This year's event was hosted by a funny man with crooked English teeth, and while I can't comment on his funniness because Downton Abby trumps the GGA's, I can tell you that these awards are given by something called "The Foreign Press Assocation." A little investigational digging has lead me to discover what the FPA is all about.
The sole member of the "Foreign Press Association" is a 9-year-old kid named Ghalib who writes press releases on a MAC out of his parents basement. He tivos the last half of the big night because he has to be in bed by 9:00.
This year, Ghalib requested each actor to wear an outfit as a tribute to something/someone
Emma Stone wore shoulder pads in solidarity with her little brother Everett
who is playing Pop Warner football this year.
Reese Witherspoon left her dress unhemmed, in honor of "those unsung heroes who alter clothes". The scarlet starlet wiped out three times tripping over her excess dress material and is resting today with an icepack.
Busy Phillips choked up as she dedicated her hair to her sister Wanda, who recently passed away but left her a "bump it"
The hirsute gentleman to the rear of Clive Owen dedicated his ensemble to "the sixties man...to the sixties."
Tilda Swinton blew a kiss to her twin brother, David Bowie
Pied Piper Perabo snuck in several homeless children under her voluminous gown
as a general protest against the Republican party
Juliana Margulies wore a sleek protest gown comprised of thousands of miniscule halibut scales painstakingly glued to a lightweight silk jersey by Alaskan fisherman who are out of work because of irresponsible oil spills caused by Mitt Romney
Sarah Michelle Gellar commissioned her daughter's Montesorri preschool group to tie dye the fabric for this voluminous gown constructed by the Jr. High sewing class as a reminder to "Sew as You Grow"
Angelina wore a valentine tribute for Brad but his embarrassing response was to bring the cane he uses to poke his wife under the table when she is over her 123 calorie per day allowance.
Nobody does tributes like Hollywood
