While Papoose and Remy Ma have been the embodiment of Black love for quite some time for some reason we haven’t gotten many collaborations between the two rappers. But today that changes thanks to the birth of their newborn baby.

City Girls meanwhile head down to South Beach where they link up with Cardi B and throw a booty shaking contest so intense it could’ve caused a tsunami had they all done it in the water for the visual to “Twerk.”

The stars came out for the 76th annual Golden Globes ceremony last night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, and all eyes were on the red carpet to see who pulled off the best looks. And they didn’t disappoint: Celebs turned out with classic outfits, daring ensembles, and yes, even a few questionable sartorial choices. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of the best dressed men from the 2019 red carpet. Looking to amp up your style game this year? Take some cues from these guys.
Supporting his wife Emily Blunt for her best actress in a musical or comedy nomination, Krasinski stood out in a sea of black suits with his dark navy ensemble. His Christian Louboutin shoes and matching black bow tie (sometimes black and navy do go together) added elegance to his red carpet style. If you’re getting tired of trotting out your same old black suit, take a tip from Krasinski and opt for navy blue instead.
It seems like Bradley Cooper can do anything—write, direct, act, and even pull off an all-white suit. Looking like the complete opposite of the rough-around-the edges musician he played in A Star is Born, the clean-shaven nominee stood out on the red carpet. If you’re considering a similar outfit, take note: His black shoes and bow tie keep him from looking like a polar bear.
The Black Panther himself rocked a custom patterned silver tux designed by Versace. His stylist Ashley Weston described the look as “a work of art”—and we agree.
Idris Elba arrived on the Golden Globes carpet in a patterned turquoise suit with shoes to match. Although he walked the carpet with his jacket unbuttoned and no tie in sight, the rumored next James Bond tidied up his look once he stepped onstage to present an award.
Although he’ll always be the King in The North in our hearts, Richard Madden took home the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama for his performance in Bodyguard. He strode down the red carpet in a classy black velvet suit—a great example of how to use different materials, rather than colors, to stand out from the crowd.
Walking the red carpet with his Black Panther co-stars in tow, Michael B. Jordan showed how to use accessories to update a classic look for the modern era: He rocked a black double-breasted Burberry tuxedo, and his diamond-studded lapel pin and Piaget watch made the perfect complements to his jacket. The on-screen villain definitely looked like one of the good guys at last night’s award show.
Christian Bale’s various body transformations throughout the years may have been surprising, but fans were also shocked to hear his Welsh accent onstage at the Golden Globes (where he thanked Satan for inspiring his performance as Dick Cheney). On the red carpet, the Vice star proved that a little color coordination goes a long way—his sleek all-black suit and tie combo worked perfectly with his wife’s black dress.
Tyler Perry said it best at the 76th annual Golden Globes when he confessed the celebs in the room were just as drunk as they seem on TV — and the pics of them partying are even more proof. Okay, no one’s puking at their table … but people like…
After Time’s Up and #MeToo, and two years of award shows heavy on political messages, the Golden Globes veered toward more comfortable territory for Hollywood — namely, patting itself on the back, while relying on the winners’ passion, not the hosts, to carry a show that was alternately boring, shocking, sentimental and just plain silly.
As award shows go, the Golden Globes usually isn’t much of a trailblazer. In hindsight, though, the 2017 edition of the event — and Meryl Streep’s appearance in particular — set the prickly tone for the relationship between President Trump and the entertainment industry, and the template for award telecasts that followed.

“Black Panther” is looking like the answer to Hollywood’s prayers as the industry embarks on awards season, adding blockbuster sizzle to an annual ritual that has been reluctant to acknowledge its costume-clad box-office stars.

Love was definitely in the air at 2018 Golden Globes host Seth Meyers’ afterparty at Poppy nightclub! Mariah Carey’s boyfriend Bryan Tanaka showered her with his undivided attention, while Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel only had eyes for each other as they danced the night away. Get all of the insider details!
Instead of the colorful tuxedos and colorful gowns weâve seen on the red carpets of award shows past, most of the stars who attended the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday night wore basic black. The color, seen on the backs of everyone from host Seth Meyers to award winners Sterling K. Brown and Alexander Skarsgard, was chosen in support of Timeâs Up, an organization working to end workplace sexual harassment and abuse across industries. Hollywood, which in 2017 saw many of its most famous and powerful men rocked by allegations of these abuses, took the opportunity of this highly visible show to stand with the victims and call for an end to the culture made their suffering possible. Below, the ten best-dressed guys at the show.

