Apparently all eyes were on Angelina Jolie on Golden Globes night. If you weren’t sneaking a quick glance to detect if a pair of devil horns popped up through her hair when Jennifer Aniston walked out on stage, you might have been staring at her table buddy. Angelina Jolie was seated next to Chris Hemsworth. Angelina and Chris hadn’t appeared in a movie together, and Chris’ wife Elsa Pataky was nowhere to be seen. Chris was on Ellen yesterday and Ellen DeGeneres said that people made a “thing” out of him sitting next to Angelina. Chris says it’s not a thing.
Blowback from last weekend’s Golden Globes is still making our eyes water so it’s hard to tell if people are crying from the hypocrisy of it all or from some of the questionable ensembles noir. Connie Britton, the latest celebrity to earn some post GG side eye, managed to tick both boxes with her choice of outfit for the event.
William Bradley Pitt is on the prowl and at a charity auction on Saturday, he tried to bid his way to a date with the mother of dragons herself, Emilia Clarke. I guess the Golden Globes wasn’t the only hot ticket in town this weekend! So how much does it cost to make time with the worst wig in Westeros? More than Brad’s final bid of $120,000!
I figured that the only one who’d dare to wear something other than black to the Golden Globes last night would be Rose McGowan, and she’d crash that show while wearing a hot pink warrior uniform with the words “Fuck You Fakers #RoseArmy” written in bright yellow sequins on it. But Rose kept her protest on Twitter, and instead, other women caused an ESCANDALO by not dressing for Hollywood’s death at the predator hands of powerful men.
Angelina Jolie Decided To Fulfill Someone’s Feathered 60s Fantasy Last Night (And Other Looks From The Golden Globes)
Almost everyone who walked the Golden Globes red carpet this year wore black to protest Hollywood’s sexual misconduct problem. One thing that wasn’t being protested was good taste. There were a lot of black velvet outfits on that red carpet. Sure, it’s a bit of an obvious choice, but a choice I was absolutely here for, because anything that makes my brain start blasting “Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles gets two thumbs up from me.
But some people went a little more experimental with their all-black interpretation. Like Angelina Jolie, who showed up to the Golden Globes in some goth Lawrence Welk Show realness by Atelier Versace. It’s a little Barbra Streisand at the 1969 Oscars, with a splash of 60s televangelist, all poured onto a fainting couch and garnished with, “But detective, I swear my husband was dead when I found him!”
Ewan McGregor Thanked His Estranged Wife And His Current Girlfriend In His Golden Globes Acceptance Speech
Back in October, Ewan McGregor announced that his 22-year marriage to Eve Mavrakis was over. His announcement came shortly after pics of him kissing his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead came out. And then for anyone who might have thought those pics were something taken out of context, Ewan and Mary Elizabeth sort-of confirmed the obvious by getting papped holding hands a few weeks later.
Ewan won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Limited Series last night for his role in Fargo. Anyone at home or in that audience with a little knowledge about the end of Ewan’s marriage might have been bracing themselves for some extreme awkwardness to happen during that acceptance speech. Like Ewan nervously gulping and wiping sweat away from his forehead while stammering a thank-you to a person named Eve-lizabeth. But it wasn’t nearly that awkward.
Ewan covered all his thank you bases by thanking his estranged wife first, then his four kids, and ended his speech by giving a little shout out to his girlfriend. Neither Eve nor Mary Elizabeth were at the Golden Globes.
Ewan had such a struggle ahead of him while composing that acceptance speech. He can’t thank his girlfriend first, because open marriage blind items or not, that would look pretty bad. So she’s got to come second – even if it’s beyond awkward to be following the woman who is scrawling her name across your man’s divorce papers. So I guess the correct order is: former wife, kids, then girlfriend. Gosh, you’d think that someone in Hollywood would have published a helpful acceptance speech manual by now. So You’ve Won An Award For A Role That Might Have Aided In The Death of Your Marriage.
