Kate Bosworth in Emilio Pucci for a Golden Globe event: try-hard or cute?

This is a really big week for the awards season. Here are all of the things going down within the next seven days: New York Film Critics Awards (tonight), National Board of Review Awards (tomorrow), People’s Choice Awards (Wednesday), Critics Choice Awards (Thursday), the Oscar nomination announcements (also Thursday), then Golden Globe weekend, full of industry parties and the official start of everyone’s Oscar campaigns. This is all to prepare you for the onslaught. It’s going to be major.

So last night, Audi sponsored a “kickoff cocktail party” for the Golden Globes, and only one of the potential (and likely) Oscar nominees showed up. The rest of the people were an assortment of famewhores and television actors. Amongst that group, Kate Bosworth was literally the most photographed person there. How? Why? I mean, I guess I understand. Better to invite The Bos to a “kickoff cocktail party” than invite her to something that matters, like the actual Golden Globes. Of course, you wouldn’t know how unimportant this event is by the way she’s posing. This is her Oscar red carpet!! The Bos’s LBD is Emilio Pucci. And that’s her (somewhat creepy) fiancé Michael Polish.

Kate just turned 30 years old last week, and Michael (who is 42!!!) helped her celebrate by getting this story into Us Weekly:

Kate Bosworth is a lucky gal. On Wednesday, Jan. 2, the Straw Dog star’s 30th birthday, Bosworth woke up to a gorgeous bouquet of roses and lilies from her fiance, Michael Polish, along with this sweet message:

“Happy Birthday to my #1 on the #2 day of 2013,” the 42-year-old director tweeted. “I love you.”

“What a beautiful way to start my bday!” the actress replied, along with a picture of her birthday blooms. “Thank you, Michael Polish.”

But flowers are just the beginning. An insider told Us Weekly that the blonde stunner’s beau has an even bigger surprise in store for his love of more than a year.

“Michael always wants to make Kate feel special and he can’t wait to celebrate her big day,” the source teased. “He’s completely crazy about her!”

The feeling is mutual. Engaged since summer, Bosworth told Us that even though she has yet to start planning her wedding to Polish, whom she met on the set of Big Sur, she’s got the most important detail down — the perfect groom.

“I’m not sure what I want [our wedding] to look like,” she said. “But I know the man, and that’s the only thing that matters.”

[From Us Weekly]

Poor Bos. She’s trying to drum interest in something – anything! Would you like to hear about her birthday? No? Would you like to hear about her engagement? Would you like to hear about her wedding plans? She will tell you anything!! Anything except for news of her future projects, because her career is really faltering. The last movie she did was a Jason Statham action film, in which The Bos was cast lower than Winona Ryder. Burn!

PS… Bonus Naomi Watts & Liev Schreiber at the same event. I feel bad for Naomi if she felt like she had to share the red carpet with The Bos. Naomi is about a million times more talented than The Bos.

    She’s definitely boring, but she looks nice here. She should stop trying to be an actress and nab more modeling contracts. She seems really happy with this guy…he, uh, must have a nice personality.

  2. Amy says:

    It’s hilarious to me that she’s never a nominee or even part of a project that is nominated, she just shows up to these awards events and parties. So worthless.

  3. Mirella says:

    Oh Bos…
    The dress is sort of similar to other LBD’s she’s worn before. It’s nice though.

  4. carrie says:

    she’s pretty (but very skinny)
    naomi watts looks good

  5. JM says:

    I like the more natural hair color so much better than too blond. Wish more celebs would follow suit.

  6. Penny says:

    Not a fan of Naomi’s Dorothy Zbornak-shoulder pad, not of her terrible, terrible shoes.

    Kate Boswotth is “meh.”

  7. kate says:

    She is as smug as a fox in a chicken house. And that is because she reads the blogs everyday just like us. She knows damn well about the alleged (most likely true) rumours of Miranda cheating on Orly.

    Just like Ansiton, Boz will never be over her ex. Only problem for Boz, is that we don’t care.

  8. Hannah says:

    Pretty, though. Have to give her that…

  9. KellyinSeattle says:

    The dress looks really cheap in a Walmart way….don’t like the length at all….try hard.

  10. Nya says:

    She looks nice. The only career she has left is when her fiance makes “fashion” videos of her though since they’re obsessed with each other. Their twitters are so f’n creepy. At least she finally found a guy who was willing to whore himself out.

  11. elo33 says:

    Meh pretty girl, beautiful haircolor, and horrible bitch face.

  12. andrea says:

    What’s up with those facial expressions? Do her lips do that because of Botox and fillers? Anyhow, she really should stop telling her fiance to slick back his hair, he looks like a serial killer.

