Last night’s Golden Globes turned out to be nothing more than a graveyard of all the drama that never was. Hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were over-the-top nice (blurg), nobody wanted to drag Bryan Singer in front of millions (boo), and the one bit of real red carpet drama, Chrissy Metz allegedly calling Alison Brie a bitch, turned out to be nothing more than a silly misunderstanding (hiss). According to TMZ, Chrissy’s not the soapy drama queen we hoped she was. During a Golden Globes pre-show interview on Facebook, Chrissy could be heard saying what many thought was “she’s such a bitch” under her breath on a hot mic after being alerted to Alison’s arrival on the red carpet. But TMZ says Chrissy actually said “babe” not “bitch”. What’s more, she said she considers Alison a friend and that anybody who knows her, knows she would never say something like that.
Believe it or not, but the most random beef I experienced tonight wasn’t the shit I got from Taco Bell for the Golden Globes. Yes, you can GONG me for that “joke,” but first use your hands to slow clap for Chrissy Metz for actually bringing some riveting drama to the 2019 Golden Globes, which are in need of some riveting drama.
There were some real upside down and sideways looks on display at the The Council of Fashion Designers of America awards in NYC last night. Most notably Whoopi Goldberg giving us Little Bo Peep who lost her sheep and was forced to go to the big city and take out a bank loan for more, wearing her best Big Business suit. The added bonus of that suit is that those giant bell bottoms probably ring so damn loud, the sheep should have no problem finding their way back home.
Other notable looks included: Cate Blanchett‘s tuxedo/ baked potato/ butcher’s apron combo, and the night’s host Issa Rae’s belt that read “Every Nigga Is A Star”. All of those looks and more are in the gallery but for now, we’ve got plenty of high fashion to keep us in “what is going on here”s for a week.
The Billboard Music Awards were last night and if the red carpet is any indication, it lived up to it’s name because most stars looked as bored as can be. With very few exceptions, most of the night’s looks were uninspired and devoid of whimsy. Nick Jonas (above) looks like he just showed up for his shift at Applebees and still needs to go get his flair from his locker and take a quick shot at the bar before getting started. He’ll be with you in a minute, ok?
Last night, Alison Brie, Alison’s husband Dave Franco, and Dave’s brother James Franco all attended the SAG Awards in Los Angeles. James skipped the red carpet, but someone from the family had to take on the thankless job of fielding all the awkward questions about him on the red carpet. That honor fell on Alison. A choice that I’m sure was made democratically by drawing straws in the limo on the ride over, and not because James didn’t want to risk his damage control being delivered as “Yo, man, the allegations are, like…very un-rad, dude.”
Hollywood decided to wear black at the Golden Globes last Sunday night in silent protest of the industry’s sexual assault problem. But four days later, most Hollywood people at the Critics’ Choice Awards went with color.
Kate Bosworth didn’t wear color, but she did wear a mess. Kate is wearing a dress by Brock Collection, but if I hadn’t been told who made her dress, I’d assume she went into a formal event showroom on a particularly dry day, collected too much static electricity while trying on a bridal gown with her socks on, and accidentally left the store with a child’s christening gown that was stuck to her. The best part is that the fun didn’t end when Kate turned around.
