There are only a handful of things that make my pop culture junkie heart swell more than the span of awards shows in the winter. It's the time of year where we get to watch the celebrities we love (and love to hate––Taylor Swift, I'm talking to you) walk the red carpet in luxurious couture gowns, give hilarious interviews (Jennifer Lawrence, I'm talking to you) and listen to their train wreck acceptance speeches (Jacqueline Bisset, I'm talking to you and the bottle (or two) of wine you had before the show).
The Golden Globes was the first show of the season last night at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.Tina Fey + Amy Poehler were back as sophomore hosts and there was no slump in sight. The two comediennes were as beautiful as they were funny throughout the entire show. (Refer to my tweet: "All of Tina + Amy's looks tonight are FUH. LAW. LESS. flawless enough that a third syllable is needed.) The opening monologue was one for the books! My favorite jokes involved the camera cutting to Jennifer Lawrence as Amy Poehler, Tina saying that the movie Gravity shows what lengths George Clooney will go to to get out of being alone with a woman his own age and the two 'calling out' Julia-Louis Dryfus and how she chose to sit in the film section of the theatre and cutting to JLD in sunglasses smoking an e-cigarette while they hosts called out, "Hi, Julia. Hi. Remember us?" TV gold here, people.
On to fashion: there were a few trends emerging on the red carpet last night, as well as a few (THANK YOU!) risk takers. Check out the photos of trends and my favorite looks below and see which you like best!
Where as Jacqueline Bisset's speech was not so perfect, but it was hilarious. She tried to begin her speech multiple times before she went on and on and talked over the music so much that they turned it off, waited, and turned it back on again! It was definitely a speech everyone will be talking about this season and for seasons to come...
Bisset and a few other winners also had an uncomfortably/awkwardly long walk to the stage last night. I'm convinced seating arrangements at awards shows are directly correlated to 1) your name and what you're being nominated for and 2) how likely they think you are to win and actually need to get to the stage in a timely manner.
Freshman comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine and its star Andy Samberg were big (surprising) winners last night. I was pulling for Modern Family, naturally, and was shocked that it didn't win! I've never seen BNN, so I can't say too much until I do. But really, who isn't obsessed with Phil Dunphy? I guess it was just MoFy's time to "Phil Dun-feat" HIS PUN NOT MINE.
