2019 Golden Globes Open Post: Hosted by Nicole Kidman’s Renaissance


8th AACTA International Awards - Arrivals

Nicole Kidman was everywhere for Golden Globes weekend – she wore a dramatic MiuMiu gown for the 8th AACTA International Awards, she attended the Gold Meets Golden party, she did the BAFTA Tea Party event on Saturday, and she generally looked like she’s been having a ball. The Kidman Renaissance is here, but it really never left. I mean, she had some “off” years for a stretch of time, but Nicole really has been churning out interesting work on a consistent basis for decades. Nicole is nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama for her role in Destroyer, where she “uglied up” to play a cop on the edge. She could conceivably get more nominations – perhaps even an Oscar nomination – for Destroyer, or for her supporting role in Boy Erased. We’ll see!

The E! Red Carpet for the Golden Globes starts at 6 pm with Ryan Seacrest (gross) and Giuliana Rancic (uh). NBC will also have a live red carpet show starting at 7 pm. The Globes start at 8 pm, and for the second year in a row, the Globes will be online too – they will be livestreamed on the NBC app and on the NBC website. I have my fingers crossed that Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will do a good job co-hosting together.

As always, CB and I will be live-tweeting the red carpet and the Globes. You can follow me @ KaiseratCB, and follow CB @ Celebitchy. (You can also follow Hecate @ HecateAtCB). We’ll have full fashion coverage starting bright and early tomorrow morning, so come join us!

    She looks lovely in these photos and that peacoat ensemble is casual wardrobe goals 😍

  2. Tina says:

    Starting off well with Idris Elba, who looks amazing! (As does his daughter, who I don’t think I’ve ever seen before).

  3. Karen2 says:

    I agree with you shes never really gone away…unfortunately. I really enjoyed her character in Aquaman tho. Ive seen that movie 4 times already & will go once more. I want Aquaman to get some love at the Oscars. Cant tell you how much I hate that yet another Brit Royal movie will get so many awards.

      Are you talking about “The Favourite”? If so, it was a *very* good movie: great acting, sharp, witty dialogue, gorgeous costumes. I think Olivia Coleman was fantastic and, but I have a feeling Amy Adams may get it for her portrayal of Lynn Cheney. Personally, I’d love it if Elise Fischer wins for “Eighth Grade”.

  4. Lucy says:

    Yay! I’ve always liked Kidman. Don’t even mind whatever she does with her face that much (not that she cares). LOVE that casual blazer+jeans outfit!! I’m betting she’ll bring it tonight, fashion wise. And I, too, can’t wait to see Sandra and Andy hosting!!

  5. minx says:

    NK looks good, I just think her hair color is too light for her skin color.

  6. Kebbie says:

    Is there an NBC red carpet show? I’ve got football and then the award show on my guide.

  7. PlayItAgain says:

    Just saw a pic of Margot Robbie. Why does she keep going for the junior dominatrix looks?

  8. Lightpurple says:

    Timothée Chalamet is adorable but he looks like he is competing for the Olympic medal in figure skating

  9. amg says:

    This is the worst Globes opening I have ever seen.

  10. Caroline says:

    Wow, this is a super awkward and uncomfortable opening. I normally love both Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, but this is horrible.

    • Franklymydear... says:

      I was thinking the same thing! Awful. Sandra Oh got serious and it was confusing for a minute. She said, “I see you,” and someone in the audience laughed. So awkward. I miss Ricky Gervais but I get that they are going for kindness. Boring tho.

      • Kebbie says:

        Lol that single laugh was super awkward, but I don’t think it took away from the moment in the room (I hope?)

        I definitely don’t miss Ricky Gervais though. He was the absolute worst. He just insulted people and giggled afterward with that “I’m so cheeky!” look on his face lol super cringeworthy. His jokes also kind of reminded me of Family Guy jokes. A lot of reaching and odd segues to connect the dots.

        Amy and Tina killed it every time though.

    • North of Boston says:

      I did like the snark about
      ” “Crazy Rich Asians” s the first studio film with an Asian American lead since “Ghost in the Shell” and “Aloha.”
      ….followed by a shout from Emma Stone in the audience “I’m sorry!”

