Mickey Rourke picked up the award for Best Actor last night at the Golden Globes, and gave a very special shout-out. Now I haven't seen The Wrestler yet, but I've been hearing all about his big comeback in this film, and I totally teared up during the speech. At the very end, he thanks all his pups, present and passed, because "sometimes, when a man's alone, that's all you've got is your dog." Awwww. Check out his entire acceptance speech when you read more
Golden Globe beauties know a special clutch can elevate a red carpet ensemble. The fantastic frock will always be center of attention, but think of the clutch as the icing on the cake. Were you paying attention to who was holding what last night? Take my quiz to see if you can guess the Golden Globe star by her cunning clutch!
What doesn't kill you, earns you a Best Actress Golden Globe! That is, if you are the incredibly talented Kate Winslet. The star of Revolutionary Road, a must-see for all married moms, also took home the award for best supporting actress for her work in The Reader.
Aside from making incredible movies — Little Children, Titanic, The Life of David Gale, to name a few — the British born beauty is raising two children — Mia, 8, and Joe, 5 — with her husband, director Sam Mendes. At last night's awards, the mum thanked everyone from her costars to her hair and makeup artists. But, she saved the best kudos to her kids for last on both occasions, even mentioning that they were on set during the filming of Revolutionary Road. During her first acceptance, she said:
To my children, Mia and Joe, who are watching this on TV. Look. I won! Thank you for coming on this adventure with mommy.
Congratulations to this down-to-earth mama who piggy backs her kids home from school. We can't wait until her next performance!
Whether you loved it or hated it, you've got to hand it to Debra Messing for going a bit bolder with her color scheme last night, particularly when it came to those heavily lined peepers.
The founder of Lorac Cosmetics, Carol Shaw, was the makeup artist behind Messing's look. She applied sultry green and black accents, which complemented Messing's midnight blue Zac Posen gown, keeping the cheeks and lips soft and neutral. And I've got the how-to when you read more
Need to update your updo? Take a cue from stars at the Golden Globe Awards, who gave their hair a twist — literally. Whether they were adding curls to straight hair or just letting their natural waves flow, these stars suggest that a little movement can have a big impact on the red carpet. Read on to see some of the evening's best.
ICYMI, Ryan Seacrest got denied by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie last night when he tried to run down from his platform and get an interview on the red carpet at the Golden Globes. On his radio show this morning, he said he didn't think the power couple knew who he was and he also remembered after the fact that it was against the rules to join NBC's teams on the carpet. Or did Brad and Angelina purposely avoid the host considering how awkward their 2007 Golden Globes interview went? Watch the video below and tell us — why did Ryan get snubbed?
Poor Angelina. First she had to endure (well, we all did) Anne Hathaway's interminable acceptance speech at the Critics' Choice Awards, and let's just say she didn't look too happy about it. Then, last night at the Golden Globe Awards, best actress winner Kate Winslet, when apologizing to the other actresses in the category, couldn't remember who "the other one" was she was apologizing to! Oh, man. Keep it short and sweet, people, or your speech will go down in the "You like me, right now, you like me!" annals of annoying acceptance speeches.
Mining past decades for inspiration, Hollywood's hottest hairstylists gave their celebrity clients beautiful curls for the Golden Globe Awards. The look isn't about literally mimicking the look of the '40s and '50s, though. Instead, these stars borrow from past silver-screen beauties while letting their hair have more movement. Is this a preview of what we'll see at the Oscars next month? We'll just wait and see who'll ride that wave, but for now, check out some of the evening's best vintage-inspired hairstyles.
No red carpet is ever complete without major bling. You better believe that the ladies who attended last night's Golden Globes did some major borrowing of jewels. Lorraine Schwartz, Chopard, Cartier, and Fred Leighton were the main suppliers. What did they supply? Why, blitzed-out bangles, ginormous teardrop earrings, diamond necklaces, and so much more. Eva Mendes chose to dazzle her neck with a Van Cleef & Arpels turquoise choker. Isn't it amazing? Check out more awe-inspiring jewelry from last night's star-studded affair.
- Christopher Nolan's speech accepting the award for Heath Ledger was moving and sweet without being too much. He talked about "a hole ripped in the future of cinema" when Ledger died, but that for anyone who worked with him or even saw his performances, "he will be eternally missed but never forgotten."
- Watching Sally Hawkins stumble her way through her acceptance speech was cute, then awkward, then finally cute again. I love Emma Thompson giving her a little assist from the audience.
- I cannot believe they showed that clip for Slumdog Millionaire. It needed to come with a spoiler alert!
- One of the funniest things about the Golden Globes is trying to spot who's been drinking during the ceremony. Tom Wilkinson, maybe? Emma Thompson? Any others?
