The 68th Annual Golden Globes Awards broadcast on Sunday was surrounded by talk, not about January Jones’ sexy red dress or Michael Douglas appearance on the show after his bout with cancer, but by the backlash against Ricky Gervais’ snarky and inappropriate jokes as the host. In the words of actor, Robert Downey Jr. the show has “ been hugely mean-spirited with mildly sinister undertones...”

The Good, The Bad & The Oh No You Didn’t!
I am not the fashion police. But some of the stars wore some really lovely dresses on the Golden Globes show and some…not so much. Starting with the sexy red fringed Versace number January Jones wore. I guess after dressing like a conservative 1960’s housewife on Mad Men, she wanted to bust loose.
Olivia Wilde’s dress was stellar in more ways than one, She looked like she was standing in a field of stars in her Marchesa gown.
Sandra Bullock, who usually looks so beautiful and well put together, was a little bit off the mark. I don’t know if it was the pink chiffon gown or the helmet sized bangs. The new hairstyle doesn’t do anything for you, Sandy.
Halle Berry looks good no matter what she wears; and if I had that body, I would
show it off too. However her Nina Ricci gown looked more like lingerie that an evening dress.
Helena Bonham Carter showed off her own style in a multi-colored Vivian Westwood dress, a wild red hairdo and mismatched shoes.
Several actresses broke away from the safe black evening dress. Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis and Catherine Zeta Jones wore emerald-green. Claire Danes and a pregnant Natalie Portman work pink. Lea Michelle and Juliane Moore also wore pink and both looked a junky mess. I’m sorry, but it’s true.
