"Hotel Transylvania" director Genndy Tartakovsky was watching TV when the Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday morning and didn't hear his movie -- or any other animated titles -- named. Instead, Tartakovsky found out by text that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had nominated his film for best animated feature, along with Mark Andrews's "Brave," Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie," Peter Ramsey's "Rise of the Guardians" and Rich Moore's "Wreck-It Ralph. " "Animators, we're always the last to know," said Tartakovsky, the sixth director to come aboard the monster comedy, which ended up being a surprise hit for Sony Pictures Animation.

It's a chilly 56 degrees in L.A. today. So will Hollywood shiver its way down the red carpet or cover up with capes and furs? Shiver, at least judging from the strapless early arrivals. I guess you don't spend all those hours at SoulCycle to cover up. So far, I haven't been wowed by any of the gowns. Debra Messing is in a rather simple Donna Karan strapless black ruched silk organza creation, and Claire Danes is in an equally understated red carpet red halter gown by Versace. Julianne Hough's white Monique Lhuillier gown with gold, shard-like beading on the bodice has a little more spunk.

Dior's new designer Raf Simons has dressed a constellation of stars in recent months, including two of the highest profile guests at tonight's awards. Both ladies wore red, Jennifer Lawrence in a strapless, 1950s-ish style dress with a molded bustier that sent the Twitterverse into overdrive chattering about her assets, and Marion Cotillard in a more demure red column with draped detail, which was whipped up by Simons especially for her. Any pizazz that Lawrence might have had was deflated as soon as she opened her mouth.

The Golden Globes awards show is over, but it isn't out of the headlines yet. The show's future might be settled in court next week as the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. , which created and owns the Golden Globes, fights a legal battle with Dick Clark Productions, which produces the show. Entertainment business reporter Joe Flint says the association is suing Dick Clark Productions because it believes the company violated their partnership by signing a new contract with NBC without the HFPA's approval. Hollywood heavyweights who might take the stand include HFPA Chairman Philip Berk, Dick Clark, Dick Clark Productions Chief Executive Mark Shapiro and former NBC business affairs chief Marc Graboff, who negotiated the TV deal on the network's behalf.

Is this the postpartum red carpet or what? All the commentators seem to be able to talk about is who has lost the baby weight (Claire Danes) and who might be pregnant (Anne Hathaway). But enough about that, let's talk about the clothes. Sexy as hell in a cream, body-baring Zuhair Murad gown, Jennifer Lopez finally gave us the fashion moment we had been waiting for, and one to rival that famously low-cut leafy print Versace gown she wore to the Grammys in 2000. On the other end of the spectrum, another winner is Julianne Moore, wearing of-the-moment black-and-white by Tom Ford.

OK, award trackers, you now know what you're doing now in January. The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. announced Thursday morning that the 69th Annual Golden Globe awards will be held on Jan. 15, 2012, the same time frame as this year's show. While there was much lamenting this year over the fatigue that accompanies the long season, nothing is changing date-wise with either of the major shows in 2012: The Oscars will still be held on the same weekend at the end of February and the Golden Globes will attempt to set the stage for the season with its mid-January event.
