Envelopes, Red Carpets and Self-Loathing, Oh My!

Few things bring out the Oreo in me like Hollywood’s award season! Looking out over the crowds, you see who the image makers are, who the folks are who are getting their stories told and getting to tell stories on the regular.

And who are they? Here’s a hint: They’re not RBP. And that’s a big reason why I work so hard not to be one!

Just look at these pictures from Variety, Hollywood’s most influential daily trade.

But…just so we of colors didn’t feel left out, Variety did include this photo on page 1 today:

Yup, just when you thought we had seen the last of the RBP dude in a dress movies, they’re back!

Did you watch the Golden Globes? What did you think? What are your thoughts on the Awards Season? Let us know in the comments!


  1. Don’t really watch awards shows these days. I do enjoy the Fashion Police snarky comments after the fact though. 😀

  2. I thought that the Golden Globes this year was the best I’d ever seen. Ricky Gervais was HILARIOUS, I thought. I knew of his work in the UK where he has an extensive and diverse career. I understand that there were celebrities who got their feathers ruffled over his barbs. Gervais wasn’t saying anything that wasn’t true and British humor is definitely more snarky( I love that word!!)than American humor. I prefer him over Steve Martin or Billy Crystal any day. I’;m used to the self-deprecating, dry, sarcastic wit of the Brits as my husband is a Brit born and raised in South London. Believe me, the humor they have takes a while to get used to. If you are a sensitive person, it could very well hurt your feelings, but really, should not be taken personally. I love the fashion as well. Did you see some of the dresses??? I LOVED Leah Michelle’s pink gown–I think she had one of the best dresses there. I love Glee and I just think she’s adorable anyway:-)

  3. At Ricky Gervais’ stand-ups, when he’s joking about relgiion, he only ever jokes about Christianity, never about any other relgiion on earth. That’s why people find it offensive. Comedy is meant to be shared with everyone, not to be made offended to one group in society.
