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:


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.



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??



Julianne Moore Is Done Talking About Her Age

Julianne Moore wants people to stop pointing out that she’s 57...which seems fair. “Oh my God. I’ve been talking about aging since I was 30; can we just be alive?”

Justin Bieber‘s honeymoon has taken him to a gay bar in Zurich — as one typically does.

-The internet is very concerned about Donald Glover’s foot injury.

-On Ellen, Benedict Cumberbatch humbly chatted about helping a cyclist who was robbed: “I just stopped the Uber that we were in, got out and tried to intervene.”

-People seem to be loving the new season of Serial. The podcast broke records with 3 million downloads in its first week.

-I really liked this appreciation of The Good Place’s podcast. I’ve only listened to one so far, but it had the 2nd AD on and I learned so much about what assistant directors do. (I also learned that Jason Mantzoukas ad-libbed “Maximum Derek!”, which seems like valuable info.)

Pete Davidson said of Ariana Grande: “Any time we’re intimate I’m always apologizing and saying thank you. ‘You’re awesome for doing this, thank you so much.’ I get it. I was jerking off to her before I met her!” Just what every girl wants her boyfriend to publicly declare…

Whachta doing, Jessie Williams?

Mel Gibson just scored a new writing and directing gig. Read the room, Hollywood!

-This is Us creator Dan Fogelman tried to walk back his whining about Life Itself’s reviews (though he didn’t really correct his “white male movie critics” statement). It didn’t help; it had the worst wide box office opening of the year.

-Every new Bumblebee trailer that comes out is better than the last, but this is a Transformers movie so it’s clearly a trap.

-Here’s the trailer for Collette starring Keira Knightley and Dominic West, which is getting lots of good buzz on the film fest circuit.


Cate Blanchett Stands Up for Women, Plays Chess with Chris Hemsworth


Cate Blanchett and Chris Hemsworth look like a romcom come to life in the pages of Vogue

-Meanwhile, Cate slays in this speech: “Just because we want to look sexy doesn’t mean we want to fuck you.”

-My friend Russ wrote a great piece on how Justin Timberlake has to publicly apologize to Janet Jackson. It’s long overdue.

-Do you think Kristen Stewart would let me live with her? Because her new NYC loft is beautiful.

-Onetime Weinstein assistant Zelda Perkins has become the first of the producer’s former staffers to break her NDA in an explosive interview with the Financial Times. She says he exposed himself to her, asked for massages, requested she watch him bathe, and repeatedly tried to pull him into bed with her. She claims she quit at 24 when he sexually assaulted a female colleague during the 1998 Venice Film Festival. She left the company with a £250,000 settlement after signing an N.D.A. (which she was not allowed to keep a copy of) following 12 hours of questioning by Weinstein’s lawyers that ended at 5 a.m.

-Super lawyer Gloria Allred held a press conference this afternoon, in which a former Weinstein production assistant told a graphic story about her alleged assault. I can’t imagine him escaping criminal charges at this point…

-I’m really glad that people in Hollywood are speaking out on the rampant sexual harassment, but I’ve gotta say…I kind of don’t need to hear any more from Matt Damon. (Unless he changes his tune and says something along the lines of “I didn’t want to rock the boat of my newfound fame” and/or “I should have realized that if he did it to Gwyneth, he was doing it to others” and/or “Here are the names of others who should be called out.”)

-Since the James Toback story was published on Sunday, 193 additional women have contacted the L.A. Times to talk about the director.

Julianne Moore says James Toback approached her twice in the 1980s.

-Speaking of directors with a history of allegations, the Daily Beast did a deep dive into tales of David O. Russell’s groping and on-set abuse.

-Meanwhile, photographer Terry Richardson has reportedly been banned from top magazines amid sexual harassment allegations.

-Hollywood’s creep cleanout continues. Amazon’s Joe Lewis, head of comedy and drama development, is leaving the company amid conflict of interest allegations that he cast his girlfriend, Jane the Virgin actress Yara Martinez, in the streaming service’s scripted drama The Tick.

-The actress/fixer who set up Sean Penn‘s meeting with druglord El Chapo  is telling stories — much to Penn’s chagrin.

George Clooney remembers how his dad would sit with him when he worked at a liquor store to prevent the place from being robbed.

Meghan Markle‘s half-sister is writing a memoir called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister. Between this and her ex-husband, she has a lot of garbage people in her life trying to make a buck off her.

RIP Robert Guillaume. I loved this remembrance of him as an amazing leader on Sports Night. This speech still gives me chills.

-Wait, Fringe’s Anna Torv is in Mindhunter? Why aren’t I watching this thing?!?

Helen Mirren is haunted in the first trailer for Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built.
