American Music Awards 2018 Recap

I don’t even know why I decided to watch this award show. I don’t know any of the performers or winners besides Taylor, Mariah, and Jennifer. I mean, the AMAs I grew up obsessing over brought me moments like these …

Seriously, the only thing I listen to is a rotation of Taylor, Justin, and Sam Smith (with some Shawn Mendes thrown in there; I LOVE HIS NEW ALBUM!). Other than that, I only listen to podcasts. Snobby much? But, I live for an award show or possible pop culture moment, so let’s get into it!

Hour 1:

The beginning of the whole show was my favorite part for many reasons: a) I was still awake for it b) Taylor Taylor Taylor Taylor Taylor c) the Shawn Mendas performance (la la la la love him!), d) that Ella Mai song (!!) which is now my new jam! e) seeing Mariah (note that I didn’t type “enjoying” Mariah).

As far as everything else, I’m a little peeved Justin Timberlake wasn’t nominated for favorite pop male artist, but whatever, I get that the awards are for mainly mainstream music. I’m a lot peeved by Tracee Ellis Ross; can she be more annoying and thirsty? I don’t watch Blackish, so maybe that’s why I don’t get her. I mean, she danced well and made a few funny comments … buuuut, well, I guess I’ll just stop there. Give me more Taylor.

Hour 2:

The middle of the show started strong with Cardi B performing, again, don’t particularly love her like everyone else, but I really think it’s just me not being in tune because I’m an old lady. I still listen to music that was popular twenty years ago and I won’t change. Anyway, I was really really happy to see Shawn Mendas win an award (but for adult comtempory waaah??), could have totes skipped the Halsey performance, and while I adore JLo so much, I didn’t necessarily enjoy the song she sang and felt it was a little too plug worthy (she looked a-maze-ing though!)

Hour 3:

I turned it off. It really had nothing to do with the show, but more so with the book I’m currently reading and wanted to finish, The Dark Matter. Oh gosh, am I officially really old? The only thing I wanted to see that I missed was the Aretha tribute (which I caught on Twitter the next day).

I find that these feelings of not enjoying music award shows increases with each one I watch. I skipped the VMAs this year, the Grammys were boring, and here we are with me shutting off with the AMAs before the show was even over. If you know anything about MHH, I live for an award show (any kind), I mean click up in the right hand of this page and see all the posts written about awards shows from the past year and half. But, I think music award shows are slowly fading into the background for me, mostly because I choose the music I listen to; I don’t let award shows or the charts decide for me.

Plus, Tracee Ross Ellis is so damn annoying!

Emmy Recap

Yesterday and all day today, every time I scroll Instagram, E! shares another photo from Monday’s 70th Primetime Emmy Awards. So I thought, I’ll write a recap, and here we are.

What I learned from watching the Emmys is that I clearly don’t watch as much TV as I thought I did … or I just don’t watch what is important. I was so beyond bored as I sat through all the Comedy and Limited Series awards. I don’t watch a single one of those shows. I get my comedy from Real Housewives and a Parks & Recs Netflix binge … the only limited series I watched this year was Waco, which I saw was nominated like once and lost.

Soooooo, what I’m getting at is … you were looking for my thoughts on the first two hours of awards?

Image result for I have none gif

One thing we can discuss? Fashion!! Some of my favorite looks included Emilia Clarke, Sandra Oh, and Ellie Kemper.Image result for emilia clarke emmys 2018Image result for sandra oh emmysImage result for ellie kemper emmys 2018

My favorite couple looks were ScarJo & Colin … and obviously Jessica & Justin! Which, now that I see them side by side, maybe they were my favs because they were so similar??

Image result for scarlett johansson and colin jost emmys      Image result for justin and jessica emmys

As for bad fashion? I was NOT here for Regina King as a highlighter, Tracee Ellis Ross as a teen girl’s comforter, or Chrissy Ty-ginn’s high neck chain gang look. Not posting pics because they were truly heinous (name that movie!).

