those awards ceremonies. this one to me was one of the best i thought from the hosts to the speeches to the awards. didn't you think? it was -- >> i thought it was hit and miss. >> did you? >> hit and miss. i thought that tina and amy were terrific. i thought they were -- a lot of people either loved, you know, what's his face last year. >> ricky gervais. >> that wasn't nice. you know what i mean. or felt he crossed the line. >> these guys walked the line perfectly. let's watch. >> catherine bigelow nominated tonight. [ applause ] i haven't really been following the controversy over "zero dark 30" but when it comes to torture, i trust the lady who spent three years married to james cameron. >> "hunger games" was where you know of the biggest fames of the year and also what i call the six weeks it took me to get into this dres.
>> ang lee has been nominated for best director for the life of pi, which is what i'm going to call the next six weeks after i take this dress off. >> it was fun to see two women. they obviously love each other and bounce off of each other so beautifully. there were very few moments where i didn't think they clicked or it didn't work. >> we wanted more. that's what you wanted. i'm so happy for ben affleck for winning for "argo," but i have to say "lincoln" had seven nominations, and they got robbed. >> you thought it did. >> it got -- >> you have been screaming about it. a lot of people thought he got robbed because he didn't get an oscar nomination, meaning ben affleck. >> at the globes you're nominated for seven, and "lincoln" got one? that is -- >> you would have to talk to the people who nominated it and -- see, i haven't seen "argo" yet. i saw "lincoln" yesterday. i really, really loved it. it was sensational. if you love those kindof things, can i recommend a movie that i think i loved even more on the same -- pretty much the same subject. there's a movie called "amazing
grace" about a man named william wilb wilburforth who personally led a 20-year battle to get rid of the slave trade in britain. he was a member of parliament. it's a brilliant movie. michael abtett directed it. it's so, so good. you know, all that happened, i think, some 20 some years even before it happened in our country, so -- i loved "lincoln", and i agree it's a magnificent piece of work, and speilberg is hard to beat. he didn't win last year for "warhorse" either. >> is he going to win the oscar. how about that? how about that? >> i'm at a loss. i haven't seen "argo." but i will see it. >> i thought christian wigg and will ferrell were funny together. >> it went on a little long. i thought a couple of the ladies that were nominated were not thrilled about it, but i thought it was clever. well executed. >> watch. >> emily blunt. emily blunt. salmon fishing in the yemen. >> emily blunt, always beautiful. >> beautiful.
>> always amazing. >> when the salmon are coming out. >> comes out. >> they -- >> and when the bad guy comes and the one salmon is -- >> and the salmon is like -- and you're in yemen. >> the whole spoof. they hadn't seen any of the movies. >> very, very cute. it was a get out of here. >> it was genius. all right. >> ben seemed very, very surprised. ben to us. i have never met him, but i like him. so surprised he left out a couple thank yous in his speech. >> look, i don't care what the award is. when they put your name next to the names that she just read off it's an extraordinary thing in your life. >> before i present the award, my husband forgot a couple of people. grant hesloff and george clooney, without whom he cannot have made the movie. the best producers in the world,
and he asked me to mention that. thank you, grant and george. >> that's sweet. >> i love their relationship. >> i do too. >> that seems such a -- it was interesting to see jennifer lopez come up looking so va va voom but knowing that she went through that time with him. >> that was weird. >> didn't work for either one of them. to see him so settled and doing so well and just loving fatherhood and -- you know what, she's on my list of one of the people that's the most gorgeous. jennifer garner. what a lady. see the little waist on her after three children. stop it. >> speaking about a little waist, claire danes. >> one month. >> boy, she won for "homeland." they swept. i am going to have to start watching it. she lost that baby weight so quickly. she looked beautiful. congrats to her. "les miz" won for best motion picture comedy or musical. >> hugh jackman, i'm so happy for him. ann hathaway, i did see hers. >> they did -- >> she won, and nobody was surprised. jennifer lawrence won. she seemed adorable. i didn't know she was fighting the flu. that's another movie i want to
see very badly. best actress went -- actor went to daniel day lewis. i'm so glad i saw "lincoln" yesterday. every time that man picks up a script, you might as well before you even does the filming, give him the oscar. the man is amazing. like meryl streep. >> i loved kate hudson's dress. >> a lot of people did. >> she stepped occupy that stage, and you just went, like, oh, my gosh. >> you're not going according to what we're supposed to be doing. >> whatever. i loved her dress. >> i love the whole line tv. i wish her hair had been up so we could see that neckline a little better. she looks sensational. >> who did you like some. >> you know what, everybody is talking -- i loved -- i loved -- we're going to talk out in los angeles. i thought that -- a lot of people didn't like her dress.
