No Sight of Africa at the 2013 Golden Globes but Many Fab Moments! The Scoop, Winners & BN Style’s Red Carpet Faves

We had our eyes set out at the first global awards ceremony of the year – the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards which took place in style yesterday at the Beverly Hilton, California, USA.

Hosted by funny actresses, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who delivered a lot of comic jokes and taking  jabs at Taylor Swift, James Cameron and more, the comic divas were interesting right from the red carpet to the stage.

All eyes were on Ben Affleck who won the Best Director award and best motion picture drama for Argo, which was a shock to a lot of movie critics who speculated that Steven Spielberg‘s “Lincoln” would win the best picture as well as an award for his directorial work.

Also taking home top honors include Daniel Day-Lewis as best actor, Jessica Chastain as best actress, Christoph Waltz as best supporting actor and Anne Hathaway as best supporting actress, all in the drama category while on the TV scene, Lena Dunham won the best actress in a musical or comedy, Claire Danes won the best actress award for her dramatic portrayal in Homeland and Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in Game Change.

Honored for her work over the years, golden Hollywood actress, Jodie Foster who arrived in a halter neck Armani gown, delivered a tearful speech. The 50 year old Beaver star, addressed everything from her sexuality to her relationship with her mother.

Although Africa was missing in action both in nominations and the red carpet, BellaNaija brings to you a list of our best dressed celebrities at the event and the full list of winners.

Check it out!

25 Comments on No Sight of Africa at the 2013 Golden Globes but Many Fab Moments! The Scoop, Winners & BN Style’s Red Carpet Faves

  • wowwwww! January 14, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    Marinda Kerr look beyond stun!! Hollywood star are really a pace setter,even women beyond 50yrs look flawless with no sagging body or wat so ever! Naija celebrity pls take more note,we are tired of hearing that,African women need to be curvy!

  • Ginika January 14, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    Love Anne Hathaway’s look, simply gorgeous.

    I also love Jessica Alba’s dress, Taylor swift’s dress that back is just…

    Miranda Kerr and Halle’s dress were on fire but I don’t think I would personally rock those.

    Nene’s look doesnt look red carpet.

  • sigi January 14, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    Just be yarning dust for headline sake.Does it look like it was African Soap Opera awards?Where una wan take see Africa na?

    • Amazeballs! January 14, 2013 at 3:32 pm

      As in eh!!! please help me ask BN oh.

  • Ginika January 14, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    Oh Yeah, Kerry Washington looks very dry like she’s starving herself.

  • birdieblue January 14, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    Am I the only one who is tired of the cutouts, slits and sheer dresses? anyway my favorite look would have to be Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift and Julianne Hough

  • Sara Adebayo January 14, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    It is a pity that KERRY WASHINGTON just bleached off her natural African skin. This woman in the 90’s was my fav. then she started using these chemicals to just look white as many of my African sisters do now.. from my own homie sis Nigeria to Ghana, Senegal, Cameroon, Chad to name a few. Black is beautiful..bleaching our skin gives the white man more power that black is not beautiful.. Com’on ladies, lets be real and stay real.. No fakie fakie

    • Layo January 15, 2013 at 1:48 am

      Gosh, some of you are so obsessed with pointing out people who are “bleaching”. Sometimes it’s just the camera so, Bye!

  • Mz Socially Awkward… January 14, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    I love Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway’s dresses.

    Halle’s didn’t really do it for me and Lucy Lui just looked like someone draped a bedsheet on her (I love Lucy and Caroline H. but not that dress). Jodie Foster is 50??? wow. Time’s really marching on for all of us…

    • Nkechi January 14, 2013 at 4:40 pm

      Bedsheet ke? The thing looks like a curtain or those old flowery couches in English houses back in the day better still she looks like one huge flowery wallpaper! LOL

  • giggy January 14, 2013 at 3:17 pm

  • Chum chum January 14, 2013 at 3:28 pm

  • konnie January 14, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Pray, why were you looking for Africa in golden globes?

  • ify January 14, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    We just like to think Negetive sha! Why . Why can’t Africa be at the golden globes? Africa is a big continent and Nollywood and South Africa are doing well. Hollywood is partial to coloured people morons! How many Black Americans do you see winning awards in Hollywood. How much more Africans?only Charlez Theron who is white African so far… That should change soon …but encourage ours, they are fighting and working hard despite all odds!!!

  • ttt January 14, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    Thissss people take care of their body reasons the clothes fit PERFECTLY. It pays to be FIT, FIT is CONFIDENCE. Naij ladies and women lets start exercising and stop concentrating on hot creams!!. Even your skin will glow and be beautiful because its breathing. and less cream will be needed. Thats the secret to being PICTURE PERFECT and RED CARPET READY

  • fashionandstylepolice January 14, 2013 at 11:51 pm

    My favourites were Taylor Swift, Anna Hathaway, Michelle Dockery, Julianne Hough and Am Adams. My least favourites were Lucy Liu, Rachel Weisz, Sienna Miller, Jessica Chastain and Amy Poehler.

  • Keepingitreal January 15, 2013 at 6:30 am

    @Ginika, I quite agree with you. Kerry Washington didn,t cut it for me. So dry and looking sick. Hope she has not gone back to her old ways!

  • Bidi bang January 16, 2013 at 5:45 am

    How can any sane person mention nollywood actresses on here these actresses are mega millionaires and can afford the world and ppl lionize them than we do our very own..so why wont they look fab. Maybe if we start paying money to go to the movies and watch our movies, maybe our stars can be equal to task but I ont see dat Hanning in the nig too many haters that will not allow our stars breathe….oops there it is.

  • Tosin January 17, 2013 at 8:59 am

    I am not disappointed in Halle Berry, her dress is hot. The gold on white Ryan Seacrest chic’s dress is nice and fun, could be worn by a bride who doesn’t care to dress in all white.
    Those two are my fav dresses in this album, then also Lucy Liu and J.Lo.
    Nice album, BN.
