2020 Golden Globes Open Post: Hosted by Nicole Kidman’s fug robe-coat

Gold Meets Golden Party in Beverly Hills

Here is our 2020 Golden Globes Open Post, and I can’t believe we’re doing this all so soon! Are you back in the work vibe? Are you back in the awards season vibe? I’m feeling strangely… chill about the awards season. I only have one person – Jennifer Lopez – who I’m rooting for this year, and the rest of them I could take or leave, mostly leave. Joker was trash, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was okay but I’m not stanning it, My Nemesis Laura Dern will be smirking up every awards show and The Irishman will probably win everything except the actress awards, because The Irishman barely has any speaking roles for women. Not to mention, this year’s Globes telecast is hosted by Ricky Gervais, who is awful. Come and hate-watch it with us!

Our hostess for the Globes Open Post is Globe-nominated Nicole Kidman. Nicole is nominated for Bombshell, and she attended a few pre-Globe events this weekend. These are photos of her appearance at the Gold Meets Golden event on Saturday. This weekend was full of pre- Globes events in LA, none of which were particularly well-attended by A-listers. Nicole was the big “get” for this event, which was some kind of charity-brunch thing and obviously quite casual. The event is actually a fundraiser for Angel City Sports, which provides resources for disabled athletes. So a good cause rather than the typical ass-kissy pre-awards boozefest.

CB said some sh-t to me about Nic’s shoes, but I actually like them? I’ve always wished that I had the kind of body/style/vibe to pull off a well-made loafer, but I’ve never been that person. What’s hideous to me is the Chloe coat, which appears to be a silk robe hate-f–king an ‘80s blazer. YIKES. Something nice: Nicole donated $500,000 to Australian fire relief and she’s been providing info for other people to donate to some good causes – go here to see. Australia is on fire. Like, almost all of Australia is burning. It’s an awful situation.

Anyway, the Globes start at 8 pm on NBC (here in America). CB and I watch and tweet through the red carpet pre-show on E!, which gets worse and worse every year that Ryan Seacrest is in charge. You can follow CB here @Celebitchy, and you can follow me here @KaiseratCB (bonus: follow Hecate here @HecateatCB). We’ll be tweeting throughout the whole booze-soaked mess.

    I’m here and ready! Well actually not bc the football game is still on lol but after that. I don’t really care about the actual awards, I just want to see the fashions

  2. minx says:

    That coat/whatever looks really cheap and I’m sure it’s not.

  3. Casey says:

    Her face looks different again…. 🤔

    • Sally says:

      I agree. The problem, in my opinion, is the ‘work’…. she gets, works backwards for her. She looks older, instead of younger.
      just saying..

    • Bee says:

      When she smiles it throws everything out and literally looks like pain.

    • Royalwatcher says:

      She’s unrecognizable! And looks horrible, IMO. She looks like Christie Brinkley’s plastic surgery twin sister…or something.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I just zoomed in and said, “WHOA!” out loud because of her excessive filler…it’s made her face lumpy, thick and misshapen. Good god.

  4. TheOtherSam says:

    Curse me, but I like that coat on Nicole. It looks comfortable. I like the whole look, actually.

  5. BlueSky says:

    If she has a stylist he or she needs to be fired immediately.

  6. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for her dress, but I love that she shared the places to donate (and donated herself).

    • tiredTreaded says:

      I give her all breaks. Australia has the most amazing wildlife…true magic and my heart is broken…can’t imagine how she must feel

      • bananapanda says:

        Also, her own (country) house is under threat. She’s very very stressed out right now. It’s the house featured on her 73 Questions with Vogue video.

  7. jenner says:

    wow this outfit. but i read elsewhere that she was crying on the red carpet about the fires in Australia, and thinking her house was maybe in the path of the fire. so i’ll give her a pass if her mind was elsewhere and she did not know what she was wearing when she showed up. because this is truly bad.