Founded in 2000, Italy’s Golden Goose Deluxe Brand has more recently been growing within the U.S. For pre-fall 2018, the brand designed a ready-to-wear and shoe collection around a fictitious woman who fantasized about stories of her grandfather, should she have ever met him. Notes from the designers claimed the collection, “is an ode to real imagination and imagined realities.” Vintage references ran throughout; there was Forties-inspired suiting, like a lilac set or striped trouser, along with multiple trenchcoats with full gun flap and box pleats. Men’s wear references and the reemergence of the brand’s original cowboy boots were also strong throughout. A mismatch of graphics — celestial, collegiate, tropical scenes, logos and floral prints — could have been pared down to make the whole idea more concise.
Gal Gadot and Halle Berry are among the stars who have been tapped to present at the Golden Globes 2018 awards show on Jan. 7. Among the other marquee names revealed in the first wave of presenters are five-time Golden Globe winner and 17-time nominee Carol Burnett, Penélope Cruz, Chris Hemsworth, Sharon Stone, Darren Criss, Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grant and Neil Patrick Harris.
Also in the mix are Greta Gerwig, whose directorial debut “Lady Bird” was recognized with a Best Leading Actress nod for star Saoirse Ronan; “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks; last year’s Best Leading Actress winner Isabelle Huppert, and screen legend Shirley MacLaine, who ties Burnett with five Golden Globes and who last year received the Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient.
Singers Kelly Clarkson and Ricky Martin also will appear on the show, as will fan favorites Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen and Kerry Washington. Unlike the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which take place on Jan. 21, the 75th annual Golden Globes, which are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, have tapped male presenters as well instead of only female ones. But the recent sexual harassment scandals and the #MeToo movement will be felt at the

A family member told detectives that Lowell Hawthorne, 57, admitted the huge tax debt to some of his relatives, and was “acting funny” and “talking to himself” in the hours before his suicide, a law enforcement source said Sunday.
Surveillance video shows the meat-pie mogul shooting himself in the head at his office inside the Golden Krust bakery and warehouse in the Bronx, said the source, who was briefed on the NYPD investigation into the shooting.
Before the shooting, the video shows Hawthorne speaking with a pair of workers who left the room, both of whom were crouched down when they later returned to his office, sources said.
Reportedly, Hawthorne left a note apologizing to his family, many of whom were in his employ.
Unfortunately, now the family will have to pick up the pieces.

In a new remix of Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” Nerd Fest UK shows just how well the catchy single pairs with nearly 66 films from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Nerd Fest UK explained that the video was inspired by a mashup that came out earlier this year, which paired 100 movie scenes with the same Bruno Mars song. According to the clip description, not a single dance move or scene is sped up or slowed down.
With the 2015 single in the background, this mashup perfectly pairs the music with the moves of Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gene Kelly.

THE GOLDEN TICKET: To add another dimension to its upcoming exhibition “Philippine Gold: Treasures of Forgotten Kingdoms,” Asia Society will spotlight an assortment of Filipino designers in its Upper East Side lobby in Manhattan. Jewelry designer and gallery owner Federico De Vera dreamed up the latter, which will be billed as “Filipino Design Now” and launches on Sept. 11.

GOLDEN GIRL: With five gold medals and three World Records at the Fédération internationale de natation World Championships, Katie Ledecky has stamped herself as a huge favorite heading into next year’s Olympic Games.
She swept the 200-, 400-, 800- and 1,500-meter freestyle competitions in Kazan, Russia, in addition to anchoring the victorious 4 x 200-meter free relay. The 18-year-old American is 9-0 in finals at FINA World Championships, having won four golds and set two world records in 2013 at Barcelona.
Without question, Ledecky’s clean sweep at last week’s FINA World Championships made her the sport’s brightest star. But as an amateur athlete, the 18-year-old’s rewards were solely congratulatory.
The Bethesda, Md., swimmer smashed two of her own world records, in the 800- and 1,500-meter freestyle events, helping her cinch FINA’s Female Swimmer of the Meet title.
While her fellow 2012 Olympian and U.S. team national member Missy Franklin cut her collegiate career short to turn pro in March and signed a deal with Speedo in June, Ledecky is sticking with the amateurs. The recent high school grad is headed for Stanford University this fall. Ledecky wore Speedo competing at the world championships in Kazan. But aside from countless well wishes, Ledecky was out

