A Golden day in Hollywood.

Why hello there dear freaders, glad you could make it to today's Hollywood post. It's going to be a little off the norm since the Golden Globes were on Sunday and I'm a sucker for awards shows so sit back, enjoy the pictures and don't laugh at me too much:
  • First of all, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Kate! Seriously when Kate Winslet's name was announced as the first winner of the night I let out a squeal I was so happy. The woman's been nominated seven times, she deserved a freakin win! But ohmygoodness when she won the second award for Revolionary Road I about lost it. Yes I am a huge nerd I'll admit this, but when she was giving her speech I definitely teared up I was so happy for her. And when she thanked Leo! Ah! My heart couldn't handle it, I was thirteen all over again. Yeah and I'm pretty sure they've taken over the top spot of my favorite duos, my goodness, heart them. Seriously, congrats Kate! You are awesome.

  • Okay and just because I love them so much, here's a pic of my fave duo on the red carpet. Oh and while we're on the subject of Leo and his non-win, I hope the Wrestler really is good, because it doesn't look appealing to me at. all. But it's okay Leo you already have a Golden Globe, just aim for the Oscars okay?

  • And done gushing about Kate and Leo. Next up, Heath Ledger. It's crazy for me still, almost a year later, that Heath isn't around. Even after watching the Dark Knight again on Sunday (and being totally creeped out, in a good way), it still didn't hit me that if he won on Sunday, he wouldn't be there to accept his award. So when he did win, and Christopher Nolan went up to accept it, I couldn't help but tear up again. His speech was a perfect tribute to Heath and I'm glad to hear that his award will be going to Matilda, as it should.

  • In other good Golden Globes news, Slumdog Millionaire swept for every award it was nominated for. Seriously, this movie is the sleeper hit of the year and I love it. It's such a good movie with a great story behind it and it just made me so happy to see everyone involved with the movie sincerely overjoyed whenever it won an award. So if you haven't seen it yet, I say you do, like now! What are you waiting for?

  • One of the funniest moments of the night was when 30 Rock won for best comedy and Tracy Morgan was the one to accept the award. Oh man, I couldn't stop laughing. So far I can only find a short clip of it, but if you want a good laugh search for the whole thing, "Take that Cate Blanchett!", haha. Oh and Tina's acceptance speech for winning best actress was pretty classic as well, "Take that haters!"

  • Ooh, ooh! The other win of the night I was pretty excited for was Colin Farrell for In Bruges. I'm pretty sure I was one of the few people to see that movie and I really enjoyed it. So congrats to Colin for being such a surprise win!

  • As for the outfits of the night, I think all of the dresses sort of looked the same. Lots and lots of layering and fabric and big pieces of fabric sticking out on them. With that said however, I did have a couple faves:
    Isla Fisher

    don't know why, but I really liked this one
    a different color may have worked better
    but I'm still a fan

    Eva Longoria Parker

    seriously, she worked it

    Jane Krakowski

    seriously love this one, except
    where is the other strap?
    Maybe ScarJo or Vanessa took it finally, haha

    Laura Linney

    absolutely love this one
    heck I would rock it, maybe a little less bling
    but I'd rock it

    Mary Louis Parker

    she'll always be Ruth to me
    and I just love this dress, the shape, the color

  • Oh man and how did I only include Leo in the dashing men category? Okay one for the road since this post is getting ridiuculous. And the hottie winner is....

    Simon Baker

    Seriously, the man is hot
Oh and in case you missed it, the full list of the Golden Globe nominees and winners can be found here, enjoy.

Anyhoo, what was your fave part of the show? Anything I missed?

And expect another Hollywood post this week, I mean, I have to give the Affleck's time to share the new baby's name, haha.

happy tuesday!

I think I was one of those few other people who saw In Bruges and was totally glad he won, he was great in that movie. And oh my god, Mary Louise Parker's dress was to die for.

Maxie said...

I don't even like Eva Longoria, but when I saw her I was freaking out-- that dress is amazing.

ria said...

ohhh pretty new header :) I can't wait to find out Jen and Ben's new daughter's name!!!

Sweetbabs said...

I have never been on for celebs but your blog has gotten me hooked. Just had to let you. I agree Mary Louis will still be Ruth no matter what she is in. I simply love Fried Green Tomato's.

Mandy said...

I was happy for Kate Winslet as well! Mary Louise Parkers dress is beautiful and Simon Baker -- be still my beating heart, he is gorgeous!!

