Tina Fey And Amy Poehler: Just When You Think You Know How Awesome They Are, The Bar Gets Raised | Ranking the Box Office Results of the Last 30 Best Picture Winners, Adjusted for Inflation

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    I'm of the firm belief that if you are wearing, for example, a black dress, you need some color to spark it up. And Alyssa Milano looks amazing. No one else likes it?

  • LibraryChick

    I was just trying to figure out if she was there for her past work on Who's the Boss? and Charmed or if it was for her most recent Wen commercials. I give her points for picking a cheerful color and a comfortable cut, but it's also the type of dress that makes folks speculate about pregnancy.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Clare Danes' eyes seared a hole through my soul. Then Salma Hayek's entire being patched everything up and made me a man again.

  • I'm not a fan of the fancy, glammed up look. They do weird shit with their hair, wear too much makeup, and wear ridiculous dresses. I guess I understand wanting to dress up. But as someone who doesn't care about clothing norms I just don't care about this stuff.

    Though I will say, the tux and suits in general were made for Daniel Craig. HIm and Rachel Weisz give me some hope for humanity.

  • winged chorus

    Oh Liev

  • L.O.V.E.

    Anne Hathaway looks like a grown-up Paul from the Wonder Years in drag.

  • Mrs. Julien

    How long did that take to craft? Ouch.

  • Myca Renheln

    WTF is up with the resurgence of middle hair parts?! THEY LOOK AWFUL!

  • Kati

    Sofia Vergara looks like a Latina Jessica Rabbit. And I mean that in the best and most complementary way possible. Because, bewbs!

    In unrelated snark, I am not a fan of the train attached to a bow right below the tushie area. It looks like some sort of magic trick a la Eddie Izzard - "Bunch of flowers out of my cuffs! Full length train out of my rear!"

  • MG

    Amazed you didn't include Kate Hudson's McQueen, it was my favorite of the night, followed closely by Tina's green sequinned gown. Tina has finally mastered red carpet dressing.

  • The best couples are by far Hugh Jackman and the Mrs he so obviously adores, and the Affleck-Garners. I love when the husbands go on about how much they love their wives. I'm a softy like that.

    Also, Rachel Weisz looked terrible, but not as terrible and stupid as Halle Berry did.

  • I usually hate loud prints, but I LOVED Lucy Liu's dress. And Claire Danes looked perfect. But my favorite look by far was Tina's sequined showstopper.

  • Mitchell Hundred

    I really don't understand what makes any one of these more aesthetically pleasing than any other. They all look okay to me (although some are a bit weirder than others).

    I'm a straight guy, in case you were wondering.

  • LibraryChick

    Mitchell Hundred has a point. Next time let's borrow the bit from American football where we mark the "poor plays" on the photos.

  • ScienceGeek

    I have conflicted feelings over Lena's dress. One section of my brain just loves the dress and is making strangely artistic-sounding noises about the lines and the draping (like I have any idea what those are). Another section of my brain thinks it would look absolutely incredible on somebody more hourglass-shaped. Then a third section of my brain starts feeling guilty over the body-snarking and I have to stop thinking about it.

    I also liked Lucy Liu's dress. It's absolutely nuts and there are probably a million five years olds who have just had every princess fantasy fulfilled.

    I just can't get behind Hathaway's dress, though. It's lovely, she looks lovely, but maybe it's all the gold-stuff-on-dresses and sparkles and lace over sheer that makes her look boring in comparison.

  • chanohack

    I thought the winner of the night was Hugh Jackman's lovely, lovely face. I always know, in my head, that he's an extremely handsome guy, but sometimes he still manages to catch me off guard and make me say, "Whoa, damn," aloud. Add his accent to the mix, and I mean, come on.

  • He really doesn't fight fair. Just something - gambling debts, serial affairs, performance enhancing drugs, lip-synching, cheating in math - would be helpful to the rest of us. He's not the crazy talent of a Day-Lewis, but he's good and just so purdy.

  • Maguita NYC

    Add his kindness, graciousness and obvious love for wife and kids: Not many men get this title nowadays, but Hugh Jackman is Swoon Worthy. Yes, in capital letters.

  • John W

    You think one stylist is enough for Lena? Someone needs to tell her the grunge look is out.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Yes, ball gowns are so very grunge.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Nicole Richie's dress on someone more voluptuous would have been fantastic.

    Carla Gugino's dress is both classy and modern.

    Lucy Liu's dress is out of season.

    Salma is simply playing on another field. Stunning.

    (As an aside, Anne Hathaway is starting to give me a Taylor Swift " LOOK AT ME" vibe).

  • Carrie

    What is going on with Keith Urban's shoe area? He has velociraptor legs. The same is going on with the emu, but that makes more sense.

  • Bodhi

    Hes rocking some custom lifts too. But his aren't as ridiculous as Tom's usually are

  • Smokin

    Claire Danes in that Versace? Stunning.

  • Kballs

    I used recoil from women her kind of crazy-eyes when I was single.

  • Bodhi

    She looks amazing! Having a baby one measly month ago looks great one her!

