A Historic Moment For Women Directors


The 2021 Golden Globe nominations presented a historic moment for women directors everywhere. In a category that has only nominated 5 women in its 77-year history, three received nominations this year. Chloe Zhao, Regina King, and Emerald Fennell are all up for the Best Director accolade, alongside David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin. With Barbra Streisand being the only woman to have won, these nominations are raising a lot of hope. 

While the Academy is yet to nominate an Asian American woman director, Chloe Zhao is the first to be nominated in Golden Globes’ history. Nominated for “Nomadland”, she has enjoyed quite the success for it already. Nomadland is the first film ever to win the top prize in both Toronto International and Venice Film Festivals. It received four Golden Globe nominations.

Fellow nominee, Regina King is no stranger to stacking up trophies either. King’s “One Night in Miami”, her feature directorial debut, earned three nominations. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival, a first for an African American woman director, and received an outpour of appreciation. While she already boasts quite the impressive list of wins, people hope she will bag this one too. Many have however drawn attention to its absence from the screenplay category.

Emerald Fennell’s “Promising Young Woman” has also enjoyed stellar success and has received four Golden Globe nominations. It is also her feature directorial debut.

How celebratory is this moment?

The question here would be, is it too little and too late? One has to admit that news of this kind is always a little sad. Precisely because these moments are “historic” even now and far from regular. Women directors are yet to occupy their rightful place in cinema.

The nominations this year are undeniably a result of the severe backlash that the industry has met with recently. A lack of recognition of racially diverse films led to #OscarsSoWhite, just as the same for female-centric narratives led to outrage last year. In 2020, women directed a record number of movies. The last year has thus seen many a historic moment for women directors. However, as far as Golden Globe nominations go, Michaela Cole’s “I May Destroy You” was tragically snubbed.  Additionally, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” undeniably deserved more recognition. Regardless, many are hopeful as it is a definite improvement on last year. It’s safe to say that even though the industry has a long way to go, we might just be on the right path.

Our Favorite 2018 Awards Season Looks


From the Golden Globes to the Oscars, the biggest starlets in Hollywood have gathered together on numerous occasions in 2018 to celebrate achievements in television, film, music, production, and more. With every awards ceremony comes a glamorous red carpet pre-show, where celebrities dazzle in the latest luxury brands from Prada to Chanel. Each show brings its own variety of eye-catching trends and styles that are sure to dominate the majority of the year. From blush pinks to deep v-necks, textures to patterns, and one-shoulders to bow fronts, the celebrities know how to make a statement! Below are some of our favorite looks from this year’s Awards Season.


The Golden Globes Awards

Both Zoe Kravitz and Dove Cameron stunned in their black sheath silhouettes. Simple, yet elegant, these sleek looks are the perfect combination of effortless beauty and breathtaking at the same time. Kravitz and Cameron reinforce the statement that less is more, especially when it comes to dresses. Paired with statement earrings or a bow-tie belt, this sophisticated look makes a statement without being over the top.

Critics’ Choice Awards

These looks are minimalistic, yet elegant. Traditional shades of black or white never fail to stun, especially when worn in a classy style such as these. The red carpets are known for their bold outfit choices, but these are two looks the average person would actually consider wearing. While Hyland’s dress resembles Haute Couture, it is eye-catching enough to turns heads without distracting from her natural beauty. Dern, who opted for a sleek jumpsuit, is both refined and beautiful in her black ensemble.

The Producers Guild of America Awards

A little black dress is always an appropriate outfit choice. Both Robbie and Longoria dazzled on the red carpet with their sleek dresses complete with shoulder pads or puffy sleeves. Styled with minimal accessories and a pair of black heels, these were easily two of the most sophisticated looks worn during the Awards Season by the starlets.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards

Kristen Bell’s deep pink dress and Yara Shahidi’s sleek black jumpsuit were two of the most breathtaking outfits on the red carpet. The rich color of Bell’s dress stands out from the crowd and compliments her soft features nicely. Shahidi’s jumpsuit is a classic, elegant look, and the trail of fabric adds a unique detail. Another set of simple looks paired with subtle accessories or a deep shade of lipstick that reinforce natural beauty.

The Grammys

Camila Cabello and Hailee Steinfeld walked the red carpet in bold pops of color. Vibrant colors always stand out against the crowd, especially bold reds or purples. Both Cabello’s and Steinfeld’s dresses feature flattering cut outs on either the front or the side of the dresses and show off their curves nicely. Cabello paired hers with a disco ball clutch and Steinfeld wore purple pointed toe boots for an added flair.

