Lunchtime Surfing: Re-Living The Golden Globes

01/19/2007 at 12:45 PM ET

Even though we were blurry-eyed after Monday night’s rapid-fire channel-surfing, live blogging, gown-dishing extravaganza, we still couldn’t get enough of the Golden Globes this week. Everywhere we clicked we found more juicy tidbits from Hollywood’s big night. For instance: Go Fug Yourself imagines what the Dreamgirls cast must have been thinking while this photo was being snapped (JENNIFER: I hope Beyonce isn’t mad at me…..). While the L.A. Time’s Elizabeth Snead points out on Style & Scene, that Jennifer’s dress (selected by Vogue-man Andre Leon Talley) was NAVY, not black. (Hmm. We must need glasses.) One of our favorite fashion voices, Cathy Horyn, doing a guest-stint at the New York Times Carpetbagger blog, mused about the red carpet jewelry, particularly, Hilary Swank’s earware (“I bet she couldn’t wait to have a good scratch”). But to really get the “fly on the red carpet” experience, read Kirsten’s blog at E! online. She describes in vivid detail what it’s like to be there in four-inch heels, freezing in a sleeveless dress while trying to catch the stars’ attention (“Brrr…I’m wearing long johns under my dress. Not doing me any good”). Sound glamorous to you?

bitter, party of one–your table is now ready beyonce!! step over! you might ‘already be a big star’, but you could learn from ms. hudson’s class and humility.

Yikes, why do all the really angry people always write on these? I’m way too easy-going for this gossip. Cheers!

Beyonce looks immature standing next to these classy actors (okay, maybe Eddie Murphy’s classiness is in quesion!) But she just seems to say “Okay, I didn’t win, but check out my rockin body”. Hey, everyone can work out – not everyone can earn a Golden Globe! She has real talent though, no denying that. But she looks silly in this picture. Everyone else looks so demure, and she looks like a cheeseball.

How is Beyonce looking childish next to those ‘classy’ actors? sure Jamie and Eddie are somebody, but Jennifer Hudson is basically a nobody, she got lucky, has a good part and had a good role. Beyonce doesn’t need to learn anything from her.

I think they all look great. Beyonce looks slightly uncomfortable, maybe even a little jealous but it could
be because people keep gossiping, and talking nasty about her. I ‘m not the biggest Beyonce fan, but people can be really judgemental and cruel. People should leave her alone.

I’m so happy for Jennifer she looks so happy standing next to Eddie I’d be a nervious wreck if i was her!

I guess the GLARING difference is simply that Beyonce is used to wearing “music artist” type outfits (think MTV Music Awards) that really don’t translate as an actresses wardrobe. Whomever is dressing Jennifer gets it. If you want to be respected as a “real” actress you have to first look the part.

Jennifer has a hope of winning that Oscar. Beyonce does not. There are some actors that will never be accepted by their peers and I hate to say it but, I think that Be might just be one of them.

Beyonce annoys me- and she has a horrible voice.

I just had to write a comment about today’s FABULOUS Fashion Faceoff! What a hoot!! Jennifer Hudson vs. Gwyneth Paltrow—I mean, THAT is surreal! (That should give Jennifer Hudson a real giggle!) The funny thing is that Jennifer Hudson actually does more for the dress than Gwyneth Paltrow. Frankly, Paltrow is always so beautifully dressed that this number makes her look somewhat matronly (OK—so she DID have another baby recently, but even so. . .), whereas Jennifer Hudson looks hot, especially when you think of how she looked in her Dreamgirl duds. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for today’s Fashion Faceoff because it was really a gas!

You poor people, Why would Beyonce be jealous of Jennifer Hudson and why would Jennifer Hudson be jealous of Beyonce. They are two positive black role models with great voices
