As Tina Fey and Amy Poehler closed the three-hour 71st Golden Globes show, each with a glass of wine in hand, Tina Fey (maybe inadvertently) gave the most accurate description of the award ceremony by calling it a ‘beautiful mess’.
The glamorous A-list dinner at the Beverly Hilton Hotel seemed plagued by teleprompter malfunctions and technical glitches. Presenters were reading out nominations while cameras frantically tried to zoom in on the nominees. Some of the lights seemed to go out on the stage set.
The biggest dose of awkward came from the stars themselves where the majority of award winners had to endure painstakingly long walks through a very tightly packed floor of star-studded dining tables. As they arrived on stage the same stars seemed completely shell-shocked and unprepared, which spawned repeated variations over the theme I-can’t-believe-I-won-so-I’ll-just-wing-it acceptance speeches. The worst was Jacqueline Bisset, who won for Best supporting actress in a series, miniseries or TV movie, and who stood speechless for what seemed like minutes before she rambled frantic thank you’s. Thankfully, the background music vehemently cued her off stage.
Despite the abnormalities, the Golden Globe was a great awards show with an impressive attendance of stars from both television and film. True to form, we won’t be focusing on the women of the Golden Globes (they will no doubt be dissected in an upcoming airing of Fashion Police), but rather we will take a closer look at the guys on the red carpet who maybe took home awards on the celebrity-heavy fete. So, here are our best picks for the best males of the evening.
Chris Pine – he didn’t present or receive an award, but boy, did he look good in a fitted tux and a little scruff!
Mark Ruffalo – Mr. Ruffalo was looking very clean-cut and groomed.
Channing Tatum - looked radiant with his longer hair and chin stubble. And his wife Jenna became his best accessory.
Matthew Mcconaughey (won for best actor in a drama for Dallas Buyers Club) – sported a deep green tux along with a deep tan that could have been sprayed on…
Matt Damon – looked effortlessly elegant in classic formalwear.
Bradley Cooper – another one whose tan may have come out of a bottle. But he looked cute as always.
Colin Farrell – the star threw in subtle bad boy accents by wearing a shiny tux and sporting the popular undercut hairstyle.
Robert Downey Jr. – true to style Downey looked effortlessly cool in a casually disheveled way with a loosened tie.
Michael Fassbender – who knew the handsome actor was a ginger? Liking the beard!
Jared Leto (won supporting actor in drama, musical or comedy for Dallas Buyers Club) – the beautiful singer/actor wore an evening scarf with his fitted, classic tux.
Michael Douglas (won for best actor in a miniseries or TV film for Behind The Candelabra) – the ultimate Silverfox looked great and all back to his former glory in a well-trimmed goatee and a smooth tux.
