Golden Globes 2013: The Highlights

By

Did anyone watch the Golden Globes Sunday night? Award season is upon us, and I couldn’t be more excited! Here is my list of “favorites”, “bests” and “mosts” if you didn’t get a chance to watch or are just interested in what I have to say! Haha! Hope everyone is having a Happy Tuesday!

Favorite Dresses: 

Claire Danes in Atelier Versace (Image via here)

Claire Danes was absolutely stunning as usual, and she was clearly glowing having just had her baby son a month ago. Claire won Best Actress for TV Drama, and had a fantastic speech. I think she’s great!

Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera (image via here)

This dress is definitely unconventional and even over the top, but it won me over as I watched her interview on the red carpet. The structure of the dress is perfection and the floral print with the gray background gave it what she described as a modern feel. She definitely took a risk with this one, and I think it paid off!

Taylor Swift in Donna Karan Atelier (image via here)

I had to include Taylor Swift on the list because she has been impressing me lately with her mature fashion choices. Her normal go-to would be a princess-cut so she totally surprised me with the structure of this dress and with the color, too. Stunning!

Katharine McPhee in Olivier Theyskens for Theory (image via here)

I normally don’t go for super low-cut dresses, but Katharine McPhee was absolutely gorgeous on the red carpet. She wears this gown so well. My vote for best dressed of the night!

Favorite nod to the Queen: Jennifer Lawrence

Everyone knows Meryl Streep is the Queen of the biz (with 17 Oscar nods and 27 Golden Globe nods so far). Sadly she was home with the flu, but when Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress in a Comedy Movie for her role in Silver Lining’s Playbook, she gave the best shout-out ever with her reference from the movie First Wives’ Club. Anyone recognize it?

Best Speech: Adele

Adele won Best Original Song for Skyfall, and she had the funnest speech of them all!

Most hilarious presenters: Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig

There’s not much to say here. This improv had me laughing out loud!

Best Zinger: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler on Taylor Swift’s constant relationship changes

These ladies co-hosting were the highlight of my night. They were so legitimately funny, and I’m not the only one who thought so. The ratings were up for the first time in six years thanks to them!

Biggest Surprise: Ben Affleck wins Best Director for Argo

Normally the same people that are nominated for Golden Globes go on to be nominated in the same category at the Oscars. So I was super surprised when Ben Affleck didn’t even garner a nomination at the Oscars for directing Argo. What a snub! What a surprise when he actually took home the award in the same category at the Golden Globes. Usually the winner of the Golden Globes is a shoo-in for the Academy Award. Who knows who will win it now! Congrats to Ben Affleck though; totally well-deserved!
