HBO Golden Globes Party

Posted on January 17, 2012

Darlings, it was the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards HBO Afterparty and everyone was forced to stand in front of an ugly laundry detergent logo and look sober! But let’s judge them anyway.

Alexander Skarsgard

Well done on the fit, but your tie’s askew and we can tell you’re not wearing an undershirt.


Alice Eve

The dress is only so-so, but the look as a whole is pretty put together. We would have asked for at least one pop of color.


Alison Pill

Cute dress, boring shoes. Also, pay to have your hair done when you know you’re getting your picture taken.


Anne Heche in Collette Dinnigan

Dull as dishwater – and about the same color.


Ashley Jones

The gold shoes are kind of an unusual choice but we’re so damn tired of black lace dresses.


Carrie Preston

Great color on her. It’s only an okay look but she, bless her heart, has the worst time of it on the red carpet, so this is a big improvement.


Emilia Clarke

At least it’s kind of an interesting black lace dress, but man, are those some geriatric “bus trip to the casinos” shoes she’s sporting.


Jane Fonda in Jack Guisso

It’s probably all pulleys and electrical tape underneath, but you gotta give the lady credit for pulling it together and looking spectacular.

Joe Manganiello



John Stamos

Suit’s a bit shiny and of course his pose is terrible, but he looks adorable in those frames.


Julia Ormond in Tadashi Shoji

Oh, GIRL. A dress like this needs styling and you, sadly, seem to have skipped that part.


Kate Walsh

Kind of a generic 2008 dress, wouldn’t you say?


Lena Headey

A bit too “little bride on the prairie.”


Stephen Amell


Sorry. Sometimes we just snap.


Thomas Jane



Wendi McLendon-Covey

Sweetie, nipples are sources of fun and nutrition. They’re not hooks upon which you hang a dress.

    This was hilarious because I LITERALLY was just about to leave a whiny post on the men’s red carpet recap about how when I get men’s red carpet, I just, I need some ASkars. it just needs to happen. But then this popped up and I was grotesquely happy.

      Speaking of “popped up”, Mr. Jane really should be sporting some underwear.

        You know when you look in the mirror as you’re getting ready to walk out the door and you realize you should remove one thing. He chose wrong.

  • Genevieve Dieudonne

    kate walsh’s dress looks like that Kate Hudson’s golden globes dress from a couple of years ago.

  • It’s embarrassing how an egg drops every time I see Alexander Skarsgaard. Usually one of my own eggs, so we’re cool.

      Me too. I probably sat here for a good three minutes just staring at that first picture. AND THEN I scrolled down to see a pic of John Stamos! Thank you, TLo. Thank you eversomuch.

  • What if Alexander Skarsgard is not wearing an undershirt? As far as I’m concerned, he should always appear in public with nothing more than a Speedo. I wouldn’t mind.

    • EXACTLY.

    • Anonymous

      Speedo? Gurl, please. His birthday suit is good enough for HBO, so it’s good enough for us too.

      • I was going to say that, but I don’t want him to go to prison. After all, the policemen are, mostly, straight men.

        I think mermaid hair needs to not be deployed with a Wilma at all.  Too much asymmetry all at once!

    I’ve very nearly bought the dress Allison Pill (who?) is wearing several times from Anthropologie. I love it so so much. It’s probably still on the racks if you want one of your very own.

      Allison Pill was in “Midnight in Paris” (among other things, such as “Milk”).  I think that dress is adorable.

    Re: Alexander Skarsgard–I’ll take 12, please.  I saw a magazine interview with him once where they asked about losing his virginity and he said something like “oh that would have been 2007.  Lasted about 30 seconds.”  So he’s got a sense of humor about himself too.  (Or premature ejaculation and an overabundance of candor.  One or the other.)

    What is going on with Lena Headey’s legs?

    • Anonymous

      She’s doing the crossed leg pose which is usually used when wearing an insanely short skirt.  It helps project an image of modesty, but with a calf length dress, it just makes it look like somebody broke her legs.

      • Anonymous

        Helps project an image of modesty?  To me, it projects an image of a loss of bladder control.

        • Anonymous

          Bahahaha, or that.  I guess helps project an image of modesty was the wrong choice of words.  Maybe…helps prevent your underwear from showing up on STAR’s front page?

            There you go! 🙂

            Whatever it’s meant to project, I would like it to go away.  Please.  Now.

  • greathill

    best GG post yet.  I give Alison Pill a pass; she is such an awesome actress and probably never considered using a stylist.  what were some of these people thinking?!

    Jane Fonda wins hands down.  She looks great and this is one black dress I actually love.

    • Anonymous

      When she came out on stage Sunday night, I thought she looked FIERCE.  She’s working her 70+ reason.

    • There are definitely no electrical tapes or pulleys holding Jane Fonda together. I guess T and Lo have not seen her latest workout video. The woman’s body is at least as fab as it was 30 years ago. However, that being said, that shot of her from the rear while she was on stage revealed a 74-year- old back. The upper chest and back never lie.

  • I didn’t care that much for Alice’s ensemble, until I reached the end of the list and realized, in comparison, she did pretty well.

