Golden Globes Awards 2011

Yay! It's awards season again which means lots of bitching and fawning over the celebs dresses, one of my favourite past-times as you might well know from previous posts.

I'm going to leap right in. After all, who cares that Ricky Gervais ripped the pee out of some of Hollywood's finest? (Err, I do! I don't even like Gervais but it's funny all the same to see the celebs having the smug smiles wiped of their faces. That's entertainment folks!).

So, hits and misses....I actually don't have that many misses so I'll start with those first.  [Edit: Scrap that, I have SHEDLOADS of misses!)

Tilda Swinton. Oof. That's all I'm saying.

I want to love Helena Bonham Carter here, I do, because in fact I love her a lot but that doesn't detract from the fact that she's as mad as a box of frogs and this outfit is ker-razy.

I'm aware I'm probably alone in my dislike of a) this outfit and b) Halle Berry in any outfit but it's my blog and so I say it's a miss.

"Jenny from the block" Lopez manages to look quite harsh here? Me no likey.

Cripes January Jones, daring dress. I'm not keen and also on every photo I have seen of her she looked pig-miserable. Chin up!

Julianne Moore! Too frumpy, too pink, TOO CREASED!

First one of my Glee girls and somehow Naya Rivera manages to make everything she wears look slutty. That's no mean feat.

Does Christina Hendricks mean to style herself on Jessica Rabbit? The hair, the dress, the colour... Yes, she has killer curves but this dress makes her look a bit top heavy and funny around the shoulder area.

Could Michelle Williams look any more frumpy?

Now the hits;

Anne Hathaway - has she not grown into the most amazing beauty and great actress? Love her and love this dress. Super-sexy back.

Maybe a bit boring and safe but quite elegant and understand, Carrie Underwood looks good!

I'm no Zeta-Jones fan but I actually love this dress and I adore the colour, what a magnificent green. Not sure about the hair though.

Surprise! Yes I actually like this look on Christina Aguilera. I'm very fond of a lacy dress and she looks way better here than she did on her recent X Factor performance.

Another Glee girl, Dianna Agron. So pretty and demure. Love it.

Elizabeth Moss working the green as well, this dress is lush and she looks hot!

Safe old black but Eva Longoria (have we dropped the Parker bit now?) always hits the right note and looks amazing.

Okay, so Hayden Panettiere had a slight wardrobe malfunction which I am sure didn't look as bad if you were right there. Those darn camera flashes. That doesn't detract from the fact that this is a top dress.

Did you see Glee this week? The Brittany/Britney episode? Heather Morris has a figure I'd KILL for and she looks great in this dress.

You may know I love Heidi Klum, it's true. I think she looks great here working the seventies vibe that is going to be everywhere this Spring. Hubba hubba.

Jenna Ushkowitz is probably one of the more overlooked Glee girls but she's gorgeous and I love this dress on her.

Daring colour on Kyra Sedgwick and I think it works. Love the style of the dress too.

Lea Michele. I feel like I really should hate this but I don't. She looks happy, pretty and like she's having immense fun.

I'm not entirely sure about this dress but I do like the colour and Mandy Moore has grown up to be such a gorgeous gorgeous girl so it's a hit from me.

Blooming 'eck, Natalie Portman looks swell! (Pun-tastic, huh?) I wish I looked nearly this good in pregnancy.

 Scarlett Johansson almost blends in with this dress but it's beautiful, as is she.

Love, love, love all this sparkle on Amber Riley.

And finally, I've got a few maybes as I just couldn't decide. Help me?

I just can't ignore the fact that Angelina Jolie irritates the hell out of me. I like the colour of this dress but she looks very angular.

I like Sandra Bullock's dress. I hate Sandra Bullocks hair.

I do kind of like Olivia Wilde's dress in a kind of Barbie way.

I adore Jayma Mays but her face/make-up scares me a little. I can't get past that.

Yeah, yeah Nicole Kidman always looks good but she also always looks the same.

So what do you think? Do you agree with my views? Who did you love and who did you hate?


  1. Mostly agree, but I really didn't like Natalie Portman's dress for some reason - ok, it's the giant red rose. Ick.

    Helena's outfit was great - I love that she really doesn't care about being glamourous and just wears what she likes.

    Heather Morris' dress was absolutely stunning - love it! So simple and elegant.

  2. Just one thought on January Jones. The face, the hair, it´s all Betty Draper, but the dress just isn´t, and that´s what irritates me. Hate the dress, it´s just ugly, and yeah, you´re right, she does look miserable!
    Love Catherine Zeta-Jones though, the dress is stunning, I´d LOVE to wear it myself. she looks so amazing!
