Golden Globes

I Play Fashion Police For A Day

The news about the Golden Globe winners were abuzz the whole week but it wasn’t the only award the stars were after or rather avoiding. I’m talking about the best and worst dressed, entertainment shows all have their own but I’m exercising my fashion eye and here are my picks for best:

5. Halle Berry


My initial reaction is she looks amazing, that neckline is beautiful. People were commenting about the shortness of the skirt and the slit but I think its just the right amount of sexy.

4. Emma Stone


The color suits her so much and the simplicity makes her stand out from a crowd of overworked dresses.

3. Olivia Wilde


Oh my gosh I gasped when I saw this dress from Marchesa. Its big, bold, perfect for the red carpet and I love the statement shoes!

2. Anne Hathaway


In this dress by Armani Prive, she just shines. Its sleek and elegant, I love the puffy shoulders and its backless actually – love it.

1. Angelina Jolie


I know she’s beautiful as is but look at her, she’s so effortless and regal. This Versace dress sparkles during the live carpet show and its just amazing. Even the ‘boxy’ style works for her.

Moving on to the worst, in which I crossed off Helena Bonham Carter and Tilda Swinton technically because I think they always make this list anyway.

5. Julianne Hough


The dress is not so bad but that neckpiece is just too much especially for a petite girl like her. I feel like its swallowing her, the dress is wearing her not the other way around.

4. January Jones


Okay I love the color on her and her hair is beautiful but that top is just wrong. Its not too much skin but its a little off for my liking.

3. Scarlett Johansson


She looks like she aged 10 years! And she lost her figure, I don’t like the hair either. This dress is just way too old.

2. Michelle Williams


Okay this floral dress from Versace I totally don’t get. I know she’s sweet and all but this is a fashion miss.

1. Heidi Klum


What the hell happened to her? She’s a supermodel so there’s no excuse. Its a mess and a bit inappropriate for a formal event. Its actually painful to look at.

So that’s that. What do you think of my list?

2011 Globe Noms Announced

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association just released the list of nominees for the January 2011 Golden Globe Awards ceremony to be hosted by funny brit Ricky Gervais (again). Glee & The King’s Speech both lead with the most noms: 5 & 7, respectively. HBO garnered 12 noms all in all. Here’s the rundown:

BEST MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA
• BLACK SWAN
• THE FIGHTER
• INCEPTION
• THE KING’S SPEECH
• THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Yes! 2 of my fave movies this year & personally, the best as well, were nominated. Of course I’m talking about Inception & The Social Network. Critics are buzzing though with the movie that’s been predicted to be a staple on the Oscars, Colin Firth’s The King’s Speech. We’ll see.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA
• HALLE BERRY: FRANKIE AND ALICE
• NICOLE KIDMAN: RABBIT HOLE
• JENNIFER LAWRENCE: WINTER’S BONE
• NATALIE PORTMAN: BLACK SWAN
• MICHELLE WILLIAMS: BLUE VALENTINE
Much controversy has surrounded the films Blue Valentine & Black Swan, the former for getting an R rating for a supposed oral sex scene between Ryan Gosling’s & Michelle Williams’ characters which later was changed to an NC-17 rating. Black Swan, for Natalie Portman’s & Mila Kunis’ onscreen kiss & the dark theme of the movie. But I didn’t realize these were critically acclaimed, I guess it helps since I don’t know anything about Nicole’s nor Halle’s movies.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA
• JESSE EISENBERG: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
• COLIN FIRTH: THE KING’S SPEECH
• JAMES FRANCO: 127 HOURS
• RYAN GOSLING: BLUE VALENTINE
• MARK WAHLBERG: THE FIGHTER
I’d say Jesse Eisenberg! But we have James Franco, who’s realistic take on the true story of a man who had to amputate his arm to escape death garnered a nod. Mark Wahlberg is also in for the said to be strong Oscar contender, The Fighter. Close call.

BEST MOTION PICTURE – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
• ALICE IN WONDERLAND
• BURLESQUE
• THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT
• RED
• THE TOURIST
Its kinda funny that Burlesque was even nominated, oh well I can take that but The Tourist for Comedy? I’m guessing The Kids Are All Right will get this one.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
• ANNETTE BENING: THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT
• ANNE HATHAWAY: LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS
• ANGELINA JOLIE: THE TOURIST
• JULIANNE MOORE: THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT
• EMMA STONE: EASY A
Its great that Anne was nominated since she probably shot the entire film naked but its even greater that Emma Stone gets a nod for Easy A!