  • Slash

    Whatever, Thandie Newton looks effing hot. I don't like the shows, but the dress is awesome. It's the Golden Globes, not a coronation.

  • KatSings

    Hated Kerry Washington, Julianna Marguiles and Nicole Kidman's choices. In the case of 2 of those 3, it's because I want the sheer overlay trend to die in a fire already. It looks cheap and skanky and I hate it. It's why I hated Rachel Weisz's dress, too - if it had stopped before her knees and the extra sheer bullshit, it would have been beautiful.

    Also, I figured out that L'Wren Scott did her beautiful opening dress as well as her red carpet one, solidifying her as my choice of designer fashion if I ever make it to a red carpet.

  • poopnado

    Kalee Coocoo or whatever looks like bride of Frankenwhoever. Seriously whooaaaa on the makeup. I don't get it because doesn't she like play a hot girl on tv?

  • Bedewcrock

    I also don't understand why Big Bang Theory is popular. MYSTERIES.

  • poopnado

    Because it's so nerdy and smart donchaknow?

    I have a friend and coworker whom I love--she is very sweet and I think (but I'm not sure) that she's smart. But she is obsessed with Big Bang, and I have a hard time really respecting her because of that. Yup I'm a dick.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Jeebus, did some of these guys expect a growth spurt after they got their pants hemmed? Urban and the Emu are obviously the worst offenders (and what's with the zoot suit lapels boys?), but even the Cloon looks uncharacteristically ill-fitted in the pants department.

    Of course, Craig looks top-notch (and his wife, even moreso), but that should be a given for a man whose professional resume is so closely tied to a tuxedo. Though Waltz and Krasinski are certainly showing some skills.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Jessica Chastain's chest looked like a Carol Burnett sketch.

    Naeem Khan is my "if I ever win the lottery" designer.

    Is Daniel Craig taking one for the team by wearing sunglasses on the red carpet and thus pulling focus from whatever the hell that is Rachel Weisz is wearing that is not doing her justice? Or is he a jerk pulling focus from his wife on her big night? Or is he just wearing sunglasses? That seems unlikely. He always poses very carefully so as not to cross over into that territory that we all know happens if he smiles to widely or laughs: sex panther to homely guy.

    (Note: I am still over Craig, except that I love how firmly he keeps his arm around his lady love on the red carpet. LOVE it. Always a hand around her waist.)

    Who else is amazed that Clooney's girlfriend is on her second awards show cycle?

    It's too bad Thandie Newton's breast went supernova on the red carpet. That's got to be embarrassing. And painful.

    If Zosia Mamet had worn her hair down and put on some lipstick she would have looked fantastic.

  • poopnado

    I agree, Zosia needed better styling, but I really did love her dress. Motorcycle chic! The other girls of Girls werent' doin it for me.

    Chastain needed some eyebrow penciling and a different hairdo. Her lipstick was good. As was the expression on her face when Tina and Amy made the James Cameron joke.

  • Best comment post - natch.

    Ms Chastain is so lovely, what the F?! Really sad, cuz I'm so looking forward to seeing all the pieces fall in place with her.

    Clooney couldn't look more bored by his sex toy - I wonder what's up there. There can be no conversation between them.

    I only saw fragments, but the Craig+Weisz next to Adele table had to win for fun table.

  • I was JUST going to make the same "supernova" comment, Mrs. J. You beat me to it.

  • Bedewcrock

    With Chastain who is a gorgeous woman with possibly the worst styling team in history: What happened with her hair's middle part and the red/gray from the Aquanet?? It reminded me of Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker's Dracula:

  • Artemis

    I really liked Tina Fey's black-and-white red carpet number, but GOD DAMN did she look good during the show in that green sequined dress. That's my pick for best of the night.

    I also really liked Lucy Liu's dress, though I'm sure it would have been a disaster on anyone else. And I loved Michelle Dockery's dress, but I'm *shocked* it's not McQueen.

  • MissAmynae

    Tina in the green and Lucy were my best-dressed.

    And I would have bet the cat that it was custom McQueen. Stunning though. glad she brought the slinky, lean Lady Mary and left the fussy layered one at home.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Katherine Bigalow is throwing a real Iggy Pop vibe.

  • MissAmynae

    THAT"S who it is! oh lord that was driving me batshit crazy.

  • e jerry powell

    Ewan McGregor made me weak and then Daniel Craig slayed me.

    I'm undecided about that Badgly Mischka on Mirren. Jodie Foster was fierce, people. But she can still bite my perky ass with the whole "I'm FIFTY!" thing.

    I think Kerry Washington got a lot of crap angles with the still photos, and in the majority of those, she clearly wasn't even trying. Pigeon-toed poses and seriously annoyed faces.

  • prairiegirl

    I agree with most of your assessments but I think Helen Mirren's dress is atrocious.

    Also, very surprised you didn't include Affleck/Garner in your couples section. I thought they looked smashing.

    The Ewan always looks wonderful. I actually dreamed about him last night. Mmm...

    Lastly, I'm not sure how I missed that Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are a couple, let alone EXPECTING A BABY!!! I guess I have been living under a rock.

