69th annual golden globe awards (2012) wrap up

Ricky Gervais is the host of the ceremony for the third year in a row

“So, where was I?”

Ricky Gervais was invited back for the third year in a row to host the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards, chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. After creating a bucket load of controversy last year, Ricky toned it down this time around, while still being hilarious.

My favourite part from the opening monologue was when he said that the Golden Globes are to the Oscars like Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton, you can watch the full opening monologue here: 

The Artist seemed to be the clear front runner of the night, though they only won 3 of the 6 awards they were nominated for. Along with the full list of winners, I have added my predictions of who I thought would win,  not necessarily who I wanted to win. I was about 68% right, predicting 17 of the 25 wins! I must be magic!

Best Dressed (my favourites from the night)

Claire Danes in her black and white, open back, J. Mendel creation with Bulgari jewels.

Shailene Woodley in her gorgeous shimmering embroidered illusion column dress by Marchesa and Tabitha Simmons shoes.

Jessica Alba in her glittering Gucci design, which daughter Honor said made her look like a mermaid.

Angelina Jolie looked stunning in her white and red Atelier Versace gown, accessorised with her lips and clutch, on the arm of Brad Pitt.

Worst Dressed

Amanda Peet looked like she was wearing a horrible shower curtain, which was shocking as I usually expect better from Marc Jacobs.

Piper Perabo just looked wrong. I don't know exactly what it is, but I did not like her look.

    Piper Perabo looks like she’s had alot of work done on her face in that photo. Loved Ange’s dress. Stunning!

      She does, doesn’t she! I just did not like that dress or the hair or anything! Ange looked great and even though I’m team Jen, it’s so incredibly sweet the way Ange looks at Brad and vice versa.
