Well that was ... sedate. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were great but there just wasn't enough of them. Where were the skits? Lots of comedy stars were presenters but unfortunately were not given any room to provide the laughs the show so sorely needed (special shout out to Aziz though). What did you think?

And that's all folks. Tina and Amy bid you all a good night, saying "we're going home with Jodie Foster".

George Clooney joins the cast and crew on the stage (he was a producer on the film).

Actress Jessica Chastain.

Actress Jessica Chastain.

"I've been on the sidelines for YEARS," says Jessica, so this award means a lot.

And it goes to Jessica Chastain. She's one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood right now so we can't complain too much (doesn't mean we won't though!). We was robbed!

Best actress in a movie drama is up. Fingers crossed for Naomi.

Tina and Amy are back. "Please welcome a middle-aged George Clooney".

Anne Hathaway took over the microphone to thank those she forgot earlier. This is a bad trend, a very bad trend. Get it together people! Since when were the Golden Globes about diligence?

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Les Misérables
Moonrise Kingdom
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Silver Linings Playbook
And the winner is: Les Misérables

Jeremy Renner takes the stage to introduce the now controversial Zero Dark Thirty. It is going gangbusters at the US box office (and stars Joel Edgerton) but won't hit Australian cinemas until Jan 31.

Jackman said the first day of rehearsals were humiliating and he went home convinced he should back out of the film. Deborah changed his mind. Thanks Deb! (There is a Russell Crowe barb in this but I just can't bring myself to write it. Joan Rivers wouldn't be happy with me.)

He says he has the most amazing wife in the world in Deborah Lee Furness. Look out Jennifer Garner, you've got competition! More seriously, he rattled off a very impressive list of names and also gave an anecdote about the film - now that's how you give a speech!

Hugh comes to the stage saying "wow". He is still recovering from the flu and is stammering a bit which is very unlike him. The man is usually unflappable.

She announces Best actor in a comedy or musical, and it's HUGH!!!

Jennifer Garner takes the stage to present an award but starts off by thanking the people that Ben forgot at his behest. She really is a doll.

Christian Bale takes the stage to introduce Silver Linings Playbook, starring Jacki Weaver. Lots of love for this film.

Silver Linings Playbook - Trailer

After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents. Things get challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.

"It took a group to raise this very demented child." Lena is talking for the group yet focusing on herself. Hannah much?

Lena speaks for the group and says they taught her about nakedness - emotional and physical.

And it's Lena again! Paul Rudd looks strangely unamused - I guess Judd Apatow has a new golden child.

Talk show heavyweights Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel take the stage for the best TV comedy awards.

Ben thanks his kids and says his wife Jennifer Garner is "my everything". Awwww. That said, I remember Tom Cruise saying something similar to Nicole Kidman all those years ago. #grainofsalt

Quentin is shooting daggers with his eyes. Uh oh, I don't think you don't want to make Quentin mad.

Ang Lee, Life of Pi

Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained

Ben Affleck, woot woot! He's back baby (and still rocking that beard).

Halle Berry takes the stage to announce best director -- a heavy hitting award, fantastic.

It's time for an ad and we need it. Still plenty of awards to go, and lots of faces we haven't seen, so don't go away.

She thanks her kids "I love you I love you I love you" and it's emotional. New mum Emily Deschanel is crying. "This feels like the end of an era," Jodie says. "Here's to the next 50 years!". Show me a dry eye, I dare you!

Mel Gibson looks enthralled. Or drunk. I can't tell, he isn't showing much range (insert joke).

Public figures are now expected to make their entire lives public "and I'm not Honey Boo Boo", she says. "I have given everything up there (ie, on film) and that's reality enough".

"I hope you won't be disappointed that there isn't a coming out speech tonight because I did that years ago."

She thanks the various crews "we made movies together, and you can't get more intimate than that". Side note: I must really visit a movie set one day.

Jodie Foster.

Jodie says: "For all of you SNL fans: I'm 50!". And I hate to say it, but that is a strong contender for most awkward moment award. I just don't think we expect funny from her. Thoughts?

We get a look back at her career and let's face it, she's amazing. Plus she worked with Mel Gibson - and recently - so she has earned her award.

Turns out he is here to announce the one award that only has one nominee. Jodie Foster for the Cecile B. DeMille Award. Now she can't dare say how surprised she is! (but if she does, don't just drink, skull!).

