Who cares who takes home the actual Golden Globe trophy? We all know Sunday night is won or lost on the red carpet, unless somebody gets hammered and delivers a droolingly blurry acceptance speech, in which case that is a victory for us all. So, because the Friday before a major awards-show weekend PARTICULARLY demands procrastinatory material, we are ponying up for you: We’re going to take a look at all the female-oriented categories at the Golden Globes (dresses are the most fun to dissect), and see if we can predict which female nominee in each will be the best- and worst-dressed of her group — done via slideshows either of recent outfits, past awards-show gowns, or both. For instance, La Hathaway up there last appeared at the Globes in 2008 wearing that navy number; I’ll bet she does something lighter and sunnier this year. Conversely, the only certainty with Annette Bening is that she will wear Warren Beatty in her foreground. (Seriously, look at the pictures. It’s true.)
What do you think? Vote it up in the polls and prognosticate yourselves silly in the comments. Got a dress you want them to wear? Post the link. Got a style you want someone to avoid? Tell us all about it. Think Angelina Jolie was a nonsense nominee? We hear you; let it all out.