Golden State forward Andre Iguodala was named MVP of the NBA Finals following the Warriors’ 105-97 clinching win Tuesday night, becoming the first player to garner the honor without starting every game.
It also marks the first time the Finals MVP has shared a team with the regular-season MVP (Stephen Curry) since Magic Johnson claimed the Finals honor in 1980 while playing on a Los Angeles Lakers squad with regular-season MVP Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Their 40-year NBA championship drought is finally over.
A half century of misery in Cleveland drags on. LeBron James just didn’t have enough help.
World champs,” Curry said, letting the title sink in. “This is truly special. This group is a special group. From the time we started the season this is what we envisioned and a lot of hard work goes into it, all the way down to the last minute of this game. This is what it’s all about. … We’re going to remember this for a long time.”
James returned from Miami to deliver a title to his home region, but the 30-year-old, left to do most of the work by himself after All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love were injured in the postseason, came two wins shy of giving Cleveland its first pro sports championship since 1964.
They city’s three pro teams — the Cavs, Browns and Indians — have gone a combined 144 seasons without one of them winning it all.
James had 32 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists in Game 6 and was dominant during the series, showing why he’s the world’s best player.
The Warriors were simply the better team.
Sometimes that’s just how the ball bounces. Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors!

If you follow Meek Mill on Instagram, you know very well he’s paid in full. With his new school sensibilities and Spike Jordan’s nostalgic direction, a beautiful master plan video for “Monster” has been born.
After strategically dropping track since his release from jail last December, it appears Philly’s MMG lieutenant is finally revved up and ready to make those Dreams Worth More Than Money an official reality. He recently paid homage to the slain Chinx and measured his weight up next to Drake’s and the “Monster” video proves he’s just having fun with it.
The scenery takes us into late 80s when Hip-Hop was automatically fresh and exciting and all the Big Willies donned Kangol hats, Gazelle frames and enough gold to make King Tut insecure. Milly invites viewers into the roller skate, complete with plenty of product placement from Monster 24KT headphones, Monster Energy and his homeboy Diddy’s Cîroc collection.
I just saw Monday March 30th’s edition of the ongoing series Broadway By The Year and I’m already penciling in (make that inking in) the next two nights, which take place on Monday May 11 and Monday June 22. Where else can you see two dozen legends, hot stars and rising talent for about $ 50? I’m not a big cabaret goer and this show — which mixes Broadway talent with cabaret stars — reminds me of what I’m missing. And the next edition includes names like Patrick Page and the brilliant Bobby Steggert, among many others. It’s always crowded but if you jump you can get tickets. I only wish there were more young theatergoers in the audience: it’s the most enjoyable musical theater history lesson in town.
The conceit is simple: each night of Broadway By The Year focuses on 25 years of Broadway, tackling at least one song from a show that premiered each year. Sometimes it’s a world famous standard, other times a little known gem or just a silly throw-away that’s fun to do. You get to hear how musicals developed, catch some great rising talent and enjoy some favorites given fresh life. It’s the linchpin of producer, creator and host Scott Siegel’s empire of musical theater events both at Town Hall and throughout the city.
The night proper kicked off very promisingly with Beth Leavel growling and kicking and having a blast on “Blues In The Night.” I remembered it was written for the movies, but only hardcore theater buffs probably knew the song was so popular it was highlighted later in a Broadway revue called Priorities Of 1942. That’s the sort of trivia Siegel sprinkles throughout in his brisk introductions. He’ll offer up a nugget and then end with, “…and that show was My Fair Lady,” which invariably sends a ripple of pleasure through the audience. Happily, he now only calls for an encore bow when the applause demands it; the tight intros and no fake second bows keep the evening at an enjoyable 150 minutes.
Every edition has its own character and this one was dominated by comedy. John Bolton emphasized the worldwide popularity of Oklahoma by singing the title song in German and Japanese. Julia Murney and Ben Davis (who was great on Broadway in Violet) each did solo numbers but they really shone on “There Once Was A Man” from The Pajama Game, with Murney showing off her comic chops. Rising cabaret star Molly Pope was a pistol doing an unplugged version of “Too Darn Hot” from Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate. She’s one of the talents you spot during these revues like this and make a point of going to see them in their own shows, soon.
The last time we saw Jeremy Morse, he was preparing to tackle How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Here the appealing Morse returned with a razor sharp take on “I Believe In You” that makes you sorry you missed him. His only failing seems to be that he’s a Phillies fan. (Though it could have been worse; he could have been a Boston fan.) And again, someone should do a musical about Mickey Rooney and Morse should star in it. Or at least a revival of Babes In Arms. Steve Rosen was also fun in the goofy “Don Jose (Of Far Rockway).” It really was a silly evening, all in all.