i thought lucy lu looked gorgeous. it was so different from everybody. i thought maybe it's because i hate winter so much, it was so spring-like, and i loved the way she wore her hair to the side. it was just -- she looked so feminine and so lovely, and she was here recently, and i didn't really know and we both liked her so much. >> prints aren't easy. >> sometimes that affects you. everybody kept saying you should have waited around to see julia roberts at the end of the telecast. i want to see how gorgeous -- i can't tell from that. >> you can. >> no, i really can't. >> what are you talking about? >> at this distance i would have said no. >> but she -- >> no. no. i'm sure if i saw it closer up that i -- sorry. >> some people say the most interesting speech of the night didn't go to any of the people who won golden globes, but to the woman who won the cecil b. demill lifetime achievement award. some people were confused. some people loved it and hated it. some were all of those. let's watch. >> i guess i just have a sudden urge to say something that i have never really been able to air in public, so declaration that i'm a little nervous about, but maybe not quite as nervous as my public list right now.
hi, jennifer. but, you know, i'm just going to put it out there right loud and proud, right? i'm going to need your support on this. i am single. >> so the audience laughs because the audience -- well, i'm not going to say anything but the audience has known about jodi's life and lifestyle for a long, long time. and they love her. >> i think she was making a statement sort of like why does everyone have to have a news conference or reality show to announce their, you know, sexuality or whatever, and she seemed to be having fun with it i thought. right? >> yeah. you got to. i mean, you are what you are, right? >> yes, indeedy. >> even you, hodie are what you are. >> i am what i am. in case you are marking your calendars, the royal baby is on the way. it makes its appearance in july. >> good for them. and they are saying baby. >> what does that mean? >> not twins? >> there was some speculation that perhaps it was twins because she had that hyper emisis ravaderum. sounds like something they would say on "harry potter."
the new prince or princess could share a birthday with william's mother who was born on july 1st. >> we have a very, very, cool thing we're doing on this program. we're doing it with johnson's baby. you know how willard scott has the smuckers jar for the people that are 100 years old. >> people like me and frank. >> we're going to celebrate new moms. >> babies. >> tell us about that. >> yeah. each week we're going to feature some new additions to families. send us a photo of the birth date, height and weight and some words of wisdom about parenthood and get creative there. you can be silly, whatever. you'll have a chance of having your baby's photo broadcast on our show beginning next friday january 25th. for all the details, head to our website at klgandhoda.com. >> that's awesome. >> fun day monday. what do you have for your favorite thing? >> i don't have anything for my favorite thing. >> good, because i have two. >> excellent. >> the first one is this. i told you last week about wise

they made their decisions, and the clothes really had to make that statement, so couldn't be about the weather. >> all right. you loved, loved, loved jessica chastain. tell us about her dress and why you loved it. >> it's a difficult dress in the front, but it has a beautiful, beautiful pale blue color that just goes so gorgeously against her skin. she has almost luminous skin. the dress moved around later on in the evening, but the beginning it just laid perfectly. she has won calvin klein before, and i think it goes with her red hair with those lovely harry winston diamonds. it just created a great stark and very modern look for her. >> she's such a young, beautiful girl that for me it made it look like she was bosom-heavy and she was hanging there. she's not. she has a great body. >> the dress actually got sort of lower during the course of the evening, and i think maybe there should be somebody around to help her adjust it. you can only say so much. >> if black and white is in,
then julieann moore hit it. she had that long pretty dress. >> i thought -- >> was that armani. >> it was tom ford. >> tom ford, right. loo tom is a great friend of hers. yeah. and it just -- it had -- it had elegance. it had maturity. it had maternity. it's everything we love at "in style." the bulgari jewelry just perfectly accented it. she looks magnificent to me. >> jennifer lawrence was fighting the flu, but she wore a lot of color, so it made her look like she was feeling good. >> that's a pretty dress. >> it was -- but she -- she