Side bar: Why did I spell CT’s name like that? Haven’t you heard?? We’ve been saying it wrong all these years … along with Ariana Grande’s name! Plus, Burt and Ernie are gay together, and Kylie Jenner just tried milk in her cereal for the first time … LIKE, WHAT IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN AND THE BULLS*** THAT MAKES THE NEWS?! That I then must report on …      Image result for side smile gif

Moving on … I don’t know if it was the wine I was drinking, but I thought Colin and Michael were really funny, although some jokes and skits didn’t land (especially Maya Rudolph & Fred Armisen). In fact, much of the show felt like SNL skits … but honestly, I didn’t mind because I love Saturday Night Live. Clearly I have good taste because it won it’s 65th Emmy during the award show (at least, google said it was the show’s 65th award).

Image result for snl gif

It wasn’t until about two & a half hours in that I started getting excited. That was about the time Darren Criss won for American Crime Story and John Mulaney won for his stand-up! And if those two awards didn’t wake you up …… did the unexpected proposal??? You can read the whole story here! As cynical as I usually am, I thought it was super sweet!

Finally, just as I was about to turn the show off, I started to hear Game of Thrones, Westworld, This is Us, and The Crown. My category has arrived!

Image result for drama

Seriously, I was like a proud momma seeing Peter Dinklage, Thandie Newton, and Claire Foy win! Then … Game of Thrones taking Best Drama Series?!

Image result for who saw that coming gif

I mean, I hoped, but you don’t take over a year, almost two, off and still win do you? YOU DO! I’m currently reading the second book in the series in prep for 2019 and just so I still have some GOT in my life (I also play the theme at any jukebox bar I can find!). Bend the knee, it’s still the best on TV!

Image result for there you have it

I live tweeted the show; always go check me out on Twitter (find links when you scroll alllllll the way to the bottom of the blog –> IG is there too!). On deck this week is #RHOC & #RHOD, plus the hubs and I started watching Mayans M.C., the Sons spin off, and I plan to watch Sierra Burgess soon too!

Housewife Thoughts & OC Premier

Do your favorites change?

Or are you a ride or die girl for a particular housewife, no matter what she does? I only ask because with Orange County starting, I was curious to see where my feelings lie (lay? I don’t know …).

Image result for but first gif

This thought initially came to me when I was watching RHONY. I have said for years that Dorinda was my all-time favorite housewife, out of all cities. But I am just not feeling her this season, mainly because of how she’s been treating Sonja and Bethenny.

Image result for dorinda mean to sonja

Because of that, I am loving the Sonja/Bethenny friendship, which is so strange because Bethenny annihilated Sonja a couple seasons ago. I also was never a big Bethenny fan … yet I could not be more obsessed with the two! The scene where Bethenny was going over Sonja’s dating profile made me LOLOLOLOLOLOL!

Image result for sonja laughing

My RHONY world is shaken and my RHONY favorites are changing. Things look like they’re changing in the OC as well; literally the first 20 minutes were spent discussing new homes, new friendships, and new single statuses. After watching the entire episode, I think I’m going to be Team OG, meaning Vicki, Tamra, Shannon, and Kelly, mostly Kelly. I never ever ever ever thought I would like Kelly, but I think I’m going to enjoy watching single Kelly and single Shannon together this year.

Image result for shannon beador silent women

“Read between these lines” no more! 

I never like the new girls anyway, hence why I never really liked Kelly in the past. Tamra’s hiking/lawyer/party planner friend reminds me of a cross between Jeana Keough and Jacqueline Laurita. I’m not really here for her. The core four at the ropes course though,  totes here for it!

Screenshot 2018-07-17 at 5.17.54 PM

However, we have all season for feelings & favorites to change!

Image result for real housewives of orange county gif

I guess when it all comes down to it, if you’re a true housewife fan, your likes and dislikes should change every season, heck they could change from episode to episode. I only say this because we learn from the best: THE WOMEN! How wishy-washy are they? How many friendships evolve and change? Take each franchise …

What relationships haven’t broke?

RHOC: Tamra & Shannon?
RHONY: Sonja & Ramona?
RHOBH: Lisa & Kyle?
RHOA: umm…
RHOP: Gizelle & Robyn?
RHOD: Stephanie & Brandi?