    • Casey says:

      Ugh I think about the koalas. It’s possible they could be wiped out, most of the wild ones. Their source of food, eucalyptus leaves, are from CRAZY flammable trees. Eucalyptus lights up like a matchstick easily. They’re here all over in California bc they were brought over from Oz for the Gold Rush. They’re invasive & populate CA everywhere now. They also are known for their shallow roots & can often fall over if the wind is hard enough. I am hoping so goddamn hard these fires stop. When oddities are always horrible, but seeing it up close in my native state these past couple years…it’s apocalyptic & heartbreaking. Honestly earthquakes, tornadoes, floods…those are destructive, but wildfire are a unique horror. I can’t explain it, and don’t even want to try

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        I just had to chime in about the eucalyptus – there’s a bunch along the highway in my hometown in CA that the city wanted to take out because of falling limbs, etc., but a bunch of people were upset b/c they love them and I was like, but they aren’t native to CA and totally look out of place, not to mention the danger to bikers and drivers

      • Mireille says:

        I pray and hope too for the end of these wildfires. My thoughts to the people and wildlife of Australia.

      • jenner says:

        the videos of people giving koalas water to drink out of bottles, omg. so sad :(

      • Nibbi says:

        god, the koalas. all the other animals too of course. it’s just that i saw a video of a burned/ burning (!!) koala wandering dazedly around in one of the fires before a woman took off her shirt and picked him up and tried to save him as he cried in pain (he later died) and i truly feel like my mind, and my heart, will never be the same.

  8. Snappyfish says:

    Billy Porter looks divine as usual

  9. BeanieBean says:

    White T-shirt, good pair of jeans, well-made loafers: great outfit. Weird coat-thing, totally ruined great outfit. I really liked it a lot when I thought she wore this to the GG itself; as a pre-event thing, though, eh, it’s just OK.

  10. Clairej says:

    Nicole is one of my favourites to watch out for. Hopefully she is saving it up for the ceremony. I love Ricky so looking forward to what he comes out with.

    • Marie says:

      He nailed it with this line: “So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.”

  11. vegasschmegas says:

    She looks like the airlines lost her luggage, and this is what she travelled in. 🤣

  12. Hmm says:

    She looks like she just wandered out of the house. This is a fancy version of just a regular bathrobe and pajama pants sticking out the bottom and slippers. This is the — pre-Globes event version. Lol! Aw Nicole.

    I’m here for this messy Golden Globes! Michelle Williams, where are you?

  13. DiegoInSF says:

    Also just watching just for JLo. She better win everything!

  14. Casey says:

    I hope Ricky Gervais calls out Scarlet J over Woody Allen support & maybe even a fun mocking of Meryl Streep calling Weinstein ‘god’ in her acceptance speech (wishful thinking tho)

  15. vegasschmegas says:

    Jodie Comer’s dress makes her look like Gumby. Sad….she’s so gorgeous!

    • Enormous Coat says:

      Oh my gosh, I actually love Jodie Comer’s dress and look, which surprises me because it seems like something I’d normally find hideous. But I can’t find a bad thing to say.

      And re the wildfires. Devastating. The toll on wildlife is something I find myself having to put out of my mind.

    • Mia4s says:

      I figured it was a Baby Yoda tribute. 😏

      But yeah….not a great look for the Globes. Maybe for the Met Gala.

  16. Lightpurple says:

    Why isn’t Kerry Washington wearing a shirt?

  17. Mireille says:

    I’m with you Kaiser on your comments on the films. I’ll be skipping the Globes. Don’t want to watch The Irishman — another movie on white men in organized crime — clean up. I need to vent. I work in healthcare in NYC and I’ve seen what gangs and violence can do in real life — I don’t need to be reminded in the movies. Give me the superhero films where the good guys win all the time.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      I agree with you. I’ve never understood the appeal of those films, on the other hand, I’m not a white male, so….

    • Lindy says:

      I watched the whole damn thing and can confirm that it’s absolutely awful, and is a total vanity project for Scorcese. And is indeed a bunch of white men pretending to tell a real story about mob violence while actually glamorizing all of it.

