Julianne Moore wore a Chanel sack dress to the Critics Choice: amazing or blah?

Given the SAG Award nominations’ complete lack of love for May December, it feels like Natalie Portman is maybe phasing out her awards-show appearances. Julianne Moore is not! She and Charles Melton attended the Critics Choice Awards, although their film was once again blanked for awards. I enjoyed May December but I also sort of think that there are more worthy awards nominees, but we’ll see. I still feel like Melton should get an Oscar nom. Meanwhile, Julianne wore this glorious Chanel sack dress! Melton’s (zoot) suit is Valentino.

Camila Morrone also wore Chanel – she’s a lovely young woman with a great figure, and I have no idea why Chanel gave her a dress which makes her look pregnant.

Matt Bomer. Just… Matt Bomer. What a beautiful man. A vampire! He and his Fellow Travelers costar Jonathan Bailey kissed on the lips when Bailey won his award. It was HOT.

Elizabeth Debicki in an Oscar de La Renta jumpsuit. Not gonna lie, she phoned this in. She’s probably saving her best look for tonight’s Emmys.

Juno Temple in a simple black down. It’s pretty crazy to watch Ted Lasso get completely blanked at the Critics Choice and Golden Globes. The Bear is the hot new show, plus it feels like people were really upset with how Ted Lasso’s final season went down. I wonder if the show will be blanked at the Emmys tonight?

    I didn’t even finish watching the final season of Ted Lasso, just switched to reading recaps midway through. Such a disappointment.

  2. I love the sack dress. I can never look at her without picturing her naked flying through the air with paint brushes and then being gently hoisted down.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      Ha – I remember that scene, too!! She was fearless 😊 Love the sack dress, it looks comfortable but still elegant.
      Melton’s suit is fantastic 🤩

  3. Marley says:

    I love a dress with pockets!

  4. BQM says:

    I like Elizabeth’s outfit here more than her Globesone.

    Julianne looks comfy. May December really should’ve come out next year. So many good movies getting buried. People say there’s superhero fatigue but they’re still pulling in hundreds of millions. There was Barbenheimer and other big movies. There’s just a lack of space whereas the opposite will be true this year due to the strikes.

    Not gonna lie. Elizabeth Debicki could wear a burlap bag and look simply beautiful 🤩. I think I’m getting a serious girl crush on her.

    • DeeSea says:

      Right there with you @Brassy Rebel! Every time I see Elizabeth Debicki, I’m completely mesmerized. Also, I love the smoky eye that she’s wearing here.

  6. Marie says:

    As someone who struggled but ultimately finished the last season of Ted Lasso, I’d say they deserve all the blanks they have been getting. Season 3 was a wreck and the only bright star in it was Phil Dunster. If there was any justice, he will win the Emmys tonight and Ebon will rightly get his for Season 2 of the Bear next year.

  7. Josephine says:

    Love the color of Julianne’s dress and I think she looks great. I love the sack dress!!

  8. Miranda says:

    I’m gonna get a lawyer and sue Chanel for dressing Julianne Moore in one of the gowns that my cousin and I created with bedsheets and our grandma’s gaudy costume brooches when we were 7.

    Really though, it sometimes seems like a lot of Chanel designs are actively TRYING to be unflattering. I don’t know how else you explain what they did to poor Camila here.

    • Sass says:

      @miranda agree. This looks like a duvet cover with a brooch attached. Yikes on bikes.

      I love Debicki’s look though – wow!

  9. Valerié says:

    I’m I the only one getting suspicious about Jonathan showing up for Matt on all of the awards ceremonies? Is it normal being that supportive of your co-star, or does this look that there’s something going on betweeen the two of them?

  10. Ameerah M says:

    Not feeling Matt Bomer’s cumberbund. Ruins the whole look. But Jonathan Bailey…damn that man looked fine.

  11. JaneS says:

    Matt Boomer and Jonathan Bailey are both looking movie star handsome. Faces! Wow.
    Bailey has the better outfit, Boomer looks good in color but it’s looking more 1970’s colored prom tux vs. luxury tux.
    Too bad.

    Bailey had better book himself work like crazy for the next 2-5 years, he seems at the height of his looks. Make your $$ now.
    Rege Jean Page, S1 star of Bridgerton better get moving too, his career is cooling down quickly after the big splash.

    Julianne Moore, should be angry at her stylist. Trash bag dress. Ugly.

  12. Noodle says:

    Jonny Bailey definitely deserved that award. Seeing him in this role, then Anthony in Bridgerton, then the role on Crashing (one of Phoebe Waller Bridge’s earlier series), you can see what an amazing actor he is. I’m disappointed Bomer wasn’t nominated because he was excellent in Fellow Travelers too. The series itself is super depressing but given the scenarios (Lavender Scare, AIDS epidemic), I don’t think it could be anything other than just tragically sad. Jonny Bailey is on his way up, but hopefully not too up, because viewers need him on Bridgerton!

    • ElbaQ says:

      Matt Bomer actually was nominated for the Lead role but lost to Steven Yeun in Beef. I personally think Matt had the more complex part and did crazy good job (didn’t know he had it in him), but Beef is a huge hit and Netflix is unbeatable at campaigning.

      • Noodle says:

        I didn’t realize he’d been nominated. I feel like the CCAs aren’t mentioned as much as some of the other awards. thank you for correcting me.

  13. smee says:

    No noms for Juno, Hamm and Fargo is crazy.

  14. blue says:

    Julianne makes a semi-odd dress work & i covet that brooch!
    Glad she’s in a strong color. The off-whites & beiges she often wears wash her out.

  15. Veronica S. says:

    The sack dress would be better with a more flowy material, but the color is gorgeous, and she looks comfortable. Which…at her age, I’d say f*ck it, too. Why starve yourself into a tight outfit at that point? She’s already thin. No need to dehydrate herself to prove it. Wear something that flows and forgives.

    I have to say, the men actually kind of won this round? Some well fitted suits here with some bold colors. Nice choices on their part, since they’re bound to want to go more traditional for the bigger shows that are more black tie.
