"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

Red Carpet Globe Lineups

I'm frantically trying to prep my final Oscar predictions (so difficult this year. Wheeee) and realizing with great sadness that I don't have anymore time to talk about the Golden Globes. Oh, that they'd space things out a little. So herewith some hastily assembled photos and super brief gawking at Globe looks. 

Starting with a gallery I've dubbed "Trying Too Hard / Barely Trying" -- guess who's doing which? -- and moving on to best & worst after the jump...

Robbie, Heard, Roberts, Witherspoon & Schilling

I placed Margot Robbie and Amber Heard side by side because you know up until the Wolf of Wall Street they were probably competing for the same va va voom roles. I don't understand Reese or Julia's red carpet looks hardly ever but as Former America's Sweethearts with more money than god they could probably care less how well they fare on red carpet recaps 'round social media each year. As for Taylor Schilling... Orange is the New Black is like a godsend for television but when you're having your big showbiz moment, and big showbiz moments are always possibly your only big showbiz moments, you really have to step it up several notches past this. 

Worst Dressed!

Paula Patton, Sandra Bullock, Hayden Panetierre, Berenice Bejo, and

Is Bullock doing an ode to gender neutral parenting? alien neopolitan? The great thing about making worse dressed lists is that you can just take off the dress and make best lists next week. Let's not dwell. 

Red is the Warmest Color

Edie Falco, June Squibb, Julie Delpy, Lupita Nyong'o, and Amy Adams

Movie titles were all about "Blue" this year but the hot color this weekend was RED. I'm sure people complained that Edie Falco looked like a christmas present but she IS a gift to the world, so why not? I'm actually kind of crazy about the shape of Julie Delpy's bodice. More famously both Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong'o risked cape friendly sheath apparel and both won gold ARGHSTOPREMINDINGME... trying again... and both won Best Dressed. Yes.

The other most popular color was some variation on gold, gold details, gold texture, champagne almost gold sparkle...

Gold for Golden

Emma, Jacqueline, Lizzy, Ben Foster's, and Son of Bruce

Question: Why aren't more people talking about Lizzy Caplan's awesome sleeves? Very unusual but they work for her. Is it because she was (stupidly) not nominated for her show-carrying work on Masters of Sex, my new premium cable pet. 

But this was my personal favorite...

And not just because Elisabeth Moss proved this year that there was infinitely more to her than Peggy on Mad Men with her sensational work in Jane Campion's Top of the Lake.

Agree with everything except Reese. I thought the simplicity worked.

I would add Naomi Watts and Kate Beckinsale to the well dressed group and Emilia Clark to the worst.,

If anyone needed a reminder that June Squibb has spent most of her career onstage, she's wearing a red velvet curtain.

I get why it's been declared one of the worst here and elsewhere, but I actually really like Bullock's dress. Maybe the fit/cut could be slightly better and maybe she shouldn't have worn in at the Globes, but it's tons of fun.

The trio of red goddesses, Delpy, Nyong'o, and Adams, overheated ME. Lordie, they were all so hot. I also love what hosts Fey and Poehler wore on the red carpet and during the show. Moss is superb (though wish her hair was better).

I love Amy Adams, but she looked like the captain of the mathletes at the prom.

I hadn't gotten a good look at Laura Dern's dress - she looks HOT. Love the hair. And I hadn't seen a picture of Lizzy at all - my boyfriend is going to be so proud of her and her sleeves. He's loved Eva Green for years literally just because she was always wearing sleeves on the red carpet.

Moss and Nyong'o were my faves.

JLaw wins the night again by picking a dress viewers at home could emulate! She is the gift to the internet that keeps on giving and she doesn't even go on social media!

Margot Robbie was stunning—then again, she'd be stunning in a Jacques Marcel burlap sack.

I thought Sandra Bullock looked scary on the show in widescreen HD, but then I saw some photos where she looked marvelous. Very tricky pulling off a look that works on the red carpet, at a table getting soused, on stage presenting and/or accepting, bantering in the press area, and in 2D online/newspapers/magazines...

I guess Julia Roberts asked her hairdresser for a '60yo lady going to her son's wedding' hairdo?

Carlos-that is perfect

The word was that Amber did audition for Wolf of Wall Street -- I wonder if that girl will ever catch a break beyond being Johnny Depp's future ex-wife.

I'm surprised that so many people don't like Julia Robert's dress. I think she looks fantastic.
But maybe I only feel so because I just watch Dowton Abbey Season 1 again.

Moss' dress was wonderful, but her hair was cringe inducingly bad.
