Absolutely everyone looked FABULOUS at this year’s Golden Globe Awards held Sunday, January 15, 2012, at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA. Some stars took to the Red Carpet solo, while some of Hollywood’s Power Couples posed together. It must be a lot of pressure to have to look so good knowing there is Paparazzi everywhere, but these Stars make it look like a walk in the Park.
The gowns worn by the women ranged in style and color with perhaps the most notable statement being made by Maria Menounos in a body-hugging bright yellow sequined gown. Lea Michele was another one to watch in a sophisticated and sexy shimmery grey number. The Men, well what can I say, they all wore the basic black suit & tie well (with a variation here and there – Gervais).
The Globes, hosted this year by Ricky Gervais (reason alone to tune in) treated fans and Celebs alike to a night of fun and humor. The Golden Globe, awarded by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which honors achievement in both Film and Television has a rich history and is well respected by those in Hollywood since its inception in 1943.
Notable stars present included a special appearance by Johnny Depp and music icon Madonna (who won Best Original Song in A Motion Picture). George Clooney won Best Performance by an Actor for his performance in “The Descendants”, Christopher Plummer won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in “Beginners” and “The Descendants” took home Best Motion Picture. This year’s winner for a Lifetime of Achievement (The Cecil B. DeMille Award) was presented to actor Morgan Freeman.
