Love a Navy Tux

I am a sucker for an awards show.  I love the glamour, the fashion hits/misses, good acceptance speeches and just the whole feel of the night.  The People's Choice last Wednesday really kicked off award season and last night was the Golden Globes.  This is usually a pretty good indication of who's going to take home Oscars.
Last night the stars really stuck with classic beauty and the mermaid gown.  Although I think it's funny to see a woman try to walk in a slim-fitting mermaid silhouette, it can look amazing when done right.  Take Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) in this Vera Wang custom gown:

A trend for the fellas last night was the navy blue tux which I think was stunning.  It must be tough for the guys to do anything but the classic black look and I really like this one, as seen on Episodes star and winner last night, Matt LeBlanc:

I didn't think there were any real surprise winners.  (See the list here)  But what I do realize is just how many high calibre television shows are being made on non-major networks.  Read: networks I do not get.  I am going to have to start hunting for shows like Episodes and Homeland.  
Also, I now have a massive list of movies to see.  One thing I don't like is how many movies are nominated for award shows that have yet to be released.  I can't wait to see The Iron Lady, The Descendants, and My Week with Marilyn, just to name a few.  I love that Octavia Spencer won for her role in The Help but I think the cast got missed in other categories.  That was an amazing film in my opinion.  
There was a lot of buzz and probably fear in the industry about what host Ricky Gervais would do or say last night after last year's performance.  I thought he killed it last year and although he was funny last night, too tame for my liking.  I think most of those celebs can be taken down a peg or two and he's great at it!
My only question, how can I get a job as a seat filler?  Bucket List.
