Re Angelina, I really don't get why the media sees her as such a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Yes, she does have a rather interesting face, beautiful bone structure, and (what I am assuming are) genuinely full lips. But that's where it stops, imo. She's so thin now, I'm starting to worry if her spindly little neck will be able to continue holding up that head of hers. She looked like a stick figure with clothes on at the Golden Globes. She is dangerously thin and this has taken a lot away from her looks.

Tilda Swinton is an odd duck, definitely. I didn't really see what she was wearing at the GGs, though. All I noticed was that it was a pretty shade of blue--but by then, I was so sick of white, beige, black, and blush that I was happy to see any kind of color at all.
I love Tilda Swinton. Not crazy about her hair this time, but I thought the dress was lovely and unique. She's sort of in her own category, so I usually give her a pass. She's hardly ever boring, which is a nice change from so many people at these awards shows. I've been a fan since Orlando - she rarely makes safe choices and that's why I like her!
Re: Jane Fonda - even George Clooney commented about Jane in that dress! She looked amazing!
I love Meryl Streep and, although I think she could often wear things that are more flattering, I really don't care. I thought she looked terrific in the dress Chris March designed for her a few awards shows back. Like someone noted, she probably doesn't care all that much and dresses for comfort.
I love that David Furnish (Elton John's partner) bashed Madonna's win via Twitter. I guess she's said some rude things about Gaga (who is the godmother to David and Elton's son) too. Seems like she's grasping for relevancy. I think there was some controversy about Madonna's song even being nominated because it came fairly late in the credits of the movie. I doubt it will get an Oscar nod.

Oh that's what he was tweeting about.I knew Gaga was their child's godmother. I didnt know she was rude about her. I think Madge is past her sell by date.
