Golden Globes 2015 - Fashion Overview - Forever Chic Style

"Je Suis Charlie"              The 72nd Golden Globe ball was held on Sunday, January 11, 2015 with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler wittingly lashing out at the cinema industry with tongue and cheeky humor.  The banter between the two was hilarious and left the audience in stitches especially with a joke about George Clooney.   An awkward moment occurred when Jennifer Aniston presented the opening award of the evening.  The two crazy comedians asked the audience for someone to come up on stage with Aniston to announce the award. The first one to raise their hand will be the chosen winner.  Benedict Cumberbatch, nominee Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for The Imitation Game eagerly pounced on the opportunity.  Aniston was oddly shocked and showed frustration and surprisingly wasn't able to "wing it." It was a cringe worthy start to the affair but soon forgotten. On the other hand, winners Kevin Spacey , George Clooney , Ed

 The Movies & The Telly                       The Ladies                 Once again, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are at the helm of the 72nd Golden Globe shindig this coming Sunday, January 11, 2014 .  Fey and Poehler are splendid in this role and always a treat to watch. The stakes are high for them this year since movies were extraordinarily flat for 2014.  Yet, television series are soaring to the sky in popularity.   There isn't one film that stands out amongst the rest.  Last year movies were top notch and stellar entertainment:   Wolf of Wall Street, 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Blue Jasmine, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Philomena, Rush, Dallas Buyers Club, The Great Gatsby, Saving Mr. Banks, All is Lost, Nebraska and August Osage County among a few others.   In comparison, this year movies are possibly weak (haven't seen them all and some are releasing on January 16, 2015)  in terms of award winning and memorable films.  Films