  13. Sweet Dee says:

    She’s gorge but so skinny and incredibly not talented, the poor girl. I always feel bad for her because I get the feeling she doesn’t know that.

    So…are shoulder pads coming back in, resident fashionistas? I vote no.

  14. Steph says:

    With the slicked-back hair he gives off a Willard vibe.

  15. keats says:

    Is his name Polish as in someone from Poland, or polish as in shining metal?

  16. Gwen says:

    When is she NOT try hard? *snort*

    The new hair colour suits her a lot better though.

  17. cr says:

    She does look good here, though still try-hard.
    But Kaiser, you forgot to mention, she does have something coming up, Big Sur is premiering at Sundance in a couple of weeks, and she’ll get to engage in some more red carpet try-hard for that.

  18. TheOriginalKitten says:

    M Polish looks really young for 42. I think Bos is beautiful, but she’s no actress. Naomi Watts is amazing. Love that woman and I love Liev too.

  19. Manchurian Global says:

    It doesn’t really matter what she wears. She’ll always be a try-hard to me. :/

  20. Memphis says:

    I always thought she was pretty, boring, but pretty.

  21. lori says:

    Is she really only 30? She looks like a “real housewife” here. Naomi looks younger and fresher and she’s like 15 years older.

    • Pale fire says:

      Really ? I think she looks great? She’s not 21…0r 18 but considering she’s close to the same age as Claire Danes and Britney Spears,
      I think she looks frigging great. Shes always pretty natural with the makeup and hair; I don’t see a lot of “fake real housewives” or looking old here. Maybe just peels and Botox. But she looks nice to me.

      • cr says:

        She looks nice, yes, it’s not as if she looks old and haggard.
        But, considering how fresh faced she was up until the mid 00′s, can’t help but wonder if she’d look younger if she hadn’t had that weight loss in 2006 (I don’t think she ever stopped being underweight after that), and no peels.

      • KC says:

        Kate looks a about ten years older than she is. And Britney is a rough 30, most likely from her history of drug abuse, so I don’t know why you’re citing her as an example of what an average 30 year old looks like.

      • Pale fire says:

        @KC it’s just my opinion. Women are sexy attractive gorgeous at any age. You can be a busted rough 20 year old or fit healthy 40 year old. Its doesn’t matter it’s not relative to how many years you’ve been alive but how you have lived them. I was just listing actresses or celebrities that I think look older than their age regardless of whether it’s from a poor life style that are around the same age as Kate. Britney looks older than her true age that’s why I mentioned her.

      • KC says:

        Okay, from your phrasing I thought you were trying to say that Kate looked her age. I personally think she looks the same age as Britney Spears. I still don’t get your reference to 18 year olds (do you think that everyone holds that as the gold standard of beauty?), but whatever.

  22. Izzy says:

    I actually like the way she looks here, and it looks like she might have even gained a pound or two! Good for her – she was (and still is) way too skinny. Maybe her fiance showed her pictures of a deli sandwich?

    Anyhoo, I have to say that I do like one comment in particular of hers – “I’m not sure what I want [our wedding] to look like. But I know the man, and that’s the only thing that matters.” I know too many couples who have had the big “fairy tale” wedding only to have the “nightmare divorce” later on. At least her focus seems to be on the more important thing – the person she’s marrying.

    Also, Naomi Watts shoes – fugly. SHOE TRAUMA.

  23. Dani says:

    Not understanding the immense hate for Kate Bosworth here? She’s not a great actress but I’ve seen much worse. For what it’s worth, she looks pretty here – I really like her dress but the shoes are bland.

  24. Cazzie says:

    Okay, etiquette question inspired by the exclamation point: my ex-husband is 42 and just got remarried to a woman who is 30.

    I kind of feel bad because I were the second wife I would want to know how the first marriage really ended. It seems like the new wife deserves to know about some things, like the girlfriend my ex-husband has at his field site in Africa, and many more besides. He is a pathological liar and cheat – but also incredibly intelligent and charming, and he’s showing her his good side and waiting for her to find out the rest later. My guess is he’s going to lock things down with a child or two before he lets her find out about all his infidelities.

    So all of this is none of my business, right?

    I have no obligation to inform the new wife about how my ex-husband had a half-dozen affairs during the last two years of our marriage, and how for example when I questioned him about one of the women he told me that I needed therapy to deal with my paranoia issues.

    I feel bad about her naivete – from a distance it looks like she’s going into the marriage like a lamb to the slaughter – but it’s all in the past and none of my business, right? Just checking that I am supposed to keep my mouth shut…

    • Bijlee says:

      Hmmm difficult I think you should tell her if she’s marrying the guy so she doesn’t have kids with him or something! But I doubt that advice will fly here.