Her comic timing was exquisite and KT Sullivan looked ready to step right back into a revival of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which she delighted in almost exactly 20 years ago to the day on Broadway. That sense of theater history coming alive is one of the pleasures of the show, with Sullivan reprising one of her big career moments, linking today back to her revival in 1995 back to the original Gentlemen Prefer Blondes starring Carol Channing way, way back in 1949. Channing also came alive via Lee Roy Reams, who was in one revival of Hello, Dolly! and directed Channing in her last (of many) revivals of that show, coincidentally also in 1995. Reams knows the show inside out and his palpable pleasure at putting over a medley of tunes from it was a nostalgia fest in and of itself.
He was proof that hitting all the notes perfectly isn’t how artistry happens, though of course knowing how to use the voice you’re working with on any given night is key to a good performance and career longevity. Lari White had a rough night on “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel. Hey, it ain’t easy, and stumbles for various reasons (health, not enough time to rehearse amidst a busy schedule, a changing voice) are inevitable in a show like this done for love not money by all the performers. Only fools think auto-tuned and dull perfection on TV shows like Glee are the standard to expect.
And it doesn’t always matter. The handsome leading man Ryan Silverman (who has an old school Broadway voice and starred recently in Side Show) charmed in a duet from West Side Story then held the stage and filled the hall with ease on the show’s finale “On A Clear Day You Can See Forever.” He just missed that last big note (and the one before let you knew it wouldn’t be easy) but that didn’t detract at all from his warm presence and complete command of the song and the audience.
Still, the moments of perfection shine all the brighter. Jenna Dallacco is one of the talents handpicked by Siegel during his annual “stars of tomorrow” showcases. The best often perform as the Broadway By The Year chorus, which had the curtain raiser tonight with “We Did It Before,” a good example of an interesting number keyed to WW II that you’d never hear anyone perform these days but was fun to check out. Many go on to careers in theater and cabaret and here was Dallacco returning for her solo debut at Town Hall and this event. She did “Small World” from Gypsy with conviction and ease. You’d easily confuse her control and song-first approach to the material with the great Liz Callaway. That star delivered a delicate, moving version of “Look To The Rainbow” from Finian’s Rainbow that was a master class in serving the song. It’s one of those moments that makes Broadway By The Year worth returning to again and again.
Hey, if Shakespeare couldn’t make up his mind what to call this romance, why should Bedlam Theatre decide how to perform it? In a clever decision, Bedlam is offering up two spins on the same tale, both performed by the same cast on succeeding days. Some actors play the same roles in radically different styles; others play different roles from one night to the next. Mind you, in these trim, playful adaptations (both running two hours or less), pretty much everyone seems to be playing everyone else if only for a moment or two. Shakespeare is famed for his cross-dressing heroines and characters donning disguises; Bedlam doubles down on that with glee.
Have you heard of Bedlam? If you’re a theater-goer in New York City, almost assuredly. They’re the theater company du jour and deservedly so. I missed their break-through production of Hamlet alongside Saint Joan but they’ve continued that run and that approach. They’re a company of actors tackling two classics at once in repertory: last time it was a delightful Sense & Sensibility along with a solid Seagull; today it’s Twelfth Night and…Twelfth Night.
I was under the impression that the two productions would contrast more dramatically, with one lighter and one darker. Not so; both are essentially larks, though unquestionably there are differences to be noted. Some things, however, remain constant. The five member cast is excellent. The direction by Eric Tucker (who also performs) is sharp and rewarding. The laughs are plentiful.
Great fun can be had by attending both versions; indeed, a repertory company revels in having actors tackle different roles in succeeding shows so watching them tackle the same role differently is a rare pleasure. I’d recommend a few days or at most a week between performances (though I saw them on consecutive days quite happily.) Nonetheless, Twelfth Night is solid but What You Will is the more assured and effective version.
