2014 SAG Awards Red Carpet Rundown – The Boys

Posted on January 21, 2014

Drive-by bitchery for the boys, darlings. It’s not easy talking about a succession of mostly tuxes and making it entertaining, so we’re gonna keep it quick and quippy.

 

 

Bradley Cooper in Gucci

 Good enough.

 

 

Aaron Paul in Burberry

 Having a love-hate relationship with the shoes.

 

 

 

Benedict Cumberbatch

Hated the Sherlock premiere.

Oh, wait. That’s not an assessment of his clothes. That’s us trolling.

(But we did hate it)

 

 

Clark Gregg

Those are not your glasses, Clark Gregg. Talk about hiding your light under a bushel. And the thing of it is, he’s got the perfect face for frames. Just not these frames.

 

 

Jared Leto in Dior Homme

 Oh, whatever.

 

 

Mario Lopez

 Too tight pants.

 

 

 

Brian Geraghty

He’s cute but the jacket’s weird.

 

 

 

Jason Bateman in Dolce&Gabbana

 Does he have another facial expression?

 

 

 

Cuba Gooding Jr.

We like plaids and we like tuxes, but we’re not sure we can get behind plaid tuxes.

 

 

 

Damian Lewis

Douchepose.

 

 

 

James Marsden in Valentino

Midnight blue tuxes are officially a red carpet trend. We like.

 

 

 

Justin Mikita and Jesse Tyler Ferguson in Ted Baker

 Skating right up to the “precious” line.

 

 

 

Josh Holloway

 Get your pants hemmed, dimples.

 

 

 

Alfie Allen in Spencer Hart

 Why do we suspect he’s spent the last year with his hands over his crotch like that?

 

 

 

Kit Harington in Z Zegna

Good enough, Jon Snow.

 

 

 

Matt Damon in Dolce&Gabbana

 We dig the grey tux but the transition lenses have GOT to go.

 

 

 

Michael K. Williams

On the one hand, this is pretty awesome for being colorful and different. On the other hand, he looks like he’s wearing a pajama top and bedroom slippers.

 

 

 

Peter Dinklage

 Clearly does not want to pose.

 

 

 

Kevin Spacey

 Classic.

    • Scimommy

      “Hated the Sherlock premiere.”

      Aww. Do you want to talk about it? The first time I saw it (when it aired in the UK) was a bit discombobulating but it really grew on me with subsequent viewings. The plot gets a bit murky, but many scenes are pure gold and the acting is phenomenal.

      • Jessica Freeman

        I thought it was pretty funny as well. That bit with John’s mustache was hilarious. “Are you really going to keep that?”….

        • Scimommy

          The entire scene in the restaurant is to die. “Well, surprise me.” “I am certainly endeavoring to!”

          • Shawn EH

            I thought the episode was flashy and showy, but Sherlock’s Asperger’s has shaded into just being a mean prankster.

            • JP

              The moustache bits were great, as were Mrs. Hudson and Mary totally shipping Johnlock, but the rest, particularly that bit on the train? I felt like Holmes was exuding shades of House, more arsehole than genius.

            • Shawn EH

              It’s always schoolboy rivalries for the educated Brits, isn’t it?

            • ConnieBV

              I took it that he had regressed while away. I enjoyed the premiere.

            • JP

              Ooh, that’s an interesting way to think of it. And without John at his beck and call 24/7, he might not get better…

            • ConnieBV

              Yep, if you think about it, John was always there to curb his asshattery, and with John away and only Mycroft, that had to get dialed up to 13. If you notice in the scene he has with Mycroft, Sherlock is all of a sudden the empathic one? I mean, WTF. That scene, btw was GENIUS.

            • JP

              I definitely enjoyed the “deduction off.” Especially when Sherlock got to say “how would you know?” to Mycroft, almost as revenge for Mycroft’s similar remark to Sherlock about sex in “Belgravia.” Nice symmetry.

        • gabbilevy

          “Mary likes it.”

          “Mmm… no, she doesn’t.”

          • Scimommy

            “This is charming, I’ve really missed THIS!”

            (Do I know that scene by heart? Why yes. Yes, I do.)

            • Jessica Freeman

              Busted out laughing.

            • ConnieBV

              I enjoyed the progressive downgrade in the both the violence and the quality of the eatery. Pretty soon he would have just kicked him in the nards by a food cart.

            • MemHey

              Not attempting to suppress the chortle. Yes, a chortle – a snort without a squeak but joyful nonetheless!

