Golden Globes Fashion Flashback: 30 Best Dresses Ever red carpet fashion at the golden globe awards red carpet fashion at the golden globe awards red carpet fashion at the golden globe awards red carpet fashion at the golden globe awards red carpet fashion at the golden globe awards red carpet fashion at the golden globe awards

The Golden Globes never fails to bring some of the most memorable fashion moments of the year. And after all the amazing looks we saw at the People’s Choice Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards this week, we can’t wait to see what Sunday night’s red carpet brings.

Aside from the Oscars, the Golden Globes is the biggest red carpet fashion event of the awards season and it happens relatively early in the season, offering Hollywood’s biggest stars a chance to establish themselves as one’s to watch.

While the Golden Globes and Academy Awards tend to share an equally fancy dress code, there’s a little less pressure to knock it out of the park at the Globes.

Unlike the Oscars, where the fear of a faux pas can be enough to derail even the most adventurous risk-taker, the show can be a chance for stars to play it a little less safe and to try some more fashion-forward and out-of-the-box looks.

So as we continue our countdown to the 2013 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, we’re keeping busy by reminiscing over the amazing Globes’ fashion we’ve seen over the years.

Check out our round-up of the Golden Globe’s most gorgeous gowns of all time.

Who Will Win the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture? (PHOTOS)

Daniel Day-Lewis Bradley Cooper Richard Gere Bill Murry John Hawkes Ewan McGregor Joaquin Phoenix

Among the most heated races at the Golden Globes are the acting categories. Denzel Washington and Daniel Day-Lewis are in a virtual dead-heat for Best Actor in a drama, while newly Oscar-nominated Bradley Cooper (The Silver Linings Playbook) squares off opposite Les Mis frontrunner Hugh Jackman for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.

On Sunday, January 13, the awards will be handed out, but who will win? Who should win? Let Celebuzz help you figure that out with our guide to the Best Actor nominees.

Just like we did for Best Actress in both drama and musical/comedy, we breakdown each of the talented actors nominated, provide an overview of their performance and the bottom line on their chances of winning.

This year is one of the most competitive ever; so many good actors cranked out some truly great performances. While a Golden Globe win is not a definite precursor to Oscar, it certainly doesn’t hurt one’s chances.

Which Motion Pictures Will Win Top Honors at the Golden Globes? (PHOTOS)

In the ramp-up to the Golden Globes, the Oscar nominations have come and gone, leaving a bread-crumb trail of obvious nods and an ocean of dissatisfied grumbles at some of the less-subtle snubs.

In fact, one could argue that between its two two-category system of Drama and Musical/Comedy, the Globes made a much wiser set of selections. And if you haven’t seen several, most or all of these noteworthy nominees, Celebuzz is here to break them down and help you out in the office pool come Monday.

Lincoln, Argo and Zero Dark Thirty are frontrunner for Best Drama at the Globes, while Les Miserables and Oscar-favorite The Silver Linings Playbook duke it out for Best Musical/Comedy.

The Globes air Sunday, January 13 on NBC. Here’s our guide to all of the nominees, including our predictions of who should – and will – win.

Not that we’re playing favorites, but check out Celebuzz’ interview with Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain. And then tell us in the comments below: Which movies are you rooting for?

Best of Golden Globes Beauty

Best of Golden Globe Beauty Angelina Jolie Anne Hathaway Emma Stone Beyonce Eva Mendes Evan Rachel Wood

Each year the Golden Globes brings on a sea of new looks. While the focus may be on the fashion when it comes to the pre-show festivities, it’s the hair and makeup that makes all the difference.

Stunning hair and makeup can turn a just eh dress into a statement-maker and sometimes even save a questionable fashion choice. Meanwhile, the wrong hair and makeup can overshadow even the most gorgeous gown.

And for those of us who don’t have many (or any) occasions to don dramatic evening-gowns, the beauty trends are often the most translatable red carpet trends to real life.

That’s why we’re just as excited to see the latest hair, makeup and nail trends that emerge from Sunday night’s red carpet.

We’ll be here covering the pre-show extravaganza — including all the red carpet’s best beauty looks (and the inevitable misses). But as we countdown to the main event, we’re taking a look back at some of the Golden Globes’ most memorable looks over the years.

Fact is, the Golden Globes are simply another opportunity for stars to play a character — only, unlike the roles that so often win them the globe, this is their chance to play the most gorgeous characters of their choosing.

