GOLDEN GLOBES 2017!!!

Yay awards season is finally here! First up we had the Golden Globes Sunday night hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The show as a whole was OK. There were not a lot of funny moments so to say, but more so memorable ones with some great winners and some amazing speeches (Meryl!!). Jimmy Fallon I thought was an alright host. I loved the opening La La Land inspired sequence but other than that and Questlove, he really did not bring anything new to the table.

Make sure to check out TSL’s live twitter feed from yesterday’s show for more of my reactions and opinions about the show!

Some highlights:

  • Best Motion Picture Drama: Moonlight, I’m excited to see this film but I feel like it is being majorly swept under the rug.
  • Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: La La Land, the film swept the Globes with a record-breaking 7 wins.
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama: Isabelle Hupert for Elle, I was not expecting this!
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama: Casey Affleck for Manchester by the Sea
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Ryan Gosling for La La Land, yup I had a feeling it would go to either of the Ryans (the other being Ryan Reynolds for Deadpool).
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Emma Stone for La La Land, yup predicted that.
  • Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Aaron Taylor-Johnson for Nocturnal Animals, I love him so I was really happy with his win! Though I think Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) might have been robbed.
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Viola Davis for Fences, one of the best wins of the night and her speech was great.
  • Best TV Series DramaThe Crown, happy to say I predicted it!
  • Best TV Series ComedyAtlanta, did not see this one coming but I am so happy it won. It’s a great show!
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Drama: Billy Bob Thornton for Goliath, yup predicted it.
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Drama: Claire Foy for The Crown, yup predicted this one too!
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy: Donald Glover for Atlanta, another one of my favorite wins of the night! Love him!
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy: Tracee Ellis Ross for Black-ish, she made history as the first black woman to win in this category since Debbie Allen in 1983!
  • Best Actor, Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV: Tom Hiddleston for The Night Manager, his speech was probably one of the low moments of night for me. It’s nice to talk about humanitarian work but not when it’s all about your show in the end.
  • Best Actress, Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV: Sarah Paulson for The People v. OJ, yup predicted her!

Typing all this out is a lot of work so check out the full list of winners here.

Now onto my other favorite part of awards season: THE RED CARPET!

Joining us again this year with her red carpet picks is Amanda A!

Amy’s Choices

BEST

Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad

My favorite look of the night. I dream about this dress, I am obsessed with this dress. It is absolutely gorgeous!

Reese Witherspoon in Atelier Versace

 Love the light yellow color and elegant fit

Viola Davis in Michael Kors

YELLOWWWW, it’s bright and it’s a risk but Viola pulls it off exceptionally

Brie Larson in Rodarte

Classic and gorgeous Brie

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Emma Stone in Valentino Haute Couture

I thought the color was kind of drab on this one actually. The stars make up for it though.

Mandy Moore in Naeem Khan

Liked the cape and cut

THE WORST

Jessica Chastain in Prada

Was not a fan of the color, cut, or design at all

Zoe Saldana in Gucci Premiere

Get those ruffles out of here! Zoe Saldana’s looks are often hit or miss with me.

Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen

Those sleeves though..I’m not sure if the dress would be much better without them though.

Felicity Jones in Gucci

Sorry Amanda A, I know you like this dress but it just didn’t cut it for me. I like the black details the more I look at it, but the dress as a whole disappointed me.

Amanda’s Choices

Surprising number of great dresses on the carpet last night! It was extremely hard to narrow them down this time. Loved to see some of these ladies taking risks with their fashion choices that paid off. 

BEST

Viola Davis in Michael Kors

Tell me who else pulls off highlighter yellow like that? 

Felicity Jones in Gucci

This dress is getting a lot of undeserved hate, but I love the different colors and the detail. 
Emma Stone in Valentino Haute Couture
Such a pretty color on her and I love the stars! 
Issa Rae in Christian Siriano
She looked like a goddess! 
Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad
A perfect princess dress
HONORABLE MENTIONS
Brie Larson in Rodarte
A classic and elegant look
Ruth Negga in Louis Vuitton
So unique and she pulled it off.
Evan Rachel Wood in custom Altuzarra
The fit of this suit is amazing.
WORST

Jessica Biel in Elie Saab Haute Couture

A bit too low cut and she doesn’t have much to show for it.

