In my fantasy land, I’m wearing a green dress to the Golden Globe Awards. And the Oscars. And the SAG Awards. And everywhere else. Because green is the way to go, as Scarlett Johansson proved at the MTV Movie Awards.
Thankfully, Hollywood paid attention. Lots of green. And lots of red. (Thanks Sofia Vergara, January Jones and Christina Hendricks!)
Unfortunately they also went for nude/blush tones and I have never been a big fan. Natalie Portman even tried to combine the blush and red in an epic fail. (But I still don’t think she looked as bad as Heidi Klum.)
See below for my best and worst from the night.
Catherine Zeta-Jones upstaged her not-that-sick-anymore husband, Michael Douglas —which is probably how he likes it and why he married her — in arguably my favorite gown of the night. I had forgotten how gorgeous she is. She reminded me.
I think January Jones is the most consistently interesting person on any red carpet. She was my favorite at the Emmys (except her hair) and I love her bold statement here. She is so confident when it comes to fashion, so why does she suck so bad as a “Saturday Night Live” host? She’s even dating the hottest SNL guy, Jason Sudeikis. I don’t get it. Anyway, I love this look. She is beyond stunning.
Angelina Jolie wore emerald earrings to the Oscars … was it last year? No, I think maybe the year before. Can’t remember. Anyway, she wore those gorgeous earrings with a bland black dress and this time she’s covering up her scrawny frame in a full green dress. At least she looked good while Ricky Gervais trashed her film, “The Tourist.” Awkward! He really knows how to get the groans.
Mila Kunis, the other hottie from “Black Swan,” also wore green. She looks just like the elder daughter from “Modern Family.” I think it’s funny that both Mila and her “Black Swan” buddy, Natalie Portman, have almost identical movies coming out. Mila’s is called “Friends with Benefits” and Natalie’s is “No Strings Attached.” That trend sucks.
I love Elisabeth Moss, even if she is a Scientologist. What do I care. She looks great and looking great is the best revenge. (Take that, Fred Armisen!) This is not my favorite green dress, but I’m all-in when it comes to green tonight.
Miss Hailee was amazing in “True Grit” (which was otherwise just OK to me) and looks gorgeous here. Sleek hair! I love sleek hair.
I like Amy Adams, even if I wasn’t that into her in “The Fighter.” But I was only into Christian Bale in “The Fighter.”
Speaking of Christian, why is he all of a sudden always gushing about his wife?
Actually, I know the answer: He’s trying so hard to win an Oscar for “The Fighter.”
So can we love him now? I miss loving him.
And what did he say to Roberto De Niro?
She knows. She knows exactly what she’s doing. Look at her. When is “Mad Men” coming back? By the way, look at what they’re doing to Johnny Depp in this shot. AP recalled this but I’m keeping it.
Sofia! Always looks good. Doesn’t know how not to. Love the back. Baby got back, for sure. Love or hate? Hit up FabSugar’s poll.
Holy crap. When is Halle Berry going to look just average? Her perpetual beauty is getting to be annoying.
See. This is how good it looks when you keep it simple. Granted, Claire Danes is a bit too thin, but I looooove this simply chic look.
Sandra Bullock has given up. The hair. The dress. So far from her big Oscar moment. Sad.
Natalie Portman is pregnant but for heaven’s sake, she’s not THAT pregnant. She recently got even tinier for “Black Swan” so it’s kind of funny how in the same 365 days she’ll probably be at her smallest (ballet dancer) and largest (preggers!) as an adult woman. Anyway, the dress is ugly.
There are at least three dresses in this one dress. Oh Hope. The blue is nice, anyway.
This is one of my biggest disappointments. Juliana Margulies is not Tilda Swinton, I don’t expect her to look bad. She’s gorgeous and this dress does not flatter.
Jennifer Lopez does not look good here. She normally does, but it doesn’t work this time. Blah. I don’t like how she overdoes her face.
How did Lea Michele end up on the worst list? She’s usually so good at keeping it simple and glam, but she goes overboard here. And it keeps bunching in the wrong places.
Look, no one loves Michelle Williams more than I do. But this cute hippie look is just not right. And it’s not flattering. Frown.
The one and only. The woman. The myth. The legend. The Tilda.
How could I forget Helena Bonham Carter! She is the new Bjork. I adore her. The SHOES! Watch “The King’s Speech” and join me in wishing you lived in Geoffrey Rush’s office.
Olivia Wilde was one of the first ladies to hit the red carpet. I loved her Cinderella dress and didn’t even mind her bangs. But the shoes. Too much for me.
Scarlett Johansson is definitely going old Hollywood, but I’m not sure about the sleeves. And the color. I just want color. Why is that too much to ask?
