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.

Between the amazing sequined belt on that excellent white party dress, Schmidt’s lap dance skills and Zooey D breaking it down carol-style, tonight’s ep of New Girl was the best White Anglo-Saxon Winter Privilege Night gift a person could ask for! While we’re sort of peeved they never made it to the Gorilla Twin’s annual thump-thump (is that like a kiki for bros, maybe?), we’re glad we got to spent the night riding along with the gang, like a little cranberry trapped inside Winston’s ear canal:
We love that this week’s New Girl episode was basically a love letter to Schmidt’s beautiful suits, what with their slim lines and emaciated ties. It goes without saying that said suits are destroyed in a bathtub accident, but we’re sure Schmidt will be back in his former sartorial glory soon. He spent all that time on his Suit Folder, after all! This way he just has to replace every…single…item…
Haha, thank goodness for all the cute outfits on New Girl tonight. It was a great distraction from this week’s existential rumination on the end of fertility, and the panic it inspired! Our single favorite moment had to be Jess psyching herself up to find out how many eggs she had left. It was both perfectly acted, and made our ovaries ache with jealousy that we don’t own the sick red printed dress she was wearing. A lot of this week’s episode made our ovaries ache, now that we think about it…
How did no one mention Winston’s pink and purple combo on last night’s New Girl? The man was wearing a lavender sweater over a pink Oxford and Nick didn’t zing him? There must be a zinger on the cutting room floor somewhere, because we were waiting for it the entire time. Luckily Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner stopped by as Jess’s adorable divorced parents so we were able to distract ourselves, but still. This is not Easter! Earth tones, people. Everything else in this holiday episode was adorable but where was Schmidt on that one?
Last night’s New Girl was a Very Special Episode dedicated to a very important, very magical time in every woman’s life: unemployment. Oh, and getting your period. Jess might have reached her breaking point trying to wrangle PMS and job interviews simultaneously, but at least we got to see her full wardrobe of robes and pajama sets! Honestly though, we’re ready for Jess to wear human clothes again. We’ll wear the sweatpants while Zooey Deschanel wears the Peter Pan collar that gets stuck in the hand dryer, got it?
After seeing last night’s New Girl, we can all agree on one thing: Zooey Deschanel dressed as a zombie is probably the cutest thing of all time. (Other than Schmidt dressed as Matthew McConaughey in Magic Mike, of course.) Jess should have just eaten Sam’s brain after *spoiler alert* he turns her down for an actual date (we were genuinely bummed out!), but at least we got an awesome episode filled with amazing costumes first. Not that any could hold a blood-covered candle to Jess’s, of course…
New Girl reached a new height of adorableness last night with an ep that focused primarily on Jess and CeCe’s sweet lady friendship, though we did have to deal with the absurdity of a world where Zooey Deschanel is considering ridiculous compared to models. Let’s be honest: Zooey Deschanel is straight-up one of the hottest ladies on the planet. Don’t believe us? Please check out the outfit she wore out the club last night. Please.
Are we right in thinking that New Girl just keeps getting better and better every week? Last night’s episode “Neighbors” introduced Jess and the gang to the new, marginally younger crowd that moved into the building: Chaz, Fife, Sutton and Brory. It wasn’t until we saw the new neighbor’s half-shirts and florescent sweatshirts that we realized how good Schmidt, Winston and Jess typically dress. (Nick doesn’t count; he’s a 30-year-old 90-year-old.) Did the new neighbors’ young people fashion looks seem dead-on to you, or did they make you roll your eyes in contempt for the New Girl wardrobe department? Were you rolling your eyes while wearing headphones and a handmade feather clip? Are you one of them?
We love that last night’s episode of New Girl revolved around Schmidt’s ridiculously preppy belt. (It also revolved around the adorable sparking chemistry between Jess and Nick, but hey, this is a photo recap.)(Though we will say, squeeeeee!) Donning the above mentioned jaunty pink sea mammal belt, Max Greenfield took a brief fashion journey into the heart of the Republican Party while pretending to be Tuggb Romney, fictional child of Mitt Romney. Clean cut, well-made and totally insane: that’s how we like our Max Greenfield. And our New Girl.