Sarah Jessica Parker in Vera Wang

Was she trying to pay homage to Princess Leia? Idk

Jessica Chastain in Prada

Looked kinda like a bedspread. Not feeling the color, cut, or details 

Sofia Vergara in Zuhair Murad

Eh a bit much 

That’s the end of our Golden Globes coverage! Special thanks to Amanda A for her red carpet picks and to Asha A for watching the show with me again! We’ll be back for the SAG awards Saturday, January 29th.

GOLDEN GLOBES 2015

THIS IS SO LATE BUT I DON’T CARE…HERE WE GO……AWARD SEASON 2015!!!! woo

How’s everyone doing? Long time, no see! So I’m going to get right down to the point here, before this award season, I had very to little interest in the movies nominated. It definitely seemed like a lackluster award season, but now I am actually getting pretty excited. There are some pretty good movies out right now (my challenge: see all Oscar best pic nominated before the show on 2/22)!

So I Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the show for the 3rd and last time. Overall I thought it was a pretty good show. The duo was funny but I felt like they really played those North Korea and Bill Cosby jokes to the point where it got cringe-worthy but hey Tina and Amy rock so…

Some highlights:

  • Best Motion Picture Drama: Boyhood, (yup = called it)
  • Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: The Grand Budapest Hotel, what. Where did Wes Anderson come from, also how did this get 9 Oscar nominations??
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama: Julianne Moore for Still Alice, not expecting that! Still rooting for Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl or Reese Witherspoon for Wild
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama: Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, not expecting this either but good for him!
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Michael Keaton for Birdman, yup and I love his speech, best one of the night
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Amy Adams for Big Eyes, yup
  • Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Alan Arkin for Whiplash, yup and btw Whiplash looks great!
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Patricia Arquette for Boyhood, yup
  • Best TV Series Drama: The Affair, not expecting that
  • Best TV Series Comedy: Transparent, not expecting that either, all the TV winners were new winners too
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Drama: Kevin Spacey for House of Cards, yup
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Drama: Ruth Wilson for The Affair, not expecting that
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy: Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent, again I was so bad at predicting the TV winners!
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy: Gina Rodrguez for Jane the Virgin, yay I loved her speech too! She really deserved it!

Okay so I do not really feel like typing out the rest so check out the full list of winners here

Yes so let us finally get down to the best part….THE RED CARPET!

  • Jenna Dewan Tatum in Carolina Herrera

Oscar Predictions 2014

Ahhh it’s my favorite time of year again….THE OSCARS! So while the big show is set for Sunday, here are Ticket Stub Love’s predictions for the big winners!

one again, a link for the full list of nominees and our previous nominations post

Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave. If not this then American Hustle, but I would be surprised.

Director: Alfonso Cuaron – Gravity. Gravity is a filmmaker’s achievement and Cuaron deserves it all the way.

Actor in  Leading Role: Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. I want Leo to win so badly for Wolf Of Wall Street, but McConaughey has been sweeping all the major awards so he is my pick.

Actress in a Leading Role: Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine

Actor in a Supporting Role: Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club

Actress in a Supporting Role: Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years a Slave. There is a 50/50 chance between her and Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle. Though I get the sinking feeling JLaw might get it, she already won an Oscar just last year so I’m rooting for Lupita.

Original ScreenplayHer – Spike Jonze

Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years a Slave – John Ridley

Animated Feature Film: Frozen

Foreign Film: The Great Beauty (Italy)

Best Music (original song): Frozen: “Let it Go” — Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez . Though “Happy” by Pharell, also nominated,  is such a good song!

Music (original score): Gravity – Steven Price

Cinematography: Gravity – Emmanuel Lubezki

Costume Design: American Hustle – Michael Wilkinson

Documentary Feature:  The Act of Killing

Film Editing: Gravity – Alfonso Cuaron, Mark Sanger

Makeup and Hair styling:  Dallas Buyers Club – Adruitha Lee and Robin Mathews

Production Design: Gravity – Andy Nicholson, Rosie Goodwin and Joanne Woollard.

Visual Effects: Gravity. I know, I vote too much for Gravity! I just feel like it will win many of the technical awards.

Sound Mixing: Lone Survivor  (I’ve kind of just been guessing at this point..)

Sound Editing:  All Is Lost

Short Film, live action: Avant Que De Tout Perdre (Just Before Losing Everything)

Short Film, animated:  Get a Horse!

Okay so tune in to see the 86th Academy Awards hosted By Ellen DeGeneres (who everyone loves so I’m sure it will be a great show) on Sunday, March 2nd at 8:30pm ET on ABC. Red carpet coverage will probably start a 7 or 8. HERE WE GO!!!
