And there we have it. What do we think? No big surprises there, I don’t think. Who do we think will take the big awards? I think 12 Years a Slave has got Best Picture on lock, but anything could happen. The Oscars will be held on March 2nd, so there’s plenty of time to make your predictiongs.

The Golden Globes happened last night and man, what a trainwreck! People were drunk and cursing all over the place. And Clooney wasn’t even there.
But you know what was there? The best, worst, and most WTF celebrity fashion had to offer. Let’s take a look through all these GG outfits and pick out which ones were deserving of BEST, WORST, and WTF.

Amy Adams is gorgeous, talented, rich and has a great career. Seems like the recipe for soaring self-confidence, right? Wrongs! Turns out, Amy’s always been insecure (which we knew since she talks about it all the time) and it hasn’t gone away just because she’s made it in Hollywood.
From Elle UK:
“Being an actress hasn’t made me insecure. I was insecure long before I declared I was an actress. I like not being noticed.”
“It has been a struggle because I love performing, but if I’m in a group of people and someone has a bigger personality I’m like, ‘Go ahead, and have fun!’ It looks like a lotta work.”
Girl, you gotta stop that bullshit. Yes, it’s endearing when someone is down-to-earth, but being self-deprecating (and not even in a humourous way) is not a good look for a grown ass woman. Of course everyone has their securities, no matter how perfect or beautiful or thin or whatever they seem to everyone else. No one’s arguing with that. But you don’t go on about it the way she does in interviews. Here’s hoping she can stop with that and enjoy being awesome.

Amy Adams is great, I think – she’s cute (like, “as a button”), a great actress (yes, including Enchanted) and seems pretty down-to-earth in every interview I’ve seen her do. However, homegirl needs to hook herself up with some self-esteem because some of the quotes from her new feature in Allure are downright sad. Sure, no one wants to hear anyone – especially a celebrity – go on and on about how beautiful and wonderful they are, but Amy self-deprecation to the next level as she discussed the opportunity to be part of the new Superman film.
“I’ve wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance — as some mere mortal. Let’s be real here. I don’t look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn’t anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot.”
“Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting. Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don’t see the point. I’m just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, ‘OMG, look at Amy!’ I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want.”
“I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face — it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.”

The Oscars are just a few weeks away and, to our pleasure, Hollywood is buzzing with celebs congregating at luncheons, dinners, photo-ops and then some more luncheons and dinners. While browsing through some of the images from these star-studded events, I stumbled upon Amy Adams in a purple dress that made me cringe and disapprovingly shake my head.
Tsk-tsk, Amy… This is not how you strike a pose, unless you are someone’s unmarried aunt in the privacy of your own home on a Sunday afternoon, and you want to throw a last cursory look in the mirror to make sure you haven’t tucked your skirt into the back of your panties (I have done that) before you go downstairs to bake a banana bread. I mean, this dress is so unflattering! Amy has always given me the pleasant vibe of a homely, sweet-natured woman, and I think she’s a brilliant actress, but the dress… no.
Adams did a little better in a lace LBD at the dinner for the Hollywood Reporter 2013 Oscar nominees last night, yet again, something is amiss. Is it the tan platform shoes? I don’t know. Enlighten me.
