We had a blast last night on our Facebook Golden Globes viewing party. It was a good show. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler should always host awards show, because they were fabulous. I really wish they would have allotted more time for them. Their opening was great. They had some great zingers in there, especially, the comment about James Cameron. It made me roar with laughter.
There were not any big train wrecks last night, I thought. I felt a lot of the acceptance speeches came from the heart. I really did enjoy Anne Hathaway’s acceptance speech. I really loved her shout out to Sally Field.
I am so happy Argo got the recognition I thought it deserved. I was happy for Ben Affleck, and his director win. Even though, he was nervous I enjoyed his acceptance speech. I thought it was very humble.
Over all I was 14/25 on my predictions. I was really surprised Lincoln didn’t win more. Do not count out Christopher Waltz for that Oscar. That was the biggest surprise for me. I thought Tommy Lee Jones was a going to win. With Argo and Les Miserables winning best pictures in their respective categories and Quentin Tarantino winning for best screenplay for Django in Chains. The Oscar best movie is very, very hard to predict. Neither Golden Globe best movie has an Oscar director nomination. We will see how the rest of the award season goes, to see if we can predict an Oscar winner.
What were some of your favorite moments from last night show? Did your predictions win?
I thought last night was a great night for fashion. There were more dresses that I liked. There really wasn’t anyone that totally looked horrid. I thought on a few people the dress didn’t match the occasion. In other cases, I found that there was only a particular element I didn’t like about the dress.
The trends I saw last night were natural flowing hair, dark bold eyes and light lip and cheeks. The color trend for dresses was a pale almost nude pink. One actress called it “ballet pink.” I feel that it was successful on some, but not on others skin complexion. I also noticed a lot of dresses that had a sheer or lace over lay. Again, in worked in some cases, but not in others.
These are the three ladies on my best dressed list. It’s not just the dress, but also the makeup and styling is just perfection.
Claire Danes wore this simple, but so elegant Versace red dress. Everything was so perfect the hair and makeup. I just love her simple style. She makes simple look so stunning.
Anne Hathaway stunned in a Chanel two piece gown. I know a lot of people said it was predictable. I don’t care. If I could make predictable look like that, I would wear it ever day. The make up the styling was all perfect. She is such a classic beauty.
Kerry Washington really stood out to me in Mui Mui and Chopard jewlery. I love the color of this dress on her complexion and I loved the beading of this dress. She looked very modern.
I am very excited to watch all the fashion recap shows tonight. To see what the “experts” thought. I am also looking forward to the SAG Awards in two weeks.