So it’s no surprise that the past is often a source of inspiration for some of the red carpet’s most memorable looks. There was the old-Hollywood glamour that January Jones channeled, with her platinum ’20s-inspired locks and crimson lips in 2011, and Beyonce’s 2007 disco throwback, with ultra-long, ultra-straight locks and big brows.

That same year, British beauty, Sienna Miller went way old-school, turning to Ancient Greece for inspiration and pioneering wraparound braids on the red carpet.

And let’s not forget the innocent look of Miley Cyrus in 2009, donning long, wavy curls and sweet pink glossy lips. It’s hard to imagine it was the same girl now rocking a bleached-blonde punk-rock ‘do.

From the elegant updos and big bouffants to the dramatic eyes and statement pouts, celebs never fail to bring the bold beauty at the Golden Globes.

Here’s a look back at our favorite beauty moments from the Golden Globes over the years.

Whose red carpet look tops your list of all-time faves? Tell us in the comments section below.

Who Will Win the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture? (PHOTOS & VIDEOS)

Jessica Chastain Maggie Smith Marion Cotillard  Meryl Streep Helen Mirren Jennifer Lawrence Naomi Watts

Before this morning’s Academy Award nominees get their shot at Oscar, they will first have to contend with the Golden Globes.

The Globes offer a decent barometer as to who will go home with Hollywood’s most coveted award. As the town ramps up for the Globes on Sunday, January 13, Celebuzz takes a look at each nominee in the major acting and film categories.

First up: Who will – and should – win Best Actress.

With the Oscar nominations announced, there is some expected overlap between the Academy’s picks and the Hollywood Foreign Press.

Favorites Naomi Watts (The Impossible), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) and Jennifer Lawrence (The Silver Linings Playbook) have emerged as the frontrunners for both awards, with Chastain and Lawrence seemingly in a dead heat for victory.

While a Golden Globe win does not guarantee an Academy Award, it does provide a decent indicator as to who should start making extra room on their mantle.

Check out our breakdown of the actresses in contention and their chances, then share with us your predictions in the comments below!

This year’s Golden Globes just got an extra dose of star power.

Making her first post-baby appearance, Adele will return to the stage Sunday night for the 2013 Golden Globes festivities, where she is nominated for Best Original Song for the latest James Bond caper, Skyfall.

Adele’s single, “Skyfall,” will go head-to-head with Taylor Swift‘s “Safe and Sound” for The Hunger Games, Jon Bon Jovi‘s “Not Running More” for Stand Up Guys, Keith Urban‘s “For You” from Act of Valor, and “Suddenly” from Les Miserables.

Adele’s ballad also earned a nod for Best Original Song at this year’s Oscars, putting the eight-time Grammy winner within reach of her first Academy Award.

The British songstress welcomed her first child, a baby boy with boyfriend Simon Konecki, in October. Since announcing her pregnancy in June, she has maintained a extremely low profile.

Who do you think will take home the Golden Globe: Adele or T-Swift? Sound off in the comments!

Tina Fey In Talks for ‘The Muppets 2′; Josh Brolin Joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt in ‘Sin City 2′

The Muppets 2 just took it to 11 with the help of Tina Fey. The 30 Rock star and host of this year’s Golden Globes is in “late stage negotiations” to star opposite former Globes host, Ricky Gervais, in the Disney sequel. Fey is circling the leading female role in the film, to be directed by the original Muppet’s helmer James Bobin. If Fey can somehow convince Amy Poehler to cameo, we’ll do anything to see it. “Illegal in 7 states”-type of anything. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Less than 24 hours after Joseph Gordon-Levitt signed on for a role in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For comes word of another big casting announcement.Who joined the ensemble?

Academy Award-nominated actor Josh Brolin has locked down role of “Dwight” in the prequel, a part which was previously played by Clive Owen in the original film. Brolin joins returning Sin City stars Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson for Dame, which will unleash all sorts of bloody violence when it hits theaters on October 4, 2013. [Deadline]

Clutch the pearls – even more casting news! Magic Mike’s Alex Pettyfer is one of the names vying for the lead role in the YA-adaptation Divergent, starring The DescendentsShailene Woodley. Newcomers Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) and War Horse’s Jeremy Irvine are also circling the role in the film, which could kick off a Twilight-sized franchise for distributor Lionsgate. [Variety]

Michael Bay bypassed the whole press release thing and took to the internets to announce the latest actor to join the director’s Transformers 4. Newcomer Jack Reynor has joined the first film in a planned trilogy, which takes place 4 years after the events of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Reynor stars opposite Mark Wahlberg in the Paramount tentpole, which promises to be just as loud and explode-y as the previous films when it’s released on June 27, 2014. Click here to read more about the casting on Michael Bay’s blog. [MichaelBay.com]

