Let me just say that I love Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. I'm very sad that this was their last year hosting, they have done a great job the past two years. Like many thirty-somethings I believe Amy and Tina could be my best friends and I love that their humor runs the gamut of clever and witty, to down right silly. That being said, and having expected to be rolling on the floor in fits of laughter, I was less than impressed. The intro was great, super funny and all that. But the remaining segments with Tina and Amy lacked their typical charm. Their bit with the "Korean journalist" stretched over three segments, and it was not funny. Very sad indeed.
The show lacked comedy in general. The shows and films in the comedy categories could easily be classified as dramedies and even the acceptance speeches, normally sprinkled with jems of sincere humor, primarily pushed social agendas (race, sexuality, gender issues, etc.). For crying out loud the best comedy series was "Transparent" - what happened to all the comedies like Parks and Rec, or Modern Family? Shows that simply make you laugh.
Maybe I was just disappointed because for the most part I don't regularly watch any of the shows nominated (at least in the comedy category). Movies on the other hand do have a slightly better race this season, but again most push a social agenda rather than being pure entertainment. The two best things that happened last night were 1) Kevin Spacey finally won a Golden Globe after eight nominations, and was funny and cursed during his speech; 2) The Grand Budapest Hotel won for best comedy film - that movie is just wonderful so I was really happy to see it win!
But enough about the show, this blog is really about the fashion! When I look to a red carpet, my best dressed choice has to have these three things in common: the look has to be classic, glamorous, and also a little bit edgy. There were a lot of really beautiful dresses that I liked very much last night, but honestly nothing that I truly loved that was unique but timeless. A good example of something I'm talking about is that amazing Givenchy gown that Cate Blanchett wore to the Oscars.
Even though nothing really made me excited, like I said, there were beautiful gowns. Here are my favorites!
These ladies made my "No" list while I was taking notes, primarily because they were my biggest disappointments fashion wise last night. They usually look so amazing but I sort of hated these dresses.
Oh dear, I'm afraid this post is quite negative. Hate to start the week out on that kind of vibe so let me just say, that although I was not as happy with the Golden Globes as I usually am, I am very excited for a season of red carpet fashion and also the return Fashion Police tonight on E! Can't wait to see how Kathy does on her first night! She'll kill it, I'm sure!
Happy awards season one and all!
