You know what didn’t register with me until just now? Awkwafina won Best Actress is a comedy/musical for her performance in The Farewell, which is more of a sad family drama. Then Renee Zellweger won Best Actress in a drama for Judy, where she sings and dances. Hollywood! Anyway, yes, it looks like Renee really is the frontrunner in the Best Actress race and I’m not thrilled about it. I thought Judy looked terrible from the trailers, but having watched it… it’s okay. It’s not the best movie, but it’s not the worst. Same for Renee’s performance – something like 90% of her performance is the excellent Judy Garland wig and the fact that Renee completely nailed Judy’s posture. The rest of it… the story, the script, the supporting performances, it’s all just kind of mediocre. Still, Renee showed up in a weak year, so good for her. She wore this lovely Armani gown which is reminiscent of all those Carolina Herrera gowns she used to wear. Question: Was Renee drunk as f–k?

Renee’s biggest actress competitions, it would seem, are Saoirse Ronan and Scarlett Johansson. I was a little bit surprised the HFPA didn’t give it to ScarJo, if I’m being honest. ScarJo wore Vera Wang and she just looks EXHAUSTED. Is it bad makeup or is she just really tired at the moment? The gown is taffeta and prom-y and whatever. Saoirse Ronan wore Celine and I felt like she really phoned it in. Her fashion has not been great throughout the Little Women promo. Who would have thought that these two would be so underwhelming.

    Ser-sha just pips it for me

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Saoirse looked lovely from the neck up. To be honest, if the dress was in a jewel tone, I’d love it. But she seems to favour tones that blend into her skin and hair, making her a tonal monotone.

      Hated Renee’s hair, but he gown was gorgeous and fitted to a T. And yeah, she was slurring her words and 3 1/2 shades to a 4 shade wind. Drunk as F*** lol. Couldn’t remember what she wanted to say at one point and went blank.

      SarJo… well, her makeup was nice this time (much more subtle this time) and the Jewelry was great, Beautiful color on her…meh on the dress (and still hate her engagement ring lol)

      I am just really happy Akwafina won! She stole the movie in CRA, and loved her in The Farewell.

      • Lady2Lazy says:

        Agree on Renee’s hair is awful and ScarJo looked like ScarryJo! The dress, her make up and her hair, awful!

  2. Bee says:

    I like some of these dresses but the styling at this years GG is terrible.

    • BellaBella says:

      I thought Saoirse looked stunning and chic. Very Carole Lombard.

      I don’t know if Renee was drunk but I appreciated hearing her Texas accent. It really bothered me when the orchestra started to play over her. Same with when Michelle spoke.

  3. Flamingo says:

    Another site had some close ups of Scarlett’s face, I think she’s gone in for some recent tweaking. Or maybe the hair was just doing her no favors.

  4. BANANIE says:

    Scarlett’s face looked exhausted and honestly her chest looked weird? Like I think of her as buxom and hourglass but she looks all flattened out here.

    • Meg says:

      Yeah true that was my thought too

    • Antonym says:

      The fit of Scarlett’s dress is completely off. It looks like she either lost some weight too late for alterations or is disguising her figure. So anything from a bout of the stomach flu to (very early stage) pregnancy.

  5. Flying fish says:

    I wasn’t wowed by any of the dresses I’ve seen.

    • Bee says:

      The only interesting dress and worth best dressed is a few posts down…actress Joey I think her name is, wore a stunning black and white dress.
      Otherwise this GG was full of bland/awful colours, dreadful tailoring and structure, and no style or class…way to ring in 2020.

    • FHMom says:

      I liked some of the tuxes the ladies wore, but the gowns were either blah or just awful. This group here was blah.

  6. Xi says:

    Scarjo looks really bad with her hair up holy shit. The dress is fine. Renee have the best dress of the tree.
    As for the oscars I hope neither would win. Normally I’m rooting for Saoirse but she’s been so hungry for an oscar that she keeps making these OK roles. She’s such a fantastic actor and should get back to making meaty roles again and not those oscar baits.
    My pick for best actress would be awkwafina. I wish the Academy would get creative and nominate Helena Zengel from Systemsprenger.

