2016 SAG AWARDS ...

I'm a little late with this post and I banged it out really fast so forgive me if I did not include some of your favorites.  And as always feel free to comment ...

Alicia Vikander.  I don't know what to say about this.  It reminds me an earth toned apartment cir. 1970.  Blocks and squares in browns blacks.  She looks beautiful but this dress does nothing for me.  For such a young beauty someone should have advised her better.  Grade:  C-

Amy Pohler.  Boring, boring, boring. Gown ... boring, hair, boring, makeup boring.  No jewelry or bling for an overall look of BORING. Grade:  F-

Anna Faris.  Mhmmm ... this looks like a 1950s dressing gown.  I've never been a fan of this type of collar.  The dress needs to be pressed and is ill fitting.  The sleeves have a cuff and the shoes are all wrong.  Grade:  D-

Brie Larson.  This photo does not do the dress justice. It looks wrinkled at the lap but on camera it was beautiful.  She has a great body although when she walked that slit almost gave everyone a glimpse of her lady parts.  Also, she could have gone with better shoe.  Her make up was flawless and I thought she looked quite beautiful. Grade:  A

I LOVE CAROL BURNETT!!!  The funniest woman EVER!  AND SMART.  That is the way to go ... SLIPPERS ON THE RED CARPET.  That would be me. Gorgeous AND comfortable.  Grade:  A ... cause she's a comic genius.

Christina Hendricks.  This dress is a catastrophe.  What is that limp thing on her shoulder?  A wilted bow?  A flap of a cape?  And there's another piece of fabric that looks as if it started out as a bow and ended up as a train.  All this in a wrinkly, brocade champagne fabric.  I know vintage is a popular way to go but this looks ratty and old.  I'm going to give her a C+ and the plus is only because her hair and makeup are gorgeous.  And that bag????   Ugh.

Christina Ricci.  This dress looks like a nightgown.  An UGLY nightgown.  Pink lace with black piping and pleats.  PLEATS.  PLEATS!  Grade:  F-

Claire Danes.  I guess she looks pretty in a boring, plain, unexciting BIG YAWN kind of way.  Her husband is super cute though.  Grade: C for AVERAGE.
Diane Lane.  MY FAVORITE!  Diane always brings it and I love that she's had no work.  She looks gorgeous!  Grade:  A+ 

Eva Longoria.  First of all it looks like she didn't even wash her hair.  As for the gown, I'm not feeling it.  The color is ghastly and the entire look is lacking something.  She should have at least added some bling ... especially if she was going to go with that unwashed hair look.  Her makeup is always good, even though she tends to wear A LOT of it.  Grade:  D

Gaby Hoffmann.  OK - an interesting bit of trivia for you.  I used to work with her uncle years ago.  He is an attorney, and his sister (Gaby's mother) is Viva, Andy Warhol's muse from back in the Factory Days.  Gaby needs a make-over.  First, she seriously needs to pluck those caterpillars over her eyes.  She has an interesting face but she needs to DO SOMETHING with it.  And that hair!  Definitely in need of some layers.  And Gaby ... what's with the shoes?  Green suede?  Grade:  F

Giuliana Rancic the Human Toothpick.  I can see she's going for a 1950's Audrey Hepburn look. I guess she succeeds but she is DEFINITELY NO AUDREY HEPBURN ... not with that doe-eyed, big toothed anorexic looking face.  Grade:  F-

Helen Mirren ... WOW!!!  What a woman!  Fabulous!  Love the hair, love the jewels, love the gown, LOVE THE ENTIRE LOOK.  Grade: A+ WINNER WINNER WINNER!!!

GREAT SCOT!!  What the hell is this?!  It looks like she threw on material that had just been cut from a pattern and then she wore it unfinished and inside out!  TO AN AWARD SHOW!  It also makes her look very thick in the middle.  Grade:  F-

Lori Petty.  EYES ROLLING ok ok, you're trendy and cutting edge and you look like you're wearing a parachute.  The hair is terrible, the makeup is terrible and the glasse are terrible.  The overall look .... TERRIBLE.  Grade:  F--  DOUBLE MINUS

Rachel McAdams, OMG I love this gal.  Beautiful face, beautiful hair, beautiful gown for an overall look of BEAUTIFUL.  Grade:  A+++ WINNER WINNER WINNER!!!

I LOVE JULIANNE MOORE!  This woman is FIFTY-FIVE!!!  SHE'S INCREDIBLE!  Love her hair/makeup and the dress.  The color is fabulous on her, but unfortunately, it does add a little weight to her midsection.  Other than that, Grade:  A+

Kayley Cuoco.  Great dress.  It looks fantastic on her body and I love a black gown, but her bun looks a little lopsided and she could have blinged it up a bit with some pretty earrings instead of those little black studs.  Grade:  B

The Rooney Sisters looking like Children of the Corn ... creepy.