        • WendyD

          “I don’t shave for Sherlock Holmes.”

          Well I would! ;)

          • Scimommy

            As I said to someone on twitter Sunday night, he’d notice you shaved but he wouldn’t appreciate it. ;)

          • Jessica Freeman

            Among the many things I would do for Sherlock. Most of which would be inappropriate to post.

          • JP

            That’s also already on a T-shirt on Redbubble.

            • WendyD

              The BBC is selling them officially as well.

          • AvaLehra

            I would love to shave Sherlock.

      • Lori

        I agree that some of the scenes were terrific, but I don’t think they added up to much. That was a major disappointment.

        • Scimommy

          I’ve been thinking that if one watches Sherlock largely for the plot (mysteries, clues, who-done-its, how-done-its, etc.), this episode (and perhaps this entire season) might be disappointing. But for someone who watches largely for the characters *raises hand*, it’s been a delight.

          • Sarah

            Well said, totally agree. The interactions between Sherlock & Mycroft, Sherlock & John – ok, basically Sherlock and everyone else – are most enjoyable. There is some great chemistry between the actors on the show.

          • Imasewsure

            I wouldn’t mind the focus on the characters alone if this were a regular series with several episodes but with only three, this seemed a little self-indulgent and “actor-y” which was my main problem with it. I’d rather have the characters shine through the plot rather than a plot that doesn’t really exist so that we can see how cute and fun the characters are… still better than just about anything else on TV so I was happy to have it back, even if I was a little disappointed over all… you can see how much they love doing it and that is something nice too

            • Sarah

              I’ve read this is the weakest of the season’s three episodes, so perhaps we will all (ahem, TLo, ahem) be smitten once again when it’s over.

          • Lori

            I do watch mostly for the characters, but I still don’t think that making jokes about the fact that your plot doesn’t hold together makes it OK that your plot doesn’t hold together. If they can’t make the plot work I’d be fine with just watching the characters hang out, but if they’re going to put up a plot it needs to work on a basic level.

      • Erica

        We are most of the way through…just too tired to finish last night. I like it fine, but my position is that even a middling Sherlock is head and shoulders over most other things. I really liked the scene with Mycroft as the smart brother.

        • Tatiana Luján

          I always love the scenes with Mycroft, he’s my favorite bit of the show.

      • nannypoo

        I loved it. I had to watch it twice to understand some of the dialog and it was even better the second time. I think it was about a half hour too long, filled with implausible rooftop speculation and the resolution of Watson’s feelings, but the restaurant scenes were classic. I love Watson’s fiance.

        • Tracy_Flick

          I loved it too. Yes, it was over-the-top and implausible, but it’s Sherlock Holmes, for heaven’s sake! I thought all of the nods to online speculation were hilarious.

        • Eclectic Mayhem

          The actress – Amanda Abbington – is Freeman’s partner in real life. She’s great.

      • misstressofsylar

        I hated it too on first viewing. But it made sense after I watched all 3 episodes in one sitting. And oh, “Short version, not dead” really got me. And “I do not shave for Sherlock Holmes.”

      • DesertDweller79

        I can’t hate it because I love the characters and the actors a lot. And it was a nice character episode. But, it is definitely the weakest of the 3 episodes this season. I felt it was self-indulgent. Though, I did quite enjoy the Sherlock/Mycroft scenes.

      • MarieLD

        It makes me sad that you guys didn’t like it. I didn’t love it, but it felt so good to have it back. And Sherlock is so much better than most shows. I kept thinking that it is like the mysteries I prefer to read — by Ian Rankin, others — that aren’t so much cosy whodunits but character-driven stories. And I can’t help but wonder what they do to BC’s face … I guess it’s the hair. His face looks fuller and handsomer when he’s a brunette. I’d definitely be a Cumberb*tch if I hadn’t fallen in love with Freeman all those years ago in “Love, Actually.”

        • Scimommy

          I don’t think it’s anything “they do” to BC’s face, it’s that he is a fantastic actor who becomes a different – more intense, sexier – persona as SH. Even his voice as SH is different – he deepens it. If you look at his photos on set when he is out of character, he basically looks like regular BC in a wig.

          • MarieLD

            even better.

      • St. Ace

        It was too much fan service and not enough plot/content, IMO.