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
• JOHNNY DEPP: ALICE IN WONDERLAND
• JOHNNY DEPP: THE TOURIST
• PAUL GIAMATTI: BARNEY’S VERSION
• JAKE GYLLENHAAL: LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS
• KEVIN SPACEY: CASINO JACK
Of course Johnny Depp scores 2 noms in the same category but more so I think Jake Gyllenhaal’s butt getting nominated is an even bigger deal.

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
• DESPICABLE ME
• HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
• THE ILLUSIONIST
• TANGLED
• TOY STORY 3
Tough one, but I have to choose Toy Story though I have yet to watch Tangled.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
• AMY ADAMS: THE FIGHTER
• HELENA BONHAM CARTER: THE KING’S SPEECH
• MILA KUNIS: BLACK SWAN
• MELISSA LEO: THE FIGHTER
• JACKI WEAVER: ANIMAL KINGDOM

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
• CHRISTIAN BALE: THE FIGHTER
• MICHAEL DOUGLAS: WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS
• ANDREW GARFIELD: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
• JEREMY RENNER: THE TOWN
• GEOFFREY RUSH: THE. KING’S SPEECH
Hooray for Andrew Garfield! He should bag this one.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
• BOARDWALK EMPIRE (HBO)
• DEXTER (SHOWTIME)
• THE GOOD WIFE (CBS)
• MAD MEN (AMC)
• THE WALKING DEAD (AMC)
I guess the biggest snub this year was Lost, who had their series finale this year. I think a lot of people will react to this one. But anyways I see no reason why Mad Men wouldn’t win as they always had.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
• JULIANNA MARGULIES: THE GOOD WIFE
• ELISABETH MOSS: MAD MEN
• PIPER PERABO: COVERT AFFAIRS
• KATEY SAGAL: SONS OF ANARCHY
• KYRA SEDGWICK: THE CLOSER

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
• STEVE BUSCEMI: BOARDWALK EMPIRE
• BRYAN CRANSTON: BREAKING BAD
• MICHAEL C. HALL: DEXTER
• JON HAMM: MAD MEN
• HUGH LAURIE: HOUSE

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
• 30 ROCK (NBC)
• THE BIG BANG THEORY (CBS)
• THE BIG C (SHOWTIME)
• GLEE (FOX)
• MODERN FAMILY (ABC)
• NURSE JACKIE (SHOWTIME)
I really don’t get Nurse Jackie but please, please give others a shot aside from 30 Rock like Glee or Modern Family. Whatever happened to Desperate Housewives or Grey’s Anatomy?

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES -COMEDY OR MUSICAL
• TONI COLLETTE: UNITED STATES OF TARA

• ERIC STONESTREET: MODERN FAMILY
• DAVID STRATHAIRN: TEMPLE GRANDIN
I’m biased on the acting nods I think the Glee actors deserve those awards.

Hopefully some of my faves do win. Who’s yours?

I’ve been busy….

It’s been two crazy, frustrating weeks. I just didn’t think I could get through to it. Work stuff yet again. Anyways, enough about me. What had happened since then? A lot. There was the Golden Globes kicking off the awards season with Slumdog Millionaire and 30 Rock pretty much bagging every award for movie and tv categories, respectively. Kate Winslet also won for two best actress categories and was so grateful she gushed and constantly reminded herself to calm down during her acceptance speeches. Check the official webpage of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the complete list of winners. (Click here.)

 

Then there was the plane accident at the Hudson River or should I say miracle since all of the 150 plus passengers and crew got out alive. And this was all because of the courage and skills of the pilot Mr. Chelsey Sullenberger as he navigated the plane so graceful you wouldn’t think the plane was actually crashing. Birds were apparently scattered throughout the area and got into the engine. I couldn’t imagine what people may have been thinking as they saw the plane go down and pass by, what flying that low within the city? There’s only one thing that crosses my mind, 9/11. Thank God, it wasn’t.

 

American Idol Season 8! Yup, with a lot of changes in store for fans. We’ve finally met the new judge Kara that is just as, let’s just say straightforward as Simon and sweet as Paula. Finally met his match, eh? It’s going to be much more interesting, especially during Hollywood week and Eliminations week. Can’t wait! It just sucks that I have to wait for the re-runs to catch it! Since I don’t know, maybe because my work habits are taking over my whole life!

 

Finally, who could’ve missed the inauguration of the first black president of America? For the first time, I think, it was aired here in the Philippines through live broadcast. Actually, the whole world covered the event. It was crazy. Obama is definitely reaching celebrity status! I don’t mean it in a bad way. And Michelle Obama, fashion icon with all the buzz about her first dress as the First Lady. It was also a bit funny when Obama got his oath all wrong don’t you think? But I do know we can expect a lot of great things from this guy. All I can say is: Buti pa sila! Ang Pilipinas kaya?
