“It didn’t sink in until the moment I turned onto the red carpet,” nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) told Ryan Seacrest on the Golden Globes red carpet. “I just had a baby five weeks ago, so I’ve been in a completely other zone. And then I was overwhelmed—I teared up, actually. It’s an emotional moment.”
Rosamund also shared that her baby boy (whose name she hasn’t yet revealed) was hanging out in a nearby suite at the Hilton for the evening, “looking down” on the red carpet, that “he didn’t cry,” when he saw her Vera Wang dress, and that “he seemed to approve.”
And why this dress? “Vera Wang came to me,” Rosamund explained, “and said, ‘I know what to do with you right after you had a baby—leave it to me.'” She did, indeed, know what to do, I think—but the response from our readers on Twitter was mixed on the dress. Hopefully, it was at least easy to get on and off, though! “I’ll be running off after the carpet to give him his lunch,” she said.
Congrats to Amy Adams for her win for Best Actress (Big Eyes)! The star stunned in this Versace gown and Tiffany jewels, and she delighted her female peers in the audience when she spoke of how much they inspire her daughter, Aviana. “I have so many wonderful female role-models here tonight, looking out in the audience,” she said in her acceptance speech. “Women today have such a strong voice. I have a four-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 everything. And I’m just so grateful for all of you women in this world who have such a lovely, beautiful voice. And speaking to my daughter—thank you so much.”
Nominee Emily Blunt (Into the Woods) looked elegant in this custom Michael Kors. She said she worried about wearing white, “mainly because I’m clumsy and I have a baby that could spill stuff on it.” Of course, her sweetest accessory is hubby John Krasinski.
Here’s Julianne Moore, who won Best Actress for her role in Still Alice, in custom Givenchy couture. “I did say that I liked feathers,” she said. Her acceptance speech was powerful—especially when she closed by thanking her family: “I want to thank Bart and Cal and Liv for all that love.”
Best Supporting Actress winner Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) looked lovely in this custom black Escada dress. In her acceptance speech she extended a touching thank-you to those who have supported her as a single mother. “My siblings,” she said, “and my friends who watched my kids while I was trying to build a career as a 20-year-old single mother.” She also ended her speech by acknowledging her kids in a big way: “Especially to my kids, Enzo and Harlow, who I love and respect with all my heart. My favourite role in this whole life has been being your mom.”
“I want to thank…my daughters who will one day be great women,” Maggie Gyllenhaal said in her acceptance speech (Best Lead Actress, The Honorable Woman). She also captured the essence of the evening in that speech, when she noted the abundance of roles not simply for strong women, but for “actual women.” Maggie wore a gorgeous rose Miu Miu gown and brought her brother, Jake Gyllenhaal, to the event.
Butterflies! Nominated for The Imitation Game, it was a big night for pregnant Keira Knightley. The actress wore this interesting Chanel dress. “Apparently, it took 30 people to make this in a week,” she told Seacrest.
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt were adorable as always presenting together at last night’s awards.
“Chris and I have a mixed marriage,” she said. “I’m CBS; he’s NBC.”
“But, we plan to raise our children HBO,” he insisted.
“Honey, we said we’d let them decide when they grow up.”
“Don’t—not right now. God! Take your own helicopter home.” Ha!
And Anna’s dress? A sparkly nude Reem Acra gown. Love!
Pockets! Host Amy Poehler killed it on stage with Tina Fey. Of course, she rocked the red carpet, too, in this royal blue Stella McCartney with…awesome pockets.
Hilarious Tina Fey glammed it up on the red carpet in this custom Antonio Berradi dress for her big night.
“Julia Louis-Dreyfus is here because she’s obsessed with me,” Tina Fey joked in the show’s opening monologue (one of my favourite lines!). The Veep actress looked wonderful, as always, in this white, one-shouldered Narciso Rodriguez gown.
Kerry Washington chose this bold Mary Katrantzou dress.
The Good Wife nominee Julianna Margulies made a ton of best-dressed lists in this red floral dress by designer Ulyana Sergeenko.
Jennifer Lopez drew lots of attention for this flashy number. My daughter actually looked at me and remarked that the caped, high-slit Zuhair Murad dress was “unappropriate.”
Claire Danes opted for Valentino. The Best Actress in a Television Drama nominee (Homeland) felt precious in her dress, telling Seacrest, “I’m wearing art.”
Nominee Reese Witherspoon (Wild) sparkled in this strapless metallic Calvin Klein gown.
Kate Hudson was the talk of the town in this skin-baring white Versace gown, studded with Swarovski crystals.
DIY dress! Melissa McCarthy put her own dress together. “It’s custom,” she said. “It’s kind of a chop-shop from my closet. It’s odd, but I like it!”
Gorj! Nominee Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) looked totally exquisite in this strapless red Donna Karan Atelier dress.
Naomi Watts glowed in her yellow Gucci gown—and how about that amazing serpent Bulgari necklace! Of course, Liev Schreiber wasn’t so bad himself.
Not surprisingly, Kate Beckinsale was perfection in this classic Elie Saab dress.
Gwyneth Paltrow wowed viewers when she presented in this pretty pink Michael Kors gown and sparkly Harry Winston jewels. The actress opted to skip the red carpet altogether—presumably because she was at home working on this perfect pre-show Instagram shot.
Yellow was a big colour last night, thanks to stunning dresses like Jenna Dewan-Tatum‘s exquisite Carolina Herrera number. Her hot hubby, Channing Tatum, held Jenna’s train off the damp red carpet as they made their way around the venue. *Swoon.*