Even these friendships have been tested throughout Bravo history. Heck, Teresa’s entire family fell apart! I mean, no relationship is safe if you’re a Housewife, and I think that means we as fans have every right to change favorites and stan someone new each season.

My Natalie Wood Obsession

It all started at a bar …

Doesn’t every great story though? My husband and I were casually enjoying cocktails one weekend, when a very inebriated, old man started talking to us. He mentioned I reminded him of Natalie Wood.

Image result for who gif

The man’s friend came to our rescue pulling his buddy away, but not before he, too, agreed on the Natalie Wood comment. When I asked who she was, the two men told us she was a beautiful, famous actress who mysteriously died … and her husband, also a famous actor, was always suspected to have something to do with it, but was never charged.

I was intrigued. 

I went home and googled a picture of Natalie Wood. She was absolutely gorg and I took it as the highest compliment that someone would see a glimmer of her in me.

Image result for natalie wood gif

To me, when you look at a picture of her, she exudes just pure, old Hollywood glam! So back to that weekend: the next day I had lunch with my mom and asked if she was a Natalie Wood fan. Once started, my mom couldn’t stop talking about the actress! She went on and on about how Wood was one of the most predominate film stars of her time, and how her death was beyond tragic.

She drowned. 

While it was ruled an accident, her famous husband, Robert Wagner, was believed to have played a part in her death.

Image result for conspiracy theory gif

After that weekend, I fell down a rabbit hole reading all about Natalie Wood’s rise to fame,  her film carrier, her relationships with men, and her mysterious death. My favorite source on the Natalie Wood death conspiracy was from BuzzFeed Unsolved.

If you are a true crime fan, or just like really interesting stories told with humor, subscribe to this YouTube series right now. I’m serious. Take a break from reading this post, open YouTube, search “BuzzFeed Unsolved” and subscribe. Now go back to your reading, then after, lose countless hours with Ryan & Shane, learning about all the popular crimes that were never solved.

Image result for staring at computer screen gif

While always intrigued by her, I hadn’t thought about Natalie Wood since probably last summer, until the wonderful Enty dropped all his 4th of July Blind Reveals. Now, if you’re sitting there confused in regards to Enty or the blinds, take one more break from reading this, and click here. Enty is an entertainment lawyer, who uses his website to post all these bizarre scandals about celebrities, which have a high percentage of turning out to be true!

So worth the read!

Look at me helping you build your reading skills today.  Image result for smile emoji gif  Back to Natalie Wood. So Enty revealed a blind about her death back in February, very similar to the BuzzFeed video.

Image result for looking at phone shocked gif

Scandalous!! and sad 😦

To honor the actress with not only my post, I watched West Side Story, one of Natalie Wood’s most famous films. Plus who isn’t in the mood for a 60’s musical from time to time? It did win Best Picture …

Image result for best picture west side story

… and is an important love story about acceptance; a story maybe more of us need right now.

Image result for natalie wood west side story gif

Beside West Side Story, Natalie Wood is famous for Rebel Without a Cause, alongside James Dean, who I just learned passed away this April. Don’t believe me?  Well then, this  is where I must leave you. To fall down that rabbit hole, be shocked, and then come find me to discuss … !!!

Movie of the Week: Netflix’s Set It Up

Netflix has been slaying the game lately with original content! There are the obvious choices like The Crown, Stranger Things & Unbreakable! Kimmy Schmidt. There there are the thrilling true-crime documentaries such as Making a Murderer, Evil Genius, & The Staircase. But, even their original movies have been successful, especially the spring and summer releases such as The Kissing Booth, Ibiza, Set It Up (which we’ll be discussing today).

If you didn’t catch our “Movie of the Week” post from The Kissing Booth, no worries! You can click right there —>  Movie of the Week: Netflix’s The Kissing Booth … I’m only bringing it up because a) it’s both a great movie & a great read and b) this post will be written in a similar fashion  Image result for smile emoji gif  Enjoy!!

