Golden Globes 2009

All the stars were aligned for Danny Boyle and the cast of Slumdog Millionaire tonight, as they walked away with 4 Golden Globes - including Best Dramatic Picture. It was a night of tears, some for Kate Winslet who made two grown men cry while graciously accepting her two awards -one being Leonardo diCaprio -  and some for Renee Zelwegger who made a hideously terrible outfit choice.  I'm not sure what was the tackiest part of her outfit - the visible underwire protruding from the front of her dress, or the cutaway sleeves...

The Golden Globes were entertaining, a more relaxed atmosphere than the Oscars allowed the actors to crack jokes (Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan!) and at times talk candidly while accepting their awards.  The tribute to Heath Ledger was a sad moment - watching his scenes as the Joker still feels bittersweet.  Comeback award goes to Mickey Rourke for his win in the Wrestler.  He wears the looks garnered from a rugged life, but his speech was sweet, and he seemed so genuinely happy to have been the dark horse of the night.

So now the stage is set for the Oscars.  Next on my list of movies to see is Doubt, Frost/Nixon, and Waltz with Bashir.

  1. You are so right about Renee Zellweger. I just checked the photos (didn't see the show last night) and that, my friends, is a hot mess. The proportions of the outfit are so wrong, and so is her hair. She usually does so much better. Maybe she needs to let someone other than Carolina Herrera dress her?