Check out my“ “Golden Globes” archive and scroll down for whatever-the-hell I said about last year’s event. I can’t even remember.
And God love him for it.
Did you see this stuff about Tim Gunn insulting Taylor Momsen of “Gossip Girl”?
“What a diva!” he told E! News of 17-year-old Taylor, whom he met when he shot a guest spot on the show. “She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself ‘why are we all being held hostage by this brat?”
Her look special aim at her constant BlackBerry use.
“I’d say, ‘You know young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’ She was on her phone during every break, I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.”’
He’s not even done! He also said the entire crew was annoyed by her.
“I learned from teaching to stick with the topic, I don’t get involved in character appraisals,” Tim said. “I’d just ask her ‘do you want to share with me why you’re always on your phone?’ At one point the director leaned in and whispered to me, ‘this is day in, day out, my life.’ She annoyed the entire crew.”
Read the full E! story if you want to hear what he says about the “Real Housewives.”
He’s honest. You have to give him that.
And his honesty makes me even more curious to read his new book, “Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work,” which Blogging Project Runway says just made the bestsellers list.
Tonight on “Project Runway” the goddess Betty Draper will be in the house for “A Rough Day on the Runway,” where the designers pay homage to Jackie O.
When not on “Mad Men,” Betty is called January Jones and she is dating the guy I wanted to date on “Saturday Night Live.”
So she is evil and not welcome in my world. Having said that, so excited to see her!
Catch up on my “Project Runway” recaps, spoilers and other stuff in this nifty archive.
First of all, I’m ticked at my favorite “Saturday Night Live” comedian, Jason Sudeikis, for dating January Jones since she was arguably the worst SNL host of all time.
Do you read Lainey Gossip? Lainey also loved January’s Emmys dress and hates January’s lack of personality. She is gorgeous — and probably should’ve won an Emmy for playing Betty Draper on the best show on TV — but there’s no there there.
Having said that, I was grateful for her dress after the darkness the Emmys dropped on us — long navy and black evening gowns.
Why? It’s August.
If I had a ticket to the Emmys and any style at all, I would’ve done what January did with this bold royal blue Versace. But I would’ve done something equally bold with my hair, instead of her casual California surfer girl look.
E! online did its glam or sham poll and they also called out January for her hair and boring pumps. Readers voted her 39.9% Glam and 60.1% Sham.
Hey, I liked it — a lot more than what my favorite “Mad Men” actress, Christina Hendricks, wore. Those are some ugly purple feathers. She’s one of those beautiful-in-a-paper-bag types, but this lavender Zac Posen dress is testing that theory.
Christina is my #1 girl on the show and Elisabeth Moss is my second favorite. Elisabeth stays in that position fashion-wise with her not-great-but-not-bad Donna Karan gown.
Speaking of “Mad Men,” I just saw this story about how the cast of “True Blood” — including Alexander Skarsgard — ditched the HBO party to hang out at AMC’s cooler “Mad Men” party at the Soho House. Poor HBO! At least they have all those Emmys to keep them happy.

This is what I wanted to happen:
- “Hurt Locker” wins best pic and best director for my hero Kathryn Bigelow. (Which would make her the second woman to win this award, after Barbra Streisand for “Yentl.” It’s time for Babs to be dethroned, no?)
- Jeff Bridges (“Crazy Heart”) or Jeremy Renner (“Hurt Locker”) for Best Actor in a motion picture drama.
- “Mad Men” gets anything and everything it’s nominated for, including Jon Hamm for Best Actor TV drama and January Jones for Best Actress TV drama.
- Christoph Waltz for best supporting actor for “Inglourious Basterds”
- “The Weary Kind” from “Crazy Heart” for best original song.
- And I want host Ricky Gervais to do something shocking to make everyone in the audience uncomfortable.
But as the sun now stands, Julianna Margulies won over January Jones (and Anna Paquin of “True Blood”), which upsets me, although Julianna looked GORGEOUS.
Michael C. Hall won over Jon Hamm and Hugh Laurie and I have to say, that head wrap is a good look for him. Not happy about why he has to wear it, but at least his cancer is in remission. He is quite the cutie and we need him (and “Dexter”) around for a long time.
“The Weary Kind” did win best song, but T Bone Burnett couldn’t find my new crush, Ryan Bingham. Was he in the “loo,” like Toni Collette was, way back when?
And everyone who won said they worked with the best people in the world and they have the best jobs in the world and it made me want to take their awards away. If you have the best job in the world, that should be reward enough.
In this lousy economy with countries falling apart, you don’t deserve major gift bags and free liquor at the table and fancy dresses and jewelry AND the best jobs in the world. Pick one.
Now let’s get to the arrival pics. These are all AP photos. Sorry, in advance, for any weird formatting issues.