      • lucy2 says:

        I was wondering if that was Emma or Scarlett, and then laughed at myself for thinking Scarlett would ever do that.

      • Kebbie says:

        Omg, I didn’t even catch that. Emma was the only one there and I think the only one of the two that has enough self-awareness to apologize lol

        ETA: lmao I just watched the clip on Twitter, definitely Emma. Love that Sandra made the joke and that Emma apologized

      • Parigo says:

        They are both guilty of white washing and working with Woody Allen. I don’t know if Emma is sincere, but she’ll try to make it look like that. Scarlet would never apologize to begin with.

  11. Nev says:

    The opening had a few misses but there was also some funny parts.

  12. BlueSky says:

    Bradley Cooper needs to lay off the Botox. I’m already over the ASIB campaign.

  13. titi says:

    Michelle Yeoh is so stunning she is disrupting the freaking galaxy……OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

  14. lucy2 says:

    Regina and Sandra. YES.

  15. Tai says:

    Did you guys see the big Kendell K reveal? She had acne and is the new spokesperson for Proactive. Good grief. 🙄

    • jan90067 says:

      Oh yeah… and Pimp Mama crowing how “proud she is” of Kendull being “so open and vulnerable”… GMAFB 🤢🤮

    • minx says:

      Are you kiddoing me?! I thought it was going to be some sort of MeToo thing. Acne, big deal.

      • Nene says:

        Its very easy to be dismissive about acne but acne (for some of us) is a big deal.
        I had terrible acne (so bad that people used to stare when i went out and my self esteem was low because of it) and it only ended after multiple high dosage rounds of accutane.

        Lets be a little more compassionate.

      • Beth says:

        PMK made a big deal about how proud she was of her little darling for being brave enough to tell some dark secret. Millions of us had bad acne, my sister in her late 30′s still has it and she has scars from it. Kendall might have had terrible acne, but was able to afford the best dermatologist, and still became a “super model.” I was also expecting something like a #me too situation

      • Thirsty Hirsty says:

        My son had terrible acne….but it took a friend to tell me there was such a thing as accutane and to take him to a doctor. I just thought it was male hormones ….luckily he only has a few scars. The odd pimple here and thee is not acne….acne is uncomfortable and hard on a kid’s self esteem. I wish I had known there was something to be done way sooner. So if KJ uses her platform to teach and educate, I’m giving her the pass, bigly time…

  16. Tai says:

    Is Bradley Cooper dressed like Col. Sanders?

  17. Alissa says:

    this show as a whole has been pretty awkward, or is it just me?

  18. Nev says:

    Ricky Martin SWOON.

  19. kellybean says:

    Kristen and Dax….just so extra. So so extra.

  20. anony7 says:

    Something I just noticed in these pictures is how long (vertical) Kidman’s ears are. Result of years of wearing heavy earrings? Or were they always so lengthy?

    • Tai says:

      This got me curious so I looked at pics of a young Kidman. In most, her masses of curley red hair cover her ears but I finally found a few and her ear lobes are a normal size. I don’t kbow what is going on in the pic on this thread. They do look large don’t they?

      • Jenna says:

        I could be completely wrong, but aren’t droopy ears a sign of face lifts? Like all the pulling just makes them sort of deflate and elongate…

    • Pinetree13 says:

      Fun fact, your ears never stop growing. Look at people in their 90’s ears….soooo big!!!! I think dangly earrings also yanks down women’s ear lobes 😳

  21. Patty says:

    LOL. ASIB only won Best Song. I like Sandra Oh and Andy S. but there were more misses than hits. And again, show is way too long. Way too long.

  22. Riley says:

    In all the GG threads, here isn’t really one where my comment fits, but here goes anyway: Who else caught Richard Gere saying “Good night Alejandra, go to bed now” right before he presented? I thought maybe he had a new child with the new wife, but that is his wife! Even though she is young enough to be his kid, she’s his wife and that’s something you say to a child. I thought it was really demeaning and disrespectful.

    Did Nicole Kidman have an eye lift?