Ashley said...

Apparently I like commenting in bullets today. My writing mode has been switched off. So:

* I squealed and clapped aloud when Alec Baldwin won. Yay 30 Rock!
* Tina Fey is the best woman ever. I want to marry her.
* Seeing Jack and Rose together makes my heart go on. (Haha. I crack myself up. What? It's not funny? Oh.)
* Tracy Morgan IS Tracy Jordan. I clapped again with delight when he talked. Good times.
* I feel SO sorry for Tony Schalob because I feel like no one loves "Monk."
* I just looked him up on IMDB and apparently he's won, like, 3 Emmys and 1 Globe for "Monk."
* Never mind. As you were.

wow i hadn't even seen or noticed that Isla Fisher was at the GG's.

simon baker = MAJOR YUMMINESS.

Deutlich said...

Dude! I did not realize Simon Baker was Australian!

I heard him talk during the GG news briefs and about flipped my shit!

Dolce said...

Eva would look so much better if she didn't pose like she was sucking the life out of her cheeks. She look like a manniquin.

Isla, on the other hand, LOVE HER!

Therapeutic Ramblings said...

"Leo...I've loved you for 13 years"....HAHA!

Sarah said...

oh how I wish Kate and Leo were a real couple...

Amanda. said...

Oh the Globes. Loved.

Umm...I thought Patrick
Dempsey looked dashing.
As I always do. I also
was pretty tickled by the
gorgeousness of Demi and
Ashton. Um-holllla.

rachel elizabeth said...

can kate and leo just get married already and have babies? my love for them is unsurpassed. jack and rose make my life.

Ashley D said...

Wasn't Kate amazing! I loved when she won and was so surprised. And Tina Fey was hilarious. I had so much fun watching the GG. :)

Jaime said...

Seriously, Laura Linney's dress was the most beautiful one there!!!

Hillary said...

Mary Louise Parker looked gorgeous!

Classy in Philadelphia said...

This was a fab golden globes round-up! I absolutely adored Kate Winslet. Her speech was awesome, and I'll admit I almost teared up.

Eva Longoria Parker looks hot as always.

I loved Eva Mendes's dress.

Miley Cyrus and Drew Barrymore, not so much.

I really need to go to see Slumdog Millionaire!

WeezerMonkey said...

Simon Baker never did it for me...until I started watching "The Mentalist."

And now I understand.

sarahbelledotcom said...

she BLEW ME AWAY. being all, more gorgeous than ever, and then winning and being so cute during her speeches.

The last time there were that many indians in suits in one place was the 1995 gas station awards.

Julie said...

What I think is funny is that the only movie that I did see was In Bruges. I love that movie!!

ecrunner said...

Wow what a night for the Golden Globes huh?! All I have to say is Kate Winslet looked picture perfect Sunday night! She was well deserving of her awards!

Katie Killary said...

I missed it! I was on a plane. Glad you shared though! And I love the new layout - so awesome :o)

saray said...

an Israeli movie won :)

Auburn Kat said...

I have to admit, I didn't even watch it! Thanks for the recap though! I was really happy for Kate!

alexa - cleveland's a plum said...

i saw in brugess!! i loved it, loved.

also i can't get over how hot leo has become.

Bayjb said...

I was so excited for Kate. I almost lost it when she won once and then she did it again and I really yelled out loud!

Elaine A. said...

Came over from Jen's place (Daily Mish Mash).

What did you think of Drew Barrymore's hair? We were making fun of her on twitter! : )

LOVE Simon Baker - YUM-MY!!

I thought it was a little crazy how Kate gushed so much about Leo and then said to her husband, Oh and I love you too honey... Sweet, but a little awkward. But yes, they are gorgeous together.

Ok, think I am done! Glad to visit your blog! : )

Miss Marie said...

Oh man. I'm sad I missed it! Mr. Beagle and I saw In Bruges and LOVED IT! I really want to see the new Kate and Leo movie. The previews looked intense! I can't wait! And those dresses! Wow.

Lauren said...

I love award shows!!

I agree with your dress choices - so pretty!

And I have to admit this. I'm almost certain that I have a girl crush on Kate Winslet. She's so pretty and talented and I was SO HAPPY when she won. Twice. Oh man.

Oh, and obviously I was thrilled about Slumdog. :) I think Samir almost fainted - he's very proud of his country. Ha.

yay for the golden globes!