      • MemHey

        I love Sherlock. Love it. Loved how series 1-2 had many nods to Conan Doyle. They inspired me to read the books, actually. This time, it seems that the writers have read more fanfic as their source material. Much as I appreciate the epic Molly kiss, much as I appreciate Anderson’s reboot, much as I appreciate the whole Holmes family, in this episode I saw many of the same weaknesses the Uncles have pointed out in Dr. Who – perhaps an example of what happens when Moffat writes with fans in mind, and not purely out of his own imagination.

        • AvaLehra

          Moffat! (I am totally yelling that a la “Khaaaaaaaaaan!!”)

        • WendyD

          Except Moffat didn’t write this episode. Gatis did.

      • Kimmu

        Really was not a fan of Sherlock gaslighting John the entire episode and them turning his real grief into the punchline of a joke. I just don’t buy the friendship anymore because after last season and now this, it’s moved straight into abuse territory.

    • ballerinawithagun

      The oldest man wins, Kevin Spacey, you look amazing!
      Again, no Ewan? Is he just refusing to play the game any more, or has that sad face been for a reason?

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        I think he’s filming with Johnnie Depp right now – my cousin (okay, hang on – my mum’s counsin’s son… so what 2nd cousin? *shrug*) is working on it.

        • ballerinawithagun

          Thanks!

      • Tatiana Luján

        I think I saw Ewan in the IMDB ceremony pictures.

        • Kimbolina

          I could have sworn he presented with someone at the ceremony. And he had ugly hair. It made me sad.

          • Akemi

            He presented with Emma Thompson.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Too many man crushes in one post. Kevin for the win. Love me some Kevin.

    • ovarB

      “He’s an ANGRY Elf!!”
      Sorry…just can’t help myself. :P

      • Ginger

        I was JUST scrolling down to type the same thing! I’m so glad that somebody else saw the angry little elf. “Call me an elf one more time.”

    • Jenna621

      James Marsden can do no wrong.

      • kimmeister

        He won this carpet for me, no contest.

    • DeTrop

      ‘Hated the Sherlock premiere’.

      Yes. You nailed it. All the waiting and all the hype and imnsho a major FLOP.
      The good thing, it can only get better.

      BTW, Kevin Spacey for the win.

      • fursa_saida

        Hated it too. But then over the two-year hiatus I came to retroactively hate a lot of the first two seasons too, so it’s not exactly a surprise for me.

    • Carla_Charlton

      So do men not wear cumberbunds any more with their tuxes? I don’t really like being able to see the belt buckle and that little bit of shirt at the bottom of the tux, which you always see now because these guys either have their hands in their pockets or their jackets are fit fairly slim-ly. Being able to see the shirt or belt really makes the whole thing look a lot less formal.

      • filmcricket

        So very much agreed.

      • Rebecca Zmarzly

        Why do you need a cumberbund when you have a Cumberbatch…

      • jw_ny

        I haven’t noticed a cummerbund on a man in, like, forever. ..;) Maybe they’re viewed as being too formal and conservative…idk. But, seeing the belt buckle with a tux…especially like Josh Hollaway’s (otherwise he looks pretty sharp) just looks completely wrong. Seeing that little white triangle of shirt between the top of the pant and the bottom of the jacket bugs me too.

        • Carla_Charlton

          Ah, right–it’s cummerbund, rather than as I spelled it. I must have Sherlock on my mind.

    • shirab

      Jesse T F, your pants are so shiny that they have fallen victim to an odd shadowy effect that makes it look, it must be said, as if you weren’t able to get to the restroom in time.

      • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

        Prom tux.

    • marlie

      I heart Peter Dinklage so hard.
      Kevin Spacey will never go out of style.
      Cuba Gooding’s tux was a major needle-scratch.
      LOVED James Marsden’s navy tux.
      Justin Mikita and Jesse Tyler Ferguson wouldn’t look quite SO cutesy if one of them wasn’t in an Easter-hued tux. I like both, but maybe one at a time, gents.

      • MilaXX

        Total agree with your about Justin & Jesse. That Easter parade levels of colorful.

    • Sarah

      I am not dignifying the Sherlock trolling with a response, despite the rage building up inside me at such a ridiculous comment. What, exactly, was there NOT to like? It was 100% pure delight. PURE DELIGHT. Aw, dammit. Sorry couldn’t help myself. Anyways, more Cumberbatch please!

      • Scimommy

        Aaand breathe!

        • Sarah

          ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Yes, that IS better :)

      • MilaXX

        It felt a little too nudge nudge, wink wink to me like a mockery of every bad fan fic ever written.

