The Golden Globes: What I loved, didn’t love, or didn’t care about

I’m late to the party on this. By now the Golden Globes are old news, but you know I love my celebrities and I just have to weigh in on a few things.

Loved: I know Ricky Gervais’ humor is not for everyone, but he's one of my favorites, so of course I thought he made a fantastic host. His intro for Mel Gibson was brilliant.

Didn’t love: Somebody should have a sit down with Chloe Sevigny and tell her the living room curtains are not suitable attire for the red carpet. And while you’re at it, see if you can get her to change her last name to something people can pronounce.

Didn’t love: Speaking of fashion disasters, what the hell was Tina Fey thinking with the June Cleaver on prom night get-up? Hey, I’m the first to admit my entire wardrobe is from Ross Dress-for-Less, but Jesus H, don't show up at the Golden Globes looking like Mary Poppins meets Glinda the Good Witch.

Loved: But on the positive side, how stunning was Helen Mirren? Again this year, she knocks it out of the park. What a bod! And at 64, what an inspiration. She could teach the younger women a few things, that’s for sure.

Didn’t care: I hate to admit this, but I have zero appreciation for men’s fashion. George Clooney could be wearing a suit off the rack from Sears and I would never know the difference. I never notice what guys are wearing; in fact, I check out women 100 times more than men.

When I look at men, I notice their eyes, smile, and hands and that’s about it. I don’t even notice facial hair (on men—on women it kind of stands out). Seriously, I can’t even tell you if Mike had a beard or not Saturday night. Sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn’t; I can’t keep track. But the eyes, smile and hands… I always know what’s going on there.

So anyway, I have no opinion about that male stars were wearing at the Golden Globes. Besides, I think men look best in jeans. You can’t really check out their ass in suits, you know? Girls, what do you notice about guys?

One last thought: Am I the only one who wishes Beverly d’Angelo would do something so she could get nominated for something so we can see her all decked out? Yeah, I thought so.

Helen Mirren always looks good. Linda Fey looks good when she doesn't try to over dress, kind of like prom night.

You and I really *are* sisters from different misters.

I literally said these exact same things about these exact same people to my co-worker the next day!

Get outta my head, lady!

There was a blog meme several years back asking, "If a movie were made about your life who would you want to play you?"

Despite being a male in his 30s my answer was, Helen Mirren. And the thing is, she's such a damned good actress she could probably still pull it off!

Helen Mirren is just all class. Dresses beautifully and embraces her aging beauty as one should, with grace.

I love both Ricky Gervais and Helen Mirren. Hey, maybe we could write something for both of them to do together. Along with a dressed down Tina Fey. (Seriously.)

Josie said...

Me too - Guys hands do it for me.

That last sentence of yours, Josie, made my day!

I don't care much for the awards but I do love looking at the fashions. I agreed with your room drapes for sure!

Helen Mirren is gorgeous for 64! I loved her dress too!

Yeah, Helen is classy! Love her style.

Tina should stay behind the camera and write. Really she's just a typecast actress now.

LOL at you check out women way more than men. Ditto! I'm always sizing them up to see how cute/pretty they are and how I rate in comparison. It's a sickness and sadly, I lose a lot. But I bet they can't match my wit and humor. :-)
