I usually like to watch the Red Carpet specials before the actual show to see all the celebrities as the walk in so you can get the full effect of the gown. Unfortuantely, my family had other plans for my televisions. Hubby was watching football in the living room and L REFUSED to let me watch it in my room. For some reason he has taken over my TV and when I tried to change the channel, he started what I call "autism cussing" - words that I cannot understand, but I'm sure are probably not very nice. Not to mention that he gets LOUD and I couldn't hear the interviews. So, I missed part of the special, but I did get to see a few celebs as they came in. There were A LOT of champagne, ivory colored, or lack of color, frocks to be seen. While a lot of them were pretty, they seemed to all run together. None of them really stood out to me, with the exception of the Golden Globe girl, Gia Mantegna, daughter of actor, Joe Mantegna.
The outstanding color of the evening seemed to be green, worn by Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Catherine Zeta Jones and Elisabeth Moss.
A few of my favorites for the evening:
Claire Danes in Calvin Klein - gorgeous!
Natalie Portman in Viktor and Rolf, which looks stunning on her baby bump.
Eva Longoria in Zac Posen. GORGEOUS!
Helen Mirren, lovely as always, in Badgley Mischka.
There were also a few dresses that were not my favorite:
This is the gorgeous, January Jones. The dress itself isn't so bad, but my gracious I spent half the night waiting for her boob to fall out of it's strap thingee. EEK! I was a nervous wreck for her.
Tilda Swinton in Jill Sander. Again, the dress is okay alone, but my goodness, she's all one color from head to toe. She is in desperate need of some color!
I am all for having your own style and having fun with fashion, but seriously? Helena Bonham Carter definitely marches to the beat of her own drum. This is just plain scary from the top of her big 'ole 80's hair down to her different color shoes! EEK!
Again, Claire Danes won Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Made For TV Movie for Temple Grandin AND my other favorite, Jim Parsons, won for best actor in a Comedy Series for his brilliant portrayal of Sheldon Cooper on Big Bang Theory. Glee took home the best Musical or Comedy Series. YAY!
