The Good, The Bad & The Meh At The 2011 Golden Globe Awards

golden globes 2011 g1 jpg
I think we can all agree on something — Ricky Gervais needs to host every award show ever going forward starting now. His jokes were so rude and unafraid and hilarious, they actually made watching a room full of people dying to celebrate themselves — and having to put up with being made fun of — enjoyable. For a second there I thought the Scientologists had called in a favor and gotten Gervais removed from the auditorium — luckily, he seems to have survived the night.

Anyway, let’s get on to the second best part of the evening — the clothes! The stars turned out in a variety of different trends — deep, emerald green gowns (Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Catherine Zeta-Jones), shower curtain-inspired bridal wear (Jennifer Lopez, Michelle Williams, Jennifer Love Hewitt), flamin’ hot Cheeto red (January Jones, Christina Hendricks, Edie Falco), and sorbet pinks and peaches (Claire Danes, Lea Michele, Emma Stone). There were some daring knockouts and a few total flops — who were your picks for Good, Bad, and Meh?

For The Week Of January 17-23, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Stress is going to be piling up and driving out the nymphomaniac in you, as the only way to alleviate yourself of the pressure is to let it out in an obvious way. The good news is the universe will be on your side, making this one orgasmic week to take advantage of, as brilliant ideas will come when your back is up against a wall (or bed).

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Forget the good girl routine, because you know once the doors close the freak in you can work it out in ways no one would ever suspect. This week, time to pull those shades down tighter, because your animal instincts will be sharper than ever and it’s time to take your flirtations to the next level — and yes, you will deserve everything coming to you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Remember, it’s always darkest before the dawn. So, don’t get too comfy with major decisions you’ve made as of late, as there are still a few hurdles that can aggravate. Seems the next round of info you learn may strike at you emotionally and logic won’t be readily available to help quell the anxiety. No matter, nothing is ever perfect, but know ultimately the ball is still in your court.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

No matter how things are playing out, if you want it to work in your favor, start playing the friendship card. Yes, hard to hear for a horny devil such as yourself, but this week, showing off your intellect will be your sex magnet. However, this isn’t the time when your iron will be at its hottest, it’s more about heating things up — so bide your time, as this week it’s about the tease.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Why move a muscle, when you can get someone else to do it? Yes, work your power of persuasion now, as you are best at indulging in luxuries this week. Realize you’ve put in the hard work and now is time to reap the rewards. Besides all that, love is nothing unless you know someone truly knows how to give; this week, it’s time to test out who’s in and who’s out.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Getting pushy is going to be a little necessary to move your agenda along. It seems the scattered energy in the air will be a tad bit frustrating, but since you have vision, it won’t be hard to grab the attention of whomever you want. However, pace yourself. Rome wasn’t built in a day and although you can make great strides, the destination is still a bit of a ways away.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Your brain may start to go haywire, as ideas that pop into your head may make you wonder if you’re going nuts. You aren’t; you just need to clean out space in your mind to head clearly into the future. Yes, odd things and ideas will be filling your mind, but considering it’s a lifetime load, all you can do is laugh and move it on.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Bossy friends are going to be giving you all sorts of suggestions that may sound condescending or just crazy. Sure, there may be some baggage attached to some offers, but who cares? If it is going to get you from point A to point B, then just do it. Now is not the time to stall and try to consider what to do next. Just keep up the momentum, taking each opportunity and chalking it all up as an adventure.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Eloquence will matter now; so don’t stop to edit yourself. Just say how you feel, as it will come out poetically and effectively. Of course, if this means glossing over some truths for the greater good, do it. Yes, it may hurt initially, but in the long run, you will win out. As it stands now, if you bend these small rules, then the finish line will be in sight.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The world is about to become a smaller place. This might mean literally meeting someone from another culture that will seriously float your boat or getting an opportunity to fly away, passport in hand, or even just having an epiphany that awakens a deep truth in you that will be changing up your philosophies towards life. Whatever it may be, amazing surprises are in store!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Let your baby say what they must, as they need to flex their power by way of strong words now. No, you won’t agree with it all, but some will hit close to home. When it does, there will be guilt — so prepare to work your magic to eradicate those negative emotions. At the very least, you can look forward to the positive end result of getting on the same page and in just the perfect position.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Your “me” needs to turn into a “we” if you want things in your love life to move along as they have. Yes, your selfish ways will be under the gun now and you can no longer assume that it’s your way or the highway. You know it, this is the time when your love minion will be striking back, showing some of his heat and it might just shock you how hot it’ll make you.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: “I Have A Dream”

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, readers! Hopefully you have the day off to (sleep in and) do some sort of public service, but regardless, here is the full version of MLK’s legendary “I Have A Dream” speech. Keep reading »

The Good, The Meh & The WTF At The 2011 Critics Choice Awards

Hollywood spent the weekend celebrating themselves — first up, the Critics Choice Awards! There were some amazing standouts amongst the women walking the red carpet, plus a handful of WTFs and a couple of ladies just phoning it in. Only a few completely knocked my socks off, but hopefully that’s because everyone else was saving the glam for the Golden Globes? (Find out when we post that slideshow later this morning…) Who was your best and worst dressed?

An Open Letter To Tom Ford

Oh, Tom Ford, where will you draw the line? As a fashion editor and writer, I’ve been behind you since the days of Gucci, YSL and certainly your namesake collections. And as a designer-turned-director, you have an amazing talent for understanding what we want to see, what the next big thing is and, ultimately, what will titillate us.

But it is your judgment as a guest editor that leaves us scratching our heads. Read more Keep reading »
