots of semi-good talent! Some deserved awards. Lots of awkward moments and a crap-load of photo-bombing… did anyone else notice? Celebs were creeping into each others camera time all through the night… it was hilarious.

If you follow me on twitter, then you know how much I love a good excuse to live tweet all my nastey little opnions of red carpet coverage, award shows and other big events. Follow me and read them all next time! @xGingerKate

2011 MTV Movie Awards

Tonight were the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. Broadcast Live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, the show was hosted by SNL’s Jason Sudeikis.

Ok, it’s no surprise that Saturday Night Live hasn’t been funny for the last 6 years at least. Every cast member is horrible. However, occasionally, an SNL cast member can actually be funny. This definitely was not the case with Jason Sudeikis. He-was-horrible. His jokes were stale. Yes, Jason, it is terrible that MTV, Music Television, doesn’t play music videos anymore… but the joke is played out. You’re lame. Yes, Jason, MTV will be broadcasting the ceremony over-and-over-and-over… happens every year, however your paycheck should be adequate and that joke is also old. Oh and Jason, you’re little bit on the piano was a complete f*cking waste of time… just stop doing what you (don’t) do… go get a job.

Most of the people in attendance fly way under my give-a-sh*t rader, but there were a few moments worth watching for as well as some pretty well-dressed ladies:

Emma Stone, who is always one of my favorites, looked fabulous.
And she’s back to Ginger!
Never usually one of my favorites, Kristen Stewart looked amazing!
I loved the mini dress covered in safety pins and the amazing black pumps.
Her soft hair and makeup worked really well with the totally rock-and-roll fashions she was rocking.
But nobody can ever look better than Emma Watson!
Every time I see her she looks completely fab.
I mean, come on, look at her! She’s adorable!
She made the appearance at this years awards to premier an extended trailer to this summer’s
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2.

But, of course, no award shoe would be complete without those dressed absolutely terrible:

Amanda Bynes. Didn’t you retire? You should probably stick to that.
Leighton Meester. Gross. I’m so disappointed.

But leave it Jim Carrey to out do everyone. The funnyman donned a green suit onto which various images were projected. However, is Jim Carrey still funny? I’m pretty sure he’s not.

Ok, I don’t get the Bieber thing… his videos aren’t played. His songs aren’t played… so…. how do people even know who he is? Album sales alone? Because theres this thing called UTorrent Tweens, that means you don’t have to pay for your (sh*tty) music.

But ok, he’s a teen idol… but what the f*ck is with the Johnny Depp-esque surprise appearance? I’m sorry, is MTV the WRONG venue for Justin Bieber? What a little tool.

The one moment I was kid of looking forward to was seeing Reese Witherspoon accept this year’s Generation Award. … … … I’m pretty sure she was toe-up wasted. But I love her anyway.

And, bringing home the only award for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Tom Felton won this year’s Best Villain award again.Yay #TeamPotter!

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…

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2010

Last night was the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. I hunted down pics of some of my favorite looks and moments.

Adrian Lima kicked off the show in this totally rock and roll, black and red, skull cap-sleeved number! I loved! Adriana Lima has been my long-time favorite Angel, and this year, she is definitely the big dawg around Vicki’s.

However, I think my new favorite Angel is a toss-up between the sexy Alessandra Ambrosio and the adorable Erin Heatherton. Both are seen here in beautiful pieces from the Wild Things segment.

Chanel Iman donned her first pair of wings at this year’s show and anyone who watched saw how honored she was. Jessica Stam and Izabel Goulart.

Lindsay Ellingson from the Country Girl segment. Erin again. and Flavia de Oliveira walking while Akon performed.

Katy Perry put on a good show, nothing amazing, but it was just as fun and flirty as Victoria’s Secret. She performed Fireworks early on in the show and then later a medley of Teenage Dream, Hot and Cold, and California Girls... you know, the ones you’ve been hearing way too much all year.

Just as she opened the show, Adriana Lima closed the show with that $2 Million Dollar Bombshell Bra.

And then they all bounced around with all the[ir] huge balloons bouncing about the entire venue.

Last night was also the 78th lighting ceremony of the tree in Rockefeller Center in New York City. The tree is a 74 foot tall Norway Spruce.

And… Today, Reese Witherspoon got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! I love Reese and I’m so excited she got a star! She even posed with Bruiser! and she looked fantastic too! So adorable.
