Golden Globes 2010 Highlights
The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Ricky Gervais, were held last night at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. A little rain didn't stop the party and the stars walked the red carpet
in their couture dresses, bling and umbrellas. The devastating earthquake in Haiti was a big topic of conversation on the red carpet as stars wore red ribbons in support and talked about their donation efforts.
Silver, purple, gray and glittery dresses dominated the carpet as the stars filtered into the awards. Lead Actress nominee Sandra Bullock looked amazing in a sheer purple strapless dress, Olivia Wilde from House looked stunning in Gucci, Christina Hendricks from Mad Men looked buxom and beautiful in a champagne colored strapless dress, and cute couple Emily Blunt from The Young Victoria and fiancé John Krasinski from The Office looked adorable together. Chace Crawford from Gossip Girl looked fabulous in Dolce and Gabbana, Cory Monteith from Glee looked dapper in his suit and silver tie. Quentin Tarantino said he combined an American tuxedo and a Japanese tuxedo to create his suit, which will probably land him on the worst dressed list right next to Julianne Moore and Tina Fey who looked like Mary Poppins.
Ricky Gervais started the night off poking fun at Steve Carell, who plays his role in the American version of The Office. He made fun of NBC and said the station may replace him as the host if he didn't hurry up. Miss Golden Globe 2010 was Alfrie Woodard and Roderick Spencer's daughter Mavis Spencer.
