Gone Girl‘s Rosamund Pike showed off killer curves in a daring, white Vera Wang number — all the more impressive given that she gave birth to a baby boy only five weeks ago. “I’ll be running off after the carpet to go and give him his lunch!” she told Ryan Seacrest, as our gluttonous gluteus made plans to skip lunch for the next month or two.
EVERYBODY WANG-CHUNG TONIGHT?
Seacrest wound up in the middle of an accidental double-entendre during his interview with Naomi Watts (in a daring serpent necklace) and her hubby Liev Schreiber. “Do you get involved [with Naomi’s styling], Liev?” asked the red-carpet host. “No, just in the angle of the snake,” said Schreiber, causing a nervous Seacrest to giggle and declare, “We’re referring to the necklace!” We could’ve lived without his followup query – “Is it soft?” — but then we remembered we were watching E!, not PBS.
BEST TONIC TO A MIND-NUMBING EXTRAVAGANZA
Just when we thought we couldn’t handle another inane musing from Kelly Osbourne, there arrived a vision in violet — The Good Wife‘s incomparable Christine Baranski on the 360 Glam Cam. What an oasis on a network usually populated by things that crawled forth from the Kardashian soup!
BEST DRAMATIC SIDE EYE IN A RED-CARPET INTERVIEW
“There’s a lot of people I love on Twitter, but unfortunately you can’t read those without reading deranged neo-cons telling you you should be buried under a pile of rocks,” said Lena Dunham, discussing her decision to delete her Twitter account. Seacrest’s painfully naïve response — “Come on, that doesn’t happen!” — resulted in a “Hostbot, pleeeease!” expression from the Girls that didn’t require a single word of context.
BEST/WORST CLOSEUP (DEPENDING ON YOUR PREDILECTION)
E!’s toe-to-head assessment of Matt Bomer included a celebratory raised fist rising up just below the White Collar star’s crotch. We leave it to you as to whether the correct exclamation was “YAY!” or “Yay?”
IT’S TIME TO PLAY “NAME THAT STARLET!” GAME
Can anyone tell us the name of this Red Carpet beauty? Because contrary to E!’s chyron, she is not Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner.
MOST DRAMATIC MAKEOVER
As Giuliana Rancic raved over Jennifer Lopez’s red-carpet arrival — she never disappoints! how does she get her hair so flawless?! — FX’s head of publicity John Solberg blocked E!’s camera operator — creating a delicious juxtaposition between word and sound. “If this guy would just get out of her way for a second!” huffed the hostess. Right? How dare a mere mortal exist in J.Lo’s personal space!
CLASSIEST COMEBACK TO A DEEPLY UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATION
After Seacrest presented recently married George Clooney and his wife Amal with a groan-inducing “Game Over” bride-and-groom t-shirt, the Gravity star — whose beaming smile never wavered — threw amusing shade back at the never-married host. “It’s all up to you now: Good luck!”
REAL PEOPLE NEED STYLISTS, TOO!
“This is your first Globes? I don’t buy that,” Ryan Seacrest declared to Emma Stone’s gum-chewing, regular-suit-wearing brother Spencer. Um, unfortunately, we do. Maybe next time big sis can spring for a tux at least?
Giuliana Rancic spent most of the two-hour pre-show anticipating her big moment with George Clooney — so much so that when he and wife Amal Alamuddin finally approached her, E! totally cut off its in-progress interview with Benedict Cumberbatch! Was it really worth snubbing Sherlock for that silly drinking gag?
