Critics’ Choice Awards: The Best and Worst of the Rest


Thanks to technical difficulties, we didn’t get through as much stuff as we wanted to this last week. And so, a special GFY Saturday post that clears out the detritus from our lightboxes as we make way for the Golden Globes on Sunday. Big fun, y’all.

Critics’ Choice Awards Fug Carpet: Leslie Mann


Usually, I really like Leslie Mann’s dresses that have an unusual twist.

But this is like the throw-pillow version of what Lea Michele just wore to the People’s Choice Awards, and worse, it looks absurd on Leslie — I mean, on Elle Fanning, I think we’d have something to discuss, but as beautiful as Ms. Mann is… Your movie was called This Is 40, not This Is 14.

Critics’ Choice Awards Fug Carpet: Eva Longoria


As we have learned from almost a decade of Desperate Housewives, Eva Longoria has an awesome body. Yet you’d never know it in this.

But worse, this dress is somewhat startling to me. That decoration there… you guys may think this is insane, but to me it’s faintly anatomical. It’s evocative of… well, a ladyplace. It’s high fashion labial folds. It’s a sartorial pap smear. She is a growling, crazy-eyed walking vagina right now, and that is really not a sentence I ever expected to type except maybe as part of a review of some new Guillermo Del Toro movie called Pan’s Labiarinth.

Critics’ Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Amy Adams


This one is all about the angles for me.

From here, I love it — the color of the skirt is great, the slit is high enough to be sexy but not so high that it’s pubic, and I thought the top might have some interesting asymmetry going for it. But then I finally found a photo of Amy facing forward, and now I can’t decide:

Critics’ Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Naomi Watts


If we haven’t seen this exact dress before, then we’ve certainly seen its component parts.

However, after two kids and forty-four years on this Earth, I am deeply impressed and envious that her boobs look that terrific. If it’s genetics, then she won the lottery even more than I had realized; if it’s sorcery, then sign me up for witchcraft classes. Their impresssive anti-gravity qualities and her awesome face and hair are saving what might otherwise be a forgettable enterprise.

Or is it?

Critics’ Choice Awards Well Played: Anne Hathaway


After all of Anne’s theatrics during the Les Miserables junkets, I think this was a really smart pick:

At first I wsn’t sure if the sternum region was as flattering to her as it could be, but actually, this sucker is slinky and shimmery and sexy and gorgeous without needing to tack on a cape or any boots that may or may not once have been seen in a sex swing. Simplicity is refreshing every once in a while. Also, this might mean she’s just lulling us into submission for something REALLY INSANE at the Golden Globes, and that is in fact my fondest hope. I’m rooting for her to wear the actual sex swing this time. While we wait, though, I’m perfectly happy gazing at how long and willowy and trim she looks in this, and wondering if I have the strength to give up bread. (I don’t. It will be a short conversation with myself.)