      • Bella A A says:

        Not only was it a vanity project, but it was boring! I could not finish and I love gangster movies. I love Nicole’s outfit except for the coat and I feel bad about the fires in Australia!
        Also, I love Ricky as he has that irrevent British humor!

  18. Lightpurple says:

    Nicole’s look tonight is very glamorous

    Kaiser’s Nemesis went for another floral

  19. SJR says:

    NKidman looks a bit odd in this photo.
    Just a bad pic, or did she do something to her face again?
    The entire outfit is bad.

  20. vegasschmegas says:

    Nick Jonas….Prada bolo tie. Nope

    • jenner says:

      lol, he always looks like such a boy-child next to priyanka.

    • Tosca says:

      Is Priyanka looking possibly pregnant? Did anyone notice? She’s so gorgeous at any weight, I’m not fat-shaming, just curious what you all think.

      • Suzanne says:

        I don’t see what all the fuss is about her. I can’t get past the fact that her top lip touches her nose every time she smiles…and yes, that dress clung to her stomach which looked very noticeably puffy. Color was becoming on her though. The husband looks like her kid brother next to her.

  21. JustMe says:

    Ricky Gervais is PULLING NO PUNCHES wow

    • Becks1 says:

      It was funny at first and then he was just yelling at them.

      To be fair nothing he said was wrong.

  22. DiegoInSF says:

    Is Jennifer Aniston drunk?

    • Becks1 says:

      I was literally just coming here to say that!! She is usually so poised at these shows. Not tonight.

    • Riley says:

      She looked so full of fillers that she could barely move her mouth.

    • StormsMama says:

      I told my husband I think Jen Aniston took a shot or 2 of tequila before walking out there

    • Jackie says:

      She has had problems with teleprompters before because she needs glasses to read them and she doesn’t like to wear them when she’s presenting. I don’t think she was 100% sober but I didn’t think she was completely drunk either.

  23. Carmen says:

    Jesus Mary Mother of God, what the HELL is Kerry Washington wearing? Or not wearing? Woman, put some clothes on! You look disgusting!

  24. Lila says:

    Lisa Bonet looks lovely. Organic and quirky style dress, which suits her so well.

    • Aang says:

      I think she has always been so very beautiful and then her daughter shows up and is even more gorgeous. I’ve had a crush on her since the Cosby Show days.

  25. Hmm says:

    Looking through all the fashion… Scarlett Johansson looks terrible! The worst. But I don’t feel bad for her at all. Guess her karma is catching up to her…

    Margot Robbie’s dress could be better, but she looks bright and gorgeous as usual. Kerry Washington, goodness, no bra?

    Gwyneth Paltrow, OMG!! She got gooped!! Cate Blanchett looks like the Helen Mirren version of herself. J Lo’s outfit is easy to make fun of, but I don’t hate it. It’s kind of spectacularly awful. She had to know it was awful but went for it anyway because why not, she’s J Lo.

    Where is Michelle Williams?

    • Carmen says:

      That dress is so un-JLo, I couldn’t believe she’d appear in something like that. Although if you took off those two horrible gigantic bows it might actually be wearable.

      • Hmm says:

        Agree. But I feel like J Lo’s at the age — and this is also her year to feel like, I’ve paid my dues. I’ve done the work. I can wear whatever I want.

        Gwyneth’s is the one that really confuses me. Not white, beige or pink. It’s a barfy brown. And frilly and sheer… Lol! What?

  26. I'm With The Band says:

    Why is Pierce Brosnan is channeling Colonel Sanders?

  27. Becks1 says:

    First thought when LD beats out JLo – Kaiser is NOT going to be happy lol

    • BellaBella says:

      My first response was a fist pump. I think if I have to hear “nemesis” one more time I might have to leave the site, which is too bad, because I enjoy coming here.