        • Sarah

          I agree about the nudging and winking, though it struck me as more of a tip of the cap to the crazy theories and fanfic than a mockery. Then again, I have not read any of it so I may be uneducated on this particular aspect…

        • misstressofsylar

          It’s a known fact that Moffat has always had some kind of hatred towards fandoms.

          • MilaXX

            yep, and it’s times like this it shows.

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

          That was what I loved about it – pure self-indulgent fan-baiting. With a moment designed to make tumblr explode.

      • fursa_saida

        My issue is that the show’s levels of Sherlock: No Consequences have reached truly unbearable proportions for me, and I have a lot of problems with the way the show handles women. But I’m glad so many have enjoyed this season so much! It just doesn’t work for me anymore.

    • Janet B

      Please, either a pajama top or slippers but not both.

    • RCH

      I love Omar so I don’t care what he’s wearing. J Holloway, J Marsden and despite the horrible hair J Leto were very well dressed in my humble opinion. B Cooper was well dressed as well, and I also loved P Dinklage.

      • Eva_baby

        I just nodded my head fondly when i saw Michael K. Williams. Omar used to go get his Honey-Nut Cheerios wearing his pajamas. So…this works out just fine.

    • Billie_Dawn

      Dinklage looks PISSED.

      I usually find Kevin Spacey off-putting, but I have to admit that he always looks good in a tux.

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      He may be posing like a douche, but hot damn Damian Lewis is gorgeous. :)

      • marlie

        He doesn’t really do it for me, so you can have Damian, and I’ll take Josh Holloway home with me.

        • SuzBald

          I thought we might all heave a collective sigh of relief that he’s back on our airwaves and web sites!

      • MilaXX

        tiny mouth

    • Anna

      I’m really into the pyjama top and slippers actually.

      James Marsden + Midnight blue tux = YUM

      There’s bitchy resting face and then there’s Alfie Allen/Theon Greyjoy’s serial killer resting face.

    • MK03

      I’m half-expecting Cuba Gooding Jr to shriek “YOU SAID THE SECRET WORD!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!”

      • demidaemon

        And what was the secret word, Pee Wee, I mean, Cuba?

    • Imasewsure

      I kind of hated the Sherlock premiere too… too precious and too much of the “Mind Palace” stuff… still better than everything else though and happy to have it but definitely not my favorite.

    • TTotaler

      MARSDEN FOR THE WIN! As someone who happens to be younger than JM, I’m always amazed at how he looks like he’s in his 20s. I’ll have what he’s having. But everything is perfectly in order here – fit, grooming, that face.

      I like the jacket on Brian Geraghty. (Who is he? And while we’re at it, who’s Alfie Allen?)

      I like that look on Matt Damon, even the glasses (minus the transitions!)

      I’m also jealous of how young Jared Leto looks, but get that hair in chignon stat!

      And the season 4 premiere of Sherlock was my first ep, and I was baffled (not in a good way).

      • marlie

        Alfie Allen is Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones. No idea who Geraghty is.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        Alfie Allen is also the brother of the British singer Lily Allen.

    • Sarah

      Josh Holloway: you are HOT. Even though I watched Battle of the Year over the weekend and it sucked surprisingly hard for a dance movie.

    • Shawn EH

      Matt Damon is such a DILF at this point, glasses and all.

    • JuliaInBlack

      “Josh Holloway”
      Guhhhhhh…..
      Scroll.
      “Get your pants hemmed, Dimples.”
      SNORT

    • lobsterlen

      Seeing Kevin Spacey has me counting the days to Valentines Day and the start of House of Cards. What a perfect way to spend Valentines Day watching all that evil emotional political manipulation.
      Glad to see Josh again. It is as if he has been stuck on a island in a time warp.
      Michael gets a pass from me for all eternity for his performance as Omar.
      Matt Damon looks like he is trying to look paunchy and middle aged.

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        I finally got around to watching House of Cards. So good, so addictive! Also, now I never want to hear Kevin Spacey speaking without a southern accent,

    • Imasewsure

      Nice to see Bradley Cooper in Gucci instead of Tom Ford. I like Tom Ford tuxes but not so much on him… and Jared Leto looks stupid… someone give him a movie quick so he will be forced to cut his hair!!

