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 2016!!!

Hellooooo!!!!! It is finally my favorite time of the year: AWARD SEASON! To start us off was yesterday’s Golden Globes, hosted by Ricky Gervais. Ricky…well..uh…let’s see…he was Ricky to say the least. I honestly do not understand why the HFPA asked him to come back for the fourth time to host the Globes because he was not necessarily that funny and was more cringe worthy if anything. That aside, the Globes yesterday were fantastic because of all the amazing winners!

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 DramaThe Revenant YES! I am so excited to see this movie, well deserved!
  • Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: The Martian, I agree with the director Ridley Scott’s comment, was this really a comedy though?
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama: Brie Larson for Room. Yup, predicted that but I honestly didn’t realize how young she was until I heard her voice in her speech.
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama: Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant, YES YES YES YES YES! For those who know me, Leo is my all time favorite actor so this was a big moment for me.
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Matt Damon for The Martian, yup predicted that
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Jennifer Lawrence for Joy, yup predicted that, but the girl just has so many awards already.
  • Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Sylvester Stallone for Creed, I honestly did not see that coming but it was so deserved! The standing ovation and Sly’s great speech were among the best moments of the night. Shoutout to Asha A and her favorite win!
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Kate Winslet for Steve Jobs, the Globes just love Kate so I predicted right! (Also Leo and Kate both won last night guys, eek!)
  • Best TV Series Drama: Mr. Robot, did not see that coming!!
  • Best TV Series Comedy: Mozart in the Jungle, did not see that coming either!
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Drama: Jon Hamm for Mad Men, yup predicted that.
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Drama: Taraji P. Henson for Empire, I thought it was going to be Viola Davis but I love Taraji and Cookie so much!! Her speech was simply so Cookie and perfect!
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy: Gael G. Bernal for Mozart in the Jungle, did not see that coming..going to have to look more into this show!
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy: Rachel Bloom for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, did not see that coming either! Wow these CW actresses (Bloom this year, Gina Rodriguez last year) are really sweeping these Globes.
  • Best Actor, Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV: Oscar Isaac for Show Me a Hero, yup predicted that because I just love Oscar Isaac!
  • Best Actress, Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV: Lady Gaga for American Horror Story: Hotel, uhh no did not see that coming and I don’t think anyone else did either because that room was just awkward when she won…Also Leo was not throwing shade at Gaga people, she just bumped into him accidentally and he was reacting to that! Chill!

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

On to my other favorite part of award season: THE RED CARPET!

This time around we have a very special guest Amanda A joining us with her Red Carpet picks as well so let’s see if any of ours overlap!

Amy’s Choices

BEST

Brie Larson in Calvin Klein

My favorite! I love the cut of the dress and the shine, she looks like a Golden Globe.

Saoirse Ronan in Yves Saint Laurent Couture by Hedi Slimane

Simple and elegant, like a Greek Goddess.

Amy Adams in Atelier Versace

Love that color on her, matches her hair!

Taraji P. Henson in Stella McCartney

Another white dress that I loved, mainly because of the fierce lady rocking it!

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Kate Hudson in Michael Kors

Okay I’m sorry, I know not everyone loved this look but I surprisingly like it for some reason. It just seems like something Kate Hudson would wear and you know, if I had a bod like hers, I would show it off too!

Lady Gaga in Versace

Very classy! Even though I am still a bit surprised by her win, I do appreciate how much her style has evolved. 

Laverne Cox in Elizabeth Kennedy

More white! I love the flow of this dress though.

WORST

Katy Perry in Prada

The dress is horrid, the color is horrid, her hair is horrid. No honey, just no. 

Rooney Mara in Alexander McQueen

This dress is horrid, the color is horrid, her hair is horrid. No honey, just no. 

Amanda’s Choices

BEST

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

Unique silhouette and a great color on her.

Julianne Moore in Tom Ford

Beautiful color on her and a great neckline. She looks like the night sky.

Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista Valli

Got to give it up for J.Lo. She looks classy for once. Her dress is a great color and the shape is unique and interesting.

Amy Adams in Atelier Versace

Simple yet sparkly…my favorite. Actually reminds me of my prom dress which was the same color as my hair too.

Laverne Cox in Elizabeth Kennedy

Love Laverne and love the way this dress flows on her. So chic!

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Lady Gaga in Versace

That look is so classy! How dare Leo laugh at her for winning an award! She still looks kinda scary though.

Melissa McCarthy in a dress of her own design

Props to her for designing her own dress. It’s flattering and I like its shine. It kinda looks like a trash bag though.

WORST

Katy Perry in Prada

Looks like a nightgown and her hair is too retro.

Kate Hudson in Michael Kors

What was she thinking? She is at the Golden Globes not the club!

Eva Longoria in Georges Hobeika

This dress looks like a tablecloth or a sofa covering. Sorry I just thought it wasn’t glam enough.

Ok so 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! We’ll be back for the SAG awards Saturday, January 30th.

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!
