Golden Globes Recap

So, the Golden Globes were last night. You guys know how much I love awards season, right?

So let's get right into it.

Five Favorite Dresses
Sofia Vergara in Zac Posen (that necklace!) 
Lupita Nyong'o Ralph Lauren (that cape!) 
Oliva Wilde in Gucci (that sparkly baby bump!)
Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney (that... everything! God, I love her.)
Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad (that waist! this dress is flawless.)

Five Favorite WTF Moments

Jaquelline Bissett's Awkward Acceptance Speech. Hands down, one of the weirdest speeches I've ever seen. 
Everyone's five mile walk to the stage. They were really crammed in there last night, and it looked like everyone was having trouble getting to the stage. Plan better next year, HFP. 
"Fun" Facts. This actually happened before the show, on the red carpet. E! was including fun facts about the stars all night, and one of the fun facts they decided to show was this: 
Ummmmmm, I think you need a refresher on what the word "fun" means. (They apologized.)
Woody Allen winning an award that... he didn't want. The HFP chose to award the Cecil to Woody Allen. Except Woody Allen wasn't there. In fact, he didn't even want the award. I've never been a huge fan of his, but aside from that, there are plenty of people who would have been willing recipients. The whole thing was just weird. (Bonus: Ronan Farrow had a funny zinger on Twitter.) 
Diane Keaton singing. Or basically everything Diane Keaton. Sorry, I kinda hate her. I've always found her just completely irritating. Accepting an award for someone and singing the girl scout song was just weird. 

Five Favorite Gifs
I think we can all agree we want to be Emma Thompson when we grow up.
Well, you handled that well. Kind of.
What every non-blogger looks like when their blogger friends want to take selfies.

Five Favorite Winners
AMY FREAKIN' POEHLER. It is about time. Normally, I don't like winners who get onstage and gush about how "shocked" they are. There is literally a one in five chance you're going to win, you don't get to be THAT surprised. But she deserved her surprise. Parks and Rec has long been an under appreciated show, and I'm so glad she's finally getting recognized for it.
Matthew McConaughey. I haven't seen Dallas Buyer's Club yet, but I just love him, so I'm so glad he won. I love that he's growing into a serious actor (whatever that means).
Andy Samberg. Such a nerd. So adorable. I love him.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine. A win for a show like this one is a win for all the quirky shows that are on TV right now. All of the shows like New Girl, Mindy Project, even Happy Endings all have large, loyal fan bases, but have never gotten the critical reception as well. The fact that Brooklyn Nine-Nine won 
Leonardo DiCaprio. I die a little inside every time I remember that my man Leo doesn't have an Oscar. Is winning a GG a hint that he could possibly win one this year?! Keep your fingers crossed!

What was your favorite moment last night?

Loved Margot Robbie's look and she did kind of endearingly handle the situation with the cue cards. Diane Keaton's singing was just nutso. And Woody Allen married his stepdaughter- yay lifetime achievement.

Haha I read a funny tweet last night that said something like, "Do you think we should have put in aisles" - GG planners 10 minutes before the show. Those walks were CRAZY!!! I looooved Amy's many dresses and Emma Thompson's shoes hahah!