  • MissAmynae

    Re: Bell and Shepard-- They've been a couple for a while, and are quite simply two of the most in-love people I've ever witnessed!

  • Maguita NYC

    Hey! You leave my man alone!!!!

    That Scotsman is my wet dream since forever. Simply the way he looks straight at the camera... Makes me very-very weak everywhere.

  • Eva

    Man, Marnie's arm looks frighteningly thin in that pic of the three Girls.

  • Maguita NYC

    She was so gorgeous at the start of Girls' first season with her boobs, hips and fuller face. Slim yet voluptuous, really sexy.

    Then stupidly bowed to Hollywood's "Never-thin-enough" unmerciful motto. Just look at her sunken cheeks, it saddens me to no end.

  • selucius

    That's Allison Williams. She is one, sexy broomstick.

  • Tinkerville

    "We’re Cute, But Not as Cute as Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard."

    OH I beg to differ. Emily Blunt and Jon Krasinski will always take the cake. Always. Personally I loved Lucy Liu's dress and was glad that someone had the guts to wear a print.

  • Cute couple, but Krasinski looks like the tux is lined with hydrochloric acid, and his skin is slowly being eaten from within - metaphorically speaking. He still wins at bedtime.

  • Stevie Oh See

    Emily Blunt and Jon Krasinski, classy but not cute. I'd rather classy though, any day. Also, Lucy Liu's dress is amazing. End of.

  • DeistBrawler

    I'll agree with the Lucy Liu comment. I thought she looked amazing.

  • Natallica

    I love Lucy's dress too. It's what Marie Antoinette would wear if she traveled to the future. And I also adored Zosia Mamet's slick black dress, even though she's in desperate need of some lipstick.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Marie Antoinette would dress like Daphne Guinness.

  • theotherone

    Seconded. Liu looked lovely. But "Cute" is adjective I would never associate with lovely Emily Blunt. Goddess is a better description.

  • the dude

    come on, lucy was awesome in that thing, and emily blunt is the fucking shit, she's totally badass

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I do not like your #1 pick.

    I would love Naomi's sans the train (or a more built in train)

    I'm pretty sure Zac Posen is Lena Dunham's stylist, since they often attend things together - and I think the Girls girls all looked good, though Zosia coulda used an extra something something in the makeup/hair department.

    Salma Hayek is simply unfair.

    Amy Poehler looked so great - I love the understated sexy of her outfits. Tiny was a knockout in that greenish sequin dress, and it is very obvious her hair endorsement people make sure her locks are done to perfection for the red carpet.

    Someone needs to fix the break in we Urban's pants. Also - those are some nice heels he's wearing. But hey - he was nominated in his own right last night - he wasn't just a date.

    I loved Julianne Moore's dress, and Lucy Liu's, even if she didn't really have a reason to go that showy. I really disliked Weisz's, and your description of Baccarin's is spot on.

  • mairimba

    Cind, what's your picture source? Cause these are the most unflattering pictures of all of these celebs. (At least the first group.)

  • mairimba

    I loved Julia LD's dress. Wish she would've done somethnig about that hair. An updo perhaps. (Same for Salma Hayek's hair. Did she let her daughter comb her?)

    I'm tired of Vergara's breast. We know! They're perfect. You can put them away now.

    And Bradley Cooper looks stupid with long hair. Stick with the short look. Like Christoph Waltz. Oh goodness, that man!!

  • BiblioGlow

    There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to waste hers.

  • Mostly yahoo, and I agree.

  • KatSings

    We have...very different opinions in dresses, it would seem. I am, however, desperate to know who designed the dress Tina Fey wore for most of their show because I want it. Or a knock off of it, because lord knows I can't afford to wear what she does.

  • BWeaves

    Please write who these people are and what I should know them from. I can't figure out most of them because I just can't keep up with who's supposed to be famous these days.

    Also, What's wrong with Lady Mary's shoulders?

    And center parts look stoopid once you're older than 15.

  • Under Craig and Weisz:

    Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr
    Clooney and Stacy Keibler
    Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich
    Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
    Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
    Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
    Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber

    Christoph Waltz
    Bradley Cooper
    Robert Pattinson
    Ewan McGregor

  • Maguita NYC

    Wish you included a picture of Julianna Margulies' cute husband. They are simply beautiful together.

  • BWeaves

    THANKS! I had guessed only about 1/3 of those right.

  • Most of the actresses' names are right above their pictures.

  • BWeaves

    But, the couples are not listed and neither are the men.

  • DeistBrawler


    Google is your friend.

  • BWeaves

    How am I supposed to Google them, if their names aren't connected to their photo and I don't know who they are?

    Flashback to grammar school: How am I supposed to look it up in the dictionary if I don't know how to spell it to start with?

  • becks

    If you're in this situation again you can open google images in another tab and then drag the image to the search. It will search for related images and voila, you'll most likely get the name you're looking for! Love that little trick.

  • Kballs

    Michelle Dockery looked lovely but those hip bones are unnerving.

  • Is it really you?

  • Kballs

    Yes, lovely, 'tis I.

  • Smokin
