I am speaking of course of Round 1 of the 2010 awards show season, The Golden Globes. First of all let’s just all admit the obvious and get it out of the way – we all watch awards shows for one reason and one reason only: for the fashion. How much fun is it to sit back in your jammies on your couch and rip apart the wardrobe choices of others? For me, not hard at all. I love it.
If you aren’t into clothing, fashion, or celebrities you might want to leave me now. This post is all glam and nothing more.
MY FAVORITES (OR PLEASE GOD, WHY CAN’T I LOOK LIKE THEM FOR JUST ONE DAY?)
HALLE BERRY – Always amazing, always beautiful, never missteps.
FELICITY HUFFMAN – The arms frighten me a bit, but love, love, love this look.
KATE HUDSON – This gown received mixed reviews, but I adore it. I love the lines. It is like a finely sculpted piece of art. Well done Kate.
DREW BARRYMORE – One of my favorite celebs if for no other reason than her sweet, sincere personality. I love the dress, if only the thingy on the hip wasn’t there. The one on the shoulder adds just the right touch, the one on the hip is just too much.
SIGOURNEY WEAVER – I have to admit I am not a fan of emerald green, however the Avatar actress looks so elegant and gorgeous in this gown. I love the lines and silhouette (Oh gawd, I think I need a Project Runway intervention STAT).
TAYLOR LAUTNER – One word: HAWT!! Oh wait. Did he turn 18 yet? No? Damn, never mind.
CHLOE SEVIGNY – Wow! I bet she is kicking herself today for her acceptance speech last night. Fame hasn’t gone to her head or anything!? Yikes. Anyhoo, I just love this dress. My favorite part is the side of the gown, which of course you could see when she was walking to the stage, but isn’t so obvious here. My first thought was: “cool” design.
AMY POEHLER – So pretty. So simply elegant. So RED. Love it!
PENELOPE CRUZ – If I was a guy, she’d be the one.
TONI COLLETTE – How awesome does Toni Collette look? She’s come a long way since “Muriel’s Wedding”.
HMMMM??? NOT SO MUCH
ANNA PAQUIN – Um, it kinda looks like she was out back playing with my kids in the leaf pile. Wearing velcro.
ZOE ZALDANA – I am loving the top of this gown, but below the hips it is a hot mess.
HEIDI KLUM – One day you are in, and the next day you are out. Heidi, my schnitzel, you are out.
MICKEY ROURKE – I think he took a day off from workin’ on the farm to visit the neighboring Bunny Ranch.
RITA WILSON – Rita, Rita, can I please have my grandmother’s tablecloth back? Thanks, it would mean a lot.
NICOLE KIDMAN – By far she is one of my favorite actresses, but really? Haven’t we seen this tired, pale, champagne-colored look before from the stunning Aussie?
FERGIE – Moonlighting as a Bratz Doll these days.
PATRICIA ARQUETTE – No. No. No. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
JANE LYNCH – “Not with Miss Ellen’s portieres, not while I got breath in my body!”
WHAT IS WITH THE HAIR? ISN’T THAT SO 2007?
BLACK SEEMED TO BE THE BIG

Um, what is Julia wearing? Looks like she’s hitting up a midday cocktail party at Flava Flav’s. Not the red carpet.
(Above, clockwise from top left: Julianne Moore, Julie Bowen, Kate Winslet, Olivia Wilde, Marion Cotillard, Lea Michele).
Julianne Moore? No, no, no! Kate Winslet? Divine.
WHAT? THIS OLD THING? IT’S JUST SOMETHING I HAD IN MY CLOSET FROM “SENIOR PROM” OR “THAT TIME I WAS A BRIDESMAID IN MY GIRLFRIEND’S WEDDING”.
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS (as in the “World of glamorous stars” and the “Netherworld”.
CHER & CHRISTINA AGUILERA
And last but not least: THE “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?” AWARD:
TINA FEY – a.k.a Mary Poppins
MARIAH CAREY – Um. Didn’t your Momma ever teach you that your boobs shouldn’t be bigger than your head?
Go ahead. Take a good look. Yep, they’re bigger.
Well, there you have it. My super long homage to