  • Anonymous

    Oh so right about the logo! My first thought as the page opened was that it looked like they were at an event sponsored by Tide. My condolences to the actors getting their picture snapped. 

  • Anonymous

    So Kate Walsh is wearing basically a modified version of Kate Hudson’s Marchesa that was worn to the Globes about two years ago, right?

    • Thank you! I was waiting for someone to point that out. Man that dress looked awful on Kate, she looked drunk for some reason.

  • Anonymous

    OK, I am now officially tired of celebrities.  Especially female celebrities posing with those stupidly crossed legs:  “Take the picture! GOTTA PEE!”

    And Jane Fonda has managed to get her plastic surgeon(s) to make her look like Nancy Reagan.  How’s THAT for karma?

    “Skank.”  *Snort!*

    If you stare at Lena Headey’s feet long enough, it looks like her legs are on backwards.

    That dress of Wendi McLendon-Covey is hanging on for dear life cuz it’s one deep breath away from a wardrobe malfunction.  Good grief….I just can’t look away….it’s like….ANY minute now….!!!

  • What the is Thomas Jane wearing on his head?  Why would he do such a thing?  I am confused…

    Also, as a matter of course, a suit should not be shiny.  There are very few men who can pull it off.  If you don’t know you are one, then you are not.

    Still love John Stamos.  He seems like such a decent and interesting guy.

  • MilaXX

    There is so much awful lace on this RC, I am willing to give Alice Eve a pass for her lack of color.

  • OMG is Lena Headey wearing shoulder pads? Under a white sheer lace dress?? Tell me I am just seeing things…

    • I have a hard time with Lena Headey.  I keep confusing her with Lara Flynn Boyle.  They both have the unfortunate lip thing going on.

    • Anonymous

      What the crap, I think you’re right!

    • Yes, those are shoulder pads under that sheer dress.  I wore almost that exact dress in 1988 when I got married (the first time).  Awful then and now.

  • Diego!

    Thomas Jane is hangin’ something there. Quoting Starbooty: ‘Between him down there’ OMFG! o_O

    Am I the only one who is entirely skeeved by Joe Manganiello? I’ve never seen anything he’s been in, so perhaps that’s part of the problem. But I think he looks utterly creepy in every photo I see of him.

  • Anonymous

    Did Joe Manganiello ride there on a horse? And be careful Stamos, it’s a fine line between adorable and duche

  • Too many double-up reviews for people who were photographed on the main red carpet in the same outfits, but that’s a nitpick.  I guess Heche was obliged to show up since the now-cancelled show had a nomination, but she could have put a bit more effort into it.  I don’t quite care for that particular shape of pant on Joe Manganiello, but then, I tend to prefer him without pants on at all.  For as much as I’d like to molest Thomas Jane, he is seeming more and more like some inexplicable creature from another galaxy.  Not enough to be off-putting, but just enough to be truly confusing.

    • “Too many double-up reviews for people who were photographed on
      the main red carpet in the same outfits, but that’s a nitpick.”

      Too many? Not one of the people in this post appeared or were reviewed in our Golden Globes posts.

      • Apologies, my bad.  I have read TOO MANY red carpet recaps away from here, particularly of Jane Fonda, in the last two days.

    LOL on the nipples as source of fun and nutrition.  I’ll take Alex without an undershirt — no problem.  That HBO logo is truly atrocious!

  • Anonymous

    Where did the A-listers go? This is kind of a pitiful group.

  • While TLo were tweeting about the GG red carpet (and very nearly at the end) John Stamos tweeted “guess it’s time to think about an outfit — ideas?”  He just pulled that out of the closet and walked out the door.  I think he did a pretty good job.

    At least Thomas Jane is wearing real shoes.  He’s usually either barefoot or wearing those five toe running shoes.

    Lindsay Lohan (on the next story)  needs to change her haircolor.  The pale blonde color makes her look SO OLD, like an old bar fly from a distance. Then, she is surprisingly young in the face from close up. Her dressing and hair color would be appropriate for someone in the case of the movie “Casino”, you know, a woman who is trying to hold onto the ’40ish’ look, and just hopes no one looks at her up close. The problem here is that Lindsay is actually quite young. Her whole look is for a middle age kept woman.   She needs to go back to the strawberry blonde she had briefly.  It was great with her skin color and was very youthful.  What a waste! (I commented here, because there is no place to enter comments on the Lohan story.  Sorry.)

    The 75 year old wins in a landslide. She looked amazing in that dress when she walked out on stage at the awards. Wowie!

    Jane Fonda needs to lay-off the plastic surgery.  I accept that she wants to look younger, but what’s wrong with being 74 and looking like a great 54 year-old actress?  Why does she have to go for delighted 29 year-old starlet? 

    I know:  Jane doesn’t do anything by half-measure.

  • I never pretended to know anything about fashion, I’m just here for the sense of humor, but is it so wrong that I’m digging the oil slick suits? Never in a million years I’d wear one, and of course I’m partial to the guys sporting them, but at least they bring a ‘something else’ to men’s fashion.