The British Academy of Film and Television Academy Awards

Both Angelina Jolie and Emma Roberts were stunning in their classic black dresses. Jolie, in her elegant bardot style dress made of velvet, captured the crowd’s attention with her beauty. Paired with simple black heels and statement earrings, her simplicity is timeless. Roberts, in a low-cut black couture dress, has a slit on the side similar to Jolie’s dress. She also choose simple black heels and statement earrings to complete the look without taking away from the dress. The stars wore black to this event to stand in solidarity with the Time’s Up Movement, which provides support to those who have experienced sexual harassment.

Independent Spirit Awards

For this event, the dresses ranged in all different colors and styles. Patterns and textures were popular elements of most of the stars’ dresses, especially Amanda Seyfried’s and Saoirse Ronan’s. Seyfried, wearing a graceful white dress with lace detailing, opted for a simple ponytail and nude heels to complete the look.There are several cutouts on the front of the dress and a high-low element on the sides but the dress is every bit as elegant as Seyfried. While Ronan’s dress is much brighter, the floral pattern and beaded neckline adds character. The statement earrings she paired it match perfectly as do her gold heels.

The Oscars

Haute Couture gowns thrived at the Oscars this year. From lace to floral print designs, some of the most beautiful gowns were worn to this event on March 4. Allison Williams and Mira Sorvino both wore nude dresses, which was a popular color at this awards show. While the colors of their dresses are fair, the detailing is exquisite. Williams’ dress is complete with a beaded bodice, and Sorvino’s dress is covered in fabric flowers for extra elegance. Simple jewelry and accessories were worn by both to avoid taking away from the gowns.

The Best Beauty Looks from Awards Season


Hands down, awards season is one of our absolute favorite times for the Cliché family—besides NYFW, of course. It’s a moment made not only for well-deserved recognition, stellar red carpet looks, and who’s bringing who as a plus one chatter, but it’s also a moment frozen in time for the best beauty looks we will spot all year. We gain so much inspo while tuning in right at home for makeup to do’s to the next, you know, red carpet we’ll be seen in…i.e. the next wedding we’re invited to. But let’s be honest: you don’t need a fancy awards show invitation to appreciate the goddess-like makeup we see presented. Nor do you even need a reason to try them out or create your own makeup look inspired by them! We’re all for being glammed up with nowhere to go. Just catch us on the couch with a bottle of wine and an episode of Gilmore Girls playing; we’ll give you an award just for the pure fabulousness of it. With that all being said and done, we’re rounding up the best beauty looks from this year’s awards season that we can all continue to be in awe of until the next awards season.

The Best Looks from the 2017 Golden Globes


Awards season has officially begun, and last night, the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards gave way to some seriously stunning red carpet looks. While our favorite celebrities gathered to celebrate the best in film and television, we ooh’d and ahh’d at their gowns, pantsuits, and tuxedos. Trends included dusty pinks (as seen on Emma Stone and Lily Collins), deep reds (see Christine Evangelista and Brie Larson), and sparkly sequins in black, white, or nude (slay, Tracee Ellis Ross and Amy Adams!). Designers Zuhair Murad and Elie Saab reigned supreme, and hair and makeup stylists were praised by many on Twitter. All in all, it was one stunning night.

Check out some of the best looks from the 2017 Golden Globes below!

The Golden Globe Awards 2016 Highlights


Drumroll, please, for last night’s “party of all reward parties,” essentially The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. It was exactly how hostess Liliana described it: expect the unexpected! From the spectacular fashions to draw dropping wins and speeches, this year’s ceremony brought strong competition between film and television, and Cliché has The Golden Globe Awards 2016 Highlights for you here!
Welcoming Back Host: Ricky Gervais

He was a topic of discussion during the Fashion Highlights, and with good reason. The return of Ricky Gervais was enough to keep audiences at the Golden Globes and those watching at home with tense smiles and baited breath, wondering what he was going to say next. Overall, Gervais, with his “it’s funny because it’s true” moments and all, did a good job of hosting; though, Matt Damon might feel otherwise. (Sorry, Matt.)

The epitome of elegance and grace, Kate Winslet, never ceases to amaze us with her loveliness — be it her diction, dress, or overall being. And yes, Kate, we couldn’t agree with you more: 2015 was an incredible year for women in film.

