This awards season you are getting to see even more of Adele. Normally you would only see her at the Grammys or Billboard Music Awards, but thanks to her killer pipes and James Bond, she is making appearances at the Golden Globes and the Oscars. While her look is pretty tame compared to the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry, Adele knows how to knock 'em dead with a few little details. Some fashionistas out there feel that she is playing it "too safe," but I like to look at as her knowing what works for her, and what doesn't.
On the night of the Golden Globe Awards I watched the news as my husband cooked lemon garlic pork chops and mustard greens. Our plan was a quiet dinner. We had no intention of watching the awards show; it’s really not our thing. But during a commercial break from the news, I caught a glimpse of the red carpet interviews....more
I love award shows. I SOOO look forward to the award season, that kicks off with the Golden Globes. I'ts about the love of fashion and the love of movies and t.v. (at least for me). So, let's start off with the fashion hits and misses. (I'll have my winners hits and misses tomorrow)....more
Jodie Foster came out during her Golden Globe speech last night.Twitter and Facebook exploded as the LGBTQ community dissected her every word, gesture and the fact that it took her 50 years (well, say 30.) The straight community pretty much said "what the hell is she talking about?" and/or "wait, Jodie Foster wasn't out yet?"There's no "right" way for a celebrtiy to come out. A rambling speech on live television is one approach. An obituary like Sally Ride is another. People Magazine. 60 Minutes. Barbara Walters. New York Times. Sometimes we cheer, sometimes we jeer. ...more
The 70th Annual Golden Globes did not disappoint. (Well, at least not for the winners and those of us watching from the couch...so many upsets!) Amy Poehler and Tina Fey may well go down as the most successful hosts in the history of the show -- the jokes were on point, the deliveries were killer, and the chemistry between those two ladies is impossible to deny (although was it just me, or did Kristin Wiig seem just the tiniest bit icy?)...more
This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. As usual, they did it bright and early -- 5 a.m. on the West Coast or a more respectable 8 a.m. on the East Coast. And they didn't take all day either, like the New York Film Critics Circle. We like the speedy nominations....more
The Emmys had us clamouring for it via twitter, and it appears that the Hollywood Foreign Press has answered our prayers. Former SNL "Weekend Update" co-anchors Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will squeeze all four of their feet in to Ricky Gervais' notorious shoes to host the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards this coming January....more
Did you watch the Golden Globes on Sunday night? After all the hype leading up to Ricky Gervais' second time as the "naughty" host who would say anything, I thought his performance was rather tame. Over the years, the Golden Globes have started to surpass the Academy Awards as the live television event where anything might happen. The setting is less formal, and with all the stars swigging champagne around dinner tables, the potential for cringe-inducing (or heartfelt) comments is huge....more
