To sum up my thoughts on the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards from Sunday night- disappointing. I recorded and watched the red carpet and ceremony on Monday, and have been looking at various photos and opinions on the fashion and ceremony.
My first disappointment was in host, Ricky Gervais. After last years slating monologues I had big expectations that once again he would fill the room with gasps as the A-list egos trembled at his feet. This year however, I felt that his jokes weren’t so funny and he had definitely toned down his digs, pandering to the celebs and their egos. Such a shame.
Second, the fashion. Overall I think it was a good night, no total disasters (or as Andre Leon-Talley might say dreckitude) but no one really wowed me either. It was all a little dull.
I think my top picks were: Charlize Theron, Julianna Margulies, Rooney Mara, Sofia Vergara and Salma Hayek.
Oh so close…Zooey Deschanel. I love this girl and her quirky, fresh style but I think the hair was too done and if she’d put it up, it could have really shown off the back. Another almost and fashion crush of mine, Michelle Williams. I like that she tries new things and mixes them with stunning vintage pieces. I loved her dress, the texture and colour but I think the headband was one accessory too many.
And the worst for me was…Sarah Michelle Gellar. It did not work on her or on the red carpet. It was bright but a bit boring, too much fabric and the shape has been done to death.
So all in all- dull and disappointing! I love it when someone gets us talking like January Jones’s 2010 Emmy dress in bright blue. I loved it but it polarised opinions. And I never thought I’d say it but I think I miss Helena Bonham Carter! I want to see mismatched shoes and crazy hair haha that’s what the awards season is about.
Let’s hope that the celebs step up their game for the Oscars in Feb!