You can bring along your own edition of the First Folio to try and follow along, but it’s not necessary. Both versions tell the tale of identical twin siblings, a brother and a sister separated at sea in a disastrous shipwreck. Both Sebastian and Viola — as alike as two peas in a pod — imagine the other is dead. Viola, as Shakespeare’s romantic heroines are wont to do, dons male attire and becomes the much appreciated aide to Duke Orsino. He is wooing — or attempting to woo — the lovely Olivia. (Even Viola and Olivia are playfully similar names, aren’t they?) Viola as his manservant is sent to woo in the count’s stead and Olivia finds herself passionately drawn to this comely youth. (Indeed, the Duke Orsino must admit he’s unreasonably attached to the lad as well.) Meanwhile, Olivia’s drunken uncle Toby Belch and his friends pull increasingly cruel pranks on the priggish steward Malvolio. When Sebastian shows up, everyone is thoroughly discombobulated until true love finds its mark.
Shakespeare always has fun with gender bending, but Bedlam takes it to a new level here. Women are playing men who play women who play men. Men play women who play men who play women. Everyone falls in love with everyone and it’s all tremendous fun. Sometimes too much fun. Tucker’s What You Will is the better version because it feels more focused on character. The Twelfth Night version is wackier and the hi-jinks sometimes seem to take place for their own sake. It savors the nuttiness of actors switching roles to a fault, with one high point featuring the actors tossing around hats and other props as they madly switch from one role to another. Toss in some puppetry and other devices and you’ve got a free-for-all. It’s energetic and fun but not as emotionally rewarding and no more laugh-inducing than the other.
Tucker’s meta-concept for Twelfth Night is less rewarding than the more focused work on What You Will. Here, everything from the setting (which begins and ends under a plastic tarp evoking the sea) to the character switches feel of a piece. The cast is clothed in creamy white and beige colors (courtesy of costume designer Valérie Thèrése Bart) that evoke a certain aristocratic privilege without tying the story down to a particular time period. Color runs riot and while I’m not sure why the blood red paint became increasingly prominent (this is not a bloody play) it felt purposeful and I went with it.
The music is strong throughout. Excellent Americana-style tunes performed by the cast filled Twelfth Night while recordings of classics by Billie Holiday and others proved very effective in What You Will.
I was crazy about Tucker and especially Andrus Nichols in Sense & Sensibility (she played the lead there); it was one of my favorite shows of 2014. They both shine again here, with Tucker a marvel at drawing laughs out of a snort or askance look as he exits the stage. It puts me in mind of Mark Rylance and there is no higher praise than that, especially for an actor/director/company leader like Tucker. Susannah Millonzi was also very strong in the dual roles of the dimwitted suitor Sir Andrew Aguecheek and a deadpan take on Olivia’s gentlewoman Maria.
But this time I fell hard for the talents of Edmund Lewis and Tom O’Keefe. Lewis of course played many roles, but his most notable work was as two very different and very satisfying takes on Malvolio. The butt of jokes in Shakespeare’s plays are not often characters I find very interesting. But Malvolio has a storied history among great actors. Ian Holm reportedly tackled him many times, and others who assayed it include Simon Russell Beale, Patrick Stewart, Derek Jacobi and Stephen Fry in the glorious edition that played on Broadway in 2013/14. Heady company indeed.
Lewis proved why the part is so tempting, despite its secondary status; he found depths of feeling and complexity in this stock villain, along with the humor that is so natural to it. I really have a problem with Shakespeare here. Malvolio’s sins (essentially, telling the drunken Belch and the rest to stop making a racket at one in the morning) are very modest while the genuine cruelty they engender is way out of proportion. I was hoping this production would cut or minimize that cruelty. It didn’t, nor did it solve the problem of this imbalance. But the staging in What You Will was excellent — the torture was evoked perfectly simply by having one actor twirl a light bulb on a long cord to light the scene on an otherwise darkened stage. And Lewis made the discomfort real enough to satisfyingly unsettle the final, otherwise romantic finale.
O’Keefe was equally appealing and charming while tackling the jester Feste and the long-lost brother Sebastian (and Sebastian’s sister and Cesario and more — it’s that kind of double bill). His singing and playing of tunes in Twelfth Night (he did the musical composition along with Ted Lewis) was very winning. And his Feste was a marvel. The Twelfth Night version of Feste was winningly sly and sexy, to the point where one wondered why Olivia didn’t fall for him. The What You Will Feste was childlike without ever condescending. And his Sebastian was soulful, somehow letting you believe he fell immediately in love and would indeed get married at the drop of a hat. As with all the actors involved, I can’t wait to see him again.
On a bare bones budget, the cast and technical team deliver satisfying entertainment. The Twelfth Night take revels in those frantic, all-aboard changes of characters with actors swapping parts almost mid-sentence. The What You Will version is highlighted by showing one actor play two characters at the same time, such as when O’Keefe had Feste accosting Sebastian to great effect. Both are worth your time.
Bedlam clearly deserves arts funding and its own space and a long-running hit (how I yearn to see their Sense & Sensibility again) and a long, long life. Rylance had his Globe. Anyone up for providing them their signature space?

