Best and Worst Dressed at the 2019 Golden Globes

 

The stars came out to honour the best in TV and film at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Unlike last year, when most celebs wore black in support of Time’s Up, this year’s red carpet was a sea of colour. White and tulle were the biggest themes, but the dresses we loved most had a bit more edge. Check out our picks for the best and worst looks of the night:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: Nicole Kidman looks like liquid sex in this slinky blood red merlot dress by Michael Kors. Nicole and I are fighting over the black hair bow (I hate it, she loves it) but this dress is an undeniable winner.

 

Nicole: Holy merde, Regina King came to win tonight! She is by far my best dressed in a glowing blush gown by Alberta Ferretti that shines on the carpet. So very beautiful with simple accessories and unfussy hair. The whole look is stunning.

 

Jen: Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan brings high fashion to the red carpet in this gorg Maison Valentino Couture creation. And are those shorts underneath there?? Marry me.

 

Nicole: Taraji P Henson in a plunging velvet custom Vera Wang completely makes up for the Giambattista Valli disaster from last year’s Emmys. She looked absolutely amazing in this head to toe sleek look.

 

Jen: Lupita Nyong’o is radiant in blue sequined Calvin Klein. I love the unique neckline and the way it moves on camera.

 

Nicole: Fleabag and Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is gorgeous in a red sequinned custom gown by Galvan London that fits perfectly. She lets the dress do all the work, keeping the rest of her look very simple. This is movie star style and I’m just tickled that she’s there for writing.

 

Jen: Keri Russell deserves to take home the hardware for her stellar performance on the final season of The Americans, but she already looks like a winner in this Grecian-inspired metallic Monique Lhuillier.

 

Nicole: I love Octavia Spencer‘s tea-length gown from Cristian Siriano. It’s supremely flattering and a different silhouette than we see elsewhere on the carpet.

 

Jen: I’m sure it’s going to end up on a bunch of worst lists, but I actually really dig this look on Julia Roberts. Her ethereal Stella McCartney top and crisp black pants make her look cool and relaxed AF.

 

Nicole: Thandie Newton is pure sexiness in this mirrored Michael Kors gown that shows glimpses of skin and clings to every curve. Like a lot of looks I love tonight, the dress does all the work and the really simple gorgeous hair pulls it all together.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Nicole: Oh boy, I wish that Julianne Moore would go back to letting her pal Tom Ford dress her because Givenchy is not working for her. This is an absurd dress that tries to be too many things and ends up looking boxy and dowdy. Boo.

 

Jen: As soon as we saw Claire Foy’s Miu Miu gown, Nicole said that it reminded her of that scene in The Proposal when Sandra Bullock tries on the wedding dress and her boobs disappear. That about sums this up.

 

Nicole: What the actual hell, Alison Brie? How on earth did Taraji and Allison’s dresses come out of the same brain? Can I even call Allison’s outfit a gown? It looks like a bikini top under a sheer cover. Hard nope.

 

Jen: Lady Gaga is out of the shallows and off the deep end in blue Valentino. I get that it’s an homage to Judy Garland but the arms are ridiculous and there’s so much fabric on the train that it looks like she’s dragging curtains behind her.

 

Nicole: Jen and I actually fought over who got to pick Emily Blunt in Alexander McQueen as our best dressed until we saw the mess at the bottom of the gown. Why oh why couldn’t it be a simple column!? So close.

 

Jen: I adore Constance Wu and I want so much more for her than this underwhelming Vera Wang. The colour makes it look like support wear, and tulle is nobody’s friend.

 

Nicole: I’m all for simple tonight but man, Amy Adams is too austere in her teal Calvin Klein. She needs lipstick and a necklace, maybe a bow? Let’s get Tom Ford to dress her from now on, too!

 

Jen: The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden is trapped in the bad place with this terrible gown. Puckered seams, unflattering colour, clashing straps. What is this??

 

 

Will Smith’s Genie Fails to Impress

alladin-will-smith-genie

-EW has our first look at Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin, and the internet is not impressed. Will Smith tried to calm fans’ fears, explaining in a Facebook post that his character will be blue in the final film, and that the images in the EW issue show the Genie in his human disguise.