  28. L4frimaire says:

    Her face looks so mask like. Doesn’t look like Nicole Kidman. Starting to see some of the fashion and most of it is bad, or basic. Kerry Washington forgot to put on a shirt or bra, JLo looks like she’s wearing a stick-on Christmas bow and Gwyneth Paltrow’s dress got caught in a shredder. Billy Porter looks fabulous. Best look so far,

  29. Boo says:

    I thought Ricky was great. I love the whole thing of he’s terrible and tacky and says what people need to hear and they’ll never ask him back. It’s great. Those people need to hear that shit. Also the Tom Hanks thing was brilliant and long love Fleabag. Fleabag was life changing.

  30. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    I tried and I can’t with the Golden Globes; I’m sure I’m not their audience and they don’t miss me, though. I haven’t tried to watch for years, tonight is a good/sad reminder why. Well, it’s worse, because the main message feels like: it’s all staying the same, of course, current happenings are influencing my mood. But, I can’t wait to see the fashion tomorrow and congrats Awkwafina.

  31. Spicecake38 says:

    Joaquin Phoenix for Joker…don’t plan to see it,but I like him enough,but his rambling acceptance speech-what a mess!

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Ooo,now Renee Zellweger for Judy,we watched this Friday and loved it❤️
      I knew she’d get the win for this,I hope she sweeps this year,she was really really good.

    • Sillygene says:

      He was so wasted…. nobody looked amused. Curious if/how this impacts Oscars voting?

  32. Jess says:

    Nicole finally went too far on her face, she was teetering on the edge for years but that’s it! She’s done. Hopefully she stops, like Courtney Cox did after her one too many.

  33. Nina Simone says:

    The fashion is such a dud tonight. Complete snooze fest. I feel like they aren’t even trying anymore.

    • BellaBella says:

      I told a friend the theme was dark and sparkly with the dresses and suits for the women. With some outliers.

      The men were all boring except for Wesley Snipes and Billy Porter.

  34. Sidewithkids says:

    HW is still stuck in early 2000s. The GGs confirm that. Where are the POCs tonight? Ava Duvernay didn’t even get a nomination, how sad and pathetic is that? No one really cares about these white actors now in their 50s who aren’t really that talented but try very hard to make us believe they are and still giving awards to toxic white men like Tarantino for subpar work and standing Os to a man who isn’t even kind to his own children and mother of his children. It’s so messed up. They learned nothing from the Harvey Weinstein incident. Nothing at all.

  35. Dal says:

    Joker was trash ? No and love the host. Tells it like it is

  36. Sidewithkids says:

    So they just gave standing Os to everybody b/c Joaquin got one too. *rolls eyes*. The GGs are a mess and need to be revamped.

  37. Casey says:

    I must admit I really adore Rooney Mara & Joaquin Phoenix as a couple. I’ve never seen Rooney really smile…ever!..over the years but boy o boy does she light up (and even smile on the RED CARPET??) when she’s with him. JPhoenix always looks at her adoringly. I remember him on a talkshow saying awkwardly in his Joaquin-Phoenix-like way, “she’s the first girl I ever looked up on the internet”. It was so endearing the weird way it came out of him. There are really cute pics of them on the GG carpet, Jezebel has one for an article header. They really do seem to be quite in love – I’m glad, they are two odd birds who found each other & can appreciate each other’s eccentricity lol

  38. Casey says:


    Awkwafina made history, she’s the first asian to ever win the lead actress award


    a woman won Best Score (Joker) for the first time ever

    love love love it, we have a long way to go to parity but YAAAS LADIES 👏👏

  39. TG says:

    Yay Joaquin. A great actor and a great guy.

  40. Nina Simone says:

    Yay for succession !!!

  41. Severine says:

    Nicole keeps getting work done on her face but never gets her crooked nostrils fixed? Why is that? Outfit reminds me of “You’ve Got Mail” when Meg Ryan throws on her trench coat when Tom Hanks comes to her apartment. It’s like she was hanging out in a t-shirt and jeans and then realized she had an awards ceremony to go to so she threw on the coat at the last minute. Epic fail.

  42. pupax says:

    Frak’s sake, leave your face alone. Wrinkles >>>> looking like a deranged muppet. Stop it!
