It’s awards season, errbody (said in J-Kwon voice), and we’re stoked to see the biggest names in the business all decked out for the Golden Globes. The third most-watched awards show brings out some of our favorite actresses, like Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, and Claire Danes (all shown at last year’s awards), and we can’t wait to see what they’re wearing. So much so, in fact, that we decided to go ahead and place some bets on who we think will be wearing who on tonight’s red carpet…
Sunday night the Golden Globes go live, offering us tons of red carpet fashions, awards and celebrity hijinks. And guess what? We’re gonna be there! Okay, not there there, but chronicling the whole damn thing from home. Get the whole scoop by following us on Twitter — Julie is @havethehabit and Amelia is @xoamelia. Starting on Sunday, January 13 at 6 p.m., we’ll be there with all the gossip, analysis and hilarity. Obviously you need someone to talk to about what Anne Hathaway’s wearing, right? (And if you haven’t already, follow @thefrisky for more fun!) Oh, and don’t forget to bring along The Frisky’s Golden Globes Drinking Game so you can get plastered with us!
Awards shows are a dime a dozen, but we like the Golden Globes because all the nominees are drinking and eating while the show goes on, and are generally sloshed by the time they get on stage. That, plus Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are hosting this year’s awards, which means it’s going to be extra funny. Tina and Amy know how pat and stale these things can be, and they’ve created their own drinking game. We are a tad partial to ours, only because it’s a bit more specific — more like a scavenger hunt than a drinking game. Or like a scavenger hunt with your TV. And booze. (The Golden Globes air Sunday January 13 at 8ET/5PT on NBC. )
Beautiful goddess/actress Connie Britton is absolutely killing it in this slinky red gown, and causing me to experience a tidal wave of conflicting and confusing feelings, such as, “Can I please make out with you?” and “After we make out, will you sit me down and give me motherly advice?” and “Could I just have one small lock of your hair to wear in a vial around my neck for the rest of my life?” Uuuungghh I just love her so much it hurts!

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler + Ballgowns and Chuck Taylors = Perfection.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey still haven’t gotten back to us about our suggestion that they co-host our bad dates and therapy sessions. They were probably just busy filming this promo for the 2013 Golden Globes, which they are co-hosting on Sunday, January 13. And here are the 2013 Golden Globe nominations in case you want to join the ranks of people on the Internet who are very angry about who got snubbed this year. [No "Game of Thrones" or "The Walking Dead"?! And who the hell even saw "Salmon Fishing in Yemen"?! I mean come on. -- Editor]
Hallelujah praise the lord! Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been tapped to co-host the Golden Globes! We were so excited to hear this news that we couldn’t help but ponder all the other things we’d love to have them cohost, from reality shows to awkward family gatherings. Read on to check out our Tina/Amy hosting wishlist, and please add your own in the comments… Keep reading »
Like bold red lipstick, cat-eye liner is one makeup trick that is less of a trend and more of a lifestyle. It’s always en vogue, and those who embrace it do so with wild abandon. It’s no coincidence that nearly all of my style icons, the women past and present that I consistently look to for guidance (or whatever, I’m shallow), have been known to boast the eternally sexy black flick. There was no drought of eye-catching makeup looks at this year’s Golden Globes, some good, others shameful, but there’s only one that was so on-point that I said to myself, Never again will I wear my cat-eye liner is a manner that is not precisely this one.
That show-stopping pair of eyes belonged to Angelina Jolie, who has long been my eye makeup and otherwise idole supreme (see also: deity, muse, most beautiful praying mantis-woman to ever walk the earth). Never — never— before, in all my days, have I bore witness to such exquisitely blended, gorgeously defined black liner. Imagine my dismay when, come the day after the awards, Angelina’s makeup artist had yet to come forward with the tools and technique used to acquire this most enviable look. Luckily, I have the all-abiding patience and focus of a savant, which I put to good use by settling myself in front of the mirror in a series of trial and error. Forty-five minutes, three brushes, and one handful of spilled kohl later, and what do I have to show for it? Only the most gorgeous eyeliner ever, of course, and the goodwill to pass it on.