literally was choking on the red carpet. she was so uncomfortable. it's a great red dior dress. the top of it is a little bit odd, and i think with the belt there's a lot going on, but she's so statuesque, and her hair was beautifully done with the great knotted bun. she was on the "in style" facebook red carpet talk meeting that we developed just for the night. she was the most buzzed about star. >> oh, good. >> all right. we're going to flip over now. we're going to talk to bobbie thomas. >> hello, bobbie girl. >> you have an interesting project that you've undertaken, haven't you? tell us. >> i wanted to mix things up. i was watching the red carpet last night like millions of people watching now, and i asked the question, what if? i wanted to restyle some of the looks with the help of photo shop, and first up, we have amanda seigfreid. today a lot of tweeted last night and on my twitter handle saying she looked a little washed out. i know the actress wanted to be soft, but i wanted to see what this gown would look like many some pastel colors, and i think -- i would love to hear what everybody at home thinks. go on to our website to tell us. i photoshopped her in some of the soft pastel colors, and i personally lot of the blue.
i really thought it would pick up her eyes, and there's a way to go soft without having to do something that's really, really fair on fair skin. >> all right. what do you think, ladies? you like? you like the blush? >> i think she's gorgeous that way. it's so -- >> okay. so moving on, zosha, i really loved this sleek dress. this was tony ward. the one thing i wanted to see was a little more balance in the face. minimalism is a big trend on the runway, so i added a pop of color on the lip. take a look. >> yes. >> yeah. >> yeah. better. >> it just balances out. >> the hair is kind of severe too with the same severity of the dress. >> you took the words out of my mouth. if you are going to keep everything really severe with the hair and make-up, just adding a little femininity with the color. i think lipstick went a long way. i wanted to know if julia luis dreyfuss and connie were to switch dresses. >> why? >> julia is a petite frame, and
connie is taller, and she's got that long and lean straight body, which is great, but i thought connie could use the curve of julia's dress. >> i like it better. >> this was the difference. do you like this better? >> i like that better. >> keep in mind, if you are taller go ahead and go for the more volumonous dress, and, you know, julia usually always wears sleek dresses like this. >> she's got a great body. >> she really does. >> she needs to show that off. so the next julian huff, when i first saw her look, i have to say i saw it from here up. i thought, oh, my gosh, this is beautiful, so edgy but fresh. so, unfortunately, the bottom half for me was a little distracting. i wanted to see -- >> much better. >> if we just streamlined it down. again -- >> i would have preferred it without any feathers at all. she's so young and so lovely, she can wear anything she wants. >> so beautiful. it was a punk princess moment, so it definitely was a look, and i like it, but i thought -- >> it's a little bork-like. remember when bork -- >> you have to give her fashion points for taking a risk. so next, you were talking about
lucy lu's dress. sorry, halle berry first. halle berry is wearing versace. we have a cut-out here at the hip. i would rather see it in a solid or darker color. let's take a look. i thought the darker color or something that wasn't as busy with the pattern and the cut-out might be a little better. what do you think? >> it's hard for her not to look utterly spectacular. >> she's stunning. >> right? >> she knows how to place her body for maximum effect. some of the actresses wear beautiful clothes, but they stand there in ways that aren't flattering. she always knows how to work it on the carpet. >> i don't see the cut-outs though. i wasn't crazy about those. >> it washes out a little bit with the print. i agree with you, kathie. she's so stunning, she could wear anything. >> i like her hair short, really short. >> bobbie, that was fun. did you have fun doing it? >> we didn't get to -- >> i thought she looked drop dead. okay. >> i loved the print, and i wanted to see another. we'll show it online.
