Golden Globes 2012 - Elegant Fashion and Hilarious Moments

Ricky Gervais was witty and mildly sarcastic, which made for a delightful show with the usual boring thank you speeches and odd quirky moments.  The award shows are always a bit dull.   Overall, here is a quick take on the overview of the Golden Globes 2012. 

Top Movies in 2011: All contain an underlying theme: Change, acceptance, no blame game and new beginnings

The Descendants, won the Golden Globe: workaholic who needed to change his life and becomes both mom and dad while is wife is in a coma; War Horse: boy separated from horse, Joey, during WWI; MoneyBall: with a losing streak, tries something new and becomes a winning team; Melancolia: sister tries to change a mentally ill sister into a sunny person but no avail with a planet nearing earth; The Artist: actor in silent films refuses to embrace "talkies" and falls to the wayside of the movie industry only to start anew; The Help: a writer telling the story of the "help" and the society women during the civil rights movement in the 60's. Tree of Life:  simpler times, harsh discipline, warm mom, tough dad, war, tragedy yet all that is living is connected.

Yes, movies in 2011were uplifting, funny, imaginative, dramatic, with great scripts and overall upbeat.  Thanks too  Hollywood heavyweights Harvey Weinstein, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Alexander Payne for backing and developing good films that entertained. A fine year of film. 

Top Television Shows 2011:  Refreshing, well written and many actors are clamoring to be on a television series.  Best writing is on the cable channels.

Top Golden Globe Awards:
  • Best Actor: George Clooney - well deserved.  He is the "true movie star" among movie stars.  Watch him work the room. 
  • Best Actress: Meryl Streep - completely unexpected.  She hoped Viola Davis would win.  Her dress and hair were horrid but again she is Meryl Streep. Why the swearing on stage?
  • Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer - well deserved.  82 and still is brilliant on screen.
  • Best Supporting Actress:  Octavia Spencer - graceful, gorgeous and accomplished.  Well deserved. Best speech of the night.  A class act!
  • Best New Television Show:  Homeland
  • Best Actor in a Television Drama Series:  Kelsey Grammer - Boss - Yes!
  • Best Actress in a Television Drama Series:  Claire Danes -Homeland - Yes!
  • Best Television Comedy:  Modern Family
  • Best Movie Drama:  The Descendants
  • Best Movie Comedy:  The Artist

Vogue Fashion:  -  Fashion words of the night were elegant, charming and stunning.  The dress hues ranged from icy white, soft creams, pale flesh tones, vivid reds, emerald greens, cheery yellows and in fitted silhouettes. Men in primarily midnight blue tuxes.  Of course, only a very few missed the memo and lacked grace on stage and in apparel. Fashion couple of the night: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.    More on fashion on Forever Chic Style blog later this week.

Enjoy!  Oscars are next!!!

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani
