After last year’s writers strike shut down the broadcast of the Golden Globes, this year they were back and better than ever! I didn’t get to watch the entire show, as Rory insisted we watch a movie rather than tune-in to watch the same-old awards extravaganza, but I did get to watch a bit and I have to say I was impressed with the fashion and the award winners.
First and foremost, I have to say THANK HEAVEN for the Hollywood Foreign Press finally giving Kate Winslet not 1, but 2 awards last night (one for supporting actress in “The Reader” and for lead actress in “Revolutionary Road”) – she has to be one of my absolute favorite actresses and I most definitely think she deserved her wins! She looked just as beautiful as ever and I couldn’t help but think back to Titanic-mania as Leo looked so genuinely happy for her as she took the stage to accept her statues- love it!
Looks like I am also going to have to watch “Slumdog Millionaire”- the underdog independent film took hom top honors for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Musical Score. Mickey Rourke also made a dramatic comeback in “The Wrestler” and won for best lead actor – apparntly his adaptation of a tanned-wrestling superstar was too good to turn down for critics, and Bruce Springsteen also won Best Song for the picture, as well.
And then as expected, the late Heath Ledger won for “Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Dark Knight”. I was so happy to see him being recognized for his achievements in film, even after his untimely death- I think he will most definitely take home an Oscar for this one, too- as it really is incredible and a role that truly took its toll on him, personally and professionally.
Now back to the real issue, the FASHION- the ladies out in true form last night- for the most part, I think they all looked incredible… muted solids were definitely a trend last night, and so was messy hair, though I wasn’t a big fan to say the least. Here are a few of my favorites from the night…
