Tina And Amy Will Be Great, But How Will They Compare To Our 7 Favorite SNL Alum Hosts?

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler Host Golden Globes

It is without question that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are going to dominate this Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony. We know this like we know the sun will rise tomorrow. Between their hosting gig and Andy Samberg‘s new job hosting the Independent Spirit Awards, we started to wonder which SNL alums have also tried their hands (and succeeded!) at the award show hosting game.

From Snakes On A Plane To Gigli: The Least Award-Worthy Roles Of The 2013 Golden Globe Nominees

The least awards-worthy roles for 2013 Golden Globes nominees

The nominees for the 2013 Golden Globes were announced bright and early this morning, and the list didn’t feature a ton of surprises. Perhaps the most surprising part is that these men and women have all kept truckin’ with their acting careers despite having made some hilariously bad role choices in the past. Congrats guys, you’re an illustration of the enduring human spirit! Or maybe you all just got better agents…

To be fair, folks like Leonardo DiCaprio, Helen Hunt and Joaquin Phoenix when they made their turkeys, so they didn’t know any better. But not everyone in this list has that excuse! Ben Affleck might have a GG nod for best director with Argo, but it still doesn’t excuse the fact that he helped bring Gigli to life. And why have we all forgotten that The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies was in Snakes On A Plane, or that Alec Baldwin appeared as Mr. Conductor in the children’s train movie Thomas And The Magic Track? It’s pretty priceless!

Let’s dive deep into the IMDB page of these acclaimed thespians and pull out some truly amazing forgotten films. It’s like cinematic naked baby photos! And always remember: You too can still rise to the top, even if you’ve made a movie as bad as She-Devil.

Golden Globes Nominations: History, Spies, Salmon … And A Few Girls For Good Measure

the 2013 Golden Globe nominations were announced

With Jessica Alba, Ed Helms and Megan Fox announcing the nominees for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, we thought maybe there would be a few more unconventional choices this year. But alas, there was not a single Magic Mike nomination in sight. Instead, historical fare like Lincoln, Argo and Django Unchained led the pack on the movie side, while Game Change and Homeland took over on TV. With Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook dominating the comedy/musical categories, we’re kind of leaving it up to the older ladies of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel — and Jack Black — to make this a less serious occasion. Also, apparently we need to check out Salmon Fishing in Yemen, since that little-seen Ewan McGregor/Emily Blunt flick nabbed a few nods (and we’re trying not to hold Beasts of the Southern Wild’s snub against it). But we are happy that New Girl, Girls, Downton Abbey and Nashville are bringing some awesome girl power to the event, which will be appropriately hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey on January 15. Check out the full list of nominees below.

Will Francesca Eastwood Be As Successful As These Past Miss Golden Globes?

Francesca Eastwood, next year's Miss Golden Globe, could end up like Hollywood stars Melanie Griffith or Linda Evans, who held the title when they were young.

Being named Miss Golden Globe (or the rare Mr.) must be a strange honor — as far as we can tell, it’s basically the Hollywood Foreign Press saying, “Hey, you’re a young, attractive daughter/son of someone famous. Will you please wear this fancy gown and help hand out awards so we don’t have to hire a model?” On the other hand, it’s also sometimes a nice way for a PYT to get his/her name and face out there. Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca was named Miss Golden Globe for 2013 yesterday, and she’ll actually be following in the footsteps of her older sister Kathryn (2005), which is a first. What we’re really wondering is whether the actress — who’s now known mostly due to her mom’s reality show, Mrs. Eastwood and Company — will also be following in the footsteps of the Globe honorees who did make a name for themselves, from The Beverly HillbilliesDonna Douglas and Dynasty‘s Linda Evans to Melanie Griffith and her daughter, Dakota Johnson (Ben and Kate). Check out the ladies (and man) who turned this into a golden (sorry) opportunity:

Elton John’s Husband Apologizes For Those Nasty Madonna Comments

Oh, this is awkward. Elton John’s husband David Furnish feels so sorry for those comments he made about Madonna‘s Golden Globes win for Best Original Song earlier this week. Well…Furnish feels so something, that’s for sure. “”Best song??? F— off!!!,” Furnish initially raged after Madge’s song “Masterpiece” snatched the award instead of John’s “Hello, Hello.” David ranted, “Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it’s narcissism.” On one hand, David is way too attached to the world’s critical response to Elton’s film Gnomeo & Juliet. On the other hand, LOL.