40 Thoughts I had during the movie Set It Up:

  1. I could NOT be more excited for Glen Powell! I LOVED him in Scream Queens and Hidden Figures.
  2. I could NOT be more excited for Zoey Deutch! I LOVED her in Why Him?
  3. I could NOT be more excited for Taye Diggs. I LOVE him in everything, mainly Empire of recent.
  4. Meh, minimal excitement for Lucy Liu.
  5.   Warning … Spoilers ahead!

  6. I always love a good montage opening!
  7. Am I going to like this? I kind of feel it’s just the second coming of The Devil Wears Prada.

    Image result for devil wears prada gif

  8. Ohhhh Glen Powell has a girlfriend? Isn’t he going to date Zoey Deutch by the end of the movie?
  9. “But we’re not old enough to get married …” hahaha I kind of felt the same way when I got engaged.
  10. Oh snap did I know Pete Davidson was in this? And he’s gay in the movie? He’s super trendy right now #pariana

    Image result for pete davidson gif

  11. Was Pete Davidson’s hookup Cody from Big Brother??? Someone @ me … I’m too lazy to rewind.
  12. TITUS ANDROMEDON!!!!!!!!!!!

    Image result for titus andromedon gif

  13. Omg the elevator scene hahaha!
  14. The Kiss Cam wouldn’t go that long … but I’ll buy it for the movie.
  15. Glen’s girlfriend … Suess? Whatever her name is, I don’t like this story line … get with Zoey already!
  16. Lucy Liu just screamed, “THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT!” and my dogs started barking bahaha    Image result for giggle emoji gif

    Image result for set it up lucy liu

  17. I never had a salamander …
  18. Drunk Taye Diggs is great!
  19. Pete Davidson and Zoey Deutch as friends are great!
  20. Okay. Engagement party. The start of the Glenn & Zoey falling in love!

    Image result for netflix set it up

  21. I don’t know if he’s supposed to be joking with his dancing … but Glen Powell out on the dance floor is doing all of my exact moves!
  22. The bosses are getting engaged! Zoey gets to write! Glen gets a promotion! All is well!
  23. Oh noooo … Lucy Liu is actually a good person and Taye Diggs sucks; he’s going to break her heart!
  24. Every single rom com moment where everything gets ruined … and now it’s happened! Let’s see how it magically gets fixed in the end.
  25. “You’re not hard to get; you’re hard to earn.” awww all is right in the rom com world again!

    Image result for set it up netflix glen powell and zoey deutch
    Overall, I’d give it a 3/5 … maybe even a 3.5. I would have liked to see Lucy Liu end up with someone in the end, but I can appreciate the whole “She’s a strong woman who doesn’t need a man” idea, but it’s like, she’s already established and successful in her career, why can’t she have a good dude by her side too? Anyway, worth a watch with a girlfriend, some pizza, and a bottle of Rosé!

May 19, 2018

I am having a major Royal Wedding ending hangover, but luckily I can relive it all here! 

Welcome to My Hollywood Hangover, a pop culture blog started by a small-town, Kansas girl, obsessed with all things celebrities and Bravo TV. If you have never visited the site, go ahead and click on the four lines in the top right corner. There you’ll find all our past posts and you can also subscribe to get posts sent straight to your email the moment they’re released! If you aren’t new to MHH and are a friend … it’s so good to be back!! I’ve missed missed missed you!

Image result for kiss gif

Unless you live under a rock, wait scratch that, I have absolutely NO IDEA and no words to even describe how you wouldn’t know the Royal Wedding was this past weekend. It was absolutely EVERYWHERE, on every channel, and on every social media. I was here for ALL OF IT!

Image result for royal wedding gif

I remember being in college and waking my boyfriend, now husband, up at who knows what time to watch William and Kate get married. I wasn’t as into it as I was this wedding (we’ll get to that shortly), but I knew it was a global big deal and wanted to be witness to it.

Image result for royal wedding gif

Since I feel closer to Meghan and Harry’s ages, plus am obsessed with The Crown, and have read multiple Royal biographies, including Diana: Her True Story, I was way more invested this time around. PLUS Meghan is AMERICAN (not to mention bi-racial and a divorcee). With we learned anything from Wallace Simpson, this wedding was going to be a HUGE HUGE deal! I also learned from Vanity Fair’s ‘Love and Royals’ issue, Meghan and I are birthday buddies, so safe to say … I’m obsessed!