      • Cazzie says:

        If only I could warn her anonymously, I would!

        Frankly, I’m a bit surprised that she never came to me for the full story, but then again she is young and probably believes everything my ex-husband is telling her about ‘how much he’s changed’ and that ‘he’s different now.” Oh, and that he loves her too much to ever lie to her (he used to use that one on me).

        Sigh…if only that were true. When I was in his city two years ago for a conference, my ex and I had lunch. He and this now-wife were already a couple but that did not stop him from telling me how great I looked and inviting me back to his place for the afternoon. Old times’ sake and all that. I politely declined, but yeah – he is still an active cheat, and as far as I can tell the new wife has no idea.

    • Pale fire says:

      Ughhh I know a couple in a similar situation. It seems men use the second time around girl to be everything they were never were to the first one. They’re better at hiding their sh!t. Girls are always younger and sold a fake facade. It’s a tough call bc you can come off looking bitter or lying. What you should tell yourself is you lived you learned and you don’t have to deal with that any more. She’ll figure it out maybe not soon but eventually. Sorry you had to go through that :(

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      Cazzie, if it really bothers you, then you should try to inform her about his cheating etc, even if she does not believe you, at least you can tell your conscience that you did the right thing, warned her and move on.
      I mean, I do not think she will believe you over him, and you might come off as bitter and resentful/ not over him, but you will feel better maybe.

  25. freya says:

    I’ll say something nice: she looks a lot less scary with her bony chest and knees covered. And her hair looks better this way.
    But the woman has got to learn to eat healthier and she should stop with the botox. Naomi Watts looks fresher and younger than her. Oh, and she should practice on not making that weird, twisted, smug smile.
    Other than that, I’m sort of happy(?)for her that she found someone who’s willing to famewhore with her.

  26. Kathy says:

    She actually looks pretty here…definite improvement.

  27. blonde on the dock says:

    Love Kate’s dress plus she looks so pretty. I’ll never understand what Naoimi Watts sees in Liev Schreiber. He’s so unattractive to me. Maybe he has a nice personality???

  28. lrm says:

    naomi is beautiful! she and kate look the same age but they are over a decade apart….
    kate is beautiful, too but TOO skinny.
    i saw pics of her out shopping the other day and gasped at her thiness.
    honestly, that’s unhealthy-ten lbs or even 5, would be great on her.

  29. midnightmoon says:

    I tried to warn the now-wife of a man who victimized me and two other women at the same time. All THREE of us attempted to do so. Loooooonnnngggg story. She would not listen, had a baby, and two years on, I am reading her blogs and seeing the beginnings of the marriage unravelling. She STILL says how amazing he is.

    When sociopaths want it, they get it.

    Cazzie, if you have a friend of a friend who can pass the word along, do try. At least give the new wife a run-down of the pattern your abuser followed with you.

    It would be tragic if she spawned with him. I feel so badly for the woman my abuser trapped. The tale is positively hair raising.

    Probably nothing I can do even when he is done with his latest victim. I just feel sad, and am hoping (probably in infinite futility) that his being an at-home daddy is keeping him out of trouble. Not bloody likely.

    Sigh. The ugly underbelly of humanity is very disheartening. I sure do wish life was all Beanie Babies and Rainbo Brites. But it ain’t.

    Kate B has not looked so gorgeous in years. The dress is fug. Naomi is not looking so hot. What is up with her HAIR?? SHE NEEDS A STYLIST STAT!! Maybe she can steal Diane Kruger’s for the Oscar season, since Diane seems content to wear clothes and kiss a lot, though not much else lately. Oooh-MEEEEOOOWWWW. My little sharp claws just did a slice and dice…

  30. Kosmos says:

    Yes, Kate looks pretty good here, although I’m not sure what she is really like as a person. Certainly not getting many roles as an actress lately, too bad. Maybe her fiance is her best and strongest admirer? Love Naomi Watts here, but gag, those horrid shoes have to go !

  31. Jub-Jub says:

    I’m not a fan of Kate’s but I do like that she’s stopped with the fake tan. She looks better pale.

  32. Littlewood says:

    I do think Kate is pretty, she has beautiful skin and her hair and make-up are on point. I do however think she could stand to gain a few pounds, she looked great in that surfing movie she did, but in the business she’s in (fashion mostly) I think she gets encouraged to stay the size she is. I don’t like the face she’s pulling though, she looks so much more beautiful when she smiles!

  33. donnadew says:

    I don’t think Kate can help making that idiotic face because her face –especially her lips– has been so tinkered with. And because she’s an idiot.

  34. Jill says:

    So looking at Naomi Watts from head to….OH DAMN!! Those shoes are ugly!!
