The Golden Globe Award is an accolade bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) recognizing excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign. The annual formal ceremony and dinner at which the awards are presented is a major part of the film industry’s awards season, which culminates each year with the Academy Awards.
Until Ricky Gervais hosted the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards Ceremony in 2010, the award ceremony was one of two major Hollywood award ceremonies (the other being the Screen Actors Guild Awards) that did not have a regular host; every year a different presenter introduced the ceremony at the beginning of the broadcast. Gervais returned to host the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in 2011, and the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards in 2012.
Interracial/Multiracial Celebrities & Fashion…
As a result of importance of the event, actors and invited guests alike have made it a tradition to look their very best. From the rental of the most exquisite and expensive jewelry, to some of the most intricate gowns, the Golden Globe Awards is never lacking in fashion. However, there was a serious case of bad dresses on good bodies at this year’s Golden Globes.
From Lucy Liu in what could only have been inspired by wallpaper, to Emily Mortimer’s sequined style sin, the stylists in charge should surely be sacked. Halle Berry, who has one of the most sensational figures in Tinseltown, failed to impress on the red carpet in a cutaway printed gown.
The design, by Versace, appeared to have been carelessly sliced apart at the midriff and thigh, and the bodice seemed far too tight, even on a waist as slim as Halle’s. The split in the dated pink printed skirt did at least allow the star to do her best impression of ‘Angelina’s leg’, and the nude court shoes were, at least, an elegant, understated choice.
Supermodel Heidi Klum also went for the same hairstyle as she graced the red-carpet looking white hot in a dramatic sweeping dress with sparkling beaded trim. The one-sleeved gown was slashed at the thigh, displaying plenty of the former Victoria’s Secret Angel‘s impeccably toned and tanned leg.
That being said, there weren’t too many fashion faux pas at the Golden Globes this year. Perhaps years of attacks from fashion police has taught the A-list that it is wiser to play it safe in flattering black and ethereal beiges and nudes.

In what may be one of the most memorable moments of the show, Bill Clinton shocked an audience full of Hollywood heavyweights as he appeared at the Golden Globes to present the film Lincoln. Mr Clinton introduced Lincoln, the film chronicling the fight to abolish slavery, and joked about his experience passing through unpopular legislation.
‘A tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided Congress. Winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals that had nothing to do with the big issue. I wouldn’t know anything about that,’ he said.
His appearance impressed even the most famous actors, as several were seen taking pictures with their cell phones while Mr Clinton was on stage. After announcing his name the cameras cut to the crowd, who immediately jumped to their feet to honor the former president.
Welcoming the praise: Former President Bill Clinton gave the introductory remarks for Lincoln at Sunday night’s Golden Globe awardsWell deserved: The entire room stood up for the former President
Golden Globes After-party…
Most people expect at these glitzy awards parties, the menus to feature the finest foods from across the world. But at the Harvey Weinstein’s, InStyle, HBO after Golden Globes bashes, the palettes were far less refined, which didn’t seem to bother the host of celebrities who were there to loosen up and party.
Guests were also treated to a live performance by ‘The Saturdays’ performed at the Golden Globes After-party. The fivesome looked glamorous as they took to the stage at the event and their stylish outfits complemented their stunning looks. The girls coordinated their clothing and a went with a theme of gold and white for the performance with Mollie King and Vanessa White standing out thanks to their shimmering gold skirts.
Heidi Klum happily chowed down on some french fries loaded with tomato sauce. The juxtaposition of the fast food and Heidi’s jewel encrusted outfit created a rather funny image, and with that in mind, the 39-year old’s earlier actions certainly added to the hilarity.
Even Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa couldn’t have looked any happier at the After-party. Just a few days after announcing they had cancelled their divorce, the pair appeared blissfully in love as they attended a party following the Golden Globes.