Screenshot 2018-05-20 at 5.28.13 PM.png

My spread at 3:30 am the day of the wedding!

So let’s get right to it shall we?!

Favorite Hat:

Hats on hats on hats! I’m not sure if you knew this but “tradition calls for morning dress and morning dress calls for a hat” according to Vanity Fair, so hats were required at Harry & Meghan’s wedding. Boy did we see some! My favorite, however, had to be Camilla Parker Bowels.

Image result for camilla parker bowles royal wedding 2018

While she may not be my favorite person in the story of the Royal Family, England has come to embrace her as a part of it. I loved the pink, I loved it’s size, and I loved the feathery look. Her hat synced her whole look together. Speaking of…

Favorite Look:

I did NOT want to give this award to this person, but there was no arguing. The person who had the entire look from dress to hat to shoes to plus one was Amal Clooney

Image result for amal clooney royal wedding

The canary yellow was bright and festive, fit for the beautiful day. The veil was subtle and perfect, but added to her hat. And that train on her dress?! If you watched live and were tuned in to the Today Show, Hoda and Savannah couldn’t stop talking about the train of her dress. The reason I say I didn’t want to annointe Amal with best look is because she’s an obvious choice. But, as I was watching back clips of guests walking in, Amal *literally* (Chris Trager voice) looked like a sculpted model. Serena Williams and Doria Ragland were runner -ups!

Most Disappointed:

I’ll come right out and say it: Abigail Spencer.

Screenshot 2018-05-20 at 6.01.59 PM.png

Google image search her and include the words “Timeless character” and you’ll probably get something very similar to this look right here, hence I say, she should have stepped it up for the Royal Wedding!

The Dress:

I figured Meghan wouldn’t wear anything flashy because a) the Royals are more understated, b) this is her second wedding dress, and c) she’s 36. When you’re mid-thirties, marrying for the second time and it’s to the Prince of England, flash isn’t a word used to describe the dress you’ll be wearing.

Image result for meghan markle wedding dress

So with that being said, I thought her dress was boring. Now, before you get set to argue me, it was only boring in comparison to Kate and Diana’s. Kate’s dress will go down in history as my favorite wedding dress ever, but that’s because I’m a big lace fan. My own wedding dress was covered in lace.

Image result for kate diana meghan dress

However, Meghan’s dress was absolutely perfect for this wedding and for her. It was elegant, simple, graceful, and I think the term all the news outlets used was regal. Because of that, it was perfect.

img_05291.png

And that veil! It was my favorite part of her look!

Many were saying Meghan’s makeup and hair were basic. I thought so too. But, the more I went back and looked at images of her and her dress, I actually liked that she had very basic makeup. I like that she looked like herself, kind of like an everyday Meghan. I wouldn’t want her to be wearing so much makeup, she didn’t look like we’d expect. Plus, she had enough love and Markle Sparkle in her eye, she didn’t need a ton of makeup!

IMG_0541.jpg

I don’t know who I stole this picture from, but the person *literally* made her into a Disney princess.

The Ceremony:

From the moment Meghan walked in by herself with grace, to Prince Charles leading her to Harry, the ceremony was beautiful. I love love LOVED the performance of “Stand By Me” by that gospel choir. But, my absolute favorite moments from the ceremony had to be how nervous Harry looked & his sweet sweet words to her. If you don’t know what I’m talking about her, simply look it up and you’ll find a million gifs of him saying things like, “You look amazing” and “I’m so lucky.” They both looked extremely in love; you could especially see it in their eyes. Also, for as nervous as Harry looked, Meghan looked cool as cucumber and super poised, which just shows that she can be the ying to his yang!

Final Thoughts:

If I didn’t already mention it, the wedding was everything to me. I loved how much of a big deal with was, how excited the world was, and how happy both Meghan and Harry seemed. I especially loved loved loved Meghan’s evening dress and that cool car Harry drove them in.

Image result for meghan markle evening dress

I’m so unbelievably sad it’s all over, but so incredibly happy I got to witness it and had social media to share my thoughts. Speaking of sharing my thoughts, school is out in two days! Then My Hollywood Hangover will be back in full force, and is planning to be bigger and better than ever!