Don't know her name ... but she seems to be channeling Abbe Lane from her days with Xavier Cugat.  Grade:  D- 

Gotta say, Queen Latifah is looking mighty elegant.  I find this look really nice on her.  Her makeup is flawless, hair and jewels, perfection.  Grade:  A+

This gal looks like a purdy little kitty cat with a BIG OLD BOW tied at the neck.  MEOW .... Grade:  F-

Viola Davis.  AMAZING actress!  This color looks beautiful on her although I'm not feeling the gown.  Grade:  C-

And last, but not least, Susan Sarandon.  Hon, yes, you once had a great pair of jugs but now it's time to cover those babies up.  You're pushing 70 Susan.  This is not sexy, it's Rude.  Grade:  D




  1. I live for your take on awards season! LOVE YOU!!!

  2. I'm so glad I found this blog (you may be sorry, though)! I never watch the awards shows because I rarely, if ever, have seen any of the movies or shows that are nominated. That said, I do like a good fashion critique. I love this one and agree wholeheartedly! It's weird that Fashion Police didn't include most of these looks because some a sure uglier than the one's they picked! One last thought, maybe Susan Sarandon was subtly paying homage to the title SAG awards :)


  3. LOVE YOU BACK LINDA!!! It's been way too long!

  4. DEFINITELY! Hey! I shoulda thought of that LOL!

  5. Alicia Vikander. loved it! A glittering Mondrian. Loved.It.
    Amy Pohler. Drab. Mall-wear.
    Anna Faris. A 'meh' gown with stripper shoes.
    Brie Larson. I, too, was a'scurred of seeing lady bits. But I liked the rest of it.
    Carol. Cannot ever go wrong, even in slippers!
    Christina Hendricks. I don't think she's ever looked good. it's always either too much or too ill-fitting.
    Christina Ricci. Had it been shorter it could have been a Michelle Kwan skating outfit.
    Claire Danes. Dull, Claire Danes' husband, Hugh Dancy, dee-lish!
    Diane Lane. It looks like Miss Plum, in the Library, with a stylish gown.
    Eva Longoria. JLo-lite. Try hard. Try TOO hard.
    Gaby Hoffmann. In between the air and the shoes it's just okay.
    Giuliana Rancic needs a meal; a new hairdo; and a new look.
    Helen Mirren can do no wrong.
    The Blond In The Shower Curtain. Who are you? And WHY????
    Lori Petty needs a straitjacket, but not this pink one.
    Rachel McAdams looked gorgeous, but a little too glamorous for the SAGS; this dress shrieks Oscar!
    Julianne Moore; j'adore ... but not in this look.
    Kayley Cuoco. Way too severe; plus I wanna pick her up by that top-knot and twirl her around.
    The Rooney Sisters. A new horror film???
    She's from Quantico; she's the Indian Jolie, or so they say!
    Latifah rockin' it old school, though she needs to come out already.
    Big Yellow Bow. Big Fat No.
    Viola Davis. Flaw.Less.Gorg.Eous.
    Susan Sarandon. Love her, but at 70 she needs to put the girls away, or at least tug 'em up a little.

    Loved your take, as always!!

  6. ONCE AGAIN,CRACKING UP .... Christina Ricci. Had it been shorter it could have been a Michelle Kwan skating outfit.

    Eva Longoria. JLo-lite. Try hard. Try TOO hard.

So, after my husband told me that I was mean to him I decided to make him his favorite dinner.  Roasted chicken, Stove Top stuffing and corn.  Hearty comfort food.  As you all know, our rule is -- whoever cooks, the other does the dishes.  

After enjoying our meal, and good night of TV, we headed upstairs to bed, BUT ... Danny remained downstairs, went into the kitchen and started doing the dishes!  As I relaxed in bed and heard him clanging the dishes as he did them I almost felt bad for him and contemplated telling him to forget the dishes ... do them tomorrow.  But I didn't.  I felt I had to stick to my guns.  

That morning, Danny was planning to spend the day with a friend at a racquetball tournament.  I was still sleeping as he kissed me good-bye.  I told him to have a good time and thanked him for doing the dishes last night.

When I woke up, THIS is what I found in my sink.  

I only wished I'd taken the picture before all the suds went away.  THIS is how Danny does dishes.  …


Danny has this disgusting habit of brushing his teeth and then rinsing his toothbrush and leaving it ALL WET in the toothbrush thing.  (See photo below.  A roll of toilet paper he sets on the counter like a cup and then sticks his toothbrush in the middle of it) ... what a genius huh?

The point?  Adisgusting, wet toothbrush will collect bacteria and mosquitoes and it's disgusting and filthy.  It drives me crazy.  Does he stop?  NO.  

What you're supposed to do is brush, rinse with HOT water and then DRY THE BRUSH THOROUGHLY ... THEN put it in the toothbrush thing.  IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

And how hard is it to take the yogurt OUT of the plastic bag?

God forbid he break a sweat. 

 Also, he never EVER closes a drawer, a cabinet, or a door ... EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't you HATE when your husband makes hamburgers ...

*sigh* ... my life.


An Ode to Viggo
Who knows where or when my love for you began it took me by surprise and filled up my whole life
Some laughed and called me mad but I knew that was sad for love cannot be mocked and Viggo, my world rocked
I've seen his every film, his songs, his poems and still I love him more each day and that's how it will stay  for in my dreams he lives
Each step through ether's door we meet forever more and so shall it remain until my life should wane
