Golden Globes 2014: Part Grand Finale

Leonardo di Caprio deserved the win for "Wolf of Wall Street". Despite countless nominations, this is only his second major win. He is such a hard worker. A total nerd really. You really have to be if you are willing to play a mentally challenged teen at such a young age (What's eating Gilbert Grape?). Think about it. Plus, he always wears headphones during radio interviews. A sure sign you take your job seriously. Nothing phoned in with Leo. Bravo bravo bravo.
I would however like to register a complaint with your mentor and director: Marty, old chap. Three hours? Really? Two and a half wouldn't have been enough to drive the excessiveness home?
 

Julie Bowen in Caroline Herrera. I've always loved the clash pairing red cherry against plum purple brings. It totally works, no? Well, we think so. The design of the dress is modern (capped sleeves, modest neckline with the streamlined skirt. No unnecessary flounces and trains) The bodice in velvet is just right with the rest in heavy satin. Love this gown. Hair and assecories match nicely.
(Thank heaven the Aghan hound hair look is out. Make sure Sarah Jessica Parker gets the memo please.)
Ms. Dunham's hair looked very "It happened One Night". We won't get into the whole lemon squeeze hing she's got going. Zac Posen: you need to modernize. Or provide bigger sizes.
I really hate that obnoxious, wailing Chris de Burgh song. So I am going to go with Crimson & Roses as an appropriate metaphor for the delight of red we saw last night. From left to right: Edie Falco in you don't really want to know, do you?, Amy Adams in Valentino, Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren, Julie Delpy in beaucoup de red, Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Narciso Rodriquez.
 
Crazy lady acceptance speech courtesy of Jacqueline Bisset. The suspense was suspenseful. Even the trip to the stage was suspenseful. Will she make it before the 'cut it now' music starts? When the hook music did set in, she ignored it anyway giving the producers in the control room a mild case of damp forehead. What are they going to do? Push her off? Had they tried, Ms. Bisset would have put up a fight. "Go to hell and don't come back" was a punch line worth waiting for.

Emma's dress does better live. When she walked in to talk about Woody Allen, she looked so pretty. Just like the Princess and the pea. On this picture, it gives the impression one of her wicked stepsisters made an unsuccessful attempt to rip it off her. It looked so delightful in real life.

We like it. So there.

I wonder who came up with the idea of pairing a shirt with a strapless gown. Sorry. But it's just weird. The formal 'do is very flattering, pretty. But it doesn't match. Full make up regalia in a bathrobe. Weird.

Isn't she pretty? Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful? Stevie Wonder popped into my head for some reason. I have no clue who Sarah Hyland* is but she definitely warrants the first two lines of the song. (Obviously, we must withhold judgement on the 'wonderful' until we know what we're talking about.)

Braids, chiffon, movement, peaches, demure. Delightful.

*no. I do not watch Modern family. Obviously.