Super Bowl Half Time Show — I Can’t Take It Anymore

My name is Katy and I am a Justin Timberlake fan.

0052

Going strong 20 years now, and honestly, I don’t care whether you are or not. I wasn’t going to comment on his Halftime Show from last night’s Super Bowl but then I thought of two things. One, this is my blog and my outlet to share MY opinions and what I LOVE, and if you know me, you know the love I have for JT is unconditional & never ending. Two, I’m tired of seeing all the hate on social media he got for the performance, so I’m here to defend defend defend!

Image result for justin timberlake superbowl halftime

Before we get into the actual performance, let’s just realize we live in a world right now where no one can do right (which I totally get is the pot calling the kettle black because majority of my blog is me complaining about actors or making fun of reality stars, but whatever I’m getting cheese fries). Timberlake got hate as soon as it was announced he was performing, especially from Janet Jackson fans, but come onnnnnnnnnnnnnn! I take a firm stance that his 2004 SB performance with her (#nipplegate) was completely planned and if you think for a second that it was a “wardrobe malfunction” then …

Image result for kristen taekman you're delusional

UGH and the #JanetJacksonAppreciateDay trending on Twitter?? Again I say, come onnnnnnnnn! Anyway, people were going to go in on him from the beginning no matter what, so he had quite a bit to prove.

IMG_0119

Not everyone was rooting against him though. Lady Gaga (who is a QUEEN) tweeted out support for him before the performance, wishing him luck, as did Jimmy Fallon. So let’s get into the actual performance and see why he succeeded when so many said he failed.

First, the audio. People were saying it was fuzzy; I didn’t hear fuzz, but I’m sure if people instead heard total clarity, they’d have then said he sang poorly live. Second, the Prince tribute. People were saying it was inappropriate and more; yet if he hadn’t done one, people would have been upset. Last, singing Rock Your Body (aka the #nipplegate song); it’s one of his biggest dance hits, and to those people saying he smirked right at the “Janet Line” you’re reaching so far your arms HAVE TO be tired! Seriously, watch the footage.

Image result for youre reaching gif

I have seen Justin Timberlake in concert and let me tell you, last night’s show was IT. That was a straight thirteen minute Justin Timberlake concert. Just like at one of his shows, he’s dancing and singing, and straight PERFORMING his heart out,  fusing songs together, singing all your favorites, plus moving all over the arena! He did the same thing last night. From starting underneath the stadium, then waltzing down onto the field to the main stage, then having a center stage where he could perform from any side of it, to straight dancing on the field, to performing with a marching band (which we’ll get to in a minute) to straight dancing into the crowd! Sheesh, I’m just tired describing it all! But at an actual Timberlake concert, it’s two hours of all that (and no one is rooting for him to fail).

Image result for justin timberlake gif
I promise I’m almost done ranting, but I want to discuss my favorite part of the whole show (and it wasn’t changing one middle schooler’s life by taking a selfie with him, but props for JT for doing it!) THAT! MARCHING! BAND! during Suit & Tie! Did anyone catch the football reference?

Image result for marching band super bowl 52 halftime show

Get it? Halftime of a football game and a marching band is performing? Also, raise your hand if you knew that was the actual University of Minnesota marching band? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Image result for marching band super bowl 52 halftime show

Well, if you’ve made it this far through the post, maybe I’ve started to convince you that his performance was outstanding and deserves credit, not criticism. If not, maybe these famous voices can help sway you because JT SLAYED AND KILLED SUPER BOWL LII!

“And the actor goes to …” 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards Recap (Pocket-Sized)

“We are living in a watershed moment in time and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race.” — Kristen Bell, 2018 SAG Awards Host

Image result for kristen bell gif

Ahh yes, another award show where actors toot their own horns by giving awards out to one another. However, here I am watching, but if I must watch, then I must critique! Don’t worry though, my critiques won’t be too tiresome; this is only a small batch, pocket-sized post! First up is Kristen Bell. She’s quoted above because she hosted the award show and was actually the show’s first ever host.  I just love love love love, love her so much. For all her great moments from the show, click here!

