And with the Golden Globes behind us, Award Show Season is officially underway. I have always liked the Golden Globes because it mixes both television and movies which in my opinion makes for a less serious, fun environment. The Academy Awards are of course my favorite, but it often seems a bit tense and everyone takes themselves quite seriously. The Golden Globes are supposed to be a bit less dressy, and often more playful, but not to the extent of the Grammys.
Sunday night I was happily surprised by the clothes on the red carpet. There was experimentation and some very sleek and sophisticated gowns. There were only a handful of dresses that I really disliked, and a few lackluster ones, but other than that the show made me very excited to see what is planned for the Oscars!
