Good Morning! It’s Friday, Friday, Friday…ha ha I had to. I hope you’re all ready for the weekend. The Critics Choice Awards kicked off the TV awards season and I have to say I wasn’t overly impressed with the fashion. I love the vintage-inspired looks, but not a lot of summer looks. I was hoping for some bright colors, patterns, etc. Here are a few I liked, not loved…thoughts?
Award Show Fashion
Hugh Jackman was the host of the Tony’s again this year and he’s the perfect mix of performer and MC. I didn’t get to finish the show, but DVR’d it and can’t wait to see the rest. I’m dying to see Aladdin and hope it makes its way to us in LA, and A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder looks fabulous. Before the show, the stars were out in full force. Take a look at some of my favorite fashions from the night.
So any shows you’re dying to see this summer?

It’s finally here–the biggest day in Hollywood. The Oscars are happening as I write this and we’ve already seen the stars arrive. I noticed a lot of light colors and lovely, classic beading. My favorite look by far though? Lupita Nyong’o looked stunning in the light blue frock that was the perfect color for her gorgeous skin. Enjoy the show!
The BAFTA (The British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards are a pretty good indicator of who will win the upcoming Oscars, but more important than that of course is the red carpet fashion right? The fashion appeared a bit more casual and muted, with the exception of Lily Allen of course. Love the color of her gown. Brad and Angelina get my vote for best-dressed couple. Agree?
Awards season continues with the Screen Actors Guild Awards tonight. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the red carpet.

It that time again…time for award show season. That means some really great (hopefully) fashion for us all to drool over. The Golden Globes are heading our way this Sunday. Will you be watching? If so, watch for some behind the scenes drama. In the meantime, here’s a small dose to get you in the mood, courtesy of Yahoo movies.
1. Jodie Foster’s Special Speech Was No Surprise
When Foster won her Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement at last year’s show and gave her much buzzed about speech (where she kinda sorta officially came out of the closet and rambled on at length), Adelman confirms he was not caught off guard. “She had notes,” he says, explaining that keeping up with the teleprompter wasn’t an issue. “Jodie actually had some things that she wanted to say, she had planned,” he said. Still, he didn’t know exactly how all of it was going to play out. “I sat back there [during the show] and said, ‘Wow, let’s see where this is going.'”
2. Star Relationships Start and Stop at the Globes
While he won’t name names, Adelman says a lot of actors tend to get cozy at Globes — and often a serious relationship will result. (Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, for example, are rumored to have started up their love connection at the Globes.) Perhaps it’s due to that special mix of booze and glamor. “Conversely there have been nights where couples have broken up and it was the last time they were ever seen together in public,” he says. Hmm, could he be talking about Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber?
3. Elizabeth Taylor Disaster Averted
The late Taylor nearly read a winner at the 2001 show before it was time. You see, she forgot to list out the nominees first in the Best Motion Picture – Drama category. “She grew up in the business, she’s been going to awards shows since she was a child basically,” Adelman observes, “but somehow when she got out there, she opened the envelope with out reading the nominees. She started to say ‘and the winner is’ and people in the front row started yelling ‘No no no!’ At that moment I raced to the stage… Just before I got there Dick Clark had beat me to it,” Adelman recalls, saying Clark (who has since died) stopped Taylor before she blurted out the winner, which was, by the way, “Gladiator.”
4. Vanity and the Teleprompter
Sometimes stars request for the text size on the teleprompter to increase, Adelman says. “If they’re vain and they haven’t brought their glasses it’s almost impossible to make it as big as it needs to be,” he reveals, pointing out that those demands are relatively rare.
5. Jack Nicholson’s Show Habits Revealed
“There’s no one happier to see someone win,” Adelman says of Nicholson. “There’s no envy or jealousy in him.” Nicholson likes to hang out with the producers at certain points in the show, he says. He watches the monitors backstage, often laughing, applauding, and genuinely enjoying every moment.
6. Lauren Bacall’s Bewildering Wine Request
The onetime screen siren took Adelman by surprise when she wandered backstage asking for him. “Of course, she is a legend — Dick Clark looked at me too, like, ‘Wow, Lauren Bacall is asking for you by name.’ I jumped up and I said, ‘Oh Ms. Bacall, what can I do for you? And she said, ‘I need more wine at table 12.'” It wasn’t his job. Still, Adelman fulfilled her request.
7. Tip: Don’t Miss the Top of the Show!
Adelman wouldn’t reveal much about Sunday’s upcoming show hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but he did emphasize that the top of the show is not to be missed. “It’s the most star-studded six-to-eight minutes of TV anyone could see.”
8. Let the Censors Do Their Job
“We certainly don’t like to censor anybody,” Adelman says, explaining that he let’s NBC’s standards and practices unit sweat it out. “They have delay. That takes away a lot of the tension off that. Almost everybody who comes in is professional… But we do get surprised. There’s no question — you get surprised.”
9. Bare Booties
Jim Carrey and Jack Nicholson have both mooned the Globes audience at different times. “We try to make it a party,” Adelman says, noting the Globes have been fast and loose since the ’60s — when Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack would storm the stage with drinks in hand and take over the show.
10. Touching Act of Kindness
When Ving Rhames won a Globe in 1998, he wound up giving it to fellow nominee Jack Lemmon. “He was so surprised to win and such an admirer of Jack Lemmon that he called him up and gave him the award,” recalls Adelman. “That was a very memorable unscripted moment.”
11. Constant Surprises
You never know what people are going to say, he points out, saying he’s often as surprised as the television viewing audience. “Brad Pitt got up there one time when he won and said, ‘I want to thank the makers of Kaopectate for getting me through tonight.'”