One writer has kicked off the new year by securing a high-profile assignment. Relative unknown Kealan O’Rourke will adapt The Houdini Box for Chernin Entertainment. Based on the book by Hugo Cabret author Brian Selznick, the story centers on a young boy who idolizes the famous magician. Upon receiving an invitation to Houdini’s house, the boy discovers that the magician has died and left the child a mysterious box. [Variety]

Seth Lochhead, the co-writer of the action thriller Hanna, has signed on to pen the movie adaptation of the popular video game, Shadow of the Colossus. Chronicle’s Josh Trank is attached to direct the fantasy epic for Sony, soon after he completes work on Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Stars to Watch for on the Red Carpet This Awards Season (VIDEO & PHOTOS)

Half the fun of awards shows is what happens beforehand.

We’re talking about the red carpet fashion show that precedes all the season’s big awards show, from the People’s Choice Awards to the Golden Globes and Oscars.

If it weren’t for the red carpet, how would Angelina Jolie’s left leg ever have launched its career as an Internet meme? Or how would we have seen Ryan Seacrest falter as Sacha Baron Cohen (aka “The Dictator”) dumped ashes on his shiny new tux — and hair.

And of course, without the pre-show red carpet extravaganza, we wouldn’t get some of the most memorable fashion moments.

While the ridiculous easily come to mind (recall: Bjork‘s swan costume at the 2001 Oscars or Lara Flynn Boyle’s ballerina costume at the 2003 Golden Globe Awards), some red carpet gowns have been responsible for launching a career or two. Nicole Kidman’s chartreuse Dior Haute Couture dress at the 1997 Oscars and Michelle Williams’ canary Vera Wang confection at the 2006 Oscars are just two examples of game-changing gowns.

Who are this year’s front contenders for the red carpet’s best-dressed lists? And which stars could launch their red carpet career this awards show season?

To prep you for the official start of this year’s Awards Show Season — which starts this week with the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday followed by the Golden Globes on Sunday — we’ve rounded up a list of the starlets to look out for on the red carpet.

A few are best-dressed regulars, while others have had one or two…or three (but who’s counting?) fashion mishaps before. (One actress even challenges the standard convention that pants are necessary in public, but that makes her all the more interesting to watch, no?)

Take a look at the stars we’ll be watching out for this red carpet season and see if you agree. 

Who are you most excited to see on the red carpet this season?

Red Carpet Season kicked off in style over the weekend, with the first of many fetes planned around the upcoming awards shows.

Naomi Watts and Kate Bosworth coordinated in anything-but-basic black, while Jamie Chung showed off her stems in a printed black-and-white mini dress.

Also doing the print thing, Fashion Star‘s Louise Roe shined in a yellow printed draped-shoulder dress and matching heels.

Modern Family’s Julie Bowen continued 2012′s sparkle trend in a glittery one-shoulder mini dress, while Nashville star Connie Britton went with another big red carpet trend from last year, donning a long, off-the-shoulder red Black Halo Eve gown and a coordinating crimson pout.

Check out all the fashion from last night’s Audi Golden Globes party.

What Your Favorite Celebs Will be Eating at The Golden Globes

It’s a feast fit for Hollywood royalty.

Celebrities will be enjoying the dinner of a lifetime at the 70th annual Golden Globe awards at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Jan. 13, Celebuzz has learned.

What’s on the menu for nominees like Naomi Watts and Leonardo DiCaprio?

The Beverly Hilton’s Exectuive Chef Suki Sugiura has prepared the menu for the Globes for nine years with the assistance of 50 chefs, 110 culinary staff, 50 bartenders and 250 servers.

In 2013, he will be serving:

APPETIZER

Grilled Artichoke with Fennel Tomato Lemon Mousse and California Pepper Honey Goat Cheese on Endive Pear Salad

ENTRÉE

Smoked Flat Iron Beef with Grilled Sweet Pickled Pepper & California Olive Oil Orange Chilean Sea Bass with Caramelized Mint Fennel

Kabocha Pumpkin, Yellow Cauliflower, Baby Bok Choy & Dill Mashed Potatoes

Executive Pastry Chef at hotel, Thomas Henzi, is creating the dessert for the third year in a row.

