The Golden Globes on Sunday night were full of surprises: Jodie Foster's speech. Former President Clinton introducing best dramatic picture nominee "Lincoln. " And "Argo" taking not only that prize but also generating a win for director Ben Affleck, who wasn't even nominated for an Oscar in that category. Join Times staff writer Amy Kaufman for a Google+ Hangout at 10:15 a.m. Monday as she talks about Sunday's event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which presents the Globes, also gave three awards to "Les Misérables," Tom Hooper's adaptation of the long-running stage musical set in 19th century France.

During her royal tour of New Zealand this month, Catherine, duchess of Cambridge, stepped out in a sharply tailored, custom Alexander McQueen coat and a perfect ponytail. Smoothly volumized, with a wide lock of hair wrapped around the band, Middleton's pony looked relaxed yet royally polished. Kate's 'do garnered raves on fashion and style blogs, showing she's not alone in appreciating the dependable hairstyle that works day and night, rain or shine. More than a fast solution on bad hair days, it's an instant styling trick - the ponytail's effortless, devil-may-care attitude balances the formality of structured suiting, dazzling jewelry and elegant dresses.

High-low hems served to highlight some killer shoes at the 2014 Golden Globes on Sunday, so killer in fact, that Emma Thompson kicked her Louboutins off and said, “See this red? It's my blood.” When it came to bags, Brett Heyman's Edie Parker line of retro glam clutches dominated much of the red carpet. Big earrings were a trend. But otherwise, jewelry was quieter than usual, except if you're Sofia Vergara in the Lorraine Schwartz turquoise collar. Here are the best accessories. [For the Record, 11:28 a.m. PST Jan. 13: An earlier version of this post misspelled Brett Heyman's name as Britt Heyman.

One of the last remaining stars of Hollywood's golden era, Mickey Rooney was born to vaudeville parents, and appeared with them onstage by the age of 1. He became a star when he was signed to play the part of comic book hero Mickey McGuire in a series of successful shorts that began in 1927 with "Mickey's Circus" and ended with "Mickey's Derby Day" in 1936. But it was at MGM in the 1930s that the diminutive dynamo hit real fame, particularly with the "Andy Hardy" movie series that launched in 1937.

"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.

Conan O'Brien will host the youthful, pop-oriented MTV Movie Awards for the first time on April 13 at the Nokia Theatre, the late-night host announced on "Conan" on Tuesday. At 50, he is the oldest performer ever to host the show, which tends to favor twenty- and thirty-something comedians for its podium gigs. O'Brien is a seasoned awards show emcee, having hosted the Emmys in 2002, 2003 (as a co-host) and 2006. He could lend a bit of legitimacy to an MTV event that previous hosts such as Rebel Wilson (2013)

The red carpet was buzzing, and actress Riley Reid was trying to practice her acceptance speech. But a sheepish fan in a bow tie wanted a picture. Fellow performers wanted good-luck hugs and kisses. Reporters wanted interviews. Reid, 22, said she'd spoken with her mother before the show and they talked about what the actress might say if she won Female Performer of the Year. Her mom wanted a shout-out from the stage. After all, the actress had inherited one of her better-known attributes from her. Reid had promised she wouldn't forget her. "It's super-flattering and I would be super-happy if I won," Reid said.

In the long run, it doesn't matter whether you believe the tragic story of Dylan Farrow, who alleges that her father Woody Allen sexually assaulted her 20 years ago when she was 7 years old. Nor does it matter whether you believe Woody Allen, who was never charged with a crime, and who has steadfastly maintained his innocence. This scandal is and will remain a case study in frustration. We will never know for sure what happened. And yet our impulse is to take sides. But to what end?

Color us delighted if the next faux Hollywood feud is between George Clooney and Tina Fey. Clooney is doing the rounds for appearing in the Oscar-nominated lost-in-space flick "Gravity" and sitting as producer on "August: Osage County," which received Oscar nods for actresses Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Fey, who served as co-host of the Golden Globe Awards with Amy Poehler  this month, got one of the show's biggest laughs when she poked fun at the "Gravity" star and his high-profile proclivity for dating younger women.

Re coverage of the Golden Globes awards, Jan. 18: I was excited as I tuned in to the Golden Globes show but emcee Ricky Gervais changed that fast. His monologue was so offensive I switched channels fast. A.J. Buttacavoli Oakland :: Too bad the Golden Globes award show was marred by the inglorious appearance of presenter Mel Gibson, James Cameron's inglorious "I have to pee" remarks and some of host Ricky Gervais' inglorious jokes. Carol Polk Dana Point :: How nice it might have been if, instead of talking about his urinary habits, James Cameron could have given a well-deserved nod to Peter Jackson's Weta studios in New Zealand for their innovative and revolutionary digital programs and groundbreaking visual effects techniques.

The big winner in this year's Hollywood awards season: the local economy. Hundreds of millions of dollars are funneled into hotels, restaurants and limousine companies as Los Angeles hosts the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Academy Awards and related events. The money pumped into the Southern California economy comes at a welcome time. The awards season that stretches from January to March falls within a typically slow period for tourism around the country.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards -- the Hollywood awards show where actors honor their own -- is considered one of the more reliable predictors of Oscar gold, in part because actors represent such a large voting block in the motion picture academy. The show is also, in contrast to the often tart and freewheeling Golden Globes, a major love fest. There's no host making cutting jokes about the nominees and no music cutting off the speeches. And there is usually at least one moment when someone holds up a SAG card.