Iron Man, aka Robert Downey Jnr, takes the stage. Not sure why, too busy staring. Ask me later.

Singer Taylor Swift.

"Taylor Swift, you stay away from Michael J Fox's son," says Tina, in her first shocking barb. "She needs a little me time," Tina explains, referring to Taylor's recent breakup with One Direction star Harry. (can't believe I know that, eek!)

Amy and Tina are back, drinks in hand. "Everyone's getting a little loose now they're all losers," says Amy.

Winners are grinners:

They are here to announce the category where our actual hosts feature - best actress in a comedy.

Jason Bateman and Aziz Ansari take the stage -- what a great combination. Aziz is the loose cannon and Jason is the straight man. I'll just say it now -- next year's hosts??

Liev Schreiber joins the stage to introduce a film about a tragedy and being lost at sea. No, he isn't here for his wife's film The Impossible, but to introduce the 'unfilmable masterpiece' Life of Pi.

The Les Mis star brings the Gervais-like ribbing to the stage, he mentions the cost of Russell Crowe's singing lessons ... "that was a good investment" winkwink. Mark Wahlberg looked horrified, bless.

Sacha Baron Cohen takes the stage with a glass of, cognac? blackcurrent juice? cough mixture? I'd put nothing past him.

Ellen has tweeted that Amy and Tina are hilarious. That's high praise indeed. My major complaint so far is that they haven't been on stage enough.

(ps Ellen, I can't wait for your visit!)

"I have to thank my son, for joining me (in utuero) thoughout the whole process". Nice, but strange. A lot like Claire Danes I guess.

"I have to thank the press who have been so insanely generous to me and for so many years now," says Claire Danes. Smart move Claire, very smart move.

Arnie takes the stage with Sly. What a flashback. They of course can't resist a skit. They are on to announce the best foreign film but instead make fun of each other's accents. Arnie says English is the second language for both of them. Ouch. Glad to see Arnie did indeed bring the awkward goods to the show.

Another ad break. From the awkward files, here's a special red carpet moment with Hugh Jackman and his Les Mis co-star Amanda Seyfried.

He tells his kids he loves them and 'to go to bed'. Awwww.

Debra Messing and Lucy Lui are on to announce the best actor in a TV comedy. Their skit is nonexistant which is disappointing as they are both so fab. Wasted opp methinks.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is introduced. That movie was described to me as "not that bad really". It's always wise to have low expectations.

Quentin says "wow, I'm surprised". There should be a drinking game for that response. Are they surprised? Really?

Tony Kushner, Lincoln
David O. Russell, Silver Linings Playbook
Quentin Taratino, Django Unchained

Here comes RPatz, along with Amanda Seyfried, to announce best screenplay. Considering how bad his year was - and I'm just talking films - he's lucky to be on stage. (too mean?)

Anne said nothing about dreaming a dream or Susan Boyle and I admire her restraint. She is obviously a bigger person than me - which is astounding considering she only ate oatmeal paste.

Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture
Amy Adams, The Master
Sally Field, Lincoln
Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables

The former movie princess thanks Flying Nun Sally Field for the inspiration and proving that someone from, shall we say 'light' beginnings, can go on to do great work. Awwwww. Sally looks touched rather than offended, so that's nice.

"Thank you for this lovely blunt object that I will use as a weapon against self doubt."

"Blurg!" says Anne. "Thanks for that word Tina".

Anne Hathaway wins for Les Mis!

GARRY MADDOX: It's no real surprise but the two Australians nominated in the music categories are out of luck.

Composer Johnny Klimek (Cloud Atlas) was pipped by Mychael Danna (Life of Pi) and Keith Urban ("For You" from Act of Valor) lost out to Adele and Paul Epworth (Skyfall from Skyfall). But as mentioned earlier, Hugh Jackman is the easily best chance of an Australian award for Les Miserables.

She thanks her family and actually seems to mean it. She must come from one of those functional families, I've heard about those. They don't often make for good television though, and so it is here too.

Jennifer Lawrence: "I beat Meryl". And yes, that is AMAZING. Kudos.

I don't think she will be going hungry this awards season. *boom tish* (apols)

Will to Kristen: "What does that say? Murial?" "Yes, Murial for Hope Springs".

And yes, they deliver! They fake having seen all the nominated movies and thankfully they make it funny. "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen -- you know, salmon, and in the Yemen -- aaaaaahmazing"

SNL alumni Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig come on stage. This has got to be good.

