Fug File: Golden Globes

Golden Globes Fugs and Fabs: Reds and Pinks


I’ve heard June Squibb is hilarious and great in Nebraska, and I’m looking forward to seeing it someday when I am not drowning in all the typing I need to do. So, next August, optimistically.

Golden Globes Mostly Well Played, Amber Heard, With Bonus Johnny Depp


Or at least, extra Johnny Depp. “Bonus” implies you’re going to like it, and I’m not sure how accurate that is.

Golden Globes Fugs and Fabs: Black-and-White Gowns


It’s a shame these two are so hideous and not at all genetically blessed.

Golden Globes Fug Carpet: Edie Falco


I had a really weird brain fart the other day in which I read “Edie Falco” was nominated for Nurse Jackie, and my brain responded, “I didn’t know Edie McClurg was on Nurse Jackie!” Strange, but at least it sent me down a pleasant rabbit hole of imagining other successful TV shows if you replaced the lead with Edie McClurg (if you are a whippersnapper, catch her work as Ed Rooney’s secretary in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, please). Imagine her trying to fight demons with Ichabod Crane on Sleepy Hollow, telling him that some poor souls all adore the Headless Horseman and think he’s “a righteous dude.” Or she could pop by Reign and mutter that Mary, Queen of Scots, is “such a little a**hole.” Hart of Dixie always needs reception help at Brick’s clinic. And let’s not forget how important she could be on Game of Thrones. I want this to happen. The Edie McClurg revolution must be televised.

But I guess we’re here to talk Falco:

After wearing this, she may ALSO wish Edie McClurg had taken her place.

Golden Globes Fug or Fab: Hailee Steinfeld


I’m looking forward to the day La Steinfeld returns to the shows as a nominee. In the meantime:

This makes me nuts. Someone went to all that trouble to make a dress that was at least trying something, even if part of that involved popped shoulder seams… and then they crapped out at the knees. STOP CRAPPING OUT AT THE KNEES. FINISH WHAT YOU START.

Ahem. Okay. I’ve collected myself. Let us now consider her other outfit from the weekend, which does not crap out at the knees. Instead, it is properly hemmed there:

Golden Globes Well Played: Ashley Madekwe


Ashley Madekwe is lucky her character on Revenge was such a hot professional mess, because that show is a grim professional mess and at this point I think it’s better for everyone involved to be out of there — except for Gabriel Mann and Justin Hartley, who are doing that thing where they somehow rise above the morass and it makes them look even better.

However, SHE has NEVER looked better. I love the bright colors and the mod design — it’s more inventive than most, it’s definitely ballsy, and she handled the hair and makeup well because they aren’t washed out, but they both take a backseat to her glowy, glowy skin.  Sometimes the best revenge may, in fact, be no longer being on Revenge.