      • Ginger

        Let’s talk about Bradley Cooper for a minute. I finally watched “The Silver Linings Playbook” the other night. Yes, I’m sure I’m one of the last people to see it…even my 17 year-old son has seen it and loved it (he watched it with me). I’ve always thought that he was a good actor, but I absolutely LOVED him in this one! Also…sexy eyes!

    • Karen Belgrad

      Serious question… From what I can tell, outside of being a skosh tight, there’s nothing inherently wrong with Jared Leto’s outfit. I’d have preferred a colored bowtie, but I don’t know if white is a cardinal sin.

      He’s an accomplished musician and his hair is part of that image, so he’s clearly not cutting it for awards season.

      I’m not sure why he gets a “whatever”, but what could he being doing differently? Or is he just on the irrational hate list?

      (Admittedly, I have a Jordan Catalano soft spot, but I do have irrational dislike for Juliette Lewis.)

      • Maryanne525

        Okay, thank you. I was coming to say this exact thing. I do not have a Jordan Catalano soft spot, AND I dislike long hair on men, but i don’t get the “oh whatever,” comment about him every time, (unless they do just irrationally hate him, in which case totally fair. We all have those lists.) I asked the same question on another post and someone said something to the fact that he could “stand there without looking like a douche!” Uh…what does that have to do with his clothes?? Anyway, totally agree. I think he looks nice here.

        • marlie

          Maybe it’s more of the messy, un-groomed nature of it. I don’t like long hair on guys, but if you’re going to do it, at least look like you’ve washed and brushed it in the last couple of days. That’s MY biggest problem with him and his hair.

          • Maryanne525

            Hmm, I think his hair looks clean and groomed (perfectly parted down the middle, etc.) It’s funny that I’m defending it, as I’ve said I don’t particularly enjoy long locks on gentlemen. I guess I just don’t get the uproar (not from you, or even from this website, other sites on the interwebs) because it’s perfectly fine for women to shave their head or wear it very short. Personally, it feels like a nice break after man after man in a black tux with short crew cut. But hey! To each their own!

      • MilaXX

        He’s not here as a musician, he there as an actor. He needed to pull in back into a ponytail.

        • Maryanne525

          Why? I dislike long hair on lads personally, but when he did have it pulled back at the Globes, the world collectively lost its shit about his “man bun.” A lot of women with long hair wear it down at award shows… (genuinely curious of your opinion, by the way. I think my comment has a bit of an accusatory tone that I didn’t intend!)

          • MilaXX

            His hair at the globes was a sloppy, crazy mess. He is not a woman. Just a matter of opinion but I think if you’re wearing a tux with long hair as a guy just a simple pulled back look is all that’s needed. This ombre mane looks more coiffed then 75% of the women attending. It just felt too affected.

            • Maryanne525

              Ah, okay. I get what you’re saying, we’ll just agree to disagree.

            • Karen Belgrad

              I love that this is THE ONLY website in the world where that can be the end of a disagreement…. nobody swears, accuses people of trolling, etc… We, the BK/UBF are such an amazing example for the rest of the web!

            • Maryanne525

              Right?? It’s a refreshing change from other sites I frequent. I attribute that to TLo for calling people out when they get too heated. (Guilty of doing that in the past! Then I realized I was getting defensive about celebrities and their clothing. Not worth it, Maryanne. Take it down a notch.) :)

            • Imasewsure

              Well the “Sherlock” debate may get ugly… time will tell!!

            • Imasewsure

              Yes you nailed my issues too… and we would absolutely rail on any woman who showed up with hair like this on the RC (a tad bit “early Zosia” isn’t it?) so I think the man/ladystar defense doesn’t fly either!

            • terpsichory

              Now I understand that Olivia Wilde tweet: Actual note I just sent my manager, whose job it is to handle crucial
              decisions: “who does Jared Leto’s ombré. This is important.”

            • MilaXX

              It really was spectacular. I could see why she would tweet that.

            • jw_ny

              I preferred that crazy sloppy mess of hair at the Globes over this…it was at least styled. :)

        • Karen Belgrad

          I guess I don’t get why a ponytail is mandatory. His hair looks clean, it’s not frizzy, which is more than some lady stars can accomplish.

          • Maryanne525

            Agreed!

      • Ginger

        I totally agree! I think he looks very nice. I AM filtering him through musician lenses, so I don’t mind the long hair and facial hair. It suits his personality. I don’t get the Jordan Catalano reference, so I guess I just think he has great eyes and I like his music. So there.

