69th Golden Globe Awards: Celebrities Who Stand Out

The much awaited winners for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards were finally named on Sunday (January 15, 2012), at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California.

George Clooney was hailed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) as Best Actor in the Motion Picture (Drama category) for the film “The Descendants” while the Best Actress was awarded to Meryl Streep for the film “The Iron Lady”. Other winners in a Motion Picture under Musical or Comedy category were Jean DuJardin (Best Actor for the film The Artist) and Michelle Williams (Best Actress for the film My Week with Marilyn).  Christopher Plummer for the film Beginners and Octavia Spencer for the film Help also received the title as Best Supporting Actor and Actress of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards. You can also check here for more lists of winners.

Aside from knowing who are lucky to receive an award from HFPA, there’s still one thing that makes a few female celebrities noticeable as they step on the red carpet. And that is no other than but their nicely-fitted outfits. So let’s check out who these actresses are. 

Angelina Jolie, the 36-year-old humanitarian and actress, step on the red carpet wearing this well-designed white-off shouldering-baring Atelier Versace gown accented by a sharp triangle of red around the collar. Her outfits is  one of the best gowns of the evening.

Nicole Kidman also arrives at the Beverly Hilton Hotel wearing an off-white fitted Atelier Versace gown studded with gold detail.

Even though she may have missed out the Best Actress Award (TV show category), Zooey Deschanel still dazzles in this Prada dress embroidered with black and dark green pearls; and collar framed with ivory pearl.

Who would say that she’s 64? Glenn Close, another Best Actress nominee, looks classy elegant in this black velvet dress and matching shawl.

Emma Stone also looks sophisticated and lovely in this Lavin gown as she steps on the red carpet.

The Golden Globe Award is an accolade bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to recognizing excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign. And looking at the photos above, this year’s ceremony seems to follow a minimalist theme as bouquets of flowers, punch, and trippy colors are missing on the red carpet. Most outfits of celebrities come in simple embroidery designs  no prints and not even underwent through cheap digitizing.