Of course, people food is not for dogs, and can be dangerous to their health. But fortunately for Fritz, Ball assured The Huffington Post that the pup isn’t fed everything he’s thrown, nor is he living “off donuts and chimichangas.”
“I actually intercept most of the food and give him just a little for his efforts. Plus, he only gets a food tossed to him about once a week,” Ball said via email. “The rest of the time he eats healthy dog food and gets regular exercise. He’s actually quite a specimen.”
Ball added that it’s hard to say which foods are Fritz’s favorites to try to catch: “He gets excited about everything, but I have noticed some mild drooling with meat items.”

Gift lounges during the week leading up to the Golden Globes ceremony brought numerous vendors seeking to get their products into the hands of celebrities. Established brands like Pilot Pens, Pandora and Nautica stood alongside smaller, emerging brands such as Bright Baum and Canada Bliss. All vied for some one-on-one time from TV stars likes Viola Davis and Jeremy Piven and personalities like Amber Rose and Paris Hilton. Needless to say, a good time was had by all, with lots of mingling, picture taking and gift giving. Below is a sampling of what was offered:
Secret Room Event Style Lounge in Honor of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards at the SLS Hotel:
Fashion was big this year at the Secret Room. Designer Stella Carakasi had her collection of tops made with flowy, body hugging, eco-friendly fabrics that create a luxurious, elegant look.

Common and John Legend repped Hip-Hop beautifully at this year’s Golden Globes. The former G.O.O.D. Music label mates won a Golden Globe for the song “Glory,” from the Selma soundtrack, in the Best Original Song in a Motion Picture category.
It was an emotional moment for both men who took time out while accepting their award to acknowledge issues of race and violence currently plaguing our nation.
“The first day I stepped on the set of ‘Selma,’ I began to feel like this was bigger than a movie,” Common said during his acceptance speech. “As I got to know the people of the Civil Rights Movement, I realized that I am the hopeful Black woman who was denied her right to vote. I am the caring White supporter killed on the front lines of freedom. I am the unarmed Black kid who maybe needed a hand, but instead was given a bullet. I am the two fallen police officers murdered in the line of duty. ‘Selma’ has awaken my humanity.”
“Selma is now,” he concluded.
Also, John Legend’s wife quickly became a meme, just because.
Better yet, the win even made Jay Z log in to Twitter.

The Globes may have been golden, but tonight’s sartorial standout moments on the red carpet were inarguably silver. Attendees Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Dakota Johnson, and Diane Kruger stepped onto the red carpet in glittering embroidered jumpsuits and dresses—and even surprise presenter Prince wore a suit in the evening’s metallic of choice. A look at their corresponding hair and makeup choices proved they had more than mere fabrics in common. Arriving in variations that ranged from graphic and black to warm and smudgy, smoky eyes gave an insouciant edge to even the most effusive of sequined looks. Lips diverged in two directions—nude or berry—and hair tumbled loosely in textured waves. The takeaway? When your dress transmits unrestrained glamour, your hair and makeup demand a hint of rock ’n’ roll nonchalance.

