Hope for Hollywood, Comparisons between 2016 vs 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Jamie presents at 2016 Golden Globe

Since time immemorial, nothing has made more buzz than an awards show, the four major ones being the Oscar’s, the Grammy’s, the Golden Globe Award and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.   This year’s 73 third and last years 72nd Golden Globe Awards stood out for comparison. Both of course were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills and both in January as usual but that is where the similarities ended.  As we’ve said before and it bears saying again, it is indeed a night of glamour in celebration of the industry’s finest and most talented celebrities but something seemed very different this year.

The Golden Globe Award is not only the night we want to know if our bets bagged their deserving nominations, not only was this a night we waited for laughs as the  raunchy but hilarious Ricky Gervais strived to compare to the always hard act to follow duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler,  the hosts of last years show, their last year to do so, not only did last year prove that Robert Downey Jr might only get hotter with age, but it also is a night most of us look forward to being a night of fashion and beauty that sets the hottest trends. This is the year we saw some real evidence that the Golden Globe Award has taken over the mantel from the Oscars at least from the perspective of reflecting the diversity that exists in America and the world.

We love our old Hollywood classic and timeless looks which never goes wrong the best. Elegant updos that show of the classy chic you really are makes it second.

The Golden Globe Awards truly is an event watched by the lions share of TV viewers and without a doubt, everyone surely had their fill for their insatiable appetite for fashion, beauty and fun that day.  It is so gratifying to also know that it is a show that reflects the talent that exists in Hollywood amongst all of the members of SAG.  Watch out for our favorite black and brunette hairstyle trends as they make their way in fashion and beauty magazines and blogs alike in the coming year.
