Sunday night, the 69th annual Golden Globes were broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., and boy, were they exciting. Well, exciting for an awards show.
Ricky Gervais, who made such a scene last year, hosted the to-do and we have to say, he was remarkably tame. Sure, he was funny and a breath of fresh air from the same-old set of awards-show hosts, but not nearly as biting as we would have liked. It must be hard to be mean, though, in a room filled with such immense talent. And ego.
Still, it was a night to watch the stars glitter. There was Angelina Jolie, looking impossibly thin but also pretty glamorous. Oh, and Madonna--who won the award for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture--looking every bit the movie star (and speaking in what sounded like an American accent). Among the other incredible-looking celebs present were Claire Danes, who took home two awards for her brilliant Showtime series, Homeland; Kate Winslet, who won for Mildred Pierce; Michelle Williams; Jessica Lange; Meryl Streep; and Octavia Spencer. And those are just the ladies who won awards.
There were some pretty damn handsome guys in attendance as well. George Clooney was charming as always. And despite walking with a cane, Brad Pitt remains a complete dreamboat. Jean Dujardin, from The Artist, might have been the most handsome newcomer of the night. But as we tweeted during our live coverage of the event, Modern Family's Ty Burell was also looking pretty good.
The Oscars, which are sort of the crown jewel of Awards Season, won't air until Feb. 26, but after last night's glitz, we're going to need that time to get ready. After all, sitting on the couch and yelling at the TV about celebrities' clothing takes a lot out of you.
