From Bill Murray’s top hat to Jennifer Lopez’s seductive deep-v sparkly jumpsuit (and a visit from a North Korean), this red carpet saw it all. Celebrities from around the world arrived in Los Angeles for the 72nd Golden Globes. The carpet was bumping with well-known celebrities (Channing Tatum anyone?) dressed in their hottest designer gowns and tuxes.
Allison Janney, Michael Keaton, Jack Black and Kate Hudson were just a few of the celebs spotted gallivanting around the red carpet on January 11th. Thanks to Matt Lauer, Carson Daly and Nathalie Emmanuel, Golden Globe fanatics got a first hand account of stardom from many coveted actors and actresses. Jennifer Aniston wowed watchers with her sparkly black halter dress, and Taylor Schilling discussed wearing a color other than orange (since her character in Orange is The New Black is constantly donning that heinous jumpsuit). Her bright red Ralph Lauren dress made quite the statement.
Kate Hudson, Channing Tatum, Jack Black, Matt Bomber (who looks like the hottest Ken doll you’ve ever seen), Reese Witherspoon, Oprah and Amy Adams were also just a few of the talented actresses and actors spotted on the red carpet.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (hosting for their third and final time) started off the evening with the inevitable crack about The Interview—yes, North Korea was mentioned. Joanna Froggatt (Downtown Abbey Season 4), Billy Bob Thornton from Fargo (Best Actor in a mini or TV series) and Gina Rodriguez (who made quite a breathy speech) were some of the first stars to take home a Golden Globe.
The moment of truth came when Richard Linklater (Boyhood) beat out David Fincher (Gone Girl) for best director. Ruth Wilson from The Affair shockingly beat Robin Wright from House of Cards, who plays a ball-buster powerhouse woman. Finally, Michael Keeton took best actor for his role in Birdman, and The Grand Budapest Hotel beat out Into The Woods, St. Vincent, and Pride for best motion picture. And last but not least, the best drama motion picture went to Boyhood (surprise, surprise, but not really).
So to all those celebs who took home a globe, congrats. And to all those who lost, George Clooney dutifully reminds all, the mere fact that you’re at the Golden Globes means you’re a winner. Finally, to all the average Joes out there who viewed the ceremony from your couch, thanks for watching; the 72nd Golden Globes was one to remember (mostly because Matt Bomber graced the stage with his amazingly hot presence).