        • @Biting Panda

          “I don’t get the Jordan Catalano reference…” Awe. Unborn Fawn? That was the role that put him on the radar. The year was 1994. The teens were angst ridden. And Jordan Catalano was the boy we were crushing on the hardest. (The show was My So Called Life. Starring Claire Danes.) The fact that he went on to be a bit of rock star, makes it all the more awesome.

            I’m nearing 40, so this probably should’ve been on my radar back then, but it wasn’t. Did I automatically lose my BK card? *sniff*

            • Karen Belgrad

              We were both a few years past the target demo, and I admittedly didn’t watch it from the onset, so no BK revocation. But… definitely check it out. No other show has ever quite captured teenage angst so perfectly and without a lack of condensation.

            • @Biting Panda

              NO! It’s like when you get carded for buying booze, and not just because it’s policy.

          • decormaven

            I was way past grown-a*** woman when it debuted and I loved it, stem to stern. Smart writing, good casting, and wonderful use of current music. It still holds up- it’s classic.

        • Karen Belgrad

          My So Called Life from the early 90’s. He played Jordan Catalano and made many a teen/young adult lady swoon. Clair Danes was the star of the show, it was her big break.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        THANK YOU!! Out of the bunch he’s one of the best. Not a banker suit, perfect fit, different than the standard black tux. I don’t get the whatever. He looks H-O-T-T HOT!!!

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        I have no idea of his music or anything else about him. All I know is he won my heart as Rayon in the Dallas Buyers Club, and he can do with it what he will, however he turns up looking. ;)

        I do wish that the ends were tidied up a bit, it looks like he hasn’t had a haircut in a while. But j’adore him.

      • http://www.flickr.com/photos/divine_aphasia/ Constant Cat

        I just see “Tuxedo Jesus” when I look at him. Not a unique sentiment, perhaps, but he just looks so evangelical. Bambi eyes, long ol’ hair, dewy skin. Tuxedo Jesus.

        • demidaemon

          That sounds so much sexier than the actual picture.

        • AvaLehra

          Tuxedo Jesus? I love that Depeche Mode song.

      • jw_ny

        I think the tux looks ok…some fit quibbles. For me, his hair IS the issue, and I understand the musician thing and all, and don’t expect him to cut it. We criticize women all the time for not & poor styling of their hair on the RC. Jared should be held to the same standard, as well as any man on the RC regarding hair. He’s dressed nicely in a tux…not in a tee shirt & jeans….so a better styled hairdo would be more appropriate considering the venue. The cocker spaniel, JBF, ombre do ain’t working with the clothes and the event. Maybe if he pulled it back into a pony tail, or even put some product in it so that it looked more controlled. His beard looks neatly trimmed, although I think I see neck beard…which is a no no here. ;)

    • Noah

      Gentlemen,

      Is hemming your pants this fucking difficult?

      Love,
      Me

    • MilaXX

      Jared Leto would look good if that hair wasn’t their. AT the very least I wish he had just pulled it back into a ponytail
      LOVE Jesse Tyler Fergusen, but that’s a bit too much color.
      I like Micheal K Williams shoes and suit, but when I saw that shirt & tie all I could tink of was the first episode of The Wire when Omar dresses all crazy to go to court.
      Sherlock felt like it was trying too hard to be clever. It was like the writers had been reading all the fan forums and made an episode that mocked them.

      • filmcricket

        Oh my god, that episode of The Wire is in the pantheon of greatest episodes ever. Omar vs. Maury Levy: a throwdown for the ages. I’m going to have to go home and watch it again now.

        Was MKW there as part of the 12 Years a Slave cast?

        • MilaXX

          I don’t think so.

      • Jessica Freeman

        Thank YOU. Gosh I couldn’t place Michael K Williams to a character. And I loved Omar.

      • Lilak

        Emily Nussbaum’s article in this week’s New Yorker ‘splained it all for me … It helped (though I haven’t reached 100% sold on the episode).

      • Courtney

        Jared Leto needs to talk to Chris Hemsworth about making long hair work on a red carpet.

    • Chelsea

      I swoon over Jon Snow. And James Marsden NAILED IT.

    • sagecreek

      Hey, Omar can wear WHATEVER HE WANTS.

      • editrixie

        Oh, indeed.

    • Jecca2244

      thought Brian G did a a great job on Boardwalk this season. Ahhh Jon Snow. might be time to let the beard go. but i assume it is for filming. i watched the talented mr. ripley over the weekend for the first time. Matt Damon was a babe! as was Jude Law. GP has gotten better with age.