And Amy is back, yay! "What a very special guest," she says of Bill. "That was Hillary Clinton's husband!"

...and he introduces Spielberg's Lincoln. Ah, of course.

Glitter and glam on the Globes red carpet

Watch stars arrive on the red carpet for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, including Australian actresses Isla Fisher and Naomi Watts.

PT1M25S http://www.dailylife.com.au/action/externalEmbeddedPlayer?id=d-2cona 620 349

Best Original Song, Motion Picture
"For You," Act of Valor, Monty Powell & Keith Urban
"Not Running Anymore," Stand Up Guys, Jon Bon Jovi
"Safe and Sound," The Hunger Games, Taylor Swift. John Paul White, Joy Williams & T Bone Burnett
"Skyfall," Skyfall, Adele & Paul Epworth
"Suddenly," Les Misérables, Claude-Michel Schonberg & Alain Boublil
And the winner is: "Skyfall," Skyfall, Adele & Paul Epworth

New mum Adele says she came for a night out and was not expecting the award (silly thing).  She is a breath of fresh air, so effervescent! And kept the thank yous short and sweet - now I like her even more!

And the Aussies take another hit -- Keith Urban missed out on best original song. But Adele picked up the gong for Skyfall and really, it was amazing, so well done!

So how much attention should we pay to the Golden Globe awards? Not much says Deadline's Nikki Finke. She lets loose, saying it has 'zero credibility'

She writes: "Studios and networks lavishly lobby the HFPA and almost always score nominations. Actors win in direct correlation to their glamour quotient."

"The only reason I can think of to tune in to the Golden Globes is for the unexpected. Jack Nicholson has mooned the audience, Jim Carrey has talked out of his butt, Christine Lahti was locked in the bathroom, and other unscripted weirdness occurs at this intimate dinner."

I think we'll keep these comments in mind if the Aussies walk away empty handed.

Best Original Score, Motion Picture
Mychael Danna, Life of Pi
Alexandre Desplat, Argo
Dario Marianelli, Anna Karenina
Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek, Reinhold Heil, Cloud Atlas
John Williams, Lincoln
And the winner is: Mychael Danna, Life of Pi

Jennifer Lopez takes the stage in a show-stopping dress. Well, almost, the show is of course still going on. She introduces the best original score for a motion picture award.

John Goodman and Tony Mendez (CIA) come on stage to introduce Argo, 'the film about a movie that was never made'.

Homeland

*sniff* but the Homeland-style jazz music as the winners walk on stage is nice.

Best drama TV series is up...

Salma and Paul are still hanging around ... there's an awkward silence. I was wondering when the awkward would arrive!

And we're disappointed right? But probably not surprised. My vote was for Jeff Daniels. Anyone who can pull off an Aaron Sorkin diatribe, I mean monologue, and still come off as eloquent and intelligent deserves a freaking award. Besides he was in Dumb and Dumber, saynomore.

Now it's time for a speech from the HFPA -- time for a cup of tea then!

Giles Hardie: And how will the Aussies fare? There are four Australians nominated across five different awards, with Nicole Kidman preparing speeches for two categories. The best bet is Hugh Jackman, who is the favourite to win for best actor in a comedy or musical for his performance as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. Jackman also has an interest in the best song category, where his performance in the film of the newly written Suddenly has been nominated, yet it is the writers who take home this award.

Keith Urban has been nominated for his song For You from the movie Act of Valor. Naomi Watts is also thought to have a chance for best actress in a drama (The Impossible), but she is up against Jessica Chastain, who is very likely to take the award for Zero Dark Thirty. Which leaves Kidman's two nominations, neither of which are looking particularly strong. In the best supporting-actress category, where the genres aren't split, she faces strong competition and is considered the outsider, with Anne Hathaway the favourite for Les Miserables. Kidman's chances are better in the best actress in a mini-series or movie-made-for-television category, but this is likely to come down to either Julianne Moore for Game Change or Jessica Lange for American Horror Story: Asylum.

Garry Maddox: The Academy Awards has grabbed all the attention with its nominations. And although the Golden Globes are no reliable predictor of Oscars success, they will play a role.

Oscar nominees who win today will be aware that a slip-up, controversy or messy acceptance speech could affect their chances in the second round of voting.

