Golden Globes 2015: Diversity Edition

Awards Season: looking at crazy dresses and drinking every time someone almost forgets to thank their spouse or significant other.

So the Golden Globes happened, and you might have reacted like Jessica Chastain or Don Cheadle during most of the show.


While we could spend hours debating the merits of the hosting, the humor, and the whole spectacle, let’s just take a moment to focus on some things that made the night wonderful.


Salma Hayek made me want to be a fancy couch covered in plastic in your Nana’s sitting room.


Lupita Nyong’o made me wish it was spring, and I have the worst allergies ever so that actually is a huge compliment.

This involves eating her feelings, drowning in debt and mocking infomercials. She likes sociology so much that she has two degrees in it, and is still warding off her parents' questions about a real career.

Loved Salma Hayek’s dress, did not understand the belt. And she was not the only one who did it! It was like, “Well, it’s only the Globes, but I want to wear a ball gown…I know, I’ll dress it down with a belt!” You are wearing a freaking amazing ball gown! Own it! Do not turn it into a casual ball gown. There is no such thing as a casual ball gown.
