Golden Globes 2014

Let’s be serious, the highlight and main reason why a lot of folks tuned into the Golden Globes is because of these two hilarious ladies.

Tina Fey and Amy PoehlerTina Fey and Amy Poehler are incredible as hosts – their timing, their skits and the fact that they are not afraid to take jabs at the nominees. You can tell the actors like it as they even play along with their jokes; Julia Dreyfus ignoring them and Matt Damon referring to their joke in his presentation. I hope these two always host the show…or at least Tina does.

Amy and Tina

Now, the second reason why we all tune in – the dresses!! Oh and Leo…I tune in to see Leonardo DiCaprio.

Worst Dressed 

Let’s start with Worst Dressed. This year, there were way too many dresses that fit into this category.

Paula PattonPaula, who was the cruel stylist that lied to you and said “Yes, girl! You rocking it!” Fire him/her now! You are too gorgeous to be wrapped up in such a hideous concoction.

Jennifer Lawrence

I love Jennifer Lawrence. She always has the best speeches, her interviews are hilarious and she has a killer smile. But this outfit…I’m sorry. I was disappointed.

Remember that hot red outfit she wore at the Golden Globes a few years back when her mom accidentally hinted that Jen was going to be Katniss in Hunger Games? Gorgeous! This just looks like curtains wrapped around her with black tape.

Kaley Cuoco

Another funny lady that was a complete miss on the red carpet. The silhouette is great but the colouring is off for Kaley Cuoco. Maybe it’s an art piece and I’m just not getting it but for a black tie event, this just fell short of being the glam that is expected for the Globes. Maybe if her hair was up and she had dramatic makeup…maybe.

Zoe Saldana

For all her beauty and elegance, Zoe Saldana’s dress looked like a mess. The dress appeared incomplete, almost as if her two seamstresses quarreled on how to finish the dress and couldn’t decide. Seriously, this has to be a joke right?

Best Dressed

Now they may not have won an award but these ladies were the Best Dressed to me.

Lupita Nyongo

Lupita Nyong’o! Yes Yes Yes! The skin, the lipstick and the DRESS! She flawlessly wore this Ralph Lauren dress with cape and looks so regal and comfortable at the same time. Her beauty is memorable and now this dress will be. 

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale looks like she was painted into this Zuhair Murad dress. On the red carpet she told Carson that the zipper broke while in the car. Not surprised as that dress looks tighter than cling wrap. Nonetheless she looks great. 

Amy Adams

Two tone is a daring move, especially with reds and as a red head. But Amy did a stellar job with this. With her hair pulled back, she pulls off this Valentino dress impeccably.

Kerry Washington

I’m biased with this one. I adore Kerry Washington/Olivia Pope so she wins automatically for me. And she’s preggers! Looking all kinds of cute and glowy. Too bad Scandal didn’t win an award but this outfit is already a winner to me.

Mila KunisWhether it’s her sultry smile or her smokey eye makeup, Mila delivers in this metallic Gucci dress. The halter style with the busy neck piece throws me off a bit but overall its a great dress and she rocked it.

Were there any dresses you loved or hated? Any outfits you wished would never see the light of day again?

    I can’t tune in but I did watch the opening monologue and Tina and Amy KILLED IT again (no surprise there). I loved the joke about George Clooney not being able to be around a woman his own age, I loved the fun fact that the original title of “American Hustle” was “Explosion at the Wig Factory” AHAHA that one killed me. They are too funny and they cover a wide range of actors/actresses so I absolutely loved it.

    How can Cate Blanchett not be on your best dressed list? She is the queen of the red carpet.

    Agree that Lupito was gorgeous, the lips, the dress, the cape….perfection head to toe. She has been killing the red carpet this entire season, excellent taste and really well suited to her body type and skin tone.

    I can’t believe you put my darling love Zoe Saldana on your shit list. She looked IMMACULATE. The dress fit her perfect at every curve and line, only she could have pulled off this look and she looked amazing.

    I can’t wait until all the other Tina and Amy bits get posted online!!!

    BTW have you watched Wolf of Wallstreet? I have yet to.

    Zoe Saldana deserved to be on the shit list! I have no idea what that dress was about, but I agree 100%, she had 2 seamstresses who had 2 VERY different visions.

    Didn’t care for Amy Adams dress and even less for her hair! Really?! What was up with that up-do? I half accepted to see rows of butterfly hair clips from 15 years ago. I go to bed with twists like that so I don’t lose my curls after my hair is styled. No bueno. No bueno a’tall a’tall.

    Olivia Wilde should definitely be on the best dressed list in my opinion. The skin tight, sequence green number was amazing! Im usually not a huge huge fan of preggo ladies wearing skin tight dresses cause I think it looks weird, but she killed it!!

    I loved Kerry Olivia Pope as well but she played it safe. Very reserved, nothing glam, but Im not hating. I stay playing it safe. All black-beige-white erry’thang!

    Yes yes YESSS to all of this. I seriously saw Paula Patton and shook my head. Like you too beautiful to be rocking something that ugly, smdh. Lupita gets AWWWLLLLL the glory, she literally stole the show. I wasn’t moved my Kerry’s dress but she’s gorgeous and the arm candy and belly candy ain’t hurt 😉

    GG’s were comedy for all the drunken presenters and award winners. And J’adore Tina and Amy. Otherwise, quite meh this year.

    a little random but you know this about me… how is Kerri Washington going to shoot her show now as a pregnant woman? Maybe they’ll write in the president as her baby daddy haha

      Now if you were a Scandal watcher, you’d know the show is on hiatus as Kerry is pregnant. But what a plot line twist that would have been if the President was the father’s baby?!