Hopefully, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting, the Globes will be an entertaining diversion that rewards the deserving and leaves us with some memorable gags.

Much of the interest will be in television, of course. But the best motion picture drama category has produced some fascinating speculation. Indiewire, for example, predicts Argo will win, Life of Pi could win and Zero Dark Thirty should win. But Lincoln isn't favourite to win best picture at the Oscars for nothing.

This category should come down to Lincoln vs Zero Dark Thirty, with Lincoln the most likely winner.

The strongest contenders for best comedy or musical category are Les Miserables, Silver Linings Playbook and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. If Moonrise Kingdom wins, it will be a shock. If Salmon Fishing In The Yemen wins, it will be a scandal.

Tom Hooper's musical should take the trophy, though Silver Linings Playbook has a shot.

Easily the best Australian chance is Hugh Jackman  who not only should win best actor in a comedy or musical for Les Miserables but will win. And well-deserved it will be too.

Zero Dark Thirty.

Zero Dark Thirty.

So the Aussies have missed out on their first award, let's hope it isn't a sign of things to come.

Julianne Moore, Game Change

Who will win the award for most cringe-worthy presenter? The nominees are: Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Steven Spielberg, Bradley Cooper, Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, singer Adele, George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Julia Roberts and Robert Pattinson. My money's on Arnie, although RPatz is a strong contender.

Tina Fey couldn't NOT do a Sarah Palin impression considering Julianne Moore's nomination for Game Change. She flubbed it which was nicely done. There will be no stealing of someone's thunder here!

Tina Fey points her focus on Anne Hathaway: "I haven't seen you that alone and abandoned since you co-hosted the Oscars with James Franco."

It's safe to say that expectations are running high for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler tonight. They have tried to downplay it, promising the ‘sloppiest’ ever hosting performance, but no one really believes it. Why? Take a look at their fantastic comic timing in this Golden Globes promo.

Tina and Amy say they have no intention to pick on people - Ricky Gervais did it and they brought him back to host again for a second time.

Sofia Vergara is, as expected, spilling out of a super-slick, strapless, sequin dress. It's black, which is a bit of a change. Let's hope she stays in it tonight!

Kate Hudson looks great in her "last-minute" choice. The other dress, she says weighed 500 pounds (?!) so she opted for "comfort". It's black and long-sleeved with gold embellishment. We're not sure who it's by yet...

Red and ballet-pink seem to be the colours of the night. Marion Cottillard is pushing the fashion boundaries by going short to the Golden Globes. It's a red, short (knee-length) Dior dress with an asymetrical hemline. It was made especially for her, for the ocassion.

What do you think?

Sienna Miller?? She's looking 60s-scary, we're disappointed to say. It's a boxy, lacy two-piece with sewn-on lace flowers. The new mum, to daughter, Marlowe, admits her dress is "definitely out there."

Adele says "It's very weird coming here" seeing all the stars she's grown to love in films. For her first awards night, she's in Burberry. She's nominated for her song "Skyfall" from the latest Bond film. Singing it made her feel like "Frank Sinatra," she says.

Keith Urban has given wife, Nicole Kidman's dress "Two thumbs up." She's in Alexander McQueen. We like her structured look. Keith and Nicole are both up for awards tonight - Aussie, Aussie, Aussie oi oi oi

Sarah Berry, Kate Waterhouse: Taylor Swift has gone for a sophisticated look, in a sleek "eggplant" dress with a high symetrical neckline. We think it's DKNY. "This is such a fancy night," she says. Always humble and sweet, but looking very grown up tonight!

Sarah Berry, Kate Waterhouse: Hugh Jackman and wife, Deborah Lee Furness are relaxed and looking super-smart. Both in black, Deborah is wearing a simple dress with an asymetrical neckline. Hugh says he's happy now he's regained the weight he lost for Les Mis - says he lost nearly 20 kg and didn't drink water for a day before filming one scene.

Sarah Berry, Kate Waterhouse: Jennifer Lawrence has the flu. She's looking elegant in a red Dior Haute Couture dress. It's strapless and cinched at the waist with a silver belt.

aziz ansari: Aziz Ansari from Parks and Recreations is hilarious. He tells Ryan Seacrest he's in "Kevin Dior - actually, Christian Dior"

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Naomi Watts and Liev Schrieber are looking like a seriously classy couple. She's in a maroon fitted, long-sleeved, backless dress with drop ruby earrings. He's looking schmick in a classic suit with a skinny tie. She'll definitely be on our best-dressed list.