These two beauties were a hilarious duo. They had a harmonious chemistry, and to be honest, we’re envious of their sharp-witted, inside humor. We wished we could’ve sat with them at the after-party.

Who else had goosebumps when Sylvester Stallone received his award? It was the first standing ovation of the night, and no one seemed to be more shocked than Sylvester himself. It was a moment that left us with all the feels.

Though music came first, acting has been a close second calling for artist and singer Lady Gaga. Her guest appearance on American Horror Story: Hotel! showed us her flexibility and creativity in the entertainment and music industry. Not to mention, Lady Gaga’s speech was as beautiful as she. (On a side note: what was up with Leo’s side-eye? We spy memes.)

Cheers to our boy, Sam Smith! We couldn’t be happier for this gentleman who’s a sweetheart through and through, and of course, a genuinely talented artist, too.

Tom Hanks presented the most touching speech in admiration and respect for Denzel Washington. Listening to Tom Hanks’ speech and watching Denzel Washington’s reaction was enough to have us reaching for the tissues. We couldn’t think of a better person to have been honored with such an award; congrats, Denzel!

After much waiting and anticipation, Taraji finally received the recognition she deserves! (By the way, we would’ve loved some of those baked cookies!) Her award for her role as Cookie proves that the character’s personality is what our society longs for: to answer without hesitation or manipulate words, as described by Taraji during the Fashion Highlights.

The look of anticipation on Leonardo’s face could be felt through television screens and right into our hearts. We practically felt the anxiety riding within him, as everyone waited to hear the results, but how could we blame him? After listening to Leonardo’s interviews on the red carpet and acceptance speech regarding The Revenant, it’s no wonder the man was almost brought to tears when his name was announced. Now how about the next stop: the Oscars?!
Other winners from the night included:
Best Performance By A Supporting Actress In A Mini-Series or Television Movie: Maura Tierney, The Affair (1st win & nomination)

72nd Annual Golden Globe Winners


The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards saw big wins for films Boyhood, The Theory of Everything, and Birdman—but also for rising star Gina Rodriguez. The 30-year-old’s portrayal of Jane Villanueva in the CW’s new series Jane the Virgin won her her first Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, beating out like Lena Dunham (Girls), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black).
“This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” Rodriguez said, teary-eyed, during her acceptance speech. “My father used to tell me to say every morning that today is going to be a great day. I can and I will. Well, Dad, today’s a great day. I can and I did.”
It was also a big night for Eddie Redmayne, who won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for his incredibly heartbreaking portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. The 33-year-old English actor beat out other excellent actors including Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher), David Oyelowo (Selma), and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler).
A noteworthy moment of the night was when Transparent won for Best TV Comedy and director Jill Soloway gave a touching acceptance speech about the transgender community. “I want to thank the trans community. They are our family and they make this possible,” she said. “This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn, and too many trans people who died too young.”
George Clooney was also presented the Cecil B. DeMille award for his “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” and Kevin Spacey finally won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama, for his role in the Netflix-exclusive series House of Cards.

20 Years Later & Mrs. Doubtfire Is Back


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox 2000 reportedly has a follow-up in the works for the 1993 hit “Mrs. Doubtfire”.  The studio will be bringing back the star of the original movie Mr. Robin Williams, who is now 62.
In the first movie, Williams played a struggling actor and recently divorced father of three who, in order to be closer to his children, takes on the persona of a Scottish nanny, Euphegenia Doubtfire. The hillarious, heart warming, family oriented film was an automatic hit, and made more than $400 million at the time. Williams even took home a Golden Globe that year for Best Actor in a Comedy and the film won in the Best Musical/Comedy category.
Fox 2000 has reportedly been trying to to get this project in motion since 2001, but despite many drafts and failed attempts, the project slowly died and has been inactive for years, mainly due to Chris Columbus (the original film’s director)  and Williams not sparking to any new take. The project became active again early this year when David Berenbaum the writer of the Christmas favorite “Elf”, got on board and agreed to write the new script.
20 years later & Mrs. Doubtfire is back with a sequel? How exciting! The original movie was so hilarious and did very well, so I’m sure the sequel will be just as great. What makes it even better is that Robin Williams will be returning to one of the comedic roles that put him on the map as an actor, and continuing to make us all laugh hysterically.
