Ah, yes, the awards season--our time to over-evaluate dresses, hair and jewelry on the women, and boorish behavior among the men. Here then, for major awards show number one of 2011, are Musings, Notes & Quotes' winners-and-losers.
Glee. Not only was the show a winner, but so were its stars. Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer won individual hardware and the ensemble cast did a good job of rockin' the red carpet.
Halle Berry. We loved the 'do, the dress, the jewelry and, of course, Halle herself is quite the beautiful woman.
Boardwalk Empire. Yes, this is a good show and yes, Steve Buscemi is one terrific actor.
Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin won for Best Screenplay for The Social Network, and the movie won Best Motion Picture, Drama.
Brangelina. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie looked like a classic Hollywood couple.
Natalie Portman. I thought Portman's dress was perfect for the expectant actress and her acceptance speech for Best Actress (Black Swan) was heartfelt and articulate.
Michael Douglas. Douglas' cancer is in remission; he looked good last night in receiving a standing ovation from the crowd.
Anne Hathaway. Hathaway may have had the dress of the night and her hair was perfect for the total look.
Robert Downey, Jr. and Johnny Depp. Are there two cooler dudes in Hollywood?
January Jones. This girl does not know how to pick out a red carpet outfit. So gorgeous, yet so fashion-challenged...
Sylvester Stallone. Was that a real human being or some sort of robotic character whose head was too big for his body?
Michele Williams. Williams looked like a little girl with a bad prom dress.
Helena Bonham Carter. What was up with the dress and hair? Seriously, did you look in a mirror? This is where the publicist needs to step up and say, "really, you're wearing that!?"
Ricky Gervais. Alright, I know that Gervais is edgy and cutting but the vast majority of last night's comments were downright mean. Let Gervais do stand up and get a more appropriate emcee to this gig.
Robert DeNiro. What was up with Bob's acceptance speech after receiving the lifetime achievement award? The whole "speech" rambled and the comment about the Hollywood Foreign Press and deportation was downright offensive.
Heidi Klum. Heidi, Heidi, Heidi...that dress was, um, a disaster.