    • Pennymac

      Lustful sigh at the smooth that is Kevin Spacey. He’s terribly ambiguous about his private life, isn’t he? I find that makes him more attractive. Can’t wait for HOC to come back on 2/14.

      • sagecreek

        So curious as to where they are gonna go! Will they even try to go the route of the Brit series?

    • Joanna

      Justin and Jess = Lloyd and Harry in Dumb and Dumber. Sorry – that’s all I saw.

      • Imasewsure

        They need ruffles and a top hat but I can see where you are getting the vibe… so funny

    • Erica_Vuitton

      I think that’s the least douchey I’ve seen Bradley Cooper on a RC so I’ll take it. Jared Leto looks hot damn yummy to me. James Marsden is killing it in that tux WOW! And I can’t see Alfie Allen without thinking of Lily’s song “Alfie” where she expresses sisterly concern for her brother by calling him a twAHt and complaining he’ll never get laid if he continues to stay in his room smoking pot, masturbating, and playing video games all day. Hilarious.

    • Kerri

      I think I could get behind Cuba’s plaid tux if it was darker (black or navy) and not this light gray. It would make a very nice suit, but it looks a little casual for a tux.

    • VioletFem

      Mardsen, Leto and Spacey are my favorites on this redcarptet.

      I really do hope that TLo does a review of the current Sherlock season. I didn’t hate the first episode but I also didn’t love it. It was very discombobulating and it seemed a little to self-aware of the fandom that has developed around it. I’ve also seen the 2nd and 3rd episodes and so far I only really like the third one.

    • Lilyana_F

      James Marsden is perfection. That is all.

    • Lilak

      It’s been said a gajillion times, but ….. As much attention to as many things as the women devote to these occasions (to varying degrees and with varying success, but still), HOW HARD IS IT, guys, to see to it that those pants are hemmed properly?! Even the men you’d expect to tend to this little item do not. I don’t get it.

    • CelandineM

      Yep hated the Sherlock premier with a burning passion. Just kept sitting there thinking “what?” and debated changing the channel.

      Also, Kevin Spacey and James Marsden FTW

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1180174329 Elizabeth Phillips SC TSu

      Alfie Allen – laughed until I had an asthma attack.

    • Patrick Cleary

      Jared Leto, in: “Trying Too Hard: The Jared Leto Story, Starring Jared Leto, based on ‘Trying Too Hard,’ The Jared Leto Story by Jared Leto'” starring Jared Leto as Jared Leto.

    • jilly_d

      I’ll have two scoops of Kit Harrington please. Peter Dinklage has not one fuck to give, bless him.

    • jjtxgrrl

      On-point, and hilarious as always TLO!!!

    • ewa_pl

      Ha! Wait till you see episode 2, you’ll think the premiere was a work of art in comparison ;)

    • Shawn EH

      Best bowtie to Jesse Tyler Ferguson!

    • ashtangajunkie

      James Marsden wins (my heart).

    • another_laura

      Alfie Allen: Why do we suspect he’s spent the last year with his hands over his crotch like that?

      Thank you, gentlemen, made my day!

    • Danielle

      CLARK GREGG *FANGIRLS*

    • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

      Go away, Jared Leto.

      • Shawn EH

        Or at least get a hair stylist.

    • http://www.jaimieteekell.com/ Jaimie

      YES. Bring on the Sherlock critiques. I’ve already seen ‘em and my opinions are formed. I’m excited to hear yours.

    • housefulofboys

      Why the hell would Jason Bateman NEED another facial expression!?

      • Lower L

        His pants are well-hemmed, unlike most of the men in this post.

    • SVLynn

      Thanks for that, after a very bad day, it is a given that I will laugh out loud after seeing what you both have to say.

    • GoAwayKardash

      Damian Lewis’ shoes are FAB

    • jw_ny

      I think the majority of the men posted above did rather well. Sure there are the typical fit & hem issues…but overall it’s obvious that effort was put in. Also…I’m happy to see ties, and no black shirts. I’m not crazy about the colored tuxes that Justin & Jesse are wearing, but I absolutely love the tux that James Marsden is…he wins imo! Perhaps if they were deeper/darker/richer colors I’d be ok with them…and Cuba’s tux is just ridiculous. Idk, but tuxes just seem like they should be dark to me, or at least dark pants if going with a lighter jacket like Matt McC often does.