If this year’s Golden Globes taught us anything, it’s that women are dominating TV. Our small screens have been filled with women of color, young women, gay women, women with mental illness, transwomen, women with good intentions and women motivated by greed over the last year. Put simply, women make for great TV.
Some highlights from the 2015 Golden Globes included:
–Amy and Tina listing the amazing credentials of Amal Clooney, whose husband George Clooney received the for the Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement award. Finding such a remarkable woman to agree to marry you definitely a lifetime achievement. (Clooney seemed to agree.)
We gathered some of the best reactions from women on Twitter to the 2014 Golden Globe Awards: Comedy – The Huffington Post
ENTERTAINMENT NEWS-Visit Mobile Playboy today for the hottest adult entertainment online!
If the 2015 Golden Globes taught us anything, it’s that women’s stories matter — and girls truly do rule. This year’s Globes gave us one badass feminist moment after another. (We are convinced that allowing people to eat and drink at an awards show makes everything better.)
There were some less-than-ideal parts of the show (i.e. Kevin Hart calling Salma Hayek “aggressive,” Jeremy Renner’s creepy joke about J.Lo’s breasts, the entire North Korea bit), but overall it delivered serious lady power — after all, four out of five of the shows nominated for Best Comedy have female showrunners — and some deeply powerful acceptance speeches.
We rounded up the 11 most feminist moments of the night:
1. Tina Fey poked fun at the props given to male actors who undergo physical transformations for roles — and simultaneously got in a jab at bullsh*t beauty standards.
“It took me three hours today to prepare for my role as a human woman,” she quipped.
2. Patricia Arquette gave a beautiful shout-out to single mothers and all that they do.
“You placed in my hands the part of Olivia, an under-appreciated single mother,” she said. “Thank you for shining a light on this woman and the millions of women like her and for allowing me to honor my own mother with this beautiful character.”
3. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey threw some serious shade at Bill Cosby.
Our girls didn’t hold back when alluding to the more than 20 women who have come forward with allegations against Cosby. When describing the plot “Into The Woods” Poehler joked, “Cinderella ran away from her prince, Rapunzel was thrown from a tower… and Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby.” Fey then proceeded to impersonate Cosby, quipping: “I put the pills in the people! The people did not want the pills in them!” Zing.
4. Joanne Froggatt used her acceptance speech to elevate the voices of rape survivors.
“I received a small number of letters from survivors of rape,” she said. “One woman summed up the thoughts of many by saying she wasn’t sure why she’d written but she just felt in some way she wanted to be heard. I’d like to say, I heard you and I hope saying this so publicly in some way means you feel the world hears you.”
5. Amy Adams reminded us just how much female role models matter.
“It’s just so wonderful that women today have such a strong voice. And I have a 4-and-a-half-year-old and I’m so grateful to have all the women in this room; you speak to her so loudly. She watches everything and she sees every thing. And I’m just so so grateful for all of you women in this room who have such a lovely, beautiful voice.”
6. Gina Rodriguez made it clear why having diversity on TV matters — specifically positive representations of the Latino community.
“This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” the “Jane the Virgin” actress said. “My father used to tell me to say every morning: ‘Today is going to be a great day. I can and I will.’ Well, Dad. Today is a great day. I can and I did.”
7. Tina Fey pointed out just how damn impressive Amal Clooney is. (George is a total trophy husband.)
Fey pointed out that Amal is a “human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, an advisor to Kofi Annan on Syria and was a appointed to a three-person commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip. So tonight her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
8. “Transparent”-creator Jill Soloway drew attention to the discrimination still faced by trans people on a daily basis. Everyone deserves to live their truth regardless of their gender identity.
“This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn and too many trans people who die too young,” she said. “And it’s dedicated to you, my trans parent, my moppa. You’re watching at home right now. I just want to thank you for coming out because in doing so you made a break for freedom, you told your truth, you taught me how to tell my truth and make this show. And maybe we’re going to be able to teach the world something about authenticity and truth and love. To love.”
9. Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda put to rest the “woman aren’t funny” line once and for all.
“It’s nice that men at last are getting the recognition they deserve for being good at comedy!,” said Fonda. “We can put to rest that negative stereotype that men just aren’t funny,” remarked Tomlin. (We really could not be more excited about their upcoming Netflix show.)
10. Maggie Gyllenhaal broke down the idea that all great roles for women have to depict “strong” women. Complicated women FTW.
“I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about the wealth of roles for powerful women in television lately,” she said when accepting her award. “And when I look around the room at the women who are here and I think about the performances that I’ve watched this year what I see actually are women are sometimes powerful and sometimes not, sometimes sexy, sometimes not, sometimes honorable, sometimes not, and what I think is new is the wealth of roles for actual women in television and in film. That’s what I think is revolutionary and evolutionary.”