Eliza Dushku penned an explosive response to her allegations of sexual harassment by Bull star Michael Weatherly, accusing him and showrunner Glenn Gordon Caron of pushing a “deceptive” narrative and retaliating against her for “simply asking to do my job without relentless sexual harassment.” Her description of Weatherly’s carefully planned humiliation of her during a champagne toast is especially gross.

-Why is CBS even hesitating on a salary bump for the stars of Mom? That network cannot afford to lose its only female-focused show these days.

-Also, most of CBS’ management remains in place, despite a year of insane misconduct allegations.

-SMILF creator Frankie Shaw has been cleared in an internal investigation by ABC Studios after allegations she ran a toxic set.

-Meanwhile, this is a good thread on a showrunner’s responsibilities when it comes to sex scenes. I don’t know any other industry where someone is allowed to be in charge of that many people, but given zero management training.

Meaghan Markle reportedly stopped Queen Elizabeth and her staff from intervening when her dad started misbehaving in the press.

Josh Henderson won’t be facing burglary charges after authorities declined to prosecute the case due to “insufficient evidence.” He insisted it was a case of mistake identity and he was not in the grainy surveillance footage from his neighbor’s break in.

-This James Corden bit with Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel-Miranda performing 22(!) musical numbers in 12 minutes is insane.

-Disney is teasing that they may revive Marvel’s Netflix shows. I don’t believe them.

-The writers behind SNL’s Weezer sketch with Matt Damon explain how it came to be.

-The season 6 Drunk History trailer features Evan Rachel Wood, Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Jack McBrayer, Amandla Stenberg and Will Ferrell.

Sandra Bullock‘s solution to the Oscars not having a host is kind of brilliant: random actors should be pulled out of the audience to cover a segment of the show. Organizers “don’t even have to tell them it’s happening, just put up the teleprompter, and go, ‘It’s your turn. You’re an actor, figure it out.'”

Rachel McAdams wears Versace while pumping breast milk in her new photo shoot.

Janelle Monae talks about how speaking candidly about her sexuality in the media has made her “uncomfortable” but explained “I’ve always been a private person. But when you make art that’s so personal, folks wonder how much of this is your real life versus the concept.”

-The Family Stone is one of those movies I didn’t like when it first came out, but find myself getting sucked into it every year. So I very much appreciated Sarah Jessica Parker’s deep-dive into the making of it.

-Here’s the first trailer for Hellboy featuring Stranger Things’ star David Harbour as the titular hero.

 

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Reflect On Their Big Year

emily-blunt-john-krasinksi

-I’m not quite sure why the Hollywood Reporter opted to do a joint interview with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. She’s promoting Mary Poppins and he’s promoting — the second season of his Amazon show that doesn’t yet have a release date? Maybe? Also, out of all the photos, the cover is my least favourite. (How could they not choose the coat one!?!) Still, they’re pretty damn adorable together. She calls him Kras!

-The best part about Cardi B’s Carpool Karaoke segment is that there were no surprise interruptions by Offset (followed by her flirting with senior citizens).

-Aww man, Penny Marshall passed away at 75. Celebs are tweeting their memories and condolences. Time for a rewatch of A League of Their Own!

-Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels is reportedly sending Pete Davidson to get help following his suicide scare over the weekend.

Oprah has jumped on the Black Panther Oscar campaign. I approve!

Sandra Bullock has no interest in Oscar hosting. Can’t say I blame her.

-Meanwhile, Sandra’s outfits on her Bird Box press tour have been lit.

-According to Nielsen, the Roseanne reboot was the most-watched regularly scheduled TV program in 2018, with an average 19.9 million viewers over its run, followed by Sunday Night Football, Big Bang Theory, NCIS and This Is Us. Society is doomed.

Angelina Jolie penned an op-ed in The Economist, urging global leaders to act on the refugee crisis.

-This is a really interesting (and shade-filled!) look at why Divergent — which was supposed to be the next Hunger Games — flamed out so spectacularly.

-Man, everyone on my Twitter feed is obsessed with this Turkish show. OB.SESS.ED.

Lin Manuel-Miranda and Jimmy Fallon performed holiday parodies of the year’s hits and it was very cute.

-There’s no Doctor Who holiday special this year, so they made up for it with this animated short instead.

-This trailer for Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan‘s new ABC series is delightful!

-Netflix ordered more episodes of Sabrina, so I guess that’s a thing now.

Cate Blanchett stars in the Where’d You Go, Bernadette? trailer. I LOVED that book and this cast is very promising.