    • MO says:

      Nominating Helena Zengel would be awsome! But you already said it, they need to be creative – so no chance…

    • Kosmos says:

      AGREED….she did not look good with her hair slicked back and up. She needs hair to frame her face; otherwise, we get this Alien look UGH…..I liked the red dress except for the plunging front, which I never like……otherwise, beautiful color for her, but somehow the dress outshined her face or makeup…..she either needed more makeup or lashes, or a different hairstyle altogether.

  7. josephine says:

    It’s like everyone had the flu. So many dull make-up jobs.

    • lucy2 says:

      Some of them may have! Seems like half the people I know were sick or getting over something in the past 2 weeks.

      • Mia4s says:

        It was announced before hand that both Christian Bale and Octavia Spencer has to cancel due to flu. Although honestly I think a lot of it was bad makeup!

        Oh and I didn’t watch the show, but that hi-def red carpet camera? (I think E had it?) That was not kind to many stars! Yikes!

  8. Chaine says:

    Scarlet’s got such a horrifically severe hairstyle going on that it looks like her hairline is receding. I think that’s why her face appears strange.

  9. Spicecake38 says:

    Renee for the win fashion wise,I guess.I really liked her in Judy- for me it was telling that my seventeen year old daughter watched this with me last Friday not even knowing who Judy Garland was,except for Over the Rainbow.Renee was just very watchable and IMO impressive in this role.
    And yes I thought she sounded pretty drunk,but didn’t make an ass of herself so,no biggie.

    • minx says:

      Agree, RZ’s dress was simple and flattering. ScarJo was trying to look sexy and IMO she flopped. Makeup and dress, nothing special.

  10. Becks1 says:

    Renee’s dress is the best because it is so simple and such a pretty color. Its not going to set any style trends or anything, or become iconic, but its pretty.

    I like Saoirse’s dress but not on her for some reason. I think it would look really good on Amy Adams.

    • Erinn says:

      I have a soft spot for Renee’s because it looks like my Jr Prom dress hahah. It was just a shade or two paler than the color hers is, and it had these sparkly little rhinestone things along the top like this one does. Mine didn’t cross over, and it also didn’t have a leg slit because this was 2005 and I was like 15. But very similar vibe haha.

      I think if Saoirse’s dress had been a different color it would have been really amazing. It’s still really pretty as-is, but it’s missing something. It WOULD look great on Amy though.

  11. Bookworm says:

    Renee’s dress looks like every dress she’s ever worn.

    I like Saoirse’s because I love metallics but it’s not fabulous.

    Hate Scarlett’s entire look.

  12. lucy2 says:

    I like Saoirse’s a lot, but I LOVE Renee’s – simple, elegant, perfectly fit.

    • Carmen says:

      RZ knows what works for her. She always goes with elegant and understated and she always pulls it off perfectly.

    • Kosmos says:

      RENEE has great legs, and she showed them off in this dress, wow……dress was simple and elegant, not sure I love light blue, but still fit her very well and suited her figure. However, she sounded so ditzy when she spoke to the audience. What was up with that???

  13. Other Renee says:

    Saoirse looks washed out. Scarjo’s dress is ok but her hair is too severe. Renee does look understated and very nice. I’m just so sick of people winning awards for playing dead people on screen. Enough already! They’re basically being rewarded for watching a lot of screen footage of someone then imitating that person. 🙄 That’s not acting; it’s doing an impersonation.

  14. anon says:

    Okay, forget the dress, the performance, the award, I don’t care.

    I just wish Renee Zellwegger would do something about her GD hair. Why does she always look like she got out of the shower, ran a man’s comb through it and gets up on stage looking all half-assed?

