The show wasn't as exciting as I had hoped but I have to admit, when you take a 2 hour break in the middle to watch Jack Bauer do his thing with the terrorists, it makes going back to watching the Globes a major bore.
The pre-show on E! was much better than years past with Kathy and Star. Isaac was a little off and the underwear question got old, but it was fun to watch him grab Scarlett's boobs. She handled it pretty well.
As for the red carpet, there were no major disasters but some of the usual red carpet standouts were a little disappointing this year. These are my OK dressed list of celebs. I usually love Gwyneth but I'm not into this earthy look on her. I still give her props since she is pregnant and probably not into dressing up. Natalie Portman looked cute but sort of boring. I think she was wearing classic Chanel, but I hated the top of the dress. I was not into Charlize's Dior get-up at all. A major disappointment for me was Heidi Klum. She is one of my favorites but her dress - not so much. Wtf is that neckline? I love that Heath and Michelle can't keep their hands of each other, but I did not love her purple frilly dress. She has looked so amazing at all the recent premieres so I guess I was expecting more.
My favorites included Reese and her wonderful hot hubby. Both looked perfect in every way and watching them during the show just made me love this couple even more. Mandy Moore looked really cute but could have done more with the hair - luckily she has such a winning smile so it works. Also loved the red this year. Eva and Scarlett looked fabulous in their red dresses. I am also a fan of Scarlett's hair down - I feel like she never wears it like that for big events. Surprisingly Teri Hatcher looked great. I usually bash her but I must say I thought her dress was one of the most unusual and the cut was unreal. I loved Evangeline Lilly green dress - it matched her eyes!
I was really excited to see Reese, Joaquin, and George win. I had hoped Brokeback Mountain would have taken home more awards, but 4 ain't to shabby including Best Film and Best Director. I was also super psyched to see the fabulous Mary-Louis Parker beat all those Desperate Housewives. Weeds is such a funny show - people should order Showtime just to see what they are missing. I can't wait for it to return. Lost got a nice win for the gang but I have been down on the show recently so hopefully it will get back to where it was last year. Lastly, Kiefer and Heath were robbed.