His ensemble will include:

DESSERT TRIO

Cappuccino Mousse Dome, Orange Sanguine & Chocolate Salted Caramel

As Celebuzz previously reported, comediennes Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are hosting the event in 2013 and have already released two hilarious promos to tease the ceremony.

This year’s event will air live, coast-to-coast, on NBC on Sunday, January 13, 2013.

The Golden Globes dinner sounds scrumptious, to us. But tell us what you would serve if you were the Executive Chef?

Golden Globes 2013: Why Were ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘The Walking Dead’ Snubbed? (INSIDE STORY)

Sharpen your swords, genre fans.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the Golden Globe nominations this morning, and two of your favorite shows — HBO’s Game of Thrones and AMC’s The Walking Dead — are nowhere to be found among the nominees.

How is that possible? Critics and fans alike consider these to be two of the best dramas on TV. Last year, ThronesPeter Dinklage even won a Best Supporting Actor trophy from the same HFPA that passed him over this year. Critics and fans tend to agree that the current seasons of both shows were even better than last year’s, so what gives?

Here are some theories:

1. The HFPA doesn’t like genre shows. It’s true, fantasy and horror and sci-fi haven’t always earned their due. Landmark shows like Lost and Battlestar Galactica were under-rewarded, so Dead and Thrones are in good company. On the other hand, both Dead and Thrones were nominated last year, as was American Horror StoryAHS: Asylum got a nod again this year (for Jessica Lange), so the snubs for Dead and Thrones have to have more than genre animus behind them.

2. Hollywood awards groups in general don’t like genre shows. A day ago, the Screen Actors Guild also snubbed Thrones and Dead. “They don’t get much love from the HFPA for the same reason that they don’t get much love from the Emmys, or why genre movies rarely get much love from the Oscars: Sci-fi or fantasy or horror are seen as childish things,” Marc Bernardin, an editor at The Hollywood Reporter and a genre-fare expert, told Celebuzz. “And, unless they’re rewarding a performance that ‘elevates’ the material, they’d just as soon keep ‘high-art’ on the pedestal. Which is, as anyone who watches these shows can attest, a short-sighted shame.” So maybe the Globe voters are just following the prevailing trend, even though…

3. The Globes prefer to be ahead of the curve. Globe voters like to be the first to recognize new TV shows and stars, and usually, they can because they’re handed out in January, just three months after the beginning of fall TV season, while the Emmys are given in September and don’t get to recognize network newcomers until a year after they debut. But cable shows, which may start at any time of year, have robbed the Globes of this advantage. The springtime premiere of Game of Thrones in 2011 allowed the Emmys to give a trophy to Dinklage before the Globes could. Now that they can’t be ahead of the curve with Thrones, maybe Globe voters have lost interest. Of course, they could still be the first to give a major prize to Dead, so why don’t they? Besides, the Globes finally nominated Breaking Bad for best drama this year, breaking their streak of years of Walt White snubs. They’re hoeplessly besotted with Homeland and Downton Abbey, like everyone else. So, the ahead-of-the-curve ship has definitely sailed.

4. The shows are too American for the foreigners in the Hollywood Foreign Press. Well, that could be true for Dead, which takes place in a postapocalyptic United States. But Thrones takes place in a fantasy realm clearly modeled after Europe and Asia, where many Globe voters come from.

5. The shows are too gory for Globe voters. Yeah, well, there’s that.

6. The Globes are more of a party than an awards ceremony. The cocktail party atmosphere, complete with free-flowing booze and a mix of TV and movie stars, makes the Globes unique among awards shows. In fact, the HFPA has been accused for decades of choosing nominees who will make for a more glittering guest list of boldface names than a credible roster of merit-worthy artists. And who would you rather invite to your party, Dead‘s Andrew Lincoln (who?) or Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm? And aside from Dinklage, there are no big names in the Thrones cast. (Insert joke here. No, don’t go there.) Now, mind you, there’s no evidence that the HFPA voters were thinking this way, but it wouldn’t be the first time Globe voters seem to have given more thought to the red carpet than to what follows.

7. There was an embarrassment of riches this year, dramatically speaking. There were a lot of great dramas this year, so many that even Mad Men failed to make the cut. So did perennial faves The Good Wife and Damages. So did Sons of Anarchy, whose long history of Emmy and Globe snubs is worse than anything Dead and Thrones fans have had to endure. Yes, watching either of these genre shows trains you to look for connections and conspiracies, but that doesn’t mean there’s malice afoot this time around.

Why do you suppose Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead were shut out of the Golden Globe nominations? Weigh in below in the comments.