Today Furnish addressed his comments while not technically admitting they were wrong. “My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion. My passion for our film Gnomeo & Juliet and belief in Elton’s song really got my emotional juices going,” David posted to Facebook. “But I must say for the record that I do believe Madonna is a great artist, and that Elton and I wish her all the best for next week’s premiere of the film W.E.” David’s passion for their film Gnomeo & Juliet knows no bounds and permits no allegiances, Madonna. We and David Furnish have at least that one thing in common.

The Artist Earns 12 BAFTA Nods — Here Are The Real 5 Reasons To See It

So, The Artist, a movie with by a French director, with French stars, that takes place in Hollywood, is so completely dominating awards season that it’s earned 12 nods for the British kudosfest the BAFTAs. It’s already won three Golden Globes and four Critics’ Choice awards. And it’s nominated for all the other big pre-Oscar awards: NBR, PGA, DGA, SAG and Independent Spirit. But we worry that all this lofty buzz (not to mention the attention it garnered during Cannes) is actually doing the opposite of drawing certain people to the theaters. A critically acclaimed, bound-to-be-Oscar-nominated black-and-white silent movie by a foreign dude? “No thanks,” some of you are saying. But I am here to say you are wrong. Here’s why you should see it:

1. Uggie as “The Dog.” If you saw the Jack Russell terrier hamming it up onstage at the Globes, you got a tiny taste of his scene-stealing antics. Also, Robert Pattinson fans should recognized this talented pooch as Queenie from Water for Elephants. He’s not just a pretty face, either — his heroic feats rival Lassie’s in the pic, and he may have made us cry once or twice. There’s even a campaign for him to get an Oscar.

The Golden Globes Back Story: 20 Of The Sexiest Backs On The Red Carpet

Swooping cowls, cut-outs, drapes, racer-backs, sheer lace work … Golden Globe gowns were as sexy from the back as they were in front this year. Whether it was Lea Michele‘s sheer silver Marchesa to co-star Dianna Agron’s and Evan Rachel Wood’s avian-inspired, red-hot lacy Giles Deacon dress and Gucci Premiere emerald gown, respectively —- the back is officially back. A couple of other favorites include a Glee actress again. Naya Rivera stunned in a silver Vera Wang gown which had a lovely keyhole back. We also truly appreciated the back view of Kathleen Robertson’s Maria Lucia Hohan dress, Stacey Keibler’s stunning Valentino, Kate Beckinsale’s Roberto Cavalli and Heidi Klum’s sexy Calvin Klein.

Golden Globes Battle Of The Bands: Charlize Theron Vs. Michelle Williams

Two of the most stylish women in Hollywood picked the same accessory at the Golden Globes this year. Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams both put on  girly headbands to complement their gorgeous gown. Charlize is on our 20 Best-Dressed list, FYI. She wore a delicate, bejewelled silver headband, that looked lovely with her side-swept waves and her Dior Couture gown. Michelle wore a jeweled, vintage Fred Leighton headband, which vibed beautifully with her strawberry blond hair and navy and black Jason Wu dress. The question is, who do you think won the battle of the bands?

Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman’s Golden Globe Dress Gets Out-Marchesa’d By Olivia Wilde

Georgina Chapman is Marchesa, people. She established the brand back in 2004 with Keren Craig, and we all know how the brand took off after that. Everyone wears Marchesa at some point, but if anyone should get the most tulle, the biggest ruffle and the most intricate of drapes, it’s Georgina because she owns the frickin’ thing. All she needs to do is sketch something real quick, and it’s that one design that no one else will have. So, when we saw her Grecian gown with the embellished neckline and cuffs at the Golden Globes, we were a bit surprised she chose that particular number. Because Olivia Wilde already wore it four months ago (in September 2011) for the world premiere of Butter in Toronto. Something more original next time, perhaps, Georgina? Who do you think wore it better?
