Emily Blunt's Golden Globe Dress Dilemma: Safe or Brave?

Emily Blunt may be a buttoned-up Queen Victoria on screen, but she is a true Hollywood siren when she hits the red carpet, as evidenced by her glamorous appearance at yesterday’s BAFTA/LA Awards Season Tea Party. Clad in a sexy cobalt blue Carolina Herrera sheath, Blunt dished to PEOPLE on her Golden Globe Awards plans, including with a luxurious start to her day. “I’m going to lie in and have a long lie, and I’m going to stay in bed until about twelve. I like it for people to come over early, like hair and makeup, and just start early. And lots of coffee, lots of croissants. That kind of thing.” But just because she knows how her day is going to start, doesn’t mean she knows exactly which gown she’ll be wearing. She teases, “It’s a toss-up right now. I’m going to surprise you.” As for how she decides between her two options (“a brave one and a safe one”), she explains “I think you try it on, you ask different opinions, people that you trust. It also depends if I’m interesting and brave or not that day.” One person in her life who won’t tell her what to wear is her fiancé John Krasinski, whom she says is “very good. He always lets me have my own [opinion].” We’re sure both options will look amazing! Make sure to check back on PEOPLE.com starting at 6 pm tonight for all the Golden Globe Awards coverage, including a live chat. –reporting by Scott Huver

Well, if it makes you feel any better “Ann!” it looks like Julia Roberts didn’t wash her hair for a few days to show her empathy! LOLOLOL!

Why do people insist on bringing the Haiti earthquake into every discussion? What does that have to do with ANYTHING? Man, you’ve completely blown our minds with your sense of perspective, I can’t believe I never realized that this stuff is trivial. Except, hm, it seems like if you actually didn’t care about anything that’s not the Haiti earthquake you wouldn’t be reading all these stories about things that aren’t the Haiti earthquake. You’ve been found out.

I dunno, but BLUNT made a HUGE MISTAKE by getting veneers. Totally ruined her face!

Just for some perspective: Risking disease and violence to treat earthquake victims in Haiti is “brave”. Fighting wildfires in California is “brave”. Serving your country in Afghanistan is “brave”. Wearing a dress to an awards ceremony that might reveal too much skin to a nation already oversaturated with nudity while fawning sycophants tell you how beautiful you look and listening to other fawning sycophants gush about each other’s second-rate ripoffs of real art, is not “brave”. Must we water down and obscure the meaning of every word in the English language to the point where it becomes functionally unusable?

Seriously, if this is the biggest problem a person faces in their life, she ought to get down on her knees every night and thank God she doesn’t have to hold down a real job.
