Golden Globes 2010
I admit it. I love award shows. But I especially love the majors, like Sunday night's 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. I love the glamour of the fashions – the gorgeous gowns, the sparking jewelry and the beautiful hair. Plus, there’s always a few fashion faux pas.
This particular ceremony showed more cleavage than any show in ages! Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but Mariah Carey and Joan from Mad Med looked ready to spill out at any second.

The timing of The Globes was very welcome and returned the smile to my face, after watching a horrible football playoff game. The favored San Diego Chargers lost to the New York Jets in a crushing defeat. That was difficult to watch and even harder to accept that, yet again, we lost in the first round. UGH!

The ceremonies were held in Los Angeles, where water fell from the sky. Umbrellas helped to keep the stars from getting soggy, but I noticed a few hairdo’s fell flat as the night wore on.
My favorite part is the elegant, classic ladies, like Meryl Streep, Sophia Loren, Helen Mirren and Kate Winslet. Each of them looked lovely and practically regal.

Meryl was a double nominee and won for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, for Julie and Julia. I really enjoyed that movie and her performance in it. You can’t go wrong in black.
Sandra Bullock was also a double nominee and won for Best Actress in a Drama for Blind Side. I loved Sandy’s diaphanous, rich purple gown.
Mo’Nique was the first winner of the evening, with a Best Supporting Actress award for Precious. She gave a teary eyed acceptance speech.
It was no big surprise when Avatar won for Best Picture for a Drama, while James Cameron picked up the Best Director prize. The shocker was The Hangover winning for Best Picture for a Comedy or Musical.

Jeff Bridges picked up a statue for Best Actor in a Drama for Crazy Heart; while Robert Downey Jr. won Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for Sherlock Holmes.
The cool thing about The Golden Globe Awards is combining television with movies into one show. The Best TV Shows were deemed to be: Mad Men (for the third time) and the brand new Glee. Gray Gardens won for Best Movie made for TV.

Best Actress nods went to Toni Collette for United States of Tara and to Julianna Marguilies for The Good Wife. Chloe Sevigny won Big Love and Drew Barrymore for Gray Gardens.

Best Actors winners in TV were Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock, Michael C. Hall for Dexter and John Lithgow for Dexter. I’m so happy Dexter himself finally won on his third nomination. I was making fun of his dorky hat; only to find out he’s battling cancer and wore it to cover the effects of chemo. Yes, I’m an idiot. We have to wait until September for the next season of Dexter. John Lithgow was outstanding as the special guest star in this past season. He was particularly scary in his role and way too believable.
Martin Scorsese received the Cecil B. DeMille Award, presented by his pals Leonardo DeCaprio and Robert Dinero.
And last but not least, the funny and dapper host of the show, Ricky Gervaise.
Here are a few more photo's from the show.
