Let’s face it, although the Hollywood Foreign Press Association hands out annual awards in a variety of television and film categories, most people really consider the Golden Globes a fashion show and an early indicator of Academy Award potential. Judging by this year’s results, Avatar, which won for Best Picture (Drama) and Best Director (James Cameron), emerged from the evening with the most Oscar buzz.

 

In the acting categories, perennial-nominee (24) Meryl Streep took home her 7th trophy for Julie & Julia, while Sandra Bullock won one for the first time in four tries for The Blind Side. Mo’Nique was a shoo-in for Precious in the supporting actress category, as was Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds.

 

Lead actor-honorees Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) and Robert Downey, Jr. (Sherlock Holmes) appear headed for a showdown at the Oscars, although common sense says George Clooney will remain in the mix. Still, Bridges enjoyed the early edge given his body of work, his pedigree, and the fact that he’s been an Academy Awards also ran on several occasions.

 

As for the evening gowns, most were understandably subdued, given the ongoing tragedy over in Haiti, with glaring exceptions Halle Berry and Mariah Carey turning heads in low-cut outfits ostensibly designed to draw a lot of attention to their golden globes. Rest assured, decadence and excess will be back in fashion on the red carpet by the time the Oscars roll around, so brace yourself for a perfunctory parade of gaudy baubles and gratuitous cleavage on March 7th.
