I am blogging outside of my usual focus today ….
The Golden Globes were presented the other night and personally I think that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler ( image source) should be permanent hostesses of the Golden Globes! Just in case anyone from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is visiting Katherines Corner today ( laughing). I crack myself up… They made it so fun to watch. They took a few risks with their jokes. But everyone, including me, seemed to enjoy their silliness. Amy Poehler made out with Bono! What… so funny, I was rolling.:-)
It is difficult for me to be start struck (unless of course it is the fan-tab-ulous, Cher). I have enjoyed meeting celebrities and have even dated celebrities in my lifetime (a whole lifetime ago). Don’t they have just the most amazing jobs! In the interest of full disclosure- I was much, much younger and it was long before I met my amazing husband. He is the true love of my life and keeper of my heart. I have shared my celebrity tid bits with you in a past blog post.
There are four celebrity award shows that I love to watch- The Golden Globes, The Academy Awards, The Grammy Awards and the Country Music Awards ♥ The pre-shows are one of my favorite things. Seeing everyone dressed in their finery and accessorized with gorgeous jewels from Neil Lane, Fred Leighton, Harry Winston and others just makes me smile. I always enjoy seeing the dresses and watching the pre-show interviews. When celebrities relax a bit on the red carpet and share little insights it can be both informative and often eyebrow-raising. Trust me I am glued to the television. The day after the award shows the Fashion Police are on high alert and ready to let us know who chose wisely and who should invest in a stylist.
I rarely write about fashion or fashion trends. But, I couldn’t help but notice that the “man bun” was present at the golden globes. I am a huge fan of Jared Leto ( his acting and his band, 30 Seconds To Mars) and he has terrific hair ! I have always thought long hair on men ( certain men) is attractive ( TMI?) Jared wore his hair pulled back and tidy and I thought he looked terrific.
Alex Ebert’s hair was much more random and appeared to be just loosely resting on top of his head. I’m not judging, just mentioning it was a bit of a mess (images source)
Oh the dresses! There were so many beautiful gowns worn on the red carpet. I will never be able to include all of the ones I liked. But, I did pick three of the many that I really liked. At The Thursday Favorite Things blog hop this week I will share my very favorite.

Did you watch the Golden Globes? What was your favorite thing? The gowns, the hostesses, the winners?