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Ryan Seacrest is chatting to Jessica Chastain. She's in a Calvin Klein dress - she calls the colour "sea foam" ??

The colour looks gorgeous on her skin tone. We wonder whether it's a bit 'blousy' and baggy around the top though?

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Lucy Lui is in a Carolina Herrera pale blue, floral dress. She drescribes it as a "romantic dress with a modern dress." Kate describes it as "a grandma's curtain." Thoughts?

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Jodie Foster is set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. She'll be getting it from her good pal, Robert Downey Jr. She looks slick in a Giorgio Armani sequinned metallic dress and straight hair. She only tried the dress on last night and says she's nervous about tonight.

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Claire Danes is simple and striking in red Versace. She's there with her hubby, Hugh Dancy. She's looking incredible and we can't believe she only gave birth a month ago!

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Julia Louis-Dreyfuss has nailed it in Vera Wang. Looking very classy indeed. Getting the thumbs up all round.

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Jessica Chastain has arrived. We've just glimpsed her in a baby blue chiffon dress with a plunging neckline and her beautiful hair out. We can't wait to see her in full.

Isla Fisher is looking glamourous in gold - has added some sparkle to the red carpet with her bejewelled gown. We like it, not in love yet.

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Zooey Deschanel is our first real thumbs down. She looks a little uncomfortable in a 1980s-style red prom dress, hair is a bit 'blah' and looks like she may have borrowed her mum's pearls. The metallic nails are the killer blow.

Sarah Berry, Kate Waterhouse: Giuliana Rancic normally nails it, but we're not convinced about this one. Looks "a bit hectic," Kate says. "She looks like she's in a western saloon," Sarah says.

Sarah Berry, Kate Waterhouse: Megan Fox looks stunning. Theme of the night seems to be old school glamour. She is in a Dolce and Gabbana lace 'Ballet pink' - like Amy Adams - strapless dress. Hair is a 40s inspired blow wave with a side part. Jewellery is simple - drop jewel earrings. We like it.

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Amy Adams is in a Marchesa 'ballet pink' fitted strapless lace gown with a tulle fishtail. Kate thinks she looks elegant and the hair compliments style of dress. We wonder whether she looks a little washed out with the colour though? Verdict: pretty, but not a showstopper

Kate Waterhoue, Sarah Berry: Julianne Hough is in Monique Lhuillier. She's gone big hair, dark eyes and big spandangled dress. Gorgeous top, but we're not fans of the frou frou. What do you think?

Kate Waterhouse, Sarah Berry: Debra Messing has hit the red carpet first. She's looking 'OK' in simple, black Donna Karan dress. She looks elegant, but has played it safe. We're unenthused.

Hayden Pannetiere looks great - very classic and fresh - in a powder puff, super pale cream (pink? - we can't decide) dress. Hair and make up both spot on - she's gets the thumbs up from us.

We've caught glimpses of Claire Danes (red halterneck?) looking stylish and Julianne Hough in something sparkly with a frou-frou skirt - hmmm

Sarah Berry: E!'s top five stars to see tonight are...

5. Anne Hathaway, who's rumoured to be pregnant - will be interesting to check out what she's wearing

4. New mum and nominee, Claire Danes

3. Hollywood leading lady du jour, Jessica Chastain

2. 2013 Golden 'King and Queen' Jennifer Garber and Ben Affleck. He's a 'true stud' the presenters say and they're a 'stunning' couple. "It's all about Ben and Jen."

1. Jennifer Lawrence

Do you agree?

Sarah Berry: OK, here're are a few things we're expecting this morning.


We're hoping for big things from Hayden Panettiere's hair, given these are some of the options she's tossing up:

Glamour magazine has predicted the beauty trends for tonight will be nail art - think sparkles, hundreds and thousands and pictures, heavy metal eyes, goth glam lips and twisted hair. Agree?

Sofia Vergara - who's nominated for her role in Modern Family - is anticipating ANOTHER wardrobe malfunction: "I always try, but some things happen that you cannot control," she said. "You know, it's a lot of a drama. You get in and out of cars and run because you're late backstage, and you have to try to go to the bathroom with those dresses. It's hard! They get a lot of wear and tear. It's a big possibility that things happen."

What do you think - is it that hard to keep your top on?