    Seriously, her hair makes her look like shit.

    • Elaine Stritch says:

      I agree- and I don’t hate the trend of under-styled hair! But Renee’s looks like she’s actively TRYING for awful hair. I don’t get it.

  15. Katherine Hughes says:

    Renee really seemed like she was on pills to me. Im from Texas & I thought her accent was incredibly strong! I don’t know what the hell was going on with her!

  16. Scorpio ♏️ Rants says:

    Love renees dress but hair? No

  17. Murphy says:

    maybe she really is exhausted but the combo of the dark hair and very pale under eye make up makes it worse.

  18. Pulplove says:

    I think Renée had one of the better-looking dresses. I love the cut, but am uncertain about liking the colour on her. Anyway, she’s got a great figure and nice legs.

  19. Jane says:

    Renee killed it in this dress! Perfecto!!

  20. Blerg says:

    Has Renee become more Texan? I don’t remember the accent being so strong before. Was she putting it on? I feel confused. Also, her peers’ face expressions did not seem friendly towards her. Is that just how they were for everyone? Is blasé in? I loved her dress. She did seem doped up.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      I think her altered state may have brought the Texas out. I noticed the chilly vibe from the crowd as well. They were also like this for Joaquin s speech. I got the feeling neither are well liked among their peers.

      • BellaBella says:

        The audience had a chilly vibe to Michelle as well. No one stopped to congratulate her when she walked to the podium.

  21. JanetFerber says:

    Renee won everything that night, the award, the best dress, the best fit and the best comeback ever. Yes!

  22. Mgsota says:

    I thought Renee looked so beautiful! She went through so many years of bad plastic surgery that I was genuinely happy to see her looking so good and like herself! She must have found a better cosmetic surgeon. Her arms looked great too.
    Saoirse is a goddess.

  23. Lipreng says:

    Yes, Renee seemed drunk (or worse) and her speech came off as really bitter and resentful. Her dress was amazing though.

  24. kerwood says:

    I was happy that Renee won. I fell in love with her after watching ‘The Whole Wide World’ with Vincent D’onofrio and still have a fondness for her. I also make a point of avoiding a lot of her films.

    I’m not surprised she was drunk (if she was) it’s a long boring evening and there’s lots of yummy champagne on the tables.

    I loved Renee during her Herrara period so I liked her look. And compared to some of the horror shows that worked the red carpet, she is definitely a contender for best dressed.

  25. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    They’re good. Nothing awful in this group.

  26. SM says:

    I like Rene’s dress. Her hair on the other hand looks like she was brought to the awards show on a scooter with no helmet on.

  27. A says:

    Saoirse looks lovely. Renee’s dress looks good, no comment on other things. Scarlett looks bad cause shes not wearing enough make up. This natural look or whatever it is doesn’t suit her, her necklace is the saving grace of her look.

  28. ChillyWilly says:

    Renee was so wasted. I got a Xanax mixed with booze vibe from her. I was embarrassed for her. She seems like she may need some help.

  29. Bahare says:

    Rene’ s dress was a winner because the fit and tailoring was great. I have always wondered why so many people at these events are beautiful with access to the best fashion and stylists but very few of these dresses are properly tailored. Cuffs dragging in the mud and even showing every bad stitch on a hem. My friends granddad was an old world tailor and said it was too painful to look. Cut and fit are everything.

  30. Normades says:

    Awkwafina FTW. I haven’t seen ANY of the movies but out of the big acting awards she was the funniest and most professional.

  31. I absolutely loved Sofia Vergara’s gown – she looked stunning in it.

  32. EveV says:

    I love Renee’s dress but I could not even make it through her whole speech, there was so much second hand embarrassment. She was definitely wasted and nobody in the room wanted to hear what she had to say, it seemed like.

  33. Kyra WEGMAN says:

    Renee’s speech was….awful. Husk of a person with nothing to say except to thank her agents. Yuck. Nice dress.