    • Jessica Goldstein

      Peter Dinklage is one of the few celebs I love enough that the scowl makes me laugh and like him more instead of thinking, “it’s your job: smile already.”

      • Gatto Nero

        He looks like he wants to kick the photographer’s ass.

    • Ashleigh

      why oh why do you “whatever” Jared Leto? That tux is phenomenal, esp the white tie. Am I missing something? I really like his high end/grunge combo…

    • Kathi

      I can never get over how little Jennifer Grey looks like “Jennifer Grey” since her nose job. But she and Clark Gregg look cute together.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        I didn’t even realize that was Jennifer Grey.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      The Alfie Allen comment had me laughing. Jared Leto looks whip thin and hot from the neck down. What is with his headsuit these days? Is it for a role, or is he becoming a big weirdo?

      The Sherlock premiere was underwhelming. I found my interest drifting. I wish Watson and Holmes would just hook up already and get it over with.

      • Goldie

        When Jared Leto isn’t acting (he told Ellen it had been 6 years since he made a movie), he’s the lead singer for the band 30 Seconds to Mars. That’s his rock star hair.

        • ShaoLinKitten

          That was rock star hair in the 80s, Mr. Leto. I mean, it’s his head, and no one has to wear that style but him, but still. It’s a shame, because he has one of the prettiest faces ever to grace a man.

    • bellafigura1

      Kevin Spacey wins, no contest. The guy with the Gucci slippers and the crazy shirt would have been my favorite, but for the bowtie.

    • Goldie

      Has everyone seen the video where two horrible red carpet reporters spoil season 3 of Homeland for Jennifer Lawrence while she’s fangirling over Damian Lewis? She just told them she’d only seen two seasons of it. She may have started crying but she was PISSED.

    • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

      Is that Jennifer Grey with Clark Gregg? Haven’t seen her in awhile.

      • Courtney

        Yep. They’ve been married for years.

    • http://aliesunny.tumblr.com aliesunny

      James Marsden is perfection.

    • somebody blonde

      Jesus, Matt Damon needs to get rid of those glasses. He looks like Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Capote.

    • Fred Vaughn

      Yes, Damian looks a tad douchey, but HE MAKES YOU LOOK. WTF with Matt Damon, though?

    • ms_kat

      Clark Gregg is looking like a young John Spencer.

    • quiltrx

      I feel we must give Leto his props. That’s pretty much perfect fit going on, and his hair is clean and he looks like he quite possibly smells nice. I hope he gets back to acting more–I haven’t seen DBC (I hear he’s great) but I’ve really enjoyed him in everything I’ve seen.
      Other random observations…
      I come down on the YAY side for Aaron’s shoes.
      Justin looks like a 40s/50s band leader, and that’s a compliment.
      Bradley needs to keep this hair, only time I’ve ever liked it.
      Peter appears to be remembering the time Buddy called him “an Angry Elf”!

    • Yolanda13

      My sentiments exactly in re: Jared Leto. Whatever! And I love the midnight blue tux trend, but at the end of the day, keeping it classic like Kevin Spacey always works for me.

    • titaness25

      Oh, I thought the caption on Mario Lopez’s photo was ‘Too tight FACE’ and I was ready to agree…disappointment.

    • Closet Crisis

      James Marsden! Yummmm….

    • Chris ‘Supermarky’ Maher

      obviously these outfits aren’t even worth talking about

    • AvaLehra

      Is that Jennifer Grey with Gregg Clark? It took me a good three minutes to place who that was — and I’m still not sure.

      • natty_bat

        Yes, they’ve been married for a few years now, iirc.

    • natty_bat

      Peter Dinklage’s tuxes are usually perfectly tailored. I wonder if it’s his trouser-puddles that have him looking so grumpy. Still a forever-crush of mine, though. (Since The Station Agent.)

    • Alloy Jane

      Love JTF and have minimal interest in everyone else. Except for BC. I’ve never watched Sherlock before, not until yesterday and since the end of last season and the beginning of this season were my inaugural episodes, I absolutely loved it. I thought it was hilarious and am very surprised I’ve never watched this show before. Although I wish Watson would’ve met his fiance the normal way but I’m not too fussed. I look forward to having a smart new show to watch.

    • GinaGeo

      Whenever I see a blue tuxedo, all I can think of is “Armani doesn’t make a blue tux-a-do, Mr. Bahnks.”