Sarah Berry: Good morning Globers!

It looks like it's ladies night tonight, with comic powerhouse duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting the event. They are, of course, excited!

It's the night where "the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the horrible, disgusting people of television," Amy says. "It's a very kind of, sloppy, loud party," Tina chips in.

They are urging people to play a (responsible) GG drinking game. Maybe not appropriate for us given the time of day… unless of course you're holding a GG boozy brunch?

Here are their rules:

1. Drink anytime an actress cries in a speech.

2. Drink any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage.

3. Drink any time someone says, "I didn't prepare anything!"

4. Eat a meatball sub any time someone thanks Harvey Weinstein.

5. Take off an article of clothing any time they show Judi Dench.

6. Take off an article of clothing any time Maggie Smith wins.

  • Breaking Bad was robbed! Homeland is ok but not in the same league. In fact, this last season pretty much jumped the shark. Silly plot and silly ending.

    In contast, Breaking Bad just keeps getting better every season. Doubt if Homeland will be around after 5 seasons.

    Not sure about the films that won for best picture. I've only seen Life of Pi out of that lot. Saw Les Mis but didn't care for it much though Hugh and Anne deserved their Globes.

  • No actor in history has occupied a higher percentage of a movies "lead" role and been considered "supporting" as Christopher waltz in django. Must have twice the dialogue of any other actor in the film and is onscreen for 95% as lead or co lead. Plus he bumped do caprio who should have won it from the same movie and actually is a supporting actor.

    Hope Jessica lawrence wins at oscars.

    No way on gods clean earth is les miserables a better film than silver linings playbook.

    Nice to see the horrendously overrated Kathryn bigelow basically shut out.

    Is Daniel day Lewis a curse ? He so dominates best actor that it may impact the films chance of best picture, such as there will be blood.

    When history looks back at homeland vs breaking bad it will be with shame. Walter better be there next year.

What was Marion Cotillard thinking - she is usually radiant in Dior. Jessica Chastain's gown is ill fitting, love Lucy Liu for wearing a print and think the only winners are the hosts, Amy Adams and Kerry Washington.

    • I cried in the trailer, and I wasn't the only one. I'm starting to think sitting through The Impossible will be ... impossible.

  • If Anne Hathaway indeed praised Sally Field for her work in the Flying Nun, she was wrong to disregard the young Field's precocious Streep-like mastery of that most complex and tortured of screen characters - Gidget.

  • What was with Debborah Lee-Furness having her back to the stage during Anne Hathaway's acceptance? Is Hugh in trouble?

  • Most of those dresses look the same. All cream / beige and sparkly. Havent seen one stand out. Where is Natalie Portman? She usually looks the best.

    • Agreed. Homeland was indeed a let down. That explosion felt shoe horned into the entire story - the cliched season finale where the protagonist had essentially become man on the run? Please! I felt a song and dance number somewhere in there or at least a guest appearance by Steve Buscemi would have added that much needed "zing" TV execs talk about. Here's hoping Season 3 of Homeland has giant robots in it.

    • when was the last time the golden globes handed out best director to somebody not nominated for the oscar in the same category. Wondering if the academy voters want their voting slips back.

  • The neckline on Taylor Swift's dress is horrible - nobody ever looks good with the high square and stringy straps style. Plus, it's a bit 1997.
    And Lucy Liu's is awesome. Yes, it has curtain-ish elements, but the print on that fabric is fan-bloody-tastic.

  • Who’d have thought 6 months ago that Salmon Fishing in the Yemen would end up with more nominations that either The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey or The Dark Knight Rises.

  • I never thought I'd say this, but I'm really looking forward to the Golden Globes tonight. The nominations are so diverse and the awards season so far full of surprises, that it will make for a fascinating evening. Daniel Day-Lewis and Hugh Jackman are the only two real certainties tonight.

    Would love to see Benedict Cumberbatch picked up a prize for Sherlock. And Adele’s Skyfall – and I hope it collects the Oscar too. It’s streets ahead of any song that has won that prize in the past 10 years or so. It sounds like something John Barry would have written for Shirley Bassey back in the 1960s.

  • It would be cool if the men started to wear costumes form their movies, for example, Hugh Jackman as wolverine, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Henry Cavill as Superman, the list goes on. Wearing a black tie and saying blah designed it, who cares its the same suit my grand dad has.
