The hype surrounding Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the 2014 Golden Globe Awards set the stage for the expectations for Sunday night’s program. Overall, the evening proved very glamorous and successful. Countless A-List stars graced the red carpet leading up to Fey and Poehler’s witty shenanigans and the distribution of awards. A number of esteemed stars attended the show, including Meryl Streep, Leonardo
Dicaprio, Johnny Depp, and Sandra Bullock to name a few. The Hollywood Foreign Press awarded this past year’s successful films and television shows, demonstrating many notable accomplishments. The hit television show “Breaking Bad” racked up several awards, while Steve McQueen’s “12 Years A Slave” appeared to be a favorite film.
The fashion on the red carpet provided the evening’s most notable moments. As expected, entertainment’s most fashionable stars brought their best looks to the red carpet. Emma Watson in particular sported a chic red Dior couture dress whose provocative slits seemed risky until she showed off her long black trousers, completing the look and eliminating any negative impressions. The leader in last night’s red carpet fashion, however, is Cate Blanchett who exhibited a black lace Armani Couture dress. Her perfectly coiffed hair and dazzling diamond Chopard earrings complimented this long gown. Sporting this new lace style enabled her to dominate any possible competition for the best-dressed star on the red carpet.
Julia Roberts flashed a black and white Dolce & Gabbana dress that drew the most attention from critics. This bold, risky attire that would otherwise be worn to a business meeting, would have been a flop had it not been sported by one of Hollywood’s leading actors. The greatest fashion failure of the night, unfortunately, goes to Drew Barrymore who showed up in a white gown covered in pink and orange flowers. Had the show taken place in the spring, this attire may have been acceptable, but this floral attire seemed out of place in mid-January. Known for her love of flowers, Barrymore proudly sported her dress, showing off her baby bump. In comparison to Olivia Wilde and Kerry Washington, whose fashionable outfits proudly displayed their baby bumps, Barrymore comes up last in the race for most fashionable mom to be.
The 2014 Golden Globes was guaranteed to be a success upon the announcement that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were to host the show. The heightened anticipation of what the two comedy ladies would do and say was well worth it, as they cracked jokes about many of the night’s most valued guests. Their targets ranged from George Clooney to Meryl Streep, while their wit and intelligence wowed the audience.
Apart from the sewage leak that flooded the red carpet prior to the show, the 2014 Golden Globe Awards was overall a success. Let us not believe that the mad panic associated with the sewage incident was entirely indicative of the evening, since the night ran smoothly, ending on time with a limited number of mildly shocking incidents.

Golden Globes: Mia Farrow and son criticise Woody Allen
Director’s former wife and son use Twitter to mock him as he is honoured for award
Woody Allen’s former partner Mia Farrow posted a mocking message on Twitter as he was honoured at the Golden Globes ceremony – with her son joining in to reignite allegations that the director sexually abused his own daughter when she was seven.
Allen, the 78-year -old director, was honoured by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with a lifetime achievement Golden Globes award on Sunday evening.
The director, who is “not an awards person”, was not at the ceremony in Los Angeles at which he was lauded for his contribution to the industry.
Farrow turned to Twitter to voice her displeasure as the award was collected on Allen’s behalf by Diane Keaton, his co-star in Annie Hall.
“Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS … Nite all, ” Farrow wrote.
