The Fug Girls Live-Blog the Golden Globes Red Carpet

Sure, everyone goes nuts for the Oscars, but tonight's Golden Globes is our personal favorite. And not just because of the legendary open bar, although that certainly helps. No, it's because the Globes go ahead and stick the world's biggest movie stars into the exact same room as TV's A-listers, like the Emmys and the Oscars all rolled up into one and then dunked in bourbon. Where else would you see Jessica Chastain rubbing shoulders with Matt LeBlanc (other than, perhaps, SoulCycle)? Please, join us as we live-blog tonight's Golden Globes red carpet arrivals, and pray for all manner of crazy celebrity collisions (Archie Panjabi, meet Tommy Lee Jones — go!) and some even crazier outfits. We're so excited that we're not even mad about missing Downton Abbey, and that's saying something. (EDITORS NOTE: The red carpet is over, but head on over to Vulture's live blog of the show, and also see all the looks the Fugs dissected on The Cut's comprehensive red-carpet gallery as well as their picks for the best and worst dressed!)

And that seems to be it? Can't believe E! didn't manage to get Anne Hathaway up in that business. Maybe she and Ryan are in a secret feud. Cross your fingers that they wrestle at the Oscars. See you then!

Kidman is up! She looks totally fine, in McQueen except her midrift has gone insane and is sheer.-ish? She is also sporting a kicky bob, and it's nice to see her look less severe than usual. Affleck and Garner have arrived; she seems to be wearing red sequined. We're going to have to wait to see them, because Ryan is talking to Adele, who looks exactly the way you imagine Adele looking at all times. Seriously.

IT'S HAMM-ER TIME. We're sorry. But we are excited to see Jon Hamm, who looks very handsome as usual. Jennifer Westfeldt is wearing -- WAIT. Sorry, you guys. We can't talk about Westfeldt because we just saw Rachel Weisz and SHE LOOKS INSANE INSANE. INSANNNNNE. The dress goes sheer below the knee and it is a horror show.

Taylor Swift looks very adult in a slinky -- and, ugh, fishtail hemmed -- eggplant gown; Julianne Moore looks steller in a black & white structured number. (Taylor has been yammering about her Hunger Games song, also, for like twenty minutes.)

And we are back, sadly sans Kidman information. Instead, Ryan is with Amanda Seyfried whose dress is the exact same color as her skin. Ryan pulls in Hugh Jackman and wife, who always seems like a blast. We would probably be incredibly cheery all the time if we were married to Hugh Jackman, also.

Jennifer Lawrence just refused to take Seacrest's hands, because she has the flu and doesn't want to get him sick. Her bodice is wonky, but her heart is in the right place.

Emily Blunt is wearing a monokini-style gold beaded thing that is maybe not the best thing she's ever put on her body; across the carpet, Rosario Dawson's wearing a blue gown that is certainly too tight.

G has the Michael J Fox family, in part because his son Sam is Mr Golden Globe. He is also a mini-Michael J, which makes us happy because Michael J is awesome. Ryan, on the other hand, has Jessica Chastain, who is sporting a mint dress that is a little weirdly droopy?

God bless Lucy Liu for wearing something interesting, always. Her fishtail braid is out of control -- it is insane -- but her giant flowered ball gown is at least memorable. In the background, the crowds are seriously losing their MINDS. Who is there?! It sounds like the Beatles.

Okay, having said that, speaking of what the people probably want: Bradley Cooper. He's got his Hangover III swoopy hair going, and is handsome in a standard tux. He also towers over Seacrest in a way that does not suggest that Cooper is actually TALL, but that Seacrest is as wee as you imagine.

Amy and Tina! Amy is in a low-cut tuxedo jacket and cropped pants with bangin' strappy tall heels. We are divided on it overall, but agree that Amy needs some dark sexy lipstick to sell it.

Let us take a moment during this commercial break to discuss the Accu-Check Nano commercial, where some girl basically sings a perky pop love song to her blood-sugar tester. This ad actually exists. You could plug in the words "My Little Pony" for "Accu-Check Nano" and it would make sense.

She traditionally doesn't have great luck when she picks sleeker things (see: the pantsuit thing she wore to the Girls premiere recently). We thought it was a very nice choice, although we did wish her hair had a bit more volume to match. Just a tousle or two maybe.

The thing is, Kelly Osbourne is WAY sassier than this, we just know it. There is NO WAY she actually thinks all these gowns are "beautiful" and "fabulous." And we cannot get over how horrible Giuliana looks - like she recently Hulked out and it tore up parts of the top of her dress.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus looks great, which is true almost always. Hayden Panettiere would have looked so much better if not for the ruffly fishtail hem that ruins the line of her beaded gown. We are so over fishtails. Those don't count as a source of your Omega-3s, y'all.

Zooey Deschanel's dress color is nice -- kind of a burnt orange, maybe? -- but she seems to struggle with necklines. Yet again we want to hike this up an inch. She also has on nail art of film cameras and strips, which all fit together into a continuous piece. That is the dreaded "adorkable -- totally nerdy, yet dammit, totally cute. They relive a moment where her dress at the Emmys got stuck to Lucy Liu's, which was pretty hilarious. If you're going to hook yourself to anyone...

Megan Fox is in blush, which is better on her with the dark hair than it was on Amy Adams. Megan Fox also says that BAG picks out her clothes because she trusts his opinions.