What I Learned

The thing I like most about the SAG Awards is it’s actors recognizing and awarding actors, which has to be a huge compliment right? I can only imagine if I went to an award ceremony for teachers, with the awards being presented by fellow teachers. That would have to be an extremely large pill to swallow because teachers do not like to credit other teachers (not all, some, okay most, hopefully I’m not offending all my teacher readers right now; please don’t leave). But it’s easier, probably in any profession, to celebrate one’s own acheivements, rather than recognize others.

Image result for toot my own horn gif

“My students scored this score on the state test” or “Look at this wonderful email a parent sent me telling me what a great job I do.” I’m sure actors are the same: “My movie made this much money” or “Look at the great review my movie received.” So, I would imagine winning an SAG Award is a big deal because people who usually want to brag on themselves this time want to brag on you!

Image result for sag award winners

Shout out to some of my favs on winning: This Is Us, Sterling K. Brown, Claire Foy, and Nicole Kidman!

What I Loved

Mother, freaking, girl power. I knew that Bell being the first ever host as a woman was a huge deal, and I knew the show was branded as “female-powered.” But, it wasn’t until the next day I realized, “Oh wow, only females presented!” It was really awesome to see; read more here!

What I Remembered

Still disappointed in myself as I have yet to see any of the films nominated this awards season; I’m such a failure.

Image result for movies nominated for best picture 2018

Fashion

I guess the “let’s all wear black” protest was over because there were many hues to found on the SAG red carpet. My picks for best dressed went to Kristen Bell (her red carpet look; she had quite a few wardrobe changes as host’s normally do, but actually looked amazing in all of them!), Nicole Kidman, Samara Weaving, and Yara Shahidi (pantsuit with a train for the WIN!)

Image-1 (1).png

My favorite looks of the night!

 

 

I really hate to have a worst dressed list because I get it, “fashion is art” and shit but low and behold here they are. Millie, you may be thirteen, but you can’t wear your Chucks to an award show; sorry, you can’t. I don’t even have to explain why I hate Kate’s dress, I mean you have eyes right? Same with Kate Nash. Maybe it was an off night for girls named Kate. Ugh, and Lupita almost made my list for best dressed until the camera panned down to the bottom of her dress. #nope (Her body looked sick though!)

Sorry ladies, not my favorite.

Lastly, why was Morgan Freeman wearing a hat?!

Moving Forward.

We have Oscar nominations tomorrow and the Grammys on Sunday! I love awards season!

Pocket-Sized Post: T. Swift Endgame Video

Endgame by Taylor Swift feat. Future & Ed Sheeran

Welcome to the first “Pocket-Sized Post” on My Hollywood Hangover! Basically this just means I’m too lazy to write a drawn out post regarding my topic, and let’s be honest, some of you aren’t here to read a full post either.

On the first small batch edition, we’ll be discussing Taylor’s new video. “Endgame” was initially my favorite song on Reputation so I was totes excited for the new video. (For more thoughts on the album click here: …Ready For It? Reputation Review)! From Miami, to Tokyo, to London, here are a few things I learned from the video:

Taylor drinks now.

I get it; she’s 28 and MORE than old enough to have a few drinks. Plus she mentions drinking and whisky on the new album. But, won’t she always seem like the sweet, young, innocent Taylor to us all? But the video does seem like she’s shoving the fact that she enjoys a cocktail down our throats, like “Heeeey! Look at me! I’m all grown up!”

At the same time, she’s almost 30, so do you girl!

Katy Perry was not there.

But was totes rumored to be in the video, right … to prove they mended things? Did I just not catch her? If reports come out later that Katy is in the video, just hidden somewhere I’ll be pissed because I was searching hard for her.

Taylor wears a nude lip.

Yet she’s wearing it AT THE EXACT MOMENT THE SONG IS QUOTING “the proof from [her] red lips.”

She rocks many different hair styles.

See above gif. LOVE LOVE LOVE the straightened, deep part, look. And as always, Taylor looks awesome with her hair styled any way … except when it looks drowned … as in her scenes with Future.

Overall … I liked it.
