You can tell a lot about a Golden Globes nominee’s fashion poise by how she exits her limo. Not surprisingly, Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara — wearing a Zac Posen with a painted on bodice — anxiously adjusted her copious cleavage in the reflection of her car, while Cate Blanchett of Blue Jasmine regally swanned from a backseat in a high-necked, lace Armani Prive gown with nary an adjustment. Wouldn’t it have been fun if the Hollywood Foreign Press Association forced the two to switch dresses?

But let’s get right down to business. Best dressed at this year’s ceremony? Hands down, Lupita Nyong’o in a vibrant red Ralph Lauren column dress with an architectural cape. The contrast of the sleek, minimal design with the blinding color highlighted her complexion and chiseled beauty. A close second would be Blanchett’s breathtaking confection of delicate lace with a sculpted open back. Black, which can feel so funereal on a red carpet, becomes a light, airy option with a full skirt of frothy tulle and shimmering black Swarovski crystals.

On their four-inch heels were Olivia Wilde in sequined Gucci maternity wear (reminiscent of Angelina Jolie’s Atelier Versace look in 2011), nominee Taylor Swift channeling Grace Kelly in a color blocked cherry and black Carolina Herrera and Naomi Watts in a molten silver Tom Ford with a gold crystal collar and sultry cut-outs. Amy Adams’ Valentino get up — replete with a capelet in a ’70s palette of rust, red and clementine — had a bold, retro coked up feel that felt right in step with American Hustle and flattered her slight upper frame.

On to the plus-size ladies — a genre that better mirrors us mortal viewers. Plus, it’s always refreshing to see an actress on the red carpet who weighs more than a wet Cavalier King Charles spaniel. Lena Dunham of Girls highlighted her curves expertly in a clingy, citron-yellow Zac Posen, while Melissa McCarthy outlined her silhouette in a black gown bisected with silver edging that looked a bit like a crop circle of paper clips. (Her 2012 Marina Rinaldi dress still stands out as a favorite because she accentuated her shape with an empire waist.) Read More »

Two couples. Multiple attractions. Plenty of beer. What could go possibly wrong? The relationship comedy Drinking Buddies follows a pair of Chicago craft brewery co-workers (Jake Johnson and Olivia Wilde) whose best-friends status veers toward flirtation as another pair (Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston) complicates things. Writer-director … Read More »
Back at SXSW to premiere his 14th feature, Drinking Buddies writer-director Joe Swanberg brought something new to the festival: A movie with name stars, a polished look, and mainstream sales potential. The relationship comedy stars Tron: Legacy‘s Olivia Wilde and New Girl‘s Jake Johnson as a pair of Chicagoan craft brewery co-workers whose platonic friendship veers toward flirtation. Ron Livingston and Anna Kendrick co-star as their respective significant others in the pic which marks Swanberg’s first modestly-budgeted (vs. micro-budgeted) feature.
Drinking Buddies has a more traditional look than Swanberg’s previous mumblecore releases thanks to Beasts Of The Southern Wild DP Ben Richardson. It was entirely improvised as the cast worked from Swanberg’s outline. “Putting dialogue in somebody else’s mouth has always seemed strange to me. The writing process shifted to the editing, so that’s when the script gets written”, Swanberg explained after Saturday’s premiere. Read More »

EXCLUSIVE: There will be a major new female addition to Fox’s House this fall. Odette Annable, who co-starred on another Fox series this past season — the midseason comedy Breaking In — is joining the veteran medical drama as a new series regular, the first regular addition to the cast since the promotion of Olivia Wilde, Peter Jacobson and Kal Penn in Season 4. But fans of Breaking In shouldn’t fret that this might be the nail in the coffin of the underrated comedy starring Christian Slater and Bret Harrison. There is time carved into Annable’s deal for House that would allow her to also do Breaking In should Fox opt to pick up the series for a second season. Producers are keeping details about Annable’s character on House under wraps, but I hear that she meets Dr. Gregory House in prison. As our sister site TVLine recently reported, House will find himself behind bars at the opening of the new season after driving his car into Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein)’s living room in the May Season 7 finale. I hear Annable will play a doctor at the prison whom House recruits to be a new member of his team of diagnosticians, which means that House will likely return to Princeton-Plainsboro pretty quickly after his stint in the slammer. With Wilde, who plays fellow former jailbird Thirteen, busy in features, she is not expected to be in every episode of House next season. And with original co-star Edelstein making a surprising exit after last season and Amber Tamblyn ending her recurring stint, for now Annable will be the only full-time female cast member next season.
