DivaDebbi's 2012 Golden Globes Report Card

69th Annual Golden Globes

OMG!  So much GG post mortem ground to cover!.  I do like this's fun to see the worlds of film and television relaxed, air kissing, and swilling cocktails together.  Ricky Gervais righted his misguided performance last year and was his usual witty self, even though he looked like he was moonlighting from his gig in a Mariachi band.

Fashion and Beauty Trends quickly became apparent as we saw oodles of trains, strapless gowns, rich color, pale nudes, ponytails, touseled waves, low hanging-side up dos, red lips and God willing, no more headbands anytime soon...

The A-Team were so blindingly beautiful, that the fairy dust they sprinkled almost created the illusion of an awards show without assured, there were plenty.  But first let's focus on the all stars:

Chalize in couture Dior (Goddess)

Jessica Alba in Gucci (flawless)

Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci (breathtaking)

Sophia Vergara (my Girl crush)

Angelina in Atelier Versace ('Nuf said, it's Angie)

Kate Beckinsale (perfect, as usual)

Madeline Stowe in Vera Wang (jaw dropping at 53 or any age)

Nicole Richie (I want that ponytail and so do you)

Morena Baccarin in George Chakra (WOW!!!)
Viola Davis (never prettier)
Shailene Woodley (fabulous newbie debut)
Rooney Mara (finally more gorgeous than Goth)

Claire Danes in J. Mendel (I was rooting for her win so hard I nearly cracked a tooth)

Did I miss anyone??? Oh. Yes...

Most Overwrought- Others will no doubt disagree with me, but these are the GG's not the AA's and Elle, honey, you were just presenting.  Here's who I think wore too much dress and too much hair (amongst other things):

Elle in Zac Posen

Reese in Zac Posen (Jessica Rabbit redux with ungroomed hair)

Salma Hayek in Gucci (too much tata and too much hair)

Laura Dern ( Mrs. Green Giant. Sorry)

Paula Patton (Pretty dress, but it's still Big Bird Yellow)
Lea Michele in Marchesa (Get over yourself already)
Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen (Channeling the Queen Mum)

The B-Listers- Pretty but just missed.  Natalie Portman in Lanvin, Frieda Pinto in Prada, the adorable Emma Stone in Lanvin (marred by an ugly eagle buckle belt), Debra Messing, Katherine MacPhee in Donna Karan, Jodie Foster in Armani, Berenice Bejo, Zooey Deschanel in Prada , Madonna, Kate Winslet in Jenny Packham, Diane Lane, Diana Agron, (beautiful hair and makeup worn with a red Chinese paper lantern).

The C-Listers- Never, ever, get it right:

Heidi Klum and Kristen Wiig all but disappeared

Michelle Williams (dowdy in Jason Wu and I've blocked out the headband)

Tina Fey in Oscar (Better. Maybe next time)
Tilda  Swinton (as David Bowie)
Julianne Moore in Chanel (better than usual)
Glenn Close in Armani Prive (better than usual)
Jane Lynch in David Meister (Can't someone make her a fabulous pant or jumpsuit)????......

She always reminds me of "Scout" in To Kill a Mockingbird, kicking and scratching to get out of that dress Atticus made her wear.

And finally the D-List-  Cry. Fire your stylist. Invest in a 3-way mirror:
Elizabeth McGovern (channeling Maria Von Trapp)

Julianna Margulies in Naeem Khan (looking, well, grape)

Julie Bowen (as Glinda, the Witch of the North)
Jessica Biel and Amanda Peet (Nanna called. She wants her kitchen curtains back)

Connie Britton (Had to be a calendar glitch... she got the GG's mixed up with next Sunday's Bridal Shower)
Sarah Michelle Geller in Tie Dye Monique L'Hullier (would you believer her 2 year old picked it??? Uh yeah)

Meryl Streep dressed for a Hoot'nanny

Why Meryl??? Why???

Truly it baffles.   Here is my pledge:  Ms. Streep, I will fly anywhere, on my own dime and my own time, if you would allow me the honor of dressing you for the SAG Awards, or the Oscar's, for which you will most certainly get the nod for your work in Iron Lady.  We can do better.
So my lovelies, I'm officially wiped.  Would love to hear who you thought killed it... See you at the SAGs.



  1. You don't happen to be a follower of this blog do you? 

    It's just you're very much in sync with my pal DivaJulia (yes, she's a Diva too ;-))who also has a loathing for Lea Michele and often mentions the Bowie/Swinton thing :-D 

  2. Loved!! And laughing as usual!!

  3. Thanks Q.!  Glad you enjoyed!  Hope it deserves a retweet on the tweet deck!
